The sutras
Edited excerpt: 9min 16sec, a part of answer to the sutra) **
Nansen said to the assembled monks, "Old master O ('O' was Nansen's own lay name) is going to sell himself. Will anyone buy him?"
A monk came out and said, "I will!"
Nansen said, "Don't make me dear; don't make me cheap. How will you buy me?"
The monk was silent.
On another occasion Nansen was asked by a monk, "Where will the master be gone in a hundred years' time?"
Nansen said, "I'll be a water-colored ox."
The monk said, "May I follow you or not?"
Nansen said, "Well, if you do, bring a mouthful of grass with you!"

Question 1
Beloved Osho, we hear you say each night, "Go inside -- don't be afraid. You will meet no one else but yourself."
Why the fear of meeting our self?
