Osho on Ramakrishna Paramhansa Sadhanas
There is another episode in Ramakrishna's life.... He did the sadhanas, the
spiritual practices, of all religions. He is the only person in the history
of mankind who tried to attain the truth through paths of all religions.
Ordinarily a person reaches by one path. When you have reached the summit of
the mountain, who bothers about other paths? Do you walk the other trails up
it then? Who cares? -- you have reached. The trail you came on, you came on;
what's the use of walking all the others? But Ramakrishna reached to the
summit of the mountain again and again, then descended.
He climbed by a second path, then by a third path. He is the first person
who practiced the sadhanas of all religions and attained to the same peak
through all religions. Many have talked about synthesis -- Ramakrishna
is the first to create a science of synthesis. Many people have said that
all religions are true, but it has just been talk. Ramakrishna made it a
reality. He gave it the strength of experience, he proved it with his life.
When he was doing Islamic sadhana he became a real Muslim fakir. He forgot
Ramakrishna and began chanting, "Allahoo... Allahoo."
He began listening to the verses of the Koran and lived right on the steps
of the mosque. If he came near a temple he didn't even lift his eyes, let
alone bow in greeting. He had forgotten about Kali. In Bengal there is
a sect, the sakhis.
When Ramakrishna practiced the sadhana of the Sakhi
sect.... The Sakhis believe that God alone is male, everyone else is female
-- Krishna is God, everyone one else is his sakhi, his girlfriend -- so in
the Sakhi tradition men also consider themselves women. But what happened in
Ramakrishna's life had never happened in the life of any follower of the
Sakhi tradition. A man can believe on the surface he is a woman, but he
remains a man inside, he knows that he is a man.
Members of the Sakhi sect take an idol of Krishna to bed with them -- this
is their husband. But what difference does it make? But when
Ramakrishna did this sadhana something unprecedented happened -- scientists
too will be surprised that such a thing happened.... He did the sadhana of
the Sakhis for six months and after three months his breasts started to
swell, his voice changed, he began walking like a woman, and his voice
became sweet like a woman's. His breasts were growing, becoming the breasts
of a woman's; the male structure of his body began to change.
