Osho meditation the true name with Nanak Omkar Guru vishnu sahastranam mulla nasruddin akshara satnam guru buddha Ch8Pt3

Ch8Pt3 Osho Meditation True Name Nanak Omkar Guru Vishnu Sahastranam Mulla Nasruddin Akshara Satnam Guru Buddha

THERE ARE COUNTLESS WAYS TO REPEAT HIS NAME AND EXPRESS DEVOTION,

COUNTLESS WAYS OF WORSHIP AND PURIFICATION.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS SCRIPTURES AND COUNTLESS MOUTHS TO RECITE THEM,

COUNTLESS WAYS OF YOGA TO MAKE THE MIND DISPASSIONATE.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS DEVOTEES WHO CONTEMPLATE HIS VIRTUES

AND KNOWLEDGE,

COUNTLESS WHO ARE VIRTUOUS AND GENEROUS.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS BRAVE MEN WHO RISK THEIR LIVES FOR HIM,

COUNTLESS WHO VOW TO SILENCE AND MEDITATE ON HIM.

NANAK SAYS, HOW SHALL I PRAISE HIM?

HOWEVER MUCH I OFFER MYSELF COULD NEVER BE ENOUGH!

WHATEVER PLEASES YOU, O LORD, IS BEST FOR ME.

YOU ARE THE FORMLESS, THE ALMIGHTY -- YOU WHO ABIDE FOREVER!

On the one hand is the congregation of saints and philosophers who have with great deliberation devised untold methods for finding truth; but unfortunately, just because of the countless methods, truth was lost.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS IGNORANT FOOLS AND COUNTLESS WHO ARE BLIND,

COUNTLESS THIEVES AND SHIRKERS.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS NUMBERS WHO RULED BY FORCE BEFORE THEY DEPARTED,

COUNTLESS MURDERERS WHO EARN ONLY BY MURDER.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS SINNERS WHO COMMIT NOTHING BUT SIN,

COUNTLESS LIARS WHO LIVE BY THEIR LIES.

THERE ARE COUNTLESS BARBARIANS EATING ONLY FILTH FOR FOOD,

COUNTLESS FAULT-FINDERS WHO FILL THEIR HEADS WITH SCANDAL.

THUS NANAK PONDERS ON THE WICKED AND THE LOW.

HOWEVER MUCH I OFFER MYSELF COULD NEVER BE ENOUGH!

WHATEVER PLEASES YOU, O LORD, IS BEST FOR ME.

YOU ARE THE FORMLESS, THE ALMIGHTY -- YOU WHO ABIDE FOREVER!

On the other hand, there is the crowd of the wicked, the sinners, the murderers and the lustful. They too, with all the skill of their egos, have found countless paths to circumvent truth. They are creative innovators of lies. They are great discoverers who have uncovered delightful untruths, created beautiful tantalizing dreams. Anybody can be caught by their hypnosis and led astray.

One can go astray either by choosing a wrong path or by remaining undecided about which right path to follow; in both cases you will fall into error. Says Nanak: I care for neither. Whatever You choose is best for me. I care not what the virtuous say, I care not what the sinners say. I choose neither sin nor virtue, neither the right path nor the wrong. I choose nothing; I leave all to You. Whatever You make me do is auspicious. Wherever You take me is favorable for me. Whichever path You indicate is the path for me. It matters not whether the goal is reached or not reached.

Understand this: if the desire for attainment lurks within, you will not be able to leave everything to Him. Then all your attention will remain on the goal and you will always be anxious about your progress. Your surrender will be incomplete and half-hearted, which is worse than no surrender at all.

No! There is no question of either reaching or not reaching the destination, because there is no longer any destination. To abandon all thought of destination is the destination itself. Surrender is the ultimate quality for the devotee. Nothing remains after this. Then if He makes the devotee sink to the lowest depths, the seeker feels himself raised higher and higher. If He throws him in the darkest pit, the devotee feels the sun rising from a thousand directions. The question is not where you are going, nor what you are attaining, but what is your innermost feeling?

Nanak's method is totally a method of surrender.

COUNTLESS ARE THE NAMES AND THE PLACES WHERE YOU DWELL,

COUNTLESS WORLDS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN REACHED.

TO SAY COUNTLESS IS TO BURDEN THE MIND.

THROUGH THE LETTER COMES THE NAME, AND ALL THE PRAYERS.

THROUGH THE LETTER IS ALL KNOWLEDGE AND SONGS IN HIS PRAISE.

THROUGH THE LETTER IS ALL WRITING AND SPEAKING,

THROUGH THE LETTER ARE ALL EVENTS DESTINED.

ALL DESTINY HAS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN,

BUT HE WHO WRITES IS BEYOND DESTINY.

ALL CREATION IS HIS NAME;

THERE IS NO PLACE THAT IS NOT HIS NAME.

NANAK SAYS, HOW SHALL I PRAISE HIM?

HOWEVER MUCH I OFFER MYSELF COULD NEVER BE ENOUGH!

WHATEVER PLEASES YOU, O LORD, IS BEST FOR ME.

YOU ARE THE FORMLESS, THE ALMIGHTY -- YOU WHO ABIDE FOREVER!

His name! There have been almost as many discovered as there are people in the world. Each makes his choice. There is a Hindu scripture, Vishnu Sahastranam, which is nothing but the names of God. Mohammedans have their own names. It is both a Hindu and Mohammedan tradition to name their children after some name of God: we find Rehman, Rahim, Abdulla, which are all Islamic names of God, and Ram, Krishna, Hari, which are Hindu names of God.

If we were to consider all the various names, we would find them to be as varied as there are people in the world. And yet there is a way out: no matter how many names we coin, they are all the product of the human mind. He is without name. Therefore, whatever name we give Him, that will do.

So Nanak says: Which name of Yours shall I repeat? Which name shall I call you by? Which name should I take that will reach You. The seeker is always worried about which name would be best. It is common knowledge that when we write a letter you have to write the address and so we pay the utmost attention to the name and address.

It happened once that Mulla Nasruddin was working for a man who had a weakness for writing anonymous letters. He sent them to ministers, newspaper editors, and also to the intellectuals of the town. One day he wrote a letter and gave it to Nasruddin, who promptly went and posted it.

"Where is the letter? Have you posted it?" he asked Nasruddin.

"Yes", said Nasruddin.

"But I hadn't yet addressed the envelope. Couldn't you see that?"

"I did notice it," said the Mulla, "but I thought this time you wanted to keep the address anonymous as well."

If you keep the address secret how can the letter be delivered? How will you address a letter so that it reaches Him? Thus His name is essential. There is a constant search for a name befitting Him, which would evoke a response from Him. Says Nanak: Either all names are His or no name is His. The akshara, the letter, is His name. Akshara means the letter and also that which cannot be erased. A, B, C, D can be rubbed out after they are written. And the reason for calling the letters akshara is very meaningful. It implies that which is meaningful, that which is authentic and inexpressible; what is written is only the reflection thereof.

It is like this: there is the moon in the sky, and there is a lake below in which the moon is reflected. Disturb the water and the reflected moon breaks in a thousand pieces, because it is perishable. But no matter how much you try to stir things up, it has no effect on the moon, which is indestructible. Our language is only an echo of the language of God. Whatever we write in books and on boards is mere reflection which can be erased at any moment. But the source from which the words come is beyond extinction. You who are speaking are destructible, but that which speaks through you is beyond extinction.

So Nanak says akshara is His name, and the letter can be neither written nor erased. Other than akshara, all is man's creation. What is this akshara, this letter, the word?

We do have a very close echo of akshara in Omkar. The whole philosophical system of Nanak is based on this one focal point, ek omkar satnam -- that is all. Know these three words and you will know the whole japuji; you will then understand Nanak in his fullness, because that is the essence of his verse. Akshara, according to Nanak, is Omkar -- there is one resonance that vibrates even without being expressed or written. And this resonance is beyond annihilation, it is the very music of existence; therefore there is no way of destroying it. When everything else is destroyed, it will still go on.

It is said in the Bible, what is invariably repeated in all scriptures: IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD. What is referred to as the word, the logos in the West, is Omkar. In the beginning was the word; all the rest followed later, and when all else is no more the word will still resonate; everything will be absorbed in it.

India has developed various methods of shabd yoga, the yoga of the word. The practice consists only of the word. Its significance is to make oneself wordless so that the speaker is silenced, and then what is heard is the voice of God. This is what the yoga claims.
