synopsis
This discourse consists of a Hindi part (published as Sadhana-Sutra (साधना-सूत्र)), followed by an English part (published as The New Alchemy: To Turn You On).
Reader of the sutras: n/a; sutras are being read by Osho himself.
After discourse Osho leads Tratak Meditation.
English part:
Sutra 1
Seek out the way.
... Pause and consider awhile. Is it the way you desire, or is it that there is a dim perspective in your visions of great heights to be scaled by yourself, of a great future for you to compass? Be warned. The way is to be sought for its own sake, not with regard to your feet that shall tread it.
Sutra 2
Seek the way by retreating within.
Sutra 3
Seek the way by advancing boldly without.
Sutra 4
... The whole nature of man must be used wisely by the one who desires to enter the way. Each man is to himself absolutely the way, the truth, and the light.... Seek it by the study of the laws of being, the laws of nature, the laws of the supernatural: and seek it by making the profound obeisance of the soul to the dim star that burns within. Steadily, as you watch and worship, its light will grow stronger. Then you may know you have found the beginning of the way. And when you have found the end, its light will suddenly become the infinite light.
... Be not appalled and terrified by the inner darkness; keep your eyes fixed on the small light and it will grow. But let the darkness within help you to understand the helplessness of those who have seen no light whose souls are in profound gloom.
