Zen: The Path of Paradox, Vol 1

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Day and night, summer and winter, life and death...nature itself is paradox and Zen the simple mirror reflection of life. Remain choiceless, says Osho, and you will remain true. Relax and let go into the way things really are. Enlightenment is finding that there is nothing to find. In alternate sessions Osho also answers questions about why there can't be just one religion in the world, the difference between philosophy, psychology and religion, and the nature of guilt, spontaneity, projection, the psychological defense mechanism, intuition, and more.
