    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
