    Quick Overview

    “…And Nothing Has Ever Happened” is a compilation of talks given during two meditation retreats by Osho’s enlightened disciple Swami Chaitanya Bharti, now affectionately called Gurudev. The talks cover a range of subjects from true love to Divine Pain; from the mysterious functioning of a Master to the inner resistance of a disciple; from the path of meditation to the way of devotion. But the focus remains clearly on leading the reader step-by-step to the Ultimate Truth that – as Ramana Maharshi put it – “nothing has ever happened.”

    The path to reach that goal which Gurudev advocates is of Self-knowledge and Self-remembrance. As He says: “Learn to be, just to Be.” Discover your being and you will realize that you are eternal: You were, you are and you will be.

    “Passivity” is a word which recurs often. Passivity, He explains, is the only way out of our mess because it does not strengthen the “doer” illusion. Other paths give you something to do in order to conquer “negative” emotions. And they work at times – the emotion temporarily subsides. But simultaneously, the “I” which has done the conquering gathers power. And that ego is the deep-rooted source of the “negative” emotion in the first place. Passivity is a fire which allows the emotion to burn itself out and finally burns the “I” behind the emotion.

    Although the subject of the talks is serious, the tone of the book is amazingly light, because Gurudev strongly believes that “seriousness is a disease worse than cancer”. Thanks to His laughing-mantra “Ho Jaaye!” the pages of book echo with laughter and humour, often pointed at Gurudev himself.

    The most heart-warming aspect of the book is that Gurudev presents himself as an equal, as a friend. He does not talk only about highest truths, but also brings Himself down to the level of the listener’s life. The chapter “Are you Ready to Eat Chicken” takes a humorous look at vegetarian conditioning and beliefs in day-to-day life. Here again, although Gurudev may be dissecting earthy matters, He slowly, slowly leads the reader to look up to the stars. This is His greatest gift: He effortlessly fuses the mundane with the magnificent.
