Communism & Zen Fire, Zen Wind

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Triggered by the presence of a TV crew from the USSR, and almost a year before the walls of Eastern Europe crumble, Osho offers a highly-charged and prescient reappraisal of Soviet communism, beginning with faint praise for Gobachev and ending with a fierce and prescient warning about the tragic effects that supporting his plans for reform will have. Osho also exposes how the US is already orchestrating its own ultimate downfall. All in the context of his comments on Zen anecdotes and a dazzling selection of haikus.
