My thoughts on Osho

I always have a great respect for Osho because Osho’s writings have helped me lot in becoming a stable person with open and unbiased eyes. It is his bless due to which I am writing and putting articles in front of you. Below is the revised and edited article on Osho written by me more than year back. In article I have used present tense because I fill he is still alive in his sayings, meditations and theories.

“We can say Osho a God or a Philosopher or a Guide or a Motivator or a Psychologist or a Friend. The simple answer is, everything is present in him. He was described as the modern Guru, who is much ahead of his time. This is true from his way of thinking. He has more followers abroad as compared to Indian. Most of his followers are from the high class and are mostly highly educated. He doesn’t have much fellowship in lower class, because he does not perform any miracles. He doesn’t says us to follow anybody or him.

He himself is a highly educated person. His theory about world and God are totally revolutionary. He is one of ever known revolutionaries of his time. He tried to revolutionize the whole system of religions. He is one of boldest persons who ever lived on earth. He challenged many kind of myths associated with religion. He doesn’t ask us to follow anybody or him. He is not in favour of most of religions and their conditioning to us. According to him, we are not what we should be.

However, we are the reflection of our parents, societies and religions. Our mind is totally conditioned to follow some particular alternates. We are imprisoned in to our minds. Mind is directing our all actions. According to him we should not be slave of our mind, but mind should be slave of us. To achieve this we should first un-condition ourselves from our past. He says us to not suppress anything, but express it in fullness and do it to the extent that it never arises again. Therefore, he is in the favour of open sex. He is only guru who compared sex with meditation. He is the first to talk about sex only still a much personal matter for lots of people.

He is master of psychology; this is clear from his theories. His meditation methods are masterpiece of time. He has the talent of making simple breathing in to a meditation. He is very bold in introducing new ideas. His techniques have done wonders to lot of persons. According to him we should be like a child, a totally unconditioned being on earth. He told us to forget everything and become like child again. He told us to follow our inner self. Live the life to utmost. Creating and breaking our own rules. Thus discovering what we are really?
