The sutra
Rinzai became known as the master of the shouts. On one occasion, a monk asked, "What about the cardinal principle of the Buddha-dharma?"
Rinzai shouted -- the monk bowed.
"Do you say that's a good shout?" Rinzai asked.
The monk commented: "The thief in the grass has met complete defeat."
"What's my offense?" Rinzai asked.
The monk replied, "It won't be pardoned a second time."
Rinzai gave a shout.

Question 1
Our Beloved Master, our love for music, poetry, dance, our love for love itself -- doesn't that suggest an urge in us to disappear?
If that is so, why does meditation, the art of disappearing, not come more naturally to us?
