Publisher's Summary

Moving beyond the usual interpretations of this classic Chinese text - that of using it as an indicator of what to do next or attempting to predict the future - Osho is using the Tao Te Ching as Lao Tzu intended: to ignite the flame of individual awareness and insight. His commentaries on these seven verses burn through every idea we may hold about ourselves until we can see with the same crystal-clear light as Lao Tzu.

Tao, like Osho, is the way of wholeness: not dividing or denying anything, simply remaining choiceless and aware. You will find yourself listening to this series as if it were a waterfall; as you listen, you will come to understand the emptiness that puts us in touch with the eternal and makes bliss and ecstasy possible.

Life exists through the tension of the opposites

Inspiring and beautiful discourses given by Osho on the classic verses (sutras) of the Tao Te Ching.

A great Osho experience!

Loved it. Must listen for everyone! Osho's talks helped me realise a lot of things and a lot of meaning.

Creepy Guru

The subtle way to love happiness and truth begins awful and falls down from there in going forward. The author/narrator is apparently dead, so in a way I have found happiness knowing this.

Tao

Any additional comments?

Whateveer you are looking for in an audiobook, it should include at least one talk from Osho, arguably the most prolific and profound spiritual teacher of our time. This book is a fascinating edition to my collection, with Osho talking us through the genius Tao approach to life founded by Lau Tse.

Osho is unique, his message powerful and I urge anyone reading this to try one of his books, this would be a great start. When you're finished here and ready to step things up a gear, try Osho: The book of Wisdom. This is 46 hours long and would perhaps be better received after you've tried something a bit shorter, like this book.

Either way, just try sitting back and opening your mind to Osho. Incredible things will happen.
