One hand clapping: Hakuin Ekaku

Two hands clap and there is a sound. What is the sound of one hand?
>Hakuin Ekaku

I’m off to Bali tomorrow for a two-week break seeking pollution detoxification, plenty of solar electromagnetic radiation,
psilocybin mushrooms, locally brewed Stormbrewing beer, and even - if I’m very lucky - a mola-mola or two at Lembongan Island.

And as for the answer to that famous Zen kōan - well you could spend the next three and a half years in a Buddhist temple - like
this one in Banjar, North Bali (complete with a miniature scale Borobodur temple!) – trying to figure it out.

Or, alternatively, you could just forgo the enlightenment and slap the poor blighter who asked you across the face!

Sma-ck!!!!!!!!!
