Philosophia Perennis, Vol 2

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Osho explains in this volume that Pythagoras, who he describes as "a seeker of truth par excellence," lived in Alexandria and was initiated into the mystery schools of Egypt in his search. He then traveled to India, Tibet and China - at that time the whole known world - in his search until he became self-realized. He found the "perennial philosophy" but was persecuted by his own society. Attempts were made on his life, and he was unable to work out his system in detail. The fragments of his teachings were collected after his death and written down by a disciple in The Golden Verses of Pythagoras. In his commentary, Osho expounds on the idea of the East and West as representative of the brain's two hemispheres, and on the two Pythagorean laws - of necessity and power. His enthusiasm and love for Pythagoras are evident in these talks on his verses.
