Yakusan: Straight to the Point of Enlightenment

A collection of five talks given on stories of the Zen master, Yakusan. Osho uses these anecdotes and a diversity of subjects as a springboard into the reality of the Zen approach to truth, a book not so much "about" Zen, but instead a Zen look at the world around us.

These talks are an urgent and tantalizing call to "wake up" to the inner potential we each carry – our buddhahood ; as Osho points out, often lovingly and with humor.

At the end of each talk Osho guides the reader into this space of meditation. From a crescendo of laughter and gibberish, he guides us straight to the place where the inner buddha resides: straight to the point of enlightenment. A fantastic book for those wishing to go inside themselves.

Excerpt from: Yakusan: Straight to the Point of Enlightenment, Chapter 4
"While I am speaking on Zen masters, I am speaking in a way which is absolutely contemporary; you can understand it. They are still speaking the language of the past.

"It is a calamity that the so-called religious people get caught up in a certain moment in history. Then they don’t progress from that place. The Buddhists are caught up with Gautam Buddha, twenty-five centuries back. Everything has changed, but their ideology remains twenty-five centuries old. It does not ring bells in your heart, hence you cannot feel at home.

"Never think for a moment that what I am saying about Zen has been said by the Zen masters themselves. I am constantly improving, improvising. With me religion is not something static. It is an evolutionary process. It grows like a tree, hundreds of feet high, it moves like a river, thousands of miles; not for a single moment does the movement stop. Since eternity rivers have been moving and moving and moving.

"I am not a pond; and when you go to Japan you will find ponds. I make every effort to make the ponds flow like a river. A pond knows nothing but death; it is dying every moment, the water is evaporating. Soon there will be just mud left." Osho
