The Diamond Sword: Rediscovering Meditation The Forgotten Treasure of India
The Diamond Sword: Rediscovering Meditation The Forgotten Treasure of India
by Osho
Description

Preface

Miseries are not clinging to you, remember – you are clinging to your miseries.

You can drop your miseries only when some inner meaning starts flowering in you. Miseries can be dropped only when meditation starts blooming in you because then you starts having a positive fragrance; it isn't negative anymore.

That's the whole magic of meditation: it transforms your emptiness into a positive fulfillment, into something overwhelming. Emptiness becomes silence, emptiness becomes peace, and emptiness becomes divine, it becomes godliness.

There is no greater magic than meditation. To transform the negative into the positive, to transform darkness into light, that is the miracle of meditation. To transform a trembling person into a fearless soul, to transform a person who was clinging to every stupid thing into a nonclinger, into a nonpossessor, that is what happens through meditation.

Buddha used to call meditation a great sword, it cuts your problems at the very root. It makes you aware that you need not be afraid to your inner abyss. It is beautiful, it is blissful. You have not experienced its bliss and beauty because you have never gone into it, you have always been escaping. You have not tasted of it; it is nectar, it is not poison. But how are you going to know without tasting it? You are running away from something which can become your life's fulfillment. You are running away from something which is the only thing worth achieving. You are running away from yourself.

From the Jacket

In response to questions from individuals and members of the press, Osho speaks on the essential and timeless path of meditation – focusing on India's ancient heritage of inquiry into transforming human consciousness, of going within ourselves rather than looking to the outer world for fulfillment and recognition.

Set against the backdrop of his return to India after having been illegally deported from the United States, and after a subsequent "World Tour" where he was denied entry to 21 countries, Osho uses those recent experiences to highlight his essential message for the whole of humanity – to grow in consciousness, to discover individual freedom and truth through tapping into our inner treasure of awareness.

Osho continues to inspire millions of people worldwide in their search to define a new approach to individual spirituality that is self-directed and responds to the everyday challenges of contemporary life. His unique perspective encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential. Of Western science and technology, and he was named by the Sunday Times of London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century." The American novelist Tom Robbins has called him "the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ."

Back of the Book

If we want mankind to become healthy; if we want the terrorism that is increasing every-where and becoming more and more explosive and violent to end; if we want the flames of fire to turn into flowers, then there is only one way. That way is called Samadhi, enlightenment.

Become natural, become ordinary; live in equanimity, and do not remain unacquainted with the secret that is hidden within you. The moment you become acquainted with it, a great revolution will take place, the revolution which turns dirt into gold, which turns an ordinary man into a Buddha, which picks you up from the ground and takes you to the heights of the stars in the sky.

I have moved around the world saying only this one thing, and have been amazed and astonished that people are not ready to hear it. People close their doors, countries close their doors, because what will happen then to their religions, to their religious scriptures?

I know only one scripture. That is you.
