Yogic thought for the day

Kyougen Osho said: "It is like a man up in a tree hanging from a branch with his mouth, his hands grasp no bough, his feet rest on no branch. Someone appears under the tree and asks him, "What is the meaning of Bodhidharma's coming from the West? " If he does not answer he fails to respond to the question, if he does answer he will lose his life. What would you do in such a situation?"

That is a Koan... a Zen puzzle.

For me, it means you cannot talk of That, in any case:) It would be as foolish to talk of That... How many gurus nowadays, talking talking talking.....
