Track #13 of the Series, Philosophia Ultima

"The Sanskrit language is the most ancient language in the world, hence it has a certain beauty, a certain flexibility, a certain poetry which has disappeared in the modern languages. The modern languages are scientific; they are closer to prose, mathematics logic. The modern languages insist on definite meanings, hence they are not flexible; they are solid blocks with clear-cut definitions.

"The Sanskrit words have many meanings. Each word is a rainbow, a whole spectrum of meanings. Hence there is much scope to interpret in different ways, on different planes. So each Sanskrit word can be defined in many ways, multi-dimensionally.

"This fundamental sutra, the beej mantra
Aum
Purnamadah
Purnamidam
Purnat purnamudachyate
Purnasya purnamadaya
Purnameva vashisyate.

"– consists only of one word: purna. This word purna can be translated in three ways. The first meaning can be perfection; that's how it is being translated ordinarily by the scholars, pundits, professors."

Osho continues:
"But that is the lowest meaning of it, the grossest meaning of it, for the simple reason that the idea of perfection is inapplicable to existence.

"Only in one way can existence be said to be perfect, and that is that existence is perfect in its imperfectness. If existence were really perfect then there would be no possibility of evolution; perfection would mean death, absolute death. But life is growing, not only on the outside but on the inside too. Life is continuously moving like a river towards the ocean, towards the horizon – which always appears to come closer and closer, but still a distance remains; one never absolutely arrives.

"In other words, life is a pilgrimage without a goal – and that's its beauty, that's why it is alive. If the goal is achieved, then there is no meaning left; then there is no point in going on existing. Perfection will mean suicide; hence the meaning of purna as perfect is only scholarly. It is used by people who have not experienced existence, who have studied the scriptures but who have not merged into the ocean of life, who have not tasted it. It is a childish interpretation.

"A first-grade schoolteacher was taking her pupils on a field trip to the local zoo. Each child was given a turn at guessing the names of the various animals. The camel, lion, giraffe, bear and the elephant all were named correctly.

"'Now it's your turn,' the teacher said to a little girl. She pointed to a deer and said, 'What's the name of that animal?'

"The little girl hesitated for a long time, and the teacher tried to prompt her by saying, 'Think hard. What does your mother call your father at home?'

"'So that's what a baboon looks like!' the little girl exclaimed.

"That is the most childish meaning and it is dangerous too, because all perfectionism leads to neurosis. The perfectionist is not a healthy and sane person. He is bound to go insane because he is always trying to be perfect, and life is always imperfect. He is trying to go against the current, he is trying to go against the law, the universal law: aes dhammo sanantano."
