Why Mystics added Zero as a number in mathematics?

Infinite at centre-source:Airtel app

First of all I wish to make it clear that for me ‘first Satori’ means experiencing the beyond for first time, and then there is a path gets created between the person and the beyond. So all learning that drips through me after that first experience is also a Satori because it happens only in meditative state. I need not have to sit in the usual posture of meditation because I practiced and reached through awareness or mindfulness meditation. So during any act that I am doing meditatively fully immersed and for a moment the ego dissolved and the existence drips its knowledge into me. Perhaps, you will not find it in any book etc.

In Arabic texts, and ancient sculptures  too, they mention a ‘wisdom snake’. It is a snake making full circle so that the snake can eat its tail. It means when a person attains wisdom, he comes to this understanding that every person is at a junction of beginning point and end point of circle of life. In India we too consider that life is a ‘cyclical projection’ of God-said Vivekananda referring to Vedanta text in a lecture. [extended it to holographic projection (after one satori on it) in one of my posts to better understand it as per technology available today for young generation people].

Normal person is living life at periphery of that circle, and the inherent imbibed/embedded challenge set by God is to complete it in this life itself. All the restlessness or feeling of unsatisfactory achievement after achieving it, is due to this embedded system not delivering satisfaction from outer achievements. Only inner achievement ie ‘Wisdom circle completion’ is able to satisfy its condition. The moment it completes, the person falls from periphery to the centre of the circle. This falling is called as acceptance of Bhakti by God or Guru’s Kripa in Gyan Marg/meditation/evolutionary mysticism. It happens on its own because one can only able to satisfy the condition when the end point meets the beginning of the circle. This falling for first time is called ‘SATORI’, in Zen. Still one is living at periphery but as and when this coincidence of beginning meeting the end happens, there drips the knowledge from beyond. All other Satori experiences are like that. 

Nirvana is completely leaving the periphery and permanently sitting at centre of circle, and to give lectures to disciples like Osho did, he make himself available at periphery because we can be communicated by sitting at our level. Still he used to say that those who are enlightened disciples are getting my guidance in silence too. Buddha’s transfer of light(lotus) Mahakashyap was actually opposite, Mahakashyap in that moment was able to drop permanently at centre without Buddha speaking any word. Later Buddha gave him the Lotus flower as a mark of his endorsement to his achievement. 

So the invention of such circle with centre gave another number in mathematics as ‘शून्य’ or Zero. That time all mathematics was geometry based, and no one can draw a zero. It will have a width and length whether it is of nano sized. All measurements begin with Zero but no one can draw it. Why? Because the zero is where the infinite meets! Both are undefined but they exists, and human being is that junction of Zero with Infinity. You have to lay down yourself to draw a zero, but you are the person drawing it! So it is undefined. On attaining Nirvana (Satori in Mohammedens, Christians and Jews) the person, zero till date, says I am the infinite. अहं ब्रह्मस्मि or the master praised ‘तत् त्वम असि श्वेतकेतु’. The one who is measuring is also a number in our mathematics. To let him remember continuously that the zero is where the infinite meets, it is added to mathematics! Simple.

Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

Osho International Online (OIO) provides facility to learn these from your home,

1. through Osho Meditation Day @€20.00 per person. OIO rotate times through three timezones NY,Berlin and Mumbai. You can prebook according to the convenient time for you.

2. There is OSHO Evening Meeting streaming which can be accessed every day at local time starting 6:40 pm (of which Osho says that he wants his people to view it all over the world and these days it is possible) and 16 of the meditations mostly with video instructions and so much more on iOSHOthrough App.

3. There is a 7 days Free Trial also for people who would like to first try it out.

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’.

Disclaimer Credit : YouTube Channel Osho's Philosophy Basic schooling at St Joseph’s Higher Secondary School, completed Diploma in Civil and then passed Institution of Engineers (India) in Civil Engineering. Specialisation in Earthquake resistant design of Reinforced Concrete buildings. Served Government of India for 20+ years and taken voluntary retirement to embark upon long pending spiritual journey. Lived active social life, raising kids. Osho ( 阿闍黎 , 和尚 ) came in my life when Mr Chiman Singh Rathore, a telephone operator in local telecommunication department of Govt. of India visited my father wearing maroon robe in 1982 after taking sannyas from Osho and requested my father to do the same. I was witness of this whole conversation. He left 2-3 books of Osho on his table, and I started reading those books. I started practising the experiments that is suggested by Osho in those books and found then miraculous. I kept reading his books and started practising Zen meditation from next year. After 10 years I came to know about awareness meditation and started practising it during brushing. This meditation is miraculous. It has changed me completely over a period of 20 years. After retirement I got first Philosia moment in 2017. It is also called as Satori in Japanese Zen. And in October 2021 I am able to experience separation of soul from body means beyond body experience. This experience helps one recognise life prior to that moment as futile running on a treadmill. I started writing my experiences from March 2018, so that other people interested in spiritual journey could get benefit from my experiences as well as gain confidence that it happens and happening even today! So their efforts are not going to be in vain for sure- this confidence is a must to progress in this journey into the discovery of the unknown within. My Linktree https://linktr.ee/Joshuto to access me on social media sites. Osho pioneered concept of new-man and neo-sannyas. आंख के सामने पूर्ण प्रकट हो जाता। हाथ की सीमा है, आंख की सीमा नहीं है। कान की सीमा है, आंख की सीमा नहीं है। आंख असीम को भी आत्मसात कर लेती है, इसलिए हमने जाननेवालों को आंखवाला कहा, द्रष्टा कहा। और जानने की कला को दर्शन (Philosia) कहा। और जानने की विधि को अंतर्दृष्टि कहा। ये सब शब्द आंख से बने हैं। और ऐसा नहीं है कि भारत में ही ऐसा है; दुनिया में जितने भी शब्द बनाए गए हैं जाननेवाले के लिए वे सब आंख से बने हैं। जैसे अंग्रेजी में जाननेवाले को कहते हैं–सीअर, द्रष्टा। श्रोता नहीं कहते हैं। कान से नहीं बनाया शब्द। श्रोता नहीं कह सकते। कान की सीमा है। आंख में सारी इंद्रियां समाहित हैं। Formation of a Pearl is very similar to process of enlightenment of a person. Osho’s awareness meditation made all the difference in my life like a bivalve do for a drop of water. हंसा तो मोती चुगे।
