The junction point between silence and dynamism – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

The junction point between silence and dynamism – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

1. (Dr. Hagelin:) Maharishi has said many times in these conferences and in his books that the nature of life is bliss. However, last week Maharishi made a surprising comment. He said regarding the two fundamental values of consciousness, silence and dynamism, that fear played a central role in their interaction. Would Maharishi please comment on this apparent contradiction? What role does fear play in creation, and how does it relate to the idea that the nature of life is bliss?

2. The total Natural Law has to be lively in every grain of creation. All the different degrees of dynamism and all the different degrees of silence have to be lively in every grain of creation.

3. For the ever-expanding universe to be administered, the administrator has to be in every grain of creation. At the same time, He has to be in the total infinity of creation. So, by requirement, it has to be unmanifest. And these two opposite values naturally come together making everyone hide the other. Chhandas is the quality of hiding.

4. When our awareness opens to this field of Transcendental Consciousness, it has already pierced through the covering that hides the two. And when it pierces through the covering that hides silence and dynamism in a unified state, then it functions like a lamp at the door. This is the whole Nyaya system of knowledge in the Vedic literature, the knowledge of the junction point.

5. Junction point is that which hides this and that, but at the junction point it’s a very fine point. Practice is needed only to make this fine demarcation between the silence and dynamism a visual reality.

6. Because this experience is so fine, one has to go through this experience over and over again to be at home with it. When we are at home with total Natural Law, every thought is supported by total Natural Law.

7. Nothing is impossible for the Will of God. That is why education should open the individual awareness to this inner reality.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is widely regarded as one of the foremost scientists in the field of consciousness

OSHO: Jesus Never Died on the Cross (Preview)

Osho, a contemporary mystic speaks on virtually every aspect of human consciousness. In these talks, the human condition, whether the mind, the heart, love or awareness is exposed with humor and insight, as never before.

Here Osho speaks about the myth that is the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

“The resurrection of Jesus Christ may be possible but not the resurrection of Christianity. In fact Jesus never died on the cross…”

Osho 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.

The Awakened One – Sri Bhagavan

Mind-blowing compilation of the weekly webcast teachings by Sri Bhagavan, co-founder of the Oneness University, a spiritual school established for the full flowering of the human being. The audio teachings presented here were given for contemplation since September 2010, one for each week, and continue to serve their purpose as keys to a deepened Awareness.

“Awakening is a process where you wake up from the dream to reality.
Life this way is so ordinary that it is extraordinary.
One feels that, that is how one has always been.”

~ Sri Amma Bhagavan, from the New Year Message 2011

Sri Bhagavan emphasizes that these teachings are basically there to recognize oneself having “made it” as well as for others to recognize oneself as that. However, to practice them or try to live accordingly would be of no use or benefit to anyone. Grace & Grace alone can take you to “where you have always been”, to realize the “impossibility of change”, since there is nothing one could “do” in order to “get there”. A strong passion for getting released of all suffering and at the same time feeling utterly helpless about it is a highly conducive condition for Awakening to occur, as perfectly directed by one’s own indwelling Presence or Divine Intelligence.

“So what happens? You suddenly discover there is unconditional Love. There’s unconditional Joy. You’re no more moved into the past. You’re no more moved into the future. You are in the Present, not because you are trying to do something. It’s just happening all the time. And suddenly you find that the world is changed. Nothing has happened to the world. You have changed and the world looks very, very different. Where hitherto life had no meaning, no purpose. You were searching for a vision. You were searching for a purpose. Now, you are Living Now. A living being would not ask, “What is the meaning of Life? What is the purpose of Life?” Because he is Living. This very naturally and spontaneously happens when the Awakening does occur, and it has occurred to thousands of people.”

~ Sri Bhagavan
