AbstractZen Buddhism frequently involves a type of playful interaction that is intended to lead to enlightenment. The play of taking on roles, whether of Zen teacher or student,parent or friend,is no different than the child's game of playing house. Many Zen stories speak of the poverty of Buddha nature,its inherent emptiness or lack of significance. Such teachings point to a way of taking things so that nothing impedes a direct response to whatever circumstances present themselves.
