Tao: The Pathless Path, Vol 2

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


In these talks on Lieh Tzu, Osho calls Tao "the pathless path" because, he says, it has a different quality - the quality of freedom, anarchy and chaos. "Anything that is an imposition, a discipline, an order imposed externally only serves to distract the seeker from his path." In addition to commenting on these stories attributed to Lieh Tzu, Osho answers questions about marriage, intimacy, the possibility of Tantra merging with Tao, and the relationship of Tao to the notion of "doing your own thing."
