Not the book I expected from Osho. Its a collection of letters written by Osho to his friend. He has discussed the reality he felt. Good read!! But really not the best from Osho books list in my opinion.
I think Krishna by Osho will give me the feel I expected from books of Osho :)
This book is amazing..It travels with me everywhere I go..it constantly reveals lessons for me..You can open it up at any time randomly and pick a letter and you will receive some very potent and simple revelations
