Bliss: Living Beyond Happiness and Misery

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Everyone is searching for happiness, says Osho, but because they are looking in the wrong direction outside no one ever really finds it. Real happiness, bliss, can only be found inside. It can be reached by learning the Knack of dis-identifying with the mind. This book on the ancient wisdom of the Shiva Sutras explains how to do this. These sutras will challenge and disturb peoples ideas about how life can be lives, but they also reveal how bliss is already hidden within the states we all experience daily: waking dreaming and sleeping. Osho shows how to dis-identify from the desires and attachments of the mind that trap everyone during this life, and pull them into the next. The beginning of being human happens only when we get out of this circle called mind.
