This is another Zen koan, but this one's my favorite, largely because I kind of know the answer. Of course, I don't really know the answer, because I personally did not mediatate on it for days and days until the answer came to me; and that's the only way to really get the answer to these things. They're designed to be things you can't answer with your rational mind, but rather things that you can only come to understand the answer to.

Anyway, the question is this: Who is the Great One who makes the grass green?

Technically, to understand this, you must sit in the grass until you get it. I personally would suggest that you use the koan as an excuse to go sit in the grass, especially if it's a nice day out. However, if you feel like cheating, follow this link to get to the answer. As always, have fun...
