What this Book is About?
The Mustard Seed: The Revolutionary Teachings of Jesus, is a unique book by Osho. This book is based upon Osho’s commentaries on the Gospel of Thomas, which interestingly is not a part of Bible’s new testament.
Osho calls it the most important Gospel and more authentic than the other four Gospels included in the new testament.
In this book, one can come across the fresh and rebellious spirit of Jesus explained majestically by Osho.
Brief Summary of the Book:
This book has been divided into 21 chapters.
Osho says it seems that Thomas has reported Jesus without polluting or contaminating his message. In fact, it is more authentic than the other four gospels included in the Bible’s new testament.
This book proceeds with passages from Gospel of Thomas and Osho’s commentary on the same, which is full of insights and anecdotes by Osho.
Here’s an excerpt from this book:
THE FIRST SAYINGTHE DISCIPLES SAID TO JESUS: TELL US WHAT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE.HE SAID TO THEM: IT IS LIKE A MUSTARD SEED – SMALLER THAN ALL SEEDS, BUT WHENIT FALLS ON THE TILLED EARTH IT PRODUCES A LARGE TREE AND BECOMES SHELTERFOR ALL THE BIRDS OF HEAVEN.Jesus has used this mustard seed very often, for many reasons. One: the mustard seed is thesmallest seed. God is invisible, smaller than the smallest, so how can you indicate him? At theboundary of sight is the mustard seed, the smallest thing…. Beyond that you will not be able tounderstand because beyond is the invisible. The mustard seed is the boundary, the smallest thingin the world of the visible – you can see it but it is very small. If you go beyond you enter the worldof the subtle, that which is smaller than the smallest. This mustard seed exists on the boundary.And this mustard seed is not only the smallest visible thing, it also has a very mysterious quality:when it grows it becomes the biggest of plants. So it is a paradox: the seed is the smallest and theplant is the biggest. God is the invisible and the universe is the most visible; the universe is the tree,the plant, and God is the seed; God is the unmanifest and the universe is the manifest.
