The sutra
When Ganto took leave of Tokusan, Tokusan said, "Where are you going?"
Ganto said, "For now I am taking leave of you, master, and going down the mountain."
Tokusan said, "After that, then what?"
Ganto said, "I won't forget you, master."
"By virtue of what do you say this?" inquired Tokusan.
Ganto said, "Haven't you heard that when a monk's knowledge is equal to his teacher's he has less than half his teacher's virtue; when his knowledge surpasses the teacher's only then is he qualified for the transmission?"
Tokusan said, "So it is, so it is. Guard it well on your own."

Question 1
Beloved Osho, the unsurpassable man, would you agree that your disciples will have only proved themselves when they surpass you? Or do we need only to surpass ourselves?
