The Supreme Science

Osho
Select Preferred Format

Says Osho: ‘Patanjali takes the whole complexity of the human being into account – Never before and never after has such a comprehensive system evolved.’ Drawing on the teachings of Patanjali, Osho gives an entirely new perspective on the fundamental questions of life, the nature of heaven, religion and God. For Osho it is not a question of being ‘good’ or ‘bad’, or of a God in the sky, but of each individual becoming aware of his being and attaining kaivalya- the ultimate state of enlightenment when the meditator goes beyond all desire. This process draws on the inner science of yoga. Replete with anecdotes, and including a series of questions and answers that directly address the existential anxieties of a contemporary readership, this book by Osho is a must-read for all those who want to explore the mysteries of life.

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.
