Talk #5 of the Series, The Perfect Master, Vol. 1

"What is man's basic problem? It is not ignorance, it is knowledge. Knowledge is always borrowed. It is never original. But one can believe that one knows and can be fool others and can be befooled oneself.

"Knowledge is the greatest deceptive force in the world. It makes people cunning, hypocrites, egoists. It gives them false notions that they know – that they know what truth is, that they know what 'the true path' is. And because of this, they go on missing.

"They come across truth many times, but they cannot see. Their eyes are full of knowledge, hence blind. A knowledgeable man is a blind man. He is cunning and clever, but not intelligent. Cunningness and cleverness look like intelligence, but that is only an appearance. And don't be deceived by the appearance, because it is there where man's basic confusion."

Osho continues:
"is rooted – in his cleverness, his cunningness, his knowledgeability.

"One has to unlearn it all, then only does one become a disciple. If you know already, you can't be a disciple; your very knowledge will hinder you. How can you surrender when you know? Knowledge never surrenders. It is only innocence that is capable of that great quantum leap.

"Surrender is possible only out of innocence, because out of innocence arises trust, out of innocence is faith, out of innocence is all religion.

"I have heard a beautiful anecdote:

"A great master, Zusiya, went to suffer the exile in Germany. He came to a city of Reform Jews. When they saw his ways, they mocked him and thought he was crazy. When he came into the synagogue, some of them poked fun at him, and when the children saw their parents ridiculing him, they thought he was crazy and began to pull at him and tug at his belt. Then he beckoned to the children and said, 'My dear children, gather round and I will tell you something.' The children thought he would show them a trick. They all stood around him and he in the middle. And he said to them, 'My dear children, look well at me, do not take your eyes off me.'

"The children, because they thought he was going to show them something, looked steadily at him and he also looked steadily at each child separately. After that he told them to go home.

"When the children came home and were given their food, they refused to eat. One said that the meat must not be eaten. Another asked how one could eat unclean meat. And so all the children refused to eat. They said the dishes were unclean and the food was unclean.

"Then, as women do, one went to another and told her that all of a sudden her son came home from the prayer house and refused to eat; whatever was given to him, he said it was unclean. Then her neighbor said that her son too refused to eat and shouted that everything was unclean and that one could not pray in her house because her hair was uncovered."
