The Great Zen Master Ta Hui

Reflections on the Transformation of an Intellectual to Enlightenment
Osho tells of the progression of Ta Hui, a well-known Chinese Zen teacher of the 7th century, from his intellectual understanding of Buddhist scriptures to Buddhahood. An extraordinary series of discourses which takes the reader from a space where most seekers may be to their potential.

"The great Zen teacher Ta Hui comes from the same lineage as Bodhidharma. He was born four hundred years after Bodhidharma had left for the Himalayas, to disappear into the eternal ice, the eternal silence there.

"I have called Ta Hui the great Zen teacher – not a master…it has to be explained to you clearly. The master is one who is enlightened; but sometimes it happens that the master may be enlightened, but is not articulate enough to give expression to what he has known."

Excerpt from: The Great Zen Master Ta Hui, Chapter 1
"The great Zen teacher Ta Hui comes from the same lineage as Bodhidharma. He was born four hundred years after Bodhidharma had left for the Himalayas, to disappear into the eternal ice, the eternal silence there.

"I have called Ta Hui the great Zen teacher – not a master…it has to be explained to you clearly. The master is one who is enlightened. but sometimes it happens that the master may be enlightened, but is not articulate enough to give expression to what he has known. That is a totally different art.

"The teacher is not enlightened, but he is very articulate. He can say things which the master, although he knows, cannot bring to words. The teacher can say them, although he does not know.

"The teacher he has heard… he has lived with enlightened people, he has imbibed their energy, he has been showered by their flowers. He has tasted something transpiring from the enlightened ones, so he has a certainty that something like enlightenment happens, but he has no authority of his own; his authority is borrowed. And if the teacher is a genius, he can almost manage to express things over which masters have faltered, or they have remained silent.
The teacher has his own utility. He is more available to the people – he belongs to the people. The master is on a high sunlit peak. Even if he shouts from there, only echoes reach to the people’s ears. But the teacher lives amongst the people, knows their life, knows their language, knows how things should be expressed so they can understand. The master remains committed to his experience, while the teacher is more committed to the people, to spread the message.

"Once in a while it happens that the master cannot express at all. For example, Ramakrishna was an enlightened man, but utterly uneducated, uncultured, knowing nothing of great literature, knowing nothing of what other enlightened people have said. He experienced the beauty of his inner being, but he was absolutely handicapped as far as conveying it to others." Osho
In this title, Osho talks on the following topics:
