The following notes were taken from the series of discourses:
THE DIAMOND SUTRA
This is an excellent series.
#1: Buddha does not care what you can understand. The only cares what the truth
is and he does not compromise himself. Humans have to be led to the level of truth
truth cannot be led to humans. Buddha taught a spirituality that is not
a repressive without ideology. Buddha leaves only nothingness behind.
Buddha does not teach other worldliness.
Heaven and hell are creations of the mind -- this world is projected onto the future. Alone = all one. In aloneness you become one with the all and you are not lonely. Focusing your attention in front means to watch the breath. Buddhists call it right mindfulness. Bodhisattva means one who is ready to become a buddha but who tries to remain unenlightened so that he can help others to become enlightened. Because the Bodhisattva is unenlightened he still knows what it is like to be unenlightened and therefore he is able to relate to the ordinary person whereas once enlightenment has occurred the buddha has to relate from memory. The Catholic term recollectedness means the same as the Buddhist term right mindfulness. Tathagata is a Buddhist word for one who is enlightened.
#2: The no-mind does not arise out of the mind. It is discontinuous. The mind has to be removed for the no-mind to present itself. The mind is an obstacle to the no-mind. No-mind means that which is not mind. Buddha says: no self, no super mind, no soul and no mind. The economy relies upon sexual repression. Because people are not allowed to love they search for money.
#3: Bodhisattva. Giving and receiving. Buddha possibly referring to Osho and his sannyasins. The root of obedience means a thorough listening. In the Jewish tradition it means to bare your ear. Absurd is the opposite of obedience. Absurdas in Latin means absolutely deaf. The wheel of Dharma has stopped after 2500 years and needs to be started again.
#4: One has to start from state of not knowing, otherwise there is a reacting out of the past. You are not the content of your memories you are the consciousness. This is how you can forget things. You are not the memory. Memory is just a record. When you are trying to remember a name who is the one who is trying to remember? Your memory is not you. You are consciousness. Memory is content. Memory is the whole life energy of the ego. Memory is afraid of the new. To become new one needs to disidentify with the ego. The ego is just a mechanism. The ego is afraid of death because the ego is arbitrary. Life is being. To die in the ego is to be born into being into God. The new is a message from God. In spite of your fear go with the new. One needs to be passionate and intense about their meditation. Passion evolves into compassion.
Definition of Arahat and Bodhisattva. (I am not clear about this so you had better check it for yourself. I am not clear what Osho means by the other shore. Is he talking about enlightenment or death?) Two types of enlightenment. Arahat and Bodhisattva. I think some people pertain directly to enlightenment. These are known as Arahat but they do not have the tools to be able to help others to attain to enlightenment. While those who spent some time as a Bodhisattva once they attain to enlightenment they are able to help others. Down the ages people have always thought that their time/era is special. This is just ego.
#5: Excellent. When anything that happens is okay and all is a benediction then one has had a taste of enlightenment. The Buddha eye is another name for the third eye. Two eyes give us duality, the third eye allows us to see the unity of existence. Jesus says that if your eyes would be like one then your whole being will be full of light. Make the outer and inner one. Make the duality one. Love and hate are one, day and night are one, life and death are one, bliss and misery are one, and so on.
The eight barriers to wisdom. A meditator who crosses all of these barriers attains to the status of Bodhisattvahood. 1. No perception of self. No ego. No being: each moment we change, life is a process. No soul: no supra force abiding inside of you. No person: the personality dies with the body. 2. No perception of remaining the same. Being. Each moment we are different. 3. No perception of soul or a supreme personality. 4. No idea of a personality that migrates from body to body. 5. Dharma. Neither the positive element nor the negative element remains. 6. No perception of no-dharma. 7. No perception. 8. No non-perception. If you come across anything on the inside then you are still outside of your self. The seer only exists with the seen. The observer is the observed. When content disappears the container disappears. On Gopi Krishna and blocked kundalini energy. The purpose of meditation is to help us to drop everything. Once we attain to this emptiness/nothingness then we need to drop the emptiness.
#6: Buddhism is the only tradition in which it is rare for a Bodhisattva to go mad. It is quite common for a Bodhisattva to go mad in Sufism and Hinduism. The bliss can be just too much. In Christianity ordinary people are worshipped as saints while those who attain to enlightenment go mad and put in asylums. Hence meditators need preparation and training for enlightenment.
On meat eating and vegetarianism. Some vegetarians may be repressed meat eaters. Oshos objection to meat eating is based solely on the grounds of aesthetics.
#7: Being and non being, nothingness. Attention gives one the sense of being loved. Love brings attention but attention does not bring love. St Francis of Assisi died singing.
#8: Up until now the West has been extroverted, objective and scientific produced great scientists. The East has been introverted, subjective and meditative produced great mystics. Jesus says, The Kingdom of God is within you! But Christians tend to focus on heaven as if it is outside of themselves.
About the subtle desires we get for a little reward at the end of the day in the form of a beer, wine, cigarette, chocolate, drug, etc. The mechanism is something like: If I get this then I can be happy. A cause and effect belief. We set conditions on happiness. What conditions need to be met in order to fulfil a value or emotional state? When I get x then I will have or feel y. But once you attain the goal the condition is removed. When the goal is achieved there is a relaxation but the desire arises again for something new. The bigger the goal, the more effort that goes into attaining it, the more value we attach to it, the greater the tension in the mind and body, but once we attain it the feeling of success is short lived and there is still something missing. Happiness needs no conditions, it is natural. Set very small conditions on fulfilling your values.
#9: A Master such as Buddha makes you aware of your potential. Have courage to face life and to accept the challenges that life offers you.
#10: Words are used to describe an experience. The word is not the thing. A word has a different meaning for each person and for each context. Alone = all one. Differences between aloneness and loneliness. The distinctions of aloneness. Religion to know less and less about more and more. When overwhelmed introverts cry and extroverts laugh. Transformation occurs when you reach the extreme. Laughter turns to tears or the tears turn to laughter. Meditation introversion. Love laughter.
#11: Just watch things as they are without interfering, making an opinion or judging. For example if you have a headache make a note of it but don't try and change it either way. Try and follow the energy back to the root cause. For example: headache anger ego nothingness. The Buddhists call the silence suchness. Don't be concerned with the past, just take note when you become conscious of something then follow the energy back to the root cause. This may be achieved with a regression technique, following a strategy backwards, dropping through gestalts or following the core outcome chain. On choicelessness. Buddha uses the metaphor of an oil lamp for the mind. Oil is the desire that fuels the lamp. Dont try and stop your thoughts directly, dont fight with the problem but go for the root cause of the thinking the desire the energy that fuels the mind. Buddha says the mind is like a lightening flash it is momentary, dont cling to it. The word is not the thing. Dont be too concerned with words, they are just containers, throw them away.
