033The 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
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.

034The 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
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.”

035From 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
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.

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
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.

037From Death to Deathlessness
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
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.”

039From 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
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.”

Content : Osho’s first words spoken after a period of three years of silence herald a completely new dimension to his work. It is as if he has drawn a sword and slices through the deceit of history. Man, his politics and so-called religion are all totally exposed. Responding to questions solely from his disciples, Osho talks on the psychology of a creed based on following; the question of belief in God; whether Osho is a messiah or not; the attitude of traditional holy men towards women; his understanding of the political mind-set; how he feels about Communism, why his sannyasins lead such a rich life, why their happiness is attributed to their being brainwashed or hypnotized, and many more. “You just don’t read Osho, you undefine yourself.”
