Bhagwan: The Master of Silence

There was a monk who called himself “The Master of Silence.”

Actually he was a fraud and had no genuine understanding.

To sell his humbug Zen he had two eloquent attendant monks

to answer questions for him,
but, as if to show his inscrutable silent Zen,
he himself never uttered a word.

One day, during the absence of his two attendants,

a pilgrim came to him and asked:
Master, what is the Buddha?

Not knowing what to do, or how to answer,

he looked desperately around in all directions

for his missing mouthpieces.

The pilgrim, apparently pleased and satisfied,

thanked the master, and set out again on his journey.

On the road the pilgrim met the two attendant monks

on their way home.
He began telling them enthusiastically
what an enlightened being this Master of Silence is.

He said: I asked him what Buddha is
and he immediately turned his face to the east and to the west

implying that human beings are always looking for Buddha
here and there, but actually,
Buddha is not to be found in any such directions.
Oh what an enlightened master he is,

and how profound his teachings!

When the attendant monks returned,

the Master of Silence scolded them thus:

Where have you been all this time?

A while ago I was embarrassed to death and almost ruined

by an inquisitive pilgrim. 

 

Life is a mystery.

The more you understand it, the more mysterious it becomes.

The more you know, the less you feel that you know.

The more you become aware of the depth, the infinite depth,

the more it becomes almost impossible to say anything about it.

Hence silence.

A man who knows remains in such awe,

such infinite wonderment that even breathing stops.

Standing before the mystery of life, one is lost completely.

But there are problems,

and the first problem with the mystery of life

is that there is always the possibility of frauds,

people who can deceive others, people who can cheat.

In the world of science that is not possible.

Science moves on a plain ground with infinite caution -

logical, rational. If you utter something nonsensical,

immediately you will be caught,

because whatsoever you say can be verified.

Science is objective, and any assertion, any statement,

can be verified in experiments in the laboratories.

With religion everything is inner, subjective, mysterious,

and the path is not on a plain. It is a hilly track.

There are many ups and many downs,

and the path moves like a spiral.

Again and again you come to the same place,

maybe a little higher.

And whatsoever you say cannot be verified,

there is no criterion of verification.

Because it is inner, no experiment can prove or disprove it;

because it is mysterious, no logical argumentation can decide this way or that.

That's why science is one,

but there exist almost three thousand religions in the world.

You cannot prove any religion false. Neither can you prove

any other religion to be true or authentic.

That is not possible, because no empirical test is possible.

 

A Buddha says that there is no self inside.

How to prove this or how to disprove this?

If somebody says, "I have seen God", and he sounds sincere,

what to do? He may be a deluded lunatic,

he may have seen a hallucination,

or he may really have seen the reality of existence.

But how to prove or disprove?

He cannot share his experience with anybody, it is inner.

It is not like an object you can place in the middle

and everybody can watch it, and everybody can experiment

and dissect it. You have to take it in faith.

He may sound absolutely sincere, and may be deluded:

he may not be cheating you, trying to cheat you,

he may be himself deceived. He may be a very true person

but he has seen a dream and thinks it is real -

sometimes dreams have the quality that they look more real

than the reality itself. Then dreams look like visions.

He has heard the voice of God

and he is so filled with it, so thrilled. But what to do?

How to prove that he has not gone mad,

that he has not projected his own mind and idea?

There is no possibility.

If there is one genuine religious man,

there are ninety-nine others all around him.

A few of them are deluded: poor, simple fellows, good at heart,

not trying to harm anybody, but still they harm.

Then there are a few cheats, robbers, deceivers:

cunning, clever people who are knowingly doing harm.

But the harm pays. You cannot find

a better business in the world than religion.

You can promise, and there is no need to deliver the goods,

because the goods are invisible.

I have heard an anecdote - in America

they invented invisible hair-pins for ladies.

One lady was purchasing them at a supermarket

and the salesman gave her a packet of invisible hair­pins.

She looked in the box and she couldn't see any.

Of course, they were invisible, so how can you see?

And she said: "But I don't see anything in it."

The man said: "They are invisible, so how can you see?"

So the lady asked: "Really? Are they invisible?"

The man said: "You are asking me? For seven days

we have been out of stock, and still we are selling them.

They are absolutely invisible."

When things are invisible,

 

you can go on selling, promising.

There is no need to deliver the goods,

because in the first place they are invisible,

so nobody can ever detect them.

And you cannot find a better business than religion,

because the goods are invisible.

I have seen many people being deceived, many people deceiving.

And the thing is so subtle

that nothing can be said for or against.

For example, I know a man

who is a simple, plain, stupid man.

But stupidity has its own qualities.

Particularly in religion,

a stupid man can look like a PARAMAHANSA.

Because he is stupid, his behavior is unexpected,

just like an enlightened man. The similarity is there.

Because he is stupid, he cannot utter

a single rational statement -just like an enlightened man.

He is foolish, he doesn't know what he is saying,

how he is behaving. Suddenly he can do anything:

and this sudden doing seems to be as if he belongs

to another world. He has epileptic fits,

but people think he is going into samadhi.

He needs electric shock treatment!

Suddenly he will go into a fit and swoon, and the followers will beat their drums and they will sing to the glory of God, that their master has gone into great samadhi, ecstasy. And his mouth starts foaming, and his saliva flows out - he is simply in a fit. He has no intelligence. But that is a quality, and there are deceivers around him who go on spreading things about the "baba".

And many things happen near him: that is the miracle. Many things happen, because many things happen of their own accord. The baba is in a swoon, and many people will feel their kundalini rising. They are projecting. There is a certain phenomenon: if you sit quietly for a long period, the body accumulates energy, and then the body starts moving, feeling restless. Sudden jerks start coming - they think this is kundalini. Kundalini is rising and when it rises in one person, how can you lag behind? Then others start. Then it is just like if one person goes to the toilet, then others feel the urge: if one person sneezes, others have a tremendous sneeze coming to them. It becomes infectious. But with so many things happening, the baba must be in samadhi. He is simply in a fit. In the East it has been my observation that only one genuine person exists, ninety-nine are false - either themselves deceived, simple, poor people; or deceivers, cunning, clever people.

This can go on, because the whole phenomenon is invisible. What to do? How to judge? How to decide? Religion is always dangerous. It is dangerous because the very terrain is mysterious, irrational. Anything goes, and there is no outer way to judge it. And there are people with their gullible minds, always ready to believe something, because they need some foothold. Without belief they feel unanchored, uprooted; they need somebody to believe in, they need somewhere to go and feel anchored and rooted.

Belief is a deep need in people. Why is it a deep need? Because without belief you feel like a chaos; without belief you don't know why you exist; without belief you cannot feel any meaning in life. No significance seems to be there. You feel like an accident with no reason at all to be here. Without belief, the question arises: Why are you? Who are you? From where are you coming? Where are you going? And there is not a single answer - without belief there is no answer. One feels simply without any meaning, an accident in existence, not needed at all, not indispensable. You will die and nobody will bother; they will all continue. You feel something is lacking, a contact with reality, a certain belief. That's why religions exist - to supply beliefs, because people need them.

A person without belief has to be very, very courageous. To live without belief is to live in the unknown, to live without belief is a great daring. Ordinary people cannot afford that. With too much daring, anguish comes in, anxiety is created. And this has to be noted: to me a real religious person is without belief. Trust he has, but not belief, and there is a vast difference between the two.

"No man of understanding can follow rules strictly. Only people who are dead can follow rules strictly b/c no rule is for you, you are your own rule"

YOU CANNOT PUT A BIG LOAD IN A SMALL BAG, NOR CAN YOU, WITH A SHORT ROPE, DRAW WATER FROM A DEEP WELL.

HAVE YOU NOT HEARD HOW A BIRD FROM THE SEA WAS BLOWN INSHORE AND LANDED OUTSIDE THE CAPITAL OF LU?

THE PRINCE ORDERED A SOLEMN RECEPTION, OFFERED THE SEA BIRD WINE IN THE SACRED PRECINCT, CALLED FOR MUSICIANS TO PLAY THE COMPOSITIONS OF SHUN, SLAUGHTERED CATTLE TO NOURISH IT. DAZED WITH SYMPHONIES, THE UNHAPPY SEA BIRD DIED OF DESPAIR.

HOW SHOULD YOU TREAT A BIRD? AS YOURSELF, OR AS A BIRD? OUGHT NOT A BIRD TO NEST IN DEEP WOODLAND OR FLY OVER MEADOW AND MARSH? OUGHT IT NOT TO SWIM ON RIVER AND POND, FEED ON EELS AND FISH, FLY IN FORMATION WITH OTHER WATERFOWL, AND REST IN, THE REEDS?

BAD ENOUGH FOR A SEA BIRD TO BE SURROUNDED BY MEN AND FRIGHTENED BY THEIR VOICES! THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH! THEY KILLED IT WITH MUSIC!

WATER IS FOR FISH, AND AIR FOR MEN. NATURES DIFFER, AND NEEDS WITH THEM. 

HENCE THE WISE MEN OF OLD DID NOT LAY DOWN ONE MEASURE FOR ALL.

There is no human nature as such – there are human natures. Each individual is a universe unto himself, you cannot make any general rules. All general rules go false. This has to be remembered very deeply, because on this path there is every possibility that you may start following rules, and once you become the victim of rules you will never come to know who you are.

You can know yourself only in total freedom – and rules are prisons. They are prisons because no-one else can make rules for you; he may have discovered the truth through these rules, but they were for him. Nature differs – they helped him but they will not help you; on the contrary, they will hinder you.

So let understanding be the only rule. Learn, grow in understanding, but don’t follow rules. Rules are dead, understanding is alive; rules will become an imprisonment, understanding will give you the infinite sky.

And every man is burdened with rules, every religion becomes nothing but rules. Because Jesus attained, because Buddha attained, their life became a rule for everybody else to follow. But nobody else is a Gautam Buddha; nobody else is a Jesus Christ. So at the most you can become a decorated carbon copy, but you will never be your authentic self. If you follow Jesus too much you will become a Christian but never a Christ, and that is the danger. To become a Christian and to miss Christ is not worth it. You can become Christ, but then Jesus cannot be your rule, only your own understanding will be the law.

Jesus followed nobody. He had a master, John the Baptist, but he never followed any rule. He felt the master, he remained with the master, he looked at the flame of the master, he absorbed the master, he was baptised by the master, but he never followed any rules. Other followers of John went against Jesus. They said: This man has betrayed you. He is going on his own, he is not following the rules strictly.

No man of understanding can follow rules strictly. Only people who are dead can follow rules strictly because no rule is for you, you are your own rule. Understand, learn from others, just to find your own rule, but remember, never impose that rule on anybody else – that is violence. Your so-called mahatmas go on enforcing rules on others because through rules they kill and destroy, and they enjoy violence. Their violence is very subtle, they don’t kill you directly, they kill you very indirectly. If somebody attacks you directly you can defend yourself. When somebody attacks you indirectly – for your own sake – you become completely a victim, you cannot even defend yourself.

Many gurus are nothing but violence, but their violence is subtle. So whenever you come near a man who wants to impose his rules on your life, wants to give you a fixed frame, wants to give you a window to look at the truth through, escape from him. There is danger. A real master will not give you a window to look at the truth through, he will bring you out under the sky. He will not give you a pattern to live by, he will simply give you the feeling, the understanding, and understanding will help you to move; understanding is free and your own.

Remember.... Because you don’t want to understand, because understanding is difficult and arduous, because understanding needs courage and understanding needs transformation, you simply become victims of those who want to give you rules. But rules are substitutes, you can get them easily. You can easily make your life a disciplined life but this will be a false thing. You may be acting, pretending, but this cannot be real.

Osho: Buddha Said "What's Next?"

Tao: The Three Treasures, Vol 3 Talks on Fragments from Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching

By OSHO

Question 2

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REACTION AND RESPONSE?

There is MUCH, a lot of difference, not only in quantity but quality. A reaction is out of the past, a response is out of the present. You REACT out of the past old patterns.

Somebody insults you: suddenly the old mechanism starts functioning. In the past people have insulted you and you have behaved in a certain way; you behave in the same way again. You are not responding to this insult and this man, you are simply repeating an old habit. You have not looked at this man and this new insult – it has a different flavour – you are just functioning like a robot. You have a certain mechanism inside you: you push the button, you say, This man has insulted me – and you react; the reaction is not to the real situation, it is something projected. You have seen the past in this man.

It happened, Buddha was sitting under a tree talking to his disciples. A man came and spat on his face. He wiped it off and he asked the man: What next? What do you want to say next? The man was a little puzzled because he himself never expected that when you spit on somebody’s face he will ask, Now, what next? He had had no such experience in his past. He had insulted people, and they had become angry, and they had reacted; or if they were cowards and weaklings they had smiled, trying to bribe the man. But Buddha was like neither; he was not angry, nor in any way offended, nor in any way cowardly, but just matter of fact; he said, What next? There was no reaction on his part.

His disciples became angry, they reacted. Buddha’s closest disciple, Anand, said, This is too much, and we cannot tolerate it; you keep your teaching with you and we will just show this man that he cannot do what he has done. He has to be punished for it. Otherwise everybody will start doing things like this.

Buddha said, You keep silent. He has not offended me, but you are offending me. He is new, a stranger, and he may have heard something about me from somebody, has formed some idea, a notion of me. He has not spat on me, he has spat on his notion, his idea of me, because he does not know me at all so how can he spit on me? He must have heard from people something about me – that this man is an atheist, a dangerous man who is throwing people off their track, a revolutionary, a corrupter – he must have heard something about me, he has formed a notion, an idea; he has spat on his own idea.

If you think on it deeply, Buddha said, he has spat on his own mind. I am not part of it, and I can see that this poor man must have something else to say – because this is a way of saying something; spitting is a way of saying something.

There are moments when you feel that language is impotent: in deep love, in intense anger, in hate, in prayer; there are intense moments when language IS impotent. Then you have to do something – when you are in deep love you kiss the person or embrace the person. What are you doing? You are saying something. When you are angry, intensely angry, you hit the person, you spit on him – you are SAYING something.

I can understand him. He must have something more to say, that’s why I’m asking, What next? The man was even more puzzled. And Buddha said to his disciples, I am more offended by you because you know me and you have lived for years with me and still you react. Puzzled, confused, the man returned home. He could not sleep the whole night. It is difficult, when you see a Buddha, it is difficult to sleep again the way you used to sleep before. Impossible. Again and again he was haunted by the experience, he could not explain it to himself, what had happened. He was trembling all over and perspiring, he had never come across such a man; he had shattered his whole mind and his whole pattern; his whole past Next morning he was back there. He threw himself at Buddha’s feet. Buddha asked him again, What next?
