Osho is known around the world for his pioneering contribution to meditation – the science of inner transformation- with his unique approach, “Osho Active Meditations” which acknowledge the accelerated pace of the contemporary world and bring meditation into modern life. Osho continues to inspire millions of people worldwide in their search to define a new approach to individual spirituality that is self-directed and respond to the everyday challenges of contemporary life. Osho guides us on a profound inner journey, progressing from the merging of negative and positive to the non-existence of the ego and the arrival at our own inner Buddha. Osho brings the spiritual experience into daily life.
You cannot explain what sweetness is to the man who has never tasted sweets. You can bring all your articulateness, but you cannot explain a simple thing, sweetness. The only way is to offer him some sweets. That’s what the masters have been doing all along. Rather than telling you what sweetness is, they offer it to you to taste. They themselves are offering, their own presence for you to taste it.
Osho, the enlightened master who has over 600 books to his name, speaks not in his usual lecture hall to thousands of seekers, but in an intimate and eccentric setting to only four disciples. He tells stories and gives poetic and profound descriptions of books that had helped him. Osho’s words are as fire that burns away old enslaving concepts, setting man free from the fears that have constricted his life. He gives the reader a fresh, new understanding of himself and shows him the way to light his own path.
Not believing, but only experiencing, said Osho in His inspiring books. Meditation is not work; it is a play. Meditation is not something to be done to achieve some goal – peace, bliss – but something to be enjoyed as an end in itself. The festive dimension is the most important thing to be understood – and we have lost it totally. By festive, it means the capacity to enjoy moment to moment all that comes to you.
According to Osho, “The culture that will arise in the future, if it is truly to be for the evolution of mankind, will be a balance of science and religion. This culture will be a synthesis of religion and science. It will not be only religious or only scientific: it will be either scientifically religious or religiously scientific.” His unique perspective encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology.
