50 Thought-Provoking Osho Quotes

#1

“Be — don’t try to become”
― Osho

#2

“Experience life in all possible ways – good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.”
― Osho

#3

“Be realistic: Plan for a miracle”
― Osho

#4

“Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking at what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable, you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself…

Whenever you are self-conscious you are simply showing that you are not conscious of the self at all. You don’t know who you are. If you had known, then there would have been no problem— then you are not seeking opinions. Then you are not worried what others say about you— it is irrelevant!

When you are self-conscious you are in trouble. When you are self-conscious you are really showing symptoms that you don’t know who you are. Your very self-consciousness indicates that you have not come home yet.”
― Osho

#5

Best Osho Quote Image

“Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.”
― Osho

#6

“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person–without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.”
Osho

#7

“Truth is not something outside to be discovered, it is something inside to be realized.”
― Osho

#8

“I love this world because it is imperfect. It is imperfect, and that’s why it is growing; if it was perfect it would have been dead. Growth is possible only if there is an imperfection. I would like you to remember, again and again, I am imperfect, the whole universe is imperfect, and to love this imperfection, to rejoice in this imperfection is my whole message.”
― Osho

#9

“A certain darkness is needed to see the stars.”
― Osho

#10

“Fame is foolish, it is pointless, meaningless. Even if the whole world knows you, how does it make you richer? How does it make your life more blissful? How does it help you to be more understanding, to be more aware? To be more alert, to be more alive?”
― Osho

#11

“Truth is not to be found outside. No teacher, no scripture can give it to you. It is inside you and if you wish to attain it, seek your own company. Be with yourself. ”
― Osho

#12

“The natural desire of the human mind is to become special – to become special in the ways of the world, to have many degrees, to have much political power, to have money, wealth – to be special.

The mind is always ready to go on some ego trip. And if you are fed up with the world, then again the ego starts finding new ways and new means to enhance itself – it becomes spiritual. You become a great mahatma, a great sage, a great scholar, a man of knowledge, a man of renunciation; again you are special.

Unless the desire to be special disappears, you will never be special. Unless you relax into your ordinariness, you will never relax.”
― Osho

#13

“Here, start living moment to moment totally and intensely, joyfully and playfully — and you will see that nothing goes out of control; that your intelligence becomes sharper; that you become younger; that your love becomes deeper. And when you go out into the world, wherever you go, spread life, playfulness, joy, as far away as possible — to every nook and corner of the earth.”
Osho

#14

“They say: “Think twice before you jump”. I say: “Jump first and then think as much as you want!”
Osho

#15

“If you want to learn anything, learn trust – nothing else is needed. If you are miserable, nothing else will help – learn trust. If you don’t feel any meaning in life and you feel meaningless, nothing will help – learn trust. Trust gives meaning because trust makes you capable of allowing the whole descend upon you.”
― Osho

#16

“One just needs a little alertness to see and find out: Life is really great cosmic laughter.”
― Osho

#17

“I also teach you to love yourself first. It has nothing to do with ego. In fact, love is such a light that the darkness of the ego cannot exist in it at all. If you love others, if your love is focused on others, you will live in darkness. Turn your light toward yourself first, become a light unto yourself first. Let the light dispel your inner darkness, your inner weakness. Let love make you tremendous power, a spiritual force.”
― Osho

#18

“To live in the moment is innocence, to live without the past is innocence, to live without conclusions is innocence, to function out of the state of not knowing is innocence. And the moment you function out of such tremendous silence which is not burdened by any past, out of such tremendous stillness which knows nothing, the experience that happens is beauty. Whenever you feel the beauty in the rising sun, in the stars, in the flowers, or in the face of a woman or a man—wherever and whenever you feel beauty, watch.

And one thing will always be found: you had functioned without mind, you had functioned without any conclusion, you had simply functioned spontaneously. The moment gripped you, and the moment gripped you so deeply that you were cut off from the past. And when you are cut off from the past you are cut off from the future automatically because past and future are two aspects of the same coin; they are not separate, and they are not separable either. You can toss a coin: sometimes it is heads, sometimes it is tails, but the other part is always there, hiding behind. Past”
― Osho

#19

“Be ordinary, but bring a quality of awareness to your ordinary life. Bring God to your ordinary life introduce God into your ordinary life. Sleep, eat, love, pray, meditate, but don’t think that you are making or doing something special—and then you will be special.”
― Osho

#20

Best Osho Sayings Image

“Sing your song, and if nobody listens, sing it alone and enjoy it.”
― Osho

#21

“If you know your being, there is no question of becoming. All that you could have ever imagined to become you already are. You are gods who have forgotten who they are. You are emperors who have fallen asleep and are dreaming that they have become beggars. Now beggars are trying to become emperors, in dreams, they are making great efforts to become emperors, and all that is needed is to wake up!”
― Osho

#22

“If you live with unhealthy people, to be healthy is dangerous. If you live with insane people, then to be sane is dangerous. If you live in a madhouse, even if you are not mad at least pretend that you are mad; otherwise those mad people will kill you.”
― Osho

#23

“Don’t try to understand life. Live it! Don’t try to understand love. Move into love. Then you will know – and all that knowing will come out of your experiencing. The more you know, the more you know that much remains to be known.”
― Osho

#24

“Find ecstasy within yourself. It is not out there. It is in your innermost flowering. The one you are looking for is you.”
― Osho

#25

“You become more divine as you become more creative. All the religions of the world have said God is the creator. I don’t know whether he is the creator or not, but one thing I know: the more creative you become, the more godly you become. When your creativity comes to a climax, when your whole life becomes creative, you live in God. So he must be the creator because people who have been creative have been closest to him. Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it – whatsoever it is”
― Osho

#26

Love is the goal, life is the journey.”
Osho

#27

“My whole teaching consists of two words: meditation and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life.”
― Osho

#28

“Love and respect yourself and never compromise for anything. And then you will be surprised how much growth starts happening of its own accord.. as if rocks have been removed and the river has started flowing.”
― Osho

#29

“They were afraid of your authentic love because authentic love is beyond their control.You are possessed by it. You are not the possessor, you are the possessed. And every society wants you to be in control. The society is afraid of your wild nature, it is afraid of your naturalness, so from the very beginning it starts cutting your wings. And the most basic thing which is dangerous in you is the possibility of love because if you are possessed by love you can go even against the whole world.”
― Osho

#30

Osho quote about being alone image

“It is beautiful to be alone, it is also beautiful to be in love, to be with people. And they are complementary, not contradictory.”
― Osho

#31

“If you live consciously, if you try to bring consciousness to every act that you go through, you will be living in a silent, blissful state, in serenity, in joy, in love. Your life will have the flavor of a festival. That is the meaning of heaven: your life will have many flowers in it, much fragrance will be released through you. You will have an aura of delight. Your life will be a song of life-affirmation, it will be a sacred yes to all that existence is. You will be in communion with existence — in communion with stars, with the trees, with the rivers, with the mountains, with people, with animals.

This whole life and this whole existence will have a totally different meaning for you. From every nook and corner, rivers of bliss will be flowing towards you. Heaven is just a name for that state of mind. Hell means you are living so unconsciously, so absurdly, in such contradiction, that you go on creating more and more misery for yourself.”
― Osho

#32

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.”
― Osho

#33

“Just being alive is such a gift, but nobody ever told you to be thankful to existence. On the contrary, everyone was grumpy, complaining. Naturally, if everything surrounding your life from the very beginning goes on pointing out to you that you are not what you should be, goes on giving you great ideals that you have to follow and you have to become, your isness is never praised. What is praised is your future – if you can become someone respectable, powerful, rich, intellectual, in some way famous, not just a nobody.”
― Osho

#34

“There is a great difference between trust and belief. Trust is personal, belief is social.”
― Osho

#35

“Never belong to a crowd. Never belong to a nation. Never belong to a religion. Never belong to a race. Belong to the whole existence. Why limit yourself to small things? When the whole is available.”
― Osho

#36

“Tension means you want to be something else which you are not.”
― Osho

#37

“Whenever you feel that someone is angry or someone has collided with you, you always think that he is responsible. This is how ignorance concludes, interprets. Ignorance always says, ”The other is responsible.” Wisdom always says, ”If somebody is responsible, then I am responsible, and the only way not to collide is not to be.”

”I am responsible” doesn’t mean, ”I am doing something, that is why they are angry.” That is not the question. You may not be doing anything, but just your being there is enough for people to get angry. The question is not whether you are doing good or bad. The question is that you are there.”
― Osho

#38

“Help the world to become better. Don’t leave the world just the same as you have found it – make it a little better, make it a little more beautiful.”
― Osho

#39

Saying About Life Meaning Image

“Life in itself has no meaning. Life is an opportunity to create meaning.”
― Osho

#40

“We are formed by what we do. It is our actions that ultimately make us. What we do slowly, slowly becomes the creator of our lives and our souls. What we are doing in life decides how we are creating ourselves. What our behavior is in life decides the directions our soul will travel, the paths it will move on, the new worlds it will explore.”
― Osho

#41

Buddha is a Buddha, a Krishna is a Krishna, and you are you. And you are not in any way less than anybody else. Respect yourself, respect your own inner voice and follow it.”
― Osho

#42

“Courage is a love affair with the unknown.”
― Osho

#43

“You need not search for uniqueness, you are unique already. There is no way to make a thing more unique. The words “more unique” are absurd. It is just like the word “circle.” Circles exist; there is no such thing as “more circular.” That is absurd. A circle is always perfect, “more” is not needed.”
― Osho

#44

“The family is one of the greatest traps that society has used for millennia to keep man a slave.”
― Osho

#45

“You are being taught everything, but you are not being taught to be yourself. This is the ugliest form of society possible because it makes everybody miserable.”
― Osho

#46

Quote on creativity image

“Creativity is the fragrance of individual freedom.”
― Osho

#47

“A totally new kind of education is needed in the world. The person who is born to be a poet is proving himself stupid in mathematics and the person who could have been a great mathematician is just cramming history and feeling lost. Everything is topsy-turvy because education is not according to your nature: it does not pay any respect to the individual. It forces everybody into a certain pattern.”
― Osho

#48

“Fighting with anybody is dangerous because you become like your enemy. That is one of the greatest problems of humanity. Once you fight with somebody, by and by you have to use the same techniques and the same ways. Then the enemy may be defeated, but by the time he is defeated you have become your own enemy.”
― Osho

#49

“Truth cannot be found by intellectual effort because the truth is not a theory, it is an experience.”
― Osho

#50

“People are afraid, very much afraid of those who know themselves. They have a certain power, a certain aura, and a certain magnetism – a charisma that can take out alive, young people from the traditional imprisonment. The enlightened man cannot be enslaved – that is the difficulty – and he cannot be imprisoned. The enlightened man is the greatest stranger in the world, he does not seem to belong to anybody. No organization confines him, no community, no society, no nation”
― Osho

Published

on

Patanjali Quotes Image

Patanjali was a sage in ancient India who was considered the author of a number of Sanskrit works. He compiled a collection of aphorisms that serve as a guide for spiritual seekers. These writings have become known as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and are considered a foundational text of Yoga. In this article, we will share with you 33 wise Patanjali quotes to help you understand the yoga philosophy more deeply and attain inner peace.

33 Patanjali Quotes

#1

“Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.” ~ Patanjali

#2

“Every morning put your mind into your heart and stand in the presence of God all the day long.” ~ Patañjali

#3

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” ~ Patanjali

#4

“Here is, in truth, the whole secret of Yoga, the science of the soul. The active turnings, the strident vibrations, of selfishness, lust, and hate are to be stilled by meditation, by letting heart and mind dwell in the spiritual life, by lifting up the heart to the strong, silent life above, which rests in the stillness of eternal love, and needs no harsh vibration to convince it of true being.” ~ Patanjali

#5

“A mind free from all disturbances is yoga.” ~ Patanjali

#6

“Aversion is a form of bondage. We are tied to what we hate or fear. That is why, in our lives, the same problem, the same danger or difficulty, will present itself over and over again in various prospects, as long as we continue to resist or run away from it instead of examining it and solving it.” ~ Patanjali

#7

“There is always a light within us that is free from all sorrow and grief, no matter how much we may be experiencing suffering.” ~ Patanjali

#8

“The way to eliminate ignorance is through steady, focused discrimination between the observer and the world.” ~ Patanjali

#9

“Just as the pure crystal takes color from the object which is nearest to it, so the mind, when it is cleared of thought-waves, achieves sameness or identity with the object of its concentration.” ~ Patanjali

#10

“Asanas bring perfection in body, beauty in form, grace, strength, compactness, and the hardness and brilliance of a diamond.” ~ Patanjali

#11

Patanjali Quote Image

“The longest journey begins with a single step.” ~ Patanjali

#12

“Yoga is the settling of the mind into silence. When the mind has settled, we are established in our essential nature, which is unbounded Consciousness. Our essential nature is usually overshadowed by the activity of the mind.” ~ Patanjali

“This is true of the physical powers, and of those which dwell in the higher vestures. There must be, first, purity; as the blood must be pure, before one can attain physical health. But the absence of impurity is not in itself enough, else would many nerveless ascetics of the cloisters rank as high saints. There is needed, further, a positive fire of the will; a keen vital vigor for the physical powers, and something finer, purer, stronger, but of kindred essence, for the higher powers. The fire of genius is something more than a phrase, for there can be no genius without the celestial fire of the awakened spiritual will.” ~ Patanjali

#14

“If you can control the rising of the mind into ripples, you will experience yoga.” ~ Patanjali

#15

“The heart and mind can find peace and harmony by contemplating the transcendental nature of the true self as supreme effulgent life.” ~ Patanjali

#16

“In deep meditation, the flow of concentration is continuous like the flow of oil.” ~ Patanjali

#17

“When you are steadfast in your abstention of thoughts of harm directed toward yourself and others, all living creatures will cease to feel fear in your presence.” ~ Patanjali

#18

“The activities of the liberated soul transcend the pairs of opposites.” ~ Patanjali

#19

“The wisdom obtained in the higher states of consciousness is different from that obtained by inference and testimony as it refers to particulars.” ~ Patanjali

#20

“Success is nearest to those whose efforts are intense and sincere.” ~ Patanjali

Patanjali Quotes

#21

Yoga Sutra Quote Image

“Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists.” ~ Patanjali

#22

“Sloth is the great enemy — the inspirer of cowardice, irresolution, self-pitying grief, and trivial, hairsplitting doubts. Sloth may also be a psychological cause of sickness. It is tempting to relax from our duties, take refuge in ill-health and hide under a nice warm blanket.” ~ Patanjali

#23

“The cause of suffering is that the unbounded Self is overshadowed by the world.” ~ Patanjali

#24

Egotism is but the perversion of spiritual being. Ambition is the inversion of spiritual power. Passion is the distortion of love. The mortal is the limitation of the immortal. When these false images give place to true, then the spiritual man stands forth luminous, as the sun, when the clouds disperse.” ~ Patanjali

#25

“When the mind is clear, empty of memories and knowledge, things are seen exactly as they are.” ~ Patanjali

#26

“Life cannot be known by the “mind,” its secrets cannot be learned through the “mind.” The proof is, the ceaseless strife and contradiction of opinion among those who trust in the mind. Much less can the “mind” know itself, the more so, because it is pervaded by the illusion that it truly knows, truly is.” ~ Patanjali

#27

“When one is confirmed in celibacy, spiritual vigor is gained.” ~ Patanjali

#28

“The Mind is not self-luminous, since it can be seen as an object. This is a further step toward overthrowing the tyranny of the “mind”: the psychic nature of emotion and mental measuring. This psychic self, the personality, claims to be absolute, asserting that life is for it and through it; it seeks to impose on the whole being of man its narrow, materialistic, faithless view of life and the universe; it would clip the wings of the soaring Soul. But the Soul dethrones the tyrant, by perceiving and steadily affirming that the psychic self is no true self at all, not self-luminous, but only an object of observation, watched by the serene eyes of the Spiritual Man.” ~ Patanjali

#29

“It is not enough to have intuitions; we must act on them; we must live them.” ~ Patanjali

#30

“OM: the symbol of the Three in One, the three worlds in the Soul; the three times, past, present, future, in Eternity; the three Divine Powers, Creation, Preservation, Transformation, in the one Being; the three essences, immortality, omniscience, joy, in the one Spirit. This is the Word, the Symbol, of the Master and Lord, the perfected Spiritual Man.” ~ Patanjali

#31

Patanjali Quote on Meditation Image

“Nothing in all creation is so like God as silence.” ~ Patanjali

#32

“Victory over mind and its modifications can also be gained through complete surrender to God, the inner guide.” ~ Patanjali

#33

“The purpose of life, therefore, is the realizing of that prophecy; the unveiling of the immortal man; the birth of the spiritual from the psychical, whereby we enter our divine inheritance and come to inhabit Eternity. This is, indeed, salvation, the purpose of all true religion, in all times.” ~ Patanjali
