Prayer is a by-product of theism - OSHO Talks Vol. 6


Theists believe in God, without knowing Him, without any experience; their belief is just a way to escape from doubt, Osho tells us. However, to remain in doubt requires tremendous courage. Not escaping from doubt is one of the fundamental qualities of the seeker and believing is an escape. Covering your doubts will always give you a sense of relief. However, it is a false security because inside you still know that you don't know. According to Osho: Prayer is a by-product of theism. You start with a belief in God, then naturally some kind of relationship between you and God is needed. That is prayer. You start praying to him. Of course there is some motivation, you are asking Him for something through your prayer. Your prayer is not purely a romance.
