Sorry?...........I'm trying to find the relevance of 'not learning anything at the monastery'.
"Living in the world yet not forming attachments to the dust of the world is the way of a true Zen student."
- Zengetsu, a Chinese Zen master of the T'ang dynasty
I think Morningstar just was pointing out the irony of a follower of a philosophy that discourages attachment to material possessions suing someone for stealing said possessions.
Just because he's ordained as a Buddhist, he should let people steal from him?
If he's a Zen buddhist then I'd say yes. This koan
is quite an interesting example.
Of course, if I were in Leonard Cohen's position and not a Zen master, I'd sue for every penny I could get back; hence why I'm not a Zen master.
