The Zen koan, 'The
goose is out!' captures the whole absurdity of the human condition:
how, throughout our lives, we remain voluntarily ignorant of our true
nature. In this book, his last responses to disciples' questions before
going into silence for three and a half years, Osho penetrates the
prejudices and beliefs we have gathered as our protection against
the truth. .
'You have forgotten
the language of your being. I have come to recognize it I have
remembered myself. And since the day I remembered myself I have been
in a strange situation: I feel compassion for you, and deep down I
also giggle at you, because you are not really in trouble. You don't
really need compassion, you need hammering, you need to be hit hard
on the head. Your suffering is bogus. Ecstasy is your very nature.
You are truth. You are love. You are bliss. You are freedom.' Osho
'Osho has a no-mind
to his comments, sudden bursts of insight, novel ways of putting images
together so that you read in enchanted wonder. Any spiritual teacher
who has such bad publicity must be saying some wonderfully terrible
things. Tune in.'
