More About the Author

Osho, known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, continues to inspire millions of people worldwide in their search to define a new approach to individual spirituality that is self-directed and responsive to the everyday challenges of contemporary life. The Sunday Times of London named him one of the '1,000 Makers of the Twentieth Century,' and novelist Tom Robbins called him 'the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ.' For more information about Osho and his work, please visit osho.com.


Osho's teachings defy categorization, covering everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing individuals and society today.

His unique "Osho Active Meditations" are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is easier to experience the thought-free and relaxed state of meditation. (Meditation -The First and Last Freedom, by Osho)

About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He has often characterized this new human being as "Zorba the Buddha" -- capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautam Buddha.

Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho's work is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology.

Osho has been described by the Sunday Times in London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by American author Tom Robbins as "the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ."

Format: Hardcover
If you are looking for a wonderful contemporary introduction to meditation in its many aspects, this is it! If
you are looking for a small gift book for your friend or beloved, again you've found it.

The eastern mystic Osho speaks of meditation in many
ways that may seem familiar--as the chapter headings indicate--as witnessing, silence, remembrance, awareness, relaxation, rest, understanding and transformation.

He also explains that it is not escapism, but rather
is playful, fun, creative, a delight, an experiment, a happening and living joyously.

There is no question that meditation is absolutely
needed in this modern age of incredibly fast and constant
change. We are all under pressure. To quote the author,
"How to relax this pressure? You will have to go deliberately into meditative moments....That will release new
sources of energy in him and he will be back in the world,
younger, fresher, more able to learn, with more wonder in
his eyes, with more awe in his heart--again a child." And
later, "When you have learned the art of being at rest then
you can be both active and restful together, because then
you know that rest is something so inner that it cannot be
disturbed by anything outer....Then that miracle happens
when you can remain at rest and in action together, simultaneously. That is the meeting of the sacred and the mundane,
the meeting of this world and that, the meeting of materialism and spiritualism."

There is something in this small gem of a book for
those who have never meditated, for those just beginning and
for those, like myself, for whom meditation experiences have
long provided most treasured moments.

Format: Hardcover
If you are looking for a definitive book about meditation why not get one from someone who has been rated as the most important enlightened mystic since Buddha (by a Tibetan Master , amongst others) ? Osho's words about meditation are simple, practical, down to earth guidelines, and suggestions, from someone who has looked at every aspect of the subject himself. Uplifting and easy to read, in plain English, with ideas you can apply in your life right away.
