OSHO: Crimes Against Humanity, Nature, Environment and Ecology …


silence shared in words presents Crimes Against Humanity Nature, Environment, and Ecology Excerpt from One Seed Makes the Whole Earth Green #3 Once, a monk asked fuketsu, “what is the buddha?” Fuketsu replied, “the bamboo whips of mount jorin.” Another monk then asked, “what is the buddha?” Fuketsu answered, “what is not the buddha?” A third monk said to fuketsu, “the western patriarch came bringing his message; i ask you to tell me it point-blank!” At this, fuketsu replied, “when one dog barks at nothing, a thousand monkeys really show their teeth.” On another occasion a monk asked, “what is the meaning of daruma’s coming from the west?” Fuketsu said, “we know all the windings of the mountain stream, but not the mountain itself.” Friends, today I am going to talk first about religion and the crime that it has committed against humanity, nature, environment, ecology. Religion’s crimes are many, innumerable, but the worst crime is that it has placed man at the center of existence. It has given the idea to the whole of humanity that the whole existence is for your use: you are God’s greatest creation. A man-oriented vision of existence is bound to create catastrophes in nature, it is bound to destroy the ecological balance, it is bound to give man the strange idea of an ego. The Bible says God created man in his own image, and man has believed it. Just look at your face in the mirror: is it God’s face in the mirror? The truth is that Christianity has been befooling humanity. It is not that God made man in his own image, it is man who has made God in his own image.
