Nine Sutras

Description

From the Jacket

Whatsoever comes to a man who has attained to emptiness, silence and meditation is immediately echoed back. He is taking and giving each moment – there is no gap between his taking and giving. It is like the waves touching the shore and being immediately returned. Each moment, the shore remains free of debt.

The process of meditation does not take you to some new world; it only introduces you to the world in which you have already been for lives upon lives.

Back of the Book

Osho Talks for the first time on his nine sutras. Opening Boundless new Dimensions to the Meaning and Significance of the Term Yoga, He Illuminates Its vast scope and takes us way beyond what may well be our limited and limiting understanding of it. Using modern scientific knowledge to help us experiment with and experience our inner world, Osho Gives us an in-depth introduction to His Famous Dynamic Meditation and Takes us on a timeless journey into the beyond, Home to ourselves.

"I have told you these nine sutras not so that your knowledge may increase, not so that you may become more knowledgeable….I have said all these things in the hope that, perhaps, you may get nudged a little and you may take off on some journey."

Preface

Osho explains the depth and meaning of the word "sutra," tracing its use back to over ten thousand years ago.

Because there was no writing – writing was not yet invented – every master had to speak in small maxims, not elaborate treatises, but in small sutras. The word sutra means "the thread."

They are giving you the very minimum to remember, because to remember a vast amount of a great philosophical treatise will not be possible. And there is a danger of forgetting something, there is a danger of adding something of your own. So the way of the sutras was the only possibility – to write in such a condensed way that every disciple of any master can remember the small, seed-like maxims.

But they are only seeds. They indicate the way, they indicate a certain direction. Unless your heart becomes a soil for those seeds, they will not sprout into leaves, into branches, into flowers, into fruits. Those seeds contain everything that is going to happen, they have the whole inbuilt program. If you allow that seed to enter into you being, as it sinks deeper and deeper, you will realize all that is contained in it. It will become a reality in you.

But because individuals are different, because individuals are unique – each individual heart is not the same soil, not the same territory, not the same land – the seed will have to grow according to the soil. Somebody's heart may be very fertile, creative. The tree may become very huge, the foliage may be very green, and when the spring comes there will be thousands of flowers and fruits.

But somebody's heart may be very hard. The seed is the same, but the soil is not going to help the seed much. The seed has to grow against all odds, against all hindrances. The heart is not going to help but on the contrary it will hinder. It is just a seed which has fallen into a land full of stones. It may grow but it won't be the same as in a fertile creative heart. It may not attain to the same height; it may even be a bit crippled; it may not have much foliage; it may come to only a few flowers.

But the uniquenesses are such – somebody is a poet and the seed may become poetry. And somebody is a musician and the seed may become music. And somebody is a sculptor and the seed may become a beauty in stone. It will all depend in which kind of heart the seed falls. And there are many more implications.

It is possible that one heart may be very fertile and it may bring thousands of flowers. And one heart may not be so fertile and it may not bring thousands of flowers but just one flower – very huge, very big. Those thousand flowers will not be in any way competitive to this one flower. In numbers they may be many, but the beauty of this one flower has almost accumulated the whole beauty of thousands of flowers.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
