Jump to: navigation, search


Most of us have quoted The Bible, been quoted at from The Bible, sworn on The Bible, doubted The Bible - but how many of us have really questioned its basic premise, that God exists? How much of what we have accepted as our religion is related to our own experiences and has any relevance to our day to day lives? Looking for the answers, we find our minds so full of ideas instilled from birth - sin and guilt, reward and punishment, this world and the other, somebody out there bigger than us who we should obey - it's almost impossible to untangle the mess and start from scratch. In this series of discourses Osho exposes our conditioned beliefs as a means of challenging us to experience life and its inherent religiousness from a fresh perspective, with our own, individual eyes. A must for the thinking Christian.

The original tapes of chapter 20 (Dec 19, 1984) in this series were erased by Sheela the following day, because it attacked the powerbrokers in Rajneeshpuram.
Chapter 20 in the book is merely the reproduction of a censored transcript which was originally published in the Rajneesh Times.
