The Empty Boat

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


In this beautiful book, Osho revitalizes the 3000-year-old Taoist message of self-realization through the stories of the Chinese mystic, Chuang Tzu. He speaks about the state of egolessness, "the empty boat"; spontaneity, dreams, and living life choicelessly.
