From Darkness to Light

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Education, according to Osho, is drawing out the hidden potential of the individual, to help each person bring his own uniqueness from the darkness into the light. In these talks he examines ways in which the institutions of society have systematically done the opposite in their attempts to impose socially-acceptable norms of behavior on everyone - from the cradle to the grave both in public and private life.
