Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Osho is one of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching people of all ages in virtually every country of the world.


Born in India in 1931, Osho first became known as a rebellious philosophy professor in the 1960s and traveled extensively throughout India, giving talks, debating with traditional religious leaders, and introducing his revolutionary active meditation technique, Dynamic Meditation. In 1974 he established a center for meditation and self-discovery in Pune, India. His work there, he said, was an experiment to create the conditions for the birth of a "new man"--one who is free of all outdated ideologies and doctrines of the past and whose vision encompasses both the spiritual wisdom of the East and the scientific understandings of the West.


Osho is now globally recognized as one of the twentieth century's most important spiritual guides, although his uncompromising approach and "in your face" style were often misunderstood during his lifetime. "He loved controversy," says Aroon Purie, editor of India Today. "He used to make all kinds of outrageous statements that would get everybody worked up. People used to get upset about the messenger and forget the message. Today the messenger isn't there and people are listening to the message, which is something very intelligent and useful."

Synopsis:

The Portland guru, known by many aliases but referred to in most of his books as Osho, died around 1990. Drawn from some 5000 hours of recordings, this autobiography allows the human being to speak for himself in more ways than one.

Synopsis:

An indispensable work for understanding the life and teachings of one of the most unusual mystics and philosophers of our time.

Ten years have past since, in the words of his attending physician, Osho prepared for his departure from the body that had served him for fifty-nine years "as calmly as though he were packing for a weekend in the country." This volume is recognition that the time has come to provide a historical and biographical context for understanding Osho and his work. Who was this man, known as the Sex Guru, the "self-appointed bhagwan" (Rajneesh), the Rolls-Royce Guru, the Rich Man's Guru, and simply the Master?

Drawn from nearly five thousand hours of Osho's recorded talks, this is the story of his youth and education, his life as a professor of philosophy and years of travel teaching the importance of meditation, and the true legacy he sought to leave behind: a religionless religion centered on individual awareness and responsibility and the teaching of "Zorba the Buddha," a celebration of the whole human being.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index.
