Freedom Is To Know That Which Is

Talk #1 of the Series, Dang Dang Doko Dang

"Truth is one, but it can be approached in many ways. Truth is one, but it can be expressed in many ways. Two ways are very essential; all the ways can be divided into two categories. It will be good to understand that basic polarity. Either you approach truth through the mind or you approach truth through the heart. So there are two types of religions in the world – both true, both meaningful, but both opposite to each other – the religion of the mind and the religion of the heart.

"The religion of the mind believes that if you become thoughtless, if the mind is dropped, you attain to truth. The mind is the barrier; the no-mind will be the gate. Buddhism, Jainism, Taoism – these are the religions of the mind."

Osho continues:
"They are religions of deep analysis, religions of deep awareness, religions of enlightenment.

"Then there are religions of the heart: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism. They believe that the path goes through the heart, that the heart has to be dissolved into the beloved, into the divine.

"The first religions are the religions of meditation. The word meditation is not exactly right but there is no other word to translate dhyana into English, because the language has never known a religion of meditation so the word does not exist. All Western languages, in fact, have known only the religion of the heart so they have the perfect word for that path – prayer. But for dhyana they don't have any word so meditation is the only word that can be used. In fact, dhyana means exactly the opposite; dhyana means just the contrary. The word meditation comes from a Greek root medonai which means to think about. The word meditation means to think about, and dhyana, which we are translating as meditation, means how not to think about; how to be in a state of no thought; how to come to a point where you are but there is no thinking; a state of no-mind, pure awareness. But meditation is the only word, so we will use it.

"Zen is the culmination of the Buddhist search. Zen is the uttermost flowering of the path of meditation. The word zen comes from dhyana. Dhyana became ch'an in China, then ch'an became zen in Japan. Remember this: Zen originated in India with Gautam Buddha. When Gautam Buddha attained to his ultimate enlightenment, the state of no-mind, the world came to know the path of analysis, the path of right thinking, the path of right remembering, and the path of how to dissolve all thinking by becoming more and more aware of thoughts. Just by watching thoughts, slowly, slowly, they fade out – you become simply a watcher, you are not identified with your thinking, you stand aside and you go on watching, just as if you are standing by the side of the road and watching the traffic. The mind is like traffic, very circular, goes on moving in a circle, very repetitive, almost a mechanism."
