The sutra
On one occasion, Isan, Goho and Ungan, were all standing together in attendance on Hyakujo.
Hyakujo said to Isan, "With your mouth and lips closed, how would you say it?"
Isan said, "I would ask you to say it."
Hyakujo said, "I could say it, but if I did so, I fear I should have no successors."
Hyakujo turned to Goho. "With your mouth and lips closed, how would you say it?" he asked his second disciple.
Goho said, "Osho! You should shut up!"
Hyakujo said, "In the distant land where no one stirs, I shall shade my eyes with my hand and watch for you."
Then Hyakujo asked Ungan, "With your mouth and lips closed, how would you say it?"
Ungan said, "Osho, do you have them or not?"
Hyakujo said, "My successors will be missing."

Question 1
Beloved Osho, are there any occasions when it is necessary for disciples to protect their master from himself?
