Book Description
Back of the Book

This life is a gift from existence, to be lived and enjoyed. But with the seemingly impossible and cinflicting demands of society, morality and culture, people struggle with feelings of unfuilled potential, frustration and guilt rather than living full lives.

This uplifting book gives a taste of osho,s life-affimative, accepting and far-reaching wisdom as he comments on the royal song of saraha and answers questions. saraha was an 8th century Indian sage who left his opulent life in the royal court to live with an arrowsmith woman. Inspired by her single-pointed awareness, and the potential of living each moment, tantra was born.

The world of Tantra has no division between higher and lower. The simple, ordinary things of life are transformed into great things when we enter into them totally-be it car fixing, floor cleaning or lovemaking. osho shows how, living this vision, new heights of consciousness and freedom are realized.

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 audi- ences. 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 con- ditions 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 accel- erated 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.


These songs of Saraha are of great beauty. They are the very foundation of Tantra. You will first have to understand the Tantra attitude towards life, the Tantra vision of life. The most basic thing about Tantra is this - and very radi- cal, revolutionary, rebellious - the basic vision is that the world is not divided into the lower and the higher, but that the world is one piece. The higher and the lower are holding hands. The higher includes the lower, and the lower includes the higher. The higher is hidden in the lower - so the lower has not to be denied, has not to be condemned, has not to be destroyed or killed. The lower has to be transformed. The lower has to be allowed to move upwards and then the lower becomes the higher. There is no unbridgeable gap between the Devil and God: the Devil is carrying God deep down in his heart. Once that heart starts functioning, the Devil becomes God.

That is the reason why the very root of the word devil means the same as divine. The word devil comes from divine; it is the divine not yet evolved, that's all. Not that the Devil is against the divine, not that the Devil is trying to destroy the divine - in fact the Devil is trying to find the divine. The Devil is on the way towards the divine; it is not the enemy, it is the seed. The divine is the tree fully in bloom, and the Devil is the seed - but the tree is hidden in the seed, and the seed is not against the tree. In fact the tree cannot exist if the seed is not there. The tree is not against the seed; they are in deep friendship, they are together. Poison and nectar are two phases of the same energy, so are life and death - and so is everything: day and night, love and hate, sex and superconsciousness.

Tantra says: never condemn anything - the attitude of condemnation is a stupid attitude. By condemning something you are denying yourself the pos- sibility that would have become available to you if you had evolved the lower. Don't condemn the mud, because the lotus is hidden in the mud; use the mud to produce the lotus. Of course the mud is not the lotus yet, but it can be. The creative person, the religious person, will help the mud to release its lotus so that the lotus can be freed from the mud.

Saraha is the founder of the Tantra vision. It is of tremendous import - and particularly for the present moment in human history because a new man is striving to be born, a new consciousness is knocking on the doors, and the future is going to be that of Tantra because now dual attitudes can no lon- ger hold man's mind. They have tried for centuries; and they have crippled man and they have made man guilty They have not made man free; they have made man a prisoner. They have not made man happy either, they have made man very miserable. They have condemned everything: from food to sex they have condemned everything, from relationship to friendship they have condemned all. Love is condemned, the body is condemned, the mind is condemned. They have not left a single inch for you to stand on; they have taken away all, and man is hanging, just hanging. This state of man cannot be tolerated any longer.

Tantra can give you a new perspective; hence I have chosen Saraha. Saraha is one of my most-loved persons; it is myoid love affair. You may not even have heard the name of Saraha, but Saraha is one of the great benefac- tors of humanity. If I were to count on my fingers ten benefactors of humanity, Saraha would be one of those ten. If I were to count five, then too I would not be able to drop Saraha.
