JOHN 8 1. JESUS WENT INTO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES. 2. AND EARLY IN THE MORNING HE CAME AGAIN INTO THE TEMPLE, AND ALL THE PEOPLE CAME UNTO HIM; AND HE SAT DOWN, AND TAUGHT THEM. 3. AND THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES BROUGHT UNTO HIM A WOMAN TAKEN IN ADULTERY; AND WHEN THEY HAD SET HER INT HE MIDST, 4. THEY SAID UNTO HIM, MASTER, THIS WOMAN WAS TAKEN IN ADULTERY, IN THE VERY ACT. 5. NOW MOSES IN THE LAW COMMANDED US, THAT SUCH SHOULD BE STONED: BUT WHAT SAYEST THOU? 6. THIS THEY SAID, TEMPTING HIM, THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE TO ACCUSE HIM.---OSHO NAMAN

INTO A BLINDING DARKNESS GO THEY WHO WORSHIP ACTION ALONE. INTO AN EVEN GREATER DARKNESS GO THEY WHO WORSHIP MEDITATION. FOR IT IS OTHER THAN MEDITATION, IT IS OTHER THAN ACTION. THIS WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE ENLIGHTENED ONES. MEDITATION AND ACTION ­ HE WHO KNOWS THESE TWO TOGETHER, THROUGH ACTION LEAVES DEATH BEHIND AND THROUGH MEDITATION GAINS IMMORTALITY. INTO A BLINDING DARKNESS GO THEY WHO IDOLIZE THE ABSOLUTE, INTO AN EVEN GREATER DARKNESS GO THEY WHO DOTE ON THE RELATIVE. FOR IT IS OTHER THAN THE RELATIVE,

IT IS OTHER THAN THE---OSHO NAMAN

Knowing Nothing About Everything

18 October 1980 am in Buddha Hall

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME? I FEEL PROUD TO BE A POLACK! Prem Kavita, THERE IS nothing wrong to be a Polack. Polacks are as beautiful as anybody else, or a little more, a little more juicy. A sign outside a police station read: Man Wanted For Rape. Next day three Polacks applied for the job. But it is certainly wrong to feel proud. Whether one feels to be proud as an Indian or as a Polack or as an Englishman, it does not matter. These are just excuses. The real thing is that---OSHO NAMAN

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, CAN AN ENLIGHTENED PERSON BE WRONG? THIS REFERS TO WHAT YOU TOLD US ABOUT J. KRISHNAMURTI, WHO KEEPS ON SAYING THAT ONE DOES NOT NEED A MASTER, WHICH IS ACTUALLY NOT RIGHT PLEASE COMMENT. Prem Pantha, AN ENLIGHTENED person can never be wrong. Neither J. Krishnamurti is wrong, but he never considers the situation in which you are. He considers only the space in which he is, and that freedom is part of enlightenment. The enlightened person has reached the highest peak of consciousness; his---OSHO NAMAN

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, SITTING FRETFULLY, SQUIRMING ENDLESSLY, DOES THE SPRING STILL COME AND THE GRASS GROW BY ITSELF? Anand Daniel, THE SPRING still comes. It does not depend whether you are sitting silently or fretfully, whether you are sitting or not sitting at all. It does not depend on you; it comes on its own accord. And the grass goes on growing, but if you are not sitting silently you will miss it. It will come, but you will not be able to feel it. It will come, but you will not be able to---OSHO NAMAN

Bound in Deep Togetherness

15 October 1980 am in Buddha Hall

THE ONE SELF NEVER MOVES, YET IS TOO SWIFT FOR THE MIND. THE SENSES CANNOT REACH IT, YET LT IS EVER BEYOND THEIR GRASP. REMAINING STILL, IT OUTSTRIPS ALL ACTIVITY, YET IN IT RESTS THE BREATH OF ALL THAT MOVES. IT MOVES, YET MOVES NOT. IT IS FAR, YET IT IS NEAR. IT IS WITHIN ALL THIS, AND YET WITHOUT ALL THIS. HE WHO SEES EVERYTHING AS NOTHING BUT THE SELF, AND THE SELF IN EVERYTHING HE SEES,

SUCH A SEER WITHDRAWS FROM NOTHING. FOR THE ENLIGHTENED, ALL THAT EXISTS IS NOTHING BUT THE SELF, SO HOW COULD ANY SUFFERING OR---OSHO NAMAN

14 October 1980 am in Buddha Hall

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, MY FRIEND, WHO HAS A PH.D. IN COMPUTING, AND WHOSE THESIS WAS ON "ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE", SAYS THAT MAN IS A BIOCHEMICAL COMPUTER AND NOTHING MORE. THE BUDDHA HAS SAID THAT ALL THINGS ARE COMPOSITE AND THERE IS NO SELF, NO SOUL, NO SPIRIT, NO "I", WHICH SEEMS TO AGREE WITH MY FRIEND'S VIEWPOINT. COULD YOU PLEASE HELP ME, BECAUSE I FEEL THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MISSING FROM THESE VIEWS BUT I CAN'T SEE IT MYSELF. Prem Hamid, MAN certainly is a biocomputer, but something more too. About---OSHO NAMAN

13 October 1980 am in Buddha Hall

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, IS THIS A NEW PHASE OF YOUR WORK ­ TWO COMPLETE DISCOURSES WITHOUT A SINGLE JOKE? Premananda, THANK YOU for reminding me! I had just forgotten all about jokes! Here are two jokes for the two discourses: A young man was driving home from work one night in the pouring rain when he noticed an attractive woman standing on the footpath, soaking wet. He stopped and offered her a ride home. When they arrived at her apartment, she invited him in for a drink. After a few drinks, one thing led to---OSHO NAMAN

Living in your own Light

12 October 1980 am in Buddha Hall

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, WHAT IS GOD? Prem Sukavi, GOD is not a person. That is one of the greatest misunderstandings, and it has prevailed so long that it has become almost a fact. Even if a lie is repeated continuously for centuries it is bound to appear as if it is a truth. God is a presence, not a person. Hence all worshipping is sheer stupidity. Prayerfulness is needed, not prayer. There is nobody to pray to; there is no possibility of any dialogue between you and God. Dialogue is possible only between two---OSHO NAMAN

It is Already the Best

26 October 1980 am in Buddha Hall

The first question: Question 1 OSHO, I AM FEELING HELPLESS. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I CAN DO ANY MORE. IT IS AS IF EVERYTHING I DO WON'T CHANGE THIS, IT ONLY MAKES THINGS WORSE. BUT ALSO DOING NOTHING DOES NOT MAKE THINGS BETTER. YOU SAY THAT EMPTINESS IS BLISS. FOR ME IT SEEMS TO BE DULL AND BORING; IT IS LIKE BEING DEAD. WHEN THERE IS NOTHING I CANNOT SEE ANY BEAUTY IN IT. I AM FED UP WITH IT, I WANT TO GET OUT OUT. PLEASE ANSWER ME, BUT PLEASE DON'T ANSWER ME LIKE THIS: THAT TAKING SANNYAS WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING AND MAKE---OSHO NAMAN
