Osho Thoughts and Quotes

Your mind has been corrupted by universities, colleges, education, society, economists, theologians etc. They have made it a conditioning deep down within you, that unless something has a purpose deep down within you it is useless – so everything must have a purpose. A child playing has no purpose. Collecting flowers, I enjoy, it is ecstatic – but there is no purpose. To be alive is enough, there no need for any purpose. Upanishad says ‘Live Richly.’ Western philosophy says ‘Die a rich man.’ If you want to live richly, you have to live here and now; not a single moment is to be lost. If you want to achieve something, you will die a rich man. But you will live a poor man; your life will be poor.OshoYou may also like to readOsho Quotes on Brahman and Ardhanarisvara
