Zen Story for January 2021 Fool Moon in Leo

The Zen teacher’s dog loved his evening romp with his master. The dog would bound ahead to fetch a stick, then run back, wag his tail, and wait for the next game. On this particular evening, the teacher invited one of his brightest students to join him – a boy so intelligent that he became troubled by the contradictions in Buddhist doctrine.

„You must understand“, said the teacher, „that words are only guideposts. Never let the words or symbols get in the way of truth. Here, I’ll show you“.

With that the teacher called his happy dog.

„Fetch me the moon“, he said to his dog and pointed to the full moon.

„Where is my dog looking? “ asked the teacher of the bright pupil.

„He’s looking at your finger“.

„Exactly! Don’t be like my dog. Don’t confuse the pointing finger with the thing that is being pointed at. All our Buddhist words are only guideposts. Every man fights his way through other men’s words to find his own truth“.

Full Moon Calendar

The January Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Wolf Moon, because this was the time of year when hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps. This is the name attested in Farmers’ Almanac. However, in Beard’s 1918 book, this was the name given to the December Full Moon. Other names for this full moon were Old Moon, Ice Moon, the Moon After Yule, Difficulty Moon and Black Smoke Moon.
