Talk #1 of the Series, The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 06

"Gautama the Buddha is talking about the very essence of buddhahood: the height of buddhahood and the depth of it, the glory and the grace, the tremendous freedom that it brings, the light that it showers, the love, the joy, the bliss, the awakening.

"These sutras are rare, rare even amongst the rarest sutras, because Buddha is opening his own heart to you. He is inviting you to become a guest in his innermost core. He is revealing, in simple words, the fragrance that has happened to him and that is also possible for you because each man is born to be a buddha.

"Unless one becomes a buddha one has not lived and one has not known what life is. One has dreamed of course, and dreamed of a thousand and one things; but one has been asleep."

Osho continues:
"And whether your dreams are beautiful or ugly does not matter. In the morning of buddhahood when you have awakened, all those dreams, both good and bad, sweet and bitter, golden dreams and nightmares, will be known as false, illusory. It was a self-deception, and people have lived for lives in self-deception; the capacity to deceive oneself is enormous. Beware of it. One can even dream that one is awake, one can even dream that one has become a buddha. That is the ultimate trick the mind can play upon you.

"It happened in Baghdad

"A man was brought to the caliph, because the man had declared that he was the new messenger of God. The caliph was irritated, annoyed, and he said, 'You must be mad, because Mohammed is the last messenger of God and there is not going to be anybody else. The message has arrived in the Koran. Yes, before Mohammed there had been other messages, but all those messages were fragmentary because man was not ready and ripe. Mohammed has brought the full message; now there is not going to be any other messenger in the world. Bring yourself to your senses; otherwise you will have to suffer for it!'

"The man was thrown into prison for seven days, tortured, beaten, starved. After seven days the caliph arrived. The man was bound to a pillar, bruised, wounded. The caliph said, 'Now you must have come to your senses. What do you say now?'

"The man laughed and he said, 'All the torture and all the suffering that have been imposed upon me simply prove that I am really the messenger, because when God was sending me to the world he warned me: 'My messengers have always been tortured.' And I was doubting; I was wondering why people were not torturing me if I am the real messenger. You have proved it! God was right, there was no need to doubt.'

"The caliph was at a loss – what to say to this madman? But suddenly another man who was also bound to a pillar started laughing hysterically. The caliph asked him, 'Why are you laughing?'

"The man said, 'This guy is a cheat, because I am God myself, and I have never sent this man to the world as my messenger!'

"That man had been imprisoned one month before, declaring himself God."
