The sutra
A monk asked, "Are words and speech also mind?"
Hyakujo replied, "Words and speech are concurrent causes; they are not mind."
The monk continued, "What is this mind which lies beyond words and speech?"
"There is no mind beyond words and speech," responded Hyakujo.
The monk said, "If there is no mind beyond words and speech, what is that mind in reality?"
Hyakujo said, "Mind is without form and characteristics. It is neither beyond nor not beyond words and speech. It is forever clear and still, and can perform its function freely and without hindrance. The patriarch said, 'It is only when the mind is seen to be unreal that the dharma of all minds can be truly understood.'"

Question 1
Beloved Osho, you won't break our hearts and return to your room, never to venture out again, will you?
It is selfish of me, but I continue hoping that we can keep you with us -- that Sardarji will keep laughing and Avirbhava will keep screaming; that the sutras will be juicy enough, and that the questions make it clear that we very much still need you here with us.
