The sutra
Emperor Shukuso asked Chu Kokushi, "What is the ten-bodied herdsman?"
Kokushi replied, "Go and trample on Vairocana's head!"
The emperor said, "I cannot follow you."
Kokushi said, "Don't take the self for the pure dharma body."
A monk once asked Kokushi, "What is the true body of the dharmakaya Buddha?"
"Fetch me the water bottle," responded Kokushi.
When the monk brought it to him, Kokushi said, "Put it back where it was." The monk, having done what he was asked to do, repeated his former question.
Kokushi said, "Alas! The old buddha has long gone!"

Question 1
Our Beloved Master, is the concept of God simply man's inner pathology projected -- and nothing more?
Question 2
Our Beloved Master, it appears that, through history, as man has moved into the concept of "god," he has simultaneously become more destructive -- not just towards the "non-believers" but towards his environment, towards himself.
Is there a connection?
