OSHO speaks on classic Hasidic stories compiled by the Jewish philosopher, Martin Buber, a work OSHO calls a tremendous service for seekers, adding that what D.T. Suzuki did for Zen, Buber has done for Hasidism.
These tales, small stories, have such a flavor. It is different from Zen, it is also different from Sufism. The Hasid loves, laughs, dances. His religion is not of celibacy, but of creation.'
The book is full of lighthearted wisdom, as OSHO adds a few of his own stories as well, saying that his jokes are not ordinary jokes.
'I don’t tell them to you just to make you laugh. No, they are not mere jokes. They are pointers. You should not just laugh and forget them, you should make them part of your understanding.'
