Absolute Tao: Talks on Fragments from "Tao Te Ching" by Lao Tzu

Description
Back of The Book

Osho has spoken on more than 300 mystics, known and unknown. His absolute love is with Lao Tzu. He speaks on Mahavira, "as a part of my duty ... he is great, enlightened, but like a vast desert." Of Krishna Osho says, "He is multi- dimensional, superhuman, miraculous, but looks more like a myth than a real man. ( enjoy it as a cosmic gossip." Speaking on Jesus Christ he says, "I feel deep sympathy for him. But we remain parallel, we never meet. He is so sad, so burdened." And of Buddha: "Down through the centuries, through many lives, I have loved him. He is tremendously beautiful, extraordinarily beautiful, superb. But he is not on the earth, he does not walk on the earth. He is one-sided." And he continues,

"I speak on Lao Tzu totally differently. I am not related to him because even to be related a distance is needed. When I speak on Lao Tzu I speak as if I am speaking on my own self. With him my being is totally on ... it is as if I am looking in a mirror: my own face is reflected. When I speak on Lao Tzu, 1 am absolutely with him. Even to say "absolutely with him" is not true -I am him, he is me. "

This book goes straight to the heart of the matter. Osho uses the Tao Te Ching texts as Lao Tzu intended: to ignite the flame of individual awareness and insight. From the seven verses Osho selected to comment on, he moves deeply into his own understanding and burns through every idea we may hold about ourselves until we can see with the same crystal clear light as Lao Tzu.

preface

Tao is another name for God, far more beautiful than God because God, the word God, has been exploited too much by the priests. They have exploited in the name of God for so long that even the word has become contaminated - it has become disgusting. Any man of intelligence is bound to avoid it because it reminds him of all the nonsense that has happened on the earth down the ages in the name of God, in the name of religion. More mischief has happened in the name of God than in any other name.

Tao in that sense is tremendously beautiful. You cannot worship Tao because Tao does not give you the idea of a person. It is simply a principle, not a person. You cannot worship a principle - you cannot pray to Tao. It will look ridiculous; it will be utterly absurd, praying to a principle. You don't pray to gravitation, you cannot pray to the theory of relativity.

Tao simply means the ultimate principle that binds the whole existence together. Existence is not a chaos; that much is certain. It is a cosmos, There is immense order in it, intrinsic order in it, and the name of that order is Tao. Tao simply means the harmony of the whole. No temples have been built for Tao; no statues, no prayers, no priests, no rituals - that's the beauty of it. Hence I don't call it a doctrine, nor do I call it a religion, it is pure insight.

I recently ordered a hand embroidered stole. It was expensive and I was slightly worried about ordering it on line. It has arrived and is magnificent. I couldn't be happier, I will treasure this stole for ever. Thank you.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
