Jump to: navigation, search


Osho describes one of the stories within this collection as belonging to the "very foundation of religious consciousness." Deceptively simple, these Sufi tales have a deeper, underlying significance, and Osho makes it manifest for all to see. These stories are not for those who want entertainment, he shows us, but for those who seek illumination.
