The White Lotus

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Bodhidharma, a disciple of Buddha, was the first patriarch of Zen. The notes collected by his disciples from Bodhidharma's discourses, contain the essential core of Buddha's message. Buddha and Bodhidharma are vastly different in their expression of truth. Osho sees Buddha as the silence of a breeze, Bodhidharma he likens to a storm. This discourse series alternates the eminently readable interchanges between Bodhidharma and his disciples, and Osho's response to questions from his own disciples and other seekers. In the words of one journalist: "Just by reading these discourses there is a risk you may be pulverized by their inspiration."
