Since 1992, first for re-mastered audios, this series is known as A Bird on the Wing.
Reader of the sutras/questions: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
The student Doko came to the master and said,
"In what state of mind should I seek the truth?".
The master replied, "There is no mind, so you cannot put it in any state, and there is no truth, so you cannot seek it."
Doko said, "If there is no mind and no truth, why do all these students gather before you every day to study?"
The master looked around and said, "I don't see anyone."
The inquirer asked, "Then who are you teaching?"
"I have no tongue, so how can I teach?", replied the master.
Then Doko said sadly, "I cannot follow you; I cannot understand."
The master said, "I don't understand myself."

Question 1
Osho, you just told us you have nothing to teach us, and last night it was a great shock when you said as far as you are concerned your work is done, that you're carrying your body for us. A young Jesus also said, "Wist ye not that I am about my father's business." what is or what was your business?
