The sutra
Sansho, a disciple of Rinzai, once said to Seppo, "The golden carp is out of the net! Tell me, what will it feed on?"
Seppo said, "When you have got out of the net, I will tell you."
Sansho said, "The renowned teacher of fifteen hundred monks cannot find even one word to say about this topic."
Seppo said, "I am the chief abbot and have much to attend to."
On another occasion, some time later, Sansho said to a monk, "Where have you just come from?"
The monk said, "Kwatz!"
Sansho said, "Kwatz!"
The monk again said, "Kwatz!"
Sansho said, "Kwatz!"
The monk said, "If you strike me blindly, I shall say 'kwatz!'"
Sansho picked up his staff, and the monk put himself in readiness to receive a hit. Sansho said, "When you go down a slope, there's no pleasure unless you run down it," at which he struck the monk.
The monk said, "You robber!" and went off.
Another monk present at the scene asked, "The monk just now -- how can he enter?"
Sansho commented, "That chap had been to see the former teacher."

Question 1
Our Beloved Master, do we really have to come back from the let-go? Last night, especially, it felt as if you could have talked us into enlightenment!
