For a person who speaks so much, and whose fame has spread all over, having read a few quotes or mentions here and there; I was struck by how little wisdom I found in his book. It may not be the best book of his, after all this is the only book I ever read for Osho.

But this book was full of nonsense. I found him to be a hater of religions... but what I couldn't approve is that he condemns a religion - especially Christianity- based on the acts of people who claim to be Christians: like Hitler fo

Positive energy for challenging times. Here's the idea: political revolution gets us nowhere because the new group in power fears that others will revolt in the same way, so therefore the revolutionary party self-protects its own power, inevitably. Osho even criticizes Ghandi’s peaceful revolution in India because despite the highest of intentions the same thing happened even there: the new people in power didn't have anything better to offer, as evidenced by the consequences. Revolutions also f ...more

If you want insight into the human condition, especially social and religious institutions, read OSHO's lectures in this collection. If you want insight into the contradictory nature of spiritual leaders, look at OSHO's life.

This book is a sizable and pointed collection of lectures on the nature of revolution, including failures and successes, and on analyses of the philosophical constructs behind revolutions of note. OSHO's personal belief is that change can only arise through autonomous develo

Leer a Osho es como leer mi propia mente. Leer a Osho es sentir que alguien más piensa-siente lo mismo que yo. Leer a Osho abrió las puertas de mi mente, nunca me obligó a cambiar mi pensar, si no que me hizo analizar el suyo, extraer lo mejor y construir un pensar nuevo.

La lectura difícilmente es rápida ya que analizas y al final piensas: "Es verdad, su punto de vista de verdad puede funcionar". Concuerdo en muchos aspectos con Osho, sobretodo en cuando a la religión. Pero algo nuevo fue la exp

O livro na sua totalidade é bom, no entanto existe por vezes um linha de argumentação ou de ideias fraca, ou por vezes, uma perda de consistência. Mas, é preciso ter em conta que o livro não é mais do que uma selecção de textos das transcrições feitas dos diálogos de Osho. E por sua vez existem elementos que não temos em conta. Um texto pode ser corrigido inúmeras vezes enquanto o diálogo é unico naquele momento.
Não obstante, existem ideias interessantíssimas com novos pontos de vista e diferent

One of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, Osho defies categorization - reflecting everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. His books are not written but are transcribed from recordings of extemporaneous talks given over a period of thirty-five years. Osho has been described by ...more
