Talk #8 of the Series, No-Mind: The Flowers of Eternity

"My Friends,

"Before I discuss the sutras, a real concern to my heart is more urgent to be discussed.

"India's prime minister Rajiv Gandhi has been trying his hardest to create a friendship with China, and it seems they are settling the matter. I don't blame Rajiv Gandhi. Two big countries like India and China cannot remain forever enemies – whoever is weaker, sooner or later is going to give way.

"This is the second defeat to India. The first defeat was when China invaded Indian territory in the Himalayas, thousands of miles. India was not strong enough, and particularly it was not ready to fight in the eternal snows of the Himalayas.

"Rajiv Gandhi's grandfather – Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India – still fought, knowing perfectly well there was no possibility to be victorious."

Osho continues:
"And he was defeated. The Indian armies could not stand the snows of the Himalayas. They had never thought about it; hence they were not prepared.

"China conquered Tibet. One of the most significant countries in the world – small and poor, at the highest mountains, it was called 'the roof of the world,' and it has for centuries been devoting itself only to meditation. A singular country in the whole world – for centuries, continuously, it had only one desire: how to know oneself. It had no armies, it never invaded anyone; it had no desire like that, uncivilized, barbarous. It was primitive, but I will still say Tibet was the most civilized country, the most cultured.

"China invaded Tibet – Tibet had no arms, no armies. China crushed the poor Tibetans under machine guns, trampled their monasteries. Dalai Lama, the head of Tibet politically and religiously both, had no other way than to take refuge in the Indian part of Himalayas, in Dharmasala. Since then he has been living there with the thousands of Tibetans who have come with him.

"It is a very sad affair to say that nobody in the whole world even protested that an innocent country, which has never invaded and had never shown any desire to invade anybody, should be simply taken over because another country has power. It seems our whole civilization is a pretension; our whole talk about freedom and independence are mere words. Not only that, nobody raised a voice against China. Just now, Rajiv Gandhi has said, 'Tibet is China's internal affair.'

"It seems the law of the jungle still prevails. The bigger fish goes on eating the smaller fish – no protest.

"Now Dalai Lama, seeing the situation that India and China are going to become friends, has started to prepare to leave the country – because China's first demand will be that Dalai Lama should be handed over to China; other than that there is no possibility. It has been consistently China's demand that, 'Unless you hand over Dalai Lama to Peking there is no possibility of friendship.'

"And Rajiv Gandhi has forgotten completely those thousands of miles of Indian territory. That too is China's internal affair? Then soon the whole of India will be China's internal affair!

"One should not be so weak, either."
