Talk #2 of the Series, Zen: The Diamond Thunderbolt

"Maneesha, these small anecdotes belong to a world that has disappeared: the world of the seeker, the world to know oneself, which we have lost long ago. It is no more the same world in which these anecdotes happened. Now nobody goes on a pilgrimage like a cloud. Now nobody is capable to be so light and free like a cloud. Everybody is burdened with prejudice, all kinds of nonsense, nobody seems to be interested at least in one thing – that is himself.

"Man's mind has become objective and it has forgotten a language that was of subjectivity. He looks out, and he has looked deeply into the outer world in the form of the different sciences. It has penetrated matter to its very innermost being. It has reached to the farthest star, but it has forgotten one basic thing: 'Who is within me?'

"Now all this knowledge of the objective world is of no value in comparison to having a little glimpse of the inner sky and its beauty – its sunrises and sunsets, its days and nights, its sky and its stars."

Osho continues:
"Then the outer looks only a paler reflection of the inner; the inner becomes more real and the outer becomes just a shadow.

"Although the past was in many ways difficult, on one single point – the search for consciousness – we are now much lower on the scale. You have to understand these dialogues – they don't belong to the world in which you live, they don't belong to the mind that you have right now. But intelligence has the capacity to enter into different realms of consciousness, and it is a tremendous experience that people have lived differently, loved differently, heard differently a music, a dance, a beatitude. Even if you can get little glimpses of the world that is lost you will be able to find the track of your own buddhahood.

"That was the dedication of all the intelligent people of the past – to find one's own kingdom, which cannot be taken away; nothing can destroy it, fire cannot burn it. Death does not happen in that dimension, only roses of bliss, lotuses of ecstasy and a freedom that has no limits. A joy comes to every fiber of your being; every cell of your being starts to dance without any reason. Just for the sake of being, one feels at the very highest peak of existence. One cannot ask for more, it has already been given, just we have lost the way to our own home.

"These anecdotes relate to those seekers. They have become very foreign to us; that is why, even though we can understand the language, we cannot understand what is happening inside, behind the curtain. The anecdotes look very ordinary, but they are not ordinary; there cannot be anything more extraordinary than these Zen seekers – their ways of inquiry.

"Tokusan is one great master. Before he became a master he came to Isan's temple. Every master had his own temple, his own monastery. Disciples moved from one monastery to another monastery in search of a man with whom they could fall in love, with whom they can risk all.

"And the moment someone finds a master who could become more precious than his own life, that day is the most fortunate day for the disciple."
