Publisher's summary

Nirvana has become an idealized word associated with the juxtaposition of a cult rock celebrity who died before his time and a vague new age version of Eastern religion. An altered state to be hoped for but likely unattainable, reinforcing that all too familiar uneasiness associated with never being able to have what we truly desire in life.

Osho masterfully brings this internal state of tension to the surface and, through the use of five beautiful Zen stories, examines, unravels, and reveals the meaning of nirvana. By absorbing without interpreting, making a decision without worrying if it is the right one, or surrendering to each moment, it is possible to come to a point where we simply drop through the manifestations of the ego. In that moment, living an ordinary life becomes an extraordinary delight.

The book for a new Humanity

If truly taken to heart, this book can change one's life into a blessing of the mundane to the profound. Osho has walked this path himself and claims to be no different from anyone else. Just a matter of seeing from awareness. He is the Buddha in us all, and we are the Buddhas in him!

Distracting background sounds

This production was unfortunate. I could not concentrate on the readers voice. He spoke in soft new age tones. This annoyed me. To make matters worse his voice was drowned out by the background noise production, vaguely naturalistic sounds reminiscent of rain on the roof and birds tweets.

Lovely

Just so much content in Osho talks. Content, way of expressing it is just so valuable. I loved it.

One of his best works

Nirvana is absolutely spectacular. I’ve listened to so many of his audiobooks and this is one of the best hands down. Beautiful insights

The Master at Work

Osho is not only a gifted speaker, he is a master psychologist, an intellectual genius, poet, and buddha, among many other things. In fact, what may describe him best is no-thing or his no-thingness. Osho's talks are all play; he is having fun. But at the same time he is performing a spiritual alchemy on his listeners. Osho uses many devices, or techniques, to engage the mind, while simultaneously deconstructing it. Osho takes his listeners on a journey wherever they are into the HereNow. Through masterful explanations of 5 Zen parables, diametric dissection and annihilation of questions from his audience with amusing anecdotes and jokes woven throughout,  Osho's style is a thing of beauty - or better yet no-thing - for at the core of all his talks lies a palpable silence. This is the silence of the buddhas, shared in words. Between and behind all his words is a deep emptiness, which is his real message. Yet this emptiness is also a fullness - a fullness of consciousness or awareness. It is indeed a paradox. But life is full of paradoxes, especially when it comes to spiritual truth. Semantics aside, these 10 talks are given in Poona in Osho's prime and are some of his finest.

Hypocrite

The person you are hearing in this book was the leader of a group of terrorists who committed acts of biological terrorism in the US. I have no idea why anyone would think this hypocrite would know anything about nirvana. I’m sad that I purchased this book and gave money to these people without knowing the full truth.
