Zen: The Solitary Bird, Cuckoo of the Forest

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


In this series Osho takes us deeply into the mysteries of the inner world. He explains that the existence of the mind is peripheral and can only exist on the circumference of our consciousness. It is a fine instrument for outside inquiry, but inhibits the internal search. In those moments when we enter our being, it disappears. This is meditation.
