Nansen: The Point of Departure

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Based on the anecdotes of Nansen, the poetry of Sekiso and the questions of a disciple, this series of talks is penetrated by Osho's love for the radical revolutionary depicted in the courageous innovator Nansen and his insistence that the spiritual is not apart from the material - The Point of Departure. Challenging the reader to be a whole person, not denying anything, Osho continually hits us with the Zen stick of his wit, encouraging us to "transform everything, including everything in your spiritual growth."
