- The sutras
- Once, Kyozan's master asked him, "The nirvana sutra has about forty chapters of the Buddha's teaching. How many of these are devil teachings?"
- "All of them," replied Kyozan.
- The master commented: "From now on, nobody will be able to do what he likes with you."
- Then Kyozan asked: "From now on, what should be my mode of life?"
- His master responded, "I admire your just eye; I am not concerned about the practical side of the matter."
- Once Kyozan was asked by a monk, "Can you explain the law body?"
- "I can't," said Kyozan, "but there is one who can."
- The monk then said, "Where is the one who can explain it?"
- By way of response, Kyozan pulled forward the pillow.
- Kyozan's master, on hearing of this interchange, said, "Kyozan is using the blade of the sword."
- Question 1
- Our Beloved Master, it seems to me that formal religions have used the sense of the mysterious negatively -- to delude and baffle people. On the other hand, unless science has a sense of the mysterious, it seems that it will always be destructive.
- Is this so?
