Osho books don't need to be reviewed. I guess it's a waste of time to do so. Very deep concepts with easy language. Highly recommended

This book was the first OSHO book i had ever read... I was randomly drawn to it while i was traveling Thailand at a small bookstore, it gave me such a different perspective on life and was a huge stepping stone in my journey of self discovery and path towards spirituality. Would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for a very real and straightforward perspective on life.

As much as I love these Osho books, I fear I may have reached a point when they are starting to feel redundant. Many of the passages in this book are duplicated word-for-word in other books by Osho, but not only that, the general message of the book is the same as well. This book has been helpful in refreshing my memory of some of the more important life lessons Osho elucidated on in previous books, but nothing more than that. I would still recommend it, though, to any unfamiliar with his work, ...more
Hoje terminei este livro pela segunda vez, ou seja li a tradução do livro em português: 'Destino, Liberdade e Alma.' Julgo que os livros de Osho têm certa sabedoria, sem estar de acordo com tudo o que diz. E as piadas que tem no livro não são muito engraçadas, a meu ver. Acho, contudo, que a mensagem central de este livro é que é importante fazer meditação para estar mais centrado e nisso sem dúvida tem razão o Osho.
Some ideas are extraordinary, very interesting and disturbing, others are just strange, I definitely found something that was of help... What I didnt like - Osho kept repeating certain ideas many times.
