Deva means divine, anupa means unique. And each individual is unique; they are not a repetition of anybody else. And one should not ever imitate. Learn but never imitate. Learn from the whole existence, but never try to become a carbon copy. That is the only way to reach to god. Only when you are yourself can you reach. If you are somebody else, then it is impossible to make contact with the divine. Only an authentic person can have the contact.

And authenticity means: one should insist on remaining oneself.

[Osho gives sannyas to a small child and speaks to the mother.]

Deva means god, rupo means the form - in the form of god. Each child comes fresh in the form of god. Children have to be respected immensely; they have to be loved. Don't give your knowledge to them and don't try to give them a fixed pattern. Give them love and freedom.

Anand means bliss, surendra means a god. Existence revolves around the centre of bliss. We remain on the periphery, hence the misery. The farther away we are from the centre of existence, the more miserable we are. And the distance is created by thought; thought is the distance between the center and the periphery. The moment thought disappears, the periphery disappears Suddenly you are at the center, you are the centre, and in that moment all is bliss.

Whenever we touch the centre, even by accident, there is bliss. Misery is basically a shadow of thought: the more you think, the more miserable you are; the Less you think, the more joyful. And if one can drop thinking altogether then all misery disappears of its own accord. It cannot exist without the mind. And the mind is nothing but the process of thought - it is not a faculty, just the process of thought, just like clouds passing. Clouds can be so thick that you cannot see the sun, although the

sun always remains there. Thoughts can be too thick, dense clouds, and you cannot see any bliss in life, although the bliss is always there.

Whenever there is a little thinness in your thinking, whenever feeling takes possession of you and thinking becomes secondary, you become more blissful; but, feeling also is a subtle thought. In the ultimate state there is neither thinking nor feeling; both disappear. These are the three states - from the mind to the heart and from the heart to no-mind and no-heart. Man is in the world of thinking, and man needs to be in the world of no-thought, and between the two is the world of feeling.

Slowly slowly move from thinking to feeling. Feeling is just midway: It is not exactly thought and not yet no-thought. It is a vague thought, has a very thin layer, very subtle. You cannot be articulate about it but you feel it and you can translate it into thought if you try. It can become thought any moment, it has the seed. But the first step is from thinking to feeling and the second step is into nothingness.

These two steps are the whole journey. From the periphery, from the circumference, you suddenly find yourself at the centre, as the centre. Hence in the East we have always called bliss the ultimate god. Bliss is our name for god.

[Osho explains the meaning of deva punito - divine purity or simplicity.]

Divine purity reduced to practical life means spontaneity. The spontaneous person is innocent.

He has a quality that only children have, and that is the meaning of purity, innocence. He has the quality that animals have and the trees have and which man has lost.

To be spontaneous means not to act out of the past, because out of the past is all cunningness, cleverness, calculation, arithmetic. When you act in the moment and it has no reference to your past, the action has a beauty, a purity - the same as a small child's act. Whether he laughs or cries or goes into a tantrum or becomes angry, all his acts have purity - it is uncalculated. His anger is hot and not cold. The calculated anger is cold. His anger is natural, a responsiveness. He has not brooded over it, he has not planned it. He is just in the hands of nature - hence the beauty. He is surrendered to his nature; he is not trying to control his life. And that's what Jesus means when he says 'Unless you are like small children, you will not enter into my kingdom of god.' And the more experienced we become, the farther away we are from the kingdom of god. Those who know are far away - the ignorant are very close.

So act in the moment, live in the present, slowly slowly don't allow the past to interfere And you will be surprised that life is such an eternal wonder, such a mysterious phenomenon and such a great gift that one simply feels constantly in gratitude. So this is my message for you: live in the moment, herenow. That's why I call it divine purity; the human purity is just the opposite of it.

And remember: impurity is not the real opposite of divine purity; but human purity is the real opposite of divine purity. And by human purity I mean people who are evil but who are trying to be pure by calculation - the so-called saints who are trying to be pure so that they can have the kingdom of god. But that is a bargain. How can it be pure? It is businesslike - how can it be pure? They are simply waiting to be rewarded; they are not pure people. If some day they come to know that there

no reward, they will drop all their purity. They don't have any joy in it - they think of it as a sacrifice, as if they are obliging god by being pure They are doing it, they are the doers of it. It is not simple, it is not innocent. It is planned and a very long-range plan, even for after death. They are trying to control not only life but death too... and after death too.

So the so-called saints are never pure, they cannot be; they don't know what purity is. Their character is just a hypocrisy, cultivated from the outside. And because there is a motivation in it, it is impure. Motivation is the poison that makes everything impure. Only the acts which are without any motivation are pure acts, and a pure act is a liberating phenomenon - it is a moment of truth.

That's why I call it deva punito, divine purity - not something cultivated by the human mind but something received as a gift.

Just live moment to moment and the gift will start arriving, something from the beyond will start descending in you, and the joy of it is infinite. That and only that gives meaning to life, nothing else.

Life is a garden of love, and the moment we forget it, we go astray. The moment we forget love, we fall from grace. That's the original sin. If one can remain loving, and if loving becomes one's very quality, then there is no need for any other religion. Love is enough unto itself, because prayer grows out of it of its own accord. And one day god arrives - one need not go in search of him. He himself comes seeking the heart that loves.

[A sannyasin asks: I would like to know whether it's better for me to watch negative feelings or to express them, because I feel that when I watch them I manipulate them or suppress them.]

You have to express them. Watching will be repression. Right now watching won't help; only in a later phase. First you have to express them. So whenever you feel that something is accumulating inside, go to the river, or into your room, close the door, beat the pillows, shout - but express it.

Right now just watching won't help; it will harm.

And the more you express, the more you will be surprised that a different kind of watching arises. You will catch yourself red-handed sometimes in tremendous anger. You will see that you are watching - expressing and watching Not that you have to do it - it will come of its own accord. One day beating the pillow in great rage, suddenly you will find that you are watching too. But not that you have been trying to watch - the watcher has come on its own, and when the watcher comes by itself, it has a tremendous beauty. Then it never represses.

A forced watching is always repressive, and you are carrying something in you that has to be catharted first....

Encounter [group] has to be done, mm?... But this has to be absolutely clear in your mind, that watching will come; first go into expression. And there is no need to express on people, because that creates unnecessary troubles. They react, you react, then it becomes a vicious circle and there is no end to it.

Whenever you feel something is there, hovering, go to the river and just throw it out completely. For at least one month cathart, and after one month remind me again.

[A sannyasin says she feels she has been helping many people in the West to come to Osho.

However she has stopped painting which she used to do.]

It will come, but wait - don t start yet. First help people and be completely drowned in me and my work, and one day suddenly painting will be back, and with a new vigour and with a new vision...

and it will be something that you have never done before; it will not be your doing then.

In Zen they say: First one has to learn painting, then one has to forget how to paint, and then after years one day, it starts coming through again. When you have completely forgotten the technique - you don't know how to paint at all, you have no conscious idea - it explodes in your consciousness.

Then you paint like a child. Then the painting is not yours; it is divine. It may be painting, it may be poetry, it may be music, it may be anything There is one kind of creativity that is managed by you, manipulated by you, and there is another kind of creativity in which you are just a vehicle, a passage.

Good, that you have started. Meditate, help people, and it will come one day. And when it comes you will be surprised that this is so new, this has nothing to do with your past. It will use all that you know about painting - your whole past will contribute to it - but it will not be just the sum total of it.

It will be something plus, and that plus is valuable.

[A sannyasin, leaving for the West, says he feels as if he is going into the water. Osho checks his energy.]

But the intensity is not as much as it should be - it is very lukewarm, so you feel half-half, divided.

Something wants to happen, but energy is not available. So it goes to a point and then disappears; you go to a certain point and then all simply disappears, and you feel like falling back....

Nothing to be worried about. Just a little more intensity has to be created....

Do two things there back home. One thing is: every night stand in the middle of the room and just do latihan.... That's one thing in the night before you go to bed - just twenty minutes latihan will create great energy. Then go to sleep.

And in the morning when you get up, the first thing to do is gibberish, for twenty minutes. So that will keep your energy at a very high pitch the whole day. For two months these two things: in the night, latihan, and in the morning, gibberish - twenty minutes each. Then when you come back, the first thing to remind me about is this. Then we will create... just a little more energy is needed.

You reach a point and then-the energy is not available and then you start slipping back - then you start feeling guilty.... I understand. Now I can see exactly what it is, mm? But it will disappear - nothing to be worried about.

Kiev, 1113.

Grand Prince of Kiev summoned a council of princes,
and made it a law:

"Now, of all the Russian lands, to expel all the Zhids,
and with all their possessions and from now on,
not to allow them into our lands,
and if they enter secretly,
to freely rob and kill them...

From now on, there are not to be Zhids in Russia.

That law has not been repealed yet.

Ivan the Terrible, in 1550:

"It is forbidden to the Zhids to travel to Russia for trade,
as from them many evils are done,
that boiled potion (alcohol) is brought in by them,
and Christians are turned away from the faith by them."

Peter The First, 1702:

"I want to ...
see on my lands the best people of Mohammedan or pagan faith,
rather than Zhids.
They are cheats and liars.
I root out the evil, and not seed it.

Decree of the Empress Catherine on April 26, 1727:

"Zhids, of both, male and female sex ...
all to be sent out of Russia abroad immediately
and from now on, they are not to be allowed in to Russia under any pretext".

Noone has cancelled that decree to this day.

Russian writer Alexander Kuprin:

"All of us, the people of Russia,
have long been run under the whip of Jewish din,
Jewish hysteria,...this people ...
like a flock of flies, small as they are,
are able to kill even a horse in a swamp.

Emperor Nicholas I:

"They - ordinary leeches,
that suck out and completely drain the entire regions.

F. Dostoyevsky:

"The Zhids will ruin Russia ...
Zhid and his rotten herd - is a conspiracy against the Russians."


"The Zhids - the most skilled thieves of our century.
They are the filth of the human society ...
they are the real flocks of crows ...
like caterpillars or grasshoppers they devour France."

George Washington, the father of the American Revolution,
the first president of America:

"The Jews are a plague of society,
the greatest enemies of society, the presence of which,
unfortunately, is happily supported in America."

Prophet Mohammed, 6 - 7 century:

"It is inconceivable to me, as until now no one drove these beasts out,
whose breath is like death.
Does not every man destroy the wild beasts, devouring people,
even if they have a human face?".

Islam has saved the Arabs from Judaism. They expelled the Jews, and today,
there is no making the aloholics, no promotion of violence, corruption,
defilement, there is no destruction of morality and culture.
And that is why Jews hate Arabs so much.

Mark Cicero, famous Roman orator, 2 century BC:

"The Jews belong to a dark and repulsive force."

King Franks Guthrie, 6 AD:

"Cursed be this evil and perfidious Jewish nation,
which lives only by deception.

Giordano Bruno, 16 century, Italian scientist:

"The Jews are a leper, leprous and dangerous race,
which deserves to be eradicated since its inception.

Pope Clement the Eighth:

"The whole world is suffering from the Jews ...
They threw a lot of unfortunate people into the state of poverty,
especially the peasants, workers and the poor."

The writer and philosopher Jean-Francois Voltaire, 17th - 18th century:

"Judaism is cave cult, an obstacle to progress.

Old Testament (Torah) is a collection of cannibalism,
stupidity and obscurantism ...

Jews are nothing more than a despised and barbarous people..."

Composer and conductor Richard Wagner:
"The Jews - dishonest, hostile to society, national culture and the progress beings
The only salvation from an evil futility is
in the final suppression of Jewry,
in its complete destruction and disappearance."

Benjamin Franklin, American scientist and statesman, 18 century:

"If we, by the Constitution do not exclude Jews from the United States,
in less than 200 years they ...
will swallow the country ...
your children will curse you in your graves."

This prophecy was fulfilled. Later in his Epistle, I shalt talk about it.
And you, Ivan the Hundred Million, turn your attention to the phrase
"by the Constitution", ie it is not necessary to immeditely start beating,
and then burying.

The famous Hungarian composer Liszt, 19 century:

"There will come a time when all Christian nations,
where Jews reside,
will ask a question to either tolerate them further or deport them
This is as important as the question of whether we want life or death,
health or illness ..."

As the apotheosis of the idea, I will cite the great religious reformer
Martin Luther, who studied the books of the Talmud in the original
language. He denounced the Zhids as seducers, pathological villains,
parasiting on the white race. His program of the Jewish question:

1. Synagogues are to be destroyed.
2. Talmud, Torah and other scriptures of Judaism are to be burned.
3. Making the Jews earn their bread by honest means.
4. Confiscate from Jews all they have robbed.
5. Judaism is to be outlawed.
