‘A monk asked Nansen, “Is there any dharma that has not been preached to the people?’
Nansen answered, “There is.”
“What is the truth that has not been taught?”
Nansen said, “It is not mind; it is not Buddha; it is not things.”
Mumon’s comment: “At this question, Nansen used up all his personal treasure immediately and became quite debilitated”‘ (Case 27).
Good for Nansen. But what was he actually saying? Did he reveal any secrets really?
