Who are Christians?
Osho speaks about the qualities of real Christian In his book ‘Sufis: the people of the path’, chapter #3 The Royal way. I quote here from that book
“How can you be a Christian if you have not contacted Christ? The so-called priest in the church cannot make you a Christian. Only when you partake of Christ do you become a Christian.
The ordinary priest himself is not a Christian – what to say about the ordinary man? Even the Vatican pope is not a Christian. He cannot be – because to be a Christian does not mean to belong to a church, it means to enter into Christ. Jesus is not the only Christ.
Buddha is also a Christ, so is Mohammad, so is Junaid, so is Kabir and so is Nanak. Christ is a state just as Buddha is a state. It is the same thing: it is the same state. These two names indicates same state.
Jain as call it the state of Jina, the conqueror – because they follow the path of the will.
Buddhists call it the state of Buddha. The state of awakening, awareness, witnessing. They follow the fourth path.
Christ is a state, the ultimate state – when you are no longer a man but you become God. When you transcend humanity, when you surpass humanity.
But you can become a Christian only if you partake of a Christ – otherwise your Christianity will be false and your false Christianity will prevent you from making contact with any living Christ.
But people come (here in my commune) with their minds. It can be understood, it can be forgiven, but forgiving does not mean that you have to cling to it. It has to be dropped.
Now this young man can become Christian for the first time – if he enters me and allows me to enter him. For the first time he has come around a Christ-Consciousness, but he is afraid. He is afraid because he is a Christian and naturally he cannot think of me as Christ because he has an idea of Christ. If he sees me crucified only then will he believe – but then it will be too late.“
As you grow, your seed of awareness needed to be grown into a tree to become a real Christian.
I have got created with the help of a animation creator a video as a tribute to Jesus Christ.
Same is the case with real Indian or follower of eternal religion as described by Osho in one of my post on blog.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.
Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
