The sutra
On one occasion, Yun Kuang asked Hyakujo, "Master, do you know where you will be reborn?"
Hyakujo replied, "We have not died yet, so what is the use of discussing our rebirths? That which knows birth is the unborn. We cannot stray from birth to speak of the unborn. The patriarch once said, 'that which undergoes birth is really unborn.'"
Yun Kuang asked, "Does this apply even to those who have yet to perceive their own nature?"
Hyakujo said, "Your not having perceived your own nature does not imply that you lack that nature. Why so? Because perception itself is that nature... That which can produce the myriad phenomena of the universe is called the dharma nature, otherwise known as the dharmakaya.
The patriarch, Asvagosha, declared: 'In speaking of phenomena, we really refer to the minds of sentient beings, for, when mental processes occur, all sorts of phenomena take birth in accordance with them. When mental processes do not occur, phenomena have nothing in which to arise -- there are not even names for them.'"

Question 1
Beloved Osho, is there just one reality, and can it be perceived only by no-mind?
