As instructed, Simon follows his roshi to the meditation hall. When they reach the door of the zendo, the master steps inside quickly, turns around, and slams the door in his student's face. At that moment, Simon experiences awakening.
The fifth part of the suite is thus entitled « Awakening » and is intended as an instrumental illustration of the process Simon goes through when the door is shut in his face.
