Returning to the Source (New Edition, Hardbound)

Talks on Zen
This book is a glorious mixture of no-nonsense Zen and sublime poetic mystery.

Being ordinary, says Osho, is the most extraordinary phenomenon possible. He uses stories about many different Zen masters to illustrate the timeless power and magic of Zen and its potential to transform contemporary humanity.

A Zen master is nothing special: he meditates, and has a wonderful sense of humor, but also goes to the forest to cut wood because winter is approaching? He does many things just like an ordinary man but with an extraordinary awareness.

Zen doesn’t believe in renouncing the world or not renouncing the world; the basic thing is just to be alert wherever we are. Zen gives us total freedom; our lifestyle doesn’t matter. All that counts is our awareness, which will take us back to our original source.

"If you are courageous and you don’t go backwards, if you don’t fall back to the ego and you go on and on, there is a hidden center within you that you have been carrying for many lives. That is your soul, the atman, the self."
Osho

Excerpt from: Returning to the Source, Chapter 2
"When you are conscious of time you are in the grip of death. When you are not conscious of time, death simply cannot enter. It enters through time. Death is time, and life is eternal, timeless. You are life, not death.

"What did the doctors do to that poor old man? They suggested to him, ‘Now you don’t work, you rest, because if you rest you can live even longer; you may live two centuries, and that will be a phenomenon for medical science!’ So they helped him to rest. They put him on a bed and they started giving him injections and vitamins. He was dead within two years – he had become so conscious and worried.

"If you are too concerned with the body you become the body. If you go on looking in the mirror you become the body. That’s why women age faster than men – the mirror. And the miracle is, basically they live longer than men but they age faster. On average, all over the world, they live four years longer than men, but they age faster. They lose their beauty and their youth quickly. The mirror kills them – continuously meditating on the body.

"Meditate on the inner being, not on the body. Find a mirror which reflects you, not the body. That mirror which reflects you is meditation. The more you meditate, the more ageless you become." Osho
