In discourses given by Osho during an early meditation camp, sutras from these ancient Hindu scriptures are transmuted into stunning insights that can open the reader's eyes to his own inner reality. Osho speaks on issues that touch the heart and intellect of every individual: love and possessiveness, the nature of our reluctance to face death, and the mechanisms of the mind are but a few. He also gives practical suggestions how to prepare for meditation and how to extract the most from the meditation techniques.
translated from
Hindi : Ishavasyopanishad (ईशावास्योपनिषद) by Sw Anand Siddhartha

Discourses given at Koda House, Mount Abu, Rajastan, India.
Preface of the 1980 edition:
The twenty discourses in this book, based on the sutras of the Ishavasya Upanishad, were originally spoken by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh in Hindi.
They were given over a period of seven days, at the mount Abu meditation camp of 4th to 10th April, 1971.
It was just under six months since Bhagwan Shree had begun to initiate followers into sannyas -discipleship- and among the four hundred or so participants there were about thirty Western sannyasins. Today, seven years later, there are over seventy-five thousand Western sannyasins around the world, and at any given time about three thousand sannyasins at the ashram here in Poona.
