Rajneesh

Data de nascimento: 11. Dezembro 1931
Data de falecimento: 19. Janeiro 1990
Outros nomes: Ошо (Бхагван Шри Раджниш), Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

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.

„I would like that what I am doing is not lost. So I am trying in every possible way to drop all those things which in the past have been barriers for the revolution to continue and grow.“

—  Rajneesh

The Last Testament : Interviews with the World Press (1986)
Contexto: I would like that what I am doing is not lost. So I am trying in every possible way to drop all those things which in the past have been barriers for the revolution to continue and grow. I don't want anybody to stand between the individual and existence. No prayer, no priest... you alone are enough to face the sunrise, you don't need somebody to interpret for you what a beautiful sunrise it is... And this is my attitude: you are here, every individual is here, the whole existence is available. All that you need is just to be silent and listen to existence. There is no need of any religion, there is no need of any God, there is no need of any priesthood, there is no need of any organization. I trust in the individual categorically. Nobody up to now has trusted in the individual in such a way.

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

—  Rajneesh

Your Answers Questioned (2003)
Contexto: 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.

„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

From Sex to Superconsciousness
Contexto: 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.

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

—  Rajneesh

Walking in Zen, Sitting in Zen (1982)
Contexto: 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.

„If there is any truth in what I am saying, it will survive.“

—  Rajneesh

Italian TV Interview (1989)
Contexto: I believe and trust absolutely in existence. If there is any truth in what I am saying, it will survive. The people who remain interested in my work will be simply carrying the torch, but not imposing anything on anyone, either by sword or bread. I will remain a source of inspiration to my people and that is what most sannyasins will feel. I want them to grow on their own. Qualities like love, around which no church can be created, like awareness, qualities which are nobody's monopoly, like celebration, rejoicing, and maintaining childlike fresh eyes. I want people to know themselves, not to be according to someone else, and the way is in.

„You must have heard about the beautiful Sufi legend of Majnu and Laila.“

—  Rajneesh

Sufis, The People of the Path, Vol. 1
Contexto: You must have heard about the beautiful Sufi legend of Majnu and Laila. It is not an ordinary love story. The word majnu means mad, mad for God. And laila is the symbol of God. Sufis think of God as the beloved; laila means the beloved. Everybody is a Majnu, and God is the beloved. And one has to open one’s heart, the eye of the heart.

„A weak ego cannot be dissolved.“

—  Rajneesh

My Way: The Way of the White Clouds (1995)
Contexto: Only a ripe fruit falls to the ground. Ripeness is all. An unripe ego cannot be thrown, cannot be destroyed. And if you struggle with an unripe ego to destroy and dissolve it, the whole effort is going to be a failure. Rather than destroying it, you will find it more strengthened in new subtle ways. This is something basic to be understood: the ego must come to a peak, it must be strong, it must have attained an integrity — only then can you dissolve it. A weak ego cannot be dissolved.

„Remain in wonder if you want mysteries to open up for you.“

—  Rajneesh

The Book of Wisdom
Contexto: Remain in wonder if you want mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning. Questioners sooner or later end up in a library. They end up with scriptures, because scriptures are full of answers. And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder.

„The longer a person has been dead the greater is the tradition … If Buddha is alive you can barely tolerate him.“

—  Rajneesh

When the Shoe Fits
Contexto: The longer a person has been dead the greater is the tradition … If Buddha is alive you can barely tolerate him. … You cannot believe this man has known the ultimate because he looks just like you … Hungry he needs food, sleepy he wants a bed, ill, he has to rest — just like you … That is why Jesus is worshipped now and yet he was crucified when he was alive. Alive, you crucify him; dead, you worship him.

„I have withdrawn the red dress, the mala“

—  Rajneesh

The Last Testament, Vol. 3
Contexto: I have withdrawn the red dress, the mala, because thousands of people wanted to be sannyasins but just because of the clothes and the mala they felt difficulties in the world — their job, their family, their wife, their parents, their friends — and it was too much of a trouble. I have withdrawn everything. Now whatsoever remains is something inner which neither the wife can detect nor the father nor the job nor the friends.

„Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels.“

—  Rajneesh

Sat Chit Anand
Contexto: Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels. And when love comes, there is no question of responsibility. You do things because you enjoy doing them for the person you love. You are not obliging the person, you are not even wanting anything in return, not even gratitude. On the contrary, you are grateful that the person has allowed you to do something for him. It was your joy, sheer joy. Love knows nothing of responsibility. It does many things, it is very creative; it shares all that it has, but it is not a responsibility, remember. Responsibility is an ugly word in comparison to love. Love is natural. Responsibility is created by the cunning priests, politicians who want to dominate you in the name of God, in the name of the nation, in the name of family, in the name of religion -- any fiction will do. But they don't talk about love. On the contrary, they are all against love, because love is unable to be controlled by them. A man of love acts out of his own heart, not according to any moral code. A man of love will not join the army because it is his responsibility to fight for his nation. A man of love will say there are no nations, and there is no question of any fight.

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

—  Rajneesh

Come, Come, Yet Again Come
Contexto: 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.
