Title:Don't Just Do Something, Sit There: A Darshan Diary
Publisher:Ma Yoga Laxmi Rajneesh Foundation
Size:280 x 223 mm
In this book, Osho contemplates on the quintessential question of life's ultimate goal. "What is it?" He asks. The answer is: "There is none." He points out that life's only goal is life, itself. There is no end one must attain, there is no journey one must take. To breathe, to live, to love, is the only purpose. According to Osho, the problem with Western logic is this: there is always a goal one must accomplish. From Socrates to Sartre to Christianity, one's existence is constantly challenged. We are always expected to DO SOMETHING in order EARN our right to exist. Yet, Osho warns us, that by wanting to do something, one is constantly living in the future. The present is ignored. Life is ignored. We are always thinking of our reward, our heaven. Ultimately, we end up missing the whole purpose of life-- when, in truth, all we have to do, is sit down, and breathe.
This book is the twenty third in the Rajneesh Foundation's darshan diary series.
