Deva means divine, Arpana means surrender ­ divine surrender. There is a surrender which one can manage; that is a human surrender. It is surrender only for the name's sake because the door remains the human mind and anything that is done by the human mind cannot be surrender. Deeply hidden behind, the controller is still existing and if at any moment the mind decides it wants to, the surrender will disappear, it can be taken back. And a surrender that can be taken back is not worth much. A surrender is surrender only when there is no way of---OSHO NAMAN

[A mother and nine-year-old daughter are present. She tells Osho she has done a Woman's Lib type group in the West.] I will take you out of your womanhood and manhood both! One has to go beyond both because both are imprisonment. One should not be so attached to the biology. One should start freeing oneself from biology, then from psychology and then ultimately even from spirituality. That's the goal of Buddha. Then nothingness arises ­ when you are freed from all identities, when you are neither body nor mind nor soul. The ordinary person---OSHO NAMAN

Ramen. It is a name of God. Remember it: respect yourself, love yourself, worship yourself because deep inside God is residing. We are temples of God. Only the forms are different, the shapes and sizes of the temples are different, but the deity that resides inside is the same. There is only one God. That God is neither Hindu nor Mohammedan nor Christian. That God belongs to nobody in particular, it belongs to all. It belongs to those who have love in their hearts. Only lovers can search for the divine. Start loving by loving yourself ­ that---OSHO NAMAN

[Osho explains the meaning of subiro: the courageous one. The inner journey needs great courage, first because you are alone there, you cannot take anybody with you. Secondly, the deeper you go inside, the more you start disappearing; it is a kind of death.] Devaraj means: the divine king. And I declare you, this moment, a divine king as everybody else is too... because only God exists. So even a rock has divinity, sovereignty; it is utterly precious. So whosoever is alive, whosoever is, is divine, and that confers sovereignty, that makes---OSHO NAMAN

[Osho explains the meaning of Swami Samma: one who comes to effortlessness through effort, one who comes to surrender through will.] First you will have to go deep in effort, you will have to do all that can be done, all that is humanly possible. Only when you have done all that is humanly possible will you be able to drop it. God always happens as a gift. But there are two types of people in the world: the will-oriented, effortoriented, active; and the other is passive, surrender-oriented, feminine. You are the male type. You cannot---OSHO NAMAN

[A sannyasin says his wife, who was a sannyasin, is with a master they knew before, and he feels to join her. He has many doubts which he wants to expose... ] Nothing to be worried about. It is always good to be exposed to doubts. It strengthens you, it becomes a challenge. And if you trust because you are not exposed to doubts, that trust is not of much value. Trust has to exist amidst doubts, in doubts. Trust has to be an island in the ocean of doubts; then it has beauty, life, strength. Never be afraid of exposure. Doubt is not against---OSHO NAMAN

[A sannyasin, who is leaving, asks if Osho has anything to say to him. Osho asks him which meditation he likes best. He replies: Kundalini. Osho checks his energy.] Kundalini can still go very deep but you have not allowed it as totally as possible. You are enjoying it but you have not been allowing it totally. You are a little afraid and you are holding inside. You go only so far, you go into it cautiously. You have not gone into it madly yet, and that makes a lot of difference. You can go into a meditation cautiously, you can go up to---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 20

20 April 1978 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Veet means beyond, Vivarta means argument. Truth is beyond argument. It cannot be proved, it cannot be disproved either. All argumentation about truth is utterly futile. Hence philosophy goes on missing the point. That's the difference between philosophy and religion: philosophy argues, religion experiences. Through argument you go about and about, round and round in circles, but you never penetrate the core of the problem. You do much speculation but it is all verbal, chattering of the mind. You can be very convinced by your own chattering---OSHO NAMAN

Samarpano. It means absolute surrender, utter let-go. The mind is always in conflict with something or other; it needs conflict to exist. It can exist only in conflict and through conflict. It is a constant war, it is violence. It either fights with others or it starts fighting with itself, but one thing is certain about it, that it cannot exist without fight. It is its very breath. The moment you stop fighting the mind starts disappearing on its own accord, and the disappearance of the mind is the appearance of God. The disappearance of the---OSHO NAMAN

CHAPTER 19

19 April 1978 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

Prem means love, Narayana means God ­ love is God. And all else is just pseudo. All that goes on in the name of religion is just counterfeit... except love. Love is the real phenomenon that transforms. All else is just ritual. The ritual pacifies, consoles, but does not transmute. People need it, it is a kind of tranquilliser. Going through the same ritual, they remain occupied with it. That's what the ordinary religion is. Society drives you crazy and the religion somehow keeps you as you are, adjusted. The so-called religion is in the---OSHO NAMAN
