The sutras
Once, Hakugan said to Yakusan, who was reading a scripture, "You should stop fooling people."
As he rolled up the text, Yakusan asked, "What time of day is it?"
Hakugan replied, "Just noon."
Yakusan then said, "There is still this pattern."
Hakugan responded: "I don't even have nothing," to which Yakusan said, "you are too brilliant."
Hakugan commented, "I am just thus. What about you?"
Yakusan said, "I limp along, ungainly in a hundred ways, clumsy in a thousand; still I go on this way."
On another occasion, Yakusan asked a monk, "Where have you come from?"
"From the southern lake," replied the monk.
"Has the lake overflowed its banks?" asked Yakusan.
"Not yet," answered the monk.
Then Yakusan said, "So much rain and the lake not yet full?"
But the monk was silent.


Question 1
Beloved Osho, "So much rain and the lake is not yet full."
What do we do that we continuously leak, and so lose all that we are given?
