Publicidade

Rajneesh Chandra Mohan Jain , foi líder religioso de uma seita de tradições dármicas, mestre na arte da meditação e do despertar da consciência. Apesar de sua formação e docência acadêmica em filosofia, além de ter sido campeão em debates, ele não se considerava um filósofo, mas sim um místico, pois seu principal propósito era o desenvolvimento da consciência, o autoconhecimento, através da meditação. Durante a década de 1970, foi conhecido pelo nome de Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh e, mais tarde, como Osho.

Foi durante toda a sua vida uma figura extremamente polêmica, em boa parte, porque ele próprio raramente procurava apaziguar ou evitar conflitos. Nunca foi um moralista, enfatizando sempre a consciência individual e a responsabilidade de cada um por si mesmo. Não considerava o ato sexual como um tabu, tendo uma postura bastante liberal a esse respeito. Durante sua vida, foi perseguido em diversos países onde esteve, inclusive em sua terra natal.

Citações Rajneesh

„It is not decided by votes what is true; otherwise we could never come to any truth, ever.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: It is not decided by votes what is true; otherwise we could never come to any truth, ever. People will vote for what is comfortable — and lies are very comfortable because you don't have to do anything about them, you just have to believe. Truth needs great effort, discovery, risk, and it needs you to walk alone on a path that nobody has traveled before. Your Answers Questioned (2003)

„Whenever I meet prostitutes, they never speak of sex. They inquire about the soul, and about God. I also meet many ascetics and monks, and whenever we are alone they ask about nothing but sex.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: Whenever I meet prostitutes, they never speak of sex. They inquire about the soul, and about God. I also meet many ascetics and monks, and whenever we are alone they ask about nothing but sex. I was surprised to learn that ascetics, who are always preaching against sex, seem to be captivated by it. They are curious about it and disturbed by it; they have this mental complex about it, yet they sermonize about religion and about the animal instincts in man. And sex is so natural. From Sex to Superconsciousness

„One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen. You cannot do it every morning for a few minutes or for half an hour and then forget all about it. It has to become like your heartbeat. You have to sit in it, you have to walk in it. Yes, you have even to sleep in it. Walking in Zen, Sitting in Zen (1982)

„When you are desireless, you are liberated.“

—  Rajneesh
Tantra: the Supreme Understanding (1984), Context: Liberation cannot be desired because desire is the bondage. When you are desireless, you are liberated.

„No, explanation is not needed — only exclamation, a wondering heart, awakened, surprised, feeling the mystery of life each moment. Then, and only then, you know what truth is. And truth liberates.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: Tao mystics never talk about God, reincarnation, heaven, hell. No, they don't talk about these things. These are all creations of human mind: explanations for something which can never be explained, explanations for the mystery. In fact, all explanations are against God because explanation de-mystifies existence. Existence is a mystery, and one should accept it as a mystery and not pretend to have any explanation. No, explanation is not needed — only exclamation, a wondering heart, awakened, surprised, feeling the mystery of life each moment. Then, and only then, you know what truth is. And truth liberates. Never Born, Never Died (2002)

„You are filled too much. There is no room, no space for God to enter in you. You are too crowded. A thousand I's milling inside — they don't leave any space for anything to enter in you.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: Just a few days ago a man came to see me and he said, "I am a humble man. I am just like the dust on your feet. I have been trying for almost twenty years to achieve higher consciousness, but I have been a failure. Why can't I attain?" And on and on he went. Every sentence started with I. If the grammar allowed, every sentence would have ended with I. And if everything was allowed, every sentence would have consisted only of I's. "I etcetera, I etcetera, I etcetera," it went on and on. You are filled too much. There is no room, no space for God to enter in you. You are too crowded. A thousand I's milling inside — they don't leave any space for anything to enter in you. Just Like That: Talks on Sufism (1993)

„My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily, if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life. Come, Come, Yet Again Come

„Any mundane activity can become meditative. Digging a hole in the garden, planting new roses in the garden — you can do it with such tremendous love and compassion, you can do it with the hands of a buddha.“

—  Rajneesh
Context: Any mundane activity can become meditative. Digging a hole in the garden, planting new roses in the garden — you can do it with such tremendous love and compassion, you can do it with the hands of a buddha. There is no contradiction … I say unto you, your every act should be a ceremony. If you can bring your consciousness, your awareness, your intelligence to the act, if you can be spontaneous, then there is no need for any other religion: life itself will be the religion. Hyakujo: The Everest of Zen
