Student Q: Docho Roshi, what is the fundamental cause of the universe? 

SR: Cause of youness?

Student Q: Universe.

SR: Hmm?

Student Q: Universe.

SR: Universe. Ah, we do not discuss about it because there is no beginning or no end for the universe.

Student Q: Thank you very much.

DC Comment: What he means here is not that the particular physical universe has no beginning or end, but that there will always be samsara, form of some sort.
