3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive and in-depth discussion of the human energy centers known as chakras. The book offers a unique understanding of how these centers, also referred to as "subtle bodies" can be identified and experienced, along with how they are related to personal transformation and health. In this volume, Osho gives an overview of the Eastern science of the subtle energy centers in the human body that are sometimes known as "chakras." It is a science that underlies traditional Chinese medicine, Indian Ayurveda, and the practice of kundalini yoga, among other disciplines that recognize the deep connection between mind and body. Osho also shows how these same principles apply to human psychological growth and maturation, and the evolution of consciousness

Meditation : the first and last freedom : a practical guide to meditation by Osho( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this essential meditation handbook for the 21st century, Osho turns the traditional notion of meditation practice on its head. Meditation: the first and last freedom shows that meditation is not a spiritual discipline separate from everyday life in the real world. In essence, it is simply the art of being aware of what is going on inside and around us. As we acquire the knack, meditation can be our companion wherever we are-at work, at play, at rest." --Publisher description

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book offers a radically different approach to life and to seeing the world. Short excerpts from Osho are selected to inspire, to provoke, and to trigger a self-reflection that leads to change. It is easy to read but perhaps difficult to digest...in essence, it is a meditation book!"--Back cover
The God conspiracy : the path from superstition to superconsciousness by Osho( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not believing, but only experiencing, says Osho in this inspiring book, is a way of finding truth and meaning. While Nietzsche's declaration that "God is dead, therefore man is free" was an incredible step in understanding, he argues, it is in itself a negative solution and does not bring freedom. Simply removing God is not enough. In "The God Conspiracy, " Osho offers a solution beyond Nietzsche -- meditation, a direct connection with existence itself. Here he shows how Zen and meditation allow us to find meaning and significance, creativity, receptivity, and a path to freedom. Zen has no God, but it has a tremendous power to transform our consciousness, to bring so much awareness that committing evil becomes inconceivable. This book argues persuasively that transformation cannot be imposed, but must come from one's innermost being and understanding

Tantric transformation : when love meets meditation : on the royal song of Saraha by Osho( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 'Tantric Transformation' we are introduced to the sacred and ancient tradition of Tantra by a contemporary Tantric master, Osho. We are given a detailed map of Tantra: inner man, inner woman; the meeting of man and woman; the transformation of energy through sex, love and meditation. Based on the Royal Song of Saraha, we are not just introduced to an Asian sex tradition but with Osho we enter the higher levels of transformation. Here we find Tantra as a door to freedom: freedom from all mind-constructs, mind games; freedom from all structures and freedom from the other.>
Ancient music in the pines : in zen mind suddenly stops :the way of effortless effort by Osho( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, humanity is caught up in the mad complexity of the mind, and as never before, there is an urgent need to rediscover simplicity and innocence. Osho brings to life the inherent and timeless wisdom of traditional Zen stories. He shows us that Zen is a way of dissolving philosophical problems, not of solving them. It is 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
Astrology : superstition, blind faith or a door to the essential? by Osho( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this fascinating volume, Osho reclaims astrology from the pop psychologists and?fortune tellers" and shares the deep insights that first brought this unique science of the stars into being. From ancient India to the lost civilization of Sumeria, from Pythagoras to Paracelsus to Piccardi, we discover that for thousands of years there has been a thread of awareness of how all things in the universe are interconnected? an awareness that modern physics is still struggling to define in scientific terms today. As Osho says: The universe is a living body, an organic unity. In it, no

A bird on the wing : Zen anecdotes for everyday life by Osho( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zen masters are dangerous people! While many of their stories have an entertaining aspect, the real meaning behind them is the total and radical transformation of human beings. Osho is a contemporary ""Zen Master"" and according to his own statements even more dangerous than the ancient masters. Like the masters of old, Osho tries to create situations for modern seekers that allow instant awakening, or enlightenment - to bring us out of the old habits and patterns of the mind and its illusions, out of the fog of conditioned beliefs and assumptions, and into the reality of the atomi
Happiness, Pleasure, Joy, Bliss by Osho( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Happiness, Pleasure, Joy, Bliss are addressed here by Osho and we learn the different levels of development: "Let us start from the lowest because that will be easier to understand, that's where man biologically is born. Pleasure is physical ..." Ordinarily, in the dictionaries you will find bliss defined as happiness, pleasure, joy. Linguistically they all appear to have a similar meaning; existentially it is not so. And you will have to understand the subtle nuances and differences; only then you may be able to catch some hold of the phenomenon called bliss
When Eternity Penetrates Time by Osho( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time is that in which we live -- it is horizontal. It is from A to B to C to D; it is in a line. Eternity is vertical. It is not from A to B and from B to C. It is from A to more A to still more A. It goes on upwards. The moment is rare because it happens only when meditation has reached ripening, maturity, when you have touched your innermost core. The vertical line opens a door to eternity. Taken from a series: Hari Om Tat Sat, by Osho

He describes meditation as the very center of his teaching efforts; the very womb out of which one is going to be re-born. ""To say something about meditation is a contradiction in terms. It is something which you can have, which you can be, but by its very nature you cannot say what it is. Still, efforts have been made to convey it in some way. Even if only a fragmentary, partial understanding

The path of love : talks on the songs of Kabir by Osho( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kabir is a 15th-century Indian mystic. Born a lower-caste weaver, Kabir opposed superstition, empty ritualism and bigotry. His teachings include scathing attacks against Brahmanical pride, caste prejudice and the very concept of untouchability, as well as exposing the dogmatism and bigotry he perceived around him. Unusually, even for his time, he was embraced by disciples who had been raised in both Hindu and Muslim traditions, who saw in him the embodiment of a life-affirmative approach that transcended the narrow dogmas that divide people and set them against one another. A poet
The search : finding your inner power, your potential by Osho( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human beings have an inbuilt drive or urge to search for the inner power that is needed to reach our true potential. This search is the search for the origins and meaning of 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 the search for the source of this life. Zen master Kakuan?s story of The Ten Bulls of Zen is a teaching that uses ten images, each representing a particular step on the journey of experiencing and understanding 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. This is a book that belongs in the hands of everyone who is on the search, beginning the search, or just thinking about the search. The book is illustrated with ten original images of Gomizen?s Ten Bulls of Zen from the Fuzoku Tenri Library, Tenri University, Japan
The Fear of Intimacy by Osho( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intimacy generally refers to the feeling of being in a close personal association and belonging together. Everybody is afraid of intimacy. It is another thing whether we are aware of it or not. Intimacy means exposing yourself before a stranger. We are all strangers -- nobody knows anybody. We are even strangers to ourselves, because we don't know who we are. This talk by Osho is an invitation to discover who you are
