Zen is an experience, not a dogma, and an experience which transcends the confines of the rational mind, moving into the super-rational arena of our consciousness. Through words, Osho creates a sense of existential silence from which all words manifest. At the same time, he shines the light of understanding on many inner barriers to growth and self-realization.
