Talk #3 of the Series, The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 05

"Gautama the Buddha is the greatest breakthrough that humanity has known up to now. Time should not be divided by the name of Jesus Christ, it should be divided by the name of Gautam Buddha. We should divide history before Buddha and after Buddha, not before Christ and after Christ, because Christ is not a breakthrough, he is a continuity. He represents the past in its tremendous beauty and grandeur. He is the very essence of the whole search of man before him. He is the fragrance of all the past endeavors of man to know God, but he is not a breakthrough. In the real sense of the word he is not a rebel. Buddha is, but Jesus looks more rebellious than Buddha for the simple reason that Jesus's rebellion is visible and Buddha's rebellion is invisible."

Osho continues:
"You will need great insight to understand what Buddha has contributed to human consciousness, to human evolution, to human growth. Man would not have been the same if there had been no Buddha. Man would have been the same if there had been no Christ, no Krishna; there would not have been much difference. Remove Buddha and something of tremendous importance would have been lost, but his rebellion is very invisible, very subtle.

"Before Buddha the search, the religious search, was fundamentally a concern with God – a God who is outside, a God who is somewhere above in the heavens. The religious search was as concerned with an object of desire as the worldly search. The worldly man sought money, power, prestige, and the otherworldly man was seeking God, heaven, eternity, truth. But one thing was common, both were looking outside themselves, both were extroverts. Remember this word, because this is going to help you understand Buddha.

"Before Buddha, the religious search was not concerned with the within but with the without. It was extrovert, and when the religious search is extrovert it is not really religious. Religion begins only with introversion, when you start diving deeply within yourself.

"People had looked for centuries for God. Who is the builder of the universe? Who is the creator of the universe? And there are many who are still living in a pre-Buddha time, who are still asking such questions. Who is the creator of the world? When did he create the world? There are some stupid people who have even determined the day, the date and the year when God created the world. There are Christian theologians who say that exactly four thousand and four years before Jesus Christ – Monday, 1st January! – God created the world or started creating the world, and he finished the job in six days. Only one thing is true about it, that he must have finished the job in six days because you can see the mess the world is in – it is a six-day job! And since then he has not been heard of. On the seventh day he rested, and since then he has been resting."
