The Original Man

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


What's so original about the original man? Only that on finding him within yourself, according to Osho you find everything worth discovering. But he exhorts his audience not to take his word for it but experience it for themselves. Osho traces Zen from its beginnings with Bodhidarma in China through a succession of masters and poets. Seemingly absurd Zen statements and devices are all shown as techniques used in specific situations with different types of seekers to jolt them out of spiritual sleep. These discourses based on anecdotes about masters and their disciples aren't about Zen, they are it.
