The 99 Names of Nothingness
Talks given from 1/5/78 to 31/5/78, Darshan Diary, 27 Chapters, Year Published : 1979
The 99 Names of Nothingness Content : Khabira. It is a sufi name, a name of God. Literally it means: one who sees all, the cognizant one, the seer of all. And that is hidden in everybody -- the witness. What we see may be true, may not be true, but the seer is always true. The seen may be, may not be. In the night you see a dream, in the morning you find it was not true, but the one who saw the dream is still true. In the morning, in the night, all the time he is true. You see a rope and you think, in the darkness of the evening, that it is a snake. But when you come close you know that it is false, it is not so. But the seer was not false. Even in seeing something hallucinatory, the seer remains true; the seer is never false…
A Rose is a Rose is a Rose
Talks given from 28/6/76 to 27/7/76, Darshan Diary, 28 Chapters, Year Published : 1978
A Rose is a Rose is a Rose Content : [A sannyasin leaving for the West says: I feel deep gratitude for all that has happened to me since I've been here.] I know.... Much will be happening, much more, and gratitude prepares the way. Feel as grateful to existence as possible -- for small things, not only for great things... just for sheer breathing. We don't have any claim on existence, so whatsoever is given is a gift. If it is not given we don't have any court for appeal…
Above All Don't Wobble
Talks given from 16/1/76 to 12/2/76, Darshan Diary, 28 Chapters, Year Published : 1977
Above All Donapst Wobble Content : [A sannyasin says: I'm changing all the time... Since the group, I don't know... I don't like talking, I don't like laughing... I feel like crying... ] Whatsoever happens, accept and enjoy, and don't force anything. If you feel like talking, talk. If you feel like being silent, be silent -- just move with the feeling. Don't force in any way, not even for a single moment, because once you force anything you are divided in two -- and that creates the problem, then your whole life becomes split…
Be Realistic : Plan for a Miracle
Talks given from 13/3/76 to 6/4/76, Darshan Diary, 22 Chapters, Year Published: 1977
Be Realistic : Plan for a Miracle Content : [A sannyasin asks about his work in the West and his relationship:... it's crazy that I should ask you these things... I've got my own mind.] No, you ask... that is a way of making up your mind, mm? Now you are part of me and I am as much involved in you as you are -- even more. So don't think that you are crazy. Just tell me. Even telling me will be of much help. I cannot decide for you, but I can help you to decide. These two things... something else? There must be a third thing also…
Believing the Impossible Before Breakfast
Talks given from 1/2/78 to 28/2/78, Darshan Diary, 28 Chapters, Year Published: 1981
Believing the Impossible Before Breakfast Content : Just raise your hands, close your eyes, and feel utterly open. These hands are the gestures of openness. Feel receptive, because sannyas has to be received; you cannot take it, you can only receive it. It is a gift: you can allow it to happen. There is no need to grab it. The only need is to give way, to let it happen. Feel great energy showering on you, as if you are standing under a waterfall. Energy is splashing on you and the body starts swaying, the body starts feeling drunk. Go into it, and if something starts happening in the body, allow it…
Beloved of My Heart
Talks given from 3/5/76 to 28/5/76, Darshan Diary, 26 Chapters, Year Published: 1978
Beloved of My Heart Content : [A sannyasin mother says she is having problems in her relationship: I find myself being very bitchy and nagging sometimes. I feel I'm just asking for a fight all the time.] Mm mm, love always brings trouble -- and it has to be faced. Love cannot be always smooth, and it is good that it is not always smooth, otherwise you would not grow. Whenever there is a change, any sort of change, things will come into focus more clearly. When change disturbs you, all your inner disturbances are stirred. You are both feeling disturbed and both trying to throw the responsibility on the other. Just try to see it inside yourself. The other is never responsible. Remember that as a mantra: The other is never responsible...
Blessed Are the Ignorant
Talks given from 4/12/76 to 31/12/76, Darshan Diary, 25 Chapters, Year Published: 1979
Blessed Are the Ignorant Content : Deva means divine, and agyana means ignorance; divine ignorance. And this has to be understood. All knowledge is superfluous. Knowledge as such is superfluous. And all knowledge creates only an illusion that we know -- we don't know. You can live with a man your whole life, and you can think that you know him -- and you don't know him. You can give birth to a child, and you can think you know him -- and you don't know him…
The Buddha Disease
Talks given from 1/1/77 to 31/1/77, Darshan Diary, 31 Chapters, Year Published: 1979
The Buddha Disease Content : Buddha means one who is enlightened, and prem means love -- love for the enlightened one, or love for enlightenment. Buddha is not a person -- mm? it is a state of ultimate being. There have been many buddhas, and everybody is potentially a buddha. The word itself means tremendously awakened, absolutely alert... one whose consciousness has completely disappeared, who is just pure consciousness. You can look through and through and there is no darkness in it... not even lingering somewhere in the comers…
The Cypress in the Courtyard
Talks given from 29/5/76 to 27/6/76, Darshan Diary, 23 Chapters, Year Published : 1978
The Cypress in the Courtyard Content : [A sannyasin returning to the West, said that he was feeling 'okay' about himself.] Okay is not enough... feel blessed. Okay is not a very ecstatic word; it is just lukewarm. So feel blessed -- and it is a question of feeling. Whatsoever you feel, you become. It is your responsibility. If you are not feeling good, that's how you have created it in the past. If you feel miserable, it is your own work. That's what we mean in India when we say, 'It is your own karma.' 'Karma' means your own action. It is what you have done to yourself…
Dance Your Way to God
Talks given from 28/7/76 to 20/8/76, Darshan Diary, 24 Chapters, Year Published : 1978
Dance Your Way to God Content : [A sannyasin says: I'm not sure which direction to take -- whether to go out more to people or to go inside myself more. I'm not sure which is best for my growth. Osho checks his energy.] Good, come back. The energy is really good. You have to do both. Choosing won't be good. These are not alternatives -- whether one should go out, meet, mix with people, or should go in. Both are needed together. If you move towards one, you will become lopsided. So sometimes go out, mix with people, forget yourself. Then really go out…
