SWASTHYA means getting rooted in the self….OSHO
The Sanskrit word for health is SWASTHYA; it means becoming centered.
It means coming to one's own self, realizing one's own self. SVA means self;
SWASTHYA means getting rooted in the self.
'Medicine' and 'meditation' come from the same root.
It is medicinal.
When somebody is ill we give him medicine.
Do you think medicine gives him health?
Then you are wrong.
Medicine simply destroys his illness.
No medicine has yet been invented which can give you health.
Health is beyond medicine, and beyond meditation too.
The medicine simply destroys the disease.
Once the disease is destroyed,
once the thorn has been taken out, your inner health starts blooming again.
