Description
About The Book

In these delightful and playful talks, available for the first time in one volume, Osho introduces the mystery, the wonder, and the emptiness that in Zen. He uses the poetry of one of the most outrageous Zen masters, lkkyu, to show the ways and methods a Zen master uses to permanently transform, rather than simply inform.

Osho and lkkyu’s whole message is about how to experience the essence of emptiness: that blissful state of no-mind where all old conditionings are gone and man is free just to be himself. As Osho speaks of lkkyu, and answers people’s questions, he is also speaking of himself. As he speaks of whom lkkyu is, he reveals more about himself.

This book can change the life of anyone who reads it with an open mind. Osho words are a fire that burns away old enslaving concepts, setting man free from the fears that have constricted his life. He gives the reader a fresh, new understanding of himself, and shows him the way to light his own path.

Osho 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 religion, 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, and 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.”

“These words of lkkyu describe the Buddhist approach profoundly. Listen to lkkyu’s song. Accept this emptiness and the fear of death will disappear like a month. When you find the flame of love burning bright-be a month!”

 

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 Time in London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day in India as one of the ten people-along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha- who have change the destiny 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 though free state of meditation.

 

Preface

Don’t make the search for truth a serious phenomenon. Take it easy, and remember: easy is right. If strong winds take you hither and thither, don’t resist; they appear strong because of your resistance. Relax, go with them. Go with them, with totality.

Lao Tzu became enlightened sitting under a tree, seeing an old dead leaf falling slowly from the tree. Winds were taking it this way and that way, and no resistance. It was totally willing to go anywhere-because the truth that you are seeking is everywhere. All that is needed is a relaxed consciousness to see it.

Those winds are not against you, they are not distracting you. Your resistance is the against you, yours resistance is the problem. You have made search very serious. Be a little more playful. Dance with the wind; allow the wind to take to the north, to the south, to the east, to the west, without any resistance.

In your resistance exists your ego. “What is ego? People ask. It is your resistance to existence. And, “What is egoless ness? It is your relaxed state of being, a let-go. Wherever the winds take you, go with totality- willingly, joyously, dancing, singing. It is not that you will find the truth where the winds are taking you. You will find the truth in your non-resistance; you will find the truth in your let-go, in your playfulness, in your non-seriousness, in your laughter.

Sick people have dominated for too long-psychologically sick, spiritually sick-and they have made everybody serious. My whole approach is that of playfulness, non-seriousness, taking it easy.

Relaxation is prayer. Non-resistance is agelessness. And in agelessness all is found. The serious are tenser, the serious are worried. The serious are always concerned whether they are on the right path, and that, “There are no milestones.”

All paths are imaginary. Existence is just like the sky, there are no paths. The birds fly, but they don’t leave any footprints; the sky remains pathless. Such is your consciousness: a far clearer and far clearer space, where there are no footprints, no paths.

You cannot go gstry. To go astray you need a path. And finding the truth is not the goal, finding the truth cannot be made an ambition. Finding the truth is finding yourself, and you can find to itself in a relaxed state. Who can distract you from yourself. The wind may take you to the north, or to the south, but it cannot, you have learned the pathless path.

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.
Gina, USA
