Talk #5 of the Series, This. This. A Thousand Times This: The Very Essence of Zen

"Maneesha, before I discuss the anecdote, concerning a Zen master named Sekito, meaning stonehead, I have to answer Quick magazine in Germany. As far as Stonehead is concerned, he is standing behind you – Zen master Niskriya. Can you find a bigger stonehead?


"Quick magazine needs a quick reply. Because I have been talking about one world, one humanity, I knew some idiot was going to ask this question. Quick magazine has asked: 'If you would offer yourself personally to be the world emperor…with eighteen hours a day sleep you could rule, but that would be in a dream.'

"It raises many questions. I have talked about one world, but I have never meant that I would be the emperor of this insane world."

Osho continues:
"Jesus has replied for me, 'My kingdom is not of this world.'

"There is a vast universe beyond the small mind of the politician – and those who become themselves, also become emperors of the universe. There is no competition between Baso and Buddha. At the highest peak of consciousness there is no competition, everybody is an emperor.

"So first, to remind Quick and its readers that I am already the emperor of my own consciousness. I don't want to come down from my peaks to the dark valleys of your unconsciousness. But I can point the way: how you can also become an emperor. To be an emperor, an empire is not needed, but enlightenment is. That is the only empire that remains. All other empires are made of the stuff that dreams are made of.

"As far as I am concerned, even in my dream I would not accept beuing the emperor of this insane asylum you call the world.

"Secondly, it has to be understood that my eighteen hours of sleep are not of the same quality as your sleep, just as my waking hours are not of the same quality as your waking. I am awake even in my sleep, you are fast asleep even in your waking. Don't forget it!

"My statement for one humanity, for one world, does not imply an emperor in it. The world has been tortured by people who wanted to be emperors, Alexander, Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, Adolf Hitler. It is time to understand that the world can only be one in the hands of something like the UN, in which every part of the earth can be represented. And the most intelligent people can be chosen from different sections of humanity to join hands together; not to choose an emperor, but to create an intelligent committee which can have artists, scientists, poets – only not including the politicians.

"Creative people are not interested in dominating, they want to create. Whatever is their dimension of creation… it may be science, it may be painting, it may be music, it may be poetry. It may be anything that beautifies and makes the world rich, saner, more intelligent, more comfortable – richer in every possible way."
In this title, Osho talks on the following topics:

naked… relax… baso… tamerlane
