Tao: The Golden Gate, Vol 1

From The Sannyas Wiki

Osho refers to these ancient discourses as the most profound insights into nature - not tenets of a doctrine or philosophical treatises but existential insights. Of their originator, the famous 6th-century scholar Ko Hsuan, nothing is known except that he is an enlightened master of the caliber of Lao Tzu. Osho explains why Tao is called "the golden gate" - to indicate that God is not a person but an entrance, an opening that happens internally when the seeker is ready.
