Publisher's Summary

Written more than 25 centuries ago, the Diamond Sutra is the first text to record the Buddha's own teachings, and it remains one of the most popular. Osho comments in a series of talks on these sutras and brings Buddha's teachings into the 21st century.

One day, after the Buddha finishes his daily walk to collect alms, a senior monk steps forth to ask how he can best help humanity. Buddha responds, and thus begins a dialogue regarding the nature of perception.

In this series of talks, Osho offers his unique interpretation of the Buddha's words, writing in an easy, humorous, and conversational style that makes even the most complex ideas understandable.

A true teacher of the Buddhist texts

Osho has the ability to teach exactly what needs to be heard as a vehicle to enlightenment. I have never heard concepts and 'mind' explained in such ways. I would highly recommend this book to any spiritual seekers looking for truth.

OSHO at his Peak!

This is such an amazing commentary...
it touched the Diamond Sutra lightly but he talks about everything!
All teachings can be heard here if you don’t listen to the words...
It’s an empty audio, an empty book... there is no doctrine... just silence... enlightening...

The Diamond that cuts like a Thunderbolt! If you allow, OSHO will behead you! And help you to be reborn... lol...

Just quoting this beautiful talk... listen. Be still. Meditate.

Amazing

I’m at loss of words. This is brilliant.

You’ll probably enjoy it more if you have some Buddhism background, but really anyone could pick it up and benefit from it.

The Taste of Enlightenment

Along with the Heart Sutra, this is one of the most evocative and inspiring interpretation of the Dharma.

Osho’s insights about Buddhism are luminous.
