Product Description

Review

"These techniques will not mention any religious ritual. No temple is needed, you are quite enough of a temple yourself. You are the lab; the whole experiment is to go on within you. This is not religion, this is science. No belief is needed. Only a daringness to experiment is enough; courage to experiment is enough.These 112 methods are for the whole of humanity-for all the ages that have passed, and for all the ages that have yet to come. I will go on describing each method from as many angles as possible. If you feel any affinity with it, play with it for three days. If you feel that it fits, that something clicks in you, continue it for three months.Life is a miracle. If you have not known its mystery, that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it." --"Osho"

About the Author

5.0 out of 5 stars A most wonderful book 5 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
The 112 techniques in this book are very different and some do not seem to be 'meditations' at all, until you read Osho's fantastic descriptions about why they work when trying to find your true inner self. He touches on all aspects of life and a lot of what he says makes perfect sense, and writes in a simple style that is very easy to follow. Often passages can be repetitive but unlike say most of the teachings by Buddha, this is done in a more conversational style that does not irritate.

It is worth noting that Osho is not affiliated with any particular religion and in fact often states why religion is not the answer and actually detrimental to man's ability to move forward and evolve spiritually. He will often compare meditations and teachings to writings and teachings in other religions, but only to illustrate what he sees as universal truths at the base of many of the worlds religions, which are twisted by the current day priests and guru's preaching doctrine.

I have to point out that I am only about half way through the book (It is a large tome!) and enjoy dipping in and out of it. Just reading the words helps me to remember those feelings of centred-ness from previous meditation sessions, without the need to actually meditate... and this is one of OSHO's central tenets - that it is easy, that no effort should be involved, it is effortless!

If you are fed-up with religion, and want to feel more spiritual; or even if you are atheist and would like to feel more blissful in life - then have a read of this. You don't have to believe in a God or divine nature or even anything outside of 'it's chemicals reacting in the brain', these techniques will help you achieve a happier state of being - which should be the goal for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful interpretation of Shiva sutras 18 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
I love Shiva Sutras and have different books related to Shiva Sutras, including Vijnanabhairava or Divine Consciousness, even a set of videos by Nityananda (I like to call him "young Nityananda" to differentiate from the more famous one who has left the body). Each sutra is only a line or two long and it contains a technique one can apply to ultimately experience Self-realization. There are all together 112 sutras - as it is said - all paths lead to God or God-realization - each of these 112 sutras is a technique that may be suitable to a particular individual at a particular point in time. Some people may feel comfortable observing the breath, some may feel more comfortable "loving God with all their hearts, minds, bodies and souls" - regardless of the form they give to the ultimate, or whether they are ready to let go of any forms and contemplate that which is formless, some may be musically oriented and may use music and pauses between sounds to dive into the experience of the Self, and so on. When you use a technique that is appropriate for you, you are bound to experience some noticeable changes within a few short time, often instantly. When you are using a technique which you've been practicing for months or years and nothing is happening, then perhaps that is not the best method for you.

In this Book of Secrets, Osho gives interpretation of each of the sutras through many interesting stories and metaphors. The sutras in themselves are priceless for the spiritual aspirant and I consider, and the interpretations in this book help to bring them closer home.
