Editorial Reviews
From Library Journal
Better known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, Osho was a controversial guru from India who attracted a large Western following in the mid-Seventies and Eighties. Although Osho rejects intellectual understanding as a valid approach to meditation, he considers one of the main benefits of meditation to be "intelligence: the ability to respond." Scorning religion and society as barriers to enlightenment, Osho fails to give credit to the traditional concepts he borrows from Hinduism, Zen Buddhism, Taoism, Sufi mysticism, and tantrum tradition. He presents smoking, shaking, laughing, crying, and sexual activity as meditative exercises that can lead students of meditation to inner freedom. Readers will find little of substance in this collection of discourses based on sloppy thinking, off-color humor, and gender stereotyping. Not recommended.

True Education

When one person is defeated and the other has won, we garland the one who has won and disregard the one who is defeated. This is a sign of a perverted mind. This is a sign of a violent and a wicked mind. After all, what is so great that makes you garland a winner and disregard the one who is defeated? Don't you see the diseased mind of the person doing this? Should there be love and sympathy for the man who is defeated or not? Or should we become full of respect for the winner?
