The Language of Existence

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Nine discourses based on anecdotes of famous and little-known Zen masters. Many of these stories were previously only available in Japanese and were translated specially for these talks. In his discussion of these stories Osho gives meditation techniques to help understand and go beyond death, as well as techniques to be used in everyday life. This book also contains radical insights into the problem of drugs and Osho presents a revolutionary solution.
