CHAPTER 16

16 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Veet means going beyond, transcending, surpassing. Peter means a rock, a stone. Man is born as a rock but has to become a flower. Unless the rock of the heart opens and becomes a lotus life is in vain. And that's what happens in most cases: people are born as rocks, they live as rocks, they die as rocks. In fact life never happened to them. They never knew anything worth knowing, they never lived a moment of ecstasy, joy, utter abandon. They never knew what it means to be. They were and yet they were not. The heart closed is a rock; the heart---OSHO NAMAN

[To Bob, Osho adds Anand ­ making him the blissful and shining one.] Bliss has its own luminosity, it shines forth. You cannot hide it: it is like a lamp lit; it will show, it will shine, it will declare itself. Of course, utterly silent is its declaration. Non-aggressive is its declaration. but it cannot remain unmanifested. It has to be manifested; that is inevitable. That is one of the most essential qualities of bliss. Misery you can hide; bliss you cannot. And there is no need to either ­ it has to be shared, it has to be danced, it has---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 14

14 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Anand means bliss, Tineke means pure ­ pure bliss. Bliss is impure if it is dependent on something; bliss is pure when it is absolutely independent. Bliss is impure if it is conditional; bliss is pure if it is unconditional. The bliss that arises in love is not pure because the other is needed. Without the other the bliss will disappear. The very energy that becomes bliss, without the other will become misery. The bliss that arises in meditation is pure because it is totally your own. It is just welling up within your own being; it has no---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 13

13 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Prem means love, Barbara means a stranger. Love is a stranger in this world; hate is not. hate is part of the very fabric of this world; love comes from the beyond. Hate belongs to the earth; love is part of the sky. Hate gravitates downwards; love soars upwards. Love is a stranger, and because love is a stranger, love becomes the vehicle to God. Because love is not part of this world love can take you into another world, to the other shore; it can become the vehicle, the boat. Hold fast to love and drop anything that goes against love. That's---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 12

12 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Prem means love, Anne means prayer ­ love is prayer. Those who pray without love, their prayers are empty, hollow of meaning. Their prayers are without wings. Their prayers will never reach to God. Only when love throbs at the heart inside the prayer is it alive, significant, and has it the energy to reach to God. It reaches instantly, no time gap is needed; in fact it reaches before you have said it. Prem means love, Franck means free. Love exists only as freedom. The moment freedom is gone, love is gone; then you have only a corpse. The bird---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 11

11 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Anand means bliss, Alan means harmony. Harmony is bliss; bliss is another name of harmony. Misery is discord. Existence is always in harmony ­ it is only man who falls apart because of the ego, because of the idea of "I am". He wants to create a world of his own, separate, private, hence he becomes a small island and loses contact with the total. Sannyas is a bridge back to the total, a journey backwards to the source. And the only thing that has to be renounced is the ego because that is the only discordant note. Once ego is gone you---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 10

10 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Deva means divine, Arie means black ­ divine blackness. Black is symbolic of death. It is also symbolic of infinity, of the mysterious, of the uncaused. Light has to be caused. Light needs fuel; once the fuel is finished light is gone. Darkness is eternal. It needs no cause, no fuel: it is simply there. Light comes and goes; darkness remains, abides. Remember these qualities of the dark. Life is not mathematical. Those who try to find out clear-cut answers in life go on missing the whole point. Life is a beautiful chaos. It is poetry; it is---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 1

1 May 1979 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Hans means God's gracious gift, Ananto means infinite. The full name will mean God's infinite gracious gift. Life has no beginning and no end. It is eternity, and that is God's gift. God has given himself in the gift, because life is God. All that is needed is a certain awakening in your heart so you can see it, feel it, taste it, touch it. The gift has been waiting and waiting for you for thousands of years, but you have been asleep, as everybody has been. Sannyas has to become an awakening. Sannyas has to be nothing but a great effort to wake---OSHO NAMAN

Jokes of Mulla Nasrudin Chapter 1

CHAPTER 1

During his discourses on the AKSHYA UPANISHAD

"This is worth considering. It is significant. The first thing to understand is that except for man, no animal is capable of laughter. So laughter shows a very high peak in the evolution of life. If you go out on the street and see a buffalo laughing, you will be scared to death. And if you report it, then nobody will believe that it can happen. It is impossible. Why don't animals laugh? Why can't trees laugh? There is a very deep cause for laughter. Only that animal can laugh which can get bored. Animals and trees are not bored. Boredom---OSHO NAMAN

Kundalini, Shaktipat and Grace

Question 1 QUESTIONER: HOW IS INTENSE BREATHING AND THE ASKING OF THE QUESTION "WHO AM I?" RELATED WITH THE PROCESS OF THE AWAKENING OF THE KUNDALINI AND ITS PENETRATION INTO THE VARIOUS CENTERS OR CHAKRAS OF THE BODY? There is a relationship, and a deep relationship at that, between the two processes. In fact, it is the breath that connects the soul with the body; breath forms the bridge between the two. That is why with the cessation of the breath life ceases to be. Life goes on even if the brain is damaged. One can survive even if---OSHO NAMAN
