The sutras
A monk asked Nansen, "From patriarch to patriarch there is a transmission. What is it that they wish to transmit to one another?"
Nansen said, "One, two, three, four, five."
The monk asked, "What is that which was possessed by the ancients?"
The master said, "When it can be possessed, I will tell you."
The monk said dubiously, "Master, why should you lie?"
The master replied, "I do not lie. Eno lied."
On another occasion a monk said to Nansen, "there is a jewel in the sky; how can we get hold of it?"
Nansen said, "Cut down the bamboos and make a ladder; put it in the sky and get hold of it!"
The monk said, "How can the ladder be put up in the sky?"
Nansen said, "How can you doubt your getting hold of the jewel?"

Question 1
Beloved Osho, you have often said you will have no successors. But won't all those who love you be your successors in that we carry you in our blood and bones and so you are part of us forever?
