OSHO

osho_river“My whole effort is somehow to convince you – not with my words but with my silence and presence, with my love and with my joy – that you are at the very center of the universe, every one of you – be-cause there is only one center. Only on the periphery are we separate; at the center we are one.” ”I am for man’s spiritual growth, but I under-stand spiritual growth in its whole context. It is not something separate, one dimensional; it is a multi–dimensional phenomenon. It needs a revolution in society. It needs a revolution in society’s economic, political structures; it needs a tremendous and radical change in everything that has been dominating us up to now.

We have to create a discontinuity with the past.
Only then a new man – a really spiritual man, a man of cosmic dimensions – can be born.
I am certainly blessed because I am the first who is opposed by all. This situation has never happened before, and will never happen again. And you are also blessed because you are fellow travelers with a man who is not just an old dead saint, a goody–goody. I want you to be the very salt of the earth. Too many goody–goody saints have created so much diabetes. We need a different kind of saintliness. I have called that different kind of saint Zorba the Buddha.”

“My effort is to leave you alone with meditation, with no mediator between you and existence.”

“…The most dangerous man since Jesus Christ… He’s saying the same things that nobody else has the courage to say. A man who has all kinds of ideas, they’re not only inflammatory – they also have a resonance of truth that scares the pants off the control freaks.”Yehudi Menuhin
“I am not nor have ever been a disciple of Osho, but I’ve read enough of his brilliant books to be convinced that he was the greatest spiritual teacher of the 20th century …He understood us better than we understand ourselves.”Tom Robbins

“Osho is one of the most remarkable orators I have ever heard, though there is no hint of demagogy in his style, and no oratory or pedagogic feeling about the content of what he says.” (on Osho’s book: From Medication to Meditation)
“I read all his books”HH Dalai Lama
