Easy but you would have to be a real cavrone to pull this off.


Walk onto the stage flower in vase.
Put vase on podium
assume meditational posture behind the vase for a minute or two
get up
pick up vase and flower and leave

You could come back and take questions or not depending upon circumstance.
Or if you feel like it provide the name of the sutra perhaps in sanskrit. Or explain briefly the setting and context of the sutra.

Five minutes....the impossible then becomes possible.

Here is a very, very general attempt which is aimed at the general public by a Zen priest who does it in 3:56.
