Osho is an enlightened mystic who has enriched the world with an immensely rich and profound vision of meditation and of how life can be lived now and in the future.
One of his most important contributions is to bring together ‘enjoying life to the full’ as Zorba the Greek did like no other and ‘going deep into our own being’, which Buddha has shared with the world. The western material and the eastern spiritual orientation come together in his vision for a new man: Zorba the Buddha.
This is what Osho himself said about how to use his vision:
“Always remember, whatsoever I say to you, you can take it in two ways. You can simply take it on my authority, ‘Because Osho says so, it must be true’ – then you will suffer, then you will not grow.
“Whatsoever I say, listen to it, try to understand it, implement it in your life, see how it works, and then come to your own conclusions. They may be the same, they may not be. They can never be exactly the same because you have a different personality, a unique being.
“Whatsoever I am saying is my own. It is bound to be in deep ways rooted in me. You may come to similar conclusions, but they cannot be exactly the same.
“So my conclusions should not be made your conclusions. You should try to understand me, you should try to learn, but you should not collect knowledge from me, you should not collect conclusions from me. Then your mind-body will grow.”
