Like Hui-Neng’s story, there are many other Zen stories which have been passed through generations. Here we have selected 3 Zen short stories with incredible depth. Some of you may be revisiting these stories and for some of you, these stories may be entirely new. As is common with all Zen stories, these stories have the capacity to captivate and confuse us at the same time. In other words, they are puzzles with some age-old wisdom.

“Zen shorts” are short meditations

I love Zen stories. Not just because I find them fun, because I do (most Zen Buddhist short stories require some level of meditative contemplation to figure out), I love them because their purpose is to teach a lesson. Also, Zen short stories go beyond just Zen. They’re really just stories about life. So keep in mind I only say Zen stories because they originated from the Zen Buddhist tradition. They speak of truths which everyone can learn from though (as does all of Zen).
