“No need to hide, no need to cover oneself. No need to be afraid: God is love and God is the judge,” says Osho to an initiate in darshan.

Osho gives the name Deva Prayoga to the new sannyasin, which means divine experiment. “From the known one has to go always into the unknown and one day from the unknown into the unknowable.”

Vipassana’s body died this afternoon. Most of this chapter contains a description of the death and sannyasins’ reactions to it. Then follows a description of the celebration and Osho’s discourse about her death.

Osho speaks to a new sannyasin very supportively about hypnosis and declares that once a person is capable of going into the past, he becomes automatically capable of going into the future, because the process is the same: “…ordinarily everything about the past and the future of a mechanical man can be known.”

A sannyas darshan: “Shreyas … means ‘the ultimate good’ – and that’s the only approach towards God. If you become good you become godly, and when the good becomes total, you become God himself.”

Osho gives sannyas to Anutosh and says, “Nothing ever succeeds with the mind. It can’t afford it, it can’t allow it. It lives in the tension between that which is and that which should be. … To understand this is to get out of it.”

Osho looking down

Sannyas darshan of Veet Nisha, from Believing the Impossible Before Breakfast, Ch 27, dated 27 February 1978: “To open your eyes needs courage because you may have to see things that you never wanted to see in yourself.”

A sannyasin says: I’m going back to pursue my study of astrology and to try to use it as a medium to communicate with people – not for its predictative qualities but just as a psychological tool…. in pointing out blocks and indicating how best we can use our energy.

Osho darshan Laxmi

Tonight Sagar came to darshan, telling Osho that Laxmi (the secretary of the organization) has asked him to leave the ashram. He asked Osho if he were really to leave or if this was a message to indicate that he should apply himself more to the work.

“Down the ages man has been searching to find how to conquer death. And in fact there is no need to search, because death is an illusion,” says Osho

Osho in darshan

During sannyas darshan, Osho says to Anand Maria (Praveeta), “Rebel against all that is untrue, rebel against that which is imposed by others. Rebel against the status quo, rebel against all the vested interests. Rebel against the past.”

Sarito has just come too; he’s the architect from America. He is grey-haired, has glasses; his energy feels young, in touch.

Having given sannyas to a man from England, the twin brother of a sannyasin, Osho explained the meaning of his name – Anand Bhagwata – to him, and then went on to talk about the significance of having a new name….

Osho darshan (14)

A couple, newly returned from the West, are present. The man says that whenever he has to deal with authorities – for example to get a visa – or even sees a policeman, he feels tense.

A sannyasin, who is a dancer, says: Since I came to Poona I have been sick four times. There is no desire to do any activities. I thought I was going into a more devotional path but now I think I can go into meditation.

Osho Pune 1

Nirupam means unique. This is one of the greatest paradoxes of life, that we are not separate from the whole, yet each individual is unique.
