Alchemical Secrets of Places of Holy Pilgrimage

6 June 1971 pm in Woodlands, Bombay, India

In the Pacific Ocean there is a small island, Easter Island, on which there are one thousand huge stone idols, all about seventy feet tall. The population of the island is just two hundred. It was found, when that island was first discovered, that it was so small, it couldn't produce food for more than two hundred people. When only two hundred people can live there, it was surprising to find such huge stone idols and as many as one thousand! Five idols for every person! Those people would not---OSHO NAMAN

The Secret of Shapes, Sounds and Fragrances

26 April 1971 pm in Woodlands, Bombay, India

Suppose we have a key in our hands. We cannot directly understand the purpose of it from the key itself, nor is it possible to imagine from the key itself that a great treasure is likely to be revealed with its help. There is no hidden indication in the key regarding the treasure; the key itself is closed. Even if we break it or cut it into pieces, we may find the metal of which it is made, but we cannot learn anything about the hidden treasure which the key is capable of revealing. And whenever---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 9

A god is a despot

21 January 1988 pm in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, WHAT IS EXISTENCE? IS IT SOMETHING LIKE WHAT PEOPLE CALL GOD? Sampurna, existence is that which is, and God is that which is not. Existence is a reality, God is a fiction. Existence is available only to meditators, people of silence; God is a consolation for sick minds, sick psychologies. Existence is not your production ­ God is. That's why there is only one existence, but thousands of gods. Each according to his needs, each according to his suffering, each according to his expectations,---OSHO NAMAN

No one is insignificant

21 January 1988 am in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, THE OTHER MORNING, DISCOURSE LEFT ME FEELING TERRIFIED AND DESPERATE: DESPERATE TO SAVE THIS INCREDIBLE, BEAUTIFUL PLANET, AND TERRIFIED BECAUSE THE ODDS AGAINST US SEEM SO HIGH AND I FEEL SO INSIGNIFICANT, AND HELPLESS TO DO ANYTHING! THE ONLY THING I CAN SEE TO DO IS TO BE HERE WITH YOU AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, NOURISHING MY CONSCIOUSNESS AND SUPPORTING YOUR VISION. IS THERE ANY MORE THAT CAN BE DONE? Nayana, I can understand your desperation, your helplessness. This is how perhaps---OSHO NAMAN

Your master is your whole universe

20 January 1988 pm in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, I WAS WITH A VERY STRICT ENLIGHTENED TEACHER, LEE LOZOWICK, IN AMERICA FOR SIX YEARS. WHILE IN BOULDER, COLORADO, I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOUR SANNYASINS, AND THEN YOU. NOW, AFTER ONE WEEK IN POONA, A NAGGING FEELING HAS ARISEN IN ME: HAVE I TRULY TAKEN SANNYAS, AND ARE YOU TRULY MY MASTER? Prem Majjhama, the question asked by you... you will have to be prepared for a shock. I am going to analyze it point by point. You say, "I was with a very strict enlightened teacher, Lee---OSHO NAMAN

Guilt is inverted revenge

20 January 1988 am in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, EVERY TIME YOU CALL HOMOSEXUALITY A PERVERSION, EVEN THOUGH YOU DO NOT CONDEMN HOMOSEXUALS, I FEEL HURT AS I AM A GAY. I HAVE TRIED TO LOOK, TO WATCH, TO MEDITATE ON IT BUT STILL MY FEELINGS, MY LOVE GO NATURALLY AFTER MEN. SINCE BEING WITH A MAN I LIKE AND TRUST, I HAVE FELT SILENCE AND HAPPINESS. BUT IT IS DIFFICULT TO ACCEPT MYSELF TOTALLY JOYFULLY. BELOVED MASTER, HOW CAN I LIVE THESE MOMENTS WITHOUT FEELING PERVERTED? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING TOTALLY ACCEPTED BY---OSHO NAMAN

19 January 1988 pm in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, AT VARIOUS TIMES I HAVE HEARD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK AS "AN EXPERIMENT TO PROVOKE GOD" AND "A MODEL CITY FOR THE FUTURE." THEN THERE WAS THE WORLD TOUR. IN THE PRESENT CONTEXT OF ACCELERATING GLOBAL CRISIS, HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK NOW, AND WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THOSE WHO HAVE GATHERED AROUND YOU HERE? Mutribo, there are many things you have asked. The most fundamental thing is to remember that whatever is happening here is not work. To call it work implies tension,---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 4

Fear is to be understood, not conquered

19 January 1988 am in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT ONE HAD TO CONQUER FEAR, AND THEN DEATH WOULD NOT BE SCARY ANYMORE. THE OTHER DAY I WAS SITTING IN A PLACE IN THE HILLS WHERE PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND I SAW THAT DEATH IS SWEET. NOW I THINK IT MUST BE MORE LIKE THIS ­ THAT DEATH HELPS ONE TO UNDERSTAND FEAR; THAT FIRST YOU EXPERIENCE DEATH AND SHE HELPS YOU SEE WHAT FEAR IS ALL ABOUT. IS IT LIKE THIS? CAN YOU TALK ABOUT IT PLEASE? Mukti Gandha, your question is based on complete misunderstanding,---OSHO NAMAN

Truth: beyond mind, beyond language

25 February 1988 pm in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, WHAT IS YOUR CONCEPT ABOUT GOD? Rahul, before I answer your question, I would like to say something about you. Unless something is said about you, the question will not have a proper context. You belong to the Krishnamurti Foundation of India. In the first place, his whole life Krishnamurti tried to say that nobody should be his follower, that there should be no doctrine in his name, that there should be no organization around him, that he is not teaching you some---OSHO NAMAN

Hari Om Tat Sat Chapter 3 In the search is theego

CHAPTER 3

In the search is the ego

18 January 1988 pm in Gautam the Buddha Auditorium

Question 1 BELOVED MASTER, WHEN YOU SAID LAST NIGHT THAT I AM ENLIGHTENED, IT REALLY FREAKED ME OUT. IT LOOKS LIKE I'M MUCH MORE AT EASE WITH BEING UNENLIGHTENED AND SEARCHING FOR IT, RATHER THAN JUST BEING ENLIGHTENED. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE QUESTION IS BUT I FEEL I NEED A SLAP TO WAKE ME UP! Niyama, the question you have asked must be reflecting the question of many people. It is significant in the sense that being enlightened brings a full stop to your desires, longings, searchings. All that you have done,---OSHO NAMAN
