Osho Quotes on Death

The mind goes on dividing on every level of being. Wherever the mind looks, immediately it divides; division, to divide, is the nature of the mind. So we say, ‘above and below;’ we say ‘up and down;’ we say ‘this world and the other world’; we say ‘life and death; we say in and out’; ‘extroversion and introversion – but all the division are of the mind. The below is part of the above, the beginning of the above; up is nothing but the extension of down. Life and death are not two, but the same energy arising is life, the same energy dissolving is death. Our mind in are not two; the division is only mental.

Purity simply means an uncontaminated state of mind, where only your consciousness is and nothing else. Nothing else really enters into your consciousness, but if you hanker to possess, that hankering contaminates you. If you don't want to possess anything, you become fearless. Then even death is a beautiful experience.

In life things are very mixed up. Like day and night, life and death, you have happiness and unhappiness. Life is rich because of polar opposites.

We go on believing that we are separate. We are not; not even for a single moment. Drop the idea of separation and the fear of death disappears. If you become one with the whole you will live forever. You will go beyond birth and death.
