This is not a book, it is a sacred text.
Great master take on from other great master and go beyond him.
I am not sure if I will be able to express my joy, that this sacred text had helped me to rediscover something that I had but forgot.
It is the work that has came from very ordinary human existence, but is certainly beyond any other work human existence has ever known. It surpasses the most intellectual of all understanding. It is so ordinary that one may overlook it.
It contains the wisdom of al

Commentaries on 10 parables of The Chuang Tzu; one of the important books in Taoism. Refreshing and enlightening. I don't necessarily subscribe to all the author said, however, he does very good job in expounding the philosophy. Recommended as companion reading to Taoism.
I found it a little difficult to read, and didn't always agree with Osho's interpretations, but there is much to gain from sorting through it for those jewels of wisdom you can apply to life. I would recommend it to others. Just don't try to rush through it.

Timely material for that period of my life when I read it. Osho insight and commentaries are informative, interesting and humorous.

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

“The longer a person has been dead the greater is the tradition ... If Buddha is alive you can barely tolerate him. ... You cannot believe this man has known the ultimate because he looks just like you ... Hungry he needs food, sleepy he wants a bed, ill, he has to rest – just like you ... That is why Jesus is worshiped now and yet he was crucified when he was alive. Alive, you crucify him; dead, you worship him.” 18 likes
