Osho : The Master
Osho can be said to be the most controversial man who ever walked on this earth. He has shaken the entire belief system which society keeps on constructing. He freed humans in true sense- he freed them from all the dead beliefs, phony fears, programming and conditioning, greed, hatred, anger and what not.
To be very honest, if you read Osho intellectually, you are bound to find him to be some one who speaks very controversial and contradictory. It can be seen that Osho has contradicted himself many times in different books. But, if one reads Osho keeping his brain aside, with a little trust and the honest intention of transforming oneself, all the contradictions simply disappear.
Osho always used simplest possible language and conveyed truth in the funniest way. No enlightened master took so much of efforts to spread the truth.
Osho on Zen
Osho was a master of all the paths- from Tantra to Zen. Zen can be said to be the most revolutionary thing that has happened in the world of spirituality. Osho loved the way of Zen. Many of his discourse series were specific to Zen. Many authors have touched this topic of Zen, but no one with the authenticity which Osho has. Reason is, Osho is not an ordinary scholar but a master.
Enlightened beings are beyond thoughts are hence, their vision is not limited or fragmented by thoughts. Many times, they come up with striking bold insights which a common man is impossible to come up with. These insights from Osho are scattered throughout his hundreds of books. I am doing a simple job of picking them up and sharing them here- so that it is easier to find and read them.
