One Seed Makes the Whole Earth Green
Talks on Zen, Talks given from 13/01/89 pm to 16/01/89 pm, English Discourse series, 4 Chapters, Year published : 1989
One Seed Makes the Whole Earth Green Content : In Osho's understanding Zen is the only true religion, the only approach to religion which has not put fetters on mankind. He sees in Zen a seed, pregnant with infinite potential. Interspersed with his comments on anecdotes about the Zen masters Rinzai and Fuketsu, Osho addresses current issues in the world news. With characteristic forthrightness he shows the split in what society preaches and how it lives. This exquisitely designed volume of discourses also features commentaries on haikus and a great selection of jokes.
The Original Man
Talks on Zen, Talks given from 16/08/88 pm to 25/08/88 pm, English Discourse series, 9 Chapters
The Original Man Content : What's so original about the original man? Only that on finding him within yourself, according to Osho you find everything worth discovering. But he exhorts his audience not to take his word for it but experience it for themselves. Osho traces Zen from its beginnings with Bodhidarma in China through a succession of masters and poets. Seemingly absurd Zen statements and devices are all shown as techniques used in specific situations with different types of seekers to jolt them out of spiritual sleep. These discourses based on anecdotes about masters and their disciples aren't about Zen, they are it.

And Osho answers: `My beloved ones...' and goes on to describe the workings of the timeless mystery schools the world over and the support they give to the seekers of truth. What is mysticism? What is fear? What is freedom? These questions and more are answered with the clarity of an enlightened mystic. From Buddha to Rinzai, from Krishnamurti to Marx, from Gandhi to Bodhidharma, Nietzsche, Jesus, Gurdjieff and Zarathustra... all become grist to Osho's mill, bringing the reader to the point of awareness where all questions begin to disappear.
The Path of Love
Talks on Songs of Kabir, Talks given from 21/12/76 am to 31/12/76 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1978
The Path of Love Content : Osho has said that history, as taught in schools, is a history of criminals like Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, Hitler.... The real history is the evolution of consciousness created by enlightened masters. To re-write history, Osho introduces to us the great mystics of the world. In his book The Path of Love, are the exquisite songs of the fifteenth century mystic Kabir, with Osho's enlightened interpretation. Each great master has his own fragrance and way of teaching. Kabir is unique in that, as an orphan, he came from a poor background. He was adopted by a spiritual teacher, and later became a weaver by trade; he married and took care of his family. After he became the much beloved master of thousands of disciples, he continued to weave, taking his cloth to the market and greeting customers personally. "Osho is the rarest and most talented religionist to appear in this century. His interpretations are saturated with the truth of Buddhism." Kazuyoshi Kino Professor of Buddhist Studies, Tokyo

Philosophia Perennis, Vol 1
Talks on Sufi Stories, Talks given from 21/12/78 am to 30/12/78 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters
Philosophia Perennis, Vol 1 Content : Osho declares that if the Greek mathematician and mystic Pythagoras had been listened to and understood, humanity's history would have been totally different. Pythagoras is a man close to Osho's heart, with his understanding that materialism and spiritualism -- East and West, body and soul --exist together, are not opposing forces but complementary facets of a harmony. In this series of talks Osho discusses the verses of Pythagoras and responds to seekers'questions.
Philosophia Perennis, Vol 2
Talks on Pythagoras, Talks given from 31/12/78 am to 10/01/79 am, English Discourse series, 11 Chapters, Year published : 1981
Philosophia Perennis, Vol 2 Content : Osho explains in this volume that Pythagoras who he describes as "a seeker of truth par excellence," lived in Alexandria and was initiated into the mystery schools of Egypt in his search. He then traveled to India, Tibet and China—then the whole-known world—in his search until he became self-realized. He found a perennial philosophy but was persecuted by society, attempts made on his life, and he was unable to work out his system in detail. The fragments that were left after his death were collected and written up by a disciple in The Golden Verses of Pythagoras. Osho expounds on the idea of the East and West as representative of the brain's two hemispheres; on fanaticism, beliefs, friendship, and on the two Pythagorean laws—of necessity and power. His enthusiasm and love for Pythagoras are evident in these talks on his verses.
Philosophia Ultima
Discourses on the Mandukya Upanishad, Talks given from 11/12/80 am to 26/12/80 am, English Discourse series, 16 Chapters, Year published : 1980
Philosophia Ultima Content : These discourses contain what Osho describes as the most significant statements ever made, and which point to the whole secret of the mystic approach towards life. And the sutra that begins this series of discourses, he says, contains the very essence of the entire Upanishadic vision—that the universe is an indivisible totality, an organic whole. Osho illuminates these ancient texts with such clarity that their significance seems stunningly obvious. A wealth of jokes and amusing anecdotes are magically interwoven through his commentaries.
