quote
There is an old saying, Osaka no kui-daore— literally, Osaka people want good food even if they have to go broke for it. But we can take it to mean simply that Osaka people expect their food to be very tasty. One popular Osaka treat is kushi-age.

To make kushi-age, take small pieces of meat and vegetables, place them on a thin wooden skewer, coat them in a wheat flour batter, sprinkle on breadcrumbs, then drop them in a deep fryer. A ready-to-eat skewer is quite cheap (about 100 yen) in just about any shop or restaurant. Kushi-age are considered a down-to-earth, working-class snack, best eaten just out of the fryer at a counter, perhaps with a beer in hand.

You are likely to see outlets selling them in busy parts of Osaka, especially in the Shin Sekai (“New World”) district of Naniwa Ward. The district’s most impressive feature is the Tsutenkaku Tower, Osaka’s answer to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Near the tower is a jumble of eating and drinking establishments, mixed in with small stores.

The district may not be large, but it has an impressive number of shops serving kushi-age, each one trying to outdo the next. One of them, Daruma, claims to have started the craze— it dates from 1929.

It was the first shop to serve kushi-katsu, skewered pieces of beef.
Daruma has a counter but no tables, and it is so small that it can only serve seven or eight customers at a time. The unwritten rule here is to eat, pay and run, so you almost never have to wait long, in spite of the popularity of the place. Today the ingredients are quite varied—not just beef, but pork and chicken too, plus seafood such as squid and octopus, and vegetables including onion, lotus root, asparagus and mini tomatoes. Altogether, there are more than 30 choices in the display case to tempt you.

Daruma’s kushi-age are cheap and simple to make, and they are fried to perfection, too. The batter has different seasonings, the breadcrumbs are made so fine they look like sand, and the recipes are a trade secret. Some kushi-age are deep-fried with lots of batter, others have just a thin coating, others have none at all—it depends on the ingredients you choose. This too shows Daruma’s attention to the culinary experience.

When your piping hot order arrives, dunk each piece into the special sauce in the metal container. The fragrant crispy batter melts in the mouth, the tasty food releases its flavors, and the seasoned sauce adds to the magic.

Daruma Restaurant in Durban, South Africa



A leader in authentic Japanese cuisine in South Africa Daruma Restaurant opened its Johannesburg establishment 18 years ago while its Durban branch commenced operation 8 years ago.

An old Japanese saying goes
"If you have the pleasant experience of eating something that you have not tasted before, your life will be lengthened by 75 days!"
The staff at Daruma believe that after discovering the many pleasures of their menu, your life will be prolonged.

A koan is a riddle of sorts, put to a student of Zen by his master.
There are many ways to tackle these problems, so I will show you some stories about the use of KATSU, also written KWATS 喝, as a means to help wake up the sleeping mind.



For the practical study of Zen, you must pass the barriers set up by the masters of Zen. The attainment of this mysterious illumination means cutting off the workings of the ordinary mind completely. If you have not done this and passed the barrier, you are a phantom among the undergrowth and weeds. Now what is this barrier? It is simply "Mu", the Barrier of the Gate of Zen and this is why it is called "The Gateless Barrier of the Zen Sect."


The following illustration shows the Chinese character MU 無, written with many small MU to make one big MU. MU is maybe the most wellknown koan.
無と言う考案は多分一番よく知られている考案です。無と言う小さい漢字を使いながら、無と言う大きな無を書きました。

Master Mumon 無門禅師
Mumon was born in 1183, towards the end of the Sung Dynasty, 960-1279. He went to see Getsurin, the seventh successor of Yogi, at Manjuji Temple. Getsurin, who was famous for his severity, gave him the koan of Mu to study. After six years, Mumon had still not solved his problem.....(text cut)
The next day, when Mumon went to his interview with Getsurin, he wanted to tell him about his vision, but Getsurin asked him, "Where did you see the god? Where did you see the Devil?" Mumon said "Kwatz!" Getsurin said "Kwatz!" and they kwatzed each other, ad infinitum, more or less.....


Mind is Buddha
This is a famous story about a KATSU that even shocked the great warlord Oda Nobunaga.

"Mind is Buddha" is the phrase for one who wants medicine while he has no disease. "No Mind, No Buddha" is given to those who have been cured of disease but still cling to medicine. A monk asked Baso, "Why do you teach that Mind is Buddha?" Baso replied, "To stop a baby's crying." The monk asked, " What is it like when the baby stops crying?" Baso answered, "No Mind, no Buddha."

In connection with "Mind is Buddha,"there is an interesting story in Nanbanji Kohai-ki (History of Nanbanji):

In the 16th century, a great religious debate was held at Nanbanji between Buddhists and a Portugese Catholic Father who was much favored by Oda Nobunaga, an influential feudal lord of that time. The Portugese Priest was a man of wide erudition and was familiar with the Buddhist Sutras. Representatives of various Buddhist schools were all debated down by his eloquence. Finally Zen Master In of Nanzenji in Kyoto was selected as the last debater. The Portugese Priest asked, "What is Buddha?" "Mind is Buddha" answered Master In. The Portugese Father now unsheathed a dagger, thrust it at Master In's chest, and demanded, "What is 'Mind is Buddha'?" Master In, not perturbed in the least, shouted: "KWATZ!"

The Portugese Priest fell into a swoon in spite of himself and the audience including Lord Nobunaga, all paled.

KATSU and therapeutic hitting by Rinzai Zenji
The master would not hesitate to strike the disciple physically to resolve the koan. Such resolution once had the monk slapping the master, Obaku, and yelling: "There is not, after all, much in the Buddhism of Obaku." Rinzai explains this idea of 'therapeutic hitting': "Many students are not free from the entanglement of objective things. I treat them right at the spot. If their trouble is due to grasping hands, I strike them there. If their trouble comes from their mouths, it is there I strike." Rinzai was also famous for shouting Katsu!, a nonsensical word, as an answer to koans.
http://www.lifepositive.com/Mind/arts/new-age-fiction/koan.asp


A Modern MU interpretation
The correct answer to the classic trick question "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?". Assuming that you have no wife or you have never beaten your wife, the answer "yes" is wrong because it implies that you used to beat your wife and then stopped, but "no" is worse because it suggests that you have one and are still beating her. According to various Discordians and Douglas Hofstadter the correct answer is usually "MU", a Japanese word alleged to mean "Your question cannot be answered because it depends on incorrect assumptions".

Master Gempo and the Silent Kwats
On this HP you can meet the wonderful Master Gempo and his way to live KATSU.
Please take the time and read the full article about Gempo Roshi. I am sure you will find something new and refreshing for your daily zazen practise.
"I often read from the Rinzai Roku and many of you may think, "What is the significance of all those Kwatz?" A Kwatz is not necessarily a shout. There are silent Kwatz, smiling Kwatz, drinking Kwatz. Gempo Roshi was a master of all these. "
... www.daibosatsu.org


To Kwats or not to Kwats!
A master demanded of his disciple:"Show me the Ultimate!"
"KWATZ!" responded the disciple.
The master shook his head.
"KWATZ!!!" the disciple tried again.
The master replied,
"Even if you Kwatz! for countless eons, you still won't get IT!"

The sound of KATSU can be written with other Chinese characters too. Here is one more KATSU 勝, meaning to WIN, which we have found on the belly of Daruma dolls too. This store sells merchandise to Win.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


When Daruma san is in the KATSU mode, as we might put it in modern speach, he stretches out his right arm, fist clenched holding his rosary, which is falling back on the arm with the force of the movement. The beard sometimes too seems to be standing on edge and the facial expression is full attention.

A large and very imposing Japanese lacquered hardwood carving of the seated Daruma with his clenched fist outstretched to repel demons. The body and head are carved as one, the outstretched arm is carved separately and attached to the main carving. The surface of the piece is covered with a lacquer finish. The effect is extremely strong, lively, and full of character.




There is also a clay bell with a KATSU Daruma with outstretched fist.
