Osho’s most celebrated meditations on the human condition

For Osho, the ideal man is Zorba, the Buddha?a perfect blend of matter and soul. This seamless collection of discourses takes the reader through the various stages of man’s evolution: from Adam to Slave, Son, Homosexual, Priest and Politician, until he attains the pinnacle of his consciousness as the Rebel or Zorba. Sparkling with anecdotes and enriched with brilliant repartee, The Book of Man is a remarkable blend of wisdom and wit.

The Book of Woman describes what it means to be a woman and explores the feminine aspect of human beings. A woman, Osho says, should not imitate man: ‘Rejoice in your feminine qualities, make a poetry out of them.’ The perfect state of being, according to Osho, is a synthesis between the head and the heart, with the heart remaining the master. The rare sensitivity of Osho’s words on issues ranging from sexuality and love to work and politics, will appeal to both men and women.

Osho

Osho defies categorization. His talks, which run into thousands, 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 generations.'


Osho has been described by 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'. Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of the ten people-along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha-who have changed the destiny of India.

About his own work, Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as 'Zorba, the Buddha'-capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of Zorba, the Greek and the silent serenity of Gautama, the Buddha. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho's talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest potential of today's (and tomorrow's) science and technology.


Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique OSHO Active Meditations™ are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.


Two autobiographical works by the author are available: Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic, St Martin's Press, New York (book and e-book), and Glimpses of a Golden Childhood, OSHO Media International, Pune, India.
