10 Osho’s Commandments To Live By

Published

on

In this article, I’m going to talk about Osho’s commandments to live by. But at the same time, as you know, according to Osho philosophy, it’s always a disease to ask for advice. He liked to say that first, we should use our own mind – give it a chance to get sharper.

There is no need to postpone the search for the answers to your questions. All of postponement is inconvenient. A person of integration does not put off the most important thing in his life – self-knowledge. Osho liked to say: “come in, the doors are open!”.

In 1970, one correspondent asked Osho to give his 10 commandments. He replied: “You ask for my ten commandments. This is a difficult task because I am against any commandments”. And then “for fun” he gave his list. So here they are Osho’s commandments to live by.

10 Osho’s Commandments

1. Never obey anyone’s commandment unless it is coming from within you also.

This is one of the most paradoxical Osho’s commandments! Just think about it – “My first commandment – never obey anyone’s commandments”.

According to Osho, life is so vast, so strange, so mysterious, it cannot be reduced to a rule or commandment. All the commands are too small; they cannot contain life and vital energies. Therefore, the first commandment is that there are no commandments is quite significant.

A true man does not live by rules or commandments. It’s a pseudohalogen. The real man just lives.

Yes, if you ask a genuine person, he can tell you certain rules, but they are not rules that he follows himself. He just found them on the way of life, like collecting seashells on the beach. He didn’t plan to collect seashells, he was going to enjoy the early morning, fresh air, sun, sea, sand. And by the way, he found these seashells.

All the rules are collected by people who do not follow them. Because the people who follow commandments and rules have committed suicide a long time ago.

Anyone who lives by the rule destroys himself, poisons himself, because this rule is found by someone, not you, somewhere where you will never be, in some time, in some space, which is not your time and not your space. It is very dangerous to follow the rules. You will distract your life from its center.

2. There is no God other than life itself.

Friedrich Nietzsche says: “God is dead”. That’s not right, because God has never existed. Life is existence. It always has been existed, always will be. That’s why we all should allow ourselves to be obsessed with life.

The so-called religions of the past have always told us the exact opposite. They say, “Deny.” And Osho says, “Celebrate!” The religions say that life is something untrue, and illusory. They created an abstract idea of God, which is nothing but a projection of their own minds. And they worship that projection. What exists is denied for the sake of what is merely an abstraction of the mind. God is only the word, but they say that God is real.

Reality is life. You feel it in your heartbeat, it pulsates in your blood, it is everywhere – in flowers, rivers, stars. And religions say it’s all Maya, an illusion. They say it’s made of the same stuff as dreams. And they create God – and each of them, of course, creates God in his own imagination. That’s why there are thousands of gods.

3. Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.

This is the main feature of the truth – you have to find it by yourself.

Osho liked to say that everyone should discover his own truth. We can learn from Buddha with the hope and confidence that one day we will find our own truth.

But don’t try to borrow somebody else’s truth. We can only borrow words. But words are meaningless. The true meaning and understanding come only from the experience.

4. Love is prayer.

Osho didn’t say “pray” because according to his belief there is no God to pray to. He said that that prayer makes people religious. It gives false religiosity. That’s why he suggested replacing the word “prayer” with the word ” love”.

Osho didn’t mean love for some invisible God. He meant love to all human beings, animals, trees, oceans, mountains. He said we should spread our wings of love as wide as we can.

Love doesn’t need a system of faith. Even atheists, communists, and materialists are capable of love.

Love is something that is inherent to you, not something imposed from the outside.

5. To become nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the means, the goal, and attainment.

Everyone wants to be extraordinary, this is very common. But to be ordinary and just relax in this ordinary existence is the highest extraordinary quality.

The one who perceives his ordinariness without any discontent and grumbling but with joy – only such a person cannot destroy his bliss. No one will steal it, no one will take it.

6. Life is now and here.

Never think about the past, as you are wasting the present, which is the only real thing in your hands. And never think about the future, because no one knows what tomorrow will be, how tomorrow will be, how everything will turn out, where you will land – you can not imagine it.

Stay in the moment, truly in the moment, the here and now as if there was never yesterday and tomorrow will never come – only then can you be completely here and now.

And this fullness of being in the present connects you with existence, because existence does not know the past, does not know the future. It’s always here and now.

When you’re all here, yesterday doesn’t pull you back, tomorrow doesn’t pull you somewhere else, you’re completely relaxed.

7. Live wakefully.

According to Osho to live awakened means to realize that you are outside the mind that determines you. When you’re experiencing the state of “beyond the mind” you are able to clearly see the mind as an object of perception. This does not mean that your mind disappears. It just means that you do not live in your mind anymore. And it is at this stage you start watching and controlling your mind. The mind is still present, but you are not its prisoner anymore.

At this stage, it is important to allow your observation to gain full strength through meditation. This is where the “emptying of consciousness” should take place. If you are not conscious, it is very easy to slip back into the clutches of the mind. But it is also possible to see the horizon. We know what it takes to make it happen. No one can make “this” happen, but it is necessary to create an opportunity for “this” to happen.

8. Do not swim – float.

Osho said that the river of life flows and we should flow with it. We don’t need to swim; we just need to let the river guide us. We shouldn’t fight it, we shouldn’t waste our energy fighting it. We just should relax and move with the flow.

If we can move with the flow without any conflicts, without looking back to our part, then suddenly we will start to realize that we are not a river. We will feel that the river is around us, but we are not the river.

When we’re fighting with the river of life we lose ourself. Don’t fight! There is no need for this because by fighting you can not enter the change. So don’t be afraid. Live in peace. Don’t be afraid, because when you’re afraid the world cannot enter you. Live it!

9. Die each moment so that you can be new each moment.

According to Osho, we should start dying every moment for our past. We should cleanse ourselves of the past every moment. If we learn how to die for the known then the unknown becomes available to us. Dying and allowing ourselves to be reborn in every moment, we can live life and we can live death.

Osho said that this is the true spirituality: to live death to the fullest and to live life to the fullest. He said we should live life and death so fervently, that we’ll have nothing left as not experienced behind, even death. If we can live life and death totally, then we will go beyond.

In this tremendous passion and the fullness of life and death, we will go beyond duality and will come to One. Being One is the real truth. You can call it God, you can call it life, you can call it truth, Samadhi, ecstasy, or whatever you want to.

10. Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see.

When you start searching, you take the wrong starting point. In the search itself, you start from the fact that you don’t have what you’re searching for — that’s where the mistake is. You have to accept that you already have what you’re searching for. Starting to look for something, you immediately become neurotic, because you can not find anything — there is no place to look for because everything is already found.

You are like a man who’s looking for glasses while they are already on his eyes, on his nose: he’s looking through the glasses and looking for them! He will never find them unless he remembers that the search is in vain unless he remembers: “If I see something, then the glasses are already in front of my eyes; how else would I see?”

There is a hidden truth in everything we see. A seeker is always sought — that is the problem, the only problem that human beings are trying  to endlessly solve and which is increasingly confounding them. Rather than seeking, an individual would do better to simply become still and try to develop more awareness. Then the answers to their questions simply reveal themselves through effortless observation as opposed to tireless searching.

Should We Follow Osho’s Commandments?

At the end of this article about 10 Osho’s commandments, I want to remind you about 2 very important things.

First of all, Osho gave this list for fun.

Secondary, out of Osho’s 10 commandments the first one is the most important one – “never obey anyone’s commandment unless it is coming from within you also”. In other words, the most important commandment is there are no commandments!

Remember to listen to your heart and voice within when you decide if you want to follow Osho’s commandments!

Or: “As this tree blooms so do my beauty and youth bloom!”. Feel how the tree is charging you with vital energy and supporting you. Visualize that you and the tree are one and feel the energy exchange between you and the tree.

Technique #2

After you hanged those coins, every time you look at that plant or tree repeat that statement again and again: “As this tree/plant grows so do my finances grow!”. The trick is to constantly be interacting with the tree/plant, talking to it, and giving it the task – to grow your money.

How To Manifest With The Power Of The Water Element

Technique #1

drinking pure water image

Water is a blueprint for our reality. Emotional energies and vibrations can change the physical structure of water.

Water has the ability to remember the information. This property is used for programming water with affirmations, intentions, or mantras. Water remembers the information coded, gets into the human body, and begins working according to a given program – brings this information to body cells.

For programming water, take a glass of water, place it between your palms, and say positive affirmations, positive words, mantras or your intentions. For example, it can be just positive words, such as: “Happiness! Abundance! Love!”. Or you can charge your water with money affirmations.

And then drink this water visualizing how it’s filling every cell of your body with this positive information. After drinking it, close your eyes and feel how the structure of your energy body is improving and the reality you live in manifests itself in accordance with the affirmations you just stated.

Technique #2

washing face image

This is a beauty technique that was very popular during ancient times. However, nowadays only a few people still use it. It’s based on water programming. But for beauty purposes, we are going to use water for washing our faces.

Place a bowl of water between your palms and say positive beauty affirmations, such as: “I am beautiful! I am attractive! I am young!” as many times as you want (the more the better). Or you can say positive beauty words, such as: “Beauty! Youth! Love! Joy! Happiness!“. And then wash your face with this water!

Technique #3

cold shower image

This technique became my daily ritual! It is very simple! You just need to make it your habit.

Every time you take a shower or bath or swim in the pool or ocean, in other words, every time you bathe your body in water, say positive affirmations! You can do it even mentally if you don’t want somebody to hear you. Visualize how water is receiving information from you and charges your body with it. Alternatively, you can turn on music with mantras or prayers while you’re taking a shower.

Every time that you need help or assistance of the Universe you can simply ring the metal bell in the Northwest room of your house or in the Northwest corner of your office. While you’re ringing the bell ask the Universe for help. The sound of the metal bell attracts assistance and help from Heaven. Be sure that help will come very soon.

How To Manifest With The Productive Cycle

The productive cycle of the Five elements: Fire produces Earth, Earth produces Metal, Metal produces Water, Water produces Wood, and Wood produces Fire.

Productive cycle of the 5 elements image

It is believed that the productive cycle of the 5 elements will naturally produce harmony and well being. Therefore this cycle is used by Feng Shui masters for manifesting the desired life.

Let me share with you how to manifest with the productive cycle of the 5 elements.

Productive Cycle Ritual

First of all, you need to write down your desire/wish/intention. What do you want to manifest?

The second step is to determine which sector of the Bagua it belongs to. If you don’t know what Bagua is and how to determine the sectors, make sure to read my articles: “Feng Shui Bagua: 8 Aspirations” and “The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?“.

For example, you want to start your own business. In this case, your intention belongs to the Career sector which corresponds to the North sector. That’s where the ritual will have to take place – the North sector of your house.

Now you need to take the symbols of the five elements, for example:

  • for the Wood element take a piece of wood;
  • the Water element – a glass of water;
  • the Metal element – Chinese coins;
  • the Fire element – a candle;
  • for the Earth element take a crystal.

Now arrange all the symbols of the five elements according to the Productive Cycle (Water-Wood-Fire-Earth-Metal).

Before you start, be sure to light a candle to activate the energy of the Fire element. After you have done all this, sit comfortably next to the Cycle of the Five elements you created.

Now repeat aloud or mentally the intention/desire/wish you wrote down. Do not be surprised if you feel a strong heat coming from the Cycle. Or you may feel an unfamiliar shiver in your body.

Visualize that your intention/desire/wish came true. Meditate on it for 10-15 minutes.

When you finish your meditation, say gratitude to the Universe, to the Five elements, and to yourself. Extinguish the candle.

Feng Shui masters do not recommend immediately removing the Cycle after the ritual. It is recommended to leave it for at least a week in the sector where the ritual was performed. Also, make sure to change the water daily.

The Bottom Line

When you start living in harmony with the five elements you will see that your life becomes more balanced and satisfying. Therefore, it is very beneficial to connect with all five elements on a daily basis. Start with activating the energy of the five elements in your house. And then – choose the techniques you like the most. Now that you know how to manifest with the power of the five elements you can become the Creator of your reality and your life!

#1

Self-Love Quote Image

“Find the love you seek, by first finding the love within yourself. Learn to rest in that place within you that is your true home.”
– Sri Ravi Shankar

#2

Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.”
– Margo Anand

#3

“I love myself for I am a beloved child of the universe and the universe lovingly takes care of me now.”
Louise Hay

#4

“To accept ourselves as we are means to value our imperfections as much as our perfections.”
– Sandra Bierig

#5

“My willingness to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another.”
– Shakti Gawain

#6

“A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success.”
– Joyce Brothers

#7

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

#8

“If we can’t love ourselves, we can’t love anyone. If we can’t love the closest and dearest person in the world – ourselves – how can we love someone else? It can be passion, affection, but not love. Love always comes from the inside, and only when it overflows us, it pours out to the outside.”
– Katya Ki

#9

“If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.”
– Barbara De Angelis

#10

self-compassion quote image

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
– Jack Kornfield

#11

“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self-love deficit.”
– Earth Kitt

#12

“It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.”
– Sidney J. Harris

#13

“Self-love is the source of all other loves.”
– Pierre Corneille

#14

“Self respect, self-worth, and self-love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value.”
– Rob Liano

#15

“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.”
– Oscar Wilde

#16

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”
– Bob Moawad

#17

“Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it. Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.”
– Thaddeus Golas

#18

“Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.”
– Malcolm S. Forbes

#19

“Accept what you don’t like about yourself. Realize that what you call “imperfections” are actually your unique qualities that fall out of the scope of the “standard.” We have been taught since our childhood to be like everyone else. And everything that distinguished us from others was condemned. But it shouldn’t be that way! We must learn to be ourselves without any limitations. We need to learn to perceive our “imperfections” as unique manifestations of ourselves.”
– Katya Ki

#20

Maya Angelou Saying About Self-Love Image

“You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.”
Maya Angelou

#21

“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs, and habits – anything that kept me small. My judgment called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.”
– Kim McMillen

#22

“When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier.”
– Diane Von Furstenberg

#23

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

#24

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first, I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!”
– Charlie Chaplin

#25

“All I can do is be me, whoever that is.”
– Bob Dylan

#26

“Realize that no one or nothing can make you whole. You’re already self-sufficient! You need to learn to love yourself regardless of whether someone else loves you or not. Your happiness cannot be dependent on your relationships.”
– Katya Ki

#27

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
– Shannon L. Alder

#28

“I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.”
– Johnny Depp

#29

Rupi Kaur Quote Image

“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.”
– Rupi Kaur

#30

“It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.”
– W.C. Fields

#31

“If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.”
– Charles Bukowski

#32

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
– Lucille Ball

#33

“Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself – what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.”
– Warsan Shire

#34

“The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.”
– Robert Hand

#35

“Many people believe that certain achievements in life will help them love themselves more. But this is far from reality! Neither a career, nor an expensive car, nor a luxurious mansion on the beach, nor designer clothes, will make you love yourself. All this luxury can only enhance your ego, but self-love will never depend on such things. And it is very important to understand this! You don’t need a reason to love yourself. True love is always born for no reason. We start to love ourselves just like that, here and now, just the way we are.”
– Katya Ki

#36

“The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself.”
– Steve Maraboli

#37

“When nobody celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”
– Joel Osteen

#38

“I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.”
– Madonna

#39

Louise Hay On Criticizing Yourself Image

“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”
– Louise Hay

#40

“I am so beautiful, sometimes people weep when they see me. And it has nothing to do with what I look like really, it is just that I gave myself the power to say that I am beautiful, and if I could do that, maybe there is hope for them too. And the great divide between the beautiful and the ugly will cease to be. Because we are all what we choose.”
– Margaret Cho

#41

“It’s not your job to like me…it’s MINE!”
– Byron Katie

#42

“People who love themselves come across as very loving, generous and kind; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness.”
– Sanaya Roman

#43

“Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”
– Veronica A. Shoffstall

#44

“Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.”
– Shannon L. Alder

#45

“Stop putting people on the pedestal. Stop thinking that someone might be better than you are or worse. Learn not to compare yourself to other people. If you accept and love your uniqueness (which, as I have already said, consists of those qualities that society calls “imperfections”), then you realize that any comparison is inappropriate! You are who you are. No one is better or worse than you. Destroy all the pedestals that you have created. And understand that all people are equal. Don’t idealize anyone. We’re all just humans – nobody is perfect! Besides that the ideal is always dead, there is no movement, there is no need for development. So throw away all those thoughts about reaching this illusional ideal level of yourself. Stop this race to perfection! It doesn’t make any sense!”
– Katya Ki

#46

“To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.”
– Alan Cohen

#47

“One of the best guides to how to be self-loving is to give ourselves the love we are often dreaming about receiving from others. There was a time when I felt lousy about my over-forty body, saw myself as too fat, too this, or too that. Yet I fantasized about finding a lover who would give me the gift of being loved as I am. It is silly, isn’t it, that I would dream of someone else offering to me the acceptance and affirmation I was withholding from myself. This was a moment when the maxim “You can never love anybody if you are unable to love yourself” made clear sense. And I add, “Do not expect to receive the love from someone else you do not give yourself.”
– Bell Hooks

#48

“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”
Andrew Matthews

#49

Love Yourself Quotes Image

“Celebrate who you are in your deepest heart. Love yourself and the world will love you.”
– Amy Leigh Mercree

#50

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
– Stacey Charter

#51

“We can’t be so desperate for love that we forget where we can always find it within.”
– Alexandra Elle

#52

“I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?”
– Shailene Woodley

#53

“I come across too much material on “how to make a man want you”, “how to make a man commit”, “how to make a man finally pop the question”, “how to make a man take you seriously”, “how to get into a man’s emotions.” And I laugh. My dear fellow women, enough! Do not busy yourself with such things! Instead, fall in love with yourself!”
– C. JoyBell C.

#54

“Self-love can’t exist without self-respect. Learn to respect yourself, your time and space! Free your space from negative people, as well as from those people with who you are uncomfortable with or who are not interesting for you to communicate with. Free yourself from those people who steal your energy. Stop talking to people who only talk about themselves, but are never interested in you. Change your environment! As soon as you free yourself from people you don’t resonate with, you will attract a new environment into your life. From now on surround yourself only with people you enjoy interacting with.”
– Katya Ki

#55

“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It is sanity.”
– Katrina Mayer

#56

“If you don’t love yourself, you won’t be happy with yourself. If you can’t love yourself, you can’t love anyone else. You can’t give the love you do not have. You can’t make anyone love you without loving yourself first.”
– Kemi Sogunle

#57

“Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It’s about accepting all of yourself.”
– Tyra Banks

#58

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
– Lucille Ball

#59

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.”
– Louise Hay

#60

fall in love with yourself image

“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.”
– Robert Morely

#61

“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.”
– Diane Von Furstenberg

#62

“Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.”
– Les Brown

#63

“Every time you step over yourself in order to not offend someone, you show a deep disrespect for yourself and the absence of self-love.”
– Katya Ki

#64

“Self-love is the elixir of an immortal heart.”
– Amy Leigh Mercree

#65

The journey isn’t about becoming a different person. It’s about loving who you are right now.
– Suzanne Heyn

#66

There is nothing rarer, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the essence of beauty.
– Steve Maraboli

#67

Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.
– Lisa Hayes

#68

In a society that profits from your self-doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act.
– Caroline Cardwell

#69

Be the love you never received.
– Rune Lazuli

#70

The highest form of intelligence is to view yourself without judgment.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
