Publisher's Summary

Osho is known around the world for his pioneering contribution to meditation - the science of inner transformation - with the unique approach of his "Osho Active Meditations" acknowledging the accelerated pace of the contemporary world and bringing meditation into modern life.

Based on the Seven Points of Mind Training by the 11th-century Buddhist mystic Atisha, The Book of Wisdom removes the dust of tradition that has gathered around meditation, conveying the essential science and methodology of the practice with a freshness and spontaneity that is rarely found in contemporary spiritual works. The book is a guide for inner discipline and transformation that is also highly accessible, incorporating light, often humorous question-and-answer sessions between the author and his audience that help listeners make the practical connection between spiritual theory and meditation as a lifestyle.

In 28 talks alternating between commentaries on Atisha and responding to questions, Osho takes us into a world of wisdom.

An Osho classic.

Covers a full range of practical wisdom. And the jokes are great too. Well worth the price.

Now, even when I die, I'll have no regret

Osho at his best given discourses about Buddhism based on Atisha's sutras.

His interpretation is very inspiring and helpful for inner transformation.

Thanks for creating and distributing these

"The buddha said" was more captivating for me, but I don't feel like giving this less than 5 stars either way.

Heart wisdom for all ages

The heart of the Tibetan tradition cuts straight to the Heart of the Matter. Osho‘s insights are once again provocative, comprehensive (with references to a range of spiritual teachers and traditions including Sufi and Christian mystics and Zen master) and clear. Highly recommended for anyone wiling to approach the teaching of this controversial “spiritual contrarian” with an open and receptive heart and mind.When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. Enough for today ;).

Only if you have lots of worthless time

A ton of contradictions. Takes 10 minutes of repeating things to get a point across. Sorry, but no more OSHO for me. This was my first try given the other good reviews.

Peace, love, intelligence and humour.

Any additional comments?

Osho, perhaps a man with the greatest sense of humour I know, is something that no words can do justice to describe.

Consider me a sanyasin, an Osho follower. Everything he says speaks to me, I feel like I've belonged for the first time in my life. The theories Osho speaks of are exactly what I have always felt but not always had the opportunity to say. An incredible addition to humankind.

OSHO - Never born, Never lived, Never died. Existed on earth between 1939 and 1990.
