Book Description

In this tenth volume of the popular Insights for a New Way of Living series, Osho examines the nature of compassion from a radically different perspective. He points out that "passion" lies at the root of the word, and then proceeds to challenge assumptions about what compassion really is. Many so-called acts of compassion, he says, are tainted by a subtle sense of self-importance and desire for recognition. Others are based in the desire not really to help others but to force them to change. Using stories from the lives of Jesus and Buddha and the world of Zen, Osho shows how the path to authentic compassion arises from within, beginning with a deep acceptance and love of oneself. Only then, says Osho, does compassion flower into a healing force, rooted in the unconditional acceptance of the other as he or she is.


Compassion includes an original, 120-minute talk by Osho on DVD. This visual component enables the reader to experience the direct wisdom and humor of Osho straight from the source.

Compassion encapsulates all that is wonderful about Osho; his humour, his irreverence and his wisdom. This was the first Osho book I read, it is a real gem, I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bodhi's Review of Compassion by Osho 12 May 2007
By Bodhi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Zen monks have a tea ritual whereas one is totally immersed in the moment sipping tea with full awareness, sipping a little bit at a time, enjoying the flavor, enjoying the aroma. I recommend that you treat this book as such, reading a few pages at a time so you can absorb the insights a little bit at a time, giving yourself time to truly appreciate what Osho has to say. I read a few pages in the early morning when my mind is still fresh, clear and when I can still appreciate this gift.
