Your action out of consciousness is moral, out of unconsciousness is immoral … it may be the same action. It's a beautiful introduction to a world where each individual has the capacity for an instant and profound understanding of existence and a rebirth of the trust in life that each of us is born with. One can pretend, can try hard, but everything will remain superficial and skin-deep. That is the only proof that his vision is not a dream. Everybody is tense, because whatever you are doing there is a conflict about whether it is right or wrong.
He would be cleaning the path in the garden, and suddenly a hit would come. In 1985, in the wake of a series of serious crimes by his followers, including a mass food poisoning attack with Salmonella bacteria and an aborted assassination plot to murder U.

It will show you the way to become more than the body and the way to bloom - how not to remain a seed but to become a golden flower.
And the sutra that begins this series of discourses, he says, contains the very essence of the entire Upanishadic vision - that the universe is an indivisible totality, an organic whole. Rebellion is not against something, but for something. Zen stories serve as starting points for several talks in the series, illuminating the nature of that rare human capacity to transcend the limits of the rational mind. Here Osho encourages readers to ask questions that are immediate and existentially significant — not borrowed or intellectual questions, but questions with an existential significance. How can you be compassionate if you do not know the source of love within yourself? And in this consciousness, whatsoever you do becomes a blessing.
He was later deported from the United States in accordance with an Alford plea bargain. In 1974 Rajneesh relocated to Pune, where an ashram was established and a variety of therapies, incorporating methods first developed by the Human Potential Movement, were offered to a growing Western following. When life is lived consciously and totally, death is not a catastrophe but a joyous climax. The question of morality is immensely significant, because morality is not that which has been told to you for centuries. Osho also answers questions, speaking on emotions and being detached from them, aloneness and love, imitation, children and religion, rebellion, living in a balanced way, sex, the generation gap, and much more. I cannot see any connection at all between morality and swordsmanship. Why can't we just live happily and be content? The second lesson is that you will be cleaning the floors, cleaning in the garden, collecting the old leaves, throwing them out.

They have been teaching in different ways, but the basic foundation is the same: unless you become moral, ethical, you cannot become religious. This series of talks supports a radical questioning of traditional belief systems in religious, political, and social dimensions. Osho convincingly makes the case that the stories of Jesus' life were never meant to be a factual record of history but rather are teaching parables. And about the second lesson I should make you aware.
His often provocative and challenging teachings generate today more and more interest, years after his death in 1990; and his readership is dramatically expanding around the world in more than fifty languages. This whole concept is upside down. Everything is on the table - belief in God, the meaning of compassion, what happens when we die. Even before the old man had approached him, he would jump out of his way. Here Osho encourages readers to ask questions that are immediate and existentially significant not borrowed or intellectual questions, but questions with an existential significance. The path of love, as described by Osho and though the songs of Kabir, is a journey that seeks out and celebrates the divine that is hidden in the ordinary, the love that becomes not just a feeling one has but ultimately a state of being that one is.
All that you can do in the name of morality is to become a hypocrite, a pretender. Dang Dang Doko Dang represents the sound of the drum beaten by a Zen master in an existential lesson for a disciple. Your first lesson is finished today, because for twenty-four hours I have been trying to hit you, but you have been always alert and saved yourself. But this has not happened; what has happened is a psychologically sick humanity. Here Osho encourages readers to ask questions that are immediate and existentially significant -- not borrowed or intellectual questions, but questions with an existential significance.

Almost immediately the movement ran into conflict with county residents and the state government, and a succession of legal battles concerning the ashram's construction and continued development curtailed its success. Rajneesh born Chandra Mohan Jain, 11 December 1931 — 19 January 1990 and latter rebranded as Osho was leader of the Rajneesh movement. The very idea brings a repressed human being.
