Christianity: The Deadliest Poison and Zen: The Antidote to All Poisons

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


With ruthless precision and an irreverent wisdom that is often shocking, Osho dismembers Christianity in the presence of twenty-one Jesuit priests visiting his commune at the time this discourse series was given. This is Osho at his most candid as he deals with all the unspoken questions anyone from a Christian background might ever want to ask.
