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.

„Buddha declared before his death that he would be coming again after twenty-five centuries, and that his name would be Maitreya. Maitreya means the friend.“

—  Rajneesh

The Last Testament : Interviews with the World Press (1986)
Contexto: Buddha declared before his death that he would be coming again after twenty-five centuries, and that his name would be Maitreya. Maitreya means the friend. Buddhas don't come back; no enlightened person ever comes back, so it is just a way of saying... What he was saying is of tremendous importance. It has nothing to do with his coming back; he cannot come back. What he meant was that the ancient relationship between the Master and the disciple would become irrelevant in twenty-five centuries. It was his clarity of perception — he was not predicting anything — just his clarity to see that as things are changing, as they have changed in the past and as they go on changing, it would take at least twenty-five centuries for the Master and disciple relationship to become out of date. Then the enlightened Master will be only the friend. I had always wanted not to be a Master to anybody. But people want a Master, they want to be disciples; hence, I played the role. It is time that I should say to you that now many of you are ready to accept me as the friend. Those who are in tune with me continuously, without any break, are the only real friends...
