The Search
Talks on the Ten Bulls of Zen, Talks given from 01/03/76 am to 10/03/76 am, English Discourse Series, 9 Chapters, Year Published : 1977
The Search Content : The ten paintings that tell the famous Zen story of a farmer in search of his lost bull provide an allegorical expression of the search for enlightenment. Originally Taoist, The Ten Bulls were repainted by the 12th-century Chinese Zen master, Kakuan, and first appeared in the West in American author, Paul Reps'book, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. These discourses are Osho's commentaries on the paintings, and on the poetry and prose which accompany them in Paul Reps'book. In answering the question, "Why am I here?" Osho dismantles not only this but probably every "why" the mind can contrive. There is a beautiful talk about the relation between discipline and awareness; another about Tantra and Yoga, the path of love and the path of meditation and where they meet.
The Secret
Discourses on Sufism, Talks given from 11/10/78 am to 31/10/78 am, English Discourse Series, 21 Chapters, Year Published : 1980

The Secret of Secrets, Vol 1
Talks on the Secret of the Golden Flower, Talks given from 11/08/78 am to 26/08/78 am, English Discourse Series, 16 Chapters
The Secret of Secrets, Vol 1 Content : In these unique discourses Osho unravels the many technical terms used by Lao Tzu's predecessor, the Chinese mystic Lu Tsu and explains his meditation techniques. He outlines the qualities of animus and anima - our male and female energies - as delineated by Lu Tsu, and explains the importance of their relationship inside each individual. Throughout these discourses there is a sense of urgency, the urgency of a scientist who sees the technology available but not being implemented. For Osho religion is not speculative but essentially experiential, an experiment as scientific as the outer, objective science.
The Secret of Secrets, Vol 2
Talks on the Secret of the Golden Flower, Talks given from 27/08/78 am to 10/09/78 am, English Discourse Series, 15 Chapters
The Secret of Secrets, Vol 2 Content : Osho transforms the texts of Lu Tsu into readily accessible wisdom of lasting appeal. In alternate discourses he talks on a vast range of subjects - love as therapy and prayer as the highest form of love; love and death; fear of the unexpected, and the difference between the intelligence of the mind and that of the heart.

Socrates Poisoned Again After 25 Centuries
Talks given from 19/02/86 pm to 15/04/86 am, English Discourse series, 28 Chapters, Year Published : 1988
Socrates Poisoned Again After 25 Centuries Content : As the bishop of Crete's Greek Orthodox Church urges the local citizenry to forcibly drive him out of the villa where he is staying, Osho revives the spirit of Zorba in a series of lively talks to his disciples and to visiting journalists. Eventually Osho, like Socrates, was accused of "corrupting the youth"—and his heavy-handed deportation is documented in an eight-page color section at the end of this volume. But in the meantime the "corruption" had been recorded in print. A banquet of timely topics, from politics and religion to teenagers and sex, it sparkles like the Mediterranean setting in which it happened.

Talks on Sufism, Talks given from 11/08/77 am to 26/08/77 am, English Discourse series, 16 Chapters
Sufis : The People of the Path, Vol 1 Content : Jokes...paradox...parables...wisdom....absurdity...all to shake the reader out of his intellect and into the innocence of the mystic. Osho distills the essence of Sufism for the contemporary man, not to inform the reader about the state of mysticism but to create the situation in which we discover the mystic within ourselves.

East and West merge into one quest as Osho urges us to realize our buddha-consciousness, our enlightenment—that which we always have been. "You'll learn more about yourself reading one chapter of The Search than you will reading a dozen ordinary books on Zen."
The Supreme Doctrine

The Supreme Doctrine Content : The Supreme Doctrine deals in depth with many aspects of meditation, the fundamentals of how to move intensely and totally into this experience spoken of by the rishis in the Ken Upanishad . Osho's insights are incisive, his freshness and dynamism are captured in these talks. He explains the process of meditation: "Meditation is first of all an effort to make you independent; and second, to change your type and quality of consciousness. With a new quality of consciousness old problems cannot exist: they simply disappear."
