OSHO The Luminous Rebel
Life Story of a Maverick Mystic
A rebel, an iconoclast, an enlightened mystic and an intellectual giant, Osho (also known as Acharya Rajneesh and Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) is all this and more. He brought about a spiritual revolution in the lives of those who cared to grow intellectually. He spoke fearlessly against orthodox religions, priests, politicians, age-old traditions and anything he thought was a hindrance to the path of self-realisation. This made him the most talked about and controversial mystic of the twentieth century. Osho, The Luminous Rebel traces the story of Osho from his birth, talking about his spiritual search for truth and the wondrous story of his enlightenment. The book also takes the reader for the early years of Osho’s struggle with authority figures, to the much -hyped city of Rajneeshpuram in the US and his incarceration in various jails across the US, where he believes he was poisoned by the US government.He was later denied visa in twenty-one countries across the world –events, he reveals, that exposed the true face of ‘democracy’. Osho, The Luminous Rebel is for all Osho lovers and admirers, for the uninitiated and the spiritually inclined, and for those who are just curious to know more. Written by Vasant Joshi (Ph.D.)

I smiled with a warm glow in my heart when I read your story. It is lovely to recognize how Osho just keeps on flowing to and from the People of the Heart. Your book will be enjoyed by so many who have been reached by Osho and more to come. I'm so glad we are connected regardless of time and distance since we last met...maybe 25 years ago? Wow!
It is so mysterious how we all feel the love no matter where or when.

I am so enjoying your book, bringing so many sweet memories up, and the pure love that caught fire so many years ago and sent me on this wild journey of the heart. The one thing that we all have in common is this total love affair with the Master. Unexplainable and undeniable. What a blessing!

The Point of Vanishing
 

Short Introduction:

“How do I find my Way?”

This adventure story is spiritual and not religious.  It tells of a journey to self-realisation; a journey that we all must make at some time in the cycle of our lives.  Victor is escaping from a world of crumbling institutions, power and paranoia.  He faces, one by one, the heartaches and the inner challenges we human beings are called upon to face.  He tangles with a tantric lover, faces death in a meeting with his long dead parents and flounders in the mirages of mind.  We travel with him through the sometimes tragic, sometimes comic landscapes of the modern world.  In this expansive work the author interweaves related stories from his own inexplicable life.

About Rashid Maxwell

Rashid grew up in post-war England.  After public school, active service in the Royal Navy and a year at Oxford, he studied fine art at the Chelsea School of Art.  He lived for nearly twenty years as a painter, Lecturer and Art Therapist. 

In the seventies he left the art world and went, with his wife and four children, to live on an organic farm in the remote Welsh Marches.  A close call with death impelled him to travel to the East and meet a spiritual teacher.  He lived and worked for thirteen years in his commune until the teacher’s death.   Since then he has lived in many countries, in both cities and deserts, in communes and alone. 

He now lives in rural Devon with his partner Nisheetha, sharing in the lives of his children, painting and writing, keeping bees working with the land and delighting in a pandemonium of grandchildren.

Supporting comments:

A big-hearted, touching book masterfully written.  In its elegant poetic way it is a compelling itinerary – both symbolic and realistic – of the spiritual seeker's journey home.

Mara Rosolen, Author

Savour his descriptions: the quest for higher consciousness is both the story’s subject and its process.  The author travels to his own interior.  He draws out a fiction of the heart’s quest for ultimate truth.  He gives us an entertaining epic with filmic scenes of waterfalls, deserts, sex, and seething cities all expressing humour and deep trust.  The sub-text is a guide to allowing change and accepting chaos as the furnace for creativity. This is the story of an awakening.

Roddy Maude-Roxby  Actor (The Voice of Edgar in Disney’s Aristocats)

Truth is often better served by fiction than by fact. My friend Rashid, a painter, poet, beekeeper and mystic who has published slim volumes, articles and short stories now takes the challenge of a novel – Yeah!

Henry Wainscot Troubadour

This is a journey of self-discovery.  The reader shares in the quest for the vanishing point; the point of ultimate realisation.  Replete with Eastern understanding, the journey also embraces Western psychology.  It offers, at a story-teller's pace, the peaceful and always personal alternative that our materialist society hides from us.  An inspiring and enjoyable read.

Robin Moulsdale, Author of Inner Fitness  

Each and everyone’s journey is different, yet for all us, one thing is true: the voyage is arduous and exciting beyond all dreams.  You are about to take part in what is the most important revolution ever, the ultimate revolution of the Inner. Are you ready?

The Ultimate Iconoclast

‘There is no need to agree with anything I say. Just contemplate on what I say; that is enough. See if you find anything right. If you do not agree with what I said; just forget it. However, if you find a small fragment of what I said to be right, contemplate upon it. After through contemplation, if it still seems right to you, it will become your truth—it will no longer be mine. And the truth that becomes yours, that truth alone will make you wise…. Borrowed truth can never be of any use to you; it will actually harm you… The ultimate truth has to experienced first-hand; there is no other way.’

OSHO

A few years ago, a friend of mine called on me after a long time and asked me what I was working on. I told him that I was writing a book on Rajneesh. ‘Oh! One fraud writing on another fraud!’ said he, in his usual tongue-in-cheek manner.
‘It takes a fraud to understand another fraud,’ I replied.

Mention the name Rajneesh or Osho, and you always get an amusing, and often extreme response. People either idolise him or demonise him. When I was considering the subject of my Ph.D. thesis; among many options I also considered his philosophy as a topic. Some laughed at the idea, while others cautioned me that it would be academic suicide.
If people were allowed to do doctorates on Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Ramana Maharshi, why was research on Rajneesh ignored, I wondered, considering the fact that, at least to my knowledge, no such work has been done on him so far.
While this book was being written, I was often asked, ‘Why Rajneesh?’ The reader, too, might ask the same question because there are over seven-hundred books by Rajneesh himself in the market.
And my reply would be—it is precisely for this reason I have written this book. The Rajneesh corpus is immensely voluminous, and very few have the time to go through it. People read excerpts here and there out of context and jump to absurd conclusions.
When I first heard his recorded discourse over twelve years ago, I, like many who hear him for the first time, was astounded by sheer force of his orator, poetic language, and the guts to turn accepted notions upside down. As one of my teachers, Prof. Bhupinder Brar, once told me: ‘I have read many shocking books, but after a few pages I get no further shocks. However, Rajneesh is one thinker who never fails to shock me every third page.’
He was the ultimate iconoclast. So Rajneesh shocks, and that is because in his own words: ‘The absolute truth is like that. It is shocking and dangerous. And if you do not have the guts to face it, you must not seek it.’

-Dr. Kuldip Kumar Dhiman

Introduction

The introduction of this book is in two parts. This is not the normal practice, but with Rajneesh Osho nothing can be normal. The first part gives a broad overview of Rajneesh’s ideas and methods . it tries to put his thought in perspective, so it becomes slightly easy to understand him. The second part deals specially with the contradictory nature of his ideas.

Gita Darshan, The Bhagavad Gita, Adhyay 1 & 2
 

Osho is known all over the world as a mystic and a spiritual master. He is known for his approach to life, which emphasizes meditation, love and celebration. In these talks on the Gita, Osho reveals to the reader another approach which is based on self-enquiry, on questioning and pondering, but at the same time it is a non-ideological approach, not based on any fixed principle taken a priori—an approach which is rooted in Osho’s inner wisdom manifesting itself in the world of thought patterns and concepts.

We may say that this approach is the birth of a new vision of sadhana, of the spiritual path. Osho does not propose a fixed path with rigid rules, nor does he propose a new paradigm. He just helps the human mind to come to its natural flowering and keeps reminding us that, in the process, the mind has to question and doubt all concepts, conditionings and a priori conclusions. Within Osho, the energy which is contained in the doubting mind, in the questioning mind, has flowered into a pure vision, which is beyond thought—what Osho calls a state of thoughtlessness. That is the state, which Osho would like every seeker to attain. Osho speaks from that dimension but his uniqueness, which differentiates him from the many enlightened souls who have walked on this earth, is his extraordinarily sophisticated and cultured mind, which enables him to be so articulate in his expression.

Why should we say that Osho’s words in this series on the Bhagavad Gita give birth to a totally new vision of sadhana? Osho’s talks lead us through the labyrinth of the human mind and may become a tool, for generations to come, which can help seekers from all paths to use the mind and the thinking process in such a way that—as Osho continuously reminds us—thoughts may lead us to the edge of the abyss, where we can take the final jump into thoughtlessness.

Nothing can be said about the state of thoughtlessness, but Osho has much to say about the thinking process, about man’s ability to question and enquire. In this series, Osho takes us by the hand—just like Krishna took Arjuna by the hand—and leads us through a long journey of self-enquiry, which lasts 219 discourses.

Self-enquiry, the journey from mind to no-mind…but one has to have a mind before one can drop the mind! Osho is the perfect example of this simple truth. With a personal library of more that 150,000 books, he stands out for his immense knowledge and erudition and at the same time he is probably the most well known mystic of the 20th century, who has completed the journey from thought to thoughtlessness. That is the ultimate spiritual path, which Osho describes from many different perspectives in this series on the Bhagavad Gita.

Man has to move from mind to no-mind—that is the journey. But man cannot move into thoughtlessness, if he has not learned how to think, how to understand himself—his motivations, his desires, his attachments. Osho’s new vision of sadhana may give birth to a new school of psychology—the psychology of the Buddhas—which can indicate to man the right path to self-enquiry and self-transformation. Krishna’s extraordinary psychological insights, which transpire throughout the dialogues with Arjuna, become the jumping board from where Osho leads us into that journey. Probably nobody before Osho has understood so deeply Krishna’s unique psychological approach, nobody has ever thought of Krishna as the first great psychologist of the East. Up to now Krishna has been considered as a divine incarnation, as a complete avatar, but nobody before Osho has brought to light Krishna’s genius as a psychologist.

Arjuna’s despair and hopelessness are the same despair and hopelessness, which has gripped modern man. And the same keys, which Krishna gave Arjuna thousands of years ago, can work even today. Osho explains in clear, modern language and concepts how to use those ancient keys. Perhaps this is the birth of a new spiritual path, which is outlined in this book by two great masters of the inner world: Krishna and Osho.

Osho, a twentieth century Enlightened One, brings Krishna’s ancient wisdom into modern language, more easily understandable to a contemporary man who is on a spiritual search—just like Arjuna was, thousands of years ago.

From the shlokas of the Gita, Osho ventures into the psychological realms of modern man, whose problems seem to be not very different from Arjuna’s suffering and despair, and proposes to modern man the same ancient keys, the same solutions which Krishna had proposed to Arjuna, in an effort to help him attain the ultimate reality. What are those keys? That is to be discovered by the reader who dares to explore the unknown dimensions of Krishna and Osho.

The timeless message of Krishna is brought to a new life by Osho, India’s mystic and intellectual giant of the 20th century. Enjoy the adventure…

Ma Yoga Videh
Swami Chidananda

Osho’s talks on the Bhagavad Gita give a new perspective on the extraordinary dialogues between Krishna and Arjuna. They reveal an unknown aspect of Krishna’s multifaceted individuality. Probably nobody before Osho has understood Krishna’s extraordinary insights so deeply. Considered a divine incarnation, Krishna is a complete avatar, yet until now no one has brought to light His genius as a psychologist.

Osho, a twentieth century Enlightened Master translates ancient wisdom into modern language, making it more easily understandable to the contemporary man on a spiritual search—just like Arjuna was thousands of years ago.

“According to me, I would call Krishna ‘the father of psychology’. He is the first individual who has understood the wavering mind, the mind which is in conflict. He has seen the mind full of sorrow, the will power being fragmented—and has tried to bring integrity, unity and wholeness to the mind. He is the first individual who has introduced psychoanalysis and has explored the human mind.”-OSHO

Beyond Osho: The Key to Osho’s Great Works

By Jorge Blaschke

This small – 7 x 5.5 ins. or 18 x 14 cms. – book is like a champagne bottle. It tempts you with its pink cover, title and design. As soon as you open it, there is a loud bang as when the bottle is uncorked. As you turn its pages to see what it is all about, sparkling images, intoxicating headings and provocative quotes from many different spiritual masters whet your taste.

When you start to savor and sip its contents, you begin to taste the bubbly contents. The contents cannot be gulped down like any wine but savored like an expensive treat. As you read the text, it becomes a special occasion being celebrated with bubbly.

The book promises you to reveal the ideas, teachings and the message of the great master.  For this mission, the publishers claim to have sold over a million copies! Really? Well, if you read it, you can come to know why this staggering number has been sold.

The answer is not difficult to come by. First, it explains the total heritage of Osho to the West in the language in line with their thinking. It has taken a Spanish national award winning journalist, Jorge Blaschke, to get this credit despite millions of Osho’s Western disciples. He has worked for the prestigious El Pais newspaper in Spain, studies astronomy and paleontology, written scripts and directed shows for TV, has interest in sates of human consciousness and comparative religions.

Second, he brings a good number of other noted mystics, both from the East and the West, into his text and uses their quotes and photos all through the book. So he presents Osho in the context of other modern mystics, especially from the West, some of whom the reader may not have known before.

Third, he is perhaps the only author who has presented Osho’s diverse dimensions. Most books about Osho cover his myth shattering ideas, his unique insights and original views. So Osho comes over as a philosopher or a mystic at the most. Blaschke gives due recognition and importance to Osho’s unique meditation techniques, uplifting music and divine dancing.

Four, starting on a spiritual journey of profound learning, the author introduces you to Sri Aurobindo who was steeped in Western culture as he schooled in England and finished at Cambridge and knew Greek, Latin, Sanskrit and Bengali. Thus, Aurobindo is a scholarly guide for the Western reader to start with. J. Krishnamurthy and Ramakrishna follow until the author ends the opening chapter with Osho.

Five, the book design by Ladia Estany is eclectic. The imaginative selection of full page full colour photos makes it attractive.  Every page has one or two short quotations from mystics to make the text sparkle.

The major concepts of Osho’s vision – master and disciple, ego, traps of success and power, violence, false conception of time, sex, Zen, happiness, enlightenment and the mind – are all tackled in brief chapters. The book ends with Osho’s insights contrasted with Western religions. He writes while many Eastern masters predicate non-violence and peace, Western spiritual leaders like the Popes used violence throughout the centuries as in Crusades. This is the substantial difference between the spirituality of the East and the West. Then there are different concepts of immortality, external or internal search; opposite visions of sex and sin.

This is not a book to be whizzed though. Like a glass of champagne, it has to be savored at leisure, its deeper meanings be allowed to sink in for maximum understanding and wisdom.

The title echoes Osho’s famous book, ‘I Am The Gate’ in which he exhorts to move on beyond him. Just like Blaschke. Widen your horizon with this book, go beyond Osho.

THE JOURNEY OF BEING HUMAN
Is It Possible to Find Real Happiness in Ordinary Life?

“You can be human only if you go on making all efforts, all possible efforts to become divine. In those very efforts, your humanity will start shining. In those very efforts, you will become alive.” OSHO

Man is a bridge, says Osho, between the animal and the divine—and our awareness of this dual aspect of our nature is what makes us human. it is also what makes us restless, full of conflict, and so often at crossroads of selfishness and generosity, of love and hate, of frailty and strength, of hope and despair. The  journey of Being Human looks into how we might embrace and accept these apparent contradictions, rather than try to choose between them, as the key to transforming each twist and turn of life’s journey into a new discovery of who we are meant to be.

The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on the most important questions in life of the individual. Each volume contains timeless and always contemporary investigations into and discussions of questions vital to our personal search for meaning and purpose, focusing on questions specific to our inner life and quality of existence.

Osho is one of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. He is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, and the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

The Diamond Sutra

Buddha’s famous diamond Sutra is beautiful, lyrical, and often obscure – but Osho brings it vividly to life, delivering the timeless message of Buddhism with intelligent wit and loving understanding of the difficulties his audience encounters.

Written over 25 centuries ago, The Diamond Sutra is the first text to record the Buddha’s own teachings and is still immensely popular among practicing Buddhists today.

“The sutra – The Diamond Sutra – was born in Sravasti. It means perfection of wisdom which cuts like a thunderbolt. If you allow, Buddha can cut you kike a thunderbolt. He can behead you. He can kill you and help you to be reborn. The new being is possible only when the old has been destroyed. A Buddha has to be both – a murderer and a mother. On the one hand he has to kill, on the other hand he has to give new being to you” -OSHO

In this book Osho offers his unique and highly accessible interpretation of the Buddha’s words, making it seem as if you are in the audience whIle he speaks . His words come from recordings of his teachings. The easy, humorous conversational style makes for effortless reading and bring the most complex ideas into a form that anyone can understand and learn from.

Osho is one of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of our time. The Sunday Times of London has named him one of the 1,000 makers of the twentieth century; the novelist Tom Robbins has called him the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ. Nearly two decades after his death in 1990 the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers around the world. His books consistently sell hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide and his website receives over a million hits every month.

Vedanta Seven Steps to Samadhi

The Upanishads were born nearly five thousand years ago. They are secret communion, a transmission beyond scriptures, beyond words, between an individual and existence.

The seven steps to samadhi or enlightenment athat eh Akshi Upanishad describes are a like a seeker’s map or guide to the inner journey. The first three steps are the waking state of the mind, the surface of our personalities; the fourth and the fifth steps go deeper as we enter into our subjectivity; the sixth stage is still deeper, where there are no longer any objects or subject, and the seventh is not a step at all, it is our very nature, our being.

Like Osho, the Upanishads don’t teach renunciation. Instead, Upanishadic wisdom encourages us to live in the world, play in the world, rejoice in life, and to experience the unchanging and eternal as we journey on these seven steps.

“The world of the Upanishads is very close to my approach. In fact, what I am dong here is giving a rebirth to the spirit of the Upanishads.” -OSHO

BODHIDHARMA THE GREATEST ZEN MASTER

Commentaries on the Teachings of the Messenger of Zen from India to China

“You cannot explain what sweetness is to the man who has never tasted sweets. You can bring all your articulateness, but you cannot explain a simple thing, sweetness. The only way is to offer him some sweets. That’s what the masters have been doing all along. Rather that telling you what sweetness is, they offer it to you to taste. They themselves are offering their own being, their own presence for you to taste it.” -OSHO

Bodhidharma is named as the 26th Zen Patriarch in the line emanating form Gautam Buddha. However, as Osho says, he shows even “higher flights” that Buddha—who would not accept any female disciples—as his master was the enlightened woman, Pragyatara.

Buddhism had entered China six hundred years earlier, and now Pragyatara instructed Bodhidharma to go there and to pass on Buddha’s essential message of enlightenment. The earlier messengers of Buddha’s teachings had had a great impact on the people of China, but none had been enlightened. It was now time for the taste of realization, of awakening, to be passed on.
Osho dissects these volumes of notes from Bodhidhamrma’s disciples in detail, pointing out where, and how, the disciples’ minds have come in to distort the message of this Buddha—an awakened one.

WORK IS LOVE MADE VISIBLE
In Work is Love Made Visible Osho is talking about his work: its importance and value, the inner qualities that those interested in helping it succeed need to understand and to develop, and its day-to-day organization. These talks were given shortly after he had left his university post in order to share his vision for humanity with as many people as possible, and are addressed to the people who had recently started working with him.

Osho discusses the profound personal issue that work brings up for everyone around hierarchy, power, responsibility, and the art of relating, demonstrating at the same time a supreme respect for each person’s individuality, dignity and freedom. He covers every practical area of his work, from the perils and practicalities of financial accounting to the importance of using the most up-to-date media available. Underpinning all of this is his understanding that unless humanity is prepared to walk through the fire of awareness and allow work itself to become a moment-by-moment tool for self transformation, no one will ever derive any real benefit form working and no work will ultimately succeed.

Osho outlines his blueprint for a new “anarchic institution” and says: “I do not intend to bind people by laws, rules or principles, because I am fighting against these very things.” Instead, his proposal is rooted in “a gathering of friends,” as it prepares the ground for a spiritual revolution—a total transformation for the individual and for the whole of society.

BELIEF, DOUBT, AND FANATICISM
Is it essential to have something to believe in?

“Remember, only blind people believe in light. Those who have eyes don’t believe in light, they know! The moment you know something, the necessity for belief disappears. But the world is full of believers.” OSHO

In, Belief, Doubt, and Fanaticism, Osho brings his unique and often surprising perspective to the religious, political, social, and economic forces that drive people into opposing camps, fanatical groups, and belief systems that depend on seeing every “other” as “the enemy.” As always, the focus is first and foremost on the individual psyche and consciousness, to identify the root causes and hidden demons of our human need to belong and have something to “believe in.”

The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on the most important questions in the real life of the individual. Each volume contains timeless and always contemporary investigation into and discussions of questions vital to our personal search for meaning and purpose, focusing on questions specific to our inner life and quality of existence.

SHOWERING WITHOUT CLOUDS
So much has been written and spoken about male mystics but what about women? In this rich and rare book on the poems of Sahajo, Osho talks about what it means to be a woman, a seeker, and a mystic.

Sahajo is a simple-hearted woman form Rajasthan. Her statements are fresh and direct. She says things clearly and uniquely: nothing is hidden, nothing is borrowed. She is neither a poet nor a scholar but she is awakened.

On this journey with Osho and Sahajo it becomes clear that a woman experiences meditation primarily through love. Her focus is on the personal. Only when she is very close to enlightenment do her hitherto dormant masculine qualities help her take the final jump into consciousness to a place where the duality of male and female no longer exists.

“Up to now I have spoken on enlightened men. Now for the first time, I will speak about an enlightened woman. It was easy to speak on enlightened men. I can understand them, we are of the same type. It will be a little difficult to speak on an enlightened woman. It is a slightly unfamiliar path…”

The Fire of Truth THE PATH OF THE MYSTIC-1
Every few thousand years an individual appears who irrevocably changes the world around them in ways that are never immediately apparent, except to the most perceptive.

Osho is one such individual: his spoken words will resonate for centuries to come.

All those words have been recorded and transcribed into books like this one, written words that can carry a transforming message to the reader.

For Osho, all change is individual. There is no “society” to change – it can only happen to each one of us, one at a time.

So, no matter what the subject matter of the book, the thread that runs through all Osho’s words is like a love song that we can suddenly, mysteriously, hear at just the right moment. And strangely, no matter what the words seem to be referring to, they are really only referring to us.

And this is no ordinary love song, more an invitation to open our hearts to hear something beyond the words, beyond the heart…a silence beyond all understanding. Where we all belong.

In The Fire of Truth – the first volume in The Path of the Mystic Series – Osho not only answers but also dissolves a wide spectrum of questions, infusing his discourses with parables and personal stories.

For Osho, all change is individual. There is no “society” to change – it can only happen to each one of us, one at a time.

So, no matter what the subject matter of the book, the thread that runs through all Osho’s words is like a love song that we can suddenly, mysteriously, hear at just the right moment. And strangely, no matter what the words seem to be referring to, they are really only referring to us.

And this is no ordinary love song, more an invitation to open our hearts to hear something beyond the words, beyond the heart…a silence beyond all understanding. Where we all belong.

In The New Freedom – the second volume in The Path of the Mystic Series – Osho outlines his liberating, radical vision for a new humanity.

DEATH THE GREATEST FICTION

Can we know death without dying? Osho’s answer is, yes. For this to happen, he recommends meditation. Only in a meditative state can one experience what death is. In Osho’s words:

“Meditation and death are very similar experiences. In death your ego disappears; only your pure being remains. The same happens in meditation too: the disappearance of the just ego and the presence only of pure is-ness, your being. The similarity is so deep that just as people are afraid of death, they are also afraid of meditation. On the other hand, if you are not afraid of meditation, you will not be afraid of death either.

Meditation prepares you for death…it helps you to know death without dying. And once you have known death without dying, the fear of death will disappear forever. Even when death comes, you will be silently watching it, knowing absolutely that it cannot even make a small scratch on your being. It is going to take away your body, your mind, but not you. You belong to the immortal life”.

THE WORLD BEYOND TIME
Inner growth happens only when there is divine discontent. When you are absolutely unsatisfied with things as they are, only then do you start rising higher, only then do you make an effort to pull yourself out of the mud.

Osho’s philosophy will take you to a world beyond time and beyond death, and help you create a distance between your mind and your body. It is only then that you have taken the final step of transcendence. This is the psychology of the buddhas; it is this that takes you beyond the mind; it is this that takes you beyond time.

Awareness The Key of Living Balance
Underlying all meditation techniques, including the martial arts—and, in fact, underlying all great athletic performances—is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that Osho calls awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives.

According to great masters like Lao Tzu of Buddha, most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers, never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do.

At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness, or awakening, to use another word, in extraordinary circumstances: on the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, when time seems to stop, or in situations that touch us deeply—welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, being with someone at the moment of death—when we are aware of every movement, every sound, every thought.

Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centered, and free in every aspect of our lives. In this book, Osho teaches us how to live life more attentively, mindfully, and meditatively, with love, caring, and consciousness.

OSHO challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by the Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Compassion The Ultimate Flowering of Love
IN THIS TENTH VOLUME OF THE POPULAR OSHO 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, 100-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.

OSHO is one of the best known and most provocative spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Intimacy Trusting Oneself and the Other
“Hit-and-run” relationships have become more common in a society like ours that has grown more rootless, less tied to traditional family structures, and more accepting of casual sex. But at the same time there arises an undercurrent of feeling that something is missing—a quality of intimacy.

This quality has very little to do with the physical, though sex is certainly one possible door. Far more important to intimacy is a willingness to expose our deepest feelings and vulnerabilities, with the trust that the other person will treat these with care. Ultimately, the willingness to take the risk of intimacy has to be grounded in an inner strength that knows that even if the other remains closed, even if that trust is betrayed, we will not suffer any permanent damage.

In this gentle and compassionate guide, Osho takes us step-by-step through what makes intimacy frightening and how to encounter those fears, go beyond them, and nourish ourselves and our relationships to support more openness and trust.

The Mystery beyond mind

With his signature wisdom and wit, Osho offers his refreshing vision of religiousness, one based on the truth of one’s own direct experience of life. In The Mystery beyond Mind he infuses new life into the ancient sayings of Patanjali, an Indian sage who systemized Yoga nearly two thousand years ago. Through his responses to individual’s questions, Osho shows that by simply applying new approaches to ordinary, everyday situations, these can become opportunities for awareness and relaxation. This book provides inspiration and practical, contemporary guidance for seekers everywhere.

“Look at the misery and always try to find out the cause, and you will find the cause within yourself. Once you find the cause is inside, the point of transformation has reached to its maturity. Now you can turn over, now you can change – you are ready. While you go on throwing responsibility on others no change is possible. Once you realize that you are responsible for all the misery that you have created – you are your own hell – that very moment a great turning happens. Immediately, you become your own heaven.”

Creativity Unleashing the Forces Within
As Osho points out in the foreword to this book, historically, the creative person has been all but forced to rebel against the society.

But nowadays, the situation has dramatically changes. In today’s world, the ability to respond creatively to new challenges is demanded of everybody, from corporate CEOs to “soccer moms.” Those whose toolbox for dealing with life includes only what they have learned in the past from their parents and their teachers are at a distinct disadvantage both in their relationships and in their careers. Making the switch from imitative and rule-bound behavior to creative innovation and flexibility requires a profound change in our attitudes about ourselves and our own capabilities.

Creativity is a handbook for those who understand the need to bring more creativity, playfulness, and flexibility to their lives. It’s a manual for thinking “outside the box”—and learning to live there, as well.

Intelligence The Creative Response to Now
IN INTELLIGENCE, OSHO CHALLENGES THAT IDEA THAT the best way to promote intelligence is to train the intellect. Intellect is logical, he says; intelligence is paradoxical. Intellect takes things apart to see how they work; intelligence puts things together to see the functioning of the whole. Osho posits that when our education systems put too much emphasis on developing intellect, an imbalance is created and both the individual and the society suffer. It is only through intelligence that we can respond creatively to the challenges of a changing world.

The Insights for a New Way of Living series aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves. Readers are encouraged to confront what they would most like to avoid, which in turn provides the key to true insight and power.

By exploring the distinction between intellect and intelligence, intelligence encourages readers to be more aware of how they approach problems—logical, emotional, and practical—and how they solve them.

Maturity The Responsibility of Being Oneself
In a culture infatuated with youth and determined to avoid old age at all costs, this book dares to raise a question that has been all but forgotten in the age of Viagra and cosmetic surgery. What benefits might lie in accepting the aging process as natural, rather than trying to hold on to youth and its pleasures all the way to the grave?

Osho takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up rather than just to grow old. Both in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, he reminds us of the pleasures that only true maturity can bring. He outlines the ten major growth cycles in human life, from the self-centered universe of the preschooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age.

Osho’s sly sense of humor runs like a red thread through the book, along with a profound compassion and understanding of how easy it is to be distracted from the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives—which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy.

JOY The Happiness That Comes from Within
IN JOY, OSHO POSITS THAT TO BE JOYFUL IS THE BASIC NATURE of life. Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place in the universe. Accepting joy is a decision to “go with the flow,” to be grateful to be alive and for all the challenges and opportunities in life, rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness.

The Insights for a New Way of Living series aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves. The text is an artful mix of compassion and humor, and readers are encouraged to confront what they would most like to avoid, which in turn provides the key to true insight and power.

Joy is a wondrous investigation into the source and importance of Joyfulness in our lives.

COURAGE The Joy of Living Dangerously
Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain—where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to find the courage to face them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

The book begins with an in-depth exploration of the meaning of courage and how it is expressed in the everyday life of the individual. Unlike books that focus on heroic acts of courage in exceptional circumstances, the focus here is on developing the inner courage that enables us to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears—in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are why we are here.

Courage also features a number of meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people deal with their fears.

FREEDOM The Courage to Be Yourself
IN FREEDOM, OSHO OUTLINES THREE STAGES OF FREEDOM.

The first is “freedom from,” which is a freedom that comes from breaking away from restrictions imposed by outside forces such as parents, society, or religion. The next stage is “freedom for,” a positive freedom that comes from embracing and creating something—a fulfilling relationship, for example, or an artistic or humanitarian vision. And lastly there is “just freedom”, the highest and ultimate freedom. This last freedom is more than being for or against something; it is the freedom of simply being oneself and responding truthfully to each moment.

The Insights of a New Way of Living series aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves. Readers are encouraged to confront what they would most like to avoid, which in turn provides the key to true insight and power. 

Freedom helps readers to identify the obstacles to their freedom, both circumstantial and self-imposed, to choose their battles wisely, and to find the courage to be true to themselves.

This is a compilation of various references in His talks that illustrate the events and incidents around Him.

Finger Pointing to the Moon
“[The Adhyatma] Upanishad is a direct encounter with spirituality. There are no Siddhants, no doctrines in it; in it there are only experiences of siddhas, the fulfilled ones…[and] hints to those who are full of longing for liberation by those who have already attained liberation’” —OSHO

In Finger Pointing to the Moon: Talks on the Adhyatma Upanishad Osho draws on the ancient wisdom of this Upanishad to reflect on God, religion and the liberation of the self. Religion for him is not worship, devotion and prayer, but mumuksha, the deep longing for freedom from the fetters of everyday life that can lead a seeker on the path to enlightenment. When one reaches this state of kaivalya, the abode of truth and eternal bliss beyond mind and speech, one becomes unified with the God within oneself.

Then one achieves true knowledge and true mastery over the self.

These seventeen talks that Osho delivered at Mount Abu, Rajasthan, make this book a truly enriching guide for those seeking to look within and find answers to the enigmas of human existence.
