Back of the Book
'Nobody has to lead you and nobody has to save you,' insists a radical and rebellious Osho as he launches a series of attacks on false knowledge and oppression. His vision is of a world changed by the love that arises from meditation. He considers the mantra 'Om Mani Padme Hum' the best attempt to describe 'the beauty within yourself'. This inner truth is the 'real thing', not the teachings of society, politicians and priests.

Starting with the Chinese invasion of Tibet, and replying to questions on divisive educational systems, science corrupted by politics, and oppressive religions, Osho keeps saying that love is the key and we all have everything we need within ourselves.

Preface
Arebel will renounce ideals, morals, religions, philosophies, rituals and superstitions of the society - but not the society itself. He is not a coward; he is a warrior. He has to fight his way and he has to make paths for other rebels to follow.

As far as the world is concerned, the world and the society are not the same thing. In the past, the so-called religious people have renounced both the society and the world. The rebel will fight against the society, renounce its ideals, and he will love the world because the world, existence, is our very source of life. To renounce it is to be anti-life. But all religions have been anti-life, life-negative.

The rebel should be life-affirmative. He will bring in all those values that make the world more beautiful, more lovable, that make the world richer. It is our world; we are part of it, and it is part of us. How can we renounce it? Where can we go to renounce it? The world is in the Himalayan cave as much as it is here in the marketplace.

The world has to be nourished because it is nourishing you. The world has to be respected because it is your very source of life. All the juice that flows in you, all the joys and celebrations that happen to you, come from existence itself. Rather than running away from it, you should dive deeper into it; you should send your roots to deeper sources of life and love and laughter. You should dance and celebrate.

Your celebration will bring you closer to existence because existence is in constant celebration. Your joy, your blissfulness, your silence, will bring the silences of the stars and the sky; your peace with existence will open the doors of all the mysteries it contains. There is no other way to become enlightened.

The world is not to be condemned; it is to be respected. The rebel will honor existence; he will have immense reverence for life in whatsoever form it exists - for men, for women, for trees, for mountains, for stars. The rebel will have a deep reverence for whatever form in which life exists. That will be his gratitude, that will be his prayer, that will be his religion, that will be his revolution. To be a rebel is the beginning of a totally new kind of life, a totally new style of life; it is the beginning of a new humanity, of a new man.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
