Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 1
Talks on Fragments from Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, Talks given from 11/06/75 am to 20/06/75 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 1 Content : Osho recounts how Lao Tzu, at the age of 90, was leaving for the Himalayas to spend his final days. Until this time he had never written down his insights, but at the border a guard (who was also his disciple) imprisoned the mystic and refused to release him until he wrote down something of what he had come to know. That is how this unique text, the Tao Te Ching, was born. Osho comments on this classic text from his uniquely fresh perspective, and also answers questions about the I Ching, growth and spirituality in the context of Tao, the concept of sudden versus gradual enlightenment, and much more.
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 2
Talks on Fragments from Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, Talks given from 21/06/75 am to 30/06/75 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 2 Content : Osho's affinity with this ancient Chinese mystic is such that he says when he speaks on Lao Tzu he is speaking as if on himself. So clearly does Lao Tzu reflect the unity of opposites, life's absurdities, its ordinariness, and the beauty of that ordinariness, that Osho sees in him a "spokesman for life." In this volume Osho comments on the verses of Lao Tzu and answers questions from disciples and other seekers - Why did you choose a male form as your last one? Please explain the difference between discipline and control. What happens when an enlightened being dissolves into the cosmos? And more.
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 3
Talks on Fragments from Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, Talks given from 11/08/75 am to 20/08/75 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 3 Content : Osho's commentary on the timeless verses of Lao Tzu is set in poetic format, as are his responses to questions from disciples and other seekers. Questions include: Isn't the search for enlightenment selfish? How much patience is needed? Is there really nothing we can do? Do all beings eventually find their way to enlightenment? What is the difference between innocence and ignorance?
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 4
Talks on Fragments from Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, Talks given from 21/08/75 am to 31/08/75 am, English Discourse series, 9 Chapters
Tao : The Three Treasures, Vol 4 Content : Lao Tzu speaks of his "three treasures": Love... Never too much... Never be the first in the world. Osho uses this exquisite text to deliver some of his most potent words on love - not as an emotion but as the subtlest form of energy, the substratum of all energy and the essence of life itself. He also speaks on love in relation to sex, fear, the family, science, art and prayer; the mind as a biocomputer; the difficulty of comprehending the simple; and the problem of identification with the body. A treasure trove of Osho's wisdom.
That Art Thou
Talks on the Sarvasar Upanishad, Talks given from 08/01/72 pm to 21/10/72 pm, English Discourse series, 51 Chapters, Year published : 1987
That Art Thou Content : Discourses on the Sarvasar Upanishad, the Kaivalya Upanishad and the Adhyatma Upanishad during the first meditation camps in which Osho spoke English. Each of these 51 short chapters covers a different theme, based on the sutra being discussed, and translates this ancient wisdom into the language of today. Osho's talks around these Upanishads are a blueprint for anyone interested in meditation. The book includes photographs, never released before, of Osho and the meditation camps, and the complete text of his instructions as he leads Dynamic Meditation, one of the most important techniques he created for the seeker today. These discourses were given during the first meditation camps in which Osho spoke in English.
Theologia Mystica
Discourses on the Treatise of St. Dionysius, Talks given from 11/08/80 am to 25/08/80 am, English Discourse series, 15 Chapters, Year published : 1987
Theologia Mystica Content : Osho says of these letters by Dionysius, first bishop of Athens, to his disciple Timothy: "His whole book is written with a disguise, as if it is a treatise on theology; mysticism is just somewhere by the side, secondary, not primary. Hence the name Theologica Mystica—as if mysticism is only a consequence of getting deep into the world of theology. Just the reverse is the case."
This Very Body the Buddha
Talks on Hakuin's Song of Meditation, Talks given from 11/12/77 am to 20/12/77 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1978
This Very Body the Buddha Content : Of these verses that comprise the song of the 17th-century mystic, Hakuin, Osho comments, "It is a very small song, but a great gift. This is a song of meditation. If meditation is without a song, it is dull and dead. You will find this song and its meaning only when you are singing and dancing, when the music of life has overtaken you."
This, This, A Thousand Times This : The Very Essence of Zen
Talks given from 27/05/88 pm to 10/06/88 pm, English Discourse series, 15 Chapters
This, This, A Thousand Times This : The Very Essence of Zen Content : Through his commentaries on anecdotes about Zen masters Osho reiterates that Zen is not for the mass-mind but only for the individual who is unconcerned with the dictates of the status quo. Further, Zen is for those intelligent enough to understand the limitations of the intellect and ready to recognize the significance of intuition in the world of mysticism. Throughout, Osho keeps bringing the reader back to the moment, to this, as the only reality.
The Transmission of the Lamp
Talks given from 26/05/86 pm to 18/06/86 am, English Discourse series, 46 Chapters, Year Published : 1989
The Transmission of the Lamp Content : In this third book which covers much of the esoteric side of the spiritual search, Osho responds to questions from the small group of sannyasins with him on tour. He explains "witnessing" or "watching" as a 24-hour technique that can be done anytime, anywhere; and talks on astral projection, past lives, and the origins of depression.
The True Sage
Talks on Hassidism, Talks given from 11/10/75 am to 20/10/75 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year Published : 1976
The True Sage Content : Ten discourses on Hasidism, in which Osho responds to a story from The Tales of Hasidism by Matin Buber, and to questions submitted by disciples and seekers. This book is a mixture of light-hearted stories and the penetrating understanding of a true sage. Like the Hassids, Osho's own emphasis is on playfulness and celebration : "Judaism has produced one of the most essential lines of mystics, the Hassids... It is one of the most beautiful ways to find oneself and to find the reality of existence."
