"The mind is within you, but it is really a projection of the society inside you. It is not yours.
No child is born with a mind. He is born with a brain. The brain is the mechanism; the mind is the ideology. The brain is fed by the society, and every society creates a mind according to its own conditionings. That's why there are so many minds in the world.
The Hindu mind is certainly separate from the Christian mind, and the communist mind is certainly separate from the Buddhist mind. But a fallacy is created in the individual that the mind is yours, so the individual starts acting according to the society, following the society, but feeling as if he is functioning on his own.
This is a very cunning device." (Osho, ch.4 in this book, from Beyond Psychology ch.39 q.1)
Modern psychology all around the world is doing something stupid: analyzing the brain, analyzing all the thoughts which constitute your mind. In the East we have looked into the innermost parts of humanity and our understanding is, the mind needs no analysis. It is analyzing junk. It needs simply to be erased. The moment the mind is erased -- and the method is meditation -- you are left with a body which is absolutely beautiful, you are left with a silent brain with no noise. The moment the brain is freed from the mind, the innocence of the brain becomes aware of a new space which we have called the soul." (Osho, ch.14 in this book, from Om Mani Padme Hum ch.16, q.1)
