Hari Om Tat Sat
Back of the Book
'This sound of om is our very truth, is our very being,' says Osho, and then shows clearly and powerfully how this truth is to be found in the inner silence of all human beings. Giving uncompromising and insightful responses to questions on love and belonging, consciousness and meditation, and world issues, Osho is emphatic that the only meaningful truth comes from turning inward. He insists that the concept of God has no place in existence, and thus man has both freedom and responsibility: the condition of our planet depends on us, and all the power necessary for transforming it is within ourselves.
Silence usually is understood to be something negative, something empty, an absence of sound, of noises. This misunderstanding is prevalent because very few people have ever experienced silence. All that they have experienced in the name of silence is noiselessness. But silence is a totally different phenomenon. It is utterly positive. It is existential, it is not empty. It is overflowing with a music that you have never heard before, with a fragrance that is unfamiliar to you, with a light that can only be seen by the inner eyes. It is not something fictitious; it is a reality, and a reality which is already present in everyone - just we never look in.
Your inner world has its own taste, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent, immensely silent, eternally silent. There has never been any noise, and there will never be any noise. No word can reach there, but you can reach. The mind cannot reach there, but you can reach because you are not the mind. The function of the mind is to be a bridge between you and the objective world, and the function of the heart is to be a bridge between you and yourself.
