Publisher's Summary

Humans have an inbuilt drive to search for their inner power and potentiality. This search is the search for life itself. We are here, we have life - but we don't know what life really is. We can feel our energy, but don't know where this energy comes from and to what goal this energy is going. We are that energy; we have glimpses of its true source and our connection to it, and those glimpses keep us going even when it seems we will never find what we are seeking - but still we do not know what that energy is.

An ancient Zen story symbolizes this search for the source of this life. Zen master Kakuan's story of The Ten Bulls of Zen is a teaching that uses 10 images, each representing a particular step on the journey of experiencing and understanding what it means to be a conscious and aware human being.

Osho takes us through this story and its lessons for the traveler on a journey into the inner world - that's what meditation is all about, according to him. But reaching the pure, uncluttered freedom of meditation is not the end. The circle is only complete when the seeker comes back into the marketplace of the world but as a transformed person.

Like a Zen teacher, Osho takes us into a timelessness and space - indescribable. This is a series that belongs in the ears of everyone who is on the search, beginning the search, or just thinking about the search.

Great Osho

It is not a structured book, just a collecion of Osho "lectures". Nevertheless, immensly valuable. I believe anyone will find here something to resonate with.
I also suggest reading Osho books!

Needs a different narrator and better audio

What was most disappointing about OSHO’s story?

I could not understand the narrator. Plus, the audio was muffled, not professionally done.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Heavy accent coupled with poor audio recording made it impossible to understand.

The search will give you answers and serenity

The more I listen to Osho, the more wisdom and utter truth I find in his words. I've already started noticing transformation in myself. Amazing book - that will bring you answers to a lot of your questions if you truly are on a spiritual search!

To the point

I have listened to several books by Osho. This one encapsulates much of the others in a clearer, shorter message.

Insightful...as always.

what more needs to be said about any of osho's teachings? Be you just beginning on your path or well advanced, there is always valuable insight to be gleaned from his words. I recommend.

How can I comment on osho's speech?

How can I say something when I know nothing? how can I have any opinion while I even don't exist? I just can say this man was awake and his beautiful voice is my music.
