5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Presentation by Osho 5 January 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is so unique of Osho. He has not gone deep into the life history of Buddha but highlighted the instances and anecdotes in his own style. He dealt deeply with Buddha's teachings. One can understand Buddha easily through Osho. He seems very authentic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Book on Buddha 30 June 2010
By S. KUMAR - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read numerous books on Buddha / Buddhism, but no book comes close to this book. When Osho explains about Buddha, it's like listening to Buddha himself. Such is the experience when one reads Osho's books. I think one gets this experience because these words come from a maverick enlightened master who spoke the truth fearlessly. Consciousness is the most important / essential part of life for peace, happiness, health and prosperity. Understanding this will make one open doors for a world of possibilites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buddha- the 5 dimensions 12 November 2013
By Anirudh Agarwal - Published on
Amazon Service:

superb. got it in less than 2 days. free of the best parts of amazon that it allows free delivery of order amt < 500 unlike its competitive indian counterpart which doesnt. Hence i chose amazon. the packing was flawless.

About the book:

To break the myth, this book is neither about buddhism as a religion nor buddha as a monk. Its about buddha(the awakened one) as a STATE OF BEING.
the five dimensions to the meaning of "budhi" at the very onset of the book makes for an intriguing self-introspection. In fact these starting few pages are the core essence of the book, which is further elucidated by excerpts from the life of Siddharth Gautam(who reached the STATE of Buddhahood..the enlightened one) in the captivating voice of Osho.

The book aims to uplift your spiritual state(it doesnt teach you to live a monk-life in the mountains as spiritually ignorant fools notion about these genre of books.) Its about REALIZING your true being. Once that is achieved, nothing can stop you from leading a happy and blissful life.
Opportunity knocks our door but we are too ignorant to call it noise and turn away. This is one of those opportunities.


Flat 5 stars!
--superb binding with thick glossy pages.
--comes with a dvd(some osho lecture..but dont misconstrue it is a soft version of the book)
--Flawless print.
--eye-catching pictures on almost every page.
--fascinating elusive content in boxes.

Over-all this is an invaluable decoration to your book-shelf and if imbibed, to your life :)

Yes, some stories are familiar, some are not, but all are reminders as to who we are, and who this man was who lived so long ago and gave the world so much wisdom in a single lifetime.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book-continue to enjoy it-and would recommend it to anyone: young or old, new to Buddhism or one who has been acquainted with it in a life-long study, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus,and Pagans; anyone and EVERYONE!
