Remain at Ease

Dear One,
Meditation is a kind of medicine. Its use is only for the time being.
Once you have learned the quality, then you need not do any particular meditation.
Then meditation has to spread all over your life.

Talking or silent, moving, unmoving, the essence is at ease.
The essence is at ease, that is the key word.
The essence is at ease, that is the key statement.
Do whatsoever you are doing, but at the deepest core remain at ease, cool, calm, centered.


Vastness of the Sky

Light Up

Remember the Vastness of the Ocean or the Sky

Let everything else pass by


Your only wealth

Dear one!

Remember, only that which you can take with you when you leave the body is important. That means, except meditation, nothing is important. Except awareness, nothing is important, because only awareness cannot be taken away by death. Everything else will be snatched away, because everything else comes from without.

Only awareness wells up within. That cannot be taken away. And the shadows of awareness – compassion, love – they cannot be taken away. They are intrinsic parts of awareness. You will be taking with you only whatsoever awareness you have attained. That is your only real wealth.


Penetrate to the centre

Become silent. Close your eyes.
No movement, as if you are just a stone statue.
Now, go in … deeper and deeper.
Fearlessly, penetrate like an arrow, to the very center of your being …Remember that you are only a watcher.
You are neither the body nor the mind,
but only a mirror reflecting,
without any judgment,
a pure reflection of the moon in the lake.


Take life as easy as possible

Take life as easily as possible. But people don’t understand me.
I say to them: “Life is a mystery. It is not to be solved but to be lived.”
And somebody has asked me, “Osho, when you said that, I heard, “Life is a MISERY, not to be solved but to be lived.”

That is up to you. To me it is a mystery, not to be solved but to be lived, but you can hear it as “misery.”

Don’t make unnecessary problems for yourself, so that your whole energy can become focused on the essential problem. And the essential problem is only one: Know thyself.


Act Consiously

Your daily life is your temple, and your religion.
Act in awareness, act consciously, and many things will start changing.


Twenty minutes a day

You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day

Unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.
