The sutra
Once a taoist, happening to pass by Hyakujo's monastery, asked, "Is there anything in the world more marvelous than the forces of nature?"
Hyakujo replied, "There is."
"And what is that?" the taoist inquired.
Hyakujo said, "The power of comprehending those natural forces."
The visitor asked, "Is cosmic vitality the Tao?"
Hyakujo responded, "Cosmic vitality is cosmic vitality. The Tao is the Tao."
The taoist said, "If so, they must be two different things?"
Hyakujo said, "That which knows does not proceed from two different persons."
The exasperated taoist replied, "What is wrong and what is right?"
Hyakujo replied, "Wrong is the mind that attends to externals; right is the mind that brings externals under control."


Question 1
