Osho uses the lives and teachings of religious leaders and enlightened thinkers to involve the reader in a profound journey of spiritual discovery and wisdom. "When you hear about a Buddha or Mahavira or a Zarathustra they look like mythological figures, not historic. It appears they only existed in the dreams of man." Osho describes how their reality is in human consciousness and their effect is profound. When you read Osho's words, you feel as if he is speaking to you. His conversational style is fluid and engaging, and while his acute perception often comes as a delight and a surprise, his shrewd insights will stay with you always. Whether he is discussing a complex philosophy, or the teachings of a great mystic, Osho always brings a unique perspective and imbues the subject with his own distinctive irreverent, thought-provoking and inspirational insight.
Osho is one of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of our time. The Sunday Times has named him one of the "1,000 makers of the twentieth century"; the novelist Tom Robbins has called him "the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ". Nearly two decades after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers around the world.
