Life's Mysteries: An Introduction to the Teachings of Osho

 
Osho . (Author)
Synopsis This was the basis of all of Osho's teachings, and one that was often lost in the controversies that surrounded him for most of his career as a spiritual guide. A man of vast learning who had read everything he could find to broaden his understanding of the belief systems and psychology of modern man, he was at the same time completely original in his approach, insisting on finding out the truth for himself rather than accepting what had been taught by others. Iconoclastic yet persuasive, lucid yet grounded in a wealth of theological knowledge, his message found a worldwide audience. In Life's Mysteries the reader is introduced to some of the key tenets of Osho's philosophy. A sampling: Life: I teach the art of living your life totally, of being drunk with the divine through life. Love: If you really want to know about love, forget about love and remember meditation (just as) if you want to bring roses into your garden, forget about roses and take care of the rosebush... In the right time, the roses are destined to come. Sex: If it can give birth to a child, to a new life...you can imagine its potential: it can bring a new life to you too. Enlightenment: You should not make any effort, you should relax and enlightenment comes. Death: To me death is not the end of life but...the very climax...If you have lived rightly, if you have lived moment to moment totally, if you have squeezed out the whole juice of life, your death will be the ultimate orgasm.

About the author

Osho .

Osho was born in Kuchwada, Madhya Pradesh, on 11 December 1931. Rebellious and independent from childhood, he insisted on experiencing the truth for himself rather than acquiring knowledge and beliefs given by others. He attained 'enlightenment' at 21 and went on to complete his academic studies. He spent several years teaching philosophy at the University of Jabalpur. Meanwhile, he travelled throughout India delivering talks and meeting people from all walks of life. By the 1960s, Osho had begun to develop his unique dynamic meditation techniques. He felt that modern man is so burdened with the archaic traditions of the past as well as the anxieties of modern-day living that he must go through a deep cleansing process before he can hope to discover the thought-less, relaxed state of meditation. In the early 1970s, the West first began to hear of Osho. By 1974, a commune had been established around him in Pune, and the trickle of visitors from the West soon became a flood. Osho spoke of every aspect of life and on the development of human consciousness. Based on his own existential experience rather than on intellectual understanding, he distilled the essence of what is significant to the spiritual quest of contemporary man. Osho left his body on 19 January 1990. His commune in India continues to attract thousands of international visitors who come to participate in its meditation, therapy and creative programmes or to simply experience being in a 'Buddhafield'. Osho's talks have been published in more than 600 volumes and translated into over thirty languages.
