His books are not written but are transcribed from recordings of extemporaneous talks given over a period of thirty-five years.

“Experience life in all possible ways --

the more experience you have, the more

Osho

Osho

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.

Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.”
Osho
