Ecstasy, the Forgotten Language



Osho speaks on the exuberant poems of Kabir, as translated by India’s Nobel Prize-winning poet, Rabindranath Tagore. He also responds to questions as diverse as the difference between relationship and aloneness, mind and society, self and enlightenment, and explains the difference between a crystallized self and a strong ego.

    Excerpt from Ecstasy, the Forgotten Language

    Chapter 1
    "I invite you to come with me into the innermost realm of this madman Kabir. Yes, he was a madman - all religious people are. Mad, because they don’t trust reason. Mad, because they love life. Mad, because they can dance and they can sing. Mad, because to them life is not a question, not a problem to be solved but a mystery into which one has to dissolve oneself.

    One thing more about Kabir’s approach. He is life-affirmative. That too is an indication of a real man of understanding. There are two types of people in the world: the people who indulge and the people who renounce. They Look opposite to each other but they are not. They are two aspects of the same coin. The people who indulge are continuously frustrated because no indulgence brings you to joy. You can indulge - you can waste your life, you can waste your opportunity, your energy - but no enjoyment ever comes out of indulgence. If indulgence could have given joy, then nobody would ever have renounced. People renounce because indulgence fails - but then they are moving to the other extreme. Thinking that indulgence has not helped, they move to the opposite. They become against life, they become anti-life, they become life-negative. They start destroying their being; they become suicidal. These are the two types of people you will find. In the market you will find the people who indulge, and in the monasteries you will find the people who renounce.

    Kabir belongs to neither. A real man of understanding is a great synthesis. He knows that it is not a question of indulgence or renunciation; it is a question of awareness. Be in the world, but be with awareness. Don’t go anywhere, don’t have antagonistic attitudes towards life. Kabir is tremendously life-affirmative. He loved, he had a wife, he had two children, and he lived the life of a householder…and yet was one of the greatest seers of the world. He lived in the world and remained untouched. That’s his beauty. He is a lotus flower."

      The Psychology of The Esoteric

    The Psychology of The esoteric
    Osho begins where Western psychology leaves off.
    Through this stunning series of discourses he takes the reader beyond Freud and Jung, beyond the Human Potential Movement, to the psychology of enlightenment, of buddhahood.
    In these talks Osho reveals his vision of a New Man – a man who embraces all aspects of his being – and the creation of a climate in which that new man can realize his ultimate potential.
    In response to questions from seekers, Osho covers a multitude of subjects: the nature of meditation; sex, love and prayer as the three essential steps to the divine; destiny; why Western youth is attracted to Eastern religion and philosophy; the significance of kundalini yoga; dream psychology; and the seven energy bodies.

    There are books that can transform you just by reading the first page. This is one of them.
