Truth Is Always Alive, Eternally Alive

Talk #1 of the Series, The True Sage

"There are religions – Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism and many more – but they are religions, not the religion. They are the reflections of the moon in many kinds of minds, they are not the real moon. The moon is one, it can be reflected in millions of lakes; reflections differ, the reflected is one.

"Mind is a mirror. When religion is reflected through the mind, a Hinduism is born or a Mohammedanism or a Judaism. When the religion is not a reflected one – when one comes face to face with reality without any mind whatsoever, when there is no mind between you and the truth – then there is born the religion.

"Hasidism is the religion. Sufism is the religion. Zen is the religion. They differ only in names; otherwise they are all the same."

Osho continues:
"Their language is different but not their content. They all have looked at the moon, but they call it different names. Obviously. That is natural. But they have not been looking at the reflections. They don't believe in creeds, ideologies, scriptures, dogmas, doctrines; they know the truth. And when you know the truth there is no need of scriptures. You carry the scripture on your head when the truth is not known.

"Theories are substitutes, dead. Truth is always alive, eternally alive. It cannot be confined in words; the message is wordless. And you cannot come to it by somebody else, because whenever there is a medium, it becomes a reflection. When your own mind creates a reflection, what about other minds through which you come to know it?

"One has to come in immediate contact – direct, heart to heart. Nothing should be allowed between the two, your heart and the heart of reality. They should respond, in a deep resonance. They should meet and mingle and merge, and there should not even be a curtain of words, knowledge, concepts. Only then you know what religion is.

"Hasidism is religion, Judaism is just a reflection. Or you can say the same thing in other words: that Judaism is just the periphery and Hasidism is the core – the very core, the living soul, the very center. Buddhism is the periphery, Zen is the core. Islam is the periphery, Sufism is the core. And the core is one, peripheries are millions. On one center you can draw many concentric circles. You can go on drawing them, the center remains one.

"We will be talking about Hasidism. Before we enter into the spirit of it, a few remarks are needed as an introduction.

"Whenever the problem arises, 'How to talk about the religion,' it becomes very difficult because whatsoever you say about it is always going to be less than the truth. Whatsoever you say about it is always going to be a reflection: it can indicate, it cannot explain; it can show, but it cannot say. From where to begin to indicate, to show?

"I would like to start with Samuel Beckett's beautiful play, Waiting for Godot."
