Hyakujo: The Everest of Zen, with Basho’s Haikus

Hyakujo: The Everest of Zen, with Basho’s Haikus with the subtitle: Talks on Zen consists of talks given by Osho in 1988 on the Zen master Hyakujo and many other topics from Krishnamurti and Taoism to Taj Mahal. From the book:

“People have always thought that mind means word, speech, thoughts – but that is not true. They are very close, concurrent, so close that you can get the conception that they are one. But when you get deeper into meditation and leave the world of words and speech, you suddenly find there is an empty mind beyond them which is your real mind. To distinguish it, we call it the empty heart. Either to call it no-mind, real-mind, empty heart… they are all synonymous. But ordinarily, you are so close to thinking, emotions, words, that you cannot conceive there is a sky beyond the clouds,that there is a full moon beyond the clouds. You will have to go beyond the clouds to see the moon.”
