The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 09

Osho calls the incomparable Dhammapada sutras of Buddha, "the book of books."

Osho explains that these sutras are concerned with aspects of man′s unawareness, and that Buddha′s whole message is concerned with the raising of our consciousness. These sutras were compiled by Buddha′s disciples to contain the essence of all his teachings. This was the last turning of the Wheel of Dharma, 2,500 years ago. At the beginning of his commentaries on these sutras, Osho says he is setting the Wheel of Dharma in motion again.

He also responds to questions from disciples and seekers in alternate discourses, with a generous sprinkling of stories, personal anecdotes and, of course, a multitude of jokes. Visually this boxed set is stunning, without doubt a collector′s piece and twelve volumes to treasure for years to come.

Excerpt from: The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 09, Chapter 10
"I am talking about being, not about becoming. Becoming is an invention of the crafty politicians and the priests – and these are the people who have poisoned the whole humanity. They go on giving you goals. If you become tired of the worldly things – money, power, prestige – they are there to tell you about paradise, God, samadhi, truth. Again the whole process starts.

"And it is easy to be frustrated with the worldly things. Sooner or later you can see the whole stupidity of having more money or more power. Sooner or later you are going to see the futility of the very idea of ‘more,&rsquot; because the more brings nothing else but more misery. It takes away all bliss from you, all peace from you. It is destructive. It gives you only fear, trembling, anxiety, neurosis. It makes you insane; that can be seen very easily. It has made the whole earth a madhouse.
"But to see that the otherworldly goals – nirvana and moksha and God and paradise – are also the same is very difficult. You will need tremendous intelligence to see that those goals are also of the same quality. There is no qualitative change because you are still thinking in terms of becoming, you are still thinking in terms of the future.

"Future does not exist, it is nonexistential. It is as nonexistential as the past. The past is no more, the future is not yet; only the present is. And in the present there is no possibility for desiring, no possibility of being ambitious, not space enough for the ego to exist. Whenever you are now and here there is no ego to be found. You are a pure silence. Right now"see what I am saying. I am not propounding a theory or a philosophy; I am simply stating a fact." Osho
