    Zarathustra: The Laughing Prophet


    CHAPTER 1


    Of the famous philosophers
    8 April 1987 am in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

    BELOVED OSHO,
    OF THE FAMOUS PHILOSOPHERS
    YOU HAVE SERVED THE PEOPLE AND THE PEOPLE’S SUPERSTITIONS, ALL YOU FAMOUS
    PHILOSOPHERS! – YOU HAVE NOT SERVED TRUTH! AND IT IS PRECISELY FOR THAT
    REASON THAT THEY PAID YOU REVERENCE....
    AND YOUR HEART ALWAYS SAID TO ITSELF: ‘I CAME FROM THE PEOPLE: GOD’S VOICE,
    TOO, CAME TO ME FROM THEM.’
    YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OBSTINATE AND CUNNING, LIKE THE ASS, AS THE PEOPLE’S
    ADVOCATE....
    AH, FOR ME TO LEARN TO BELIEVE IN YOUR ‘GENUINENESS’, YOU WOULD FIRST HAVE TO
    BREAK YOUR WILL TO VENERATE.
    GENUINE – THAT IS WHAT I CALL HIM WHO GOES INTO GOD-FORSAKEN DESERTS AND
    HAS BROKEN HIS VENERATING HEART....
    ... BUT IN THE TOWNS DWELL THE WELL-FED FAMOUS PHILOSOPHERS – THE DRAUGHT
    ANIMALS.
    FOR THEY ALWAYS, AS ASSES, PULL – THE PEOPLE’S CART!..
    YOU ARE STILL OF THE PEOPLE EVEN IN YOUR VIRTUE, OF THE PEOPLE WITH THEIR
    PURBLIND EYES – OF THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT SPIRIT IS!
    SPIRIT IS THE LIFE THAT ITSELF STRIKES INTO LIFE: THROUGH ITS OWN TORMENT IT
    INCREASES ITS OWN KNOWLEDGE – DID YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE?
    AND THIS IS THE SPIRIT’S HAPPINESS: TO BE ANOINTED AND BY TEARS CONSECRATED
    AS A SACRIFICIAL BEAST – DID YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE?
    AND THE BLINDNESS OF THE BLIND MAN AND HIS SEEKING AND GROPING SHALL YET
    BEAR WITNESS TO THE POWER OF THE SUN INTO WHICH HE GAZED – DID YOU KNOW
    THAT BEFORE?
    AND THE ENLIGHTENED MAN SHALL LEARN TO BUILD WITH MOUNTAINS! IT IS A SMALL
    THING FOR THE SPIRIT TO MOVE MOUNTAINS – DID YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE?
    YOU KNOW ONLY THE SPARKS OF THE SPIRIT: BUT YOU DO NOT SEE THE ANVIL WHICH
    THE SPIRIT IS, NOR THE FEROCITY OF ITS HAMMER!
    IN TRUTH, YOU DO NOT KNOW THE SPIRIT’S PRIDE! BUT EVEN LESS COULD YOU ENDURE
    THE SPIRIT’S MODESTY, IF IT SHOULD EVER DEIGN TO SPEAK!...
    YOU ARE NO EAGLES: SO NEITHER DO YOU KNOW THE SPIRIT’S JOY IN TERROR. AND HE
    WHO IS NOT A BIRD SHALL NOT MAKE HIS HOME ABOVE ABYSSES.
    YOU ARE TEPID: BUT ALL DEEP KNOWLEDGE FLOWS COLD. THE INNERMOST WELLS OF
    THE SPIRIT ARE ICE-COLD: A REFRESHMENT TO HOT HANDS AND HANDLERS.
    YOU STAND THERE RESPECTABLE AND STIFF AND WITH A STRAIGHT BACK, YOU FAMOUS
    PHILOSOPHERS! – NO STRONG WIND OR WILL PROPELS YOU.
    HAVE YOU NEVER SEEN A SAIL FARING OVER THE SEA, ROUNDED AND SWELLING AND
    SHUDDERING BEFORE THE IMPETUOSITY OF THE WIND?
    LIKE A SAIL, SHUDDERING BEFORE THE IMPETUOSITY OF THE SPIRIT, MY WISDOM FARES
    OVER THE SEA – MY UNTAMED WISDOM!
    BUT YOU SERVANTS OF THE PEOPLE, YOU FAMOUS PHILOSOPHERS – HOW COULD YOU
    FARE WITH ME?
    ... THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA.
