Product Description

Product Description

Talks on the Stories of Chuang Tzu. OSHO revitalises the 300-year-old Taoist message of self-realization through the stories of the Chinese mystic, Chuang Tzu. He speaks about the state of egolessness, "the empty boat"; spontaneity, dreams and wholeness; living life choicelessly and meeting death with the same equanimity . Available in a beautiful new edition, this series overflows with the wisdom of one who has realized the state of egolessness himself.

About the Author

Osho is one of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, the influence of his teachings continues to grow, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world. He is the author of many books, including "Love, Freedom, Aloneness; The Book of Secrets"; and "Innocence, Knowledge, and Wonder."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is another deeply edifying commentary by osho. The 'Look Inside' option gives an opportunity to get a feel for the contents of the book. The commentary holds a mirror to human traits and points to the fallible elements of our personalities. Hence, it enables one to understand oneself, cleanse oneself of toxic traits, and take one more step on the path to sat-chit-ananda.

The first section delves on the origins of 'ego' and the hell it creates in oneself and outside us. Those deep insights help one dissolve at least part of ones ego. Through parables, and snippets of Chunag Tzu's life, osho urges one to stop becoming somebody and empty one's boat.

Chapter 2: The Man of Tao

The man in whom Tao
Acts without impediment
Harms no other being
By his actions
Yet he does not know himself
To be "kind" and "gentle"

Chapter 6: The Need To Win

When an archer is shooting for nothing
He has all his skill.
If he shoots for a brass buckle,
He is already nervous.
If he shoots for a prize of gold,
He goes blind
Or sees two targets --
He is out of his mind !

His skill has not changed. But the prize
Divides him. He cares.
He thinks more of winning
Than of shooting --
And the need to win
Drains him of power.

The above parables are an attempt to nudge us to walk without concern and realize the greater consciousness that casts all us in the human mould.
