2 Views of Sex Spirituality Link + Osho
A Hindu friend — who also admires philosophies of the controversial teacher of Tantra Osho, formerly known as Rajneesh — asked me recently exactly what I saw as the connection between sex and spiritual experience.
Pleased to have a succinct answer (my sound byte) to that question, I said that I see both as a way to break out of the narrow confines of one’s self.
His view? That in spiritual experience and at climax, the mind stops its thinking. It drops away.
Now I’m asking myself are these the same thing? Or are both metaphors for something else?
What do you think?
“…Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha” – capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha.”
