A Cup of Tea

Hardbound


A beautifully bound collection of 365 letters written by Osho to his disciples and friends, during the time he was travelling in India from the 1950’s through the early 1970’s. With less than a half dozen exceptions, personal names have been removed from the text to reveal more clearly the universality of these inspirational messages.

Each letter is a gem of insight. The subject matter is as multi-faceted as the human search for truth, and covers everything from the difficulties in love and relationships to the challenges of understanding the nature of mind and reality. Osho often uses stories and parables to illustrate his points, which makes the text very clear and accessible. Anyone drawn to truth will treasure this book - the perfect bedside companion, to be savored one cup at a time. Those who wish to understand Osho’s unique approach to life will find the book to be an excellent introduction to the wisdom of the extraordinary man. And all those who are on the path of enlightenment will find encouragement and inspiration within its pages.

Above all - don´t wobble

Hardbound, 318 pages


"I go on answering your questions, your problems, and I go on solving them knowing well that you have none. You can ask me then why do I go on answering you? I can simply say that this is useless. But then you won't be able to understand.
You give me a problem, I give you a solution. You ask me a question, I give you the answer. I become part of the game. If you are interested in playing the game, I will play. By and by you will become aware of what you are doing. And remember, it is only your time that is wasted, not mine, because now I have nothing to attain; so nothing is wasted, only your time.
Once you understand this, then you drop the problems, then you start enjoying and celebrating. Rather than thinking, dance; rather than thinking, sing; rather than thinking, go for a long walk, swim in the river."

These recorded evening meetings give the phenomenon of enlightenment a contemporary, personal focus. One by one, disciples and visitors sit in front of Osho, alone or as part of a therapy group, to receive his individualized advice on their questions and life experiences.

160 p., Paperback, with DVD included

Today, humanity is caught up in the mad complexity of the mind and there is an urgent need to rediscover simplicity and innocence. Here, contemporary mystic Osho brings to life the inherent and timeless wisdom of traditional Zen stories, showing that Zen is a way of dissolving philosophical problems, not of solving them — a way of getting rid of philosophy, because philosophy is a sort of neurosis. Zen is for those intelligent enough to understand the limitations of the intellect and ready to recognize the significance of intuition in the world of mysticism.

And Now and Here

Hardbound, 654 pages with CD

Beyond the Duality of Life and Death

Most of us look for security in our relationships, in our choice of living and working conditions, and in our finances. Underlying this search for security is a deep, instinctive fear of death, which continually colors our lives and drives our focus outward, toward survival. But we also have a longing to turn inward, to relax deeply within ourselves, and experience the sense of freedom and expansion this brings.

With this book we can start exploring our inner world without fear. Osho debunks our myths and misunderstandings around death and invites us to experience our eternal inner space – now and here – through guided meditations at the end of the first chapters.
One of these meditations has been recorded with music and is included as a CD with this book.

Called Relaxing the BodyMind Meditation it is a gentle yet profound process and technique that can be used again and again to deepen our experience of awareness.

Autobiograhy of a spiritually incorrected Mystic

Paperback

Ten years have passed since, in the words of his attending physician, Osho prepared for his departure from the body that had served him for 59 years "as calmly as though he were packing for a weekend in the country." This volume is a recognition that the time has come to provide a historical and biographical context for understanding Osho and his work. Who was this man, known as the sex guru, the "self-appointed Bhagwan", the Rolls Royce Guru, the Rich Man’s Guru and simply the Master?

Drawn from nearly 5000 hours of Osho’s recorded talks, we hear the story of his youth and education, his life as a professor of philosophy and years of travel teaching the importance of meditation, and the true legacy he sought to leave behind: a religionless religion centered on the act of meditation and the teaching of "Zorba the Buddha", a celebration of the whole human being.

OSHO is one of the most provocative spiritual teachers of our time. In the 1970’s he captured the attention of young people from the West who wanted to experience meditation and transformation; A decade after his death, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers around the world.


Reviews

Booklist:
"Osho’s posthumous autobiography affords a delightful glimpse into the life of one of the most outrageous twentieth-century spiritual leaders. Consisting of anecdotes that Osho told during his many lectures and classes, the book has a conversational tone that well conveys the sometimes infamous guru’s dynamic personality as it offers a sampling of his thoughts on meditation, enlightenment, sex, money, education, and the evolution of consciousness."

"Osho was not afraid to tackle the world’s major religions, pointing out inconsistencies and hypocrisy where he found them and simultaneously drawing together their best aspects into a synthesis grounded in meditation. Osho also answers some of the criticisms leveled at him for his seemingly outrageous behavior and his iconoclastic tendencies. He proves a fascinating man: a prolific writer and lecturer, highly educated, and deeply passionate about his own search for truth. Whether or not one is interested in Osho’s teachings or in the controversies surrounding his movement, his autobiography is entertaining, insightful and for some, perhaps, even enlightening."

"The New York Times" calls Booklist "an acquisitions bible for public and school librarians nationwide." It is the review journal of the American Library Association, and recommends works of fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, reference books, and media to 30,000 institutional and personal subscribers.

Awareness: The Key to Live in Balance

Paperback, 190 pages


Most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers. Never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do. At work we are always "multi-tasking" - planning our tomorrows before we have even begun our todays, reading e-mail while talking on the phone, worrying about what is left undone on the to-do list as we take notes in a meeting that produces more to-do’s. And in our personal relationships, we have all experienced moments when we have lashed out in anger, or found ourselves suddenly in a tangle of misunderstandings without quite knowing how we got there - "I did it in spite of myself," or "I don’t know what came over me." So unaware of our own inner processes that the path between inner feeling and outer expression is shrouded in darkness not only to others but also to ourselves. At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness - or awakening, to use another term - in extraordinary circumstances. On the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, time seems to stop and one is suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Or in moments that touch us deeply - welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, or being with someone at the moment of death. Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centered and free - at work or at play, alone or in relationship, in the marketplace or on the mountaintop, in every aspect of our lives.

In this very special series of questions and answers Osho talks on the death and enlightenment of his own father, which occurred at this time. He also shines his unique light on subjects as diverse as science and meditation, personality and essence, homosexuality, witnessing, and silence. “He left the world in utter silence, in joy, in peace. He left the world like a lotus flower – it was worth celebrating. And these are the occasions for you to learn how to live and how to die. Each death should be a celebration, but it can be a celebration only if it leads you to higher planes of existence.” Osho

Belief, Doubt and Fanaticism

Paperback, 192 pages

Is It Essential to Have Something to Believe In?

In Belief, Doubt, and Fanaticism, Osho brings his unique and often surprising perspective to the religious, political, social and economic forces that drive people into opposing camps, fanatical groups, and belief systems that depend on seeing every “other” as the “enemy.”
As always, the focus is first and foremost on the individual psyche and consciousness, to identify the root causes and hidden demons of our human need to belong and have something to “believe in.” 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 fo rmeaning 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 beter place?

Beyond Enlightenment

560 pages, Hardbound

 

Whatever you may have thought or read up until now, these talks will take you further. They are not about enlightenment, rather words spoken by a man who has known enlightenment – and left it far behind. Through his responses to the questions of people from all walks of life, Osho explores the subject from the inside, revealing the inner workings of a mystic. What does enlightenment mean? – spiritual awakening, discovering the truth about life? Or is it less defined, just a formless sense of something to work towards on a journey of personal exploration? In this book one starts to have a glimpse that enlightenment is something achievable by anyone ready to take the jump here and now. And yet, while it is the peak of all beautiful, blissful experiences, it is still an experience. So what is beyond that, when one goes beyond individuality to the universal, dissolving one’s separation from existence…?

“Beyond enlightenment there is no experience at all, because the experiencer has disappeared. Enlightenment is not only the peak of experience, it is also the finest definition of your being. Beyond it, there is only nothingness.” Osho

Talks in Uruguay

Covering topics ranging from therapy, hypnosis and the limits of Western psychology; sexuality, love and relationship; society, religion and politicians; the mind, conditioning and meditation; other mystics, including Gurdjieff, Buddha, J. Krishnamurti and Mahavira, Osho leads us through an immense, multidimensional existence, available to us all, beyond the narrow confines of the mind, beyond psychology; in consciousness.
This is a big book – worlds within worlds – in questions and answers.

“The people who will go beyond mind will create the new man, the new mind. And the most special thing to be remembered about the new mind is that it will never become a tradition, that it will be constantly renewed. If it becomes a tradition it will be again the same thing.
The new mind has to become continuously new, every day new, ready to accept any unexpected experience, any unexpected truth…just available, vulnerable. It will be a tremendous excitement, a great ecstasy, a great challenge.”
Osho

...Happiness and Misery

360 p., Hardcover

22 cm X 14 cm

Talks on the Shiva Sutras Everyone is searching for happiness, says Osho, but because they are looking in the wrong direction – outside – no one ever really finds it. Real happiness, bliss, can only be found inside. It can be reached by learning the “knack” of dis-identifying with the mind.
This book on the ancient wisdom of the Shiva Sutras explains how to do this. These sutras will challenge and disturb people’s ideas about how life can be lived, but they also reveal how bliss is already hidden within the states we all experience daily: waking, dreaming and sleeping.
He shows how to dis-identify from the desires and attachments of the mind that trap everyone during this life, and pull them into the next. “The beginning of being human happens only when we get out of this vicious circle called mind.”

Books I have Loved

Hardbound, 242 pages

In a series of private talks, Osho talks on his favorite authors and books, and in a completely different way than is his public discourses. "Books I have loved" documents a ‘Zen koan’-like situation: While having treatments on his teeth he talks. Devageet, the dentist, Amrito and a nurse are meant to be the note-taker, but without using a notepad. Osho asks the three to write afterwards from their memory what they remember to have heard, while one is doing the writing and the others are doing the editing....

CELEBRATING THE JOY OF LIFE, LOVE AND MEDITATION 

In this collection of responses to questions, Osho captures his entire message: “My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love.” Here, he also introduces his vision of the new man who embodies the teaching – Zorba the Buddha. Into one identity, he brings together the lusty nature of Zorba the Greek and the silent stillness of the Buddha. The earthy Zorba and the ethereal Buddha are melded to become a silence which can sing and dance. The jokes are numerous and hilarious. Come and hear the message; meditate, love – and laugh!

    Compassion-The Ultimate Flowering of Love

    Paperback, with DVD included

    In this tenth volume of the popular Insights for a New Way of Living series, Osho examines the nature of compassion from a radically different perspective. He points out that “passion” lies at the root of the word, and then proceeds to challenge assumptions about what compassion really is. Many so-called acts of compassion, he says, are tainted by a subtle sense of self-importance and desire for recognition. Others are based in the desire not really to help others, but to force them to change. Using stories from the life of Jesus, Buddha, and the world of Zen, Osho shows how the path to authentic compassion arises from within, beginning with a deep acceptance and love of oneself. Only then, says Osho, does compassion flower into a healing force, rooted in the unconditional acceptance of the other as he or she is. Compassion includes an original, 120 minute talk by Osho on DVD. This visual component enables the reader to experience the direct wisdom and humor of Osho straight from the source.

    Courage - The Joy of Living Dangerously

    Paperback, 192 pages


    Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain -- where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to find the courage to face them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure, and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. The book begins with an in-depth exploration of the meaning of courage and how it is expressed in the everyday life of the individual. Unlike books that focus on heroic acts of courage in exceptional circumstances, the focus here is on developing the inner courage that enables us to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears -- in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here.

    Creativity - Unleashing the Force Within

    Paperback, 192 pages

    A creative person is one who has insight, who can see things nobody else has ever seen before, who hears things that nobody has heard before -- then there is creativity. As Osho points out in the preface to this book, historically the creative person has been all but forced to rebel against the society. Stability, conservatism, and "following the rules" have been desirable qualities for centuries, and these qualities were reinforced by the family, the state, and educational institutions of society. Furthermore, creativity has tended to be very narrowly defined as artistic talent, and therefore an option only for a chosen few. Nowadays, the situation has dramatically changed. In today’s world, the ability to respond creatively to new challenges is demanded of everybody from corporate CEOs to "soccer moms." Those whose toolbox for dealing with life includes only what they have learned in the past from their parents and their teachers are at a distinct disadvantage both in their relationships and in their careers. Making the switch from imitative and rule-bound behavior toward creative innovation and flexibility needs a profound change in our attitudes about ourselves and our own capabilities. Creativity is a handbook for those who understand the need to bring more creativity, playfulness and flexibility to their lives. It’s a manual for thinking "outside the box" -- and learning to live there, as well.

    Review:
    "Osho’s words are like brushstrokes of poetry. Each stroke is a beautiful expression unto itself. And the overall work is that of a master. Osho is a painter of words that touch the heart, mind, and soul."
    Peter Max.
