    It is not necessary for you to do koan practice. After chanting or orientation you could just do meditation practice. But here is one of the koans in our school -
    Jo Ju’s Dog
    A monk once asked Jo Ju, “Does a dog have Buddha-nature?”
Jo Ju answered, “Mu!” (No)
    1. Buddha said everything has Buddha-nature. Jo Ju said a dog has no Buddha-nature. Which one is correct?
    2. Jo Ju said, “Mu!” What does this mean?
    3. I ask you, does a dog have Buddha-nature?
    Commentary: Silence is better than holiness, so opening your mouth is a big mistake. But if you use this mistake to save all beings, this is Zen.
