An existential drama played through Osho as hero.

Existence has infinite ways of expressing itself. This planet was, is and will never remain voided by its presence in the form of human being.  Whenever a manifested form of existence realises that he is playing a drama in real life he/she becomes hero/heroine of that story. Here only the main character of drama knows that it is a play and act as if living life of a real human being.

In Hindi ‘Leela’ means a play or drama. Osholeela means the drama played by the existence in which Osho was main hero and only he knows that a role is being played as if it is a real life.

Inverted Mind

Every time we try for peace of mind and all the methods give only temporary relief. Mind gets adjusted with it and again it begins its work to disturb the peace.

While learning from teachings of Buddha, Lao Tzu and their unique mix Zen, the thought of “why at all the God has given us mind?”, And as all other creatures and nature is always in happy mood, “Why we are deprived of this natural happiness?” came to everyone, who is a social and intelligent human being.

Our mind acts as a prism, which breaks down or split the light ray to seven colours called Rainbow. Our mind is a different kind of prism and it breaks down everything that we sense into two. Light and dark, cool and warm, mine and others etc etc.

If ray of light converted into a Rainbow is again allowed to pass through an inverted prism then that inverted prism will again  get combined into a light ray. This is where the Prism and Inverted Prism together act as if there was no prism in the path of the light ray.

This scientific fact is being used to describe my understanding about no-mind state described by Buddha, Lao Tzu and Jesus – as Jesus-consciousness (as per my info from Osho talks).

Ancient Indian sages devised Sheerasana i.e. A  Yoga that requires one to stand inverted on one’s head instead of legs. This Yoga has nothing to do with inversion of mind as one can see everything upside down only.

We have five senses and they are able to sense with the help of its recognition, interpretation etc by the mind. The interpreted information gets converted into personal information due to difference in experiences, vocabulary, knowledge of that person. That is why after hearing a sentence, or when scent is smelled or scene is watched  by many they all interpret its meaning or essence quite different from all others.

As per Osho, all these senses have two ends from one end we are able to see outside to inside and there it has to pass through the mind. Another end which is inside is also able to see/hear/smell/taste/touch from inside to outside. All unexplained experiences are from inside to outside use of senses but the moment passes through so fast that we remained in a state of awe, and it passes.

This is Inverted mind in use and if one is able to join his/her mind and no-mind together then he/she is able to see through the existence. This is where eternal Peace of Mind is achieved. God and his creation both at the same time but then the seer of the scene is lost – as per Osho. By practice it happens.

To know about Osho’s NAV Sannyas or neo sannyas, a way of life to live by fulfilling all personal and societal obligations while retaining oneself as pure for spiritual progress whenever free time available in life. Then focussing fully on self awareness when free from all responsibilities or by taking decision and be free from them.

Be like a grass leaf.

Tornado, Tsunami, Cyclone creates large scale destruction. We have seen many such unimaginable situations from pictures of affected area. A ship or boat is hanging on a tree! Cars floating in the sea!

Have anyone seen a picture of grass leaf after the impact of such natural disaster? If it is possible to take a close-up of a grass leaf, I hope it will the picture of feeling more stronger and fresher than before. While all big trees standing tall have suffered extensive irrecoverable damage.

This existence is also like an infinite Tornado, Cyclone or Tsunami, and it is such big that even if we are part of it we cannot imagine our self within it. Like a dry leaf at top of a tornado moving at very slow speed in space. When it settles, in due course of time, and comes in contact with the ground it can feel the tornado or cyclone etc.

If we have a strong ego of being a Doctor or Politician or Leader, being a Rich or Famous or both, or even a great server of society or religious person then it is living like a strong tree. The existence is exceptionally vast or infinite and we are nothing or even not noticeable to it. It is futile to fight with it saying I am this and this or that. It is in the effort to resist the existential cyclone it falls to never get up. It is uprooted!

The grass leaf  surrenders to it. It makes way for the cyclone. Its roots becomes stronger after it. It gains confidence by overcoming it and cleaned of all dust or dirt etc. gathered.

Why?

Surrender is the key. Surrender to the existence must be total and unconditional, like a grass leaf, then it is only 100%. It bends or respects by gives way to others thoughts/action/feelings. In our life we are sometimes at top of the cyclone of existence then we cannot even feel it as part of it. When we come down or settles then only we can feel the strong current and its destruction. We are part of it. A part cannot resist the whole. A hand cannot resist the mind. No one is bigger, higher or stronger than the other. We are like different body parts performing their given task to their best to serve the system of human body. No tress is better than the other. No hill is better than the other or even a stone. No river is better than the other. Each is a part of this existence.

While fighting, when an animal withdraws or surrenders against the stronger one, the stronger one accepts it as equal and don’t kill it to prove its supremacy. So is with existence, when you completely accept yourself, your body, your personality and your nothingness in comparison of it. Some human being even dares to fight with it – declaring your ego as being this and that- but in vain.

Surrender is the key to live as human being. Then every cyclone will fill you with more energy and confidence…

 

Jesus or Buddha or Krishna in every act.

We all know that Judas sold Jesus for 30 silver coins. Had he has not handed over Jesus to people who are searching for him, he could have enlightened many hearts with his love. Jesus is a transformed soul, such soul exists in existence for eternity. And he is available to all of us. He resides in every soul. In every selfless act of goodness or service or compassion by anyone, anywhere in the existence, he immediately becomes part of that soul.

So whenever a person is cheating his soul, that person is actually selling Jesus for some sensory pleasure(s) or silver coin or power or name & fame, just like Judas. SO in every act God is with us, if it is act of goodness then he is being praised, and if it is act of cheating or selling our soul, he is being sold.

 

How much equality is already given to us by God.

When we see a flower like Rose, our eyes gets struck at the flower itself because it attracts. When we try to pluck it from the rose plant then we came to experience or know that there are thorns too. Because our focus is on flower we could not see the thorns. Rose has a purpose and the thorn has a purpose. The thorn protected it, for you, get eaten away by animals! It is like army for a country so that people can live peacefully.  The same branch gave nutritions to rose and the thorn. The same stem carried the nutrients from roots to the branch. The same roots collected the nutrients from soil and same light and air processed it.

In the same way we are serving different purposes of life as human being. The same local body is serving us. The same state is administrating us. The same country is protecting us. The same light, water, the Earth+Sun or universe and air or space is providing enough resources to every country. Every part has a purpose and a blessing. Blessing for thorn is that no one tries to pluck it, so it is saved from the pain of being plucked from its very source!

As a human being we can understand it by serving people selflessly.

 

Purpose of life

Opinion below is as per my experience and little knowledge and belief. I beg my pardon before writing it for reason if anyone got hurt unintentionally too.

In Bangladesh and in West Bengal, India there are people who belong to wandering community that depends on livelihood by singing ‘Baul Songs’.This tradition, it seems, existed since last 500-1000 years but made famous and known to people, as per Osho, by Lalon Fakhir, of West Bengal.People are known as Boul people and their songs in local language give teachings to poor peoples, on which their livelihood depends, to live in harmony with nature and follow “Laws of nature”. They got fed by those poor people for singing these songs as they believe that through them their children got educated in right direction. Baul people accepts food happily not out of mercy but because they believe that nature provided food, space, air and water to everyone, in abundance. Some people, who make storage of them more than needed or for future needs, make it hard for others to get it their daily bread and butter. So by accepting their due from those people that are not at mercy.

All this just to understand the very fundamental thing that they made their songs based upon nature as the medium because it can be understood by even poor iliterate people too. That fundamental theme is that ever human being is basically in search of “Adhaar Manus” i. e. described as “The original face” by Lao Tzu, as followers of Zen and OSHO knows well.

Perhaps, Jesus has discovered his original face.The first inhalation by a face after separation from eternity, that is constant and eternal. This inhalation is after birth out of only virgin or unchanging or constant existence. Since it is constant and unchanging so even after giving birth its virginity remains unchanged.In Hinduism it is said as the full, whole, remains as full even when the whole has taken birth from it. This these Baul singers called as “Adhaar Manus”.

So as a human being the search ends with the exhalation of last breath in eternity i e Nirvana, by Buddhist. Moksha, by Hindus. Then one is free from the cycle of birth and death. But to know how to breath last in eternity or existence, one must experience i.e. see, as per Zen or Osho, or hear,as per Nanak-Nadari, the existence and the discover the first breath, i.e. Adhhar Manus, too.

Perhaps, as per OSHO, Jesus was first to describe God as within, self, and without, no-self, both. Before him Buddha discovered God as without ‘no-self‘ and Hindu believed God within as ‘self‘. For experiencing without Buddha has not given any practical method that can be followed by ordinary people. Later modified Buddhism i.e.  Zen developed a method they call as Witnessing in other words it can be described as ‘sitting silently, doing nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.

JESUS gave compassion and service as method for experiencing both at a time. When you serve with compassion you forgot your ‘self’ completely i e experiencing the ‘no-self’. By practicing it honestly any day one can encounter “Self” by seeing the existence or hearing the song of existence.

Earlier teachings stressed that one has to achieve one goal at least in this very life i.e. either find or discover your ‘Adhaar Manus’ i.e. Original Face or discover your ‘Self’ or existence through ‘no-self’ or directly. Then that person cannot be stopped for experiencing the second. This un-satisfaction is said to be good for humanity.
