From the Jacket:
Rinzai would shout at his disciples to give them a first experience of their centering. You are both a circumference and a center. You live on the circumference; the shout simply pushes you to the center.
Once you experience being at the center you suddenly see the whole world changing. Your eyes are no more the same
“The authentic religion does no preach morality. Morality comes on its own accord. The authentic religion teaches you to be centered in yourself. Then everything that is good follows, and what is bad simply does not arise…. It is not that you are being good; you cannot be otherwise. This is the miracle of zen.”
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 and individual, the way 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.”
