  • Made Rinzai Zen approachable

    I picked up a copy of The Gateless Gate on a whim a few years ago and had absolutely no clue what I was reading or where to even start. After several months of searching, Knot Zen has been hands down the best source I’ve found for discussing koans in a fun and non-judgmental format. Recommend to everyone I know with any interest in Zen.

  • Informative and understandable

    Knot Zen podcast members dissect each case so that listeners are able to understand the case at their own level. Listeners are educated, not talked down to. The dialogue between the cast is elevated enough to include more advanced Zen students as well.

  • A Case Study in the Dunning-Kruger Effect

    A bunch of people who have no idea what they’re talking about thinking that they know what they’re talking about.

  • Highly recommended

    This is an informative, informal and insightful podcast that explores various readings of the ever enigmatic koan (cases) of the Zen Masters. Not only do these guys provide a welcome route in to realising what zen is all about, but their collective knowledge of other areas such as physics and religion provides the listener with much to chew on. You won’t find a better zen podcast!
