Osho calls the incomparable Dhammapada sutras of Buddha, "the book of books." He explains that these sutras are concerned with every aspect of man's unawareness, and that Buddha's whole message is devoted to the raising of our consciousness. To enter into the Dhammapada with Osho is to witness a deep friendship of enlightened masters. These sutras were compiled by Buddha's disciples to contain the essence of all his teachings. This was the last turning of the Wheel of Dharma, 2,500 years ago. Osho's commentaries on these sutras set the Wheel of Dharma in motion again. Osho also answers questions from disciples and other seekers in alternate discourses all generously sprinkled with stories, personal anecdotes and, of course, a multitude of jokes. Visually this boxed set is stunning, without doubt a collector's set, and twelve volumes to dive into for years to come.
