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
Nansen found two groups of monks squabbling over the ownership of a cat.
Nansen went to the kitchen and brought back a chopper. He picked up the cat and said to the monks, "If any of you can say a good word, you can save the cat."
Not a word was said, so Nansen cut the cat in two and gave half to each group.
When Joshu returned that evening, Nansen told him what had happened. Joshu said nothing. He just put his sandals on his head and walked out.
Nansen said, "If you had been there, you could have saved the cat."

Question 1
Beloved Osho, in place of the ten commandments, with which I was brought up, I have given myself a new set of rules -- be alert, be patient, be spontaneous, accept myself.
