Tao: The Pathless Path, Vol 1

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The Book of Lieh Tzu is attributed to a 5th-century Chinese mystic. It is not known if Lieh Tzu ever existed, or if the parables attributed to him were written by one person or many. More significant than their origin are the parables themselves, and the way in which Osho takes them in hand and opens the door to the mysteries they contain. In the course of his commentary and his answers to questions, Osho speaks of Beckett and Buddha, Gurdjieff and Hitler, Einstein and Confucius. He also talks about psychotherapy and Taoism, and wehther Taoism is a form of escapism.
