103The Razor’s Edge
Talks given from 25/02/87 pm to 12/03/87 am, English Discourse series, 30 Chapters, Year published : 1988
Content : This book tells a true story. A story of great love and immense trust between disciples and their master as they move together along a golden path which is both dangerous and ecstatic. This path is the razor’s edge. “Osho’s position as an important mystic and philosopher is supported by an international following and a host of publications. His work is that of all great religious leaders, bringing God to man…. His lively appeal is jokes, limericks, verse and tales, combined with traditional religious themes.” Library Journal, USA.

104The Rebel
Talks given from 01/06/87 am to 25/02/87 am, English Discourse series, 35 Chapters
Content : A handbook for the man of the future, The Rebel is a comprehensive guide to Osho as a planetary visionary. In his responses to seekers’questions he dissects virtually every institution and traditional belief of society, and proposes a truly radical approach to overthrowing the past in order to make way for the future. A fiery exploration of the essential characteristics found in the authentic seeker—the rebel. “Osho is a thoroughly modern man as much at home with Marx and Engels and humanistic psychology as with the mystical traditions of the East. Indeed, he uses Marx and Maslov, Plato and Heidegger, Freud and Beckett and Lenny Bruce, Playboy jokes as well as Zen and Sufi teaching stories, to make telling critiques of political and religious, psychological and sexual orthodoxies.” Washington Post. USA (James Gordon).

105The Rebellious Spirit
Talks on Zen, Talks given from 11/12/74 am to 20/12/74 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1976
Content : Zen is an experience, not a dogma, and an experience which transcends the confines of the rational mind, moving into the super-rational arena of our consciousness. Through words, Osho creates a sense of existential silence from which all words manifest. At the same time, he shines the light of understanding on many inner barriers to growth and self-realization. “Without question the most inspired, the most literate and the most profoundly informed speaker I have ever heard anywhere. Everything he says in his philosophy of life has the unmistakable ring of truth: a new experience.”

107The Revolution
Discourses on Kabir, Talks given from 11/02/78 am to 20/02/78 am, English Discourse series, 10 Chapters, Year published : 1979
Content : “Up to man there has been evolution,” Osho says. “From fish to man there has been evolution. But from man to a Buddha, from man to a Christ, from man to a Kabir, it is not evolution, it is revolution—the revolution I call it, the only revolution.” Osho rekindles these ten fiery songs of Kabir, verses which shocked 15th-century seekers. In Osho’s hands, Kabir’s vision is equally if not more mind-shattering.

108Rinzai : Master of the Irrational
Talks on Zen, Talks given from 23/10/88 pm to 31/10/88 pm, English Discourse series, 8 Chapters

Content : Rinzai, who brought Zen from China to Japan, is truly a master of the irrational, a Zen master who sticks his tongue out at one disciple and who created the shout as a device to shock the mind. Osho continually reminds us that it is only a question of time, that everyone is going to become a buddha. He encourages the reader not to believe, but to experience, to have the trust that “if so many people can become enlightened, there is no reason why I cannot.” In this small volume he also comments on the timeless paintings in words of the famous haiku writer, Ikkyu. A gem for everyone from the curious to the seasoned seeker…
