Osho's Zen Koan

A man once asked Osho for a fresh Zen Koan as he had the answers at hand from the scriptures for the other Koans.

Osho related a conversation between him and another follower.

Once a German sannyasi who was a man of heart was sobbing with joy.

Osho asked him, “How long are you going to stay?"

The Sannyasi replied, “Forever Osho!"

Osho said to him, “When you come next time, stay a little longer!"

Osho told the man who asked for a Koan, “Now this is a Koan, for which you will not find the answers . Even I do not know the answer!"
