Riddles

Riddles relate to the study of the root nature of reality, existence, and knowledge. There are many questions in life for which there are no set answers or such diverging opinions on answers that just raise more questions. 

 

My inspiration came from unravelling Chinese riddles. When Confucius's disciples asked him what he meant by the word  humanity his answer was "loving others".

 

 "Is not living what one has learned at all times the source of great pleasure?" he asked, "Is not the greatest joy receiving a friend who has travelled from afar?"
