"Look for Buddha outside your own mind,

and Buddha becomes the devil."


~ Zen Master Dogen ~

"Prayer is always addressed to somebody else.


Prayer is not religious.
Worship is not religious.
Being fully aware and silent is the only way of knowing the taste of religion."

~ Osho : Zen, The Quantum Leap From Mind To No Mind ~

Kaun si naitikta thi tumhare desh mein? Naahak shorgul machaye hue ho. Aur tum
buddhu bana lete ho pashchim ke logo ko kyunki unko tumhare itihaas ka koi pata
nahi hai. Isliye tumhare mahatmagan pashchim mein ja ke prachaar karte firte hain :
Bhaarat ki mahaan naitikta. Isse jyada anaitik koi desh duniya me kabhi nahi raha
hai!

Every meditation is a preparation for enjoying the aloneness which is our nature.

~ Osho : The Language Of Existence ~

"Masters come and go, disciples come and disappear;


Zen remains.
Just as it is.
It is always just as it is."
~ Osho : Live Zen ~

Mahatmas are either sadists or masochists -- avoid! Whenever you see a mahatma, RUN
as fast as you can before he puts some guilt in your mind.

WHATSOEVER YOU CAN BE, YOU ARE. There is no goal. And we are not going anywhere. We
are simply celebrating here. Existence is not a journey, it is a celebration. Think
of it as a celebration! as a delight, as a joy! Don't turn it into a suffering!
Don't turn it into a duty, a work -- let it be play!
This is what I mean by becoming religious: no guilt, no ego, no trip of any kind --
just being herenow... being with the trees and The birds and the rivers and the
mountains and the stars.

~ Osho : The Tantra Vision, Vol 1~

"If you want to travel the Way


of Buddhas and Zen masters,
then expect nothing,
seek nothing,
and grasp nothing."

~ Dogen Zenji ~
Truth cannot be believed; either you know or you don't know. If you know, there is
no question of belief; if you don't know, there is again no question of belief. If
you know, you know; if you don't know, you don't know. Belief is a projection of
the tricky mind -- it gives you the feeling of knowing, without knowing. The Hindu,
the Mohammedan, the Christian, the Jew, the Jaina, the Buddhist -- they all
believe.
To believe is cheap, it is very easy -- nothing is at stake. You can easily believe
in God, you can easily believe in immortality of the soul, you can easily believe
in the theory of reincarnation. In fact, they remain just superficial; deep down
you are not affected by them, not at all. When death will knock at your door you
will know your beliefs have all disappeared. The belief in the immortality of the
soul will not help you when death will knock at your door -- you will cry and weep
and you will cling to life. When death comes you will forget all about God; when
death comes you will not be able to remember the theory -- and the complicated
implications of it -- about reincarnation.
When death knocks you, it knocks down all the structure of knowledge that you had
built around yourself -- it leaves you absolutely empty... and with the awareness
that the whole life has been a wastage.
Wisdom is a totally different phenomenon: it is experience, not belief.
~ Osho : Dhammapada, The Way of The Buddha, Vol 3 ~

I gained nothing at all from Supreme Enlightenment, and for that very reason it is
called Supreme Enlightenment. Gautama Buddha

All the religions have exploited your hidden desires.

~ Osho : The Messiah, Vol 1 ~

I challenge all the religions of the world, all their shankaracharyas and their
imams and their popes and their rabbis, to come to a medical college and prove that
they are celibate. Only a medical examination can give you a certificate saying
whether you are celibate or not. You cannot be a celibate; it is such a stupid
thing.

~ Osho : Hari Om Tat Sat ~

Zen is like soap. First you wash with it, and then you wash off the soap.

~ Yamaoka Tesshu ~

Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing


is that important. Natalie Goldberg

Do you have the patience to wait


till the mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain without reaction
till the right action arises by itself?

~Lao Tzu
Tao Te Ching, Chapter 15
"Where sun and moon
cannot reach -
There
is a wonderful sight."
