The sutras
Joshu stayed with Nansen for thirty years. After his enlightenment he lived for thirty years more in the Kuan-yin temple. Once, he said:
"Smoke from the chimneys around me I see in vain, no bun or rice cake since last year have I eaten. Now thoughts of them make my mouth water.
Not mindful of Buddhism, I often sigh deep sighs. None of the people of one hundred houses are good: every visitor only asks me for a cup of tea. If not given enough, he angrily leaves me."
At another time Joshu was asked: "A hair's breadth of difference -- and what happens?"
The master answered, "Heaven and earth are far away."
The monk asked, "And when there is not a hair's breadth of difference?"
"Heaven and earth are far away," Joshu replied.

Question 1
Beloved Osho, has one only received a hit if it hurts?
