“Never born – Never died – Only visited this planet Earth between December 11, 1931 and January 19, 1990” – Osho
In just these few words, Osho has summed up his entire life while also writing his own epitaph.
He erased his real name everywhere and only in the end did he agree to the term ‘Osho’ from ‘oceanic’ because it was sound that healed.
Born Chandra Mohan Jain in India, he went on to become a guru and a master of spirituality. Though he was later called Bhagwan Shree Rajnees, towards the end of his life, he was simply called Osho.
Once of his apprentices was surprised to hear him say ‘fuck’ and asked him why he did that. Osho’s reply was even more surprising.
According to him, ‘fuck’ was a word full of beauty and resilience. Even though it only has four letters, by just saying it one can mean many things from pleasure to pain to like and dislike.
Depending on the context, it works as a verb, both active and passive, as a noun, and as an adjective. There are very few other words out there which can be used in as many ways as ‘fuck’ can.
Though it is usually used in the context of things to do with s*x, it can be used in other ways as well.
You say ‘fuck’ when you’ve been cheated, when you’re angry, upset, suspicious, happy, hostile, shocked, anxious and even when you’re completely apathetic.
‘Fuck’ even works when you’re saying hello to someone or asking them to do something.
Osho also believed that saying it is good for one’s health. He advised his apprentice to say ‘fuck you’ a few times in the morning as soon as he wakes up so as to make his throat clear. Apparently that is how he meditated every morning!
You can find out more about what he has to say in ‘The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol 11, Ch 1, Q-8’ by Osho.
