Disturbances are needed

All human beings will agree on one point without any exception. The point is, there should be no disturbances in the life.Many people are often in support of disturbances stating that they help you to excel in life. But, they also accept that after these initial days of struggle and education are over, there should be no disturbances. People those who have successfully overcome all the struggles in their lives often appreciate the role of disturbances in life of a person but will soon become sad if they themselves encounter any disturbance in their life.

The fact is, disturbances are the integral part of human lives. Apart from this, they play many important roles to improve quality of many aspects of life. Disturbances may be mental also. An idea which goes against your conditioned mind is alos a disturbance. A mental disturbance is also needed as it hammers out the dust of conditioning on our minds.

Whenever we believe in some predefined idea, it means that we are going away from our own consciousness. A mental disturbance shatters such ideas and brings you back to your consciousness. Osho used to say that he liked to disturb people. The reason is very simple. When people have ready made religions with them, ready made moralities with them, each human is reduced to a fool following rule books. To make these fools humans, disturbances are needed.

Nothing good, nothing bad

A few days ago, got a chance to read a wonderful book written by the master Osho. The book had in it one very wonderful statement- “In life, there are no good decisions and bad decisions. There are only wise decisions and fool decisions.”

I was shocked by this out of earth understanding. Yes, in life, in reality, there is nothing good and at the same time there is nothing bad. All the decisions that we take are either wise or they are foolish.

At first sight, this seems to be quite senseless. But when contemplated upon, we can easily see that the good and bad do not exist. In this flow of life, your decisions are either wise or they are fool. Other than this, they carry no quality.

The good and bad are designed out by man. The definitions of good and bad differ along with the time, they are very fragile and momentary definitions. What ever we do, is either wise or it is foolish!

Fearless lives the life

Many a times, we realize that we are not living life, but just surviving. Or to be more precise, we just vegetate.  What makes he difference between living and surviving? What distinguishes these two things? Or are they just same? I think it is basically the ability to be fearless which determines if you are living or just surviving.

A person who remains under fear can never live life. His fears design his life, they govern it. He is not having anything of his own in his lie. It is designed and decided by the persons of which this man is afraid of.  Those who in true sense lived their life were always fearless.

An authentic person is always going to be different from the society. So, he will be opposed by society always. Such a person will always be troubled by society. Society will always try threaten such persons. So, you need to be fearless. You should be courageous enough to face them all, you should be bold enough to tackle them all.

To be fearless is the key for living life. Those who are under fear, just survive. Be fearless and live the life.

Discussion on ‘Osho is fraud or not’ with Mr. Yashwant Kulkarni

Mr. Yashwant Kulkarni had written some post saying Osho is a fraud. Here is a discussion which we had later on….
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – @ Nikhil….>>>>I am in no way as knowledgeable regarding osho as the author of post or you. If you think the author is wrong/one-sided, say so to him- I would learn many things from such a correspondence<<<<<

Well I am here and read all opinions cited by Mandar… I humbly wish to say that I am not in mood to held a debate on this issue with anybody coz I have satisfied myself that this old chap Osho was a Biggest Fraud ever walked under the name of a seer beyond the time. So no surprise Mandar cites so many positive opinions about Osho.

Osho was materialistic as well as psychological conman. And this comes from my own experience.

If anybody is really interested what he committed I have already given a link to coverage carried by Oregonian Newspaper of those days. Pl. See those 20 articles.6:39 pm

mandar karanjkar – All the claims made by oregonian news papers and cheap sites can be demolished by a single book named 12 days that shook the world….. @ Yashwant: i am not also in mood to debate….its useless…its matter of personal psyche, trust and understanding…..i respect your views, decision but all this makes my trust even deeper…Edit7:12 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – Thanks for saying that Mandar.

>>>this makes my trust even deeper..
Isn’t this funny…? Trust in whom and for what? He all the way through demolished all kinds of trusts and beliefs..
Let it be.. this is endless riddle.7:20 pm

mandar karanjkar – @ Yashwant: Yes, it may sound funny to you… 🙂 A meera dancing with Iktara, A Ramana Maharshi reading comics, A Majnu, A Van gogh….you may find these all funny…….
You should read a lot….you ask trust in whom…..trust does not require a object….it does not require a reason. So, the question for what is also rubbish….If you find the reason and then trust, does your trust has any value?Edit7:44 pm
mandar karanjkar – ANd I will also like to tell….spirituality is not a business of Baniya people….by bania i mean, people who are interested in calculation, who need reason to keep trust. This is business of mad people. If you can see, all the enlightened people had a madness in their blood. Buddha Followed different masters for many years leaving his wealth. I would like to ask, had he any reason to trust that there is something called Nirwana? This was his madness….in other words, his sanity…So, my humble request is, those who think spirituality is also like business and deal, where you see, verify and then sign the deal, please think again.Edit7:52 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – This is all romantic stuff.. Meera dancing with Iktara.. A Ramana Maharashi reading comics… what does it make sense whatever they may do..? He had in habit of exploiting everybody’s psyche using his articulated skills of hypnotism…. That supplied him everything for his life.. every luxury.. But you have provided by him a very sweet and idealistic excuse that he was living in luxury coz he wanted to unite spirituality and wealth.. That old chap feeding his greeds..7:52 pm
mandar karanjkar – I would like to ask you one question…what is your interest? self transformation or putting someone down?Edit7:53 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – Those questions carry no sense.. the journey I caused by him such a trivial that anything I would say will carry no sense… But in a world where we live.. such peoples are called Fraud.. and no excuses should be made.. I want only that.7:56 pm
mandar karanjkar – No…it is the only sensible question in the world…..Please answer….what is your interest?Edit7:57 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – I wanted to know if really is there any such world he wasted his life describing with those shining words… I was curious.. damn curious … I wasn’t interested in achieving it.. But I am now at such a point that I cannot set any aim to be achieved..because I don’t know anything about it.. and nobody does… only somebody pretended to be known it.. that was Osho who turned to be Fraud..8:01 pm
mandar karanjkar – I am waiting for your answer :DEdit8:02 pm
mandar karanjkar – One minute Gentleman…….Tell me, how many books of Osho you have read? How many Audio/Video you have studied? I want to ask, how much have you known the person directly, without any medium in between?Edit8:04 pm
mandar karanjkar – and please answer the question only….answer just the number and names of books……Edit8:05 pm
mandar karanjkar – this is getting interesting…i am informing you that this whole dialogue will be posted on my personal website for thousands of my readers :)Edit8:06 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – I have listened and watached and read every book, tape and cassette that is there in the market.. I was just 5 year old when he died.. so never seen him face to face.. only through these means.. How can I give names and number of books? Piles of books..8:06 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – >>>>this whole dialogue will be posted on my personal website for thousands of my readers 🙂
ok.. doesn’t matter.8:07 pm
mandar karanjkar – The whole point of Osho books is killing reasoning,which is outcome of ego. The purpose reading Osho is becoming simple…what i find is, people get furious by reading them. It means, anger still remains inside…Edit8:08 pm
mandar karanjkar – All the blames of Calder can be nullified by the book 12 Days That shook the world….have you read it???????Edit8:10 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – Oh man! Just think you have no ego.. U will turn into a stone..! each and every human action is outcome of human ego or in more simplified word his living instinct…
It doesn’t matter unless you focus on EGO… killing EGO was a very attractive reason to exploit those maddies.. Killing ego and what you will do by killing Ego?
You answer this..8:12 pm
mandar karanjkar – you say”Oh man! Just think you have no ego.. U will turn into a stone..!” would you say that Kabira was a stone? I think he was the most lively person on the earth……and asking again…have you read the book?Edit8:14 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – Don’t speak in past tense… speak of me and you.. I don’t know any Kabira… how does it influence my life if anybody lived without any ego?8:15 pm
mandar karanjkar – Okay…have you read the book 12 days that shook the world??Edit8:16 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – no..I missed it.. it was not available and I am not at all interested reading it now.. because I have my experience which came from within… So no books needed for whitewash8:21 pm
mandar karanjkar – No, you are denying facts…..please read the book and then i will consider you eligible worth discussing.Edit8:23 pm
mandar karanjkar – you are talking of experience coming from within…..i will ask how many hours you meditate………Edit8:24 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – What makes you believe that book carries truth?
I am damn sure it would have been given all lamb excuses covered in more interesting things which have no interest and effect to nobody…

Of the meditation.. that I would not like to share here.. I did and I had all those experiences of Kundalini Jagran and Tritiy Netra and all that stuff which is useless.. completely a burden caused by meditation…8:27 pm

mandar karanjkar – My experiences differ…..i meditate and it has made my life bliss……i do not know anything about third eye and kundlini…its bogus…..you have percepted your own imaginations as kundlini……real meditation makes life bliss….i am proof. you got burdens out of meditation…i got bliss…thats is what we both were looking for :)Edit8:31 pm
mandar karanjkar – thats why ii asked…what is your interest…transformation or burdenEdit8:31 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – may be you havn’t got it enough.. this is just a starting.. I too felt Bliss and all those useless things except you .. those have no bearing on the world around us..

You just remember what I am saying when your head gets pressurized and you get blocked out.. and sudden bouts of energy explosion 24×7…
Do you feel this can be imagined all the time..? do you feel body also imagining ? all those symptoms of straight eyebrows and bubble on frontal lobe and continuous flow up to head can be imagined…
Do it right boy.. We will discuss it anytime.8:38 pm

mandar karanjkar – Yes…i am doing it right Mister….and for long time……you know, Buddha has said, you get what you search for………you were in very start looking for energy explosions and third eye,,…you got them….i am not looking for them…or for anything…i am just looking…without any projection….and what is coming, is bliss….Edit8:41 pm
mandar karanjkar – I guess, you ran away midway…afraid of burdens….Edit8:42 pm
Yashwant Kulkarni, Marathi, Hindi, English Translator – Ha..ha..ha.. run away midway? Where to run away.. from my body?
It gets sowed inside body when u meditate..
Meditation has certain impact on the body.. let alone your mentality…
Mentality is hammered in the beginning.. and then body..
At the last there is nothing at all.. just a body and consciousness at the last..

This is turning just a play of words… I will not be available here for next 1.5 hour..8:46 pm

mandar karanjkar – If there is just consciousness, from where comes the urge to prove someone fraud? I do not think consciousness has any such qualities inbuilt in it….it is pure…i will be also going for my dinner out…..posting this much conversation on my site….will have a further talk soon!Edit8:48 pm

Dohe of Kabir 1 Uncategorized

Dohe of Kabir #3

तिनका कबहू न निन्दिये, जो पाव तले होय

कबहू उद् आंखो पडे, पीर घानेरी होय…

Kabir is very special. Kabir is unique. Dohe of Kabir are are even more special. It is ocean of wisdom condensed in two lines. Kabir has his unique way of telling us the things.

In these two lines, Kabir tells, do not neglect anyone. Here, Kabir says that a small particle of dust lying at your feet should never be considered as substandard. In moments it can come up with the wind and can trouble you by entering your eyes. Though the meaning is very clear, one point to be understood is, Kabir is not asking you to respect your juniors because they can trouble you in future. The point is, all these things of superiority and inferiority are just momentous. There is noting to boast about it, at the same time, there is nothing which is inferior to you.

Many a times, we find people giving much respect to people junior to them. Most of the times, fear arises that this person if by any chance is needed by me in future, I must keep good business with  him. The respect is of no value if it comes out of such subtle fear. When all the walls of greatness and smallness fall down, when no distinction remains, a deep gratitude arises for everything in the existence. When Kabir says do not neglect a dust particle, it does not mean respect it out of fear. Kabir simply wants to say be grateful towards even smallest elements of existence.

Detest the desires and get liberated!

A man used to live with his wife. His wife was much annoyed by her husband. The husband was really a very calm, quiet and thoughtful person. The wife was irritated by his patience. One beautiful morning, the wife thought she should somehow kill this dumb person and get married to someone else.

To implement this plan, she offered her husband a cup of coffee with very slight dose of poison in it. Her plan was to offer little bit of poison every day so that he will be killed in a while. The husband was quite a saint like person. He did not like coffee. But, he was a very compassionate person. He thought that for the first time his wife was offering him something with so much of affection. So, he used to accept the cup. When the wife used to have her bath, he used to detest the coffee from the cup and put it again in the coffee vessel.

After a few months, the wife was dead.

The same story applies to all human desires. Do not be their slaves. At the same time, do not repress them or do not try to reject their existence. Be detached or in other words, detest the desires! Repressing the desires will not solve the issue. You will have to accept them and yet keep away from them. Till date, religions are telling continuously to suppress desires. Suppressing is not the way. To drop the desires, you will have to detest them!

Do we solve the questions?

I remember one beautiful statement from Osho. Osho says, the question which can be answered is not the real the real question. A true question can never be answered. If we get answer for a question, the only conclusion is that the question was bogus. It was either a superficial question or a superficial answer was given.

In a permit room, a man used to come daily. He used to drink for hours. The one specialty if this man was, he used to put two french fries in his two noses while drinking. The waiter always wondered why the hell this strange man used to so daily. One day, the man again sat to drank and asked the waiter to bring french fries. Waiter said that fries are not available.

The man asked for two ladyfingers. Waiter brought them. Man put those two ladyfingers in his nose. The waiter could not resist his curiosity. He asked the gentleman.

“Why these two ladyfingers in your nose, sir?”

Waiter thought he would get some concrete answer. Instead, the gentleman answered,

“Because you do not have fries.”

All the answers that we give are as bogus as the above given answer.

A true answer never exists.True questions can never be answered. True questions can only be dropped.

Kahlil Gibran osho philosophy

Osho Insight:Things just happen……

I remember a very wonderful and also truthful statement from famous mystic, Osho. Osho says,

“A rose flower cannot say that it blooms the roses; if it could say so, it would also have been able to bloom lilies. ”

This single statement, in a single blow flushes out all the ego that we have. It just wipes out the feeling- ‘I do…….’ We do things but are we really doing it? Or they are just happening? On the same line, I remember one statement by Kahlil Gibran in which he says that we do not give birth to children; they are born through us.

When I observe life or witness life closely, I realize the reality of all above statements. Things go on happening. We do not cause them to happen. Human ego says that it is responsible for everything. Human ego says that it is the doer of all the thing. But, things are just happening. Things are not bad or good. Things are not sane or insane. Humans add them these labels. In nature, nothing is good or bad. In nature, there is no virtue and there is no vice.

On the same line, I remember one more mystic, Tilopa. Tilopa says,

“In life, when there is nothing bad and when there is nothing good, there is nothing to be desired and nothing to be avoided.”

We humans play the game of desiring and  avoiding things. We do so because, for us something is good and something is bad. Human life will be simplified a lot if we remember a simple thing- Things just happen. We do nothing. Whatever happens is neither good nor bad. Do not avoid anything and do not desire for anything.

Desire never fills the glass

If we go on filling something in a glass, the glass will soon be filled completely and we would not be able to add more. In other words, any glass has its capacity. Once it is filled up to that capacity, you cannot fill it more.

This law does not hold true for one particular glass; the glass of desire. Desire is like fire; you go on putting anything, however large it may be, desire will burn it out. If we look at our behavior, not a single desire is fulfilled though we are trying to fulfill it for years. And, if it appears that some desire if fulfilled, then we should not one point- that desire has changed its form. It is now converted into some other desire.

Long ago, when we were children, we had desires which suited that age. We had desire to collect large number of playing pebbles. Now, that desire is transformed onto desire of collecting clothes, mobile handsets, books etc. The point is, this glass of desire is never filled to the brim. The reason for unending desire is, Whenever you add something to the glass of desire, it is not that the glass is filled. The glass becomes bigger instead.

Its an honor

It has been a brutal truth that the nation or society which advances spiritually, is taken over by some other nation or some other community. Most of the times, a holy man is a failure as far as his social and economic life is concerned. Holy people are troubled the most by the society. Holy communities are harassed the most in this world. It has been always a fact that those people who go high in consciousness, they vanish from the world, they get conquered from others.

For quite a long time, this made me sad. Yesterday, while reading a book named Sand and Foam by Kahlil Gibran, I came across a wonderful line-

It an honor of the one being murdered that he is not a murderer.

I was just touched by this statement. I soon came to realize that some things in themselves are the reward. We serve food to poor people thinking that we will get the reward in the next life. The fact is, the act itself is reward. If you are expecting for the reward, then you have missed the point. All your service is useless if you are still looking for the reward. Reward was given you only at the time of service.

You are not a murderer. That is a big reward. What else you want? You are not the one who is murdering someone. So, this is an honor. This is biggest blessing you can get.

When you serve someone, you are serving and I think it is biggest reward that you are allowed to serve. What else you want? But the tragedy is, people serve others and expect some reward. In this very expecting, the reward is missed.

I often look at babies. When they dance, they dance with so much totality, that the dancing is the only reward. They do not say that we are dancing so beautifully, we at least get some reward. When any act is done with totality, the act itself is the reward. Same is the truth with those who get conquered in the world. Its an honor that they are not the one who are conquering others! And I agree, its a big reward!!
