Zen and the Art of Living

Osho . (Author) A.H.W. Sameer Series
Synopsis In this collection of talks on Zen Buddhism, Osho brings special flavor of the song sung from the poems of Zen master Ikkyu. Gentle as a summer breeze, yet piercing as the sharpest sword, Ikkyu's poems reflect the clarity of Buddha-Mind. Osho says: I am not saying any new thing every day. The truth is very simple and it can be said in a few lines. But if you don't hear it, I have to tell it again and again.I go on talking to you so that one day I will be able to persuade you to listen to the silence that has happened to me. And those who have started understanding me, they are not listening to my words any more they are listening to my presence.Many of you have already entered into a wordless contact with me. If you listen to my words, that too is only because those words contain something of the wordless.That's why when new people come who are not acquainted with me and my ways, they cannot understand what is happening here. Something is happening here, but it is very elusive. It cannot be explained to the outsiders. It is a love relationship. I go on talking to you, the same things. I talk out of love. You listen to me out of love, Talking and listening is not relevant but the communion. Talking and listening is just an excuse for the communion to happen.

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.
