Underlying all meditation techniques, including martial arts-and in fact underlying all great athletic performances-is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that Osho calls awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives.

According to great masters...more

If you want to fully understand the purpose to life and meditation, this book is an absolute keeper. A great book by a great man, he might have been dead for over a decade but his words are still as relevant today as before.

This book is great on the idea of witnessing and watching your own actions. Osho is a wonderful teacher and I am so happy I came across this book.
It is such an extraordinary book which written by on of the most influential philosophers in twenty first century. You will be shocked many times, you will feel like if you have not learned anything in this life. Osho will show you how to be aware, alert and live your moment as it comes, and get rid of ego tricks that make you a prisoner of the past or the future which not yet come...
You will enjoy reading it....
extremely deep for a short book one of oshos best . take your time with it you wont be let down

Ja turot rokās akmeņus, tu domā, ka tie ir dimanti, es neteikšu, ka tev jāatsakās no šiem akmeņiem. Es vienkāršī bildīšu: "Esi modrs un paraugies vērīgāk!" Ja tu pats redzi, ka tie nav dimanti, vai vajadzīgs no tiem atteikties? Tie paši izkritīs no tavām rokām. Ja tu vēl joprojām vēlies tos nēsāt, tad tev būs mazliet jāpiepūlas. Taču ilgi tu to nespēsi. Ja reiz būsi izpratis, ka tie nav lietderīgi, ir nenozīmīgi, tu tos aizmetīsi.


Vienīgais, kas jāiemācās, ir vērīgums. Vēro! Vēro katru darb...more

"Cuanto mas consciente se vuelve uno, mas se recuerda a si mismo, con mas cautela actúa, mas alerta esta, mas heridas empiezan a desaparecer, hay menos brotes de ira, menos odio, menos celos y menos sentimientos posesivos". Osho
A strong and much needed book in today's stressful living conditions.

Here's the complete review of Awareness - The Key to Living in Balance, by Osho .

In this book, Osho teaches the essence of meditation and living in the present moment. He shows how, with practice, we can avoid being entrapped in the vicious circle of our thoughts. He explains the techniques for relaxing our mind and body, and letting go of all tensions. He points out the difference between religion and spirituality, between ch...more
The provokes your mind and keep your mind from wandering to wonder, The best book who wants to explore what is truth and happiness

Took me forever to read because it's so hard to get your head around what it has to say.

It's all so new, and well, dense, but in a good way, on a lot of levels.
Mohit Misra
Osho one of the last great mystics shares his knowledge with his characteristic style ,one of deep understanding along with a brilliant sense of humor.
There are more than a few moments when I wonder is Osho was misanthropic. Many other moments, absolute guru-ic genius.
