Product Description

Review

"To meet oneself is the greatest miracle in the world." --Osho

About the Author

Osho defies categorization. His thousands of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho's books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it, 'So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you... I am talking also for the future generation.' Osho has been described by the Sunday Times in London as one of the '1000 Makers of the 20th Century' and by American author Tom Robbins as 'the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ'.

Format: Paperback
In this book, Osho takes a series of Zen stories (the teachings of the Taoist Sage Chuang Tzu), and expands on them.
To many of us, Zen stories seem a bit like darkened rooms, containing some profound mystical truth, that we can't find! The Zen teaching says "It's right here!" And we say "Where?" And we carry on groping about in the dark.
Using his insightful understanding of Zen, Osho leads us into the 'room' and turns the light on.
These stories, along with Osho's narrative, enable us to drop 'what is not', and to experience 'what Is'.
As always, Osho speaks intelligently, in a way that is irresistably interesting and enlightening; always from an egoless state, and always from his own inner place of Truth, that resonates with our own.

Wow...well, what can I say.

My awe never ceases to be inspired by this ... His works are simply ineffable. That's It. They cannot be put into words.

It is a great privilege to have access to Osho, to read his works and be moved by them.

I simply cannot recommend his teachings highly enough.

It`s okay. In the first chapter you can understand it but as you read along, it didn`t make sense to me. Everyone has different views. It does make you think. It`s a good book though.

I've never failed to read a book based upon Osho's talks that I didn't gain something from and this book is no exception.

Osho' perception was impeccable. Buy this. Read this. Digest this.

HASH(0x9081f114) out of 5 stars Easy is right 14 Sept. 2009
By Evgeny Kolev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Osho. And in my extensive collection of his books, this takes a very special place. Probably as it talks about some of the most precious Taoist gems. But also, for being so clear and fresh, avoiding some of his loops he goes into in some other books. I have thought about it and believe this would be the one book I will have to keep from Osho if I am to choose. In fact, I've bought it as presents to some of my friends who have not be introduced to him. The book however, may not be the best choice for people who are not familiar enough with the Taoist worldview and Osho for sure has collections which offer more populist introduction to his mystic ways.

HASH(0x9081faa4) out of 5 stars What a talent 22 Feb. 2008
By NAUM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Taoist parables are very deep, interesting experience of reading the parable, trying to come up with your own explanation and then read Osho's comments.
One would enjoy reading this book. I would highly recommend it! If you are reading this review - means something already brought you here, don't stop and buy it. :-) Pathless Path is another great book on Tao.

HASH(0x904f4924) out of 5 stars This book can be life-changing even if the reader is barefoot. 22 Jun. 2016
By M. A. Gates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sometimes a book comes along that changes everything. As I read, and I wanted to rush through it but could not, I noticed that I felt different. Yes, I appreciated the parables, the clear interpretation of the Tao in contemporary life. No, I was not trying to change. Was it the words or the space in between the words?

Or was it simple the letting go, the exhalation into a single sound..."ahhh?"
