The Sweetest Strawberry - a Zen Koan

The Sweetest Strawberry
- a traditional Zen Koan

A man was chased by a tiger. Coming to a cliff, he grabbed the root of a vine and hung over the edge. The tiger looked at him from above.
The man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting.
Two mice began to gnaw at the vine.
The man saw a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. How sweet it tasted!


Moral: Life is short. Savor the sweetness of each moment.
