CHAPTER 1. DIE O YOGI DIE
BRAHMA THE CREATOR SAYS, ”I AM YOUR SERVANT.”WHAT FLOWS DOWN, HE CHANNELS UP,A YOGI BURNS UP HIS SEX.HE RELEASES HIS EMBRACE, SHATTERS ILLUSION:VISHNU THE SUSTAINER WASHES HIS FEET.DIE, O YOGI, DIE! DIE, SWEET IS DYING.DIE THAT DEATH GORAKH DIED AND SAW.The great Hindi poet, Sumitranandan Pant, once asked me: who in the vast sky of Indian religion arethe twelve people, who in my opinion are the brightest shining stars? I gave him this list: Krishna,Patanjali, Buddha, Mahavira, Nagarjuna, Shankara, Gorakh, Kabir, Nanak, Meera, Ramakrishnaand Krishnamurti. Sumitranandan Pant closed his eyes and slipped into thought.....Making a list is not easy , because the Indian sky is filled with so many stars! Who to cut, who toinclude?... Sumitranandan was a lovely man – extremely soft, extremely sweet – feminine. Evenin old age a freshness remained on his face – just as it should remain – he had become more andmore beautiful.I began to read the expressions appearing and disappearing on his face: it was difficult for him too.Some names, which should naturally be included, were not there. Rama’s name was missing! Heopened his eyes and said to me: ”You have excluded Rama!”I said: ”If I am allowed to choose only twelve; many names will have to be cut. So I have chosenthose twelve people who have made some original contribution. Rama has made no originalcontribution, Krishna has. This is why Hindus call Krishna a complete incarnation, but not Rama.”He asked me further, ”Next, could you give me seven names?” Now the question had become moredifficult!I gave him seven names: Krishna, Patanjali, Buddha, Mahavira, Shankara, Gorakh and Kabir.He said: ”The five you have deleted, on what basis did you drop them?”I said: ”Nagarjuna is contained in Buddha. That which was a seed in Buddha, manifested itself inNagarjuna. Nagarjuna can be dropped when it is a question of saving, trees can be dropped, but notseeds, because seeds will again become trees. They will become new trees. When Buddha is born,hundreds of Nagarjunas will soon be born, but no Nagarjuna can give birth to Buddha. Buddha isthe headwater of the Ganges. Nagarjuna is just a place of pilgrimage that appears along the courseof the Ganges. Lovely, but if cutting is needed, then the place of pilgrimage can be dropped, not thesource of the Ganges.Death is Divine 3Osho
