OSHO: Marriage and Children

Marriage and Children are important questions for many people in relationships. Osho brings a new dimension to this – individuality and awareness. Excerpt from an interview with Howard Sattler, 6PR Radio, Australia. “Freedom, to me, is the ultimate value. There is nothing higher than freedom.”

About Osho

Osho is a enlightened mystic whose wisdom, clarity and humor have touched the lives of millions of people around the world. His insights are creating the conducive atmosphere or ‘ Atma-Sphere ” for the emergence of what he calls the ‘New Man’ or Zorba the Buddha, the combination of celebration, dance and song of Zorba and the silence, stillness and meditation of the Buddha, the meditation of the East and the materialism of the West. Zorba the Buddha is a totally new human being who is an awakened one, and he is life-affirmative and free. When someone asked Osho the definition of religion, Osho replied: To be in romance with life is religion.

  • Whether to rehabilitate or to run away
    and escape. Mother Teresa worked to rehabilitate but did not marry. For what did Osho
    not marry? I have also had shocks, I met a person who has gone through bigger shocks
    like Incestual/Child Sex Abuse – I’m trying to rehabilitate, which is quite difficult
    in the present political setup of India, but the other person is practicing Osho’s
    concept of Living.

  • I believe marriage is a beautiful, noble and great. and in general it does create a more stable personality for those who are married and their children. I would rather be with one woman and have a stable growing relationship though out our lives, then to be sleeping around every night and have shallow relationships.. although I am kinda freaked out about the thought of having children xD I hope that when the time comes I can be a good father and husband

  • I think OSHO is giving an answer from an indian society’s point of view. IN india it is still a big shame to get divorced and staying away from the partner.

  • I always appreciate Osho’s wisdom. I still think it’s much easier for him to see things the way he does not that I disagree with what he’s saying at all but as an example, he mentioned we are a nerotic society. This is true however, it’s harder to gravitate toward a more simple, sensible, peaceful way of life when you have grown up in a nerotic society. It’s not easy to just drop everything you have ever known and start over but, I’m still glad Osho teaches us anyway.

  • Something highly logical with Osho. I appeals to the core of our heart.
    Something highly illogical from him evokes abrupt laughter.
    Highly emotional issues exposed so coolly.I hate to love him if he is not so lovable. I would to hate him if he were not so convincing.

  • I appreciate his POV but he plays the whole grad pooh bah routine a little to stiffly for me.
    Still, seems like he’d be a real cool person to just hang out with when the cameras were off.

  • keep in mind two things when watching this

    1. Osho was past on to his grandparents after birth
    2. he never had children himself

  • i agree with your comment. it would only work if ALL members of the society were on the same moral highly enlightened standard….. which obviously would never be the case. Family does create safety and you would not have this in any other way

  • I find it hard to trust someone who never blinks, and anyone who advocates the abolition of the family unit in favour of a more ‘commune’ society. One only has to study the numerous failed experiments of the 20th century which resulted in the deaths of countless millions to find his ideas naive and foolish. I think rereading ‘A Brave New World’ is the perfect response to this.

  • Why do you think the opposite of marriage is sleeping around every night? There are as many ways to live life as there are people on the planet. Marriage does not promise stability. What about domestic abuse?
