Kyozan was a very simple man - not the philosophic kind, not a poet, nor a sculptor. Nothing can be said about him except that he was absolutely authentic, honest. If he does not know a thing he will say so, even at the risk of people thinking that he has fallen from his enlightenment. But this makes him a unique master.
Zen is full of unique masters, but Kyozan's uniqueness is his simplicity. He is just like a child.
About the Author:
Osho has explained that his name is derived from William James' word 'oceanic' which means dissolving into the ocean. Oceanic describes the experience, He says, but what about the experiencer?
For that we use the word 'Osho'.
Later, He Came to find out that 'Osho' has also been used historically in the Far East, meaning "The Blessed One, on Whom the Sky Showers Flowers."
From the Back of the Book:
These are not sermons in a church: these are communications.
A discourse, a sermon, remains within the limits of the mind. Only a communication can raise you beyond the mind, and that which is beyond the mind is Zen.
