Be Still And Know
by Osho
Description
About the book

In this very special series of questions and answers Osho talks on the death and enlightenment of his own father which occurred at this time. He also shines his unique light on subjects as diverse as science and meditation personality and essence homosexuality witnessing and silence.

He left the world in utter silence in joy in peace. He left the world like a lotus flower it was worth celebrating and these are the occasions for you to learn how to live and how to die. Each death should be a celebration but it can be a celebration only if it leads you to higher planes of existence.

My effort here is to help you all to live like buddhas and die like buddhas the death of a Buddha is both is not a death because life is eternal life does not being with birth and does not end with death. Millions of times you have been born and died they are all small episodes in the eternal pilgrimage but because you are unconscious you cannot see that which is beyond birth and death.

Osho is in a category all of his own and as he states. I am nobody I don’t belong to any nation I don’t belong to any political party. I am simply an individual the way existence created me. I have kept myself absolutely uninfluenced by any idiotic ideology religious political social financial and the miracle is that because I am not burdened with all these glasses on my eyes and curtains before me I can see clearly.

About the Author

Osho defies categorization, reflecting everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. His books are not written but are transcribed from recordings of extemporaneous talks given over a period of thirty-five years. Osho has been described by The Sunday Times In London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day n India as one of the ten people along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha who have changed the destiny of India.

Osho has a stated aim of helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being, characterized as “Zorba the Buddha” one whose feet are firmly on the ground, yet whose hands can touch the stars. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho’s talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology.

He is synonymous with a revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation and an approach to meditation which specifically addresses the accelerated pace of contemporary life. The unique OSHO Active Meditations are designed to allow the release of accumulated stress in the body and mind so that it is easier to be still and experience the thought-free state of meditation.

Preface

Relaxation is the key to your own innermost being. And relaxation consists of stillness, consists of peace; and certainly this silliness, this peace, passeth understanding. You can know it, you can be it, but you cannot explain it. You cannot theorize about it; it remains the most mysterious experience.

The Bible is right. If you are still, you will for the first time know who you are your being and your being is divine. You are parts of a godliness that surrounds everything.

Just these small moments of relaxation, slowly, slowly will make you aware that they need not be moments; they can become your whole lifestyle. All twenty-four hours you can be silent and peaceful, doing everything in life that is necessary still it will not be disturbing your peace or your silence; it will not distract you from your being.

That is one of the most significant points that I want to insist upon, because in the past what has happened people who became silent and still became afraid of the world. It was a natural reaction. They thought that now how can they be just a shopkeeper, a clerk, a stationmaster, a father, a teacher? With all these responsibilities their silence will be lost, their peace will be disturbed, so all the old religions of the world became anti-life: “Renounce the world. Escape to the mountains, to the caves, where you can protect your treasure of peace and silence.” But it was a fallacy.

The real peace, the real silence, needs to be tested here in the world, in the marketplace. If it is disturbed that simply shows it was very superficial you have to go deeper into it. And the marketplace is helpful to show you.

Deep in the mountains there is no way to know whether your silence is deep or just superficial. You can remain silent for your whole life and die and the silence will be just skin-deep, because there is nothing to disturb it so you cannot see how deep it is.

I want the religious person to be in the world, not of the world, but in the world, because the marketplace is the place where you are tested every moment. And you should be grateful to the marketplace because it continuously makes you aware of where you are. The day nothing disturbs you, nothing makes any difference to your silence and this can be realized only in the marketplace, not in the Himalayas.

In the Himalayas there is every possibility of fallacy because the silence of the Himalayas will not disturb your silence. The silence of the Himalayas will give you a false notion as if it is your silence. And you have only a thin layer, a poor layer.

I am against renouncing the world. I am absolutely for the world.

The world is a great school.

Experiment, meditate, and be constantly in touch with things which disturb. One day nothing will be disturbing, and that will he the day of great rejoicing.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
