Take It Easy

780 p., Hardcover

Talks on Zen Buddhism 

In these delightful and playful talks, available for the first time in one volume, Osho introduces the mystery, the wonder, and the emptiness that is Zen. He uses the poetry of one of the most outrageous Zen masters, Ikkyu, to show the ways and methods a Zen master uses to permanently transform, rather than simply inform. 

Osho and Ikkyu’s whole message is about how to experience the essence of emptiness: that blissful state of no-mind where all old conditionings are gone and man is free just to be himself. As Osho speaks of Ikkyu, and answers people’s questions, he is also speaking of himself. As he speaks of who Ikkyu is, he is revealing more about himself. 

These talks can change the life of anyone who has an open mind. Osho’s words are a fire that burns away old enslaving concepts, and fears that have constricted people’s lives for millenia. He gives a fresh, new understanding of himself, and shows how each person can find the way to light his own path.

Tantric Transformation


Talks on The Royal Song of Saraha

In this second volume of Osho’s talks on Saraha’s Royal Song, we are given a detailed map of Tantra: inner man, inner woman; the meeting of man and woman; the transformation of sexual energy and other techniques.
The Tantra vision, founded by Saraha, is one of the most glorious visions ever dreamed of by man. Tantra is all-embracing, respecting each of us as individuals and the essential nature of our humanity.
In Tantra Vision 2, Osho explains the goal of Tantra: the experience of cosmic expansion and, ultimately, of divine wisdom. He describes the Tantra map of inner consciousness, including the "four seals" or locks that open in us as we move higher in meditation. Speaking with profound wisdom and compassion, Osho shows how he truly understands the fabric of our lives on earth, seeing both the splendor and despair of our Western ways, and the doubt, misery and guilt that are the legacy of our Hebraic-Christian religions. He encourages us to turn inwards, to expand to the uttermost and to learn the Tantric language of love that will finally bring us joy and happiness in life. This book is a very alive, concrete guide for exploration of our own energy, of our own inner space.

Tao-The Pathless Path

Paperback, 182 pages

In his commentaries on five parables from "The Lieh Tzu" Osho brings a fresh and contemporary interpretation to the ancient wisdom of Tao. Lieh Tzu was well known a Taoist master of the 4th century B.C., and his sly critiques of Confucius provide abundant opportunities for the reader to explore the contrasts between the rational and irrational, the male and the female, the structured and the spontaneous.

The chapters in this beautiful little paperback are selections from a longer series of talks given under the same name, with an additional chapter of responses to questions. If you feel drawn to the "watercourse way" of Tao, with its approach of let-go and harmony with nature, this is a book you will especially enjoy.

1. Who Is Truly Happy? - uses the discovery of a human skull on the roadside to probe into the question of immortality and how misery arises out of the existence of the ego.

2. A Man Who Knows How to Console Himself - looks beneath the apparent cheerfulness of a wandering monk and asks if there is really a happiness that endires through life’s ups and downs.

3. No Regrets - a parable about the difference between the knowledge that is gathered from the outside and the "knowing" that arises from within.

4. No Rest for the Living - uses a dialogue between a despondent seeker and his master to reveal the limits of philosophy and the crippling consequences of living for the sake of some future goal.

5. Best Be Still, Best Be Empty - discusses the differences between the path of will, the via affirmativa of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, versus the path of the mystic, the via negativa of Buddha, Lao Tzu and Lieh Tzu.

6. Following Torah, Open to Tao - responses to questions; how the Taoist worldview applies to the practical experiences of daily life.

The Book of Nothing

Hardbound, 296 pages

Talks on the Faith Mind of Sosan 

There is little known about the ancient Zen master, Sosan, yet with very few words he has revealed how a river finds its course, how a seeker finds his path without knowing. Step by step, Osho unlocks the meaning within Sosan’s verses, revealing the individual, tangible maps contained within every seeker of truth. Through this book the reader can be awakened to sense his own way forward. 

This is not a guide book filled with instructions on which turns to take, which decisions to make. It is a book in which Osho skillfully uses words to carve a path into the heart of meditation – a phenomenal journey that begins with the words on a page and ends in the most profound silence of The Book of Nothing: Hsin Hsin Ming. 


"Sosan’s book is so small, just like Isa Upanishad, and far more significant. When I say that my heart breaks, because I would like Isa to be the ultimate book, but what can I do? – Sosan has defeated it. Tears come to my eyes because Isa is defeated, and also because Sosan is victorious”.

    The Diamond Sword

    Hardbound, 240 pages

    Rediscovering meditation — the forgotten treasure of India

    In response to questions from individuals and members of the press, Osho speaks on the essential and timeless path of meditation — focusing on India’s ancient heritage of inquiry into transforming human consciousness, of going within ourselves rather than looking to the outer world for fulfillment and recognition.
    Set against the backdrop of his return to India after having been illegally deported from the United States, and after a subsequent “World Tour” where he was denied entry to 21 countries, Oslo uses those recent experiences to highlight his essential message for the whole of humanity — to grow in consciousness, to discover individual freedom and truth through tapping into our inner treasure of awareness.

    The Eternal Quest

    Hardbound, 245 pages

    Religiousness is the last luxury, says Osho. Western psychotherapy helps us adjust so we can live in “normal insanity,” but once all our material needs are fulfilled, something in us still aches for more – for freedom, expansion, bliss. The 120 questions and responses in The Eternal Quest are about this search, with all its peaks and pitfalls. Osho emphasizes how vital it is for us to ask genuine, basic questions if we want real answers, and has a mercilessly compassionate way of dealing with those who have not understood the point. Inspiring, profound and playful, this book covers everything from the science behind OSHO Dynamic Meditation to why we suffer in love and life.

    The Heart Sutra


    Talks on The Prajnaparamita Hridaya Sutra

    Discourses on the Heart Sutra, the Prajnaparamita Hridaya Sutra of Gautam the Buddha reveal his essential teachings: the merging of negative and positive, the insubstantiality of the ego, and the buddha-nature of all of existence. In his inimitable way Osho brings these archaic yet invaluable insights right to the doorstep of the contemporary inquirer. He also speaks on the seven chakras and the corresponding facets in man? the physical, psychosomatic, psychological, psycho-spiritual, spiritual, spiritual-transcendental and transcendental.


    "Treatises on Buddhism are often dry and reverential, if not tediously scholastic, and if Osho’s treatment is not canonical, it compensates by throbbing with life, humor, penetrating insight and the continual provocation to think for oneself." Guy Claxton, Author of Noises from the Darkroom

    The Journey of Being Human

    Paperback, 192 pages

    Is It Possible to Find Real Happiness in Ordinary Life?

    Man is a bridge, says Osho, between the animal and the divine – and our awareness of this dual aspect of our nature is what makes us human. It is also what makes us restless, full of conflict, so often at the crossroads of selfishness and generosity, of love and hate, frailty and strength, hope and despair. The Journey of Being Human looks into how we might embrace and accept these apparent contradictions, rather than trying to choose between them, as the key to transforming each twist and turn of life’s journey into a new discovery of who we are meant to be.
    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. The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on questions specific to our inner life and quality of existence, for example: Is it possible to have an authentic spirituality without a belief in God? What is meditation and how does it work? What can I do as an individual to make the world a better place?

    A Majority of One

    389 pages, HC, including DVD of an incomparable press interview

    Facing the most remarkable interviewee they are ever likely to meet, a few journalists are seen to flounder as they sense they are losing their grip on the proceedings. But many become fascinated and delighted by the realization that they are spending precious time with a unique and extraordinarily ordinary being who is sharing his inimitable vision of world events, human relationships, and the art of being a seeker whilst living in the thick of the challenges of the contemporary world.
    With his enlightened gift for repartee and some exquisitely timed insights, Osho transforms any attempts at shallow sensationalism into an opportunity for exchanges of a remarkable depth, and uses the opportunity to give worldwide exposure to his radical, far-reaching vision.
    In these times of information overload, when a daily newspaper can seem outdated before it reaches the shelves, the words in this book are as fresh and relevant today as they were on the day they were spoken. In fact, they continue to be far ahead of their time.

    Innermost Secrets of Consciousness 

    The New Alchemy: To Turn You On is a practical, detailed guide for those exploring meditation. Osho has a vast understanding of the steps and pitfalls along the way and the unique gift of communicating them directly and simply. 

    “Whenever you have found a technique, a way, retreat within, go within. Experiment with it there, in your subjectivity, in your heart. Experience it. Don’t just go on thinking about what meditation is. Do it! Only then will you know what it is.” 

    While the emphasis is on active meditation, Osho skillfully interweaves commentaries on Mabel Collins’ Light on the Path, to further support the seeker’s understanding. 

    “These are the sutras achieved by ultimate wisdom. They are deep and sometimes very complex, even contradictory, but they are the ultimate flowering of wisdom.”
