Intelligence: Discovery of Your Innermost Nature

Talk #7 of the Series, Zen: Zest, Zip, Zap and Zing

You are showering immense love on your disciples and others. But why aren't other enlightened beings like you, so full of love and compassion? Is it not true that love and compassion dawn with enlightenment?
Why do other masters seem to be so dry, and mere intellectuals in comparison with you?

"The first thing to remember is that out of one hundred masters there is only one master; ninety-nine are only teachers. The teacher is necessarily learned; the master may be learned, may not be learned – it is not a necessity. The teacher is well-versed as far as tradition is concerned, conventions are concerned, social ethos is concerned. He lives a borrowed life, and a borrowed life cannot be weightless, a borrowed life is bound to be heavy, dull, dry, dead."

Osho continues:
"The master is a rebel. He lives out of his own being; he is spontaneous, not traditional. He cannot be traditional – it is impossible for a master to be traditional. Jesus was born a Jew but is not a Jew. Buddha was born a Hindu but is not a Hindu. The same is true of all enlightened masters. But the teacher is just a caricature of the master – he pretends to be the master, it is his ego trip.

"The master is egoless hence there is nothing but love. The moment ego disappears your whole energy is pure love, compassion, fragrance. It is a sheer celebration, a festival of lights, a song, a dance, a joy for no other reason, just for its own sake. The master is bound to be like a garden: many flowers, many birds singing, peacocks dancing, the wind passing through the ancient pine trees, and the sound of running water.

"The master is music, is poetry; the teacher is mathematics, calculation. The teacher lives in words, the master lives a wordless life. The teacher is head, the master is heart. But we have completely lost the language by which to understand a master, for the simple reason that a master very rarely happens. The phenomenon is so rare that we go on forgetting how to recognize a master, how to understand a master, how to comprehend a master. We have lost all insight into that tremendous phenomenon.

"The teacher is well-known, well-understood; he is part and parcel of our stupid existence. He is blind just as you are blind, but he speaks the same language, hence he is understandable, comprehensible. The master is not blind. He speaks a totally different language so he seems to be an outsider; the teacher appears to be an insider. With the teacher you can fall en rapport very easily, there is no difficulty – he belongs to the same dimension. But the master is alien, a stranger – he belongs to another dimension, to another world, to the farther shore, to the beyond. He exists in you, amidst you, but he belongs to the beyond. His message comes from a far, far away source."
