In I Say Unto You, we are introduced to a dynamic, compassionate, intelligent, loving Jesus, who speaks in a plain then simple way that everyone can understand, rather than the long-faced. Sad and tortured man often depicted doen the centuries.
Osho looks with a crystal-clear perception and humor at Jesus’ work, inviting us see the perception and humor at Jesus’ work, inviting us to parables and miracles as metaphors of the inner would. He gives insight into Jesus’ own search. and his journeys to the ancient mystery schools of Egypt, Kashmir and Tibet that transformed him into one of the most evolved masters of the two paths of love and meditation- so relevant for today’s societies where the sharp functioning of the mind is more valued than the intelligence of the heart.
Osho places Jesus amongst the great mystics of our time: an extraordinary man whose work went unacknowledged edged by his own people and was Misunderstood by the creators by the creators of Christianity.
“When life is a mystery, only then are you religious.”
Osho defies all categorization. As he says, “I am not much of a religious person, I am not a saint, I have nothing to do with spirituality. All those categories are irrelevant about me. You cannot categorize me, you cannot pigeonhole me. But one thing can be said, that my whole effort is to help you release the energy called love-intelligence. If love-intelligence is released, you are healed.”
“It is not a question of repeating any formal prayer, the real question is of the heart- not what you say, but what you mean. It should not be formal; a formal thing becomes dead. It should be alive, authentic, pulsating. It should show your heart, and where you are this moment it should represent it.”
Osho defies categorization His thousand of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social political society today. Osho’s books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it ,”So remember: I am saying is not just for you… I am taking also for the future generation.”
Osho has been described by The Sunday Times in London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by American author Tom Robbins as “the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ". Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people- along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha- who have changed the destiny of India.
About his work Osho has said that he is helping to create the condition for birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha” - capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha.
Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all agees past the highest potential of today’s (and tomorrow’s) science and technology.
Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges pace of contemporary life. His unique Osho Active Meditations are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and though-free relaxation into daily life.
When I talk to you about Jesus, it is not about Jesus. I am not a theologian, not a Christian, not a scholar. Theologians talk “about.” They go round and round, they beat around the bush. I am not going to talk about Jesus, I am going to talk Jesus. And when I talk about Jesus, it is not that I am taking about him, rather, he talks himself. I give him way, I become a passage. All that I do is that I don’t hinder him. That is the only way to talk about Jesus or Buddha or Krishna. And when I will talk Jesus I will not talk about Christ. Jesus is real, Christ is a principle. Jesus is concrete, Christ is abstract. Jesus is a man like you and me, of blood and bone. His heart beats. He laughs, he cries, he loves, he lives.
Christ is a dead concept, bloodless; there is no heart beathing there. Christianity is concerned with Christ, I am not concerned with Christ. The world Christ is beautiful, but corrupted, contaminated, polluted. The whole beauty of it has destroyed. Whenever a word is used by theologians it loses meaning and purity and innocence - then it is no longer virgin. Jesus is still virgin, Christ is corrupted. Christ is a concept; Jesus is reality, concrete reality.
