Ecstasy - The Forgotten Language
Talks on Kabir, Talks given from 11/12/76 am to 20/12/76 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1976
Ecstasy - The Forgotten Language Content : Osho speaks on the exuberant poems of Kabir, as translated by India's Nobel Prize-winning poet, Rabindranath Tagore. He also responds to questions as diverse as the difference between relationship and aloneness, mind and society, self and enlightenment, and explains the difference between a crystallized self and a strong ego.
The Empty Boat
Talks on the Stories of Chuang Tzu, Talks given from 10/07/74 am to 20/07/74 am, English Discourse series, 11 Chapters, Year published : 1976
The Empty Boat Content : Osho revitalizes the 3000-year-old Taoist message of self-realization through the stories of the Chinese mystic, Chuang Tzu. He speaks about the state of egolessness, "the empty boat"; spontaneity, dreams and wholeness; living life choicelessly and meeting death with the same equanimity. This beautiful edition overflows with the wisdom of one who has realized that state of egolessness himself.
The First Principle
Talks on Zen, Talks given from 11/04/77 am to 20/04/77 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1979
The First Principle Content : Osho introduces these discourses on Zen stories by explaining what the first principle is: that which cannot be said. But it can be shown and experienced as Osho demonstrates in talking on the often bizarre, always maddeningly simple anecdotes about interchanges between Zen masters and their disciples. He also talks on intellect and reason in the seeker's life, spiritual greed and the real meaning of the Zen dictum to "kill" one's master. Somehow Osho takes the enigmatic quality of Zen and shows us its pragmatic truth, without robbing it of its inherent magic, charm or humor.
The Fish in the Sea is Not Thirsty
Talks on Kabir, Talks given from 11/04/79 am to 25/04/79 am, English Discourse series, 15 Chapters, Year published : 1980
The Fish in the Sea is Not Thirsty Content : Commenting on the haunting songs of Kabir, Osho takes the reader to the very core of the human dilemma, to the simple cause of misery and unhappiness—man's illusion that he is separate from existence, his inability to comprehend why the fish in the sea is not thirsty. He also talks on emotions and being detached from them, aloneness and love, imitation, children and religion, rebellion, living in a balanced way, sex, the generation gap, and more. "The clarity with which Osho expresses his thoughts, in an easy and direct style, is remarkable. Reading him is a liberating experience which everyone can reach."
From Bondage to Freedom
Answers to the Seekers on the Path, Talks given from 15/09/85 am to 27/10/85 am, English Discourse Series, 43 Chapters, Year Published : 1985
From Bondage to Freedom Content : A deeply moving account of a rare and provocative experiment in human growth, these are Osho's last discourses given in the US. While most of his disciples are experiencing the fruition of their efforts to manifest a living community based on Osho's vision, a small, power-motivated group's secret attempts to take control of the commune, poison Osho and his doctor is revealed as they flee the country. Through it all, Osho answers the questions of disciples and friends devastated and confused by the wanton disregard of the few corrupted people. His answers expose the truth with uncompromising compassion as he talks on fascism, power games and individual responsibility. As always Osho indicates how absolutely everything can be used by the seeker to wake up and be more aware.
From Darkness to Light
Answers to the Seekers on the Path, Talks given from 28/02/85 pm to 31/03/85 pm, English Discourse Series, 30 Chapters, Year Published : 1985
From Darkness to Light Content : Education, according to Osho, is drawing out the hidden potential of the individual, to help each person bring his own uniqueness from the darkness into the light. In these talks he examines ways in which the institutions of society have systematically done the opposite in their attempts to impose socially-acceptable norms of behavior on everyone -- from the cradle to the grave both in public and private life.
From Death to Deathlessness
Answers to the Seekers on the Path, Talks given from 02/08/85 am to 14/09/85 am, English Discourse Series, 40 Chapters, Year Published : 1985
From Death to Deathlessness Content : Sensing the storm about to descend on his American commune, Osho responds to residents and visitors' questions. The topics cover the whole spectrum of human concern -- poverty, AIDS, education, politics, creativity, existentialism, psychology, nuclear war, power, relationships, money.... Osho answers each with respect and compassion, always going beyond the surface of the rational mind to the deeper waters, to the very source.
From Ignorance to Innocence
Answers to the Seekers on the Path, Talks given from 29/11/84 pm to 29/12/84 pm, English Discourse Series, 30 Chapters, Year Published : 1984
From Ignorance to Innocence Content : Most of us have quoted The Bible, been quoted at from The Bible, sworn on The Bible, doubted The Bible, but how many of us have really questioned its basic premise, that God exists: how much of what I've accepted as my religion is related to my own experiences and has any relevance to my day to day life? Looking for the answers, we find our minds so full of ideas instilled from birth - sin and guilt, reward and punishment, this world and the other, somebody out there bigger than us who we should obey - it's almost impossible to untangle the mess and start from scratch. In this series of discourses Osho exposes our conditioned beliefs as a means by which to help us experience life and its inherent religiousness from a fresh perspective, with our own, individual eyes. A must for the thinking Christian. "You just don't read Osho, you undefine yourself."
From Misery to Enlightenment
Answers to the Seekers on the Path, Talks given from 29/01/85 pm to 27/02/85 pm, English Discourse Series, 30 Chapters, Year Published : 1985
From Misery to Enlightenment Content : Of this question-and-answer series, a journalist from "Club Degi Editori," Italy writes: "With complete clarity, and using examples, anecdotes and quotations which amaze the reader with their range, Osho expresses his way of thinking: to destroy every religion and to create Man all over again out of his own depth of being. From Misery to Enlightenment provokes energy, optimism and enthusiasm for life and its gifts. It is not a holy book, nor is it a confession of faith. It is a lively and readable account which allows a deep understanding of the vast scope of his teaching, which is directed towards helping us understand who we are, and which is widely debated and widely practiced."
From Personality to Individuality
Answers to the Seekers on the Path, Talks given from 30/12/84 pm to 28/01/85 pm, English Discourse Series, 30 Chapters, Year Published : 1984
From Personality to Individuality Content : Richly embroidered with hilarious personal reminiscences, this volume covers the family, the place of mysticism in Osho's religion; the function of the commune, madness and enlightenment; Krishnamurti, the infallibility of the pope, and Osho's daily routine. These discourses make it clear why Osho became the nemesis of established religious and political hierarchies all over the world.
