Responses to Disciples Questions, Talks given from 01/09/79 am to 10/09/79 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1981
Content : In this volume Osho comments on stories compiled by the Jewish philosopher Martin Buber. Osho helps the reader to face the reality of his own death without fear, and thereby living life to the optimum. Originating in Poland around 1750, Hasidim sought a direct, spontaneous religious experience of life, and created a great tradition of laughing saints and wonderful stories. “In a language simple but yet profound, the master Osho indicates the art of ‘dying’ by learning how to live in the here and now, the eternal life.”

Talks on the Baul Mystics, Talks given from 21/06/76 am to 30/06/76 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1976
Content : “The Baul mystics are children of celebration. They celebrate life, they celebrate death. Whatever is, is seen as a gift…they simply love life in all its aspects,” is how Osho introduces us to these mystics of Bengal. And in the first verse of their song, “Only a connoisseur of the flavors of love can comprehend the language of a lover’s heart” is revealed the essence of their religion. Osho explains their view of sex, their concept of the body as a temple and their secret of surrender to God, to the Beloved, to “the essential man” who lives within us all.
|009||The Beloved, Vol 2|
Talks on the Baul Mystics, Talks given from 21/06/76 am to 10/07/76 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1976
Content : Ten talks with alternating commentaries on the songs of these delicious madmen, mystics, fools and poets with answers to seekers’ questions. And whatever the question, the answers all convey the trust, oneness and love experienced by the Bauls. Spontaneous and life-affirmative, “theirs is the path of the dancer, the singer, and the aesthetic man.” “I have read most of [Osho’s] books and listened to tapes of his talks, and I am convinced that in the spiritual tradition, here is a mind of intellectual brilliance and persuasive ability as an author.”
Talks given from 03/10/86 pm to 04/11/86 pm, English Discourse series, 32 Chapters, Year published : 1980
Content : What makes Osho different from Gautam Buddha and other enlightened masters and mystics throughout history? The answer is here, in his own provocative words: “To go beyond enlightenment is to go beyond individuality and become universal.” Osho responds to questions on topics ranging from the intimate to the universal, from religion to philosophy, from present-day politics to his own childhood experiences, from enlightenment to what lies beyond.
Talks given from 12/04/86 pm to 04/05/86 am, English Discourse series, 44 Chapters, Year published : 1988
Content : Against a backdrop of almost universal political harassment, Osho talks in depth on a variety of esoterica. He describes techniques of self-discovery, pointing out that psychological answers to man’s self-made miseries will no longer work. These discourses are rare jewels of wisdom. “Many subjects of interest to psycho-historians are taken up by [Osho] in this fascinating series of talks — from esoteric topics to more familiar subjects like sex, child rearing, and the place of mind in understanding the world.”
|012||Bodhidharma : The Greatest Zen Master|
Talks given from 05/07/87 am to 14/07/87 pm, English Discourse series, 28 Chapters, Year published : 1993
Content : Osho paints a portrait of Bodhidharma, one of his favorite Zen masters, as an enlightened “mafia guy” with a personal history that reads like a spiritual Alice in Wonderland.”In this volume Osho brings Bodhidharma to modern sensibilities but in a contemporary and interesting manner. Nearly 400 fascinatingly intelligent pages of questions and answers, lectures, writings, etc. A revolutionary, contemporary, utterly irreverent way to the spirit.”
|013||The Book of Wisdom|
Discourses on Atisha’s Seven Points of Mind Training, Talks given from 05/07/87 am to 14/07/87 pm, English Discourse series, 20 Chapters, Year published : 1987
Content : The complete series of talks that Osho gave on the Indian mystic Atisha are combined for the first time in a handsome new hard-back edition. Atisha’s fundamental teaching is outlined in “the Seven Points of Mind Training” he devised and which Osho describes as being of inestimable value. He suggests that the seeker “meditate on Atisha, listen to his advice. This is not a philosophy, it is a manual to discipline yourself, it is a manual for inner transformation. It is a book that can help you grow into wisdom.” An extraordinary journey into the world of an incredible early Buddhist mystic. “He is the rarest and most talented religionist to appear this century.”
|014||The Buddha : The Emptiness of the Heart|
Talks on Zen, Talks given from 08/09/88 pm to 15/09/88 pm, English Discourse series, 8 Chapters, Year published : 1988
Content : In this particularly potent dose of Zen, Osho challenges the reader to know the “empty heart,” beyond feelings and sentiment, the door to eternity that exists within everyone. Using stories and haikus from past Zen masters, Osho reveals the relevance of Zen for the contemporary world. He separates Zen from all the other religions in the world, stating that they are obsolete whereas the Zen he is presenting is an alive phenomenon.
