“My mission, if there is any, should be, from now on, to debunk every statement I have made. If you take seriously and try to use or apply what I have said, you will be in danger.” .

“It would be more interesting to learn from children, than try to teach them how to behave, how to live and how to function.” .
“Until you have the courage to blast me, all that I am saying, and all gurus, you will remain a cultist with photographs, rituals, birthday celebrations and the like.” .
“I may sound very cynical, but a cynic is really a realist. Cynicism will help you to have a healthy look at the way things are going on in the world.” .
“The fact is that we don’t want to be free. What is responsible for our problems is the fear of losing what we have and what we know. All these therapies, all these techniques, religious or otherwise, are only perpetuating the agony of man.” .
“Nature is interested in only two things–to survive and to reproduce one like itself. Anything you superimpose on that, all the cultural input, is responsible for the boredom of man.” .
“My interest is not to knock off what others have said [that is too easy], but to knock off what I am saying. More precisely, I am trying to stop what you are making out of what I am saying.” .

“Atmospheric pollution is most harmless when compared to the spiritual and religious pollution that have plagued the world.” .
“The plain fact is that if you don’t have a problem, you create one. If you don’t have a problem you don’t feel that you are living.” .
“You actually have no way of looking at the sunset because you are not separated from the sunset. The moment you separate your self from the sunset, the poet in you comes out.

“The extraordinary intelligence of the biological organism is all that is necessary for good living, but we are all the time interfering with its natural operation through the medium of thought.” .

“The line of demarcation between the mystic and the madcap is very thin. This one–madcap–is a clinical case and the other is on the way.” .
“Inspiration is a meaningless thing. Lost, desperate people create a market for inspiration. All inspired action will eventually destroy you and your kind.” .
“To be yourself is very easy, you don’t have to do a thing. No effort is necessary. You don’t have to exercise your will, you don’t have to do anything to be yourself. But to be something other than what you are, you have to do a lot of things.” .
“A normal person lives in his illusions. A mad cap lives in his hallucinations. A man in the ‘natural state’ has neither of them.” .

“Unless you are free from the desire of all desires, Moksha, liberation, or self-realisation, you will be miserable.” .
“The so called self-realization is the discovery for yourself and by yourself that there is no self to discover. That will be a very shocking thing because it’s going to blast every nerve, every cell, even the cells in the marrow of your bones.” .
“Why should life have any meaning? Why should there be any purpose to living? Living itself is all that is there. Your search for spiritual meaning has made a problem out of living.” .
“Spirituality is the invention of the mind, and the mind is a myth.” .

“All gurus are welfare organizations providing petty experiences to their followers. The guru game is a profitable industry; try and make two million dollars a year any other way.” .
“You are trying to enforce peace through violence. Yoga, meditation, prayers, mantras, are all violent techniques. The living organism is very peaceful; you don’t have to do a thing. The peacefully functioning body doesn’t care one hoot for your ecstasies, beatitudes, or blissful states.” .
“All that is necessary for the survival of this living organism is already there. The tremendous intelligence of the body is no match for all that we have gathered and acquired through our intellect.” .

“Thought can never capture the movement of life, it is much too slow. It is like lightning and thunder. They occur simultaneously, but sound, travelling slower than light, reaches you later, creating the illusion of two separate events.” .
“I think the solution to your real problems is, in any case, not possible for you unless you undergo the sort of biological transformation that has happened to me.” .
“The problem with language is, no matter how we try to express ourselves, we are caught up in the structure of words. There is no point in creating new language, a new lingo, to express anything. There is nothing there to be expressed except to free yourself from the stranglehold of thought.” .
“The profound statements of the great teachers are not any different in the different religions. All I am saying is that looking to alien lands and religions does not mean anything.” .
“What I am trying to point out is simply that your spiritual and religious activities are basically selfish.” .
“All revolutions are nothing but reevaluations of our value systems. You only replace one system with another system.” .
“It is fear that makes you believe that you are living and that you will be dead. What we do not want is the fear to come to an end. That is why we have invented all these new sciences, new talk, therapies, choiceless awareness and various other gimmicks.” .
“Every time a Godman appears on the stage he is adding momentum to all the chaos that already exists, and we are slowly moving in the direction of destroying ourselves.” .
“This body is a perfect piece that has been created by nature. In this assemblage of the species of human beings on this planet one being is endowed with the intelligence of an Einstein, another is endowed with the brawn of a Tyson, and someone else is endowed with the beauty of a Marilyn Monroe. I can’t conceive any possibility of all the three blooming in one individual–brain, brawn and beauty.” .
“Your highly praised inventiveness springs from your thinking, which is essentially a protective mechanism. The mind has invented both religion and dynamite to protect what it regards as its best interests.” .
“Real silence is explosive; it is not the dead state of mind that spiritual seekers think. This is volcanic in its nature; it’s bubbling all the time–the energy, the life–that is its quality.” .
“We think that thoughts are there inside of us. We think that they are self-generated and spontaneous. What is actually there is what I call a thought-sphere. The thought-sphere is the totality of man’s experiences, thoughts, and feelings passed on to us from generation to generation.” .

“Life has to be described in pure and simple physical and physiological terms. It must be demystified and depsychologized.” .
“When you know nothing, you say a lot. When you know something, there is nothing to say.” .
“The human organism is not interested in your wonderful religious ideas–peace, bliss, beatitude or any such thing. Its only interest is survival. What society has placed before us as the goal to reach and attain is the enemy of this living organism.” .
