About the book

“I celebrate myself and I want you to learn the art of celebrating yourself for no reason, for no cause. Just to be is enough, more than enough. To be part of the whole is such a great metamorphosis that you cannot resist you have to dance, you have to sing, you have to express your joy, your blissfulness.

I celebrate myself is a remarkable book on many levels. First and foremost Osho demolishes the belief in a God above. The way in which all religions have kept man weighed down with guilt and judgments through the domination of the priests is laid bare. And yet this book is also a joyous celebration of each one of us showing us that celebration is our natural state of being the idea of man passing from cradle to grave without realizing that he has an inner life seems so shocking when we are reminded of all his potential brought to life by every Buddha who as walked the earth living proof that something more exists.

We are taken on a journey as the layers are peeled away: how with three hundred so-called religions on this earth we have been free to choose but not fee not to choose. Osho makes it clear that while he is eradicating the myth of God his focus is in fact on the freedom of man simply through individual exploration using the tool of meditation freedom from all imposed moralities is attained beliefs drop away and man is transformed to live his potential fresh new and alive man can now celebrate his place in the cosmos. No longer struggling to make sense of his life he is naturally at one with existence.

About the Author

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 1 am saying is not just for you... I am talking also lot 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 technology.

Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation 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.

Preface

The old religions have taught you to renounce life. They are all life negative; their whole approach is pessimistic. They are all against life and its joys. To me, life and God are synonymous. In fact, life is a far better word than God itself because God is only a philosophical term, while life is real, existential. The word God exists only in scriptures; it is a word, a mere word. Life is within you and within you in the trees, in the clouds, in the stars, This whole existence is a dance of life.

I reach love for life.

I teach the art of living your life totally, of being drunk with the divine through life. I am not an escapist. All your old religions have been teaching you escapism — they were all in a certain sense hip. The word hippie has to be understood. It simply means one who escapes from the battle of life, who shows his hips...! All your old religions are hippie! They have shown their hips. They could not accept the challenge of life; they could not confront and encounter life. They were cowards; they escaped to the mountains, to the monasteries.

But even if you escape to the mountains and to the monasteries, how can you leave yourself behind? You are part of life. Life pulsates in your blood. Life breathes in you. Life is your very being. Where can you escape? AU those efforts to escape, considered correctly, are suicidal. Your monks, your nuns, your mahatmas, your so-called saints, were all suicidal people; they were trying gradual suicide. Not only were they suicidal, they were cowards too — cowards because they could not even commit suicide in a single blow They were committing suicide gradually, in installments; by and by, slowly they were dying. And we have respected these unhealthy people, these unwholesome people, these insane people. They were against God because they were against life.

I am in tremendous love with life; hence, I teach celebration. Everything has to be celebrated, everything has to be lived, loved. To roe nothing is mundane and nothing is sacred. To me all is sacred, from the lowest rung of the ladder to the highest rung. It is the same ‘adder: from the body to the soul, from the physical to the spiritual, from sex to samadhi — everything is divine.
