oshobob The Living Workshop
monk, Muzhou, is reported to have
said, "The world is the same, but nothing is the
same because the mind changes. Everything
remains the same, but nothing is the same
because I am not the same..."
The Book of Secrets, Vol. 1, ch. 35
|Note: In his original
Osho used the Japanese
pronunciations of the Chinese names
used in these stories, to a large extent.
In his books the names were
romanized using Japanese romaji. In
the instances where Osho used the
original Chinese names, they were
romanized in the books using the old
Wade-Giles system, now seen very
infrequently in world wide usage.
The stories shown on this website will
attempt to revert to the more accurate
original Chinese identification, using
modern Chinese pinyin romanization, if
the people and places are Chinese. If
they are Japanese, then Japanese
romaji will be retained.
