Albert Low



                When I asked Albert Low of the Montreal Zen Center what the function of Zen was, he replied without hesitation: “Oh, there’s no function of Zen.”
                “So why do people come here?”
                “Because they think there is a function of Zen.”
                “And they discover?”
                “There is no function of Zen. If they work long enough.”
