  Bliss: Living Beyond Happiness & Misery - Talks on the Shiva Sutras 



Everyone is searching for happiness, says Osho, but because they are looking in the wrong direction – outside – no one ever really finds it. Real happiness, bliss, can only be found inside. It can be reached by learning the “knack” of dis-identifying with the mind.

This book on the ancient wisdom of the Shiva Sutras explains how to do this.

These sutras will challenge and disturb people’s ideas about how life can be lived, but they also reveal how bliss is already hidden within the states we all experience daily: waking, dreaming and sleeping.

He shows how to dis-identify from the desires and attachments of the mind that trap everyone during this life, and pull them into the next. “The beginning of being human happens only when we get out of this vicious circle called mind.”

There is no flood in bliss. Bliss is a cool ray, a cool light, there is no flood in it. Bliss is, in a sense, something like sadness. Sadness is between happiness and misery; bliss is beyond both. Sadness is a state of darkness where everything is blunt, dull; sadness is a deathlike state where everything languishes in inertia. Bliss is a luminous state of awareness, but there is neither misery nor happiness there. In this sense bliss is like sadness, where there is no happiness or misery. There is light, but the light is not that of happiness because even the light of happiness has an intensity that makes you perspire.

This is why people also get tired of happiness. You cannot remain happy for long. It will tire you, because there is intensity in it, sharpness and fever in it. If you were to win the lottery every day you would die, you would not survive. It’s okay if you win it only once in a while, but if you win it every day the tension will be so great that you will not be able to sleep. Your heart will beat so fast that you will not be able to rest. The excitement will be so great that it will become your death. So happiness can only be taken in homeopathic doses. You will not be able to take an allopathic dose. It is given in very small doses – a lot of sorrow, a little bit of joy. Only that much is bearable because happiness is also tension; it has heat, excitement.

Misery is a tension, happiness is also a tension. There is excitement in both. Bliss is a non-excited state of mind; there is light there, but no heat. There is dance there, but no excitement. There is a silent, serene dance without any sound. This dance is in emptiness: it causes no fatigue, it is not of the body. Both happiness and misery belong to the body, but bliss belongs to your being; it is a different dance altogether.

  Song of Ecstasy



Talks on Adi Shankara's Bhaj Govindam

Osho begins the series with:
'The first and the basic sutra to be understood is that truth is attained in emptiness and is lost in words... Language is created by man. Truth is not created by man, it is a discovery.
It is neither to be created or proved, but only to be unveiled, Language is the veil. Thoughts are the only obstacle.'

  The Beloved Vol.1 and Vol.2




The Bauls sing: 'Nothing has happened, and nothing will happen. Scanning the cosmos you waste your hours. He is present in this little vessel. In this little body He has made his abode.' The whole search is withinwards. And on the waves of songs and on the waves of dancing, he moves withinwards.... And he lives very spontaneously, because the Baul says:

'If you want to reach to the adhur manush, the essential man, then the way goes through sahaj manush, the spontaneous man.' Osho

NEW War and Peace



Insights from the Bhagavad Gita

'A man of peace is not a pacifist, a man of peace is simply a pool of silence. He pulsates a new kind of energy into the world, he sings a new song. He lives in a totally new way -- his very way of life is that of grace, that of prayer, that of compassion.
Whomsoever he touches, he creates more love-energy.
The man of peace is creative. He is not against war, because to be against anything is to be at war. He is not against war, he simply understands why war exists. And out of that understanding he becomes peaceful.
Only when there are many people who are pools of peace, silence, understanding, will the war disappear. But withdrawal is not the way to attain peace. You say, PEACE OF MIND CAN BE GAINED BY WITHDRAWAL...
Never. Never has it been gained that way.'
Osho

NEW

Now available as Paperback: Inner War and Peace

 

'A person who himself is eager for war doesn’t care to see whether the opponent is eager to fight or not. A person who is eager for war is blind. He never looks at the enemy; he only projects the enemy. He doesn’t want to look at the enemy. In fact, whomsoever he meets is an enemy for him. He doesn’t need to see the enemy; he creates, he projects, the enemy.
When a battle is raging within, enemies appear on the outside.
' Osho
