compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion

after centuries of development in China and with that coming of Buddhism,

Japan was introduced to a concept of systems, routines and regulations.

Buddhism channelled silent and spontaneous interaction with spirits

into an organised programme of ritual observance, and explained the

mysteries of life by the Law of Cause and Effect.

The new theology, with 
its inexorable focus on the after-life, must have both

disturbed and inspired followers of Shinto, who suddenly found previously

vague sentiments now clearly articulated and vigorously systemised. The Aryan

mind of India had been absorbed in metaphysical subtleties for centuries and

had learned to analyse phenomena and control consciousness even before the

birth of Gautama (567-488 BC), the historical Buddha.


After attaining total enlightenment 
the Buddha explained that existence

IS a continuing series of transformations and that salvation from suffering

and death lies in detachment from desires and [IT] was Bhagwan Shree Rajnesh

otherwise known as OSHO who so poignantly proposed that...

"ONLY once in the whole history of human consciousness

 has a thing like ZEN come into being. IT IS very rare." 
                                                                                             

ZEN is TAO and NOT ZEN without TAO

ZEN
is BUDDHA and NOT ZEN without
BUDDHA

TAO
& BUDDHA are independent & of ZEN

ZEN
is dependent on TAO & BUDDHA as ONE
