Osho says that laughter is "the very essence of Zen." And though the theme of this series is meditation - watching, remaining alert and aware - as the only way to truth, Osho encourages us to, "be happy and meditation will follow."
There is a wonderful chapter on laughter, Hotei the Laughing Buddha, and enlightenment.
As Osho says, "This is the whole effort of all the masters: to create a sudden clash of thunder so those who are fast asleep can be awakened."
