Truth works in a miraculous way! Truth too mutates to prevail.
My English is poor, pronunciation is further ahead of it. Still I write so that you may get a glimpse towards which I am pointing to, like it happens when you ask a stranger in non-English speaking country about something and he or she tries to explain it. If you are thirsty of this knowledge, so you get it too. The consciousness plays an important role in communicating the point at much higher level where we all are connected because I am writing only from my own experiences or understanding.
In this post I have tried to explain that when a person teaches you to be able to read & write, it is the biggest transfer of trust by an educated person on another illiterate person.
The educated one trusted you that together we both get benefitted. He is expecting something from you that is not known or even not knowable for him, such ignorance on behalf of self and such trust on another that after learning the other may not share his wisdom or may perform far better than the educated one and abandon him.
Upper cast Hindu’s kept the secret with them for 5000 years from lower class people or follower of their own religion due to lack of this trust on existence. They insisted that for them owing land is best option than to be able to read!
It is only after Mohammedans and Christians came to our country that we were able to read and write. Had they not came to India, my father could not have become a Surgeon and it is impossible for me to imagine myself as an Engineer.

This is not the case with poor people in every religion except Hindu. The book outweighs the money or land earned with hard work. This is the reason God created these religions which encourages reading from books.
But the real objective of God behind giving book in your hand is that it increases your speed towards your destiny or salvation or enlightenment.
Instead of cursing just look at the opportunity in the hands. Who is stopping you?
If you could read just 300 books by Osho in English, and apply the experiments he suggested you will find that you got more and lost little by loosing land. His books are having essence of 150,000 books he read as well as his own experiences too.
Before 5000 years from now, Indian Mystics discovered that reading helps in salvation. They wrote Upanishads, to convey their message to the people. When people read them their speed of grasping the subtle things present in them increased. This caused worry to a section of society Brahmins mainly, and together with the help of Baniya (Businessman-Marwari and Agrawal ), Kayastha (Gupta etc) and Kshtriya (the Kings) they barred people from reading books and stopped teaching Sanskrit to them -in which it was written by Mystics in those times. Instead they forced them to keep the land. As this will keep them away from knowledge about truth forever. Sanskrit is a poetic language, so many meanings comes out from same word and only an enlightened person can get its essence, otherwise people could modify them to get benefit out of it. So these people kept looking for things/verses or meaning of verses in Sanskrit that benefit their intentions.
But the truth works in a miraculous way, it has eternity in store to prevail over these peoples. It is still quite smaller an amount for truth than spending just $2.5K more by Jeff Bezos or Warren Buffett to get their choice of item for their use or simply by paying ₹2,500/- by Mukesh Ambani to get a job done as per their will. So 2,500 years before came the Buddha. He started preaching in local dialect! Hindu Brahmins thought educating these people ie ‘Giving books in replacement of land’-in this case, is going to harm their ‘so called Hindu religion’ which was not at all in shape to let truth survive through it!
He was thrown out of India, so as to save the Hindu religion?
Even God or Truth or Love or Beauty is fed up with these peoples 2000 years before!
So the truth took birth through Jesus and Mohammed in an altogether new region so that the truth can remain for eternity. These religion brought equality among all people, reading and scientific experiments are made available to the masses. So through rulers of Muslim and Christian religion poor villagers started getting educated! Buddhism too came back to India! This is why drafters of our constitution kept ‘सत्यमेव जयते’, the declaration in Mandukyopnishad by ancient rishis/mystics.
These regions are still not open towards a natural tendency of nature to create new every day-through sex or biological process in nature. Fruits we eat and we are it’s outcome too, including us.
Then truth mutated as Osho to let people of all religion accept it as a natural thing. His most of the disciples are from west. For them he suggested ‘Awareness Meditation’ as the key because Zen process -through which Buddhism survived-is very long and arduous. Osho said that when Buddha came to know the truth after making all out efforts, and finding them as futile, in that relaxed state of mind he got enlightened. If we are living a life where it is already tough to manage things together then for spiritual progress there is no need to follow another tough path. You have learned lesson there itself, so why not to start from reaching the relaxed state through awareness meditation? There is no need to invent the wheel again, just use it.
So not only Corona mutates, over time Truth too mutates to lead more and more people to salvation or enlightenment.
So ancient wisdom is fine, but new too needs to be incorporated. Whatever exists is just the form taken by the formless for a grand drama in this existence. We all are puppets in his hands but the thread joining us to him, could lead us to reach to him too. Upon reaching only you could recognise that you are actually the Truth, and the puppet is just your role.
If anyone or if any society creates hurdles in letting it reach to the masses then it mutates to get it done. Timelessness has eternity in store to get it done. So any effort by anyone or any group of people or any society tries to stop flow of the truth towards masses then it is going to be in vain — in long run- but in the process the people doing such acts gets very badly affected.
this gift of life as human being is give to progress in any way towards finding the Truth and become free from cycle of death and life.
Unsuccessful attempt in the last life lead to the opportunity of taking birth as human being in this life.
The world is created such that it’s allurement will drive the person towards success in material world. While the Truth again and again keep putting the person on the path towards enlightenment.
The desires of one person ‘A’ towards success in material world will create another desire in other person ‘B’ at right time, whose action will put this person ‘A’ on path of truth again. All accidents or unplanned events that ‘happen’ in our life are in fulfilment of the desires of the truth.
If you blame the other person than you are creating another deviation. And in this way we keep on making desires again and again and in the end the person ‘A’ finds that the life is gone waste.
All the ‘happenings’ are as per the grand plan of the Truth so that everyone in this world gets enlightened or awakened or liberated from this cycle of life and death.
This is why the final falling into the Truth also ‘happens’ like an accident happens. In an accident something happens, so there must be a doer of it. The effect is there, so there must be a cause too, you may find the cause later on but that may not be the right one. Whatever you find comes from your own experience only. How you can find that is beyond your experience?
Lao Tzu called it Wu-Wei-Wu or Pathless path -you reached somewhere but you have not walked for it or Zen people call it effortless effort as they practice in Archery and Samuruai swordsmanship.
Any effort to drop desire is again a desire so that also does not work or even complicates the matter.
Awareness meditation practice for even 1–2 minutes in any of your daily routine act is of great help for me. Over a long period of time it automatically make you peaceful and desire free one by one, that even you could not notice it. Only the other person meeting after 20–25 years could recognise the change in you.
This is called as ‘सहज’ or ‘naturally’ by mystic Kabir. The enlightenment is your true nature. You got deviated from it due to the effect of society which brought you up from childhood. But there is no other way too, and it’s solution or antidote also lies with you this is why the Truth is not worried about its ill effects.
Mindfulness meditation or awareness meditation creates enough antibodies in your soul to get over these harmful effects of society around us. After enlightenment you start spreading these antibodies to other needy people by mere your presence near them. This is why it is recommended to live in company of enlightened persons. They act as vaccine for you, by just mere presence near them your antibodies starts growing.
Osho recommended that my true sannyason will live in society like a normal person, and benefit others. There is no need to run an Osho Meditation centre or Osho Ashram to get this done. They are for providing books, mp3 and Videos and minimal training for the desiring person. There too it is encouraged to experiment more and more on self or with nature by living silent. Keep eyes shut more and more, silence of mouth and ears too, eat minimum and live aloof from surrounding. This is true fasting as per Osho. So Osho ashram provides you a place away from home where you could live undistracted and alone with yourself or your inner being or the Truth.
If you could create such atmosphere at home or any other place for yourself that is best. You are benefitted by the presence of enlightened person unknowingly when you were in market. This way your effort and presence of master both get fulfilled.
Osho says that this way you are giving an opportunity to the truth to get discovered or reveal itself to you. This way at least you are not creating new desires and not making route tougher for yourself to get truth revealed to you.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

This is an opportunity for learning and knowing Osho through these sannyasins who lived in his presence and brought to life his words in best possible quality in all formats.
Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.
Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
