Maturity: The Responsibility of Being Oneself

Paperback, 192 pages

In a culture infatuated with youth, and determined to avoid old age at all costs, this book dares to raise a question that has been all but forgotten in the age of Viagra and cosmetic surgery. What benefits might lie in accepting the aging process as natural, rather than trying to hold on to youth and its pleasures all the way to the grave?

Osho takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up rather than just to grow old. Both in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, he reminds us of the pleasures that only true maturity can bring He outlines the ten major growth cycles in human life, from the self-centered universe of the pre-schooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age.

A unique sense of humor runs like a thread through the book, along with a profound compassion and understanding of how easy it is to be distracted from the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives - which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy.

Making meditation immediately accessible for everyone, Osho suggests a variety of techniques specially designed for today’s seeker. He also provides detailed descriptions of each stage of his own revolutionary meditation technique, Dynamic Meditation.

Moral, Immoral, Amoral

Paperback, 208 pages

“I don’t say cultivate morality; I say become more conscious, and you will be moral. But that morality will have a totally different flavor to it. It will be spontaneous; it will not be ready-made.” Osho

In a global world, we are in search of universal values—values based on a contemporary understanding that unifies us as human beings beyond the divisions of religions, nations, and race. In Moral, Immoral, Amoral, Osho speaks directly to this contemporary search as he introduces us to a quest for values that make sense in the world we live in—a quest that goes far beyond moral codes of behavior and comes from an inner connectivity and oneness with existence.

The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on the most important questions in the life of the individual. Each volume contains timeless and always-contemporary investigations and discussions into questions vital to our personal search for meaning and purpose, focusing on questions specific to our inner life and quality of existence.

Moving into the Unknown

Hardbound, 308 pages

On Buddha’s Sutra of Forty-two Chapters

“Ecstasy is such a great ‘Aha!’ that you are completely dissolved into it. It becomes your very song, your celebration, your dance. Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved. Life is a mystery to be lost in, not a problem to be handled.” Osho

In this second volume from The Discipline of Transcendence series, Osho continues to talk on the 42 earliest-surviving Buddhist sutras. By using the word discipline, Osho carves away the conventional, well understood, meaning of the word, so that the reader is able to move from what he already understands, into territory he may never have explored before.

Osho encourages the use of awareness to reveal the natural discipline that comes from listening to oneself. Simply reading this book will inspire you to new revelations about your own life.

PREFACE
Awareness and discipline are the most fundamental things for a seeker. If you discipline yourself without awareness, you will become a hypocrite. If you discipline yourself without awareness, you will become a zombie, a robot. You may not do harm to anybody, you may be known as a good man or even as a saint, but you will not be able to live your real life, you will not be able to celebrate it. There will be no delight in it. You will become too serious; the playfulness will be gone forever. And seriousness is a disease.
 
If discipline is without awareness, then you will enforce it and it will be a violence, a rape of your own being. It will not give you freedom; it will create more and more, bigger and bigger, imprisonments. The discipline is right if it is based on awareness. The discipline goes completely wrong, becomes poisoned, when it is done not with awareness but by a blind, believing mind.

So the first thing is the whip -- the awareness. And the second thing is the rope -- the discipline. What is the need of discipline? If you are aware, it seems awareness is enough. Eventually it is enough, but not in the beginning -- because the mind has deep patterns, and the energy tends to move from the old habits and old patterns. New channels have to be created.

You may have become aware, but that itself will not be enough in the beginning -- because the mind, finding any opportunity to move in any old pattern, immediately slips, in a split second. It takes no time to become angry. By the time you become aware, already anger has flashed. Later on, when your awareness has become total, when your awareness has become an absolute with you -- before anything happens, awareness is always there, as an a priori; if anger comes, before anger awareness is there; if sexuality possesses you, before it awareness is there -- when awareness has become a natural, spontaneous thing, like breathing, even in your sleep it is there, then discipline can be discarded. But in the beginning -- no. In the beginning, when awareness is settling, discipline will be helpful.

Nine Sutras

Nine Sutras

Hardbound

Osho talks for the first time on his own Nine Sutras. Opening boundless new dimensions to the meaning and significance of the word yoga, he illuminates its vast scope and takes us way beyond what may well be our limited and limiting understanding of it. Using modern scientific knowledge to help us experiment with and experience our inner world, Osho gives us an in-depth introduction to his famous Dynamic meditation and takes us on a timeless journey into the beyond, home to ourselves.
"I have told you these Nine Sutras, not so that your knowledge may increase, not so that you may become more knowledgeable I have said all these things in the hope that, perhaps, you may get nudged a little, and you may take off on some journey." Osho

Nirvana-The last Nightmare

Hardbound

Why does Osho say that nirvana, enlightenment, is a nightmare – and not only a nightmare but the last nightmare? Because as long as we keep hoping for some future paradise, we are sacrificing the present moment for a moment that will never come. Our desire to achieve nirvana becomes the very obstacle to its happening.
Osho challenges us to wake up and stop dreaming. He exposes the tricks and habits of our minds that keep us from being in the here and now, living this moment totally.
As he retells five beautiful Zen stories and relates them to our lives today, we begin to discover the art of being present and joyful in the simple ordinariness of life.

No Water, No Moon

New Edition, Hardbound

Talks on Zen Stories

Osho uses these Zen stories to illustrate that holding onto the unessential is the barrier to our inner nature; losing needless attachments is a way to realization. In the title story, the nun Chiyono is carrying a pail of water and gazing at the reflection of the moon in the water. The pail starts to fall apart. She tries desperately to hold it together but fails.
The water pours out, and the reflection of the moon disappears. As the bucket falls apart, so do her mental constructs, and she realizes her inner self. These Zen stories on the surface seem absurd, but the meaning of Zen cannot be stated in words; it can only be implied by parable.
Osho employs these parables to elucidate the foibles of common thinking and to suggest ways to become aware of who we really are.

Notes of a Madman

Notes of a Madman

Hardbound

Osho creates a loosely woven tapestry of vivid, humorous and touching impressions and glimpses giving the feeling we are having a personal meeting with the master. This small volume is one of three unique books from talks given in the unlikely setting of his dental sessions. In this atmosphere, Osho speaks in a poetic way on a wild and wonderful range of subject. It is a rare and intimate glimpse of enlightenment. He speaks on danger, beauty, madness, freedom, the fool. He tells us that fear is the only enemy of women. He weaves haikus of his own, and haikus from Zen mystics, with a loved Tibetan mantra: "Of the mortal and the immortal, of darkness and light, of the changing and the unchanging...Om mani padme hum."

Nowhere to go but in

Hardbound

In this book Osho answers a wide range of seeker’s questions, speaking on themes such as the nature of enlightenment, the seeking of spiritual powers, the relationship between meditation and love; on love and marriage, marriage and sex, sex as a meditation and Tantra.
In explaining a meditation technique called "tratak," Osho says it is "an experiment in just looking. It can be done under the open sky, in nature -- looking without mentally processing the images on the eye. In a short while you will find that the outside sky has entered you; that the sky outside and the sky within you have merged to become the great sky, all boundaries have disappeared."

Reviews:

"Osho is an enlightened master who is working with all possibilities to help humanity overcome a difficult phase in developing consciousness."
The Dalai Lama

"Osho is a mystical giant, a flowering of a unique intelligence and one of those rare humans ex-pressing himself with joy."
Paul Reps, author of Zen Flesh, Zen Bones.

Philosophia Perennis 1

272 pages, Hardbound


About Philosophia Perennis, Vol. 1 In this book of talks on the Greek mathematician and mystic, Pythagoras, Osho declares that had Pythagoras been listened to humanity’s history would have been totally different. Pythagoras is a man close to Osho’s heart, with his understanding that materialism and spirituality - East and West, body and soul - exist together. Pythagoras understood that are not opposing forces but complementary facets of a harmonious whole. In this series of talks Osho delves into the insightful verses of Pythagoras and responds to seeker’s questions.

Philosophia Perennis 2

Talks on Pythagoras, the Philosopher and Mystic

In this book Osho sheds light on the ancient and little-known teachings of Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician and mystic.
This is the second collection of talks in the series that Osho titled Philosophia Perennis, meaning the perennial philosophy, the timeless laws of existence. Far from being a dry, academic center of learning, the “mystery school” of Pythagoras was alive with music, dance, celebration and meditation. Osho clarifies how the combination of these seemingly polar opposites creates a unique meeting of religion and science. While introducing the reader to the wisdom of Pythagoras, Osho also brings his insight to topics including psychoanalysis, education, politics, revolutions, sex, and religion. Be prepared for a mind-blowing read.

Power, Politics and Change incl. DVD

Paperback + DVD, 224 pages

 

Power, Politics, and Change takes on the conventional wisdom that “power corrupts” and proposes instead that those who seek power are already corrupt: Once they attain their goal, their corruption simply has the opportunity to express itself. That’s why even those who seek power in order to bring about radical change so often fail, despite their best intentions.
Osho looks at where this “will to power” comes from, how it expresses itself not only in political institutions, but in our everyday relationships. In the process, he offers a vision of relationships and society based not on power over others, but on a recognition of the uniqueness of every individual.
Power, Politics, and Change includes an original talk by Osho on DVD. This visual component enables the reader to experience the direct wisdom and humor of Osho straight from the source. The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on the most important questions in the life of the individual. Each volume contains timeless and always-contemporary investigations and discussions into questions vital to our personal search for meaning and purpose, focusing on questions specific to our inner life and quality of existence.

Reflections on Kahlil Gibran´s The Prophet

Hardbound, 768 pages

Osho loves Gibran, but, unlike the millions before him who have just extolled the beauty and splendor of his words, he sees not only where Gibran soars and takes flight, but also the times where his words fall again to the earth – still beautiful, but ultimately missing an existential depth. In Reflections, Osho examines Gibran’s poetic explorations of life – and goes further. He looks at whether Gibran is “a mystic of the highest order,” simply a poet “who speaks in words of gold” – or perhaps an extraordinary mixture of the two. Throughout this book, Osho comprehensively trounces the so-called religious and philosophical approaches to life. All that is of worth is to be found, not in the extraordinary, but in the ordinary; not in fantastical ideas of the other world but in this very world that we find ourselves in. In short, this book shows that making a simple yet utterly basic shift in our lives will awaken the silence in our beings and bring joy into our every moment. “Kahlil Gibran… The very name brings so much ecstasy and joy that it is impossible to think of another name comparable to him. Just hearing the name, bells start ringing in the heart which do not belong to this world. Kahlil Gibran is pure music, a mystery, such that only poetry can sometimes grasp, but only sometimes.” Osho

    From Sex to Superconsciousness

    For the first time, the profoundly simple and compassionate Osho insights into this most compelling of human energies are collected into one volume in Sex Matters. The book begins with selections from the worldwide bestselling volume of talks first published under the title, "From Sex to Superconsciousness." And continues with a broad sampling of Osho responses to heartfelt and real-life questions from young and old, men and women, parents and teachers, therapists and lovers. The sanest and most life-affirmative perspective you’ll ever find.

    Review:

    "Every once in a while, a book comes along that, like a marvelous invention,makes you say, ’Why didn’t somebody do this long ago!’ Sex Matters rediscovers the human, and rewards rather than punishes one for being in that state. It is a wondrous revelation that will give peace, confidence and courage all at the same time."
    -Eugene Kennedy, author of The Unhealed Wound: The Church, the Priesthood, and the Question of Sexuality

    Don’t you think there’s a fear of overindulgence if there is no repression?
    What is pornography, and why does it have so much appeal?
    What type of society can develop individuals in whom the subconscious mind becomes just utilitarian and easily dispensable?
    After eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge, Adam and Eve, for the first time, became aware of their nakedness and felt ashamed. What is the deeper meaning behind this feeling? And, secondly, it has been said that the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge is knowledge of sex. What is your view about this?

    Illusions and Realities
    The West seems to be obsessed with sex. People are stuffed with endless techniques and porno images. Why, in all this time, are people still stuck and unable to move into a more Tantric approach?
    Are all desires the same? What is my desire for love?
    What is the Zen approach to sex? The Zen people seem to have a neuter gender, or asexual aura about them.
    Wilhelm Reich says "All patients are genitally disturbed. They must become genitally healthy. That means we must find and destroy all pathological attitudes which prevent the establishment of orgasmic potency." As a therapist and one receiving therapy, is that statement factual and a good foundation on which to build?
    Why has sex always been included with anger, jealousy, cruelty, greed, possessiveness, violence, but never with fun, joy, love, playfulness, friendship and other great things that you have associated it with?
    What is the relationship between sex and death?
    Why do so many people get so uptight and embarrassed about even simple physical contact like hugging?
    Can you say something about AIDS?

    Part III: Neither Original Nor Sin
    The Understanding in Practice


    To fall in love is so easy. Why is it so difficult to fall out of love? So many discussions, tears, fights, fears.... I don’t want to hurt the person I’ve been with, because it’s not that there is no feeling. I’m so confused. Can you say something?
    Jealousy feels like such a huge problem in relationships - my own, and the relationships of most of the people I see around me. Can you talk more about it and where it comes from?
    What do you mean when you say, "Meditate over it"? Please explain it in relation to my problem of jealousy.
    Why do I feel fear when somebody comes close to me?
    Why do women like to be attractive to men when they also resent their sexual desires?
    My husband loves me so totally that he has never thought of another woman in his life, and we have lived together almost twenty-five years. I cannot believe it although it is true. What do you say about it?
    The other day you spoke of homosexuality, and let us laugh at the idea of all men walking arm-in-arm through the streets and calling each other "darling." Laughter is good, of course, but sometimes it has an edge of mockery. As a gay person, I felt put down at that moment. Please will you talk about how gay people or blacks or Jews or any other minority might receive and deal with such laughter.
    I love my boyfriend very much, and our relationship is very good when we are together. But whenever I see that he seems to be interested in some other woman, even just to talk to her, I feel so jealous. I don’t want to make him feel like I’m interfering with his freedom, but it’s hard to hide these jealous feelings. What can I do?
    I don’t really enjoy sex very much, and my boyfriend feels disturbed by it. Looking into it, I’ve become aware that I have never really been in a relationship where I felt secure with someone. I think I always used sex to keep someone, and pretended that I enjoyed it.
    I certainly have not transcended sex. Why then, each time I go into it, does it somehow not feel right?
    Although you keep telling us to enjoy sex and to have fun, I often find myself feeling serious and not very alive when I have sex. Somehow I’m afraid to just have fun. I don’t understand it. Can you explain?
    I want to move deeper into sex with my girlfriend. But I feel my orgasms are very weak, and it happens too soon.
    I seem to be really stuck in my relationships with men. There’s just always so much tension and fight, and I almost never have an orgasm. I don’t know what to do about it.
    After I divorced my first wife, I felt really disgusted with sex. And I’ve been unable to have an orgasm since then, except after smoking marijuana. That’s still the case, even though I am really in love with the woman I’m with now.
    How long does this stupid sex continue to haunt one? I am getting on sixty and it is still there.
    I am getting old and losing all interest in women. What should I do?
    Should children be told all the facts of life, irrespective of their age?

    Revised Edition, Hardbound

    Reflections on the Poetry of an Enlightened Woman, Sahajo

    This is an extraordinarily rich and touching book, because we are given the chance to savor the words of an enlightened man, commenting for the first time on the poetry, heart, and being of Sahajo - an enlightened woman from eighteenth-century Rajasthan. Speaking on Sahajo’s "sutras of love" and answering related questions, Osho describes, often very humorously, different paths and pitfalls of the female and male seeker - with beautiful insights into the differences between the female and male ego - and what happens to both women and men as they approach enlightenment.
    Osho makes this available for the present day woman to see into her very nature and use the inspiration of this enlightened mystic to retain her femininity and grace on the path.

    Sufis: The People of the Path Vol. 1

    Hardbound

    Jokes - paradox - parables - wisdom - absurdity - all to shake the reader out of his intellect and into the innocence of the mystic. Osho distills the essence of Sufism for the contemporary man, not to inform the reader about the state of mysticism but to create the situation in which we discover the mystic within ourselves.
