Remarkably is the answer, other worldly another.
In his insightful and recently published little book, My Dance with a Madman, (recalling his reflections of his life with Osho,) Anand Subhuti. a former parliamentary correspondent in the UK House of Commons, records on this subject something we found surprising. (Subhuti was in a somewhat privileged position of access to Osho for some years as he was one of the main press people in the Pune ashram.)
“‘Can a lazy man become enlightened” a question to Osho from an English therapist in the seventies, Subhuti records. Osho’s answer “Only a lazy man can become enlightened” !
Subhuti goes on “Osho certainly practiced what he preached. When he wasn’t giving discourse, or darshan, or meeting his various secretaries, he was sitting alone in his room doing nothing. Just to give you an idea of what this (latter) means, I’ll tell you about the expensive Swiss watch that was given to him. It had a delicate self winding mechanism designed to use ordinary everyday movements to power rewinding. It did not need a battery, or a hand winding mechanism. When it was placed on Osho’s wrist, there was a problem! it stopped. He just didn’t move enough to power it. So he gave the watch away to one of his dsciples. ”
Subhuti adds, “To me, this capacity to be still, silent and alone is the most rare and extraordinary quality of any human being.”
The view of Osho largely sitting in his room doing nothing has been challenged elsewhere as a Poona one myth. But Subhuti’s close hand experience of Osho, and this story of his offers some confirmation.
