This book contains views and discourses on Kabir. According to Osho, these songs of Kabir are nothing but the overflowing of that melody that he has heard and these songs are the floods that he has received into his innermost being. These songs are no longer ordinary songs. These songs are not only of a poet but those of a mystic-the one who knows by living it; one who has tasted God, who is drunk with God.
In this series of ten discourses Osho discusses some of the most beautiful songs of Kabir. In one particularly fascinating discourse Osho speaks on the seven chakras, the seven stages through which each individual must pass, and a categorization according to which chakra we function from.
Another discourse examines love as "the only miracle there is," and relationships.
In addition, Osho answers questions on subjects as diverse as homosexuality, prayer, being oneself, the distinction between ego and individuality, trust, the male and female within each individual, and humanity′s addiction to misery.
