OSHO: My Way Of Life is Not Philosophy

My Way Of Life is Not Philosophy No philosopher has ever been able to know the truth. All the philosophers have been thinking about the truth. But thinking about the truth is an impossibility. Either you know it, or you don’t.


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.

  • As a Ph. D. in Philosphy let be say that your option is backed by nothing.

    You cannot know truth, you can experience it, you can seek it, but it is outside of the human experience to know truth. And if you “know” truth and yet deny the existence of God then your denying truth, that which you claim to “know”

    A man that knows, and knows that he knows, knows nothing

  • wow Bruce lee said the same thing from 2:30 to 4:20. this is the link i know bruce lee says it in a movie but he said it no one told him to say it. (Finger Pointing to the Moon – Bruce Lee) from 1:16 to the end. i am trying to find other videos where bruse lee is going in to more detail about it.

  • speaking in terms of knowledge, yoBut this man doens’t claim to know anything. His point of view comes out of accepting relativity of knowledge and “truth” and seeing the only absolute truth in raw experience.

  • whit all due respect,you are trying too hard,this man doesn’t try to prove or state nothing,he only says what he sees and understands.you ph. d. doesn’t help you here.

  • lets say i wanted to solve a math problem. by looking at it without solving it before i will simply not be able to solve it. i will need to think. eyes to not discover the truth about life in all its aspects, but lets us notice things and analyze it on our own way to get a meaning out of it. i love Philosophy because i like wisdom. i created my personal Philosophy and understand life in my own way. if people follow him we all will have the same way of life which is imposible.

  • if you replace “same way” with “similar way”, your impossible go away.

    There is much behind this few min. speech he gave. There is one of the most profound wisdom behind what he said… read “no water, no moon” to understand it.

  • Listening to the rhythmic tone of this man’s voice, coupled with his insight, are undeserved pleasures.

  • the basic logic of life is that out of nothing, nothing comes. he is saying, you can only know what you see. instead of thinking about life, let life impose itself onto you. experience life consciously or you will not know what you see and continue on thinking. guessing.

  • he is the master of masters. he is ahead of our times. only intellectuals can understand him, but his way will definitely change the world.

  • A wise man shouldn’t put an “approval of comment” block on his videos. Sorry I’m a philosopher…

    But this guy has been doing some philosophzing himself. What I get out of this video is the message; Ignorance is bliss. He seems to be pretty happy

  • There is a difference between ‘arguments’ and simple ‘statement of facts’. The philosophers get involved into arguments by using linguistic approach, Osho simply states facts out of his direct experience. Of course to convey an idea language has to be used but every intelligent statement can be termed as “Philosophizing”.

  • sorry but first you must taste the outside of your mind to understand, philosophy is creating answers to questions then more questions are created, but if you just let go your mind, you will be illuminated, then like osho say, you will be blissfull, because you are wachting sunset but you mind is lik:my car is well parked,wich road should i choose?, so what osho try to say is that life is a mistiry to be lived not to be thinking, peace and love brother! no-mind more love!
