Question 1
Beloved Osho, the Zen master Hotei used to travel around with a bag on his shoulder, giving out sweets to children and playing with them. If a Zen devotee were to meet him on the road, Hotei would simply bow down to him and say, "Give a penny!" and if he were asked to go to a temple to give a discourse, again Hotei would say the same thing: "Give a penny!"
Once he was playing with some children, and another Zen monk met him and asked, "What is the meaning of Zen?" In silent answer, Hotei put his bag on the ground. The monk then asked him, "What is the achievement of Zen?", at which the smiling Buddha picked his bag up again, put it on his shoulder, and set off.
The other monk also later became a famous Zen master. Can you please explain what their messages were?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, with meditation sensitivity increases, making life more difficult because one's reactions are so sharp and intense, and at every step it feels as though one's very life is at stake. How to attain the golden mean, the balance point, in this situation?
