The Discipline of Transcendence, Vol. 1

Talks on the 42 Sutras of Buddha
This is the first of four volumes in which Osho comments on the 42 earliest-known teachings of Buddha. Here is Buddha alive, relevant, scientific in insight, and very human. Using Buddha′s wisdom as a springboard, Osho brings to life words that have the power to change the way we see the world, change the way we see religion, and above all, change the way we are. Far from being just a statue, here Buddha is an amazing human being so far ahead of his time that even now he is only just beginning to be more widely understood.

Excerpt from: The Discipline of Transcendence Vol. 1, Chapter 2
"Consciousness is individual, unconsciousness is universal; superconscious is universal, consciousness is individual. So if somewhere in Arica or somewhere else they are teaching you to be part of the group, you will become unconscious. The greater possibility is that you will fall from your consciousness. Unless you become a Buddha, you cannot become one, you cannot know the real oneness with the whole.

"The real oneness of the whole can be known only in two ways: either become unconscious, lose your consciousness – individuality is lost; or go beyond consciousness – then your individuality is lost.

"That's why a crowd has so much appeal for people. Have you seen people in a crowd, how happy they look? …

"Why do people feel so happy in a crowd? Why does happiness in a crowd become so infectious? Because in a crowd they fall down, they become unconscious. They lose their individuality, they merge their individuality. By dropping their consciousness they drop their individuality. Then they are happy, then there is no worry, then there is no responsibility.

"Have you observed the fact that individuals have not committed great sins in the world? All great sins have been committed by crowds, never by individuals. An army can commit millions of sins. Ask single individuals of that army and they will start feeling responsible. Ask them, 'Can you do the same thing alone?' They will say, 'No. How can I do the same thing alone? It was the crowd, I became lost in it. I forgot myself. The crowd mood, the mob, was too much. I was lost. The crowd was doing something, I simply became a part of it. I have not done it.' Ask single Mohammedans, 'Can you burn a temple or murder Hindus?' Ask Hindus, 'Can you murder Mohammedans – individually?'

"This is a miracle, but we don′t observe it. No individual Mohammedan is bad, no individual Hindu is bad. Individuals are beautiful people, as people are always beautiful. In a crowd suddenly they change their faces… a metamorphosis happens. They are no more individuals, they are no more conscious beings; they are lost. Then the crowd has its own way; nobody can control it." Osho
In this title, Osho talks on the following topics:
