This is the case with poor people in every religion except Hindu. The book outweighs the money or land earned with hard work. This is the reason God created these religions which encourages reading from books.
But the real objective of God behind giving book in your hand is that it increases your speed towards your destiny or salvation or enlightenment.
Instead of cursing just look at the opportunity in the hands. Who is stopping you?
If you could read just 300 books by Osho in English, and apply the experiments he suggested you will find that you got more and lost little by loosing land. His books ate having essence of 150,000 books he read as well as his own experiences too.
Before 5000 years from now, Indian Mystics discovered that reading helps in salvation. They wrote Upanishads, to convey their message to the people. When people read them their speed of grasping the subtle things present in them increased. This caused worry to a section of society Brahmins mainly, Baniya (Businessman-Marwari and Agrawal ), Kayastha (Gupta etc) and Kshtriya (the Kings) they barred people from reading books and stopped teaching Sanskrit to them -in which it was written by Mystics in those times. Instead they forced them to keep the land. As this will keep them away from knowledge about truth forever. Sanskrit is a poetic language, so many meanings comes out from same word and only an enlightened person can get its essence, otherwise people could modify them to get benefit out of it.
But the truth works in a miraculous way, it has eternity in store to prevail over these peoples. It is still quite smaller an amount for truth than spending just $2.5K more by Jeff Bezos or Warren Buffett to get their choice of item for their use or simply by paying ₹2,500/- by Mukesh Ambani to get a job done as per their will. So 2,500 years before came the Buddha. He started preaching in local dialect! Hindu Brahmins thought educating these people ie ‘Giving books in replacement of land’-in this case, is going to harm their ‘so called Hindu religion’ which was not at all in shape to let truth survive through it!
He was thrown out of India, so as to save the Hindu religion?
Even God or Truth or Love or Beauty is fed up with these peoples 2000 years before!
युग बीते पर सत्य न बीता।
सब हारे पर सत्य न हारा॥
So the truth took birth through Jesus and Mohammed in an altogether new region to remain for eternity. These religion brought equality among all people, reading and scientific experiments are made available to the masses.
These regions are still not open towards a natural tendency of nature to create new every day-through sex or biological process in nature. Fruits we eat and we are it’s outcome too, including us.
Then truth mutated as Osho to let people of all religion accept it as a natural thing. His most of the disciples are from west. For them he suggested ‘Awareness Meditation’ as the key because Zen process -through which Buddhism survived-is very long and arduous. Osho said that when Buddha came to know the truth after making all out efforts, and finding them as futile, in that relaxed state of mind he got enlightened. If we are living a life where it is already tough to manage things together then for spiritual progress there is no need to follow another tough path. You have learned lesson there itself, so why not to start from reaching the relaxed state through awareness meditation? There is no need to invent the wheel again, just use it.
So not only Corona mutates, over time Truth too mutates to lead more and more people to salvation or enlightenment.
So ancient wisdom is fine, but new too needs to be incorporated. Whatever exists is just the form taken by the formless for a grand drama in this existence. We all are puppets in his hands but the thread joining us to him, could lead us to reach to him too. Upon reaching only you could recognise that you are actually the Truth, and the puppet is just your role.
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 that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
Osho International Foundation, Pune, India provides facility to learn these Sitting at your home, 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.
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.
