About the Book

Step by step, Osho explains what he calls “the central teaching of Patanjali”- a path of eight steps that leads finally to transformation. There are no rules to be following; this isn’t a new system of beliefs or a new religion. Patanjali’s approach is all-encompassing, covering the exercise and breathing technique that are now an established part of contemporary wellness and holistic living techniques, but also the science of yoga. Osho describes the significance and meaning of each of patanjali’s steps of self-exploration, and shows how contemporary man can awaken his life energy.

Preface

Yoga is not a religion, remember that. Yoga is not Hindu, it is not Mohammedan. Yoga is a pure science just like mathematics, physics, or chemistry. Physics is not Christian, physics is not Buddhist. Christians may have discovered the laws of physics, but physics is not Christian. It is just accidental that Christians have come to discover the laws of physics. Physics remains just a science. Yoga is a science; it is just accidental that Hindus discovered it. It is not Hindu. It is pure mathematics of the inner being. A Mohanmmedan can be a yogi, a Christian can be a yogi, a jaina, a Buddhist can be a yogi.

Yoga is pure science. And patanjali is the greatest name in the world of yoga. This man is rare; there is no other name comparable to patanjali. For the first time in the history of humanity this man brought religion of the state of science. He made religion a science; a religion of pure laws, no belief is needed.

So-called religions need beliefs. There is no other difference between one religion and another except the difference of beliefs. A mohanmmedan has certain beliefs, a Hindu certain other, a Christian certain other. The difference is of beliefs. Yoga has nothing as far as belief is concerned; yoga doesn’t say to believe in anything. Yoga says to experience. Just as science says to experiment, yoga says to experience. Experiment and experience are both the same; their directions are different. Experiment means there is something you can do outside; experience means there is something you can do inside. Experience is an inner experiment.

Science says, “Don’t believe, doubt as much as you can,” but also, “don’t disbelieve”- because disbelief is again a sort of belief. You can believe in god, you can believe in the concept of no-God. You can say that God exists with a fanatic attitude and you can say quite the reverse that God exists not, with the same fanaticism. Atheists, theists, are all believers, and belief is not the realm of science. Science means to experience something, that which is; no belief is needed.

The second thing to remember is that yoga is existential, experiential, and experimental; not belief is required, no faith is needed. Only the courage to experience is needed. Only the courage to experience is needed, and that is what is lacking.

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.
