Yeah, I think you're right dude. Dudeism and Zen Dudeism are pretty much the same thing!
You know, driving around, bowling and the occasional flashbacks.

Sometimes I think we are the pothead version of Zen. Like I totally dig the philosophy of Zen, but I find it's practice a bit exhausting, it feels as though it's trying just a little too hard to not try.

Hey, I know what you mean!
I find most religions; even Buddhism and Zen Buddhism much like machines which are designed to churn out more of themselves. But once you become part of the machine you lose you perspective. From the inside you do not know you are just part of the machine.

Also, dudes, let's not forget, let's not forget that there are quite a few Zen-stories of guys who became enlightened the moment they stopped trying to become enlightened.

And of those who spend years sitting and meditating and not getting very far.

I bowl when I bowl,

I drink Caucasians when I drink Caucasians,

I drive when I drive,

that is Zen.

Hi DB,
great picture!
where is it from? I mean the one with the Buddha-like sitting Dude and Walter. It's not in the movie, is it? Have I missed out a director's cut or something?

That is from a scene in the movie that was cut. The dude and Walter are waiting outside to see the undertaker taking care of Donny's ashes (the coffee can scene) as I recall the description stated. Was never used in the movie, but I think it was used in one trailer. Have to check that out though.

Yeah, it looked pretty zen like, brother_erwin.  ;D

Thanks meekon5, that's about as good a description as I have read anywhere.
Fabulous stuff! ;D
