Every river just keeps flowing and one day it gets merged in the Ocean, from where its cycle begun by evaporation of water. Name of a river is the name of the path it traveled. Joshuto is name of the path, life lived as living human being, a person traveled to become what one is today and the journey is in progress till the beginning of the cycle is reached.
Studying Osho since my teen age and practicing simple meditation techniques following my routine made me a very confident person today. I attain Osho and his teachings to it. My religion also helped me in a lot of way to support my search. It is my trust in my religion and my personal journey following Osho's teachings too that I am able to understand the essence of Osho's teachings or other mystic's teaching through him that is worth following in today's context.
Osholeela.in is my effort to bring in notice of the people about successful works of a "controversial mystic" called Osho. His teachings have got a taste of time now that is a must for a person to be called as mystic or not. Like everyone of us, he was a human being. To err is a human. In my effort I will try to focus on the teachings that were adopted immediately by various religions and society so as to sustain till today. In some sense he brought much needed changes into them that people/society/religion were not able to bring themselves.
Some of his teachings were very absurd like "No family life" concept and it failed miserably. It can be assumed that he deliberately exaggerated so that we may be able to settle at some lower level, still better than before according to their level of courage. In a sense it gave flexibility to everyone while saved him from a lot of questions.
It is an effort to save people from "Blind Followers" of Osho without any experience of real meditation or existential bliss.
जोशुतो, उस अनोखे रास्ते का नाम है जो एक शरीर (स्ट्रक्चर) ने एक इंसान के रूप में जन्म लेने के बाद तय किया. उसमें मेरे सारे कर्मों और उनसे मिली सीख को जीवन में उतरने के फलस्वरूप जो मैने पाया वह यह की जीवन एक रास्ता है जो जो समष्टि अलग अलग रूपों में तय करती है | जन्म से नाम शरीर को दिया गया है लेकिन समष्टि शरीर के पहले भी थी और बाद में भी रहेगी | एक अनोखे (इनोवेटिव) रास्ते से समष्टि गुज़री जिसका नाम जोशुतो है |
जिस प्रकार सफेद बादल, हवा का ही एक घना रूप है, और कहीं भी आता-जाता है, बनता बिगड़ता रहता है, पल-पल जीता है वही जोशुतो का भी होने का ढंग है. यह उसने ओशनिक वेव होकर जाना है |
Kabir says that all the four ‘Vedas’ of Hindu contains wisdom of ages for today’s people.
Kabir has written ‘Saakhi’ of two lines in such a way that they contain extract of all these ‘Vedas’ combine. So if these vedas be treated as milk then Kabir’s ‘Saakhi’ are like ‘Butter’.
These Saakhi with meaning in ‘My English’ – as i have little understanding of it, but directly from heart as i feel it right, so literal meaning be not taken but the essence out of it, which is flowing through words be grasped or tried.
Comments on it will clear the doubt to some extent. Writing what is experienced is already impossible but Kabir tried, so i should too try at least.
Witnessing is very powerful when the witnesser is lost. Whenever the no-mind or ego less state happens to coincide with witnessing – one may get a glimpse of inside ‘truth’ that liberates, then you are no more same person. Kabir said that when outside and inside becomes one, then only you have achieved destiny as human being. We know about the outside only. Inside is not even felt by many! How can one meet to whom you do not know? Only the inside can find you, there is no other way this is why it is beyond our control. Even if inside wishes to meet you in present moment, then you must be looking at it too, to be able to meet.
Osho advices to become watcher.
No-mind state makes you available in present moment, and witnessing lets you see yourself so that anything coming out can see you ‘watching’ at it. Simple.
If you fear something it means you do not know ‘Who you are?’. Fear is always due to unknown, unexperienced or imaginary but well set as truth. Now neither you know ‘Who you are?’ nor you know about that something you fear. So there are two unknown, you are the reason for both too. If you meditate a little, search inside to know ‘Who am i?’ by removing all layers like name, education, colour etc you gathered (came to know from others about you!) since birth then you will be able to know your ‘Original face’, said Lalon Fakhir of Bangladesh now its followers called as Baul – wandering musician singing song to people about knowing their ‘original face’ and respect nature as dutis of every human being.
Once you know any one of two – Yourself or Fear then just by knowing or understanding fear will vanish. Knowing fear is difficult because you can go on making new fear. Once you have known your’self’ then fear will vanish altogether forever. This is why ‘you are giving power’ to both by not knowing yourself, the more you postpone your inside journey, the more power fear have over you.
It is astonishing that except human being no animal eats once its hunger is satisfied. Other animals gather around Lion to eat the left overs once its hunger gets satisfied. It seems human being remains hungry 24 hrs! This is also strange connection, may be due to food, that only human being has no time/season to enter into sex. Every animal has its time/season. By controlling food this proverb may be controlling the other strangely connected!
Three quarter of what you eat keeps your doctor alive- African proverb.
Food of mind is thought. Food of ego is power. Food of greed is money.
One quarter means the lesser the better, three quarter for doctor means working for others by loosing opportunity of enjoying human life by living simple life, enjoying your work as that will lead you to your inner beauty, kingdom of God.
Saint Kabir,India, said that path to be born as human being since beginning is very zig-zag till human being- like an ant moving in search of food from one corner of a room to another (means already we have travelled too much length to cover small distance because of lack of consciousness. Now only one quarter of a mile’s (cm in case of ant example) straight path is left but illusion of this world is so strong that no one can escape from it, if not taken proper precaution while eating, earning, living etc.
So three quarter of mile is already covered after taking birth as a human being and you have enjoyed all these already and now do not get indulged in it again. Focus on remaining one fourth by eating everything one fourth, as only at beginning point this illusion can be controlled.
