The Psychology of the Esoteric

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This book has been published in 20 languages, and is a best-seller in many countries. It takes the reader beyond Western psychology, beyond Freud, Jung and the Human Potential Movement, to the psychology of enlightenment, of the buddhas. In detailed talks on the occult and the esoteric psychology of man, Osho explains man's seven energy levels, how to experience and transcend them, and how different dimensions of dreaming come from the different levels. He also talks on Kundalini and the three stages of sexual energy - sex, love and prayer.

Later published as part of Osho Books on CD-ROM.
Previously published as The Inward Revolution, but extensively edited and in a different order, see discussion.
The 1978 Orient edition (the exact year is unclear) is listed in some lists as The New Evolution of Man. That is probably because its subtitle is printed in bigger letters than the main title.
