Indian Guru Osho Explains Why The Word ‘F*ck’ Is The Most Versatile And Beautiful One In The English Dictionary

With those literally immortal words, Osho both dictated his epitaph and dispensed with his biography. After previously removing his name from everything, he finally agreed to accept “Osho,” explaining the word is derived from William James’ “oceanic.” Osho initially said, “It is not my name, it is a healing sound.”


Later he also gave “Osho” a meaning, by adding, “Oceanic describes the experience, but what about the experiencer? For that we use the word ‘Osho.’”


He used to be an Indian spiritual leader, teacher, and a mystic. His birth name was Chandra Mohan Jain. He was known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh during the 1970s and 1980s, and he was y known as Osho only during the last years of his life and afterwards.


One of Osho’s students had asked him:


‘Beloved Master, I feel shocked when you use the word ‘fuck.’ What to do?’

Osho replied:


"Sargamo, it is one of the most beautiful words. The English language should be proud of it. I don’t think any other language has such a beautiful word.


One Tom from California has done some great research on it. I think he must be the famous Tom of Tom, Dick and Harry fame.


He says:


"One of the most interesting words in the English language today is the word ‘fuck.’ It is one magical word: just by its sound, it can describe pain, pleasure, hate, and love. In language, it falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a verb, both transitive (John fucked Mary) and intransitive (Mary was fucked by John), and as a noun (Mary is a fine fuck). It can be used as an adjective (Mary is fucking beautiful). As you can see there are not many words with the versatility of ‘fuck.’


Besides the sexual meaning, there are also the following uses:


Fraud: I got fucked at the used car lot.


Ignorance: Fucked if I know.


Trouble: I guess I am fucked now!


Aggression: Fuck you!


Displeasure: What the fuck is going on here?


Difficulty: I can’t understand this fucking job.


Incompetence: He is a fuck-off.


Suspicion: What the fuck are you doing?


Enjoyment: I had a fucking good time.


Request: Get the fuck out of here!


Hostility: I am going to knock your fucking head off!


Greeting: How the fuck are you?


Apathy: Who gives a fuck?


Innovation: Get a bigger fucking hammer.


Surprise: Fuck! You scared the shit out of me!


Anxiety: Today is fucked.


And it is very healthy too. If every morning you do it as a Transcendental Meditation – just when you get up, the first thing, repeat the mantra “Fuck you!” five times – it clears the throat. That’s how I keep my throat clear!


Enough for today."
