Publisher's Summary

The Dhammapada is a collection of sayings of the Gautama the Buddha in verse form and one of the most widely read and best known Buddhist scriptures. This is volume two of a 12-volume series of Osho Talks, bringing Buddha's Dhammapada into the 21st century and opening them for a new understanding for contemporary people.

In alternating chapters, Osho comments on specific sutras of Buddha and responds to questions from his audience, deepening the understanding. "My talking on Buddha is not just a commentary: It is creating a bridge. Buddha is one of the most important masters who has ever existed on the Earth - incomparable, unique." Osho removes the dust and many misunderstandings gathered on Buddha's teachings of 2,500 years and emphasizes meditation as the greatest introduction by Buddha to the development of human consciousness.

The setting of these talks is an open-air auditorium at the Osho International Meditation Resort in Pune, India. Osho and his audience are surrounded by trees, and elements of nature - the chirping of birds, wind, and the cracking bamboos as well as the distant sound of the local Pune-Mumbai morning train - are all parts of these recordings, giving them a truly existential flavor.

"I have been in tremendous love with Buddha; I think there is no other man on the Earth today who has loved Buddha as much as I.... I am giving Buddha a new color - his color, Buddha's color. I am trying to bring his reality to you."

"These words of Buddha come from eternal silence. They can reach you only if you receive them in silence." Osho Talks are "meditating talks", allowing the listener an experience of meditation.

Just just as good as part 1.

Osho seems to be the clearest and convincing , if convincing is needed. The only comparable teacher I can think of is Anthony De Mello. However , Osho and his sense off humor and analogies, definitely makes absorbing this information a lot easier and clear for me at least.

Osho - silence, shared in words

Much like the 1st and final instalment of the series, this is truly inspirational and life affirming. As always, 10+.
