Publisher's Summary

Zen is not a theology, it is a unique phenomenon. Not easy to understand for a Western mind. Most religions exist around the concept of God. For Zen, the individual human is the goal - an end unto himself. So there is no concept of God in Zen.

Certainly those who have been brought up as Christians, Muslims, Hindus, or Jews, cannot conceive of what sort of religion Zen is. If there is no God, then it becomes atheism. It is not; it is theism to the very core - but without God. This is the first fundamental to be understood. Let it sink deep within you, then things will become clear. Zen is simple, and yet difficult. As far as Zen is concerned it is a simple thing, the simplest, because it is a spontaneous thing. But because of our conditioned minds, because of the insane world we live in - in which we have been brought up and have been corrupted - also very difficult.

Existence is paradoxical. I call Zen the path of paradox. It is paradoxical. Intuition is paradoxical. It is not linear. It is multidimensional. Consciousness versus unconsciousness.

Osho introduces us in this series to world of Zen. He is not a teacher - he is a Zen master.
