“Zorba is the foundation and Buddha is the place”

“Zorba is the foundation and Buddha is the palace. Buddha is the peak, but the foundation stones are laid by Zorba. It will be foolish to choose to be a Buddha without having the foundation stones.

“I am absolutely mathematical about it: Zorba should be there and the stronger a Zorba is there, the better a Buddha is possible. So I can become Buddha any moment, Zorba is absolutely needed as the basic energy out of which the Buddha is going to be carved. Zorba is the marble rock out of which the Buddha statue has to be carved. I choose the rock…and Buddha is easy. “It is just a question of opening your eyes. I don’t bother about Buddha; I am worried about people who are not Zorbas. How will they become Buddhas? They don’t have the basic material out of which a Buddha is made.”

“Intellect is thinking. And consciousness is discovered in a state of no-thinking…”

“Intellect is thinking. And consciousness is discovered in a state of no-thinking, so — utter silence, that not even a single thought moves as a disturbance. In that silence you discover your very being — it is as vast as the sky. And to know it is really to know something worthwhile; otherwise all your knowledge is garbage. It may be useful, utilitarian, but it is not going to help you transform your being.It cannot bring you to a fulfillment, to contentment, to enlightenment, to a point where you can say, “I have come home.” ~ Osho
