Jump to: navigation, search


"Zen has nothing to do with the mind... It is the lion's roar. And the greatest thing that Zen has brought into the world is freedom from oneself." The Zen Manifesto is a collection of the last discourses of Osho with his last publicly spoken words. In this culmination of his insights into Zen he makes it clear that the West's comprehension of Zen is still confined to intellectual appreciation. To prove it, Osho takes on such respected members of the Western Zen establishment as D.T. Suzuki, Thomas Merton, Paul Reps, Alan Watts and Nancy Wilson-Ross.

A new series begins today: The Awakening of the Buddha.
Before the sutras there are few questions from the sannyasins..."
