The sutras
Once Joshu was asked, "What is the special teaching of your school?"
Joshu's response was, "Though the folding screen is broken, the frame is still there."
At another time, the same question was asked of Joshu, and he replied, "Ask in a loud voice -- I'm hard of hearing."
When the monk had repeated the question in a loud voice, Joshu said, "You ask me my special teaching -- I know your special teaching."
Once, Joshu was asked to go to a Korean temple to a meeting. When he reached the gate, he asked, "What temple is this?"
Someone answered: "A Korean one."
Joshu said, "You and I are oceans away."
On another occasion, a monk asked, "When a beggar comes, what shall we give him?"
Joshu answered, "He is lacking in nothing."

Question 1
Beloved Osho, what is the difference between a puzzle and a mystery?
