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."
