The Fabric of Life (On The Songs of The Mystic Kabir)
The Fabric of Life (On The Songs of The Mystic Kabir)
by Osho
Description
About The Book

Kabir was 15th century mystic and weaver. Talking his songs as a starting point, Osho shares insight into such question as love, the implications of money, how people communicatewith each other, the longing for personal freedom, and finding happiness beyond our desires. All these are issues woven into the fabric of life.

The book also introduces and explains in detail the working of the OSHO Kundalini Meditation, which-when done rightly-helps “your whole energy to be ecstatic and move upwards into joy and bliss.”

“The fabric, the cloth of life, is very fine. And the more you are able to see how fine it is, the more you will be able to recognize the subtlety of its making, the more you will be filled with gratitude, the more you will find the treasure invaluable.

 

About The Author

Osho defies categorization. His thousand of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho’s books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recording of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it, “So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you.. I am talking also for the future generation.” Osho has been described by The Sunday Times in London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by American author Tom Robbins’s as “the dangerous man since Jesus Christ.” Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people- along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha- who have changed the destiny of India.

About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha’’-capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha.

Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho’s talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest potential of today’s (and tomorrow’s) science and technology.

Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation the acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique OSHO Active Meditations are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of tillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.

Two autobiographical works by the author are available: Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic, St Martin’s Press, New York (book and eBook) Glimpses of a Golden Childhood, OSHO Media International, Pune, India.

 

Preface

Kabir is one of the greatest mystics of the world. Meditate on Kabir-pay attention to him, to what he says. He is a very simple man, not learned in any way-all that he says is out of his experience. He is not a scholar, he does not know anything about the Veda and the Koran and the Bible. All that he says is out of his own existential experience. He is not a theoretician or a philosopher; he is a poet. And not only a poet, he is a mystic poet; the difference is that the poet sometimes has glimpses of God, and then he falls back again-rare moments of flight.

In India we have a saying that if you love the poetry of a poet, never go to see him because you will be disappointed. You will find a very ordinary man-even more ordinary than ordinary people. Or you may find somebody vulgar, immoral, obscene- and his poetry was so spiritual. The saying is right: if you love the poetry forget the poet, never go to see him. Because the poet only jumps-in rare moments of insight he flies high, he’s turned on, some visions descend in him… And then he is closed again, turned off; then he is an ordinary man. Only sometimes, like lightning, poetry comes to him.

That is the difference between a poet and a mystic poet. A mystic poet has arrived. It is not a flight of his imagination; it is not just a vision-now it is his very life. He breathed in God, he lives in God, he lives like God, he is God. So when he says something, it is not just accidental; when he says something, it is from his very core.

Kabir is a mystic poet. Listen to his melody, sing his song; and if you understood, then become a little more aware. And don’t look for the forest! There are only trees, there is no forest-forest is just a collective noun, an abstraction. There is no God high in the heaven; there are gods and gods and gods-the tree god, the rock god, the river god, the man god, the woman god-there are gods and gods and gods, but there is no God.

This whole existence is divine. Love the trees, if you want to know something about the forest. Love people, if you want to know anything about God. Each particular manifestation can become a window, a door. Don’t be too obsessed by words-the word God is not God, the word, and move more and more towards the existential.

Feel more, rather than thinking. Through feeling, your prayer will arise. And through feeling, one day you will be dissolved. When you are dissolved, God is.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
