Talk #5 of the Series, The Book of Wisdom

"Meditation is the source, compassion is the overflow of that source. The non-meditative man has no energy for love, for compassion, for celebration. The non-meditative person is disconnected from his own source of energy; he is not in contact with the ocean. He has a little bit of energy that is created by food, by air, by matter – he lives on physical energy.

"Physical energy has limitations. It is born at a certain moment in time, and it dies at another moment in time. Between birth and death it exists. It is like a lamp that burns because of the oil in it – once the oil is exhausted, the flame goes out.

"The meditative person comes to know something of the infinite, becomes bridged with the inexhaustible source of energy."

Osho continues:
"His flame goes on and on, his flame knows no cessation. It cannot disappear, because in the first place it never appears. It cannot die, because it is unborn.

"How to bridge oneself with this inexhaustible source of life, abundance, richness? You can call that inexhaustible source existence, or you can call it truth or anything that you wish to call it. But one thing is absolutely certain: that man is a wave of something infinite.

"If the wave looks inward it will find the infinite. If it goes on looking outwards it remains disconnected – disconnected from its own kingdom, disconnected from its own nature. Jesus calls this nature the kingdom of God. He again and again says, 'The kingdom of God is within you. Go within.'

"Meditation is nothing but a bridge to go within. Once meditation has happened, the only thing that remains to happen is compassion.

"Buddha, the original master in Atisha's line, said that unless compassion happens, don't remain contented with meditation itself. You have gone only halfway, you have yet to go a little further. Meditation, if it is true, is bound to overflow into compassion. Just as when a lamp is lit it immediately starts radiating light, it immediately starts dispersing darkness; once the inner light is lit, compassion is its radiation.

"Compassion is the proof that meditation has happened. Love is the fragrance that proves that the one-thousand-petaled lotus in the innermost core of your being has bloomed, that the spring has come – that you are no longer the same person you used to be, that that personality has ceased and individuality is born, that you are not living any more in darkness, that you are light.

"These sutras are practical instructions, remember it. Atisha is not a philosopher, no wise man ever is. He is not a thinker; thinking is only for the mediocre, the foolish. The wise does not think, the wise knows. Thinking is an effort to know; it is guesswork, groping in the dark, shooting arrows in the dark.

"Wisdom is knowing. And when you know, you need not guess. You are not guessing that this is morning and the birds are singing and the trees are bathed in sunlight."
