Publisher's Summary

Humans have an inbuilt drive to search for their inner power and potentiality. This search is the search for life itself. We are here, we have life - but we don't know what life really is. We can feel our energy, but don't know where this energy comes from and to what goal this energy is going. We are that energy; we have glimpses of its true source and our connection to it, and those glimpses keep us going even when it seems we will never find what we are seeking - but still we do not know what that energy is.

An ancient Zen story symbolizes this search for the source of this life. Zen master Kakuan's story of The Ten Bulls of Zen is a teaching that uses 10 images, each representing a particular step on the journey of experiencing and understanding what it means to be a conscious and aware human being.

Osho takes us through this story and its lessons for the traveler on a journey into the inner world - that's what meditation is all about, according to him. But reaching the pure, uncluttered freedom of meditation is not the end. The circle is only complete when the seeker comes back into the marketplace of the world but as a transformed person.

Like a Zen teacher, Osho takes us into a timelessness and space - indescribable. This is a series that belongs in the ears of everyone who is on the search, beginning the search, or just thinking about the search.

Great Osho

It is not a structured book, just a collecion of Osho "lectures". Nevertheless, immensly valuable. I believe anyone will find here something to resonate with.
I also suggest reading Osho books!

The more I listen to Osho, the more wisdom and utter truth I find in his words. I've already started noticing transformation in myself. Amazing book - that will bring you answers to a lot of your questions if you truly are on a spiritual search!

Osho at his best

So glad I got this audio book. Osho’s renderings on the spiritual classics are truly amazing. So glad that these audio books are available with Osho actually narrating them.
What a gift to humanity.

Osho is a true master. Greatful for his teachings. I recommend this book and all his other ones. I have currently read about 5 of his books and all of them are very gratifying. listening to his voice when I am cooking or driving and not someone elses puts a smile on my face

How can I comment on osho's speech?

How can I say something when I know nothing? how can I have any opinion while I even don't exist? I just can say this man was awake and his beautiful voice is my music.
