Forgetfulness: The Only Sin

Talk #7 of the Series, The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 06

"An inmate at the insane asylum was being examined for possible release. The first question the examining doctor asked him was, 'What are you going to do when you leave this institution?'

"'I am gonna get me a slingshot,' said the patient, 'and I am gonna come back here and break every goddamn window in the place!'

"After six more months of treatment, the patient was again brought before the examining doctor for possible dismissal, and the same question was put to him.

"'Well, I am going to get a job,' the patient replied.

"'Fine,' said the doctor. 'Then what?'

"'I am going to rent an apartment.'

"'Very good.'

"'Then I am going to meet a beautiful girl.'


"'I am going to take the beautiful girl up to my apartment and I am going to pull up her skirt.'

"'Normal, perfectly normal.'

"'Then I am gonna steal her garter, make a slingshot out of it and come back here and break every goddamn window in the place!'

"Man moves almost in the same circles."

Osho continues:
"Man as he is, is not sane, cannot be called sane. But because insanity is so widespread, is so normal we don't become aware of it. Once you become awakened you are surprised how people are living, what they are doing to themselves and to others. Their whole life is nothing but sheer madness. Somebody is mad after money, somebody is mad after power, somebody is mad after fame, and all these things are futile.

"Death comes, and the whole edifice that you have built with such labor collapses. Death comes and takes you away, and all that you have created has been in vain.

"The sane person is one who creates something which even death cannot destroy. Let this be the definition of the sane: one who knows something of immortality, deathlessness, eternity. He is sane, is a buddha. To be a buddha simply means to be sane. One who is not aware of immortality and lives in time and thinks only in terms of this world is insane. He is not aware of himself, how can he be sane?

"We have not yet been able to create a sane society for the simple reason that we have not been able to create many buddhas. The more buddhas there are in the world, the greater is the possibility of humanity rising to higher altitudes of being, understanding, love, compassion. Otherwise you go on moving from one nightmare to another.

"A big businessman was praying in the synagogue, pleading to God to help him get a fifty-thousand-dollar deal. Just then a very poor man entered and began praying to God for two dollars.

"Angrily the big businessman pulled out two dollar bills, pushed them over to the poor fellow and whispered to him, 'Here, take them and get out of here, you fool. Just stop distracting him from my business!'

"The poor and the rich, the ignorant and the knowledgeable, the famous and the anonymous, are all in the same boat. Whether you ask God for two dollars or fifty thousand dollars does not make any difference. To go to God desiring is not to go to him at all, because it is only non-desiring that becomes a bridge."
