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?
