At his iconoclastic best and in the presence of journalists from the German magazine, Bunte, OSHO overturns the applecart of decorum, making fun of the Nazi regime and recounting some of his most outrageous jokes.
This question-and-answer series is an existential illustration of a contemporary Zen Master at work. An additional section of inspiring photographs and touchingly intimate interviews make this lovingly designed book quite simply irresistible.
OSHO also creates one of his most powerful meditations, the Mystic Rose Meditation:
'This is absolutely my meditation. I have invented many meditations, but perhaps this will be the most essential and fundamental one. It can take over the whole world.... If you cry and weep without any reason, just as an exercise, a meditation...nobody will believe it.'
'Tears have never been accepted as meditation. And I tell you, they are not only a meditation, they are a medicine also. All that this world needs is a good cleansing of the heart of all the inhibitions of the past.
And laughter and tears can do both. Tears will take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and laughter will take all that is preventing your ecstasy.'
'OSHO's speech just flows. It's not the 'what' but the 'how' that captures you.'
