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!

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.

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.
