Take It Easy, Vol 2

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Through his commentaries on Zen master Ikkyu's verses, Osho shatters many of the cherished beliefs of man, and the meditator too. Togetherness, aloneness, the illusoriness of love and of meditation; the difficulty of understanding the simple; the difference between information and experience... There is something here for every intelligent reader!
