Buban’s Escape from Forms and Sounds

When a monk asked Master Buban, “How can I escape from forms and sounds?” Buban said to his students, “If you understand this monk’s question, you can escape from forms and sounds easily.”

Student: “How should I understand the monk’s question?”

Master: “I understand your question.”

Commentary:

There cannot be questions and answers when there are no forms and sounds.
