Though this site is primarily about Hinduism, some articles will have to do with other Eastern Religions and practices. I will write occassionaly about Buddhism, Taoism, and practices like yoga, feng-shui, meditation etc. Sometimes I just cannot resist the temptation to write about little gems I come across while browsing. So please don’t blame me!

Today is one such day. I came across a cool service that emails you one Zen story(koan) a day. The koans are from the 101 Zen Stories site.

A little bit of background, a koan is a story, puzzle, or dialogue that contains wisdom that can be gleaned by intuition. Kaons may not always make logical or rational sense, but the intent os to appeal to your intuition and make you look within for answers.

I hope the email service lets you start your day in the right frame of mind. Resist the temptation to read all 101 stories together – don’t visit the website!
