A monk visited Tai-Shan, who shut the door in his face. The monk knocked on the door and Tai-Shan asked: “Who is it?”

The monk answered, “The lion’s cub.”

Then Tai-Shan opened the door and jumped onto the monk’s neck shouting “Animal! Where will you go now?”

The monk did not reply.

The term “lion’s cub” is used by Zen Buddhists to describe a disciple who is capable of understanding Zen truth. When the Masters praise a disciple’s comprehension, or they wish to test him, this term is usually employed.

In this case, the monk presumptuously names himself the lion’s cub, but when Tai-Shan tests him, treating him like a real lion’s cub as he clambered onto his neck and asked an esoteric question: The monk did not know how to answer.

This is evidence that the monk lacked the authentic understanding which he claimed to possess.

Such a monk was in fact a man whose Consciousness was asleep; he was sincere but mistaken, a mythomaniac. - Samael Aun Weor

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

To be a Lion of Judah is to be a cub of LEO, the constellation of the Sun, the Solar Logos - the Cosmic Christ.

Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? - Genesis 49: 9

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

Is this something that must be achieved through initiation?

No other trees grow in the forest of sandalwood;
For countless ages only lions have lived there,
Roaming freely in the silent, dark grove.
No birds and no other animals enter the forest,
Only the lion cubs follow the older beasts.
Even the three year old cub roars loudly.
How can a yelping fox imitate the kind of Dhamma?
Even though hundreds of monsters open
Their mouths, it will be in vain.
