Osho — Great Souls — Experiments on Reincarnation, and the Clarion Call

A friend raised an intriguing question: Can a departed soul enter into another lifeless body? The answer is affirmative, yet such a transition bears no purpose or meaning, for a deceased body was abandoned by the soul due to its unsuitability for habitation. It is a body rendered useless, lacking the point of reentry. Nevertheless, the possibility remains; one soul can enter another body.

Yet, the question of how such an entry is feasible eludes us, as we have yet to understand our current existence within our own bodies. Dwelling on the idea of entering another body appears futile when we have not grasped the mechanics of our present embodiment. The separation of our own bodies from our consciousness is an uncharted realm.

Moreover, there exists no logical rationale for soul transmigration into another body. Nevertheless, from a scientific standpoint, the possibility remains – as bodies are not distinctly “yours” or “mine.” All bodies exist externally. When a soul enters a mother’s womb, it is, in essence, entering a minuscule yet complete body, a body with an intrinsic genetic blueprint. This initial cell in the womb contains the programming for hair color, eye color, physical attributes, and health conditions that will manifest years later.

Human consciousness has been on a decline due to a lack of suitable conditions for superior souls to be born. Opportunities for birth are skewed toward inferior souls, causing a scarcity of suitable opportunities for both very inferior and very superior souls. The imbalance leads to a prevalence of beings with anger, hatred, and violence, creating a discordant environment. This decline stems from the distorted marital system, which lacks genuine love as its foundation. A harmonious, loving union between man and woman is the key to a spiritually rich life and the birth of godlike souls.

The biological disparity between men and women, represented by the difference in chromosomes, contributes to the various attributes seen between the sexes. Women’s harmony and balance in personality account for their beauty, while men’s inherent restlessness and imbalance drive their achievements and progress. Despite these differences, both paths – the householder’s and the renunciate’s – can lead to God. However, the focus has predominantly been on renunciation, neglecting the significance of the householder’s life and the transformative potential it holds.

It is crucial to redefine marital life, elevate it spiritually, and infuse it with love and respect. The act of bringing a new life into the world must be approached with reverence, conscious intention, and a deep understanding of the soul invited. The future of humanity hinges on the type of souls that enter the womb, shaping the quality of the human race.

As for the question of knowing about past lives, it is theoretically possible. Memories, imprinted in the depths of the unconscious mind, are never truly destroyed. Through hypnosis, one can regress to past lives, but this requires first retracing the memory lane of the current life, including the moment of conception. Only then can the doors to the memories of past lives be unlocked.

In conclusion, the focus should not be on entering another body, a prospect overshadowed by the mysteries of our current embodiment. Rather, the emphasis should be on understanding the profound dynamics of our existence within this very body. Such comprehension, combined with a reimagining of marital life and spiritual intent, holds the key to a brighter future for humanity, transcending the confines of individual lives and resonating across generations.

Consider this: nature, in its wisdom, has a purpose in causing us to forget our past lives. The rationale is profound and crucial. The weight of even a month’s worth of memories can overwhelm, not to mention the vast reservoir of past lives. A single day’s memories alone can prove unbearable, and thus, nature’s design allows only as much as the mind can bear. The excess is cast into the darkness, a storage facility for the irrelevant, a mental discard bin.

Picture it as a collective repository, an unconscious vault where memories no longer needed are tucked away. Yet, a reckless entry into this vault, without comprehension, leads to instant madness – the memories are that overpowering.

I once guided a curious lady who sought to explore her past life. I warned her of potential consequences, as unearthing past lives could stir deep turmoil. Her initial nonchalance quickly transformed when she began delving into the depths of her memory. She ran to me, shaken and tearful, pleading to forget what she had remembered.

This process of recalling past lives is attainable through a specific methodology. Mahavira and Buddha, pioneers in this arena, emphasized its importance. They illuminated the path to self-awareness by revisiting previous lives. Anyone daring enough to recollect past lives undergoes a profound transformation. The repetition of familiar actions across countless lifetimes dawns on them, revealing the futility of pursuits.

Uncovering past lives ushers in a realization of repeated mistakes – wealth accumulation, status pursuits, and fruitless desires. The futility of these actions becomes evident, prompting a shift in behavior. The chase after wealth wanes, and attachment to positions evaporates. The futility of endless romantic encounters emerges – man and woman alike recognize the insatiable nature of such pursuits.

Once this recognition occurs, repetition ceases, for the futility becomes self-evident. Buddha and Mahavira delved deep into the realm of past-life memories, fundamentally changing seekers’ trajectories, and remaking them into new individuals.

For the brave souls ready to probe their past lives, I stand prepared. I do not merely speak in theory; I’m willing to lead the way, eager to take anyone as far as they dare. We need enlightened beings now more than ever, capable of dispelling the darkness engulfing humanity.

It’s essential to recognize two opposing experiments conducted in India over the past fifty years. Gandhi’s attempt to enhance individual morality seemed successful at first but ultimately failed, as individuals he thought he had transformed regressed. On the other hand, Aurobindo’s experiment to raise the collective consciousness, though seemingly unsuccessful, followed a promising path.

The golden ages of human consciousness, like that twenty-five hundred years ago, brought forth souls like Buddha, Mahavira, Socrates, and Lao Tzu, lifting the spirits of entire villages. Today, however, there seems to be a scarcity of such luminous souls. The need for enlightened beings to shine light upon others is paramount. Only by raising consciousness and maintaining those elevated states can we inspire others to ascend. The time for enlightenment is now, as darkness pervades and only a few can illuminate the way.

I’m initiating a global revolution, seeking not masses but a select group of bold individuals ready to embrace experimentation. If just a hundred courageous souls in India commit to elevating their consciousness to unprecedented heights, the entire landscape of the nation can transform dramatically within two decades.

At the moment of his passing, Vivekananda lamented, “I implored a hundred to join, yet they never came. Now, I depart disheartened. Had only a hundred answered, I could have reshaped the nation.”

Vivekananda relentlessly beckoned, but the people remained unmoved. My approach will differ – I will traverse every village, locking eyes with each man, determining their true essence. Those who don’t heed the call will be brought forth. If we assemble just a hundred in this manner, I guarantee their souls will rise like Everest, propelling the life energy of the entire nation forward.

For those valiant friends willing to embrace my challenge, to tread an uncharted path with unwavering courage, I assert that this audacity stems from a divine summons deep within them. Without such a call, such bravery is unattainable. As ancient Egypt proclaimed, “He who calls upon God must recognize that God called him long ago, or else the call could not arise within.”

Those who sense the internal beckoning carry an immense responsibility to humanity. The urgent need is for a handful of pioneers to step forth and offer their lives wholeheartedly in pursuit of heightened consciousness. The truths we once held dear are waning, experiences to this point are turning into falsehoods. All attained heights are becoming myths.

A century or two hence, children may doubt the existence of Buddha, Mahavira, and Christ, deeming them as mere fables. In the West, one has already penned a book suggesting Christ never existed, merely an old play misinterpreted as history.

We enact Ramleela due to our belief in Rama’s existence; however, future generations might view it as a lengthy play, casting Rama as its product. As recognition of figures like Rama, Buddha, and Christ diminishes, belief in their existence erodes.

The human mind struggles to accept the existence of those with superior minds, perpetually seeking fault to establish parity. People deny the great souls as their symbols fade. How long can stone idols convince us of Buddha and Mahavira’s existence? How long will The Bible assure us of Christ’s reality? The Bhagavad Gita’s persuasion that Krishna lived will also wane. We require individuals akin to Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Mahavira. If we don’t nurture such giants within the next fifty years, humanity faces a bleak era.

This is an extraordinary challenge for those committed to humanity’s welfare. I’ll traverse towns, issuing this clarion call. Whenever I encounter eyes ablaze with potential, ready to ignite with divine flame, I’m fully prepared to invest my all. I earnestly hope that at the time of my departure, I won’t have to say, “I sought a hundred, but they eluded me.”
