Since I was a teen, I was a very philosophical being. And believe me, this book is for the intellectual open-minded person. It is amazing how Osho gets on dogmas and vanishes them with ease. It will show you how the heart isn't at fight with reason, although there are some things that exceed the power of logic. If you have an open spirit and a critic mind, and especially, a need for healing... If you know what it is to feel the tears flow endlessly on those lonely nights, this is The Book for you. I give you my word. Just don't project tension on the book to make it happen. Forget even about this opinion for the moment and read with an open heart.
Please feel free to contact me if you think I can be of further assistance.
Now I have read this books number of times, I read it once in a few years, everytime I find his it more profound and fresh. I consider this book a really precious!
It talks about the nature of Mind, one of the things one has to know before one starts to meditate is to know the nature of mind,thoughts; What is mind, thoughts? their very nature; It talks about simple things as action and activity. Osho explains giving examples what Tilopa is trying to say in mahamudra, he explains then comes to sutras. He explains each line in the sutras, it can be interpret the differently,Its like one realized master talks about another.
He explains mahamudra with great ease, it come naturally form him as being a realized master himself. He says most of our time is we spend on activity so when the time of action come, we cannot respond to that moment with our full awareness, because most of our energy is wasted in activity, and we have no energy left when time of action comes. So he explains what Tilopa is referring to "action" and "activity".
These disclosure were give to his desiples who were westerners. He explains them giving various examples, so that they can understand with ease.Read more ›
Osho never wrote. All his books are direct transcripts of his public discourses. His style is methodological, and although the writ capture some of his simple eloquence, it cannot reproduce his music and his silence. The audio of the discourses is available in various place and it's a real treat to here. Imagine this setting: tape hiss capturing silent moments, birds singing in the distance happily, hundreds of people sat in silence ... and the man himself, Osho, telling tales effortlessly and imparting wisdom gently as he drifts beautifully through Tilopa's Song of Mahamudra. It's something beyond ...
