Wake up call for all engaged in helping others!

It needs a very high level of intelligence which is not common like common sense that a person who has suffered a lot in his /her life is capable of directing his energy towards betterment of other people. Very few sensitive and sincere doctors, social activists and writers on word press are an example of it.

When they are working for others betterment there is a ray of hope for them too. That is to embark upon journey in search of the “self”, the one who suffered a lot and now engaged in others betterment.  It is within and constant this is true because whenever one looks behind one can remember oneself as a child, adult and now fully grown. Only with reference to a constant one can measure. Units of measurements are based on this principle. Still one finds this too that it is always with him/her even in dreams!

There is a story told by first Indian mystic “Ram Tirth”, who visited first time to USA.

A person was informed in his office about a news and hearing that he left his office immediately. Seriousness of the information can be experienced from changes in his face and sudden sweating of his forehead.

When he was just about to leave the exit door the postman handed over to him his much awaited lottery ticket worth a Million dollars, still he has received it and kept it in front pocket by folding carelessly and called a Cab so as to reach early nearest metro station.

When he was about to leave the Cab at station he saw a famous actress he wanted to meet at least once in his lifetime as he was a great fan of her acting, but this time he just passed a glimpse over her and left to Metro station to catch the train.

When he reach his home, firefighters were busy extinguishing the fire but still it is out of control and he checked all family members including parents are there standing outside except his 5 year old son.

He requested firefighters to save him at any cost and prayed to God to pay all the insurance amount from his house and lottery ticket to Government’s relief fund or other social services.

Here the question is that “Why he is himself not trying to bring back his child?”. When he is ready to lose everything for him then to whom he is saving? What is even more important to him than child, money and dreams etc?

It is the “self”.

Another question is that how much time of his life he has devoted to actually find that self?

Most people agree that we spent lot of our time in trying to fulfil our desires and raising our family, while we are ready put up on stake any moment when it comes to saving the “self”!

This search begins with asking question “Who am I?”

Its true answer can only be found by a person who is just born, because after that all that happens is part and parcel of conditioning by the society. That is why Jesus said that only those who are like a child can enter the kingdom of god.

Society or this conditioning is a necessary evil too and useful too. Useful because only a person out of jail can only understand meaning of freedom, while all those roaming around outside are also free, but the joy is missing. So to add joy to your life, this conditioning is necessary but since it is extremely difficult to come out of it naked and see your “Self” as it is, so it is an evil like drug addiction or bad habit.

Before embarking upon a journey in search of this self, some important characteristics of it are worth knowing.

First characteristics of it is invisible. Like God exists everywhere so it needs to be invisible because visibility will limit one to at one place. So is the self it exists in everyone. Only in human being it is available and accessible too.

In animals and tress experiments have proved that there is a faint feeling of self. In them it is available but not accessible. In future scientists may find it in dormant state in materials too.

Second characteristics of is that it is eternal like God because if God is present in one time on our planet then it is difficult to him/her to be available to people of other time or century.

Third characteristics of it is very important to understand. It is accessible to every human being in a very peculiar way. Same as design of our iris, used for identification purpose. Word “Propos” is formed due to this uniqueness and all words derived from it bear the same root meaning like Proposition, Purpose etc.

This peculiarity wrongly imposed on body is the basis of forming Ego.

All through our life we goes on enhancing our ego in a peculiar way but that becomes the very root of all pain, suffering and difficult time of our life. So to find “self” first of all one needs to peel, like peeling of onion, all the layers of ego one has deliberately placed one after another whole through the life.

Greatest obstacle is the knowledge one has gained and pain one has suffered i.e. past.

Those who are on the path of helping others have embarked upon this journey but still remembering it will hamper their journey. Only by dropping one’s past only one can move forward. So the one who is on the path of helping others, it is important to forget about all sufferings etc. Forget all sufferings and pains as it has never happened to you, because you are not body but “Self”, it is due to your mistake that you imposed it on your body, without actually knowing it or say in ignorance. Never ever even inform anyone about it to others.

Once this true “Self” is found you will come to know actually this is the case! It really never happened to your self but to body! All pain or suffering was due to this wrong interpretation of self in our body.

This is not abromal that due to one’s misunderstanding or imaginary perception the result are real. This happens when we take a rope as a snake and run or jump in fear. When we know that actually it was a rope the fear is gone and so is with its memory too.

A call of Sufi mystic

हुए नामवर … बेनिशां कैसे कैसे … ये ज़मीं खा गयी … नौजवान कैसे कैसे …
(और उनके िकये गये कामों को पत्थर पर उकेरने में लगे रहे जबकि उपनिषद पेड़ की छालों पर लिखे भी मौजूद थे जिन पर लिखने वाले ने अपने को सिर्फ माध्यम मानकर लिखा वे भी कोइ वृद्ध तो कोइ जवान थे बस अमर हो गये थे. फर्क इससे पड़ता है कि कौन लिख/बोल रहा है, किस अवस्था में और किस उद्देश्य से न कि किस पर या किस सुर ताल पर)
(बदलाव तभी संभव है जब यह आज समझ में आ जाए- क्योंकि गाने वाले सूफी फकिर कि यह पुकार है आज उसकी मौजूदगी में कुछ घट सकता है यह सुनकर )

आज जवानी पर इतरानेवाले कल

(कल कल करते करते कब मौत सामने खड़ी हो जायगी पता ही नहीं चलेगा जैसे अभी पीछे देखेगा तो पता चलेगा और कल का इस फकीर को भी पता नही)ं

पछतायेगा – ३
चढ़ता सूरज धीरे धीरे ढलता है ढल जायेगा – २ ढल जायेगा ढल जायेगा – २
(जैसे आज इतना सूरज तो चढ़ चुका है और पता ही नहीं चलेगा और यह ढलने लगेगा)

तू यहाँ मुसाफ़िर है ये सराये फ़ानी है चार रोज की मेहमां तेरी ज़िन्दगानी है
ये ज़र ज़मीं ज़ेवर कुछ ना साथ जायेगा
खाली हाथ आया है खाली हाथ जायेगा
जानकर भी अन्जाना बन रहा है दीवाने
अपनी उम्र ए फ़ानी पर तन रहा है दीवाने
किस कदर तू खोया है इस जहान के मेले मे
तु खुदा को भूला है फंसके इस झमेले मे
आज तक ये देखा है पानेवाले खोता है
ज़िन्दगी को जो समझा ज़िन्दगी पे हंसता है
मिटनेवाली दुनिया का ऐतबार करता है (और जो अमिट है उस पर तेरी नजर ही नहीं है)
क्या समझ के तू आखिर इससे प्यार करता है (मिटता हुआ देखकर भी क्यों तुझे तेरे, तेरी संपत्ती ताकत के न मिटने का भरोसा है)
अपनी अपनी फ़िक्रों (अपने बनाये संसार)में जो भी है वो उलझा है – २
ज़िन्दगी हक़ीकत में क्या है कौन समझा है – २
(अपने संसार से बाहर आए तब समझे,लेकिन उसमें वह कई रोल कर रहा है जिसमें वह महत्वपूर्ण रोल अदा कर रहा है, उसके बगैर वहां कुछ भी नहीं हो सकेगा, और जो कुछ समझे वह भी पूरा नहीं समझ सके)
आज समझले …
आज समझले कल ये मौका हाथ न तेरे आयेगा
ओ गफ़लत की नींद में सोनेवाले एक दिन धोखा खायेगा
चढ़ता सूरज धीरे धीरे ढलता है ढल जायेगा – २ ढल जायेगा ढल जायेगा – २

मौत ने ज़माने को ये समा दिखा डाला
कैसे कैसे रुस्तम को खाक में मिला डाला (यहां अहंकार पर चोंट)
याद रख सिकन्दर के हौसले तो आली थे
जब गया था दुनिया से दोनो हाथ खाली थे
अब ना वो हलाकू है और ना उसके साथी हैं
चंगजो न पोरस है और न उसके हाथी हैं
कल जो तनके चलते थे अपनी शान-ओ-शौकत पर
शम्मा तक नही जलती
आज उनकी तुरबत पर
अदना हो या आला हो सबको लौट जाना है – २
मुफ़्लिसों का कलन्दर का कब्र ही ठिकाना है – २
जैसी करनी … जैसी करनी वैसी भरनी आज किया कल पायेगा
(अपने को कर्ता माना तो बंधता जायगा और अपने को माध्यम माना तो मुक्त हो जाएगा)
सर को उठाकर चलनेवाले….
(अहंकार को सच मानने  वाले )
सर को उठाकर चलनेवाले एक दिन ठोकर खायेगा (जब अहं की मौत होगी)
चढ़ता सूरज धीरे धीरे ढलता है ढल जायेगा – २
ढल जायेगा ढल जायेगा – २

मौत सबको आनी है कौन इससे छूटा है
तू फ़ना नही होगा ये खयाल झूठा है
साँस टूटते ही सब रिश्ते टूट जायेंगे बाप माँ बहन बीवी बच्चे छूट जायेंगे
तेरे जितने हैं भाई वक्त का चलन देंगे (यहां मोह और माया पर वार)
छीनकर तेरी दौलत दो ही गज़ कफ़न देंगे
जिनको अपना कहता है कब ये तेरे साथी हैं
कब्र है तेरी मंज़िल और ये बराती हैं
ला के कब्र में तुझको मुरदा पाक डालेंगे
अपने हाथोंसे तेरे मुँह पे खाक डालेंगे
तेरी सारी उल्फ़त को खाक में मिला देंगे
तेरे चाहनेवाले कल तुझे भुला देंगे
इस लिये ये कहता हूँ खूब सोचले दिल में
क्यूँ फंसाये बैठा है जान अपनी मुश्किल में
(कल का क्या भरोसा है
आज बस संभल जायें)
कल से तु कर तौबा आज बस सम्भल जायें – २
दम का क्या भरोसा है जाने कब निकल जाये – २

मुट्ठी बाँध के आनेवाले …
मुट्ठी बाँध के आनेवाले हाथ पसारे जायेगा
धन दौलत जागीर से तूने क्या पाया क्या पायेगा
चढ़ता सूरज धीरे धीरे ढलता है ढल जायेगा

This door was intended only for you

First doorkeeper is Sense/body, second is Mind and third is ego in my opinion. Yes, the door is always open but by being in present and witnessing awareness we make ourselves receptive for his grace and it comes like Sunlight enters when doors are open.

Osho Stories

A doorkeeper stands on guard before the temple of the Law. To this doorkeeper there comes a man who begs for admittance to the Law, but the doorkeeper says that he cannot admit the man at the moment.

The man, on reflection, asks if he will be allowed then to enter later.

‘It is possible,’ answers the doorkeeper, ‘but not at this moment.’

Since the door stands open as usual, the man bends down to peer through the entrance.

The doorkeeper laughs and says, ‘If you are so strongly tempted, try to get in without my permission. But note that I am powerful and I am only the lowest doorkeeper. From hall to hall, keepers stand at every door, each one more powerful than the other. Even the third of these has an aspect that even I cannot bear to look at.’

The man is given a stool and permitted…

When enjoying a scene in forest becomes futile?

There are three levels of Consciousness. Sub-conscious state of Mind, Conscious mind and Super conscious state of mind. While we sleep i.e. When our Conscious mind rests then Sub conscious mind awakes and start watching dreams to fulfill our unfulfilled wishes. The watcher, the scene and the relation between these two drops immediately as soon as we awake, ie leaving state of Subconscious mind and entering conscious state of mind in the morning.

Same experience happens when a  person leaves Conscious state of mind, Physical or material world, and enters Super-Conscious state of mind or Experiences the Soul or Existence. This is called as ‘Nirvaana’ by Buddha or ‘Christ-Consciousness’ or knowing the “Turth” , that liberates- a person from dream state to awakened state, as per Jesus or “Kaivalya” by Mahavir etc.

Immediately the watcher, the scene and act of watching drops and one got awakened and only one remains. Due to this other there existed the relation between the two also. Krishnamurti said this state as “The observer is observed”.

In Hindi there is a morning song for waking up a child: “Utha jaag musaafir bhor bhayee, ab rain kahan jo sowat hai,jo jaagat hai so paawat hai, jo sowat hai vo khowat hai. Oh traveler now get up, in the sense of get awakened, because the Sun has risen and only the one who got awakened will be profited, by the gift of God to live as human being on this Earth, and remaining will be in loss, by loosing the rare opportunity. Here a kid is called as “Traveler” – to remind him that we have lived many lives each life as a journey towards the destination, but not reached the destination till date i.e. our soul, that is why you have taken again birth as a human being. After finding one’s soul i.e. destination, which one gets liberated from cycle of birth and death. Same as a person comes out of dream after waking up from sleep. Now again one cannot start from the point one’s dream ended. This profit will remain with you forever and no one can steal it from you. This is called as “Shubh-Laabh”. “Shubh” means that remains forever.” Laabh” whatever progress one has made in this spiritual direction will never diminish even after death of the body.

 A more relatable example can be :

When a person recognizes that he is lost in a forest then immediately his capacity to appreciate beauty or nature get lost, because now the priority is how to get out of it.

To a seeker, the world seemed as a Forest, as soon as he/she understood that we are all connected but he/she also came out of the forest immediately due to sudden enlightenment. Now all those with whom he lived and all that he possessed looks like a forest to him. I am just witness of this forest and these all are within me but they are not connected to me. This understanding of Forest as my people and my asset is bondage and that kept one living till date, and lit the hope to live further.

True potential of every human being.

Our galaxy is a small island in existence, probably, like Hawai or Fiji as compared to other galaxies of size of Russia. Our galaxy consists of two main branches and our Solar system was not allotted any seat on its main branches but at Orion Spur, a separate branch for lower class solar systems like ours! Yes it is only 1% of other nearest Sun! I do not want to talk about my country and at least our home. Osho/Buddha sitting in “Dhyan awastha” or in meditation posture with closed eyes, means Infinite radiating from him because he is one with it in that moment! It is nearest possible picture of infinite that an enlightened person can show you!!

Man is such a creature that in his last step is to again jump into the infinite, from where its journey originally begins and all these huge objects are far behind our journey say billion years behind, poor fellows they are as far as consciousness is concerned. A man has crossed whole of the ocean and faced all the turmoils but it seems that when he has to take last step towards final destination, he gets distracted by the worldly matters and most of them fall again in the Ocean. A person making hole in a boat may ruin life of many and a person plugging hole of that boat may save many. Buddha and Osho did that job of plugging the hole, and even after 2500 years many are getting enlightened following them.

If a person has eyes to see, then infinite can be seen, of which this whole existence is an island part only. Earlier it is said that an immoral or materialistically indulged person cannot even think of following the path to awaken the self consciousness. Osho proved the concept of “Zorba the Buddha” i.e. irrespective of what amount of energy one has spent in his/her life, one can begin from scratch and awaken the self consciousness just by living an ordinary life and performing duties by just being fully aware about the job at hand. No need to leave home or office even because one cannot leave this world.

When a human being is born it means infinite energy has materialized or manifested in form of human being. When a Buddha is sitting in “Nirvana” state he is just creating a situation for you, so that you can understand that he has reached from where his journey was begun i.e. infinite and always present state. When beginning is such and its end is same then all those in between are also having a seed of it at present also, just they are not aware of it. So energy that energy can flow in a human being, which is to say more than 1000 times the amount of water flowing from Niagara fall per second! Energy from which birth to a human being is possible is not a small amount at all. So whatever amount of time and energy is wasted is always much much less and can be recovered within a year or two. Provided the collected energy is not spent in many activities but by being fully aware in activities at present in hand and being totally involved in them physically as well as mentally.

Materialistically we are so poor that our home is infinitesimal and at level of consciousness we are strongest so as to become center of the infinite existence to be able to draw energy from it and release energy in it too. What is smartness then? Become strong materialistically and then pursue consciousness instead of career, in my opinion, so that this opportunity is not missed this time or in this birth.

Buddha’s teachings are enlightening people of even present generation at global level !

Out of many sage slash mystics who got enlightened and are able to reach the destination of every soul, only one The Buddha’s teachings are enlightening people of even present generation at global level.

Buddha gave method of experimentation with self, instead of plain information. This proved a breakthrough like invention of bicycle for commuting distances. Whether it is Buddha’s teachings or bicycle, all that can be done by the people is modification in it for use in particular situation or purpose, but the basic unit is still in practice by common people.

There exists two or three basic branches of Buddha’s disciple. Through Bodhidharma it entered China, still alive there, and is practiced as Zen in Japan even today. Another branch through Sarah, grandson of Buddha, entered Tibet and its one branch developed by Tilopa for using Forms as a means for enlightenment. Through forms Tantra, and its many variety, is still practiced all around world specially in western countries.

Osho said that even Jesus was influenced by this Tantra method but used Love instead as his message. He is of opinion that even Sufi’s also got their inspiration to treat God as “female lover” from it.

In this age of internet, which do not care about your country, colour, cast and creed, Osho’s effort of reading more than 0.5 Million books in his life and developing an understanding among his disciples that we are all basically one, is helping all global companies about cross-cultural interactions. Osho gave his commentary on nearly all possible religious texts and messages, in text or poem form, of various mystics. Over time this has passed to younger generations and through YouTube, Social Media and Internet even today’s generation is very well aware about his teachings.

His teachings are simple and can be applied while following any religion and performing our social responsibilities too.

Practice of witnessing awareness is one such method. It requires one to remain fully involved in any one routine task. Whether bathing or brushing or anythin which requires only one or two minutes. Just remain fully available to that task, without thinking anything about past or future in those moments and experience every movement of soap or brush. Just remain fully present and totally involved in that activity.

Allow it to slowly slowly spread over all of your activities, even during sex i.e Tantra mediatation’s lower or substitute form, from there one may experience it one day alone too. This experience is called Mahamudra, by Tilopa, which is merging with existence by loosing self only experiencing remains, neither the experience nor the experiencer.

Osho on Ishavasya Upanishad

A 7 day camp at Mount abu, Rajashtan, India was organized along with practical meditation camp, so that his disciples get enlightened in this very camp. A few of them continued with him for about 20 years after this camp (as per my information) specially Taru. So a reader may practice his teachings at home while reading this book to get most out of it.
Even a beginner in spirituality of any Country or Religion may get greatly benefited with little intelligence to use his teachings according to his custom/religion.
Whenever a male sperm enters into female egg, the egg gets fertilized or when the movement of pollen from the anthers to the stigma it results in seed production after it is set. There enters the soul so as to enable them to multiply to form a body and grow, Generally speaking it is common for all living organisms that the soul enters to ensure proper growth of the cells as per the meeting parts. All these senses are later formed. This is why the soul is beyond these senses, even in case of human being!

It is said in this Upanishad that this soul itself reveals to a human being, if one remains receptive to it. This is just like movement of cloud towards low pressure zone in sky. Our love, prayer, service etc helps us just as a tool to create that low pressure zone and our wishes gets fulfilled. Only when a person wholeheartedly putting everything at risk make effort to seek one’s soul then it reveals itself and then only that person is called a Mystic or a Sage etc. It is prime duty of every person who is born as a human being.

Human life consists of two parts one the body, action part, and the other the soul, feeling part. Like in Aesops fable, a blind and a limping person so as to escape the fire in forest, it is combination which saved them. Osho said that it is possible that due to emergency situation they both interacted very fast and due to which when they come out of that fire the blind may have been believing that he is seeing and the limping person may be believing that he is running.

Such is the situation in our life, the fire, or in adolescent age, the fire, and we started feeling as if death of our body is death of our soul and the soul started feeling that it is body. The soul will remain after the death of body and leave our body as indifferently as it entered into it in fermented cell of the embryo.

Indian sages said that by understanding soul one will get experience of true Love, it will never be eclipsed by hate forever and this leads to bliss. It requires no other person even to be in love with this self. It is due to the absence of such true love that we find so much hate and love running together in our life. Since such love and hate are like two extreme positions of a swinging pendulum and true love is neutral position at center. When we pass through this center position our speed is so much that we cannot feel it. Sometimes in our “Aha” moments we feel it but we fail to extend those moments any longer because we have wasted our energy in being busy with touching the extremes of love and hate.

This central position is Ecstacy, one may call it self love or eternal love or universal love. It does not require the other to remain in it. It is birthright of every human being to embark upon this journey. Just a few minutes of practice while carrying out our daily responsibilities is sufficient to keep the lamp lit. Then whenever one gets time to dedicate full time, the lamp being already lit, is of great help.
