Here readers find short text pieces for daily meditations and inspiration to start the day. Simply start each day by reading a suggested passage for that morning. The extracts in this book, along with its companion volume, Last in the Evening, are selected from intimate one-on-one talks with Osho. This book, with passages specially selected for the morning, is invaluable for those already familiar with meditation, as well as the newcomer to the world of the inner mind.

Last in the Evening gives you a different option to end your day in a more meditative way, to give you a taste and space of meditation which you can carry through the night. Enjoy the opportunity of sitting with yourself, being with yourself, available to your own subjectivity at the end of your day. Simply end each day by reading a suggested passage for that evening. The extracts in this book, along with its companion volume, First in the Morning, are selected from intimate one-on-one talks with Osho. This book, with passages specially selected for the evening, is invaluable for those already familiar with meditation, as well as the newcomer to the world of the inner.

OSHO: Meditation: The First and Last Freedom

The First Upgrade to Meditation Since Buddha’s Time

In thisMeditation F&L_cover essential meditation handbook for the 21st century, Osho turns the traditional notion of meditation practice on its head. Meditation: The First and Last Freedom shows that meditation is not a spiritual discipline separate from everyday life in the real world. In essence, it is simply the art of being aware of what is going on inside and around us. As we acquire the knack, meditation can be our companion wherever we are-at work, at play, at rest.

Meditation contains practical, step-by-step guides to a wide variety of meditation techniques selected by and/or created by Osho, including the unique OSHO Active Meditations which deal with the special tensions of contemporary life. Recognizing that it’s almost impossible for most people these days just to stop and sit silently, these meditations – including the Osho Dynamic Meditation and Osho Kundalini Meditation – begin with one or more stages of vigorous physical activity. This brings our physical and mental energies to a peak, so that the following silence is easy — leaving us alert, refreshed, and newly energized.

Newly revised and resized into a handy portable format, Meditation is the perfect text to begin or continue exploring the joys of meditation.

OSHO: The Chakra Book

Chakra Book-OSHOThe Chakra Book: Energy and Healing Power of the Subtle Body

In this volume, Osho gives an overview of the Eastern science behind the energy centers in the human body that are sometimes known as chakras. It is a science that underlies traditional Chinese medicine, Indian Ayurveda, and the practice of kundalini yoga, among other disciplines that recognize the deep connection between mind and body. Osho also shows how these same principles apply to human psychological growth and maturation and the evolution of consciousness.

OSHO: In Love with Life

In_Love_with_LifePerhaps only a contemporary mystic like Osho could truly understand a Western philosopher and mystic like Nietzsche. In Love with Life Osho shares his understanding of both Nietzsche the man and of his seminal work, with extraordinary clarity and relevance.

The result is an enchanting journey through a world where life is celebrated, not renounced, and where timeless truths prevail over the lies and distortions that continue to cripple our efforts to become healthy and whole.

In ten selected chapters Nietzsche is rescued from any misunderstanding and appropriation of his work, and Osho adds dimensions to his work.

“I have chosen to speak on a few fragments which may be helpful to you, for your spiritual growth.”   – Osho

In his preface to Ecce Homo, Friedrich Nietzsche says: “With [Thus Spoke Zarathustra] I have given mankind the greatest present that has ever been made to it so far. This book, with a voice bridging centuries, is not only the highest book there is, the book that is truly characterized by the air of the heights — the whole fact of man lies beneath it at a tremendous distance — it is also the deepest, born out of the innermost wealth of truth, an inexhaustible well to which no pail descends without coming up again filled with gold and goodness.” Here, the reader learns much about the mysterious and revolutionary Persian mystic Zarathustra (Zoroaster), whom Nietzsche chose as a spokesperson.

OSHO: Dang Dang Doko Dang – The Sound of the Empty Drum

DangDaongDokoDang-OSHO

We released this week a new edition of this ‘Osho Classic’ in print and eBook format.

Osho sees Zen not as a historical spiritual tradition, but as the future of a humanity that has matured to the point that people no longer need religions controlled by “priesthoods” and based on fearful superstitions that cripple people’s innate intelligence and divide them from one another. This book offers a deeper understanding of the underlying differences between Eastern and Western approaches to religion and the nature of consciousness. It’s a beautiful introduction to a world where each individual has the capacity for an instant and profound understanding of existence, and a rebirth of the trust in life that each of us are born with. “Dang Dang Doko Dang” represents the sound of the drum beaten by a Zen master in an existential lesson for a disciple. As well as symbolizing the poetic quality of Zen, the title represents the special flavor of this collection of Osho’s commentaries on well-known Zen stories. This volume is part of the “OSHO Classics” series and also includes Osho’s responses to questions about the meditation technique of Zazen.

OSHO: No Greater Enjoyment than that of Sharing!

IMG_1559“There is no greater enjoyment than that of sharing something. Have you given something to somebody? That’s why people enjoy giving gifts so much. It is a sheer delight. When you give something to somebody maybe valueless, may not be of much value but just the way, just the gesture that you give, satisfies tremendously. Just think of a person whose whole life is a gift, whose every moment is a sharing – he lives in heaven.” – Osho

What Are Kids Reading These Days?

 Reading Osho – The First Mentioning of Jaden and Willow Smith in Their New York Times Joined Interview

Smith - 3

When kids confront or – should we better say shock society – with an independent approach to life, with self-confidence and strength, they are immediately catching everybody’s attention, especially when they are celebrities like Jaden and Willow Smith. Since they recommended Osho to a whole young generation, parts of the press and international media have focused on this and here they go again surprising the media when the very first lines in a recent New York Times interview draw the attention again to Osho. 

“Q. What have you been reading?
A. WILLOW: Quantum physics. Osho.
A. JADEN: “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and ancient texts; things that can’t be pre-dated.”

The international press and media is of course quick in analyzing and judging the two teenagers as as “bizarre” “confusing” and “insane” which makes such a good point of what Osho states when he says:

“When a child enters the school he is far more intelligent than when he comes back from the university. Those twenty years will destroy much that was immensely valuable. The real diamonds will be lost and he will carry just words, jargon, theories, knowledge. He will have sold his intelligence and he will have brought home just dead knowledge, dead weight, dead wood, and he will live with that knowledge his whole life. Still, we don’t have an educational system which helps people to become intelligent.

That’s why all over the world in all the universities there is great ferment, great rebellion. It is a good sign: it simply indicates that the young people of the world are becoming more and more alert that what is called education is not education but a kind of conditioning, a hypnosis. The older generation tries to mold the mind of the new generation. The teacher is just an agent of the older generation. The teacher is respected by the older generation because he is the agent: he corrupts the minds of the new, but the corruption is done with such skill that you will not become aware unless you are really alert, watchful.”

“As a person grows old, he finds himself getting out of touch with the new generation that is growing. The fault is not of the new generation, the fault is of the old man who has nothing but memory, and memory belongs to the past and the past is no longer there. The new generation is more responsive to the present – that creates the gap. The old generation always wants old answers, old scriptures, old saints; the older they are the more true.”

“The old generation has not to teach what it has learnt; the old generation has to help the child to be more intelligent so that he can be capable of spontaneously responding to the new realities which will be coming. The old generation cannot even dream about them, what those realities will be.”
