Osho loves the Nirvana Upanishad because it is so revolutionary – it insists that the only way to experience true awareness is to go beyond all systems of morality. Maybe this is why Osho's commentary is the first one on this Upanishad.

Excerpt from: Behind a Thousand Names, Chapter 1
"Whatever you are, you will have to bow down to that which you wish to become. Whatever you are, you will have to pray to that which is your potential to become. It is as if a seed is praying to the flower that it will one day become.

"Such a prayer is not going to be beneficial to existence, but through it you will derive a great strength within yourself. This prayer is not said as a favor to existence but as a favor to yourself. If a drop can pray to the ocean rightly, somewhere deep within its being, a contact with the ocean already begins to take place. When a drop invokes the ocean, in some mysterious way it begins to earn the capacity and worthiness to become one with the ocean. When a drop prays to the ocean for help in order to reach it, half the journey is already completed. The trust and sincerity with which a drop asks the ocean for help breaks the barriers of its tiny, narrow existence and joins it with the vast.

"In a moment of prayer, a person does not remain the same as he was before; it is as if a closed door opens for him. It is as if a window that had been closed opens and a new dimension, the possibility of a new journey, a new sky is glimpsed. Not that you have reached the sky; but standing within your own house a door opens and you have begun to see the limitless sky. But you remain where you are, you have not changed." Osho
