Very sharp! I will thank you, my Green Knight, with two:
-- “It is said that all voices are the voices of the Buddha. Is it true or not, master Tosu?”, asked the monk.
-- “It is true”, related Tosu.
-- “Master don’t fart around so loudly”, answered the monk and Tosu hit him on the spot.
-- “It is said that rough words and gentle phrases return to the first principle. Is it true or not, master Tosu?”, went on the monk.
-- “It is true”, said Tosu.
-- “May I call you, Master, a donkey?”
Tosu hit him again
...And the flip side:
-- “The phenomenal body perishes. What is the Dharma-body that remains solid, master Dairyu?”, asked the monk.
-- “The autumn foliage of the mountains spreads like brocade; the water in the valley remains blue as indigo”, replied Dairyu
