Osho TalksOsho or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh was born in 1931 in Central India. He was a charismatic and gifted speaker who became the leader of a worldwide new spiritual movement. It is said that at the age of 21 he attained enlightenment or Samadhi. At the time he was studying philosophy at the University of Saugar. On receiving a masters degree he taught philosophy at the University of Jabalpur for nine years. As well as teaching philosophy he also began to attract disciples to follow his own eclectic mix of philosophy and religion. In 1966 he decided to leave his teaching post and give full attention to his role as spiritual Master.

In 1970 he settled for a while in Mumbai. He began initiating disciples (known as neo-sannyasins) and took on the role of a spiritual teacher. In his discourses, he reinterpreted writings of religious traditions, mystics and philosophers from around the world. In 1974 he moved with his disciples to Pune, India. Here he established a new ashram in a comfortable setting of 6 acres. In 1980 he was attacked by a Hindu fundamentalist who disagreed with Osho’s unconventional stance on religion and spirituality. It is said that due to police incompetence the assailant was never convicted.

In 1981, Osho relocated to the United States and his followers established an intentional community, later known as Rajneeshpuram, in the state of Oregon. Within a year the leadership of the commune became embroiled in a conflict with local residents, primarily over land use, which was marked by hostility on both sides. Osho's large collection of Rolls-Royce automobiles was also notorious. The Oregon commune collapsed in 1985 when the news spread that some members of the commune had committed a number of serious crimes, including a bioterror attack (food contamination) on the citizens of The Dalles.

Osho was arrested shortly afterwards and charged with immigration violations. He was deported from the United States in accordance with a plea bargain. Twenty-one countries denied him entry, causing Osho to travel the world before returning to Pune, where he died in 1990. His ashram is today known as the Osho International Meditation Resort. His syncretic teachings emphasize the importance of meditation, awareness, love, celebration, creativity and humour – qualities that he viewed as being suppressed by adherence to static belief systems, religious tradition and socialisation. His teachings have had a notable impact on Western New Age thought, and their popularity has increased markedly since his death.

Osho was very controversial in many ways and you may like the guy or not but in the end it all comes down to this..does it work for you? Like Buddha said; truth is what works. Forget about the guy, if he was or was hot enlightened. Who cares? Listen en read what he talked about. It is about the message. He inspired alot of people to go in and meditate and that is what counts right? If he inspires you..enjoy it!

This commenting system is totally outdated! But anyway, I found Neil Patel's comment to be a great one! He was right on! Osho had 3 distinct speaking phases the way I see it: The 60s was Osho at his fiery best traveling across the India and talking exclusively in hindi to huge masses and private audiences alike, fearlessly challenging the decadence in Hindu society! The 70s slowed him down a bit, but any less captivating. He was relaxed in front of his followers/lovers. He was very fecund then, speaking at length on many remarkable people and philosophies. But mind you, there too he was mainly expressing his thoughts (he was not really concerned with who is talking about!) And then came the 80s, his health had deteriorated quite a bit and he went into a public silence for 3 years or so while in the US. When he started speaking again, he had considerably slowed down. I personally don't relish listening to his talks from those last 6-7 years of his life [1984-90]. But his job was done. He was talking light hearted/non-serious stuff exclusively in English to a western audience. Anyway, cheers!

I can post so many more for the people that don't understand what is going on here...
“I don't speak to teach something; I speak to create something. These are not lectures; these are simply a device for you to become silent, because if you are told to become silent without taking any effort you will find great difficulty.”
“I don't have any doctrine; my talking is really a process of dehypnosis. Just listening to me, slowly, slowly you will be free of all the programs that the society has forced you to believe in.”

“I am making you aware of silences without any effort on your part. My speaking is for the first time being used as a strategy to create silence in you.” Osho

The fact is what comes out of his mouth is truth. I dont care about his ego. You cant fully evict your ego. He is not my god so I dont expect perfection. Its all about the message. Dont kill the messenger

He is speaking to a very young audience, in understanding if not in age. The michael jackson of the gurus. i might even go as far to say the mind set of his audience is nothing more than materialistic infidels, (not infidels as in the absence of religion but as in the absence of spiritual self awareness) He understands the empty shallowness of the capitalistic money punk in depth and feeds on it.

On #1. Osho speaks slowly. It is only in mid 80s that osho changed his speaking style, his earlier discourses are fluent and flawless. Also, english is not his native language. If only you can understand Hindi, never before any Indian has spoken with such mastery as He did. Even best pundits of Hindi considered Him as great Orator.
On #2. Why He speak? Although He was a great Orator He never claim so, He explained "speaking" is just a medium to pass "nothingness", which He admitted, "rarely happen", nevertheless the efforts were legitimate. Those who were stayed after mid 80s proved "worthy" of their discipleship that they were not with Osho because of His Oratory but because something that is "nothing."
On #3. He was a Corn man. Boy O boy! He said it so. How otherwise He would be able to change corn-men like us?? Believe me you would have His temple all across India, if only He had spoken favourablly of Hinduism, rather criticizing the "garbage" in it.
On #4. He was just a scholar. Osho said it repeatedly against the "workings" of Mother Teresa, before Hitchens wrote against her. He explains some critical aspects of "democratic system" before Chomsky could expose it in his legendary ideas of "manufacturing consent". This is not to say Osho was acute. He was wrong on many "facts" like AIDS to do with Homosexuality, capilalism is inevitable virtue.. Osho did not gave any damn importance to this matter, what matter to Him was "here & now", enlightenment.
On #5. Was He enlighten? Great Master!

i do not see on what ground do you call someone a fake, a charlatan, I mean do you find untrue in him saying experience existence as it is, perhaps not spiritual but isnt it more sorted out a way or psychologically healthier way to be rather then to delude yourself in dreams of the future.

I'm glad he knows about truth but it's a shame he can only count to one.

Not for Mediocre minds. Osho can be understood when your awareness rises.

Why does he talk so slowly and ambiguously?

12 years ago

Could it be that truth is what we decide it to be? The concept or idea of truth is not a natural one. Before conscious thought the necessity to impose this label on a certain state was never fathomed by any natural process, or required for that matter. Ultimate truth is a paradox. If we create truth by our conscious thought, it cannot be objectified, by definition. Much in the same way a piece of art can never be objectively viewed, the truth is skewed by its mere proposal.

i have nothing against this man! but for me he was nothing but a phd teacher who had the patience to go through all other philosophers teachings reading them. There is nothing original in whatever he says, he quotes endlessly, hes haughty like nobody's business! He has no self inquiry, rather, he was hypnotized by his knowledge.

I got a nice response from Cool_E_Beans in my mail box, thanks for that but dont see that comment here. I am open to learn from every one and I am learning a lot from the TDF and from the people with their critical reflections, analysis, comments here, so it would be great to hear from you the truth you have found! and I think truth needs to be shared with others....but I still believe that truth needs to be experienced in our life, rather learning, or convincing ourself to accept the learned truth...

Isn´t this guy iluminated ? There are a lot of religions because there is a lot of people looking for the truth.And this guy doesn't know s***. There's great difference between saint and bad book seller... The first one being that saints do walk over the street babling how enlighted they are.

I judge religions by their followers - not its so called "truths". I lived in Byron Bay, where thousands of Osho nuts went to and even Osho himself.

Summary - if you need a Guru, there is something wrong with you. In Osho's case, they need a shower and to read Sheldon Kopp.

God isnt something you can believe, in fact it is "un-believable"

if you say you believe in God, you havent experienced it
and when you do you KNOW it

keep seeking, for it is opened to all who truly seek it

we search the world over for the meaning of God and then we find it within ourselves...

The God i KNOW is interactive and reciprocating- if you arent in an active love affair with the universe your not doing it right

There is only one of us here- and you are it- You are the infinite being-

I just spend the last few hours listening to the first 1:45hr of this series. There is not one thing i heard so far that i would argue about.
Some may think he talks too slow, i think we most often talk too fast, that's how all the rubbish gets out, spitted out from a mind that doesn't take the time to let the words COME in.
It made me imagine what would happen if i sat in a chair with a recorder and talked for 1:45hr about love. Where would my mind take me if i allowed it to guide me...slowly slowly.
I will watch the next and the next, although i have often times heard Osho talk sometimes these talks come at the right time and all of a sudden they feel anew.

I discovered Rajneesh in the 1970s and have most of his books and a large collection of his tapes in which he knowledgeably expounded on the world's major religions from a new and eye opening point of view. Don't forget that he was a professor and a very intelligent man.

He was also an iconoclast and asked us to question and rethink what we have been taught as gospel through challenging us with absurdity via his Rolls Royce collection and by using humor to get us to stop taking ourselves so seriously.

He was also one of the first people to warn about the dangers of AIDS, but at that time the media made fun of him.

What he says is easy for Westerners to understand and I continue to re-read what he says when I need inspiration. Thank goodness his writings and discoursed are still available.

It is better to read Osho lectures then to listen him. He made some good points in his book that i read long time ago... aaaa, I`m lazy to search in may chaos of the room :) Search on internet :D He speaks with common sense, and hi is good psychologist and pedagog.
Sorry for my En. ;)

Wow! We need a lot of patience to watch this 5 hours talk of Osho! He pauses soooo long to speak one sentence! I just watched for 5 minutes and these are my instant thoughts…..

I think religion is essentially needed by a man, that’s why men created religion. And religion was created for specific purpose in a specific time. Therefore, Religion is historical – in order to understand how religion was established we have to go back to the history. some of the truth of religion have already been discovered – they are men made, institutionalized, male dominated, hierarchy, patriarchy, nationalist, exclusive, discriminatory, biased, and so on…..

The point is we must differentiate between religion, faith and spirituality

I have a question - Is there an existing truth? And who defines the truth? or truth can be experienced by people based on their personal, spiritual journey? If there is an existing absolute truth then who has discovered that truth? What is that truth???
Hopefully I will get my answer after watching this 5hrs talk!!

Osho is not enlightened, if you want to learn about a true spiritual master look up Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj-ji.

Also Bhagavan Dass
And Ram Dass
