The Alchemy of Yoga (Commentaries on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali)
The Alchemy of Yoga (Commentaries on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali)
by Osho
Description
About Osho

Osho defies categorization, reflecting everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. His books are not written but are transcribed from recordings of extemporaneous talks given over a period of thirty-five years. Osho has been described by the Sunday times in London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by Sunday Mid-Day in India as one of the ten people - along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha - who have changed the destiny of India.

Osho has a stated aim of helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being, characterized as "Zorba the Buddha" - one whose feet are firmly on the ground, yet whose hands can touch the stars. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology.

He is synonymous with a revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation and an approach to meditation which specifically addresses the accelerated pace of contemporary life. The unique Osho Active Meditations are designed to allow the release of accumulated stress in the body and mind so that it is easier to be still and experience the thought-free state of meditation.

Introduction

These transcribed talks given by Osho on the yoga sutras of Patanjali address the seed, or the source, of misery a look at what makes misery inevitable, from an inner point of view. Given any of life's situations, one can be happy. The main reason that we are not is because we habitually and mechanically seek solutions and understanding outside of ourselves.

It is like a child building a house of blocks around himself until he is trapped, and then calling out for help from his self-made prison. He seems to find it more convenient to cry out in anguish than to, finally and irrevocably, take responsibility for himself. This is a vision of how to begin to go inwards and break the cycle of anguish and blame that so many of us find ourselves in.

Yoga, according to Osho, need not be a path of hardship. It has been misinterpreted as such by people who mistrust the natural and fear freedom. Austerity is simplicity: living not through desires but through needs. And these talks deal with how to re-establish a relationship with ourselves where we can determine what our needs are.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
