Close your eyes anywhere, and you can recreate the silence, the beauty, the bliss. You can even recreate the presence of the master -- that is the most difficult part, but not impossible. It depends on how intense is your love, how deep is your trust.

When one is so absolutely relaxed that there is not tension in the body or in the mind, then suddenly there is an opening of the heart. Only in total relaxation does the heart open, it becomes a flower.

Never belong to a crowd; Never belong to a nation; Never belong to a religion; Never belong to a race. Belong to the whole existence. Why limit yourself to small things? When the whole is available.

Meditation is the only thing that can transform a man into a spiritual being, without making him Hindu, Christian, Mohammedan. Meditation can release all his potential and intelligence

People say love is blind because they do not know what love is. I say unto you, only love has eyes; other than love, everything is blind.

Meditation is the art of cleaning your mirror from all the dust that the society, the religion, the educational system has poured on you, to take away everything that has not been born with you, to bring you to your absolute innocence as you were born as a child.

Only with the new is life. Life has to be fresh. Remain a learner, never become a knower. Remain open, never become closed. Remain ignorant, go on throwing the knowledge that accumulates - automatically, naturally. Each day, each moment, free yourself from all that you have known and again become a child. To become so innocent, like a child, is the way to live and to live abundantly

Consciousness means choicelessness, and to be choiceless is to be free from all desire, is to be free from all projection, is to be free from all imagination, is to be free from future.

Atisha



Atisha is one of the rare masters, rare in the sense that he was taught by three enlightened masters. It has never happened before, and never since. To be a disciple of three enlightened masters is simply unbelievable -- because one enlightened master is enough. But this story, that he was taught by three enlightened masters, has a metaphorical significance also. And it is true, it is historical too.


The three masters that Atisha remained with for many years were: first, Dharmakirti, a great Buddhist mystic. He taught him no-mind, he taught him emptiness, he taught him how to be thoughtless, he taught him how to drop all content from the mind and be contentless. The second master was Dharmarakshita, another Buddhist mystic. He taught him love, compassion. And the third master was Yogin Maitreya, another Buddhist mystic. He taught him the art of taking the suffering of others and absorbing it into your own heart: love in action.

This could happen because all these three masters were great friends. They had started their search together; while they were on the way they had remained together, and when they attained they were still together.

Atisha became a disciple of Dharmakirti. Dharmakirti said to him, "I will teach you the first principle. And for the second you go to Dharmarakshita, and for the third to Yogin Maitreya. This way you will know all the three faces of the ultimate reality, the three faces of God -- the trinity, the TRIMURTI. And this way you will learn each face from the person who is the most perfect in it."

These are the three ways people reach to the ultimate. If you reach through emptiness you attain the other two also, but your path remains basically that of emptiness -- you know more about emptiness, so emptiness will be emphasized in whatsoever you teach.

That's what happened in Buddha's case. He had attained through emptiness, hence his whole teaching became emptiness-oriented. There is no God in Buddha's teaching, because God is a thought, a content, an object -- God is the other, and Buddha had attained by dropping the other. Buddha had attained by emptying his mind totally, hence there is no place for God, no place for anything at all. His path is the purest VIA NEGATIVA.

That was also the case with Dharmakirti. He was the perfect master of emptiness, a master par excellence of emptiness. And when Atisha had learned how to be empty, the master said, "It will be better for you to go to Dharmarakshita for the next step, because he has attained from a totally different path. Just as you can reach Everest from different sides, he has reached from a totally different path, the path of compassion. I can also teach you the path of compassion, but my knowing about that path is only known from the top.

"I have reached through the path of emptiness. Once you reach the top, you can look down at all the paths, they are all available to your vision. But to follow a path in its different dimensions, to follow a path in all its details, small details, is a totally different thing." And to look at it from a helicopter or from the mountain-top is certainly a different vision; it is a bird's-eye view.

And Dharmakirti said, "If there had been nobody available here, I would have taught you the other too. But when a man like Dharmarakshita is just here, my neighbor, living in another cave just nearby, it is better you go to him."

First one has to become empty, utterly empty. But you have not to cling to emptiness, otherwise your life will never know the positive expression of religion. Your life will miss the poetry, the joy of sharing; you will remain empty. You will have a kind of freedom, but your freedom will be only freedom from, it will not be freedom FOR. And unless a freedom is both -- freedom from and freedom for -- something is missing, something is lacking; your freedom will be poor. Just to be free from is a poor kind of freedom.

The real freedom starts only when you are free for. You can sing a song and you can dance a dance and you can celebrate and you can start overflowing. That's what compassion is.

Man lives in passion. When the mind disappears, passion is transformed into compassion. Passion means you are a beggar with a begging-bowl; you are asking and asking for more and more from everybody; you are exploiting others. Your relationships are nothing but exploitations -- cunning devices to possess the other, very clever strategies to dominate. When you are living in the mind, in passion, your whole life is power politics. Even your love, even your social service, even your humanitarian works, are nothing but power politics. Deep down, there is a desire to be powerful over others.

The same energy, when the mind is dropped, becomes compassion. And it takes a totally new turn. It is no longer begging; you become an emperor, you start giving. Now you have something -- you had it always, but because of the mind, you were not aware of it. The mind was functioning like darkness around you, and you were unaware of the light within. The mind was creating an illusion of being a beggar, while all the time you had been an emperor. The mind was creating a dream; in reality you never needed anything. All had already been given. All that you need, all that you can need, is already the case.

God is within you, but because of the mind -- mind means dreaming, desiring -- you never look within, you go on rushing outwards. You keep yourself in the background, your eyes are turned towards the outside, they have become focused there. That's what the mind is all about: focusing the eyes on the outside.

And one has to learn how to unfocus them from there -- how to make them loose, less rigid, more liquid, so that they can turn inwards. Once you have seen who you are, the beggar disappears. In fact it had never existed; it was just a dream, an idea.

The mind is creating all your misery. With the mind gone, misery is gone, and suddenly you are full of energy. And the energy needs expression, sharing; it wants to become a song, a dance, a celebration. That is compassion: you start sharing.

Atisha learned compassion from Dharmarakshita. But compassion has two faces. One is inactive compassion: the meditator sits silently in his cave, showering his compassion over the whole existence. But it is a very inactive kind of compassion. You have to go to him to partake of it, he will not come to you. You will have to go to the mountains to his cave to share his joy; he will not come to you. He will not move in any way, he will not take any active step. He will not flow towards others, he will not seek and search for the people with whom he can share his dance. He will wait.

This is a feminine kind of compassion: just like a woman waits -- she never takes the initiative, she never goes to the man. She may love the man, but she will never be the first to say "I love you." She will wait; she will hope that one day or other, sooner or later, the man will propose. Woman is inactive love, passive love. Man is active love, man takes the initiative.

And in the same way, compassion has two possibilities: the feminine and the masculine. From Dharmarakshita, Atisha learned the feminine art of being in love with existence. One more step was needed: Dharmarakshita told him, "Go to Yogin Maitreya" -- these three masters were all living together in the same vicinity -- "Go to Yogin Maitreya and learn how to transform the baser energy into active energy, so love becomes active."

And once love is active, compassion is active, you have passed through all the three dimensions of truth -- you have known all. You have known utter emptiness, you have known compassion arising, you have known compassion showering. Life is fulfilled only when all these three have happened.

Because Atisha learned under three enlightened masters, he is called Atisha the Thrice Great. Nothing more is known about his ordinary life, when and where exactly he was born. He existed somewhere in the eleventh century. He was born in India, but the moment his love became active he started moving towards Tibet, as if a great magnet were pulling him there. In the Himalayas he attained; then he never came back to India.

He moved towards Tibet, his love showered on Tibet. He transformed the whole quality of Tibetan consciousness. He was a miracle-worker; whatsoever he touched was transformed into gold. He was one of the greatest alchemists the world has ever known.

These "Seven Points of Mind Training" are the fundamental teaching that he gave to Tibet -- a gift from India to Tibet. India has given great gifts to the world. Atisha is one of those great gifts. Just as India gave Bodhidharma to China, India gave Atisha to Tibet. Tibet is infinitely indebted to this man.

A person who lives moment to moment, who goes on dying to the past, is never attached to anything. Attachment comes from the accumulated past. If you can be unattached to the past every moment, then you are always fresh, young, just born. You pulsate with life and that pulsation gives you immortality. You are immortal, only unaware of the fact

My own approach is to help make your journey a joy. Not only the end -- the spiritual person is only concerned with the end. He is in a hurry, impatient to reach the end; he does not bother what is happening on the roadside. And millions of flowers bloom there too, and birds sing songs and the sun rises and in the night it is full of stars. And all this too is beautiful. Let the journey also be beautiful. When you can pass through these enchanted lands, why not? But your concern should basically be for more consciousness. And whatsoever that consciousness makes luminous for you, follow it. Let your consciousness be the only law. I don't give you any other law

Osho, bringing the sex-vs.-spirituality controversy center stage in our time with his runaway book From Sex to Superconsciousness. He propounded the view that orgasm is a mini and temporary samadhi. It can transport you to a state of rapture. The mind becomes devoid of thought, the egocentric view of life disappears and we step outside of time into the timeless a 'now' of bliss. Very much like samadhi or pure consciousness. This line of thinking was so revolutionary for his time tat he attracted a lot of flak and notoriety

...Настоящий сок жизни — внутри вас.
В это самое мгновение вы можете
обратиться внутрь себя,
заглянуть в себя.
Не нужно никакого поклонения,
не нужно никакой молитвы.
Все, что нужно, — это безмолвное
путешествие в собственное существо.
Я называю это медитацией,
безмолвным паломничеством в существо.
И в то мгновение, как вы находите свой центр,
вы нашли центр всего существования...

Even when you are asleep, the mind is functioning ! It is dreaming; it is still thinking; it is still in worries and anxieties ! It is preparing for the next day... an underground preparation is going on ! This is the state of no-meditation. Just the opposite is meditation. When there is no traffic and thinking has ceased... when no thought moves, no desire stirs... you are utterly silent ...that silence is meditation ! In that silence, truth is known, and never otherwise

There is no need to 'change' your breath! Leave it as it is, natural; do not change. But when you breathe in, breathe consciously; let your consciousness move with the in-going breath. And when the breath goes out, let your consciousness move out with it. Move with the breath! Let your attention be with the breath; flow with it.

Но сей;час всё, что вы видите, – не истина, а ложь. Что такое мираж? Лживая проекция. Но, как только увидишь… Хоть на долю секунды… нужно лишь позволить себе это! Повсюду перед тобой предстает невероятное благословение – в облаках, на солнце и на земле.

Мир прекрасен. Но я говорю сейчас не о вашем мире, я говорю о своем мире. Ваш мир уродлив, он создан вашим “я”, это мир проекций. Вы используете подлинную действительность как экран, на котором отражаются ваши собственные представления о мире.

Когда я говорю, что мир реален, это невероятный, чудесный мир – лучащийся бесконечностью, наполненный светом и радостью. Это вечный праздник – я говорю о своем мире. Он может стать и вашим, нужно лишь проснуться.

Той ночью я стал пустым, а потом наполнился. Я прекратил быть и стал самим бытием. Той ночью я погиб и родился заново. Но тот, кто родился, не имел ничего общего с тем, кто умер. Не было никакой связи. На вид я не изменился, но между мной прежним и мной новым не было ничего общего. Гибнущий гибнет до конца, от него ничего не остается.

Я пережил много смертей, но с этой ни одна не сравнится. Все минувшие смерти были неполными.

Иногда умирает тело, иногда – часть разума, иногда – часть эго, но личность остается. Многократно обновленная, многократно перекрашенная – что-то меняется тут, что-то здесь, – но сама личность остается, сохраняется некая непрерывность.

Но той ночью смерть была полной и окончательной. Это день моей смерти и день моего единения с Богом.

Он гов;орит о том, что есть иная действительность, и стоит ее постичь, как эта так называемая реальность просто блекнет, становится нереальной. Сравнение возможно только после пробуждения к высшей реальности, а не до того.

Во сне реально сновидение. Каждую ночь мы видим сны, но каждое утро говорим, что они были нереальны, но на следующую ночь, когда мы спим, сновидения снова становятся явью. Во сне очень трудно понять, что это сон. А утром это очень легко. В чем же причина? Ты остаешься собой. Во сне есть только одна действительность. С чем ее сравнить? Кто возьмется утверждать, что реально? По сравнению с чем? Реальность только одна. Все точно так же нереально, как и все прочее, и потому сравнение невозможно. Утром, когда ты открываешь глаза, перед тобой уже другая реальность, и теперь ты можешь говорить, что сновидение было нереальным. Сновидение становится нереальным при сравнении с явью.

Но есть и пробуждение… И по сравнению с реальностью этого пробуждения нереальной становится привычная действительность.

Той ночью я впервые постиг смысл понятия майя. Конечно, я и раньше знал это слово, но совершенно не сознавал его смысла. Я воспринимал его так же, как и вы сейчас, но никогда прежде не понимал по-настоящему. Разве можно понять, не пережив? Той ночью распахнулись двери новой действительности, незнакомого измерения. И там была она – иная реальность, особая реальность, настоящая реальность, как угодно будет называть. Называйте ее Богом, истиной, дхармой, дао – как угодно. Она не имеет названия. Но она была там – прозрачная, но в то же время столь осязаемая… Она чуть не задушила меня. Ее было слишком много, я еще не мог вобрать в себя столько всего…

У меня возникло сильное желание выскочить из комнаты, выбежать под открытое небо. Я задыхался. Слишком много всего! Я погибал! Мне казалось, что, если задержусь тут хоть на секунду, эта реальность меня задушит. И я выскочил из дому, помчался во двор. Мне хотелось просто оказаться под открытым небом, увидеть звезды, деревья и землю… быть на воле. Стоило мне выйти – и удушье тут же прошло. Моя комнатушка была слишком мала для такого величественного события. Для такого события даже звездное небо – слишком тесная крыша. Оно больше неба. Даже небо – не предел. Но так мне все равно стало легче.

Я направился к ближайшему саду. Даже походка моя стала иной. Я шел так, будто сила тяготения исчезла. Шел я, бежал или просто парил – трудно сказать. Тяготения не было, я ничего не весил, меня словно влекла какая-то сила. Я оказался в объятиях какой-то неведомой энергии.

Запомните, с того дня я никогда уже не был по-настоящему в своем теле. Меня с телом соединяет лишь тончайшая нить. И меня все время удивляет, что Целое почему-то хочет, чтобы я оставался тут – а я тут уже не сам по себе, не по своей воле. Воля Целого держит меня здесь, она позволяет мне еще немного побыть на этом берегу. Возможно, через меня Целое хочет с вами чем-то поделиться.

С того дня мир стал нереальным. Передо мной открылся другой мир. Но когда я называю этот мир нереальным, я не имею в виду, что эти деревья не настоящие. Они совершенно реальны; нереально то, какими вы их видите. Сами по себе они самые настоящие – они существуют в Боге, они есть в абсолютной реальности, – но то, какими вы их видите… Вы не видите их по-настоящему. Вы видите нечто другое – мираж.

Вы окружили себя собственными снами, и это сновидение будет тянуться, пока вы не проснетесь. Мир нереален, потому что известный вам мир – это мир ваших снов. А когда просыпаешься, перед тобой возникает новый мир, настоящий.

Нельзя говорить: есть Бог, а есть мир. Бог и есть мир, но это понимаешь, только когда твои глаза ясны, не запорошены сном, не затянуты дымкой сновидений. Когда взор ясен, когда обострена чувствительность, становится очевидно, что есть только Бог.

Иногда Бог – это зеленое дерево, иногда – яркая звезда, иногда – кукушка, а иногда цветок. Бог – порой ребенок, порой река, но всё, что есть, – это Бог. Как только начинаешь по-настоящему видеть, вокруг – только Бог.

Вот по;чему нам так трудно понять, когда Будда и Шанкара говорят, что мир – это майя, иллюзия. Мы знаем только этот, наш мир, нам не с чем его сравнить. Нам известна только одна действительность. О чем говорят эти люди? Какая-то майя, иллюзия… Есть лишь одна реальность. Их слова не поймешь, пока не постигнешь подлинную реальность. До той поры их слова остаются теориями, хитроумными гипотезами. Может, это просто заумная философия такая: “Весь мир – иллюзия”?

На Западе было так. Беркли заявил, что мир нереален, когда прогуливался со своим приятелем, человеком весьма логичным. Этот его приятель был почти скептиком. После этих слов он молча поднял камень и больно стукнул Беркли по голове. Беркли завопил, кровь сочилась из царапины, а его друг-скептик сказал: “Так что, мир по-прежнему нереален? Ты ведь сам так сказал, верно? Почему же ты кричишь, ведь этот камень нереален. Чего хвататься за голову и корчиться от боли? Все вокруг нереально!”

Такие люди не в состоянии понять, что имеет в виду Будда, когда говорит, что Вселенная – мираж. Он не утверждает, что можно ходить сквозь стены. Он не говорит, что мы можем питаться камнями и нет никакой разницы, что ты ешь – хлеб или камни. Нет, дело совсем не в этом.

Он говорит о том, что есть иная действительность, и стоит ее постичь, как эта так называемая реальность просто блекнет, становится нереальной. Сравнение возможно только после пробуждения к высшей реальности, а не до того.

Уснул; я часов около восьми, но это было мало похоже на сон. Теперь я понимаю, что имеет в виду Патанджали, когда говорит, что самадхи напоминает сон. Разница только в одном: в самадхи ты одновременно спишь и бодрствуешь, спишь и не спишь. Тело расслаблено, каждая клеточка организма спит, но в тебе пылает огонек осознанности… ясный, не дающий копоти. Ты начеку, но расслаблен, не напряжен, но в полном сознании. Тело покоится в глубоком сне, а сознание возносится на пик активности. Так соединяются вершина сознания и впадина телесного покоя.

Я уснул. Странный это был сон: тело спит, а я бодрствую. Это было так странно… Тебя будто разорвали на две части, растянули в двух направлениях, разнесли по двум измерениям, но два полюса при этом были так обострены, словно я одновременно оказался обоими… Положительное и отрицательное, сон и бодрствование, жизнь и смерть слились в одно. Это был тот миг, когда сливаются творец и сотворенное.

Состояние было сверхъестественным. В первый раз оно потрясает до самых глубин души. После этого переживания тебе уже никогда не стать прежним. Оно приносит совершенно новые взгляды на жизнь, делает тебя совсем другим.

Около полуночи мои глаза открылись вдруг сами собой… во всяком случае, я не прилагал к этому никаких усилий. Что-то нарушило мой сон. Я ощутил рядом с собой, в своей комнате, чье-то присутствие. Моя комнатка была совсем крошечной, но я чувствовал повсюду вокруг биение жизни, мощные вибрации. Я словно попал в глаз тайфуна и захлебывался в величественной буре света, радости и блаженства.

Это было так реально, что нереальным стало все остальное: стены комнаты, весь дом, само мое тело. Все стало нереальным, ведь лишь теперь я впервые видел подлинную действительность.
