Purpose of life

Experiencing the Philosia moment in life is the purpose of life.

Opinion below is as per my experience and little knowledge and belief. I beg my pardon before writing it for reason if anyone got hurt unintentionally too.

In Bangladesh and in West Bengal, India there are people who belong to wandering community that depends on livelihood by singing ‘Baul Songs’.This tradition, it seems, existed since last 500-1000 years but made famous and known to people, as per Osho, by Lalon Fakhir, of West Bengal.People are known as Boul people and their songs in local language give teachings to poor peoples, on which their livelihood depends, to live in harmony with nature and follow “Laws of nature”. They got fed by those poor people for singing these songs as they believe that through them their children got educated in right direction. Baul people accepts food happily not out of mercy but because they believe that nature provided food, space, air and water to everyone, in abundance. Some people, who make storage of them more than needed or for future needs, make it hard for others to get it their daily bread and butter. So by accepting their due from those people that are not at mercy.

All this just to understand the very fundamental thing that they made their songs based upon nature as the medium because it can be understood by even poor iliterate people too. That fundamental theme is that ever human being is basically in search of “Adhaar Manus” i. e. described as “The original face” by Lao Tzu, as followers of Zen and OSHO knows well.

Perhaps, Jesus has discovered his original face.The first inhalation by a face after separation from eternity, that is constant and eternal. This inhalation is after birth out of only virgin or unchanging or constant existence. Since it is constant and unchanging so even after giving birth its virginity remains unchanged.In Hinduism it is said as the full, whole, remains as full even when the whole has taken birth from it. This these Baul singers called as “Adhaar Manus”.

So as a human being the search ends with the exhalation of last breath in eternity i e Nirvana, by Buddhist. Moksha, by Hindus. Then one is free from the cycle of birth and death. But to know how to breath last in eternity or existence, one must experience i.e. see, as per Zen or Osho, or hear,as per Nanak-Nadari, the existence and the discover the first breath, i.e. Adhhar Manus, too.

Perhaps, as per OSHO, Jesus was first to describe God as within, self, and without, no-self, both. Before him Buddha discovered God as without ‘no-self‘ and Hindu believed God within as ‘self‘. For experiencing without Buddha has not given any practical method that can be followed by ordinary people. Later modified Buddhism i.e.  Zen developed a method they call as Witnessing in other words it can be described as ‘sitting silently, doing nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.

JESUS gave compassion and service as method for experiencing both at a time. When you serve with compassion you forgot your ‘self’ completely i e experiencing the ‘no-self’. By practicing it honestly any day one can encounter “Self” by seeing the existence or hearing the song of existence.

Earlier teachings stressed that one has to achieve one goal at least in this very life i.e. either find or discover your ‘Adhaar Manus’ i.e. Original Face or discover your ‘Self’ or existence through ‘no-self’ or directly. Then that person cannot be stopped for experiencing the second. This un-satisfaction is said to be good for humanity.

OSHO

As we grow we need to become more efficient so as to earn our bread and butter hence we become robotic. While in our childhood we acted consciously during every act. This is why even the work was relaxing like a play. This awareness that we have lost is needed to be regained or discovered.

Osho says “At any moment you close your eyes, first you will see thoughts, a layer of thinking all around you, thoughts vibrating – one coming, another going – a crowd, a traffic. Remain silent for a few seconds, and suddenly you will see that thinking is no longer there but dreaming has started. You are dreaming that you have become the president of a country, or you have found a brick of gold on the road, or you have found a beautiful woman or a man, and suddenly you start projecting; dreams start functioning. If you continue dreaming for a long time, one moment will come when you will fall asleep – thinking, dreaming, sleep, and from sleep again to dreaming and thinking. This is how your whole life revolves. Real awareness is not known yet, and that real awareness is what Patanjali says will destroy ignorance – not knowledge, but awareness. We collect knowledge just to befool ourselves and others.”—————-Osho, Yoga:The science of the soul.

The mind is biggest hurdle in our inner journey. It is helpful too but only up to a certain altitude after that it needed to be disconnected from it because then it starts creating more trouble. So just like first stage of rocket engine is left to drop on the Earth so that the satellite can be launched in its orbit, our mind too needs to be dropped in subtle way so that even the mind could not recognise being dropped!

Awareness meditation is of great help in getting this job done.

Osho says “The deep problem is: how to become aware, how not to be unconscious. From where to start? Don’t try to fight with some very deep-rooted habit. You will be defeated. The fur coat will not leave you so easily. Start with very neutral habits.

For example: you go for a walk; just be aware that you are walking. (Try to Walk with witnessing consciousness).

It is a neutral thing. Nothing is invested in it. You are looking at the trees; just look at the trees and be aware. Don’t look with clouded eyes. Drop all thinking. Just for a few moments even, just look at the trees, and just look. Look at the stars. Swimming, just be alert to the inner feeling that happens inside your body while you are swimming, the inner. Feel it. You are taking a sun bath; feel how you start feeling inside: warm, settled, rested. While falling asleep, just watch how you are feeling inside. Inside, outside – try to be aware of the coolness of the sheets, the darkness in the room, the silence outside, or the noise outside. Suddenly, a dog barks – neutral things; bring your consciousness to them first. And then, by and by, proceed.

Then, try to be aware of your good habits, because good habits re not so deep-rooted as bad habits. Good habits need much sacrifice on your part, so very few people try to cultivate good habits. And even those who try to cultivate good habits try very few good habits; just underneath, many bad habits are there.

First try neutral, then good, then move by and by to bad habits. And finally, remember that each habit has to be made aware. Once you have become aware of your whole habitual pattern, that habitual pattern is your mind. Any day the shift will happen. Suddenly, you will be in the no-mind. When all the habits of your life have become aware, you don’t do them unconsciously suddenly, a shift will happen. You will find yourself in emptiness. That is the original mind which is neither pure nor impure.”——————-Osho, Yoga-The science of the soul, Chapter 3, Returning to the original mind.

Awareness meditation is the way worked for me and I tried it first during brushing my teeth in the morning after trying 8-10 meditations over period of 15 years! So there is no need to reinvent the circle for you. May be you too find it suitable otherwise with Dynamic meditation and/or Kundalini in the evening it is suitable for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho for contemporary people that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

This is an opportunity for learning and knowing Osho through these sannyasins who lived in his presence and brought to life his words in best possible quality in all formats.

Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.

Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
