“These techniques will not mention any religious ritual. No temple is needed, you are quite enough of a temple yourself. You are the lab; the whole experiment is to go on within you. This is not religion, this is science. No belief is needed. Only a daringness to experiment is enough; courage to experiment is enough.
These 112 methods are for the whole of humanity-for all the ages that have passed, and for all the ages that have yet to come. I will go on describing each method from as many angles as possible. If you feel any affinity with it, play with it for three days. If you feel that it fits, that something clicks in you, continue it for three months.
Life is a miracle. If you have not known its mystery, that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it.” ―Osho

the answer really depends on what you expect to get out of it. Most books mentioned in the Quora thread were trying to provide general truths or expose beliefs, some entertainment, some knowledge, some - help you in this aspect or the other. Also, consider that the person who is making the choice has read at least a couple hundred books in their lifetime…but imagine if you haven’t? Would you REALLY choose Agatha Christie or Sophie Kinsella? What do you really want out of your life? some basic job/entertainment ratio? Riches? Easy life with no drama? or, vice versa, big drama? imagine yourself BEFORE all those books you’ve read and all that wisdom you acquired…. what would you really want out of your life? How would you want to live it?
This is just my perspective, and my ultimate wish in this life is liberation, thus the only book that I would want to read should be written by an enlightened master who has reached that state of being (ultimate liberation) already. The original text should be without edits (e.g., the Bible has lost a lot of wisdom over the centuries of re-writes and being played with), and should contain the actual technique, information on how to achieve what I strive to achieve, not just philosophical discourse that leads nowhere and only makes my mind believe that it gained some valuable knowledge or solved some temporary problem. So it should be a manual of sorts, a roadmap. I don’t need to learn the history of the world, or play with my intellect for ultimate liberation; nor do i need to get entertained. I need to be told what I need to do to reach the goal, by someone who has already reached that same goal.
The Book Of Secrets by Osho is such a book. So far, I haven’t read any other book more valuable than this one, and I’m a bookworm. The general description of this book is wrong: it’s not just about tantra techniques; it contains meditation techniques from all the different paths to enlightenment from different mystery schools around the world - Osho’s biggest gift to humanity.
I have read many books on yoga, meditation, kulundi, charkas and eastern philosophy. Osho writes in a way that is very clear, and easy to understand some of these difficult topics. He is very controversial, however after reading only a few chapters so far, I believe he is right on with his message.
