Talk #9 of the Series, The Zen Manifesto: Freedom from Oneself


"First, the questions from sannyasins.

These Zen sutras seem to come from a time when there were many enlightened ones in this world. What broke the chain of enlightenment, and left our planet with a single precious and unhidden flame of buddha nature?
How is it we have evolved into such an unenlightened planet when we were once blessed with so many masters?

"The question is significant, and many of you may have wondered about it. What happened to human consciousness that it has fallen deep into darkness? Why don't we see so many buddhas?

"The reason is very clear: the little man we talked about yesterday destroyed every possibility for enlightenment.

"It is not just in one country. Around the world, whenever there was a man of immense consciousness, the masses were against him, the masses were violent."

Osho continues:
"One Christian was asking me – an old friend – 'Do you think Jesus will come again?' I said, 'I don't think, I am absolutely certain if he is intelligent, he will not come again. What you did with him last time – that's enough to prevent him from coming back. You have poisoned Socrates, Anaxagoras, you have crucified Jesus, al-Hillaj Mansoor, Sarmad'

"The masses have never been respectful to the living buddha. So many attempts were made on the life of Gautam Buddha, and finally he died from poisoning. This misbehavior of the ordinary, unconscious, but the majority of people, simply prevents.

"I have been poisoned, jailed, for no reason at all – fined four hundred thousand dollars, and I don't have a single dollar with me. Twenty-one countries have closed their doors by law, saying that I cannot enter.

"Sometimes it seems the politicians are the most stupid people around. They have passed laws in their parliaments that my jet airplane cannot even land and refuel on their airports, because my presence – in my airplane, on the airport – can contaminate and destroy their morality, their religion of two thousand years' standing!

"I have been expelled from Greece – threatened, and under the pressure of the archbishop of Greece, the government had to deport me. The threat was that if I was not deported, all the people who were living with me on the beautiful island of Crete – that place would be dynamited. And fifty persons at least were there with me – all would be burned alive.

"The reason? I had not even gone outside the boundary of the house, but the same reason again and again: I would corrupt their morality, I would destroy their religion. Such a fear has prevented people from moving deeper into themselves.

"My secretary, Anando, says to me, 'You are a bad example for enlightenment. Twenty-one countries are closed for you. One country has poisoned you, jailed you, dragged you into six jails in twelve days without any evidence.'

"And they have admitted it now, that there was no direct evidence of any crime, 'but we simply wanted the commune to be destroyed.'

"One wonders why America should be worried about a small commune which was living in a desert."
