To be totally free one needs to be totally aware, because our bondage is rooted in our unconsciousness; it does not come from the outside. Read the first page

He was quoted in the times as the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ, and to that its not until much later in history we realise what a great man this was. His insights are truly inspiring, and it changed my life completely and has also changed the life of many of my friends. I disagree with the first reviewer, as always there will always be people that will try and poke into their past, we are not perfect and aiming for perfection will only result in failure as it is not possible. We all make mistakes and the more mistakes we make the more we grow as a human being. The press always are determined to judge people on their past.... but the past is the past and is no longer with us. Osho's teachings tell us that most of all the worlds problems stem from greed... and its so true, you only have to look at the world now to see this happening. Our politicians only fix the symptoms but never the cause helping them to remain powerful. Once we understand greed and acknowledge this, we can then take steps to cure ourselves of this dreadful disease. I was a high flying executive who thought money was everything, it did not bring me joy. I now live in a state of complete Joy and am now aware of the beauty that surrounds me every moment. This is the best book book you could ever read for yourself and don't listen to those that always try to judge and condemn others by their past. The past is gone and will not return.

Format: Paperback
Osho is one of the few spiritual teachers I feel a certain instinctive sympathy with (although I don't really support his philosophy). The reason, of course, is his iconoclastic, near-frivolous and yes, anti-religious attitude. It's a dish best served at Youtube, where Osho says that "thank God, God does not exist", "It's time for Mother Theresa to jump into a lake", "I don't allow meat at my ashram, but I allow alcohol, because that is vegetarian"... It's a real pity that Osho turned out so badly, creating what was just another cult, at "Rajneeshpuram" in Oregon. Does the name Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh ring a bell? Yes, that was Osho's name as a cult leader! I suspect Osho (who died in 1990) adopted his new name when the old one became too tainted.

Osho's books are less provocative than his speeches on the web. At least the ones I read so far. They are also difficult to pin down. The message sounds trivial, nebulous and yet, in some strange way, profound. "Freedom" combines Eastern meditation with Western self-help and positive attitude. However, the self-help and attitude-building isn't connected to a New Age prosperity gospel (as in "The Secret"). Rather, Osho sounds like a sixties hippie. He calls on people to become drop outs, to sing and dance, practice free love, and die with a smile on their face. The message is both life affirming and yet somehow anti-social. What Osho is really getting at, I think, is fear of "not belonging". His main enemy is conformism, in matters both big and small. Going with the crowd, what Osho calls "being a camel", is the greatest sin, but so is being a negative rebel, "being a lion". The positive rebel is innocent like a child and quite simply floats where the stream takes him.

The book - is a very good read. What made the book more appealing is the price. The price was good.

One of my favourites from Osho as it gives a real insight into what freedom really means and how you can experience it in everyday life.
