Zen: The Quantum Leap from Mind to No-mind  OSHO <4>

<3>よりつづく


Zen: The Quantum Leap from Mind to No-mind <4>
OSHO(Author) Swami Anand Robin (Editor) Nov 1988 Publisher: Rebel Publishing House Hardcover 258 pages

Vol.2 No.1004★★★★★
Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

Zen is not in the anecdotes. It is just like a fragrance around a roseflower: you cannot catch hold of it, but you can smell it. Zen needs sensitivity - not intellectual, not of the mind, but of your total being.

These anecdotes from different angles point to the same thing. p110

In the first place, nobody can solve anybody else's problem. Deep down you don't have a problem at all, because you are the answer. How can you have a problem? The mind is full of problems, but the mind is not your reality.

Yakusan must have been a very compassionate master. He said, "I WILL SOLVE IT AT THE NEXT LECTURE."

He is giving time to the monk to see the point. The next lecture means tomorrow, so it means that which never comes. "Drop the problem here! Don't wait for the answer to come from outside sometime in the future."

But Yakusan is known to be very kind. He said, "I WILL SOLVE IT AT THE NEXT LECTURE."

THAT EVENING, WHEN ALL THE MONKS HAD GATHERED IN THE HALL, YAKUSAN CALLED OUT LOUDLY, "THE MONK WHO TOLD ME THIS MORNING HE HAD A PROBLEM, COME UP HERE IMMEDIATELY!"

AS SOON AS THE MONK STEPPED FORWARD TO STAND IN FRONT OF THE AUDIENCE, THE MASTER LEFT HIS SEAT AND ROUGHLY TOOK HOLD OF THE MONK.

"LOOK!" HE SAID. "THIS FELLOW HAS A PROBLEM!"

HE THEN PUSHED THE MONK ASIDE AND RETURNED TO HIS ROOM WITHOUT GIVING THE EVENING LECTURE.

He has answered in that immediacy, when he called the monk to come before the audience.

AS SOON AS THE MONK STEPPED FORWARD TO STAND IN FRONT OF THE AUDIENCE, THE MASTER LEFT HIS SEAT AND ROUGHLY TOOK HOLD OF THE MONK.

"LOOK, THIS FELLOW HAS A PROBLEM!"

This is a very strange thing, because one cannot have a problem! One simply is. All problems are imposed by others on you: you are born as innocence. Innocence has immense clarity to see the wonder that surrounds you, but it has no problems. The questioning will be taught at a later stage, because without questions the mind cannot exist. Mind is nothing but another name for questioning.

You can try a small thing as an experiment. If you go backwards in time, you will stop somewhere near the age of three or four. Beyond that your memory has not recorded anything. It simply means the first three or four years you lived in tremendous innocence, surrounded by the beauty of the world, of the people, of the trees, of the ocean; not asking why, but simply being together with whatever surrounds you, enjoying, rejoicing, dancing. Mind has not come in yet.

Our whole educational system is programmed to create the mind in you and to destroy the wonder, to destroy the poetry of your life and to force you to understand the prose and the prosaic.

Yakusan was right when he told the audience, "LOOK, THIS FELLOW HAS A PROBLEM!" Not even the bamboos have problems. This is a strange fellow! And standing before a silent audience of disciples, the poor monk must have forgotten at least for a split second his mind and his problem.

This was the strategy of Yakusan; he has given the answer without uttering even a single word.

Without even asking, "What is the problem?" he has answered it. And because he has answered a great problem, HE THEN PUSHED THE MONK ASIDE. By his gesture he is saying, "Push the mind aside!" AND RETURNED TO HIS ROOM WITHOUT GIVING THE EVENING LECTURE. Returning to his room simply means returning to his inner being, indicating to everybody, "Return to your inner being."

Now, there is nothing else to be said. In a small anecdote so much is throbbing, and with so much intensity. If you can be immediate, you can get the taste of your own being. You can feel this silence.p111

1)オーディオがぶっ壊れた。ある朝、何気なくラジオのスイッチが入らなくなった。あれれ、と思ったが放置しておいた。ヒューズでも飛んだんだろう。最初は軽くみていた。近々定期点検もあるしな、と気軽な気分だった。だが、しかし、ことはそう簡単ではなかった。修理は簡単ではなく、オーディオ本体に送って修理してもらうには、何週間かと、数万円かかる、という話だった。

2)定期点検では軽く見た限りでは原因はわからない。ヒューズは飛んでないと。電線もつながっていると。後日、時間を取ってみるから、半日時間をくれというので、ばらしてもらうことになった。そして見てもらったところ、なんと部品が壊れているので、部品交換が必要だとのたまわる。お値段は、というと10万はかかるだろう、という。

3)おいおい、いい加減にせいよ、すでに10年10万キロを超えたわが愛車、いくら重症だと言って、修理代10万はないだろう。それでは、車両本体下取り価格より、ひょっとすると高いのではないか?(# ゚Д゚)

4)中古部品で間に合わないのか、と尋ねると、その工員は、中古部品でも工賃込みで5万はくだらないだろう、とおっしゃる。ああ、こいつらやる気ないな。担当の営業社員にも電話しておいたが、なんだか解決しそうにない。

5)そこで、部品番号を教えてもらい、ネットで探してみると、なんだ、あるではないか。ディラーでは100KYと言っていたレシーバー本体だが、ネットじゃ2~3KYで流通している。あれ~~、40分の1の値段ではないか。最低価格でなくても、かなり豪華なバージョンでも、10分の1程度を出すのであれば、すくなくとも、部品は潤沢に流通している。

6)あとはやるか、やらないかである。いや、工員にまかせないで、自分でやるか、ってことだ。

7)ネットで動画を探してみれば、あるある、カーキチはいっぱいいるのだ。この程度のことなら、自分でやることができるのだ。すごい。圧倒された。

8)そこで、私も自分でやってみることにしたが、今は年度末年度初めの多忙時期。こんなことに集中して、無駄な時間を取られていてはいけない。後日やることにする。

9)そのためには、すこし時間をかけて、周辺情報も集めておこう。どうせぶっ壊れたレシーバーだが、どうして壊れたのか、その原因も調べておく必要があるし、いい加減に修理して、他の部分も壊してしまうようでは、元も子もない。ことは慎重に、丁寧に運ぶ必要がある。

10)ということで、ごちそうは、後回しじゃ。どうせ、コロナで自宅待機。ステイホームだ。時間はたっぷりある。連休だな、決行は。

草はひとりでに生える OSHO ナルタン翻訳

71fhdexabtl

草はひとりでに生える
OSHO (著), ナルタン(日家ふじ子) (翻訳) 2013/12/11 出版社 : OEJ Books 日本語 単行本 : 384ページ 初版 1978/08 ふみくら書房
No.4495★★★★★

1)ナルタンの訃報がこの2021/04/20に入った。正確な状況、日程はわからないが、そのSNSに書いた、私のコメントだけ、ここに抜き書きしておく。

2)いつか私たちが仙台で借りていた、サウナを改造した50坪ワンフロアの瞑想センターに来てくれました。

当時まだアラサーだったと思うけど、とっても落ち着いたお姉さんに見えました。3日間の泊まり込みのグループでした。あれからすでに40年。ありがとうございました。Love💏

インナーラビリンス.シリーズ続編を楽しみにしていました。出版社の関係で遅れているとか聞いたけど、もし原稿が残っているのなら、ぜひなんらかの方法で公開していただきたいです。
草生えてあなたは瞑(ねむ)る常世かな 把不住

ご冥福をお祈りいたします 🙏

3)まったく。あるように聞いたけど、どうなのかな?

4)逆に言うと、あの時しかナルタンに会ってないんだよね。ゲーハは覚えてた。確か男性の外人パートナーと一緒だった。名前は覚えてないけど。

5)ヨシローもいたと思うけどなー、あの頃ヨシローは結構忙しかったから、すれ違ったかな。たしかに最近は昔の記憶がまだらになってきてる(爆笑)。そろそろお互い回顧録でも残しておきますか。😉

6)そうそうニラーブだったと思う。けっこうサムライな感じだったな。
7)この辺になると、けっこうまだらで、ゲーハと私との記憶もズレてくる。しかし、私の記憶では、リバーシング系でもなければ、ビパサナ系でもない。だとすると、エンカウンター系となるよね。もちろんヘビーな感じではなく、ソフト・エンカウンター。決してナルタンの特性を生かした感じとはいいがたく、当時の実験的な、いくつかの要素を加味した、中間的なグループだった、と思います。
もちろん、ミーラのようなアート系でもなかったな。

8)どういう形でもいいから、ぜひ拝読したいですね。もちろん続刊というシリーズになればなおいいけど。

9)そういえば、ラジネーシという言い方を、ラジニーシに言い換えたのも、ナルタンだったね。

10)1975年8月にプラブッダによって手書きのニューズレター「存在の詩」がでてから
1977年4月にめるくまーるから単行本として出版されるまでは一貫して ラジネーシだった。1978年3月「究極の旅」もそうだった。しかし、1978年8月にふみくら書房「草はひとりで生える」から、ナルタン流ラジニーシが始まった。
もう3年間もラジネーシで慣れていたからね、ラジニーシという呼称が出た時には、のけぞった。ふみくらのブックデザインもいまいちだったので、ええ、古くせー、と思ったよ、最初は。
でもいつのまにか、ラジニーシに統一されたね。こちらの方が、発音に近かったのでしょう。
OSHOになってからは、もうどうでもいいことだけど(微笑)

11)ああ、そうですね、この件もあった。最初は暴走する(爆)プラブッダ訳を、ナルタン訳が牽制、修正するような役割だったかもw。
そういえば、めるくまーる社の和田禎男さんのことなら、「ルポ現代のスピリチュアリズム」という本にレポートがありましたね。

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

UNGO DOYO WAS THE CHIEF DISCIPLE OF TOZAN. WHEN HE FIRST MET TOZAN, HE WAS ASKED, "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?"

HE ANSWERED, "DOYO."

TOZAN SAID, "TELL ME TRANSCENDENTALLY!"

UNGO REPLIED, "SPEAKING TRANSCENDENTALLY, MY NAME IS DOYO."

TOZAN SAID, "WHEN I SAW MY MASTER, MY ANSWER WAS NO DIFFERENT."

UNGO REMAINED WITH TOZAN MANY YEARS. TOZAN NEVER HAD LESS THAN ONE THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED DISCIPLES, OF WHOM TWENTY-EIGHT WERE ENLIGHTENED.

AFTER UNGO HAD REALIZED HIS OWN ENLIGHTENMENT AND BECAME A MASTER, A MONK ASKED HIM A QUESTION.

UNGO SAID, "YOU ARE A FOOL!"

THE MONK SAID, "SO ARE YOU!"

"WHAT IS THE MEANING OF 'FOOL'?" ASKED UNGO.

THE MONK DANCED.

OFF HE WENT, AND UNGO PRAISED HIM, IN HIS ABSENCE, SAYING, "AFTER ALL, EVERYBODY IS OUT TO GET SOMETHING, THOUGH OF COURSE ZEN-GETTING IS A NO- GETTING."

ON ANOTHER OCCASION, AN OFFICIAL SAID TO UNGO: "THE WORLD-HONORED ONE HAD A SECRET MESSAGE; MAHAKASHYAPA DID NOT KEEP IT A SECRET. WHAT IS THIS SECRET WORD OF BUDDHA?"

UNGO CALLED TO HIM, "YOUR HONOR!"

HE ANSWERED, "YES?"

UNGO SAID, "YOU UNDERSTAND?"

"NO," HE REPLIED.

UNGO SAID, "IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, THAT IS BUDDHA'S SECRET WORD; IF YOU DO, THAT IS MAHAKASHYAPA'S NOT KEEPING IT A SECRET."  p209

1)ヤリスに乗ってきた。自分の車を修理に出したので、代車として提供された一台だ。まずはっきり言っておく。こりゃあ、だめだ。グレードもあろう、ドライブコースの問題もあっただろう。タイミングもあっただろうし、我がドライビング・テクニックの問題もあろう。しかし、ヤリスは落第だ。

2)①燃費が悪い。5時間も80から100キロ時速で走行して、平均燃費15.5キロ。これじゃだめだ。我が車なら軽く25キロ/リッターはいく。

②無駄に車高が高く、風切りが悪い。横風をまともに受ける。フラフラだ。ペラペラな感じ。

③内装の質感悪し。デザイン悪し。ナビはまずまずだったが、我が車の後付け廉価版よりマシ、というレベルだろう。

④エンジン音うるさし。エンジン音を聞きたいという向きもあるだろうが、これはだめだ。障子の陰から、雑音が聞こえてくる感じ。この感性で、スポーツカーにも乗ってみたい、というこちらの嗜好も、どうかしているのだろうが、ストレスが溜まる。

⑤左腕の肘掛がない。これもだめ。これは私が疲れる原因の大きな要素。

⑥シートもイマイチ。腰が痛くなった。つうか、突き上げられる振動で、ケツ肉が痛めつけられている感じ。ダメだ。

⑦今日はロングドライブだったが、街場の買い物はどうか? いや、外観も良くない。いつもこいつに付きまとわれるのか、と思うと、ゲンナリする。お供は、もっと大人しい、静かな、おっとりした感じがいい。

⑧デザインはスバル系がいいと思うが、燃費がなぁ。マツダはいいのはロードスターだけだ。でも、ロードスターでは、孫の幼稚園のお迎えも不向きだし、市民農園の鶏糞運びにも不向きだ。パッソは5人乗りで小さくて安いからいいかな、と思ったが、友人がいうには、ハンドルがガタガタ振動するぞ、という。

⑨結局、私の車のオーディオは直らず、部品交換で10万かかるという。おい、中古部品はないのか、というと、今探しているが、新品の半値くらいだよ、という。ええ? そんなに重症なの?  レシーバーって、そんなに壊れるのかなぁ。

⑩私としては、20万キロ位乗ってやろうと思っていたお気に入りだったのだが、その半分で挫折か。10年10万キロ、とはよく言うが、ほんとその通りだな。これからもどんどん故障が出てくるのだろう。これまで乗った車もそうだった。

11 、もう一回車検を通してやろう、と思っていたのだが、もうダメかなぁ。駆動系は問題ないので、まだ乗れるはずだし、電気系統もマズマズだ。だけど、情報系も大事だよなぁ。ラジオも、交通情報も必要だ、

12、で、やっぱり、ヤリスもダメで、パッソもダメで、ロードスターもダメで、スバル系もダメで、中古も気に食わん、となると、はてさてどうなる我がカーライフ。それなりのそこそこの車が、必要なんだなぁ。

13、これぞと言う、真っ当なEVが出れば、多少無理しても、乗り換えるのだが、それがない。ヤッパ、一回車検通して、あと二年待つかぁ。秋まで、悩みが、一つ増えた _| ̄|○

人生~ 瞑想でたどる仏教 蓑輪 顕量 <1>

A140fl52fl
「人生~ 瞑想でたどる仏教」心と身体を観察する NHKこころの時代~宗教・人生(NHKシリーズ NHKこころの時代)  <1>
蓑輪 顕量 (著) 2021/03 NHK出版 日本語 ムック : 160ページ
No.4494★★★★☆


1)人生の苦しみを見つめ続けた2500年、その歴史を「瞑想」でひもとく
 マインドフルネスをはじめ世界中で流行する「瞑想」。その源流にはブッダがおこなった「心と身体の観察」があった。生きる苦悩を乗り越えることを目指したブッダは、瞑想で何を悟ったのか。そこから2500年、仏教はブッダの瞑想をどのように受容・発展させてきたのか。縁起、止観、空、念仏――瞑想を通して各時代ごとの歴史的なつながりを押さえれば、その言葉の意味が驚くほど理解できる。仏教が受け継いできた「自分の心と向き合う方法」を、仏教思想の第一人者とともに探る。(テキスト説明)

2)書店でこのようなテキストに出会うと、衝動的に購入してしまうのだが、今回はスルーした。いろいろな理由があったが、どうも今回はこのようなテキストはうるさいと感じるのではないか、自分ではそう判断した。それもこれも番組をみてからだな、と思った。

3)さっそく録画だけはしておいたが、すぐに再生してみようとはしなかった。このような番組は、自分の中で、準備ができていないと、ミスマッチ感が強くなってしまうからだ。まだ、第一回だけの録画なので、次回以降の番組を見ながら、さらに興味惹かれるものならば、全体を視聴するようになるかもしれない。

4)この番組は、テキストと放送内容が大きく違うことが多いので、どちらが素晴らしい、ということもないのだが、いずれにせよ、テレビ番組とかテキストは、どうしても、伝えようとしてくるので、言葉や概念、外在的なとらえ方が表面化し、どうしても哲学化してしまう。

5)せっかく録画したものだから、すぐ削除してしまわないで、もうすこし時間が経過したら、おちついた心で判断することとしよう。

「帰郷」  藤沢周平 原作 杉田成道 監督 <3>

<2>からつづく

帰郷 
杉田成道 (監督)  藤沢周平(原作)2020年作品 仲代達矢 (出演), 常盤貴子 (出演), 形式: DVD 言語 : 日本語 製品サイズ : 30 x 10 x 20 cm; 80 g EAN : 4907953283978 メディア形式 : 色, ドルビー 時間 : 1 時間 59 分
★★★★☆

1)訃報が続いている。ひとりは、小中学校を通じて同学年だった女性。同窓会の幹部だったので、一貫して人生の消息をそれなりに把握してきた仲間である。突然死で、このコロナ禍で、名目は家族葬で、一般の弔問客(私も含む)は、事前の焼香のみ、という条件だった。しかし、町の旧家の長でもと公務員OBとなれば、密葬とはいかず、たくさんの弔問客がいた。

2)同窓会の仲間内も駆け付けたが、それこそ50年ぶりに再会という人物も何人かいた。いや~、実にこれが分からなかった。お互いマスクをかけていたからなおのことなのだが、マスクを取ってくれても分からなかった。私は、ちょっと前歯を治療中で、お恥ずかしい顔なので、マスクを外さなかったが、彼女は私の目だけでは思い出してくれなかった。

3)名前を言って、初めて思い出してくれたが、かといって、もうすでに過ぎ去った50年という時間は縮めようがなかった。それなりの近況を交換し、そそくさと儀式の中で別れた。おそらくこれから人生の中で、近くに住んでいるにも関わらず、もう再開することもなかろう。私たちの寿命だって、お互いそれほど残されているわけではない。

4)そうそう、私たちの同窓生では、いろいろな仲間がいるが、某金融機関の頭取をしている人物がいる。彼とは、中学時代にお互いの家を行き来したり、同じ運動部でのレギュラー仲間だったが、成人してから再会したことはなかった。彼も隣町に住んでいる限り、どこかで再開してもよかったようなものだが、その機会はなかった。

5)ところがひょんなことで、彼は企業のトップになったものだから、あちこちのメディアに顔をだすようになって、この数年、顔を名前が一致した。名前は忘れるわけがないのだが、へ~、彼もまた50年も経過すれば、こんな顔になるのか、と思った。いくつかのメディアの顔写真などを総合して、私の中では、彼の立体的人物像が構成された。

6)そんな折、とあるコンサートホールで、ばったり彼と出会った。私はすぐに分かった。なにせ最近の情報を構成した立体的像があったから、気安く声をかけてしまった。ところが彼のほうからは、私がだれかわからなかった。幸い一緒だった夫人が私を覚えていてくれて(PTA役員としてお互い面識があった)、彼も納得したようだ。毎年年賀状だけの交換だけの交流だったが、縁は切れてはいないものの、お互い、年月の彫刻は、立派に、よくも悪くも刻まれているものだな。

7)それと、最近、OSHOサニヤシンで、翻訳者であり、設計家でもあるマ・アナンド・ナルタン(「インナー・ラビリンス」著者)が亡くなった、という訃報が流れた。詳細は不明だが、彼女との個人的な縁も40年ぶりのものだった。当時の記憶もまだらになっていて、ああ、そんなことがあったなぁ、という記憶だけになってしまっている。彼女には一句捧げた。

 草生えてあなたは瞑(ねむ)る浄土かな  把不住

8)それと今晩もSNSで、他の男性サニヤシン(ミトラ)の訃報が流れていた。私はあったことがなかったので、画像があっても記憶はないが、それでもやっぱりネットワークのひとつひとつのポイントが消えていくことは、私の虫歯が一本づつぬけていくのと同じような心境に似て(ちがうか)、寂しい。そして、それを乗り越えて、祝福をもしてみたい。

9)ところで、この映画、趣向を変えて、今夜は、大きな画面につないで3度目の視聴をこころみたが、達しなかった。いくつかの原因があったのだが、いくつかの機材が壊れていたのだ。先日の2月13日の震度6強の福島沖地震の影響はすさまじかった。我が家の家電がかなり傷んだ。きちんとチェックしていないのだが、どうも、思っている以上に被害は甚大である。

10)ということで、今回はこの映画を深追いすることはやめた。縁があるなら、また再視聴するチャンスも訪れることであろう。私は、古い機材等はなるべく大事にするほうだが(なんせ廃物アートを趣味にしている)、モノにも命というものがある。それぞれに寿命があるのだから、あまりに酷使して、使い回すのもよくないかもしれないな、と思う。

11)そこそこ古くなったら、あまりに執着せずに、そこそこにモノ離れしたほうがいいように思う。いや、最近になってそう思うようになった。そうとなれば、大事にしてきた本とか、機材とか、モチーフなども、ひとつひとつ整理していく必要があるのだろうな、と思った。

12)もちろん、肉体としての命もだ。執着しまくるのも善し悪しだな。吾唯足知、吾れ唯だ足るを知る、だな。生者必滅、会者定離、厭離穢土、欣求浄土・・・・・  南無阿弥陀仏

いつか、つづく、だろう・・・・。

★★★★☆

1)2回目を見た。今度はすこし大きな画面で見たが、ちょっと発色が悪かった。これは機材の性能によるものだが、それでも、違った環境で二回みたのはよかったと思う。今回はそれなりに、この作品に「慣れた」。

2)そもそも人はなぜに映画なんぞを見るのか。小説なら小説でいいではないか。ノンフィクションが好きならノンフィクション専門で追っかければいいではないか。でも、人は小説を読み、映画を見る。しかも何回も読み、何回も見る。

3)なんでかな。2回目を見ながらそう思っていた。一回目と見る側として、ちょっと違っていたのは、演じられる世界から、さらにイメージの広がりの補足を二回目は、もうちょっと大きくなっていた、ということだ。車でで言えば、最初はショールームでみただけで、全部が分かるわけではないだろう。試乗して初めてわかることも多くある。

4)ましてや、自分のものとして、自分の世界に車を付け加え、愛車とまでいう段階になれば、同じ車でも、かなり違った意味付けになってくるだろう。友人だとて、恋人だとで、きっとそのような段階がある。映画で見る世界も、きっとそのような積み重ねの結果、ということが大きく作用してくるに違いない。

5)今回は、ちょっと仲代達矢のライフストーリーをウィキペディアで読んだことが大きく作用しているようだ。彼については、ほとんど何もしらないかったが、その面相からくるイメージと無名塾とやらの演劇集団を主催していること、そして、そういえば奥さんを早く亡くしたことぐらいを知っている程度だった。

6)しかし、その出生や幼少期、青年期や、演劇との出会いや、演劇に賭ける人生の一端を知ったことが、この映画をみるこちらの姿勢が大きく変わったことが影響しているようだ。どうしてそこまで、人生を賭けるのか? つまり、人はなぜに生きるのか、というところまでつながった。

7)そういう意味において、単なる映画鑑賞ではあるが、もう一段、なにか別次元への足かがりをみつけたかもしれない。時あたかも、テレビでは「バック・トウ・ザ・フイユチャー」が始まった。こちらもまた、30年前の世界への「帰郷」だった。時間を、人生をどうとらえるか、ということは、大きな可能性を秘めている。

8)「帰郷」は、老境を扱っている作品だ。そして南無阿弥陀仏。それから、ついに人は死して御山に帰る。そのストーリーに、見るものは、どのような付加価値、付加ストーリーを付け加えることができるのか。作品として外材物を評価するだけでなく、その映画に触発された何かが、自らの中に、なにごとかの波及を与えているのかどうか。せめて、何度か見るのなら、その変化に気づいているべきであろう。

No.4493★★★★☆ 「歯科椅子上のリゾート」リスト

1)このところ、歯の調子が悪く、何度も歯科に通っている。若い時から長年通っていた歯医者さんはまだまだ若いと思っていたが、老齢を理由に廃業してしまった。ちょうどパンデミックが始まるタイミングだったので、そのことも加味したのかもしれない。

2)その次に通った歯科も、できたばっかりだったのに、すぐに廃業してしまった。こちらも老齢っぽかった。そして、いま通っている歯科は、まだ若いはずなのだが、私としては、ちょっとお久しぶりの歯医者さんである。

3)彼は、家族が通っている歯科で、奥さんや子供たちが通った歯医者さんである。私もずっと前になにかの時に一回だけみていただいたから、ひょっとするとカルテくらいは残っているかもしれない。なにかの時に、うしろから「だれだれ君のおとうさんですか?」なんて声をかけていただいたから、私の印象も少しは覚えていていただいのかもしれない。

4)で、このところ、私の歯の周りは、年相応に、というべきか、それ以上にかなりいたんでいる。そもそもが若い時から歯磨き大嫌い人間だったので、老いてこうなるのは、しかたないよなぁ、と覚悟はしている。

5)先日、歯科の支払いを終わって出るときに、ドアの脇に段ボールに二つほど、CDが並んでいた。なんだろう、宅急便でも出すのかな? それともゴミ? なんて勝手に考えていた。だけど、昨日、思い切って、受付のお嬢さんに聞いてみた。あれって、ひょっとすると、自由にお持ち帰りください、って意味ですか、なんて、いつも洒落のつもりでいってみた。

6)そしたらどうだ、そうです、と来た? え、あれ、いただいていいんですか? はい、院長が手放すことを決意したみたいですので、どうぞお持ち帰りください、と来た。ええ??? そうだったのか? 先週、もったいないことしたな。あの時、気づけばもらっていたのに。

7)先日通院した時は、段ボールふたつあったのに、今日はもう、ひとつしか残っていない。ああ、残念なことした。と、きっちり並んでいるCDを眺め落とした。背中のタイトルしかないので、どんなCDが入っているかわからない。許可がでるのなら、すべてもらってきてもいいのだが、まぁ、マナー上、そうもいかないだろう。

8)この歯科は、常にバックミュージックでハワイアンがかかっている。まさかCDをかけているわけではなくて、有線放送かなにかなのだろうが、それでもこの歯科はハワイアン、というイメージが強い。

9)なにはともあれ、段ボールの中から、おもむろに5~6枚、無作為にいただいてきた。全部ハワイアンなのかな、と思ったが、そうでもなさそうだ。何枚か抜き出して、ハワイアン風なデザインのカバーがついているものをいただいてきた。まったく未知な分野の音楽である。

10)今後どうなるか。気に入れば、来週もごそっといただいてきてしまおう。このシリーズ、なんとつけようかな、と思ったが、「歯科椅子上のリゾート」シリーズなんて名前はどうだろう。夏に向けて新展開なるかも。

「帰郷」  杉田成道 監督 

81x5qlteq9l_ac_sl1500_
帰郷 
杉田成道 (監督)  藤沢周平(原作)2020年作品 仲代達矢 (出演), 常盤貴子 (出演), 形式: DVD 言語 : 日本語 製品サイズ : 30 x 10 x 20 cm; 80 g EAN : 4907953283978 メディア形式 : 色, ドルビー 時間 : 1 時間 59 分
No.4492★★★★☆

1)ネットサーフィンしていたら、この作品の名前がでてきた。藤沢周平作品としては比較的新しいようだ。海外においても評価が高いようで、何かの賞を与えられたようだ。

2)図書館は閉まっているし、ネットでも安易には観照できそうにないので、レンタルショップにでかける。正直あまり慣れていないシステムなので、DVD一枚借りてくるのも、一苦労だ(笑)。

3)自宅に戻って早速再生してみるが、わが家のシステムでは再生できないようで、しかたがないので、パソコンの画面で見る。この映画は、超細密画像でできているらしく、本当は、映画館や畳一枚分くらいの大きな画面でみれば、なおその迫力があるのだろうが、ちょっと残念。

4)で、見る前から思っていたのだが、はて、藤沢周平の小説と、この映画のような超有名大物役者たちのような取り合わせはいかがなものであろうか。たとえば、主演の仲代達矢などは、あまりに俳優の個性が出過ぎていて、はて、この原作小説を生かしているだろうか。

5)娘役の常盤貴子にしても、「京都人の密かな愉しみ」ですっかり騙されてしまった(笑い)わたくしとしては、あのイメージがチラチラして、こちらの時代劇の中に、うまく溶け込めない。気難しい、きままな一人の藤沢周平ファンとしては、敢えて★4の評価としておく。

6)私は、若い時はともかく、一生を通して考えれば、この小説の主人公ほどにはヤサグレておらず、早めに帰郷をはたしてしまった立場だ。30年という年月は、確かに年月としては長いが、いざ老齢に達してみれば、あっという間の30年である。もともと朋輩であった敵役の中村敦夫が、いくら老齢に達していたとしても、突然あらわれた仲代達矢を忘れている、なんてことはあるだろうか。

7)弥勒菩薩の指が欠けたからと言って、それをやくざ稼業に連携させるなんぞは、原作がどうなっているか知らないが、どうもいただけない。ましてや、もう、正直言うが、仲代の「南無阿弥陀仏」はいけない。最近の私は、どうも浄土教にはすこし距離を感じているせいもあるだろうが、それでもやはり、どうも違和感を感じてしまう。

8)当ブログは最近、「蝉しぐれ」にぞっこんで、なんども繰り返して見ている。あの映画やドラマにしても、最初に見た時は、おざなりな通りすがりだったが、今になって、ぐっと胸に迫ってきている。この「帰郷」も、ひょっとすると、そのように、いつか、グッドタイミングで私に迫ってくるものだろうか。

9)仲代はすでに80代後半だと聞くし、中村敦夫にしても80だ。まだまだ初期高齢者の私などとは、違った心境であるかもしれない。私なんぞは、過去を振り買って懐かしむには、まだまだ早い、ひよっこなのかもしれない。もうすこし、仕事が残っているのだろう。

10)DVDのレンタル期間は一週間だという。その間に、わが家のシステムとうまく調整して、もっと大きな画面で、楽しめればいいな、と願う。

「LIVE ZEN」 <3>
OSHO 1988/11  Rebel Publishing House ハードカバー p299 英語
★★★★★ Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次

I belong to existence on my own accord. I have found Zen - not through the scriptures. That's why I can say, even in Japan there are only teachers and followers, no Zen. I am almost a stranger to the tradition; but I have found Zen on my own accord. It is my discovery, it is not an inheritance from the tradition, an inheritance from Mahakashyapa, Bodhidharma, Obaku. I don't have anything from these people - I don't owe anything to anybody.

If Obaku were here, then Zen Master Niskriya would have pinched his nose. As his representative, Master Niskriya, pinch Maneesha's nose.

どうもこの数日、回線が不調だった。突然、そのような状況が飛び出す。訳のわからないまま、あちこちいじるのだが、解決しない。えい、面倒だ、放置する。しかし放置したままでは、どうにもならないので、色々調べる。結局、ギブアップして、回線そのものを、コネクターから差し抜いて、しばし放置。再び差し込むと、これで治ったりする。 まずはこれでOKなのだが、これはユーザーである私の不備というより、システム回線そのものの不備なのである。治ればそれでOKなのだが、ちょっと忌々しい。

 まずは回線の問題。我が家は確かに最新の状態ではないにせよ、もう使えない状態ではない。あれこれ再確認はしておかなければならないが、いますぐどうということはない。ただ、今後に向けて、どのような方向性で発展・進化していくのか、自分の希望も含め、ビジョンを持つ必要があろう。

次も、私に責を問われる話ではないのだが、最近というより近年、実にジャンクメールが多い。大手通信会社や金融機関、サービスの実名を語り、フェイクサイトに誘導する手口で、実に見え見えだ。語られるサービス自身が対策をすべきなのだが、半ば放置。ジャンクメールのはびこる土壌を蔓延させている。

 SNS友がどこかで議論していた。これは決して私ばっかりの問題なのではない。みんな迷惑しているのだ。普段使っているサービスのPWや支払方法について見直せ、と盛んに嘘ぶいてくる。いい加減やめてくれ、と思うが、もしかして、と思わないわけではない。

 今日は、いくつかの自分の設定を確認。決して異常が起きているわけではない。ジャンクメールは全くのジャンクだ。私のセキュリティに今のところ問題はない。だが、サービスや金融機関の中には、このような状況の中で、アクセス方法を変更させてくるところが増えている。

 今まで何事もなく使ってきたサービスが、アプリやアクセス方法を変更してくることがあるので、それはやはり対応してリニューアルしておかなければならない。念のため、時間をとって、ヘルプデスクに聞きながら、キチンと対応する必要がある。たしかにリニューアルすれば、使いやすくなることが多い。

 少なくとも、増大するジャンクメールは余裕をもって無視し続けることができる。まぁ、それにしても、これまでの長いネット社会の中で、すでに使わなくなっているサービスや金融機関はどんどん停止したり削除して、よりシンプルにしていく必要があろう。

それと、これは今日のメイン話題でもあるのが、通信環境にあわせて、手元のガジェット類の見直しがある。極論すれば、私はもう現在の環境で用は足りているのだが、世の流れは、これでもか、これでもか、と新サービスや新機能を押し付けてくる。リニューアルしても、数年後には時代遅れとなる。いたちごっこである。

 これはすぐには解決しない。基本的には現在のガジェット類で足りているのであるが、これからの進化変化に向けて、余裕のある機能や容量にしていく必要がある。いっぱいいっぱいといえば、確かにいっぱいいっぱいなのである。使って使えないわけではないが、すでにバージョンアップができなくなったり、サポートが終了してしまっているものがないわけではない。

 つまり周辺環境がこのまま安定化していくのなら、もうこれで十分なのだが、世はビックデータとAIの時代だ。そして5Gとやら。別にデジタルが嫌いなわけじゃないし、不要なわけではないが、それにともなう不安要素がないわけじゃない。個人データを捕捉されたり、ある種のサービスを強要される、その付随する環境がどうも納得いかない部分が多すぎるのである。

「把不住述懐」<37>OSHOアシュラム売却?

<36>からつづく

「把不住述懐」 
<37>OSHOアシュラム売却?   目次

1)ここ数日、「プーナOSHOアシュラム売却?」との断片的情報がうろうろしている。その元を確かめようとしているのだが、今のところ、まだ正確な情報に触れることができないでいる。

2)私自身は、この数十年、「やるべきリスト」というノートを作っており、数十項目をひとつひとつつぶして、今日までやってきた。大きなものはあと3つほど残っている。そのうちのひとつは「プーナ再訪」だ。すでに30年もプーナを訪れていない。最後の冥途の土産に、もういちどプーナを訪れ、サマディを巡礼しよう、というのが、最後に残されている課題のひとつだった。

3)なんだそんなことか、と言われればそれまでだが、残る3つどころか、これまで処理してきた課題だって、他人から見れば、どうでもいいようなことばかりなのだ。なにを今さら、と言われれば、まさにそのとおり。しかし、本人にとってみれば、日々の課題は小さいことの積み重ねだ。畑の草をとることだったり、パスワードを変更することだったり、誰かさんに電話一本いれることだったり、日常茶飯事は次から次と、課題を押し付けてくる。

4)さて、今回、プーナのアシュラムが無くなる、と想定した場合、私の大きな人生の目標だったプーナ再訪は、ついに立ち消えになってしまうかもしれない。そう思うと、ちょっとした喪失感に襲われる。

5)インドまでの旅路を考えると、決して楽しいことばかりではない。若い時ならいざ知らず、電車を乗り換え、飛行場を目指し、不安な空路からインドの飛行場に着陸し、それからさらにタクシーや電車で西インドを旅する行程を考えると、決して楽しいことばかりが目に浮かぶわけではない。

6)プーナにたどり着けば、おそらく楽しいことがたくさん待っているだろう。それまでの我慢だ、と思えば、多少の旅の疲れも吹き飛ぶだろう。だが、それも、プーナのアシュラムがあればこそだ。もし、そこが廃墟になっており、知人友人との再会もままならないとするならば、旅そのものが、苦痛なものに変わってしまうだろう。

7)かつて似たような経験をしたことがある。オレゴンのコミューンだ。あそこにたどり着くまでにも、たくさんの悲喜劇があった。だが、そこにおける楽しい体験はいまでも、我が人生の基礎となってくれている。数年の体験だったとしても、そこが閉鎖されてしまった、ということは、悲しいことだった。いつか誰かが再興するに違いない、との思いが今でもある。

8)今回プーナのアシュラムが仮に閉鎖されてしまうとすれば、それはそれは悲しい出来事になるに違いない。師を失い、友を失い、さらに思い出の地を失うということは、確かに苦痛である。

9)されど、角度を変えてみれば、Oshoはセレブレーションの中に消えていったし、友たちも、それぞれに覚悟の歓喜のなかに消えていった。とすれば、思い出の地もまた、不可視のパラダイスとして、永遠に存続するに違いない。

10)すでに地球上にはたくさんのOSHOたちが散在している。ゆるいネットワークでつながりつつある。そしてOSHOが遺した数々の偉業はすでに、地球上どの地においても、平等にシェアされるところまで成長してきているのだ。地球上のどこか一点のみに、何事かの聖地やメッカのようなものを想定する必要もなかろう。

11)晩年に、熊野参りができなくなった中世の伝説・名取老女が、この地に熊野三社を勧請したと語られているように、ひとりのサニヤシンとして、私は私なりに、この地に、OshoZenの拠点を作ろう。作るといえば、傲慢だが、おそらくそれは、誰かや、何かを通して、必ずや実態化するに違いない。

12)そのためには、まずは日々、一人のサニヤシンとして、今日一日をここで精いっぱい生ききることが、大切なこととなろう。このような人生になったことを、私は大いに喜び、感謝します。

1)あれこれ集中している間に、こちらのテーマも溜まったままになっている。実に面倒臭いテーマでできれば避けて通りたいところだが、身に降る火の粉は、払わにゃならぬ。あれこれありすぎるので、 まずはアトランダムに箇条書きしておく。

2)①どうもこの数日、回線が不調だった。突然、そのような状況が飛び出す。訳のわからないまま、あちこちいじるのだが、解決しない。えい、面倒だ、放置する。しかし放置したままでは、どうにもならないので、色々調べる。結局、ギブアップして、回線そのものを、コネクターから差し抜いて、しばし放置。再び差し込むと、これで治ったりする。 まずはこれでOKなのだが、これはユーザーである私の不備というより、システム回線そのものの不備なのである。治ればそれでOKなのだが、ちょっと忌々しい。

②次も、私に責を問われる話ではないのだが、最近というより近年、実にジャンクメールが多い。大手通信会社や金融機関、サービスの実名を語り、フェイクサイトに誘導する手口で、実に見え見えだ。語られるサービス自身が対策をすべきなのだが、半ば放置。ジャンクメールのはびこる土壌を蔓延させている。

③それと、これは今日のメイン話題でもあるのが、通信環境にあわせて、手元のガジェット類の見直しがある。極論すれば、私はもう現在の環境で用は足りているのだが、世の流れは、これでもか、これでもか、と新サービスや新機能を押し付けてくる。リニューアルしても、数年後には時代遅れとなる。いたちごっこである。

④次はセキュリティの問題。これは①や②とも関連してくるのだが、端的にいえばPWの問題である。我が身を守るのだから、仕方ないのだが、実に面倒臭い。増え続けるPWの管理自体が大変になる。それなりに工夫して対処はしているが、一桁の時代はとっくに昔の話で、どうかすると3桁のPWを使い分けていかなければならない。実に面倒である。

⑤増え続けるアプリやサービスも、大胆に選択して、バッサリと切り捨てる必要がある。デジタル断捨離である。もちろんこれまでも、その対応をしてきたのだが、サービス側もスクラップ&ビルドしてくるので、単純に今までの体制で、というわけにはいかない。あれこれ思案を巡らす必要がある。そして新サービスは、進化したり改善されていればいいのだが、どうもそうではないことが多い。

⑥最近は、ビックデータやAIなどという単語を巧みに織り交ぜて、新サービスをあおる。もうここまでくると、DIYやアマチュアリズムは歯が立たない。ちっとも面白くないお仕着せサービスに協力させられたりする。これは願い下げだ。

⑦結局情報が氾濫し、フェイクも増える。ネット社会はすでにガバナンスは乱れに乱れており、ネット・リテラシーを向上し続ける必要が急増する。本当にこのネット社会は、人類を幸せにするのか。すでに再考の時代に突入しているだろう。

3)今日のところは、まずはこの程度の愚痴で収めておく。具体的には、一つ一つ対応して、ここ当面は、煩わされずに済む環境づくりに励む必要がある。当ブログとしては、5年に一度、10年に一度の大点検である。どうせやるなら、楽しくやろうではないか。しかも、最先端はどこまで行っているのか、確認してやろう。

OSHO最後のZENシリーズ<7>

<6>から続く

1)ようやく全27冊のフォーマットづくりが完了した。今回にわかづくりのような感が否めないが、どうしてどうして、準備期間は相当に長かった。当ブログ<1>が始まった当初からだから、もうすでに15年が経過している。

2)どうしてまたこんなに時間がかかったのか、といえば、いくつかの要因を思い浮かべることができるが、まずは世の中面白いことでいっぱいだ、ということができる。最後の究極シリーズにたどり着くまでに、寄り道をいっぱい、やるだけやってしまったのだ。

3)逆に言うと、もう面白いことがあまり残っていない、と言うことになる。最後に残るのはこれだけ。究極のシリーズだ。そしてまた。このシリーズは、とっかかるのに、やや面倒臭い、と言うことがあった。英語本全27冊に対して、邦訳は6冊しかない。いずれ出るかな、と待ちくたびれていたが、ついぞ出てこなかった。つまり残る21冊は英語本を読まなければならないのだ。

4)今回は、それなりの工夫をほどこしたしたので、割とスムーズに進行した。どうかすると、同じ内容でも、邦訳本より、英語本の方が面白く、発見の数が多いことも分かった。

5)そしてまた、俳句や唐代禅師たちの言行録に関しては、やはり和漢文献がどうしても必要であることも分かった。あるいは鈴木大拙などが、どのように禅を英語で紹介していたのかも、チェックが必要なことも再認識した。

6)しかし、最大の収穫は、歴史的とか、文献的にとか、伝統とか 、方脈とかにこだわる前に、いかにOSHOがダイレクトにZENしているかを痛感できたことだった。

7)現在の一番のお気に入りは、26冊目の「I Celebrate Myself」である。27冊中 この本だけが、著者名を「OSHO」と言い切っている。表紙がまた素晴らしい。

8)それとOSHOの語源の一人の詩人は、ウィリアム・ブレイクであることも確認できた。OSHOはすでにホウ居士についても語っているのだった。また、彼は馬祖と並んで石頭も相当に愛しているのだった。

9)それと、いきなり英語で展開すると、当ブログの読者はほとんどついてこないこともわかった。地球人である限り、母国語と英語は必須の時代である。当ブログは、もっともっと英語で強化する予定である。

10)何はともあれ、螺旋階段を一歩前にすすんだ。

The Zen Manifesto; Freedom from Oneself  OSHO<25>

<24>からつづく

Manifest

The Zen Manifesto; Freedom from Oneself <25> 
Osho (Author) February and April 1989 Publisher: Rebel Publishing House Hardcover 296 pages Language: English
★★★★★
Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次  

1)That is the Zen Manifesto: freedom from oneself.

And only Zen has refined, in these twenty-five centuries, methods, devices to make you aware that you are not, that you are only arbitrary, just an idea.

As you go beyond the mind, even the idea of "I am" disappears. When the "I" also disappears and you start feeling a deep involvement in existence, with no boundaries, then only has Zen blossomed in you. In fact, that is the state, the space of the awakened consciousness. But it has no "I" at the center, no atman, no self.p9

 

2)The second question:

D.T. SUZUKI, THE MAN WHO INTRODUCED ZEN TO THE WESTERN INTELLIGENTSIA, SAID:

"ZEN MUST BE SEIZED WITH BARE HANDS, WITH NO GLOVES ON."

WOULD YOU LIKE TO COMMENT?

His statement is rationally beautiful. You should seize Zen with your bare, naked hands, with no gloves on. He means by that that you should enter into the world of Zen without any beliefs, without any security, without any safety, without any gloves. You should enter into Zen with naked hands, with nudity.

But his statement is still intellectual. He was neither a master of Zen nor even a man of Zen. If he had been a master of Zen, he could not have said it. A master of Zen cannot say that Zen must be seized. It is not a question of seizing Zen. This is the old language of the mind, of "conquering nature." Now it becomes conquering Zen.

Zen is your reality. Whom are you going to seize? Whom are you going to conquer? You ARE Zen.

And what does he mean by "with bare hands"? Hands will not reach there, bare or with gloves on. Hands symbolize the movement outwards, they always point towards the outside. All your senses open to the outside, they are all extrovert. Your ears hear the sound that is coming from the outside, your eyes see colors, light that is coming from the outside, your hand goes on grabbing - that is outside you. None of your senses can reach to the inside. For the inside there is a different sensitivity, the third eye. There are no hands.

Just between your two eyebrows, exactly in the middle, is the place which can look inwards. When you are with closed eyes, trying to look inwards, rushing towards your center, you are hitting on the third eye continuously. Because it has not been opened for centuries, it has forgotten how to open.

Hence, every day meditation... and one day suddenly you will find the eye has opened, and the whole path is clean and clear. You have simply to walk to the center.

Now there are no hands, and there is no question of conquering. It is your nature. The very idea that Zen must be seized creates a duality: you are the person who is going to seize Zen, and Zen is something other than you. It creates a duality. That's what gives me a clear-cut idea whether the man is just intellectual or has the experience. I have my clear-cut criteria how to know that a man is talking only from the mind. Howsoever clever D.T. Suzuki may be, I say unto you that he is not a master, he is still living in duality. p21

3)The Zen Manifesto is not for anything special. It is simply for this life, this existence, this moment. It does not ask for any source, and it does not ask for any goal. Every source will make a limitation, and every goal will make another limitation, and existence is unlimited. It is not limited by reason.p89

4)Zazen is Zen. Sitting silently, doing nothing, an explosion comes to you. Your own nature blossoms, your buddhahood comes to its ultimate peak. p133

5)The second question:

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ZORBA AND ZEN?

The whole past of humanity has tried to keep them separate, and this has been an unfortunate experiment. The Zorba has remained incomplete, just superficial. And Zen has remained incomplete; it has only the inner world, and the outer is missing.

My Manifesto of Zen is that Zorba and Zen are not antagonistic to each other. The Zorba can melt into Zen, and only then will both be complete.

The man who has lived outside has lived very superficially, and the man who does not know anything about the inner, knows nothing about the existential, about the eternal. And on the other hand, the man who knows something of the inner starts thinking that the outer is illusory.

Nothing is illusory.

The outer and the inner are part of one existence.

I want Zorbas to be buddhas and vice versa. And unless this becomes possible, there will not be many buddhas, and there will not be many Zorbas either. In the completion of Zorba and Zen, a tremendous quality comes to your life: you relish every moment of the outside world, every flower of the outside world. And you relish simultaneously the inner freedom, the inner joy, the inner drunkenness. There is no question of any division. But humanity has lived in a divided way, and that has been a catastrophe.

It is time for Zorba to start meditating, and it is time for the people who are meditators not to allow themselves to escape from the world. They have to come to the world with all their juice, with all their ecstasy... to share.

It seems very difficult to understand, because the whole tradition of the world goes against it. But I don't see any difficulty.

In myself I have joined Zorba and Zen together; hence I don't see any difficulty. I am in the world, and yet I am not of the world.

I rejoice in the birds, the flowers, the trees.

I rejoice in myself, in my silence, and I don't see there is any difference. The inner and the outer slowly have become melted into one whole. And unless your inner and outer become one whole, you will remain incomplete - and incompletion is misery.

Only in completion is there bliss.

Only in completion have you come home.

You have come to existence without any conflict, in tremendous ease, relaxed.

The Zorba in the past has been tense and worried that perhaps he is not the right person. And the man of Zen has been with the tension that he has to avoid this, he has to avoid that - that he has to become a recluse far away in the mountains. But the very fear of the world shows your misunderstanding.

The world has not to be feared, it has to be loved.

We are the world.

There is no question of escaping from anything. Every moment everything has to be enjoyed without any guilt, without any inhibition. But all the religions have been against it.

I proclaim with this manifesto a totally new sky for religious consciousness: the sky of completion, the joining of the inner and the outer, of the material and the spiritual, of Zorba and the buddha.p149

6)Come back peacefully, silently, as a buddha.

Just for a few seconds close your eyes and remember the path and the source you have found, and the buddha nature that you have experienced.

This moment you are the most blessed people on the earth. Remembering yourself as a buddha is the most precious experience, because it is your eternity, it is your immortality.

It is not you, it is your very existence. You are one with the stars and the trees and the sky and the ocean. You are no longer separate.

The last word of Buddha was, sammasati.

Remember that you are a buddha - sammasati.

Okay, Maneesha?

Yes, Osho.

I celebrate myself: God is no where--life is now here OSHO<3>

Celebrate myself: God is no where--life is now here<3> 
OSHO (英語) ハードカバー 言語 : 英語
★★★★★ 
Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)Zen has come to the highest point of expression. It has become almost synonymous with eternal life. Adam and Eve could not eat the fruit of the eternal life, they were expelled from the Garden of Eden. They had only eaten the fruit of knowledge. But Zen gives you the other tree, the tree of eternal life.

So in this series we will be discussing Zen, as equivalent to eternal life.

God is no where.

Life is now here.

And Zen is the master key to open the doors of the mystery of life.p25

3)Zen gives equal opportunity to sinners and saints, to the good and to the bad, because its understanding is very clear. Its insight is so deep that the distance from no-mind is equal.

So it does not matter what kind of things you have been involved in. Whether you were doing things which people think are wrong, or whether you were doing things which people think are right -- it does not matter! Those were all your mind phenomena. Just go beyond the mind. When the saint drops his mind, and the sinner drops his mind, they both enter into the same space, the same buddhahood.

This is the great rebellion of Zen. And this gives you a totally different kind of religiousness. This makes you dance, live with totality with no inhibition, with no guilt, because wherever you are, the moment you want to enter into your eternal life, you can take a jump. From any point in existence, from any kind of personality, you can drop that personality and move into utter silence.

No religion has that amount of guts; no religion has that amount of courage -- Zen is really daring! It belongs only to the lions, not to the sheep of Jesus Christ.p33

4)The first question:

TO US, ARE THE WORDS 'GOD' AND 'NO-MIND' SYNONYMOUS?

No, not at all. God can never be synonymous with no-mind. God is always there, far away. God has been always referred to by the word 'that' -- invisible, just a fiction. No- mind has been always referred to as this.

No-mind is your reality, your ultimate nature; God was a mind-created lie. No-mind is your truth, your splendor, your very universe. They cannot be synonymous.

God does not exist; no-mind exists.

God is only a belief; no-mind is an experience.

God has been the cause of all your mental sickness.

No-mind is pure health, wholeness.

The moment you utter the word 'God' you immediately start thinking of him as a person, as a creator. No-mind is not a person; on the contrary, your very personality disappears, only then does no-mind start blossoming. No-mind is not a creator. It has always been here, and will remain always here; it is always now. No-mind is your eternity, your very source of life.

God was just an excuse to exploit humanity and to keep humanity in a very subtle and invisible bondage. God has been your prison; no-mind is your freedom. God has been in the hands of the priests, and the priests are doing the ugliest job in the world, because their whole business depends on a lie.

No-mind has no priests, it is simply there inside you. And once you experience it, suddenly you become aware that no-mind is not your property, it is not your monopoly.

The first experience appears to be that it is your no-mind, but soon you become aware that the no-mind contains the whole universe, it contains the whole existence.

God has always been an outsider. You cannot create anything if you are not an outsider.

The Hindus refer to God as a potter, but the potter has to be outside the pot, only then can he create it. If he is inside the pot, the pot is already created. What is he doing inside the pot? The potter has to be outside, only then can he create the pot. All religions have the same idea in different symbols -- but God is an outsider.

If there is a God you are only creatures, created people. Without God you are buddhas, uncreated people. God is the heaviest burden that man has been carrying, and because of that there is no progress, there is no evolution. The heavy burden, the chains, go on pulling you backwards. They don't allow you to move faster to the higher peaks of evolution.

God has to be completely demolished from your minds. It is an absolute necessity and urgency. Once you drop God you will be surprised how many other lies have simply disappeared. He is the source, the foundation of all lies. Just watch God disappearing and you will see heaven has disappeared, hell has disappeared, fear has disappeared, dread, greed ... they are simply gone. God was the source. For the first time you can breathe at ease.

God was judgmental; no-mind has no judgment. God was continuously condemning you; no-mind is a blissful, ecstatic state. God is just programmed into your mind.

In the Soviet Union they program differently. They program no-God, but both are programs. The atheist does not know that there is no God, nor does the theist know that there is a God. Both are belief systems contrary to each other. But that does not mean that one is right and the other is wrong. Both cannot be right, but both can be wrong -- and both are wrong.

An authentic man will not accept any belief system either of atheist or of theist. He will explore on his own what the truth is; he will not like secondhand knowledge. You never think about it, but you would not like to wear somebody else's shoes. You would not like to wear somebody else's secondhand clothes. But your whole mind is secondhand, and not only secondhand, in fact, your mind has been going from hand to hand to hand for millions of years. Living with this mind is not living at all.

Your mind is borrowed -- your life cannot be sincere and honest. Your mind is borrowed -- your morality cannot be truthful, it will only be hypocrisy. Out of a borrowed mind, how can you manage any truthfulness, any sincerity, any authenticity, any originality?

God is the oldest lie, and no-mind is a fresh original experience.p49

5)A certain magnetism arises with enlightenment, and those who are searching, knowingly or unknowingly, are pulled, sometimes in spite of themselves. They don't want, but something is more forceful than their wanting or not wanting. Some challenge is coming from some direction, and they start moving.

You can see people here from all over the earth, from every nook and corner, and I am the most condemned man, the most notorious man around the world. Why should you be here? All the governments are against me, all the religions are against me, all the nations are against me, but it does not prevent you. Something far more powerful is pulling you.

You had to come; it was impossible to resist. And once you have come, it is very difficult to go away.

Even if you go away, you will be carrying me with you -- not in the luggage but in your heart, because luggage gets lost many times. Don't trust luggage. And I don't like to be in a suitcase. I don't have any! p139

6)In Zen, on the fullmoon night of every month, they watch the moon the whole night. And as they go on witnessing the moon, a deep tranquility and silence descends over them, particularly on the night when Gautam Buddha was born, became enlightened, and died.

So this is a special, very special night for the people belonging to the small stream of Zen.

Shodai said, "I have come here for Buddha's birthdate celebrations." Ma Tzu was a very famous master; Sekito was not that famous. Slowly, slowly he became famous after his death, but Ma Tzu was famous while he was alive -- very famous, because of his strange behavior. Shodai must have thought that on the celebrations of this moon, it would be good to go to Ma Tzu -- something might transpire. So he said, "I have come here to celebrate the birth of Gautam the Buddha."p219

7)First you must have love, then you can share it.

But do you have love? It is a by-product of meditation. Only people who have meditated deeply know what love is, and then there is no question of "falling" in love. Then comes the rising in love, you go higher and higher; your love becomes your religion, your love becomes your very existence.

I teach you love, not renunciation.

I teach you celebration, not celibacy.

I teach you to be natural, to be existential.

Then you will find yourself being very creative in some dimension or other, and you will not be suffering from a vacuum.

Celebration has to fill up your vacuum, otherwise, the whole of humanity is going to suffer badly. These religions are dead. Sooner or later everybody is going to recognize the fact and then there will be an immense vacuum which God used to fill. It was a lie, but it was a great consolation that there was somebody who was caring for you, who was your security. Even in death you need not be worried -- beyond death is paradise.

But now there is no paradise, no God. Nobody is waiting for you beyond death. You will be going alone.

You have to learn how to be alone.

You have to learn how to rejoice to be alone. You have to learn how to dance -- alone; there is no need for spectators. And there is no need even for partners. You can dance alone the way a rose dances in the wind, in the air, in the sun, in the rain. Do you think the rose is waiting for spectators or for partners?

Meditation gives you the deep insight into your aloneness. And remember the difference:p256

God is Dead.JPG











God Is Dead,Now Zen Is the Only Living Truth <2>
Osho January 1997 Rebel Pub、Hardcover p304
★★★★★
Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)Zen is the method to go beyond mind. So we will be discussing God and Zen together. God has to be negated, and Zen has to be planted deep in your being. The lie has to be destroyed and the truth has to be revealed. That's why I have chosen God and Zen together. God is a lie, Zen is a truth. P17

2)Enlightenment is not of the mind, it is the fragrance of no-mind. No-mind is not based on any character. Just the contrary: all character arises out of the clarity of no-mind. So it is not imposed from outside as a discipline. It arises as a spontaneous response. You simply cannot do any evil. It is not a question of your deciding not to do evil, you simply cannot do it. You are so full of light, how can you behave like a blind man? You are so full of light, how can you behave like a man stumbling in darkness?

So character arises, wisdom arises, and a thousand other things: blissfulness, ecstasy, benediction, compassion. There is no end; more and more flowers go on flowering.p55

3)The sutra, the SANDOKAI, second part:

OUR

BELOVED MASTER,

SEKITO WROTE: CAUSE AND EFFECT BOTH NECESSARILY DERIVE FROM THE GREAT REALITY.

Everything derives from the great reality. There is no other reality, there is only one reality, the great reality. Outside, inside are just two sides of this great reality. Every cause, every effect, necessarily comes from this great reality.

THE WORDS 'HIGH' AND 'LOW' ARE USED RELATIVELY.

Don't take any cognizance of those words. They are very relative, but even your so-called great people suffer from strange ideas.p234

4)Buson wrote:

I GROW OLD - SWEET BIRD, YOU VANISH INTO AUTUMN TWILIGHT.

He is saying, "I grow old, and just as a sweet bird vanishes into the autumn twilight far away, you see it to a certain point and then it goes into the blue sky..." He is saying, "I am also growing old, sweet bird, my autumn twilight is going to come soon. I will also disappear into the blueness of existence."

These are the words of someone who knows.

Death is a door to the divine, death is a door to the deepest mystery of existence. You just have to disappear. You are the only problem, you are the only barrier. Just drop that problem, drop that barrier, and all is just ecstasy and pure bliss.p238

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)Communism happened as an accident in Russia. It was not according to the economic analysis by Karl Marx. But whatever the cause, it happened. It is the first communist country in the world, the only hope.

And I am not against only Christianity. I am against all religions except Zen, because Zen is not a religion but only religiousness. I have to make it clear to you that religion is a doctrine, an organized church, a belief system, a fictitious God, heaven and hell, and a great priesthood which functions as a mediator between you and God and exploits you in the name of religion, in the name of God.

Zen is the only religious phenomenon in the world which has no doctrine, no scripture, which has no God, no belief system, no organized church. It is an individual phenomenon, just like love. You don't have a church of love. You don't have a political party for love. It is an individual freedom.

Just as love is individual, so is meditation. And to me, religion only means one thing: meditation, going inwards and exploring your consciousness. Just the way science explores matter, meditation is the science of the inner; it explores consciousness.p9

2)One of the sannyasins has asked a question:

WHAT IS MISSING IN COMMUNISM?

Zen Fire and Zen Wind -- that is what is missing in communism. P43

3)Meditation will use communism as the base, and will put the pillars and the roof on the base. The Soviet citizen needs something of meditative experience that will fill his hollowness. Otherwise just work, and death... there seems to be no meaning and significance. If you had not been born there would be no harm; if you die nobody is going to miss you, you will be replaced.p50

4)And Marxism will become a complete philosophy if it can be joined with Zen. That's why I say, "What is missing? Zen Fire, Zen Wind." p58

5)But Zen comes to the very highest peak -- the purest meditation, refined by centuries of mystics in India, mystics in China, mystics in Japan. It has moved through so much refinement, sharpening -- continuous sharpening -- that there is nothing else compared to it.p64

6)Maneesha, communism is certainly a necessary step for a more humane society, but not socialism. You don't understand the difference between socialism and communism. Most people think they are synonymous.

Socialism is a cowardly compromise with capitalism. Communism is absolutely no compromise with capitalism, and no compromise with anything that constitutes capitalism. P166

7)No-mind is meditation, and no-mind is the revelation, and no-mind is the greatest rebellion that has ever happened.

In the past only very few people... a Gautam Buddha here and there, thousands of years pass and then comes one person who blossoms into a buddha. But now there is no more time. You cannot postpone for tomorrow. Whatever you want to do has to be done now! P182

Christianity
Christianity, the Deadliest Poison & Zen, the Antidote to All Poisons  <2>
Osho (Author) January 1989 Publisher: Rebel Pub. House Hardcover  330 pages

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)Friends,

Question 1:

One sannyasin has asked me:

CANNOT WE DISAGREE WITH YOU? CANNOT WE CRITICIZE YOU?

A significant question for everyone.

This is not a debating club. Neither your agreement is needed, nor your disagreement.

What is needed is your right hearing. If you hear rightly, it will be decisive. Agreement is just a mind thing, and disagreement is also the same. Neither of them is going to help you. What is going to help you is to experiment, to experience, but that comes only when you have heard me.

The greatest difficulty is to hear rightly, to hear silently. If you are thinking to agree or disagree, then you cannot hear me. Your prejudices are there functioning as a curtain, they will distort everything.

I don't ask you to agree with me, and I don't ask you to disagree with me. Our whole approach is beyond the mind.

You have to learn how to listen, how to be silent and let your silence decide. Let your no- mind decide. And I know that your no-mind will be in absolute synchronicity with what I am saying to you. I will not use the word agreement -- that word belongs to the mind -- nor disagreement. They are two polarities of the mind -- positive/negative, theist/atheist, believer/nonbeliever.

I am trying to approach your no-mind, where it is never a question of choice. No-mind functions choicelessly. Once I have approached the no-mind, if you have allowed me, putting your prejudices aside, you won't have to agree or disagree, you will find an immense synchronicity. You will be in absolute harmony with me. And only that harmony can help your evolution.

What will you do with agreement? Just a belief will be created, and I am against all beliefs. What will you do with your disagreement? Your prejudice will remain, and your prejudice is your problem. You will remain within the boundaries of your past upbringing, your programming by the family, by the school, by the society, by the church.

This is not an intellectual discussing club; this is a place for seekers. It is a totally different phenomenon than you will come across anywhere else around the world. Here, we are searching to find a deep harmony. If you can be harmonious with me -- it is not agreement -- you are one with me. Agreement needs two. If you can be harmonious with me, I can transfer much that cannot be said. And only that which cannot be said is going to help your growth. P41

2)Christianity was not founded by Jesus Christ, it has to be remembered. It was founded eighty years after his death, by people who had not directly known him.

Now even Christian scholars have come to the conclusion that the Christian gospels were not written by the apostles but were written by somebody else, because the mountains described are not in the same place where they are described in the gospels. The rivers described are not in the same place where they are described in the gospels. The lakes ...

Everything was written by people who had not known Jesus Christ, and neither had they lived with Jesus Christ.

Christianity is one of the most fake religions of all. Jesus has nothing to do with it. And the pope represents Jesus, and the pope wants you to be loyal to him. The pope wants you to be loyal to the vested interests.

The whole of Christianity is a very dangerous, poisonous phenomenon, because it teaches people that God made the world perfect, you don't have to change it, no revolution is needed. Be loyal to God, and be loyal to everything as it is. The capitalist has to remain as a capitalist -- that's the way God wanted it, and nothing can happen against the will of God. If you are poor, that's how God wanted you to be. If you are a woman and you are not equal to man, that's how God wanted it to be. God created the world as it is.

Christianity does not believe in evolution, it believes in creation. You should understand the difference clearly.p173

3)Maneesha, Zen is the ultimate flowering of consciousness. It started with Gautam Buddha giving a lotus flower to Mahakashyapa. In the statement he made to all the sannyasins who were present, he said, "Whatever I could say through words, I have told you.

Whatever I could not manage to bring to language, I am transfering to Mahakashyapa."

With these words, visibly only the lotus flower was given to Mahakashyapa, but invisibly Buddha transferred his unexpressed experience to Mahakashyapa.

Mahakashyapa was the first Zen master.

But neither was Buddha understood by India ... and the reason is clear. India is a land of great scholarship, it is a land of great scriptures. It is the ancientmost land of the brahmins. For ninety thousand years they have been philosophizing; they have reached great intellectual heights. Buddha jumps out of the Hindu fold -- and not only jumps out of the Hindu fold, he jumps out of the mind.

The whole of Hinduism is mind-oriented. It is very intellectual, but it has no understanding of no-mind. Through intellectual argument it has come to the conclusion that there is a soul -- but it is not its experience, it is a philosophical hypothesis.

Buddha, for the first time, makes religion experiential, for the first time transforms religion into a science of the inner. Just as objective science depends on experiments, not on intellect, the inner science depends on experience, not on intellect. So he went too far beyond the Hindu conception, which was so ancient and so old, and the brahmins were living on it. p238

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)The earth is never without a few enlightened people; it needs search. And only a living master can give you a taste, only a real rose has fragrance. A plastic rose is a deception, and all the religions are relying on plastic roses, all their scriptures are plastic roses.

My effort is so totally different and diametrically opposite to all the founders of religions, that there is no way to compare me with anybody. I am a majority of a single individual, and I want all of you to be a majority of single individuals.

You are enough unto yourself. You don't need anything. You need only a deep inner search. You need only become a meditative genius.  p56

2)Come back, but come as a buddha, silently, peacefully, with great grace. Just sit down for a few moments to recollect, to remember the golden path that you have traveled. Watch. The buddha is coming closer and closer every day. He is becoming a reality in your life, not just an idea.

This I call:Straight to the point of enlightenment!  p124

3)The same is the situation in Japan. You have been hearing me speak on Zen masters; that creates a great desire in you to go to Japan. But don't go to Japan, you will be frustrated.

While I am speaking on Zen masters, I am speaking in a way which is absolutely contemporary; you can understand it. They are still speaking the language of the past.

It is a calamity that the so-called religious people get caught up in a certain moment in history. Then they don't progress from that place. The Buddhists are caught up with Gautam Buddha, twenty-five centuries back. Everything has changed, but their ideology remains twenty-five centuries old. It does not ring bells in your heart, hence you cannot feel at home.

Never think for a moment that what I am saying about Zen has been said by the Zen masters themselves. I am constantly improving, improvising. With me religion is not something static. It is an evolutionary process. It grows like a tree, hundreds of feet high, it moves like a river, thousands of miles; not for a single moment does the movement stop. Since eternity rivers have been moving and moving and moving.

I am not a pond; and when you go to Japan you will find ponds. I make every effort to make the ponds flow like a river. A pond knows nothing but death; it is dying every moment, the water is evaporating. Soon there will be just mud left.

A river is always alive, singing and dancing, and moving into the unknown territories without any map, without any guidance, without a guide - just trusting in existence. It knows that the ocean has to be somewhere. "If the thirst for the ocean is in me, that is enough proof, enough evidence that somewhere the ocean is waiting for me. He has called me, otherwise why this thirst, why this longing to meet with the unlimited?" Your thirst is a proof, an argument, a valid evidence.

With me, nothing is static. That creates a puzzle in many static minds, because whatever I have said yesterday was yesterday. Today I am absolutely fresh and new. Even I don't know what I am going to say to you. When you hear it, I will also hear it. P129

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)Religions don't have any reason to exist in the world. Yes, religiousness is a totally different affair. One can be religious without belonging to a religion. In fact, those who belong to any religion cannot be religious. They can be Christian, they can be Jewish, they can be Hindu, they can be Buddhist, but not religious.

If you want to be religious, you have to stand on your own feet and look withinwards.

God is nowhere outside. There is no person like God in existence. Inside you will find an eternity of consciousness. That is the only divineness, that is the only godliness -- but there is no God.

To experience the godliness in your being will bring a great transformation, a metamorphosis. You will become a new man, with compassion, with love, with understanding, with intelligence, without any fear of death, because you know your eternity, because you know your very center.  P22

2)A little biographical note before I talk about the sutras Maneesha has brought. These sutras belong to the world of Zen. To me, Zen is the only authentic religiousness. It has nothing to do with Buddhism, it has nothing to do with Taoism. In fact it is a rebellion against the traditions of Buddhism and of Taoism. But it has carried the essential message of Buddha. It has discarded all that was mere commentary. It has cut all rubbish out of the way. It is the very essence of Buddha's experience -- and that is also the experience of Lao Tzu, of Tao.

Zen is paving the path for the future humanity of one religiousness.

Zen is the only authentic gold that has come out of the whole past of humanity.

My love for it is not in vain.

I am trying to help you understand Zen for a particular purpose -- because you are going to be the new man, you are going to create a new humanity, a new world, which essentially is growing towards buddhahood.

The buddha is nothing to do with Gautam the Buddha; the buddha is your very nature. It means, the awakening. You are unconscious. Deep underneath your unconsciousness there is hidden a flame of awareness, alertness. That flame is buddha-dharma, that is your very nature. You don't have to go anywhere to find it, you have to go inwards. No church, no organization, no religion... just a quality of religiousness.

And what is the quality of religiousness? The quality of religiousness is to be centered in your witnessing being. Out of that witnessing a great awareness arises in you; the spring comes to your life and thousands of flowers of compassion, of love, of blissfulness. All around the fragrance of the ultimate surrounds you. p11

3)Except the whole earth becomes filled with this festival of being a buddha, there is no hope for man.

But I trust in the intelligence of existence. You simply spread the fragrance. It will become a wildfire around the earth.

One single seed can make the whole earth green. p134

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)There are ten pictures in China - I have talked about those pictures - and they are called the Zen Bulls.

A man lost his bull. In the first picture he looks all around. He can see thick deep forest, but no sign of the bull. In the second picture he finds the footprints of the bull. In the third picture he looks, and the bull is hiding behind a tree, but he can see only the back part of the bull. Then he catches hold of the bull by his horns; he becomes victorious. Soon he is riding on the bull towards his home. Next the bull is put in its place in the stall, and in the last picture the man is sitting outside his house and playing on a flute.

When these ten pictures moved from China to Japan, the tenth picture was dropped, because the tenth picture is really outrageous.

To me, only the tenth picture means something. All these nine pictures are the preparation; in the tenth picture the man is so happy that he has found his bull that he is going to the pub - just to enjoy the evening.

The Buddhists of Japan must have been a little afraid; this tenth picture is too outrageous. But the tenth picture is only symbolic. He is not going to take the drug called "ecstasy"; this bottle of wine that he is carrying is simply a symbol. When one becomes absolutely centered, one is almost drunk, drunk with an inner ecstasy.

Many have reported to me that when you get up after your meditation, "We feel a little drunk." You start moving towards the canteen, but you can see people standing by the side; they are wobbly, they don't know what is happening. Because everybody is going towards the canteen they join them, but not absolutely certain whether they want to go there or not. But because everybody else is going there, it is better to keep company....

It is dangerous to go out of the ashram. The police can get hold of you: "You are drunk!" You may say that, "I have been in ecstasy," and they will say, "Yes, that's what we are saying. You have taken the drug ecstasy. Just come along with us to the police station!"

I love the tenth picture, and I want Japanese Zen masters not to forget it, because that is the ultimate experience. That is a kind of drunkenness you never overcome. It becomes your very nature. You can dance, you can sing, you can rejoice. It is inexhaustible.

These ten pictures are called "the ten-bodied herdsman," because with every new experience you enter into a new layer of your body. The man whose bull has been lost in the first picture is just on the superficial body. As he finds the footprints, he has entered a little deeper. As he finds that the bull is hiding behind a tree, he has entered a little deeper still.  p69

1)Enlightenment is only the beginning, not the end. He came very close and has gone very far away.

But I was waiting for the recognition from a Zen source that Gautam the Buddha is trying to use my words and my silences, my heartbeats and my inner sky to create a few more rainbows, to spread a few more flowers in the world. That recognition has come from a very famous seeress and prophetess from Japan.p5

2)Maneesha has brought a few beautiful sutras.

First, a small biographical note:

HO KOJI ("HO" WAS HIS FAMILY NAME, "KOJI" WAS A TITLE OF RESPECT FOR A LAY STUDENT OF ZEN) FIRST SPENT TIME WITH SEKITO AND THEN WENT TO MA TZU. HE BECAME ENLIGHTENED AND WAS ONE OF MA TZU'S SUCCESSORS.

BELOVED MASTER,

WHEN HE FIRST MET SEKITO, HO KOJI ASKED, "WHO IS HE THAT IS INDEPENDENT OF ALL THINGS?"

BEFORE HE COULD FINISH HIS QUESTION, SEKITO COVERED KOJI'S MOUTH WITH HIS HAND. AT THIS, KOJI UNDERWENT AN EXPERIENCE AND EXPRESSED HIMSELF IN THE FOLLOWING VERSE....

What must have transpired? Koji was going to ask the question, "WHO IS HE THAT IS INDEPENDENT OF ALL THINGS?"

Your innermost being, the witness... but it is not a word, it is an experience.p238

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)And I accept the idea. A society should live... of course everybody cannot be a monk unless my strategy is followed. And it is a little complicated to remain a witness in your ordinary life. It is easier to be a witness if you live in a monastery, or if you are a monk and you don't deal with ordinary life. P8

2)Even though he has become enlightened, he has to give roots to his enlightenment. Otherwise, it will remain only a faraway glimpse, soon forgotten, or maybe remembered only as an echo, miles away. Now you should water carefully the sudden flowering within you. Now you should keep watch around the clock that your treasure is increasing, that your inner sky is spreading wider and wider, that your wings are growing, that the time for the ultimate flight of the dewdrop to the ocean is coming closer.p12

3)After sudden enlightenment, a certain cultivation is needed because the sudden can become a glimpse. Your sleepiness is so deep, your unconsciousness is so vast that a sudden glimpse, a lightning... and again dark clouds have taken over. That beautiful moment will be remembered by you; you will start even doubting it: "Did it happen or did I imagine it? Was it a reality or a dream?"p34

4)A man of enlightenment who has come to an agreement with the mind and the body... which happens almost simultaneously, because the body follows the mind. As the mind accepts enlightenment, the body accepts it also - it happens simultaneously. Once it has happened, "There is not a single thing," Isan says, "to be abandoned in life." p43

5)If you are enlightened, then there is no duality of this world and that world, of a lower world and a higher world, of a material world and a sacred and holy world. In the moment of perfect and full enlightenment, THERE IS NOT A BIT OF DUST. The mirror is so clean it reflects the whole in its totality. You become the truth, you become the beauty, you become the divine. There is not anything other than your vaster self. You lose your smaller self into the oceanic self, into the self which is cosmic. Who is there to abandon what? One simply enters into the dance and disappears. p44

6)You have to bring enlightenment to your consciousness, and make it evident to the mind that it is a far better way of living. The body is always functioning naturally; only the mind sometimes tries to master the body. That's what all the religions have been telling you. All the scriptures are full of teachings on how to force the body into a certain discipline. Celibacy is a mind idea, the body knows nothing of it. And the mind cannot manage it, so the body goes into a repression, functions abnormally, becomes perverted. The body is very innocent. It is the mind - the priest, the philosopher, the educator - which tries to interfere in everything. p47

7)Maneesha, it is impossible. Enlightenment has to be first. As an experience mind can understand it, and seeing its gracefulness in action can become a friend to it. But before enlightenment mind can only believe, it cannot become a friend.

Mind can only believe that there is enlightenment. At the most the belief is possible - but belief is of no use. The mind has to experience enlightenment in function, not as a belief but as activity. p67

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

Maneesha, this is the last talk on the beautiful series, RINZAI: MASTER OF THE IRRATIONAL. To be with Rinzai... it has been a beautiful time. To make him our contemporary, just for a few moments, was pure nectar. This will be the last talk on Rinzai.

Before discussing Rinzai's sutra and the anecdote, Avirbhava, the director-general of the Museum of Gods, has brought a great new member. First I will tell you about the new member of her museum.

His name is Dragon.

"According to the Old Testament, the dragon is said to have descended from the Babylonian female dragon called Tiamet. In Christianity the dragon represents the devil; hence, paintings of numerous saints' lives depict combat between them and a dragon, representing God and the devil.

"Where the West sees the dragon as evil, the East considers him to be benevolent. In China it was said that when he died, the emperor ascended to heaven like a dragon. It was believed that when a dragon ascends to heaven, the pressure of its feet on the clouds causes rain. Also in Chinese mythology the dragon is a messenger of heaven who revealed yin and yang, the two forces of the universe, to the Yellow Emperor.

"In the I-Ching the dragon symbolizes wisdom.

"In Japan, the three-clawed dragon represents the emperor, having both imperial and spiritual power."

This Museum of Gods is immensely significant. It declares the end of all gods. They belong only to the museums. That is the very purpose of the Museum of Gods. Their relevance to life is finished; they can only be remembered as mythologies, as fictions, as exploitations by the priesthood, as pathological inventions of insane people.

The future man will not have a god; the future man will be a god. For long enough we have been under fictitious entities. It is time to declare ourselves free from all fictions.

The new man's god is no more in the heaven, it is in his own being - more intimate, more close.

The new man will not worship the god, the new man will live the god, will sing the god, will dance the god; he himself will be the temple of the god. Hence I have called the new man the buddha.

Now I will call Avirbhava to bring the dragon.

(A GREEN, PAPIER MACHE DRAGON ENTERS GAUTAMA THE BUDDHA AUDITORIUM FROM THE BACK AND STOMPS AROUND THE HALL. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE IT SPRAYS FROM ITS FANGED MOUTH STEAM AND SMOKE. EVERYBODY IS LAUGHING WHILE ORIENTAL MUSIC PLAYS. LAUGHTER, CHINESE MUSIC, HAND-CLAPPING. SEE PHOTO ON PAGE 190.)    P169

JOSHU the Lion's Roar OSHO <2>

Joshu
JOSHU the Lion's Roar 
<2>
OSHO (Author) October 1988 Publisher: Rebel Pub. House Hardcover: 185 pages Language: English

Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次  

1)Now there is something to be told to you which is not directly said in this anecdote. There used to be a very ancient temple, Jui-hsiang, meaning holy image - a temple of Buddha. But it has disappeared through natural disaster, in an earthquake. That must have been before Joshu was born. His statement that he is coming from Jui-hsiang temple... and Jui-hsiang temple exists no more!

In Japan the earthquake is a daily experience. That's why wood and bamboo have become so important in Japan. You cannot make houses of marble; any moment the earthquake can come and then it will be very dangerous, it will kill. You can make only very thin walls; most of the walls are made of paper. You have to use very lightweight material, so even if the earthquake comes it cannot kill you. Just because of those earthquakes, bamboo has taken on a special significance in Japanese life.

Joshu's saying that he is coming from Jui-hsiang temple means that he remembers his past life, that he was a priest in the Jui-hsiang temple which exists no more. P5

2)Maneesha, the word 'zazen' has to be understood before I can start discussing the sutras that you have brought. Zen I have explained to you. It comes from the Sanskrit dhyan. Buddha never used Sanskrit as a part of his revolution. Sanskrit was the language of the learned, it has never been a language of the masses. Buddha broke away from tradition and started speaking in the language of the masses. It was a revolt against scholarship, learnedness, the pundits, the rabbis, the people of the scripture, whose whole heart is in their books. And because of those books they cannot see the reality.

Buddha started speaking in the language of his province, Pali. In Pali, dhyan changes its form a little bit. It becomes jhan. When Bodhidharma reached China, jhan again changed, into Chinese; it became ch'an. And when the school of Rinzai took the same message to Japan from China, the word ch'an came very close to the very original Pali, jhan. It became in Japan, zen.p68

3)What is zazen? Zen is, just once or twice a day... in the early morning when the sun is rising and the birds are singing, you sit silently by the side of the ocean or the river or the lake. It is not something that you have to do continuously. It is just like any other activity. You take your bath - that does not mean that for twenty-four hours you have to continue taking a shower. Zazen exactly means that:

taking a shower continuously. Zen is a periodic effort to see the truth. Zazen is a twenty-four hour, around-the-clock remaining aware, alert, in the state beyond mind. Your activities should show it, your words should show it. Even your walking should show it - the grace, the beauty, the truth, the validity, the authority.

So zazen is an extension of Zen around the clock. Just because of zazen, monasteries came into existence. Because if you are living an ordinary life of a householder you cannot manage to contemplate, to be in the state of Zen twenty-four hours a day. You have to do many other things.

And there is every possibility that while you are doing other things you may forget the undercurrent.

So monasteries came into existence. The society decided that the people who want to go deeper into their being are doing such a great experiment for the whole humanity, because if even one man becomes a buddha, with him the whole humanity rises a little bit in consciousness.p69

4)Tathagata is the most lovely word used for Gautam Buddha. Just out of respect, the disciples don't use the name Gautam Buddha, they use the word "Tathagata." And tathagata is very meaningful.

It comes from tathata. Tathata means thisness, just here and now - a man who always remains here and now, never wavering towards past or future, is a tathagata. He neither goes anywhere nor comes back, he simply remains here. Time passes by, clouds pass by, but nothing touches him. His being here is from eternity to eternity. That is the most cherished word the followers of Buddha used to address him.p72

5)The new man will not think of Christianity as a religion, or Hinduism or Mohammedanism or any other religion, because they are all carrying a dead past. Life has escaped from them long before.

They have not laughed for centuries; they have not been in tune with the universal music. They have forgotten the language of dance.

Zen alone seems a possibility for the future man. It will survive - when all other religions are gone, Zen will be the only religion around the earth. In fact, all other religions are already dead.

Just because of old habit, old conditioning, we go on carrying them, but they have not contributed anything to human consciousness. Rather than contributing they have destroyed much. They have enslaved man, they have oppressed man, they have put man against man; they have created immense violence, war, massacre.

Zen is a religion of flowers, is a religion of songs, is a religion of ecstasy. It has nothing in it which in any way tries to avoid life in any form. It lives life in its totality - and the miracle is that by living totally, each moment becomes so precious... there is no way to measure the beauty of the moment when a person is total, herenow. P138

NANSEN : The Point Of Departure OSHO<2>

Nansen
NANSEN : The Point Of Departure<2>
OSHO oct,1988 Publisher: REBEL PUBL Hardcover p198

★★★★★
Osho最後のZENシリーズ目次 

1)The young fellow, Tozan, who was not a disciple of Nansen, he was just traveling... That too has to be understood: in China and in Japan and other Buddhist countries the monks go on traveling from one monastery to another monastery, until they find the heart with whom their heart beats in a dance. They are received in every monastery with respect. They stay for a few days and if nothing happens there, they move on with gratitude that, "You allowed us to stay here for four days."

This young man, Tozan, was not a resident monk in the monastery of Nansen.p12

2)BELOVED OSHO,

WHY HAVE YOU CALLED THE SERIES NANSEN: THE POINT OF DEPARTURE?

Because he opened the gate for the first time, making it clear that the sacred and the secular are one, just different ways of seeing. There is no need to torture the body to purify the soul. They both can dance together as sacred a dance as possible. And unless a spirituality transforms even your body, it is not much of a spirituality.

Zorba has not to be killed, Zorba has to be transformed. Zorba is the buddha, just in the seed form.

You don't have to destroy the seeds, you have to find a right soil, a right climate for the seeds, and wait for the season when the clouds bring the first rains, and your seeds will start sprouting. The seeds and the flowers are not separate - the seed is the flower hidden, the flower is the seed come out in the open.

That's why, Maneesha, I have called this series NANSEN: THE POINT OF DEPARTURE. From the past spirituality Nansen is a tremendous departure, accepting secular and sacred as together, one - two aspects of one reality.p16

3)BELOVED OSHO,

YOU HAVE OFTEN SAID YOU WILL HAVE NO SUCCESSORS. BUT WON'T ALL THOSE WHO LOVE YOU BE YOUR SUCCESSORS IN THAT WE CARRY YOU IN OUR BLOOD AND BONES AND SO YOU ARE PART OF US FOREVER?

Maneesha, the concept of the successor is bureaucratic. The very idea of succession is not the right idea in the world of consciousness. That's why I have said, I will not have successors. But you are right in saying that you will carry in your bones and in your blood my love, my insight. But don't use the word 'successor', rather use the words 'you will be me'. Why be so far away, a successor, when you can be me? Be so empty that I can make a home in you, that your emptiness can absorb my emptiness, that your heart can have the same dance as my heart. It is not succession; it is transmission.

The very idea of succession is political. Only one person can be a successor, so there is bound to be competition, ambition. There is bound to be a subtle struggle to be closer to the master, to force others away. It may not be on the surface but, underneath, the problem will remain in the disciples:

"Who is going to be the successor?"

I destroy the whole conception. Every disciple who has loved has become one with the master.

There is no need of any competition, nor one successor. It is for everybody who has offered himself in deep gratitude, who has become one in a certain sense with the master's presence. There is no need of any competition. Thousands can have the same experience, millions can have the same experience.

To avoid politics in religion, I have said that I will not have successors. I want religion to be absolutely devoid of ambition, competition, being higher than another, putting everybody lower than oneself.

With me you are all equal. And I trust and love you, that you will prove this equality. In equals there is no competition; there is a combined effort. You will all carry my message, but nobody will be higher or lower, nobody will be a successor. All will be my lovers and they will carry me.

I am reminded of a case: Ramakrishna had a cancer of the throat. In the last stage it became impossible even to drink water. All his disciples said, "Why don't you ask in your prayers to God to remove this cancer? We know that if you ask, your prayer will be heard. And if your prayer cannot be heard, then all prayers are false."

Ramakrishna was such a man that if his prayer is not heard, it can only mean there is no God, or God is deaf. If Ramakrishna's prayer is not answered, then nobody else in the whole world should hope that his prayer will be answered. So they insisted again and again, but Ramakrishna said, "It does not look right. I close my eyes because you insist. But I cannot ask anything from existence.p30
