Zen: The Path of Paradox, Vol 3

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


"Truth cannot be said, but can be shown," and Osho leaves no stone unturned along the path - Zen koans, the nature of satori, the three Pillars of Zen, the Man of No Title, the Great Doubt. And the landscape is vividly peopled with outlandish figures - Joshu and his jokes, Chi Ch'ang, the master archer, Rinzai answering the questions and beating up the questioner. Meet Bankei, Bossui and Emperor Wu. Osho hits all the sacred cows and strips away all illusions. "Zen is looking for the spectacles that are sitting on your nose already." So, have a good belly laugh. Have a cup of tea!
