Content : Based on the anecdotes of Nansen, the poetry of Sekiso and the questions of a disciple, this series of talks is penetrated by Osho’s love for the radical revolutionary depicted in the courageous innovator Nansen and his insistence that the spiritual is not apart from the material, The Point of Departure. Challenging the reader to be a whole person, not denying anything, Osho continually hits us with the Zen stick of his wit, encouraging us to “transform everything, including everything in your spiritual growth.”

The appendix, Catharsis and Meditation: Steps on the Path, presents Osho’s reasons for cathartic techniques. “No one is more qualified to introduce the mystics than Osho, a man who stands out even in their exalted company.

085The New Dawn
Talks given from 18/06/87 pm to 04/07/87 pm, English Discourse series, 33 Chapters, Year published : 1989
Content : A many-faceted series of discourses in which Osho dismantles a great variety of questions from disciples. One asks : With the imminent possibility of global suicide isn’t it a paradox that all we can do is to sit silently? Another worries about the misuse of genetic science, and a third isn’t sure how to respond to the madness of living in the world. And there are many questions of the heart: about feelings of unworthiness; how to make the transition from loneliness; to aloneness and what we learn from love. Osho’s responses are applicable to everyone, everywhere, who is sincerely seeking to understand and to evolve. “Never before or after have I encountered anybody having such a harmonious and immensely creative view encompassing art, science, human psychology and religiousness. Certainly we would lack substantially without his vision of the new man.” Dr. A. Schleger, Ph.D., Institute of Technology, Switzerland
