Talk #6 of the Series, The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 01

I feel like I know the answers. Why do I still allow the questions to become problems?

"There are not answers, there is only the answer. And that answer is not of the mind, that answer cannot be of the mind. Mind is a multiplicity. Mind has answers and answers, but not the answer.

"That answer is a state of no-mind. It is not verbal. You can know it but you cannot reduce it to knowledge. You can know it, but you cannot say it. It is known in the innermost recesses of your being. It is a light that simply illuminates your interiority.

"It is not an answer to any particular question. It is the end of all questioning, it refers to no question at all."

Osho continues:
"It simply dissolves all the questions and a state is left without any question. That's the answer. Unless that is known, nothing is known.

"Hence, you may feel that you know the answers, but still questions will go on popping up, still questions will go on torturing you. Questions are bound to arise still because the root is not yet cut. New leaves will be sprouting, new branches will be arising.

"The root is cut only when you disconnect yourself from the mind, when you become so aware, so watchful that you can see the mind as separate from you. When all identity with the mind is dropped, when you are a watcher on the hills and the mind is left deep down in the darkness of the valleys, when you are on the sunlit peaks, just a pure witness, seeing, watching, but not getting identified with anything – good or bad, sinner or saint, this or that – in that witnessing all questions dissolve. The mind melts, evaporates. You are left as a pure being, just a pure existence – a breathing, a beating of the heart, utterly in the moment, no past, no future, hence no present either.

"Unless that state arrives you will feel many times that you know the answers, but each answer will only create new questions. Each answer will trigger new chains of questions in you. You can read, you can study, you can think, but you will get more and more in the mire of the mind, more entangled and trapped. Slip out of the mind!

"Hence, I am not giving you answers, I am trying to point out the answer. You cannot use a plural for it because it is one. It is a state of utter silence, peace, no-thought. Buddha calls it right mindfulness: sammasati. And he says that to those who are rightly mindful, alert, aware, the truth comes on its own accord. You need not go anywhere, it comes. You need not even seek and search, because how can you seek and search? Out of your ignorance, whatsoever you do will bring more ignorance. Out of your ignorance, wherever you go you will go astray."
