Learning Happiness (The Discipline of Transcendence on Buddha's Sutra of Forty - Two Chapters)
by Osho

Description
About the Book

Perhaps the most fundamental truth that Buddha brought to the world is his penetrating insight into the essential nature of happiness. In the discipline of Transcendence, Volume 3- one of a series of four volumes in which he comments on the 42 earliest-known teachings of Buddha-Osho explains why Buddha insists that happiness does not have to be created. It already exists in the present moment; all that has to be learned is the knack of living in the present.

Osho outlines and clarifies the three steps in Buddha’s carefully defined path to liberation: the path of awareness, the journey from sex to spirituality.

Preface

Happiness and unhappiness are both present in your life. The happiness may be just a little, perhaps only a glimpse, a hope or even an illusion, but still it is there. And unhappiness is there as well. You want to get rid of the unhappiness, so you approach the one who knows because he offers you same possibility of relief from your unhappiness. But when you approach the man who known, he tells you to cast off the happiness as well as the unhappiness because only then can knowing happen.?

Really, this is where the difficulty lies. You don’t want to cast off the happiness that is yours. You have only recently got married; the wife is beautiful, people have been congratulating you, expressing their delight that you are married and now you have the one you wanted. You want to preserve this happiness. The arrangement you are seeking is one in which the unhappiness of the world disappears, but the happiness remains- and this is impossible.

No one has ever been able to manage this, nor ever will, because the happiness and unhappiness of the world are two sides of the same coin. Either you retain the whole coin or you throw the whole coin away. You are trying the impossible, and that is why you are divided within yourself. You want to leave one half and keep the other. But this life cannot be divided. Life is whole; to divide it is impossible.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
