Osho Story-To Attain The Absolute

To attain the absolute is to attain all. A Sufi story as narrated by Osho, conveys the truth.

Once a Sufi mystic, who was stark naked, made his way to the police station, with a train of people following him.

The Sufi mystic filed a complaint with the policeman that he was robbed of his blanket, his cushion, his umbrella, his clothes, his pillow and bed.

The policeman patiently made a list of the lost objects, when a man came in and hurled a blanket on the mystic. This is the only thing that he possessed and that I robbed from him, while he is complaining of being robbed of a lot other things.

The policeman asked for an explanation.

The Sufi mystic said, “Yes my blanket may be all that I have, but it has served me as a bed, a cushion, an umbrella, a clothing etc at different times. There is absolute truth in whatever I have said!"

Osho advices that the story ought to be taken seriously. He states the truth, that to attain the absolute is to attain all. A rupee is contained in a crore rupees!
