HardboundOn the Songs of the Indian Mystic Kabir
Kabir was a 15th-century Indian mystic whose poetry and teachings are beloved by Muslims and Hindus alike. He is also said to have been the mentor of Guru Nanak, founder of the Sikh religion. Some say that he lived for 120 years, and history records that he died near Varanasi in 1518.Kabir is a poet, a weaver, a husband and father — enlightened and yet an ordinary man. His poetic songs tell of the ecstasy and the pitfalls on a seeker’s journey on the path of love. Osho describes Kabir as one of the greatest mystics ever born and dedicated five series of talks to Kabir’s work.Chapter 1: Love Is the Master KeyChapter 2: So Far, So Good Chapter 3: Home Is Not Far Away Chapter 4: Religion Is Individual Flowering Chapter 5: I Sing the Glory of Forms Chapter 6: The Inner Trinity Chapter 7: A Harmony of Love and Renunciation Chapter 8: Freedom to Choose Chapter 9: The Song of Love Chapter 10: Please Wake Up
Osho begins from where Western psychology leaves off. Beyond Freud and Jung, beyond the Human Potential Movement, to the psychology of enlightenment, of buddhahood. In these talks Osho reveals his vision of a New Man a man who embraces all aspects of life from the mundane to the sacred, and of the creation of a climate in which that new man can realize his ultimate potential. Response to questions from seekers cover a multitude of topics including the nature of meditation; sex, love and prayer as the three essential steps to the divine; destiny; why Westerners are attracted to Eastern religion and philosophy; the significance of kundalini yoga; dream psychology and the seven energy bodies.Reviews:

HardboundTalks on Adi Shankara’s Bhaj Govindam
Osho has spoken many times of Adi Shankaracharya, the enlightened mystic of eighth-century India, as someone who traveled across India arguing, debating and defeating all the renowned scholars, theologians and so-called religious leaders who were turning the inner search into a mental exercise, an academic discussion. But here we are introduced to a different Adi Shankaracharya - one who can sing in his song of ecstasy and dance his joy in life. His popular song, written in Sanskrit, is sung throughout India and is known as Bhaj Govindam.As he comments on these verses and answers related questions Osho shows us yet again, his vision of the New Man, the whole man - joyous, silent, ecstatic; repressing nothing, watching everything.Chapter 1: Always Sing the Song of the DivineChapter 2: Sowing the SeedChapter 3: The Search for NirvanaChapter 4: Every Step Is the DestinationChapter 5: The Bondage of HopeChapter 6: The Great TranscendenceChapter 7: A Song of LifeChapter 8: This World Is a SchoolChapter 9: The Essence in LifeChapter 10: Just One Moment...
HardboundTalks on The Royal Song of Saraha
An absorbing book about the relationship between Saraha, an affluent young Brahmin, and a lower-cast arrowsmith woman - he as disciple and she as his Tantric master. These revolutionary talks on "The Royal Song of Saraha" are "...not the composition of a poet, but the realization of a mystic." Through his characteristically penetrating insights into previously insolvable paradoxes of life, Osho reveals how the Tantra experience will help free us from the destructive Hebraic-Christian dualism that has crippled our bodies, minds and hearts, and has condemned as evil almost everything we do.Osho offers crystal-clear answers to questions and dilemmas we could never understand - even if we had dared to ask about them - and gives us a new perspective, a new way of looking at life and a new way of living in harmony with existence...for Tantra is not an intellectual proposal, it is pure experience. "You may not have even heard the name of Saraha, but Saraha is one of the great benefactors of humanity. If I were to count on my fingers ten benefactors of humanity, Saraha would be one of those ten. If I were to count five, then too, I would not be able to drop Saraha."Reviews:
