When the Shoe Fits

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Osho is unique amongst commentators in that he does not offer yet another intellectual treatise on principles, but rather relates the situations of a few thousand years ago to our situation here and now. His great affinity with Chuang Tzu is obvious as he talks on Zen as a religious system only in so far as it is a practical means by which we may understand the conditionings of the mind, and in so doing, transcend. And then the shoe will always fit!
