In my personal opinion, Ramayan and Mahabharat are epic stories crafted in such a way that they will help a person in all his previous life till his last life as an enlightened person.
There is an incident in it when Hanuman discovered his powers after reminded of them by Jamwant.
He was given task of getting clue about well being of Sita, and deliver a message from Ram.
On the way to Lanka, while flying over the ocean Sursa caught Hanuman through his shadow.
Then Hanuman used his wisdom and entered her stomach and came out safely too. After looking at Hanuman in front of him alive, Sursa blessed his victory on the path he is traveling.
This is a metaphor- the Mother Nature or Maya or Shakti and here Sursa Loves us to get freed from herself!
Strange but it is true as I have experienced it. We are born out of the unfulfilled desires of our last birth. In this metaphor these desires are represented as the shadow of the person who died without fulfilling them. Mother Nature, like Sursa, caught our desires to give us birth as a human being. The bigger our desires become, the bigger the Sursa expands itself to get it fulfilled and remain unfulfilled too. We are like Hanuman in this metaphor and become fine enough to take birth in the womb of a female to enter this Maya or the mouth of Sursa or Mother Nature.
This way we entered into the mouth of Maya. In all our life females play an important role from giving birth, taking care of neonatal, and raising. Then as friend, wife and in many ways all through the life a person, and is taken care of by females ie Mother Nature’s human form. All materials we use and the food we eat are also provided to us by Mother Nature till the end of life.
But in case a person gets enlightened by his own persistent effort then too, one day Mother Nature let him come out of the stomach of Sursa ie Maya. This happens only when the person being taken care of Mother Nature remains true to his heart and pass each and every test taken by Shakti or Maya.
To pass in Maya’s tests Osho’s message is to enjoy life including its desires being fully aware. It means if you are enjoying desires then you must be fully aware during that experience. And to remain fully aware for most of the time, I divided the activity into small parts. Like eating a pastry: I enjoy its look, then remain aware lifting the knife, then cutting it and placing it in my mouth. Then get fully immersed in its taste at every part of the mouth. This way you remain separated from the body.
काजल ही की कोठरी, और काजल ही का कोट।
साबुत Joshuto निकल गया, ओशो की awareness ली ओढ़॥
The world belongs to Sursa(Maya) and the body too belongs to it. Following or practicing Osho’s mantra of awareness that I practiced in everyday life. It acted like a piece of cloth covering me, due to which Joshuto came out of it clean.
Only 100/100 is min passing mark in her exam! If a person passes then she herself lets him free from her Mayajaal. No one ever came out from it due to his own effort. It needs her own blessings to come out too.
But when Hanuman came out, she blessed him all success in the work for which he is going.
I take it like this: With her blessings only he could come out, and anyone who is blessed to be freed by Maya herself then no one can stop him from succeeding in any venture afterward.
The epics are like a road constructed in tough terrain so that whether a person is living a material life or spiritual life, he can get hints about the right approach to pass the terrain without much difficulty.
This is why Osho gave more priority to female sannyasins. He has observed that religious spiritual people are too harsh about females due to the path of celibacy. When one cannot get freed from Maya without her blessings, then going against her is going to create more trouble.
