Description

From the Jacket

I am neither a savior nor a prophet. I am simply a man amongst you. I am not talking to you from a high peak, from the point of view that I know and you don't know. I am talking to you man to man. All that I am saying to you is that there was a time when I was asleep just as you are asleep, and there is nothing wrong in it. It is perfectly okay with existence- you can sleep for eternity; but it is not good for you.

What you are seeing in your sleep is only dreams, hallucinations. If you want to know the reality and its beauty you have to wake up. And only you can do it, nobody can help you in any way.

I can go on shouting till my last breath. That will not help unless you are ready to hear and be receptive. And even if you hear, you are receptive, then too you have to walk the path from the circumference of your life to the centre of your being. Nobody can do it on your behalf. I teach the individual. Jesus tries to convince the masses; I don't care about the masses at all. Religion is the greatest creative art, in which you create yourself again. You become the womb and you give birth from the mother's womb is only physical. You have to give yourself a birth is going to bring your spiritually with all its flowers, with all its mysteries, with all its roses, with all its freedom, its truth, its beauty, its godliness. But you have to do it.

From the Back of the Book:

To me religion is an individual love affair with existence. I teach you rebellion! Come out of the masses. Stand alone like a lion and live your life according to your light. Find the light and it will show you the path. The path that is shown by your own light is the only path that is right. What others have been telling may be right for them; it cannot be right for you.

 

Introduction

This series of discourses was given almost exactly one year before Osho left His body. It was a time of tremendous intensity and tremendous depth for all those who sat with Him; a time when the impact, the urgency and the beauty of the evening hours with the Master reverberated right through the following day.

He had only recently declared He was no longer to be called Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh; He had not yet declared Himself Osho. Hundreds of thousands of His disciples worldwide sat in the gap, no longer knowing how to relate to their personal spiritual Master. He was already moving away from us, cutting our attachment.

Around this period He was talking for record lengths of time. His average discourse of one and a half hours went up to three, sometimes even four hours each evening as He showered on us like never before. "The sutra is long and the night is short. I hope that I will be able to finish it before sunrise," He jokes with us one evening. In less than three months He had stopped talking publicly forever.

These five discourses are based on the sutras of the Zen master Yakusan. But as Osho Himself makes clear: "Never think for a moment that what I am saying about Zen has been said by the Zen masters themselves. I am constantly improving, improvising. Their background was their background; today that background does not exist, that world is no longer there. Man's concerns have changed, man's condition- ings have changed. Man is programmed in different ways. I have to deprogram the people who I am facing."

This book is not so much about Zen as a Zen look at the world around us. The range and diversity of the subjects covered is vast as He points out, lovingly and often with considerable humor, the ridiculousness and the sickness of the human condition and our world; sickness that, He says, could well prove terminal if we don't wake up.

Osho is not a prophet of doom, He simply speaks a truth which is possible only from an enlightened perspective. And if you let it, this truth cuts through your being to the very point where your own buddha, your own truth, lives. And what a miracle, what an excitement it is when this inner truth is recognized and felt.

This is what these discourses are really about: waking us up, giving us a taste of truth, a taste of Zen. "Zen is very straightforward," He tells us. "Neither statues can help, nor scriptures can help. The only thing that can help is going deeper into yourself, realizing the inner sky and the freedom that comes with it."

At the end of each discourse the Master leads the gathering of thousands directly into this space with His own unique brand of guided meditation. From a crescendo of laughter and gibberish, He takes us straight to the place where the inner buddha resides: Straight to the Point of Enlightenment.
