Speaking in an intimate setting, in Beyond Psychology Osho tells anecdotes ranging from his escapades as a young man, to his treatment at the hands of governments around the world, who fear his outspokenness to such an extent that they refuse him entry to their countries.
Just prior to these talks, Greece had abruptly cancelled Osho’s four- week tourist visa, the police threatening to dynamite the house he was staying in and swiftly removing him from the country — all because of accusations from the church that he would corrupt the minds of the young and destroy the morals and religion of the country. If, as Osho points out, their ancient traditions can so easily be destroyed by a visitor in four weeks, of what value are they?
A small group of people, reeling from the recent experiences in America and Greece, are encouraged to ask questions by Osho, who is unperturbed and constantly bringing the focus to the opportunity to go deeper. The questioners are urged to experience that which can only be found beyond the mind and behavior that are imposed by society and enforced by religions from an early age.
Osho is a revolution that helps the birth og each individual: “I am trying in every possible way to drop all those things, which in the past have been barriers for the revolution to continue and grow. don’t want anybody to stand between the individual and existence. No prayer, no priest- you alone are enough to face the sunrise.You don’t need somebody to interpret for you what a beautiful sunrise it is.”
Osho defies categorization. His thousands of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho's books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it, "So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you ... I am talking also for the future generations. "
Osho has been described by The Sunday Times in London as one of the" 1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by American author Tom Robbins as "the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ." Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people - along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha - who have changed the destiny of India.
About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as "Zorba the Buddha" - capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho's talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest potential of today's (and tomorrow's) science and tee: oloqy,
Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to medita- tion that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique OSHO Active Meditations are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.
I conceive of a world without poverty, without classes, without nations, without religions, without any kind of discrimination. conceive of a world which is one, a humanity which is one, a humanity which shares everything — outer and inner — a deep spiritual brotherhood.
So my function is not simply finished with my own enlightenment. In fact, my work began after my enlightenment. Gautam Buddha’s work came to an end when he became enlightened; I started my work after my enlightenment.
As far as I am concerned, I don’t need to live a single moment more, because life — either outer or inner — cannot give me anything more than I have already achieved. But to me it seems to be selfish. I would like millions of people to be aflame with the same light, with the same vision, with the same dream.
I would like a new man to be born, a new humanity, where ugly discriminations disappear, where there are no wars, no atomic or nuclear weapons, no nations, no races; where man can share all the bounties of existence and all the experiences of his inner being.
I want this whole humanity to be one ocean of consciousness.
Whatever the buddhas in the past did was good, but not enough. They created for themselves the highest peak of consciousness. I would like to create that highest peak for everyone — at least for those who are in search of it
