Osho-The Great Zen Master Ta Hui

Chapter 1 - Clear the mind

Clear the mind
15 July 1987 am in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

BELOVED OSHO,

CLEAR THE MIND (TO LI HSIEN-CH'EN)
BUDDHA SAID, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE REALM OF BUDDHAHOOD, YOU
MUST MAKE YOUR MIND AS CLEAR AS EMPTY SPACE, AND LEAVE FALSE
THINKING AND ALL GRASPING FAR BEHIND, CAUSING YOUR MIND TO BE
UNOBSTRUCTED WHEREVER IT MAY TURN. THE REALM OF BUDDHAHOOD IS
NOT SOME EXTERNAL WORLD, WHERE THERE IS A FORMAL "BUDDHA": IT'S
THE REALM OF THE WISDOM OF A SELF-AWAKENED SAGE.

ONCE YOU ARE DETERMINED THAT YOU WANT TO KNOW THIS REALM,
YOU DO NOT NEED ADORNMENT, CULTIVATION, OR REALIZATION TO ATTAIN
IT. YOU MUST CLEAR AWAY THE STAINS OF AFFLICTIONS FROM ALIEN
SENSATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ON YOUR MIND SINCE BEGINNINGLESS TIME,
SO THAT YOUR MIND IS AS BROAD AND OPEN AS EMPTY SPACE, DETACHED
FROM ALL THE CLINGING OF THE DISCRIMINATING INTELLECT, AND YOUR
FALSE, UNREAL, VAIN THOUGHTS TOO ARE LIKE EMPTY SPACE. THEN THIS
WONDROUS, EFFORTLESS MIND WILL BE UNIMPEDED WHEREVER IT GOES.
MINDLESSNESS (TO HUNG PO-CH'ONG)

AN ANCIENT WORTHY HAD A SAYING: "TO LOOK FOR THE OX, ONE MUST
SEEK OUT ITS TRACKS. TO STUDY THE PATH, SEEK OUT MINDLESSNESS.
WHERE THE TRACKS ARE, SO MUST THE OX BE." THE PATH OF MINDLESSNESS
IS EASY TO SEEK OUT. SO-CALLED MINDLESSNESS IS NOT BEING INERT AND
UNKNOWING LIKE EARTH, WOOD, TILE, OR STONE; IT MEANS THAT THE MIND
IS SETTLED AND IMPERTURBABLE WHEN IN CONTACT WITH SITUATIONS AND
MEETING CIRCUMSTANCES; THAT IT DOES NOT CLING TO ANYTHING, BUT IS
CLEAR IN ALL PLACES, WITHOUT HINDRANCE OR OBSTRUCTION; WITHOUT
BEING STAINED, YET WITHOUT DWELLING IN THE STAINLESSNESS; VIEWING
BODY AND MIND LIKE DREAMS OR ILLUSIONS, YET WITHOUT REMAINING IN
THE PERSPECTIVE OF DREAMS' AND ILLUSIONS' EMPTY NOTHINGNESS.

ONLY WHEN ONE ARRIVES AT A REALM LIKE THIS, CAN IT BE CALLED TRUE
MINDLESSNESS. NO, IT'S NOT LIP-SERVICE MINDLESSNESS: IF YOU HAVEN'T
ATTAINED TRUE MINDLESSNESS AND JUST GO BY THE VERBAL KIND, HOW IS
THIS DIFFERENT FROM THE PERVERTED CH'AN OF "SILENT ILLUMINATION"?
"JUST GET TO THE ROOT, DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE BRANCHES."
EMPTYING THIS MIND IS THE ROOT. ONCE YOU GET THE ROOT, THE
FUNDAMENTAL, THEN ALL KINDS OF LANGUAGE AND KNOWLEDGE AND ALL
YOUR DAILY ACTIVITIES AS YOU RESPOND TO PEOPLE AND ADAPT TO
CIRCUMSTANCES, THROUGH SO MANY UPSETS AND DOWNFALLS, WHETHER
