DetailsIn this title, Osho talks on the following topics:love... question... truth... gratitude... existence... energy... answer... nietzsche... hotei... nobel... Talks on the Yoga Sutras of PatanjaliVol. 2 of the Series: Yoga: The Science of the SoulThe practice of Yoga is now being widely embraced by the West in an endless range of evolving formats, particularly with added movement components. It is therefore very timely that Osho with his razor-sharp insight, respect, and compassion for the individual, brings a wider understanding of the potential benefits of Yoga for contemporary people in these talks on The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.Patanjali lived around 400BC and although Yoga was already in existence, he was able through his unique combination of logician, poet, and mystic, to present Yoga in a way that could be of help to all. And that continues to be true today.Osho describes Patanjali as a mathematician of the ultimate poetry; a mystic with a scientific mind, who analyzes and dissects as if in a lab, but his lab is one of the inner being. Patanjali has searched deeply into human energy and devised many techniques; he has found that in order to meditate, the body, mind, and being need to be healthy. His discovery that the body energy becomes whole with the chanting of om, the basic sound of existence, and his findings of the deep connection between breathing and thinking have been of great importance to generations of meditators. His discovery that the body "The body is your anchor, your ship will lead you to the other shore. The body keeps the treasure, the seeds of the divine within you protected"ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Osho defies categorisation, reflecting everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. He is synonymous with a revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation and an approach to meditation which specifically adddresses the accelerated pace of contemporary life. Osho's books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaenous 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."Osho has been described by The Sunday Times in London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by American Author Tom Robbins as "the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ". Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people - along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha - who have changed the destiny of India. About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this human being as "Zorba the Buddha"- capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho's talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest potential of today's (and tomorrow's) science and technology. Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique Osho Active Meditations are designed first to release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.ABOUT THE PUBLISHER: Diamond Books is one of the largest publications in India.
