The sutras
Nansen once went into the garden and, seeing a monk there, threw a piece of broken tile at him and hit him. When the monk turned his head, Nansen lifted up one leg. The monk made no response. Nansen returned to the temple and the monk followed him and asked to be taught, saying "The master just threw a piece of tile at me and hit me. Did he not do this as a means of arousing me?"
Nansen said, "How about raising the leg?"
The monk was silent.
On another occasion, a monk came and stood before Nansen with folded hands. Nansen said, "A great layman!"
The monk clasped his hands.
Nansen said, "a great monk!"

Question 1
Beloved Osho, the poems or haikus that you talk about each evening sound so contemporary -- as though they were written about you and your disciples. Yet they have come to us from centuries earlier.
Is that an attribute of the truth, that it resonates with all people everywhere, in any age, who are seeking it?
