FROM SEX TO SUPERCONSCIOUSNESS….OSHO
In my name there are more than three hundred and fifty books on all kinds of subjects; perhaps I have not left any corner of life untouched. But one book became world-famous, or world-notorious.
It is just a series of lectures on the subject FROM SEX TO SUPERCONSCIOUSNESS. It is very strange, because anybody who reads the book will be surprised … but people believe in gossips; who wants to actually read the book? People believe the journalists. Who wants to go into anything to find out the truth?
The book is not for sex; it is the only book in the whole existence against sex, but strange …. The book says that there is a way to go beyond sex, you can transcend sex — that's the meaning of "from sex to superconsciousness." You are at the stage of sex while you should be at the stage of superconsciousness. And the route is simple: sex just has to be part of your religious life, it has to be something sacred.
Sex has to be something not obscene, not pornographic, not condemned, not repressed but immensely respected, because we are born out of it.
It is our very life source.
And to condemn the life source is to condemn everything.
Sex has to be raised higher and higher to its ultimate peak. And that ultimate peak is samadhi, superconsciousness.
But I was condemned all over the world by all the religions for preaching sex. I was amazed. I chuckled. I said to myself, "I am born in a great world, in a great time! I had never thought that the world consisted of so many idiots."
Books have been written against my book; articles in almost every language, in every newspaper, in every magazine have appeared against my book. But the fundamental of their understanding remains the same: that I am teaching sex.
I am teaching transformation of sex.
Out of three hundred and fifty books, that is the only one in which I talk about sex and its transformation. What about the three hundred and forty-nine books in which I have talked about every possible problem of human growth? Nobody bothers about all those books because nobody is concerned with human growth. Everybody is concerned that man should remain retarded.
