Gibberish: The WordY FrYdaY NerdY!


There was a sufi master Jabbar. He had a unique way of teaching. Whenever any of his pupils used to visit him with descriptions of divine visions and trances, he started talking nonsense with a vehement speed and kept continuously talking until all his pupils got bored and all their pride in visions and trances dropped out.

A profound silence used to follow his gibberish as it used to force out the chattering monkey minds of pupils. Jabbar was a mysterious person and never explicitly talked about his methods but they were uniquely effective and they did transform his pupils. His indirect message was that all your talk about visions, trances and spiritual experiences is rubbish. It’s gratification of ego which always wants to accomplish something. The effort is always ego’s effort. Transcendence of ego happens when all effort drops. But effort can’t drop until everything has been tried. Gibberish exhausted the minds of pupils and made them silent, peaceful and blissful. Whether it was a transmission of spiritual power along with the nonsensical words of Jabbar, whether this story is true or fictional; I honestly don’t know. But I am fond of the idea behind this word. I heard this story in one of the spiritual talks by Osho. I love it.

    1. Hahaha LOL πŸ˜€

      You hold a grudge and keep saying in your head ( Look how stupid he is πŸ˜› ) πŸ˜›

      It was not meant in that sense. It meant that your mind does drop completely LOL πŸ˜€

      Have a wonderful week ahead.

  1. Yes, Anand, I have read this account of Jabbar and his gibberish. I was intrigued too. And I seriously want to practice ‘no effort’.
    When/where did you hear this spiritual talk by Osho? I was delighted to read this also because I am reading Osho’s discourses in book form. Reading him is like opening the mind to many, many transformational ideas.
