That which is never lost cannot be found, and to search for it is absurd. But the moment this absurdity is understood all seeking stops by itself and that which is never lost is found! That is why I say: Seek and you will not find, because the very seeking is the barrier. The search itself is the hindrance because it creates the seeker, the ego, the illusion that "I am." And I am not. Do not seek and you will find it: the I-am-not-ness. This nothingness is the gate. The Gateless gate. Riko once asked Nansen to explain to him the old problem of the goose in the bottle. If a man puts a gosling into the bottle, he said, and feeds the gosling through the bottle's neck until it grows and grows and becomes a goose -- and then there is simply no more room inside the bottle, how can the man get it out without killing the goose or breaking the bottle? RIKO! shouted Nansen, and gave a great clap with his hands. Yes master! said Riko with a start. See! said Nansen. The goose is out! Osho

Book Description Osho International, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. There is a famous Zen story about a disciple, Riko, who once asked his master Nansen to explain to him the old Zen koan of the goose in the bottle. Namely, if a man puts a gosling into a bottle, and feeds the gosling through the bottle s neck until it grows and becomes a goose -- and then there is simply no more room inside the bottle -- how can the man get it out without killing the goose or breaking the bottle? In response, Nansen shouts RIKO! and gives a great clap with his hands. Startled, Riko replies, Yes master! And Nansen says, See! The goose is out! In this Zen-flavored series of responses to questions, the contemporary mystic Osho cuts through the mad complexity of the contemporary human mind and its self-created problems with humor, compassion, and even an occasional shout and clap of his hands. The goose in the questioner s bottle may be a philosophical problem or an existential dilemma, a relationship drama or an emotional crisis -- in each case, Osho s unique and transformational response sets the goose free, allowing us to rediscover the simple and innocent clarity each of us brings with us when we.
