An authentically religious man is an individual.
He is alone, and in his aloneness there is great beauty, great splendor.
I teach you that aloneness.
I teach you the beauty, and the grandeur, and the fragrance of aloneness.
In your aloneness you will reach to the heights of Everest.
In your aloneness you will be able to touch the farthest star.
In your aloneness you will blossom to your total potential.

Never become a believer,
never become a follower,
never become a part of any organization,
never become a part of any religion,
never become a part of any nation.
Remain authentically true to yourself.

Don't betray yourself.

Bodhidharma: The Greatest Zen Master, #10

Osho - Otoons


I am one with all things
- in beauty, in ugliness, for whatsoever is
- there I am.
Not only in virtue but in sin too I am a partner,
and not only heaven but hell too is mine.
Buddha, Jesus, Lao Tzu - it is easy to be their heir,
but Ghengis, Taimur, and Hitler?
They are also within me!
No, not half - I am the whole of mankind!
Whatsoever is man's is mine
- flowers and thorns, darkness as well as light,
and if nectar is mine, whose is poison?
Nectar and poison - both are mine.

Whoever experiences this I call religious,
for only the anguish of such experience
can revolutionize life on earth.
