«Era uma vez...» Estas três palavras são, muitas vezes, os primeiros passos de uma profunda caminhada espiritual. Todas as filosofias, ciências e religiões não passam de histórias que o homem conta a si próprio para explicar a sua existência. São estas histórias que dão sentido à vida e a tornam mais bela; as histórias transformam a vida numa caminhada, numa viagem mágica. ...more

Almost finished, but so far it hits close to home and his messages ring true for me. One thing you will ask yourself midway through the book, "why am I even reading this when life is the true teacher?"

I got to say... I think I'm finished with these Osho books. This last one was a struggle to get through and I almost quit on the book a couple of times. It's not that it's bad - on the contrary, if you have never read any of Osho's work, then this book will blow your mind! However, his books have a tendency to bleed into each other and feel redundant because he goes over the same stuff over and over and over. There are only so many ways he can explain these concepts without rehashing stuff. Ther ...more

Beautiful stories and life lessons. Never to be read in a hurry. Read, live it & read again. Every chapter is a story worth living..

Osho is a big voice on the subject of spirituality and I think someone interested in such stuff should try at least one book by him.

I didn't read "The man who loved seagulls" just because it came to me, but also because it contained stories, myths, and I love those. I can safely say one of my favourites is exactly the last one. It preaches laughter and life, detachment from it, but living. It's about the Buddha Hotei, who went through villages with only one bag of sweets, giving it to children.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is mostly a gathering of transcriptions of talks that Osho gave as lessons to his followers and maybe some who were not followers.

What I liked about this book are the stories that Osho tells and his explanations
of these very same stories.

For those who might want a taste of the book, I include the following quote from the preface:

“God must love stories so much; he is a creator of myths himself, he must love stories. He is the first one who started the whole

Excellent book! Very inspiring and deeply touching at many parts. Osho's commentary is often more wonderful than the original parable itself. From Zen to Hasidism to Christianity, he covers many religious traditions of the world. I highly recommend reading this book, just reading it is a benediction!

Best book ever! It's not a self-help book, but a change of perspective that will make you understand everything related to existence.
