    Just Like That



    Just Like That


    CHAPTER 1


    The unteachable teaching
    1 May 1975 am in Buddha Hall


    A MAN CAME TO LIBNANI, A SUFI TEACHER, AND THIS INTERCHANGE TOOK PLACE.
    MAN: I WISH TO LEARN. WILL YOU TEACH ME?
    LIBNANI: I DO NOT FEEL THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO LEARN.
    MAN: CAN YOU TEACH ME HOW TO LEARN?
    LIBNANI: CAN YOU LEARN HOW TO LET ME TEACH YOU?


    Truth cannot be taught... but it can be learned. And between these two sentences is the key of all
    understanding. So let me repeat: truth cannot be taught, but it can be learned – because truth is
    not a teaching, not a doctrine, not a theory, a philosophy, or something like that. Truth is existence.
    Truth is BEING. Nothing can be said about it.

    If you start saying something about it you will go round and round. You will beat around the bush,
    but you will never reach the center of it. Once you ask a question ABOUT you are already on the
    path of missing it. It can be encountered directly, but not through about. There is no VIA MEDIA.
    Truth is here and now. Only truth is. Nothing else exists. So the moment you raise a question about
    it the mind has already moved away. You are somewhere else, not here and now.

    Truth cannot be taught because words cannot convey it. Words are impotent. Truth is vast,
    tremendously vast, infinite. Words are very very narrow. You cannot force truth into words, it is
    impossible. And how is one going to teach without words?
