My own vision is that the coming age will be the age of the woman. Man has tried for five thousand years and has failed. Now a chance has to be given to the woman. Now she should be given the reins of all the powers. She should be given an opportunity to bring her feminine energies to function, to work. Man has utterly failed. In three thousand years, five thousand wars; this is man’s record.
The feminist movement started trying to imitate men so that women could be equal to men. This is both psychologically and spiritually wrong. A woman has different qualities to develop. She is not just to be a carbon copy of man; she has to be her original self. Therefore, I say, they need equal opportunity to be different and to be their own selves. And the further away woman and man are from each other, the better is the possibility of their becoming complementary in a harmonious, loving relationship.
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh is now known simply as Osho.
Osho has explained that His name is derived from William James’ word ‘oceanic’ which means dissolving into the ocean. Oceanic describes the experience, He says, but what about the experiencer? For that we use the word ‘Osho’ Later he came to find out that ‘Osho’ has also been used historically in the Far East meaning “The Blessed One, on Whom the Sky Showers Flowers.”
Osho is an Enlightened Master of our time. All the words printed here are spoken works, spontaneously addressed to an audience for thousands of seekers from around the world.
