An invitation and introduction to Osho's vision. Lacing his talks with jokes and personal anecdotes, Osho shows how the problems of everyday life can be used as tools for transformation. He also speaks on the connection between the master and his disciples, describing the role of the master as simply an invitation to return home - to ourselves.
