Back of the Book
You cannot explain what sweetness is to the man who has never tasted sweets. You can bring all your articulateness, but you cannot explain a simple thing, sweetness. The only way is to offer him some sweets. Thats what the masters have been doing all along. Rather than telling you what sweetness is, they offer it to you to taste. They themselves are offering, their own presence for you to taste it. Osho
Bodhidharma is named as the 26th Patriarch in the line emanating from Gautam Buddha. However, as Osho says, he shows even higher flights than Buddhawho would not accept any female disciplesas his master was the enlightened woman, Pragyatara.
Buddhism had entered china six hundred years earlier, and now Pragyatara instructed Bodhidharma to go there and to pass on Buddhas essential message of enlightenment. The earlier messengers of Buddhas teachings had had a great impact on the people of China, but none had been enlightened. It was now time for the taste of realization, of Awakening, to be passed on.
Osha dissects these three volumes of notes from Bodhiddharmas disciples in detail, pointing out where, and how, the disciples minds have come in to distort the message of this Buddhaan awakened one.
