Sufi Path of Love - Fragrant and Fresh | Osho

Sufis tend to remain hidden in a mysterious world, revealing themselves only to chosen seekers of truth - who are receptive and devoted. This has been their way for thousands of years. They pray to God in the middle of night, in its deep silence when the world sleeps, as they don't want to make an exhibition of their prayer.

Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita: "The meditator meditates alone in the deep night when everybody in the world is sleeping". And Sufis do the same.

The story of Sufi Hakim Sanai, a Persian court poet, begins like a political thriller. He's moving with the Sultan of Persia and his military forces on an expedition to conquer India. But as they pass a certain walled garden they come across a drunken singer, who is really a great Sufi mystic, an enlightened man named Lai-Kur.

Osho says: Not much is known about Lai-Kur as people like him don't leave many footprints behind them. Except for this story, nothing has survived. But Lai-Kur continues to live in Sufi memory. Lai-Kur lived on the Everest of consciousness, way above the clouds.

Only those who were fortunate enough and courageous enough to climb the mountain could comprehend his words. To the common masses he was a madman. To knowers, he was just a vehicle of God, and all that was coming through him was pure truth.

Sufis remain in the world, they don't escape from it - but deliberately they create a certain milieu around them, so that people stop coming to them and they are left alone.

Hakim Sanai was another such Sufi. His sayings are compiled in the Hadiqa, described by Osho as the essential fragrance of the path of love. Hakim Sanai has been able to catch the very soul of Sufism. Such books are not written, they are born; they come from the beyond, a gift. Their birth is as mysterious as that of a baby, a bird or a rose flower.

Osho says: Hakim Sanai, this name is as sweet to me as honey, as sweet as nectar. He is unique in the world of Sufism. No other Sufi has been able to reach to such heights of expression and such depths of penetration. Hakim Sanai's poem reveals the profundity of his mystic thought:

We tried reasoning our way to Him,
It didn't work;
But the moment we gave up,
No obstacle remained.

He introduced Himself to us
Out of grace.
how else could we have known Him?

Reason took us as far as the door;
But it was His presence that let us in.

But how will you ever know Him,
As long as you are unable
To know yourself?

Once one is one,
No more, no less:
Error begins with duality.

Osho explains: Reason is not the only door in your Being, there are deeper doors in your being. Can't you feel the beat of the heart? When you look at a lotus flower and you feel the beauty, is it reason? Can reason prove that the flower is beautiful? Reason has not even been able to define what beauty is.

For the rational mind there is no beauty. But you know that beauty exists, and when you see it you are overwhelmed by it. The rational mind says there is no beauty, this is just an illusion, a projection, a dream.

Beauty exists. But reason has no way to approach it, it is felt from the heart. Love exists: that too is not through reason, that too is felt from the heart. When you fall in love can you justify it rationally? Can you say what love is? Nobody has yet been able to.

God is all these experiences together: the experience of beauty, the experience of good, the experience of love, the experience of truth. All these experiences happen through the heart. The totality of these experiences is called God.
