Premda communication as such is difficult of course it is more difficult between lovers.
But first you have to understand the general difficulty of communication. Each mind has
been conditioned by different parents different teachers different priests different
politicians. It is a different world in itself.
And when two minds try to communicate as for as the ordinary mundance things are
concerned there is no difficulty.
But the moment they start moving beyond things into the world of concepts
communications starts becoming more and more difficult.
For example Gautam the Buddha does not have any God in his philosophy. He is far
more free from God than even Frederick Nietzsche.
At least Frederick Nietzsche states that God is dead. The implication is clear that is
used to be alive now it is dead.
Gautam Buddha does not talk about God at all. It is so irrelevant that he does not pay
any attention to the subject. Now to a Christian or to a Hindu or to a Mohammedan it is
impossible to conceived of a religion without God. God is the center of Most of the
Only three religions are free of God. One is Gautam Buddha’s another is Mahavira’s and
the third is Lao Tzu’s.
When for the first time Christian missionaries came into contact with Buddhist scriptures
they could not even conceive the idea that a religion could be without a god. What kind of
religion will there be if there is no God? How are you going to pray? To Whom? Who is
going to send his prophets and his only begotten son? Who is going to send saviors for
you? Who is going to judge whether you are to be sent to hell or heaven?
God removed hell and heaven are also removed. God removed punishment and reward
are also removed. God removed the very idea of judgment is removed. Then there is no
sin and no virtue who will decide it?
And they were even more surprised that Gautam Buddha is known by his disciples and
now even by those who are not disciples as Bhagwan Gautam Buddha. Now Bhagwan
means God. This was very puzzling. Gautam Buddha does not believe in any god.
How does he allow his disciples to address him as Bhagwan? The same is the situation
with Jainism. They are even more strict about the absence of God. Buddha simply
ignores the whole subject.
It is not worth any consideration. Jainism does not leave it, because there is a danger of
the whole thing cropping up again, once Mahavira is gone. He wants it to be clearly
stated that there is no God, there never has been any God and there is no creation
because there is no creator. It is an evolving world.
What Charles Darwin found two thousand years later was known to Mahavira, that it is
not a creation, it is an evolving world. It has been here forever and will be here forever.
The whole concept of creation and a creator is just idiotic Mahavira was very strict; he did
not want God in some disguise to pop up when he was gone just because people have a
certain unconscious hankering for it. It gives a certain false consolation to people.
To avoid the false consolation is absolutely necessary if you really want to be consoled.
If you authentically want to be at peace with existence, then all that is false and based
only on belief has to be discarded. But again the problem -- the followers of Mahavira
addressed him as Bhagwan. Now communication becomes difficult, because Bhagwan
means a totally different thing to the Buddhists and the Jainas, than it means to the
Hindus, Mohammedans, Christians, Jews. Their whole concept develops in a totally
For the religions which are God-centered, God comes in the beginning, before everything.
He creates the world and nobody bothers from where he comes. If there was no world at
all, how did he manage to exist and where? There must have been a small island, or
some cloud -- something. God cannot exist in nothingness, and if God can exist in
nothingness, then what is the problem? Why bring him in unnecessarily? Existence is
perfectly good, autonomous, not dependent on a despot which you call God.
According to those who do not believe, he is whimsical, because for eternity he just
remained silent What was he doing? Smoking? Taking drugs? Or just dreaming?
Sleeping? In a coma? What is the situation? -- because according to Christians he
created the world only six thousand years ago.
And six thousand years is such a stupid idea, because India has scriptures which are far
more ancient than the Christian God.

The Osho Collection
The Osho Collection presents for the first time on DVD a Selection of Twenty original
talks by Osho on Significant subjects and essentials questions.
Communication between human beings is difficult because we have being conditioned in
different ways. When we get into the realm of couple relationships the situation gets even
more complicated due to different functioning of female and male minds. Osho says
lovers unless they come to a state of meditative consciousness will not be able to
communicate their communication will always be a conflict. It will never be a communion.
The only possibility is that consciousness of both of them envolves to a point that it goes
beyond mind then all conditioning are left behind.
