202 (Jokes of Mulla Nasrudin)
Miscellaneous, 1 Chapters, Year Published : May 1974
Image Not Available Content : 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?
A Cup of Tea
Letters written from 1962 to 1971, Miscellaneous, 350 Chapters, Year Published : May 1983
A Cup of Tea Content : I received your letter. How lovingly you insist on my writing something, and here am I, drowned in a deep silence! I speak, I work, but I am steeped in emptiness within. There, there is no movement. Thus I seem to be living two lives at one time. What a drama! But perh' all of life is a drama and becoming aware of this opens the door to a unique freedom…
Books I Have Loved
Talks given from 1982, Miscellaneous, 16 Chapters
Books I Have Loved Content : But silence speaks in its own way, sings its own song of joy, of peace, of beauty and blessings; otherwise there would not have been a TAO TE CHING, nor would there have been a SERMON ON THE MOUNT. I consider these to be the real poetries although they are not compiled in any poetic way. They are outsiders. They are kept out. This is true in a way: they don't belong to the norm, to the standard, they don't belong to any measurements; they are beyond all of them, hence they are brushed over…
Early Talks
Miscellaneous talks from the early days, Miscellaneous, 12 Chapters
Image Not Available Content : OSHO : As far as my mission in life is concerned, there is no such thing as my mission. Neither is there any my, nor is there any mission. I am not teaching something to others -- there is no message to be given to the world. Messages are many, missions are enough -- and there is no lack of missionaries, nor is there any lack of thoughts, ideologies, isms. On the contrary, the mind of the world is much too burdened with these things. To me it seems that if the mind of man can be unburdened, only then is there any possibility of living the truth, or of feeling life in its totality. Ideologies, thoughts, isms, missions, they all add to the burden of the mind…
Letters
Letters written from 1964 to 1965 and 1970/71, Miscellaneous, 2 Chapters
Image Not Available Content : Beloved Sohan, Choosing between truth and oneself, the one who chooses truth finds truth and his own being. And the one who chooses himself loses both. Man has to lose himself before he becomes the truth. No one moves into truth without I paying this price. One's very existing is the barrier. One's very self veils the truth…
The Earthen Lamps
59 Letters written from 1967, Miscellaneous, 1 Chapters, Year Published : 1968
Image Not Available Content : I have heard a story. Thousands of years ago, a town with temples of gods got submerged in the sea. The bells of those drowned temples are still ringing. It is possible that the stroke of water makes them ring. Or, they keep ringing on account of the fish running here and there striking them. Be it as it may, the bells ring even today; and even today, their sweet music can be heard on the sea-shore…
Silent Period
Talks given from the Silent Period of the Ranch, Miscellaneous, 7 Chapters
Image Not Available Content : Osho : There is not God, hence the question does not arise. "Bhagwan" does not mean God, it simply means "The Blessed One." The very idea of God is non-democratic. Either everything is God or nothing is God…
Glimpses of a Golden Childhood
Talks given from 1984, Miscellaneous, 51 Chapters, Year Published : 1985
Glimpses of a Golden Childhood Content : It is a beautiful morning. Again and again the sun rises and it is always new. It never grows old. Scientists say it is millions of years old; nonsense! Every day I see it. It is always new. Nothing is old. But scientists are grave-diggers, that's why I say they look so grave, serious. This morning, again the miracle of existence. Each moment it is happening, but only very few, very, very few ever encounter it…
The Great Challenge
Talks given from 1970 to 1971, Miscellaneous, 13 Chapters, Year Published : 1982
The Great Challenge Content : The first thing to be remembered about meditation is that it is not something that can be done. Throughout the world people have the notion that meditation means doing something. It is not a doing, it is not an act, it is something that happens. It is not that YOU go to it; it comes to you and penetrates you. It destroys you in one way and recreates you in another. It is something so vital and so infinite that it cannot be a part of your doing…
Lead Kindly Light
Some Enlightened Moments with Osho, Talks given from 1972, Miscellaneous, 1 Chapters, Year Published : 1972
Image Not Available Content : Words are impotent to express Truth. Truth can be expressed only in silence. The moment we enter silence, the mystery of Truth is revealed. Man's misfortune is that he has forgotten to be silent; and therefore his entire relationship with Nature has been vitiated. Nature knows only the language of silence. He who knows not that language, ipso facto, loses touch with Nature. And mankind's misery is due to man's distance from nature…
