A Grand Approach to Reality

Talk #3 of the Series, Yakusan: Straight to the Point of Enlightenment

"Friends, the two greatest enemies of man and life are religions and the military. They have both the same orientation: life-negation.

"Religions teach people to renounce life, it is a sin to rejoice in it. In an indirect way they are teaching people to be life-destructive. They are enhancing a consolation that after life, after death, you will have all the pleasures of paradise.

"The military is also life-negative. Its whole function is to prepare for death. You can see the relationship: the military prepares to destroy people, and religion consoles them, 'Don't be worried. The real life begins after death.' Hence they have a subtle conspiracy, which is not so obvious to ordinary people.

"Religions – all the religions are included – have done their best to destroy people's love, their life, their laughter."

Osho continues:
"They have poisoned everything on the planet. If you are miserable, it is not your fault; you are programmed by the religions to be miserable. If you are criminals, suicidal, murderers, rapists, you are not responsible at all. You have been programmed to do all these things – but in such a way that unless you have the vision of a buddha, you will not be able to figure it out.

"For example, to forcibly make man monogamous is to destroy his whole joy of being with women, women's joy of being with men. A husband soon becomes a commodity, a wife soon becomes a lifelong purchased prostitute. You use each other, and to use any human being is against the dignity of humanity.

"You can use things, but you cannot use human beings. And what are husbands doing? What are wives doing? And who is responsible for this? Who has created the prostitutes? To save marriage, millions of women live in the ugliest manner: by selling their bodies. It is religion.

"Who has taken away your laughter, your smiling faces? Who has made you look so sad, in such despair and misery and anguish?

"Sigmund Freud was right when he said that religion has been teaching against sex. It could not manage to make people against sex, but it has succeeded at least in poisoning sex. While making love you feel guilty – and how can you rejoice when you feel guilty? If you are committing a sin you cannot rejoice. Unless love is a virtue, your birthright, it is poisoned.

"Just as Sigmund Freud is right, so is Karl Marx when he says that religions are the opium of the people. They keep people drugged, drugged in fictions: in God, in heaven, in the greed for paradise and its pleasures, in the fear and paranoia of hell.

"Just today I have received all the literature from the American Atheist Society. They have suffered immensely – you will not believe it – just as our commune suffered in America. Again, behind the government was the Christian church.

"The woman who founded the Atheist Society has been jailed nineteen times without any reason – and the American Constitution gives the freedom to choose your religion or not to choose."
