It is a Japanese philosophy, that is based of the teachings of the Buddha. It makes sense, now that I think about it, that sarcasm and Zen would go perfectly together.
It doesn’t contradict itself in execution or meaning. To be sarcastic you have to understand the subject matter thoroughly enough express different aspects of it.
Zen is about expressing multiple sides of one concept simultaneously as well. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some totally bogus Zen teachings that will, hopefully, give you a little chuckle! No insult intended to the Zen at all. I hope this doesn’t offend anyone; if so, it’s not my intention.
