Who Am I
- Osho, Ch. 1.:
- "There are only two alternatives: escape from the self or awakening in the self. There must be an external object for escape; and for awakening there must be a disillusionment about the utility of external attractions.
- As long as God is external, it is mundane; it is an illusion; it is a hallucination. Man has invented Him to find an escape from the self and to run away from it.
- Friend, the first thing, therefore, which I have to say is that we need not investigate God, Truth, Liberation, or Emancipation. Let us investigate the investigator himself."
- translated from
- Hindi: Main Kaun Hun? (मैं कौन हूं?) (writings) by Dr. Dayanand Bhargava
