015Christianity : The Deadliest Poison
Talks given from 22/01/89 pm to 29/01/89 pm, English Discourse series, 8 Chapters
Content : With ruthless precision and wisdom that is often shocking, Osho dismembers Christianity in the presence of twenty-one Jesuit priests visiting his commune during this series. This is Osho at his most candid as he deals with all the unspoken questions anyone from a Christian background might ever want to ask. Also available on “I think the essential thing he does is first to cut the dead wood of religions, because there’s so much accumulated rubbish around every religious system. And he is quite merciless in what is necessary.”

Reflections on Jesus of Nazareth, Talks given from 31/10/75 am to 10/11/75 am, English Discourse series, 11 Chapters
Content : Osho talks on Jesus the man, Jesus the Jew, Jesus the revolutionary, Jesus the mystic. That is, he speaks on Christ, not on Christianity. The Christ that Osho speaks about is alive, vital. As Osho responds to the sayings of Jesus, suddenly what Jesus was trying to impart becomes luminously clear, startlingly relevant. In addition, Osho answers questions from seekers such as: How does consciousness relate to God? Did Jesus manipulate the High Priests to bring about his martyrdom? Are fear and guilt the same thing? “I have never heard anyone so beautifully and playfully integrate and then dissolve the psychological problems which, for generations, have sapped our human energies.”

Reflections on Jesus of Nazareth, Talks given from 11/12/75 am to 20/12/75, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters
Content : Jesus is brought alive in a new and dynamic way—not the Jesus that the theologians and scholars have presented to us but Jesus as seen through the eyes of a contemporary mystic. In alternate discourses Osho answers questions about trust, his path in relation to other paths, the difference between being a fatalist and going with the flow, perfectionism, the behavior of an enlightened man, the paradox of tears of joy, being distracted by the world while on the path of meditation and his interpretation of The Lord’s Prayer amongst others. “I have never heard anyone so beautifully and playfully integrate and then dissolve the psychological problems which, for generations, have sapped our human energies.”
