Message from the Master:
You have to watch the mind; you have to watch the presence of mind as much as absence of mind. You have to watch both; you have to go beyond both. It comes, it certainly comes, and when it comes it takes all that is your misery, your ego, your insensitivity, your cruelty, says Osho, the Zen master.

Main Story
Real religion says God has to be addressed in a personal way. You have to provoke him and you have to allow him to provoke you and you have to come to terms with him; in fact, you have to struggle with him, you have to clash against him. You have to love him, and you have to hate him; you have to be a friend and you have to be an enemy; you have to make your experience of God a living experience.
 
Osho Publication
Born in Kuchwara, in the state of Madhya Pradesh, on 11th December 1931, Osho was known as Rajneesh Chandra Mohan in his childhood. Stories of His early years describe Him as independent and rebellious child, questioning all social, religious and philosophical beliefs. In 1953, Osho became enlightened at the age of twenty-one, while majoring in philosophy at D.N. Jain college in Jabalpur.
 
OSHO SPEAKS
Faith means a confidence, a respect for oneself. Belief is other-oriented : faith is self-oriented. Trust means "I know," not "I believe."
We are part of existence, we are not separate. Even if we want to be separate, we cannot be. Our life is part of being together with existence. And the more you are together with existence, the more alive you are. That's why I insist continually to live totally, to live intensely, because the deeper your living is, the more you are in contact with existence.
Doubt is closing the door; trust is opening the door. When you open the door, all the alternatives become possible. Friend may enter, foe may enter. Wind will come; it will bring the perfume of the flowers; it will also bring the germs of diseases. Now everything is possible -- the good and bad. Love will come; hate will also come. Now God can come, devil can also come This is the fear that something may go wrong, so close the door.
Buddha was talking to a very ancient people, to people who were very well acquainted with higher reaches -- even they were not able to understand. Jesus had to use language which could be understood. And Jesus was a carpenter's son; he himself knew the language of the ordinary people. Buddha came from a royal family, a son of a king -- very sophisticated -- knew all about philosophy and was fed up with it; knew all about beautiful parables, stories, mythologies, and was finished with all that. He had seen through them that they keep people occupied but they don't transform them.
 
IN FOCUS
Since long, human society is being managed on two approaches seemingly at odds with each other - one identified as "scientific" and the other as "spiritual". In the classical sense, the former tends to deny the spiritual reality, and the latter finds science inadequate in addressing significant questions of life. These contradictory perceptions show that something is basically wrong in understanding the overall dynamics of human evolution. It shows we are missing a tremendously important quality that can transform this dichotomized view into a holistic vision -- the quality of Trust.
_ By Swami Satya Vedant
 
ARTICLE
Physically we live on a very insecure planet, in a very anxious society. At any given time, natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis happen within the blink of an eye and tens of thousands of people might perish. Wars are raging in various countries as we speak, and in spite of medical science working hard on finding cures, new and old diseases are spreading. And then there lurks the greatest fear of all, the fear of death.
_ By Ma Anand Bhagwati
 
BOOK INTRO
There are very few of us who still conceive of God as an old bearded figure in the heavens, watching and controlling everything like a celestial puppeteer. This seems to be for children or for fundamentalist believers of different religions.And yet, as sophisticated as we thing we are, we are still carrying remnants of this perfect, eternal authority...
 
LAUGHTER
Laughter is in some way unique; when you laugh, you are also total in it. A laughter which is not total will be phony, a pretension, just a performance. So when you laugh, you also laugh totally. That is the only act you do totally -- so you know that laughter is total.
