Talk #5 of the Series, Unio Mystica, Vol. 1

"Life exists through duality. The very process of life depends on polar opposites. Life is like a river: for the river to exist, two banks are needed. The river cannot exist without two banks to support it, just as the bird cannot fly without two wings and you cannot walk without two legs.

"Life needs duality. Everywhere you will find it, till the ultimate arrives. The ultimate, the absolute, or call it godliness, transcends duality. But then life disappears. Then you become invisible. Then you have no form, no name. Then you have gone beyond – that is nirvana.

"These two things have to be understood. Life cannot exist without polar opposites. Life is a dialectical process between man and woman, between darkness and light, between life and death, between good and bad."

Osho continues:
"Life cannot exist without this duality. Manifestation is not possible without duality.

"Hence, another vision becomes possible to be understood. If duality disappears, life as you know it disappears. Life in time and space disappears. Then another door opens. You move to another plane – the plane of the invisible, the plane of the mysterious, the plane where there is no form, no name. All remains, but unmanifest. That is called nirvana, moksha, the ultimate state of samadhi where all disappears.

"If duality is the way of life, then nonduality is the way of religion – because religion is nothing but an art of transcending the manifested form and going into the unmanifest, going to the original source from where we come and for which we long – because we belong there. Wherever we are, we cannot feel at home; something remains unfulfilled. We go on missing the original source because rest is only in the source.

"Today's sutras are of immense value. Meditate over each word:
The pure man unites
two in one;
the lover unites
three in one.
"The Gnostic tradition says there are two paths to transcend duality, to transcend multiplicity, to transcend this constant conflict between life and death. The first path is called by the Gnostics via purgativa, 'through purity'; and the second path is called via unitiva, 'through unity.' The first is the path of meditation, the second the path of love. The first is Zen, the second is Sufism.

"On the path of meditation, one has to eliminate, one has to empty oneself totally. On the path of love, just the reverse process has to be followed – one has to become more and more full. One has to become so full that one starts overflowing. On the path of meditation, one has to become so empty that nothing remains within, one is just a pure nothingness.

"That's why Buddha says that there is no soul. He says in the ultimate experience nothing is found; only nothing is found. It is utter emptiness, a state of no-self, anatta, hence he has called it nirvana. Nirvana means 'putting out a candle' – the ego just disappears as if you have put out a candle; nothing remains."
