Famous Osho Quotes: An Indian Mystic, Guru and Spiritual Leader

Posted in Spiritual Giants by Trupti Mehta

Today we will share some wonderful Osho Quotes with you. These quotes are designed to remind us of the deeper truths of life, as well as inspire and uplift you.

A controversial figure to say the least, Osho – also known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh – was an Indian mystic, guru and spiritual leader with an international following. He was permissive on sex, kicked out of the USA on immigration charges after run-ins with the locals when he tried to establish an ashram in Oregon, and known for pulling no punches when it came to re-interpreting spiritual texts. He even had a go at Ghandi a few times…

Since his death in 1990, he’s only gained in infamy – his Poona-based ashram is still running, now named Osho’s International Meditation Resort. He may be the only spiritual leader to commission a set of tarot cards – Osho Cards – and create an extra card called The Master depicting himself.

One thing to always keen in mind though is that the teachings are much more important than the teacher.  So forget the teacher if you have to, but always remember the teachings.

Osho Quote 1

Just allow life to take you wheresoever it leads you and don’t be afraid. Fear is the only thing one should be afraid of, nothing else. Move! Be courageous and daring. - Osho

Osho Quote 2

A man of realization knows there is no death. Death is a fiction, you have never died. Yes, you have changed your form many times. You have changed your house many times, many times. But you have never died. Have you ever seen yourself dying? It is always somebody else who dies. - Osho

Osho Quote 3

Don’t be attached to the things of the world, and don’t be attached to the things of the other world, because things are things. It makes no difference whether they are of this world or the other world – attachment is the problem.
- Osho

Osho Quote 4

Wisdom is only possible in the absence of the ego. Ego is the hiding place of all kinds of ignorance. It is a shelter for ignorance. It prevents you from bringing light into your being. It is afraid of the light because the moment light comes it will have to go, it will have to leave. - Osho

Osho Quote 5

If you live with alertness, you live rightly.
If you live in imitation, you live wrongly.
To me there is only one sin:
And that is not to be yourself.
And to me there is only one virtue:
And that is to know yourself. – Osho
