The Miracle (discourses)

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


In this unique world of Zen, masters with strange sounding names and even stranger behavior ask disciples odd questions and then hit them - whether their answers are right or wrong! Osho deciphers the great game Zen masters play with their disciples and elucidates the central message of Zen - "nothingness." He also talks on the difference between students and disciples, the role of a spiritual master, and how the energy field of an enlightened being can affect the whole world.

    "I had to ask Anando to research whether somebody's heart feelings would be hurt if we inaugurate the Museum of the Ancient Dead Gods with a pig. Avirbhava is going to be the Director General."

    "Religion has been reduced to such nonsense. And the harm is that people become involved in these absolutely absurd ideas and forget completely about themselves. The only religion is the religion of being conscious."
