Book Description
About the Author

Osho's unique contribution to the understanding of who we are defies categorization. Mystic and scientist, a rebellious spirit whose sole interest is to alert humanity to the urgent need to discover a new way of living. To continue as before is to invite threats to our very survival on this unique and beautiful planet.

His essential point is that only by changing ourselves, one individual at a time, can the outcome of all our 'selves' - our societies, our cultures, our beliefs, our world also change. The doorway to that change is meditation.

Osho the scientist has experimented and scrutinized all the approaches of the past and examined their effects on the modern human being and responded to their shortcomings by creating a new starting point for the hyperactive 21 Century mind: OSHO Active Meditations.

Once the agitation of a modern lifetime has started to settle, 'activity' can melt into 'passivity, a key starting point of real meditation. To support this next step. Osho has transformed the ancient 'art of listening' into a subtle contemporary methodology: the OSHO Talks. Here words become music, the listener discovers who is listening, and the awareness moves from what is being heard to the individual doing the listening. Magically. as silence arises, what needs to be heard is understood directly, free from the distraction of a mind that can only interrupt and interfere with this delicate process.

These thousands of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho's books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of these extemporaneous talks to international audiences As he puts it, 'So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you I am talking also for the future generations.


I have talked to you about satyam-shivam-sundaram, sat-chit-anand, hari-om- Ltat-sat, om-mani-padme-hum, om-shantih-shantih-shantih. These five I have chosen as the most significant, as the most deep-going. I will try to give you the meaning also, because that meaning will help the significance to become deeper. That meaning will not only touch your heart, it will also touch your intelligence- and you have to be touched in your totality to be transformed.

I will begin with the last one. That is the sound every Eastern scripture ends with: om-shantih-shantih-shantih. It means "The soundless sound, or the sound of silence, peace, peace, peace' - just giving you the sense of the whole scripture in these few telegraphic words. Every scripture in the East ends the same. It may be Hindu, it may be Buddhist, it may be Jaina- it doesn't matter. They are all different in their philosophies. They are all different in their theologies. They are different religions, continuously in controversy for at least ten thousand years. But strangely, they all end their scriptures with 'the sound of silence: peace, peace, peace.' It seems they are all different roots of this experience.

They may differ about their roots, about the description of their roots. They may quarrel, they may contradict each other, but as far as the end is concerned, when they reach the highest peak of consciousness, all that is found is the sound of silence and utter peace, so deep that they have to repeat it three times: peace, peace, peace.
