It’s a hammer used to shatter fixed thinking, a Rubik’s Cube of words for the mind to unravel. Koans are not merely black and white riddles that our minds figure out suddenly and proclaim, Aha! I’ve got the answer!

They wait for you to open enough to allow the space necessary for them to enter into your depths-the inner regions beyond knowing.

The album made some departures from the band's previous sounds, with Fireworks magazine noting that "Divinity and Eternal Snow have bursts of growly vocals on the heavier parts", but in spite of this, PROG Magazine still deemed there to be an "overwhelming sense of cohesion on this record".

Zen Koan PERFECT WAY KONGO ZEN INDIA ZEN HISTORY KONGO ZEN INDIA Zen came into being through the merging of the Hindu-Buddhist understanding, that the essential reality of life can be discovered through non-attachment to any of its particular forms.
