From Darkness to Light

CHAPTER 1

Who says humanity needs saving?
28 February 1985 pm in Lao Tzu Grove


Question 1
BELOVED OSHO,
HOW CAN WE SAVE HUMANITY FROM FALLING EVEN MORE?
It is one of the trade secrets of all the religions to propose propaganda that humanity has to be
saved.
It is a very strange idea, but it is so old that nobody seems to look into the implications. Nobody asks
why you are worried about saving humanity. And you have been saving humanity for thousands of
years, but nothing seems to be saved.
In the first place, does humanity need any saving?
To answer this question all the religions have created an absolutely fictitious idea of the original fall,
because unless there is a fall the question of saving does not arise. And the religious conception of
the original fall is just rubbish.
Man has been evolving – not falling – in every possible way. The only way the original fall can be
supported is by the idea of evolution proposed by Charles Darwin; but religions cannot use that –
they are very much offended. Charles Darwin’s idea certainly can be put in such a way – at least by
the monkeys if not by man – that it was an original fall. Certainly if man has evolved out of monkeys
he must have fallen from the trees, and the monkeys who did not fall must have laughed at these idiots who had fallen. And there is a possibility that these were the weaker monkeys who could not
survive in the trees.
