Talks on the Great Mystic Ashtavakra: Enlightenment The Only Revolution
Talks on the Great Mystic Ashtavakra: Enlightenment The Only Revolution
by Osho
Description
From the Jacket:

"If these words penetrate you, they will start awakening your sleeping soul. These words will thrill you. These words will fill you with ecstasy. These word will shock you. With these words a revolution can take place….
This is why I have chosen the Ashtavakra Gita: I have chosen it because your are ready." - Osho

I am giving you a touchstone. Test your experiences on these touchstones….
When you have an understanding of Ashtavakra's words preserve it as a touchstone, let it stay deep within you, and when your experience of life comes then you can test it. Then Ashtavakra's touchstone will be helpful. You will be able to know what has happened. You will have the language to understand it. You will have a method of understand it. Ashtavakra will be your touchstone." - Osho

"Man has many scriptures, but none are comparable to the Gita of Ashtavakra. Before it the Vedas pale, the Upanishads are a mere whisper. Even the Bhagavadgita does not have the mere majesty found in the Ashtavakra Samhita - it is simply unparalleled.

The most important thing is that neither society, nor politics, nor any other institution of human life had any influence on the statements of Ashtavakra. There are no other statements anywhere that are so pure, transcendental, and beyond time and space." - Osho

"Higher than Einstein, deeper than Jung, as perceptive as Proust, as up-to-date as the internet, Osho is the best read since the Rosetta Stone." - Ralph Thorpe, author of The Dreamer

"Osho is a thoroughly modern man as much at home with Marx and Engels and humanistic psychology as with the mystical traditions of the East." - Washington Post, USA

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 give over a period of thirty-five year. 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:

This book, Enlightenment: The Only Revolution, is the ultimate challenge, the ultimate invitation. A commentary on the Gita of Ashtavakra. We are called to be liberated right now. To be enlightened this very moment.

It is pure, it is simple, it is urgent. Ashtavakra has given everything in his song. There is no excuse. It is now up to us.

Osho introduces us to Ashtavakra and tells us of the meeting between him, a twelve-year-old deformed boy and Janak - a king. A meeting which leads to a questioning on how to find detachment, wisdom and freedom. Janak is a disciple so receptive and ready that transformation happens simultaneously as the master speaks. He is a listener of such understanding and courage that he immediately awakens.

We are provoked. Can we also receive the divine through these words? Can we also allow these statements to penetrate our heart like arrows, to awaken us?

In these extemporaneous talks Osho shares His wisdom. Telling stories, jokes, reciting poems, answering inquiries from seekers, He weaves his insights with Ashtavakra's Gita to seduce us to turn in. One moment the coolness of pure witnessing, freedeom and detachment, the next the heat of longing for the divine, a heart catching fire.

Osho, says: "We are embarking on a rare journey," that "If you want to understand Ashtavakra you will have to descend into the depths of meditation."

And it is so. This journey is like a lightning strike in a monsoon storm. Everything is illuminated for a split second, then washed and revitalized by the deluge of rain. There is a freshness, a vastness to this message, this invitation. The message is urgent and provocative, yet full of deep concern and loving support. There is nothing to strive for. Just relax, rest in consciousness. It is not a fight, an effort, but an understanding.

"Ashtavakra's words are absolutely unique. Hearing them, it will happen again and again; again and again you will feel that your are not on this earth but have become part of the sky - because these words are the sky. These words come from the homeland, come from that source from which we all come, the source to which we must return. Without going back to it we will never find peace."

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
