Abstract:

The path to freedom is filled with questions and uncertainty. Is it possible to truly know who we are? Do our lives have a purpose, or are we just accidental? Osho, known for most of his life as guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, challenges us to understand our world and ourselves in a new way. It is only in questioning our beliefs, assumptions, and prejudices that we can begin to uncover our own unique voice and heal the divisions within us and without. Once we discover our authentic self, we can embrace all aspects of the human experience--from the earthy, pleasure-loving qualities of Zorba the Greek to the watchful, silent qualities of the Buddha. We can become whole and live with integrity, able to respond with creativity and compassion to the religious, political, and cultural divides that plague society.--From publisher description.
