Publisher's Summary

Sufism is the mystical dimension of the Islamic faith. Osho clarifies the Sufi approach to religiosity, which is to become part of the mystery of existence by living meditatively, being total and transcending experience itself. Osho distills the essence of Sufism, not to inform you about the state of mysticism, but to create a situation in which you can discover the mystic within yourself. These remarkable discourses are original, live recordings made during Osho's extemporaneous daily talks to audiences of disciples and visitors at his meditation retreat in Poona, India. His talks were, and continue to be, central to his work as a mystic trying to find ways to share his experience. And as you listen to this great teacher, you too will enter a state of meditative awareness that will bring you to a new understanding of this ancient pathway into the wonders and mysteries of existence.

Osho is an enlightened mystic whose spontaneous talks to disciples and friends have been transcribed and published in more than 650 books in 35 languages worldwide.

    "Enjoyed this"

    I would disagree with the other reviewer. I enjoy Osho's teachings and this audio program. The sound is a little off as it was recorded outside. Listening to this program makes me think of possibilities of how to view the world.

    "About Osho more than Sufism"

    I wish I had Googled on this title before buying it. "Osho" is the syncretist mystic Rajneesh, of the 95 Rolls-Royces and the interesting developments in Antelope, Oregon in the 1980's. He was not in any strong sense a practitioner or teacher of Sufism; if you search on his name in Audible you'll find similar "Meditations" on Buddhism, Zen, Taoism, etc.

    On this particular program, he spends lots of time saying how all religions are stupid, how Sufism is what all religions would like to be, how only by turning off one's critical faculties and jumping into the unknown by surrendering to one's teacher (i.e. by becoming one of Rajneesh's "sunnyas") can one become truly free, and other stuff that did not particularly appeal to me. There's also some more appealing but not all that deep stuff about looking for solutions by accepting and being open to the nature of the problem and so on; pretty much standard New Age fare.

    If you're looking for an introduction to, or a program about, Sufism as it is usually conceived, you definitely don't want to start here! If you're curious about Osho, do Google around a bit first.

    (One more note: I don't know if it's just bad mic placement or if he really talks like this, but for the entire program there's a loud shrill hissssss at the end of nearly every sentenceSSSZZSSSZHSHSHSH. It's pretty annoying.)

    "Good Introduction to Sufism"

    If you are in doubt to purchase this audiobook listen to Osho on youtube, there a numerous videos on his discourses.

    Osho is a spiritual master and awakened being, he has an explanation for everything. I find is voice sooting to listen to and he gives a comprehensive introduction to Sufism - a topic I knew nothing about before.

    Each time I relisten to the audiobook I pick up new words of wisdom and this is definitely worth a listen for anyone interested in spirtuality.
