The Book of Wisdom

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The complete series of talks that Osho gave on the early Buddhist mystic Atisha are combined in a single edition. "Meditate on Atisha, listen to his advice. This is not a philosophy, it is a manual to discipline yourself, it is a manual for inner transformation. It is a book that can help you grow into wisdom." An extraordinarily straightforward journey into the world Buddhism as seen by this little-known mystic.

Later published as part of Osho Books on CD-ROM.
Previously published in two volumes, The Book of Wisdom, Vol 1 and Vol 2.
The Osho Friends International website has made this entire book available online to highlight the changes made to the original material. Whole chapters of the original have been cut, with many little snips here and there and some small additions. It is believed that all these changes persist from the 2000 Element edition on; in fact, the 2009 OMI edition states that, "Some parts have been edited to keep the work contemporary in accordance with Osho's request." See Editing of Osho's words#Books for more on this.
