The Buddha: The Emptiness of the Heart

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


In this particularly potent dose of Zen, Osho challenges the reader to know the "empty heart," the door to eternity that exists within everyone. Using stories and haikus from past Zen masters, Osho reveals the relevance of Zen for the contemporary world. He separates Zen from all the other religions in the world, stating that they are obsolete whereas the Zen he is presenting is an alive phenomenon.
