Publisher's Summary

This series of talks is on one of the most esoteric treatises in the world. It will show you the way to become more than the body and the way to bloom - how not to remain a seed but to become a golden flower. What, in India, they call the one thousand-petalled lotus, in China they call the golden flower. It is a symbol that represents perfection, totality. Moreover, the flower represents the actualization of the potential - the beauty, the grandeur, the splendor of being.

This treatise, The Secret of Secrets: The Secret of the Golden Flower, is very ancient, possibly one of the most ancient treatises in the world - at least 25 centuries old. But 25 centuries can be traced back very easily. And this treatise is also, uniquely, a great synthesis of all the great religions. The Bible belongs to the Christians, the Talmud belongs to the Jews, the Vedas belong to the Hindus, the Dhammapada to the Buddhists, the Tao Te Ching to the Taoists. But this small book, The Secret of Secrets: The Secret of the Golden Flower, belongs to no one in particular, or it belongs to all. It is heavily based on Taoist teachings, a flowering of the Taoist approach to life and existence. But it is not only that. Zarathustra has played a role; his teachings are incorporated within it. Buddhist teachings have also been integrated, and a certain esoteric school of Christians, the Nestorians, have played their part. It is one of the most synthetical approaches.

These 31 talks will introduce you to a world of consciousness, meditation, and a transformative space - it's a pure joy to listen to Osho.

    "Final Teaching"

    Osho is one of a kind spiritual genius. His lectures completely destroy ignorance and directly goes to the heart of it. Ultimately, you either get it or you don't. That's how it is meant to be and not have a lukewarm understanding. Humanity is trapped in shame and guilt and Osho brings out all human repression & taboo to the forefront to dissect and explain where exactly the problem lies.

    "The Golden flower is opening"

    A beautiful and inspiring interpretation of one of the most mysterious Taoist texts: The Golden Flower.

    Osho had a superb intelligence and unparalleled communication skills to reveal the intricacies and secrets of the Golden Flower to the western people.

    "A must read for All"

    So true, so clear, so close to the heart, delves in the minutest details of people's feelings including pleasures, love, addictions, orgasm etc., and last it's so unbiased (except for politicians and priests of all religions).

    "The complex made simple"

    as is typical of Osho, he can take complex Concepts and distill it down into a form that is digestible to all. His passion comes through and the last lecture is a powerhouse!
