Philosophia Perennis (Talks on Pythagoras, the Philosopher and Mystic)

 
Osho . (Author)
Synopsis

“Pythagoras is almost an archetype: the seeker for truth par excellence, a person who devoted his whole life to finding Philosophia Perennis, the perennial philosophy of life. The possibility exists in everybody; it has to be actualized.” Many of us know Pythagoras’ famous theorem in geometry but few of us are aware that he also traveled extensively in search of truth, learning from many mystery schools. Being both mathematician and mystic, he was the first enlightened person to experiment with creating a synthesis between science and mysticism. So Pythagoras is a man close to Osho’s heart, with this understanding that materialism and spirituality - East and West, body and soul - exist together, as complementary parts of a harmonious whole. All that remains of Pythagoras’ mystical teachings are these Golden Verses of Pythagoras, on which Osho expands, giving us insights into Pythagoras’ profound understanding of the mysteries of existence, and his commonsense approach to life. Osho also responds to seekers’ questions. Speaking with authority, clarity, sharpness and humor, his insights address both the timeless and timely concerns that tend to escape our notice in the clamor and overload of daily life.

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.
