Description

Osho has spoken at length about the lives and philosophies of more than 300 mystics, including Lao Tzu. His absolute love is with Lao Tzu and Osho claims, “I feel deep sympathy for him. ” Speaking on Jesus Christ he says, "I feel that we are not meant to meet. 

" He also says, “We remain parallel; we never meet. He is so sad, so burdened, and he goes on to say that while Buddha was supremely beautiful, he was one-sided in his focus.

Understanding Tao

In Absolute Tao, Osho invites us to explore the ancient philosophy of Tao. He explains that Tao is not a religion, but a state of being. It's about living in harmony with nature and the universe. It's a fascinating concept that can change the way you see the world.

The Power of Now

Osho emphasizes the importance of living in the present moment. He suggests that we often get caught up in the past or future, missing out on the beauty of now. By focusing on the present, we can find peace and happiness. It's a powerful message that can transform your life.

Embracing Change

Change is a constant part of life, and Osho encourages us to embrace it. He explains that resisting change only leads to suffering. Instead, we should accept and adapt to change, seeing it as an opportunity for growth. This is a valuable lesson for anyone struggling with life's ups and downs.

The Art of Non-Doing

One of the key concepts in Absolute Tao is the art of non-doing, or 'wu wei'. Osho explains that this doesn't mean being lazy or inactive. Instead, it's about letting things happen naturally, without forcing them. It's a unique perspective that can help you find balance in your life.

The Journey Within

Osho encourages us to look within ourselves for answers. He believes that true wisdom and understanding come from self-discovery. By taking the time to explore our inner selves, we can find a deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment. It's a journey worth taking.
