what is mondomondo mean?

The original meaning of “mondo” is “world” in Italian.

So it has taken the meaning of “huge” “world size” in slang. 

mon·do  (mnd) Slang

adj.    

Enormous; huge: a mondo list of pizza toppings.
adv.    

Extremely; very: a mondo big mistake.

[From mondo (bizarro)very bizarre, from Italian Mondo (Cane)(A Dog’s) World, name of movie with bizarre scenes that was a cult favorite in the 1960s.]

mondo film is a documentary film, sometimes resembling a pseudo-documentary, usually depicting sensational topics, scenes, and situations.

Mondo: Related to the Japanese word mondai, meaning to question, mondo may mean the way of the gate (mon), or to the crest (mon). Each of these connotations fits the purpose of mondo. During mondo the master asks questions quickly, and the student must respond quickly. This is done to prevent the student from thinking, to allow intuition to control. Used notably in the Rinzai school.

Monk: “What does one think of while sitting?”

Master: “One thinks of not-thinking.”

Monk: “How does one think of not-thinking?”

Master: “Without thinking.”

a Zen Mondo
