Publisher's Summary

In this age of information overload, it’s refreshing to come upon a unique voice. Osho speaks directly to you - he is speaking the truth. Osho calls Sufism a core source of wisdom in the world. In this series of nine chapters, Osho comments on Sufi stories and statements and responds to questions from his audience - which are also our questions. He talks on a vast range of topics, from personal relationships, society, death and rebirth to the ultimate experience of dissolving into the greater existence. A recurrent theme throughout several Sufi stories.

“A stream, from its source in far-off mountains, passing through every kind and description of countryside, at last reached the sands of the desert. 

'At last…every consciousness reaches a point of cul-de-sac, a point which Sufis call 'the desert'. The desert is a point where you start feeling you are disappearing. The desert is a point where you feel you are dying. The desert is a point when you feel utterly hopeless, meaningless, a point where you start contemplating suicide, a point where you cannot figure it out - what to do, what not to do, to be or not to be. One day or other, every consciousness has to face the desert because without passing through the desert, you will never really be mature.” (Osho)

Mostly Q&A

This OSHO audio book is mostly question and answer with sannyasins. Three chapters each contain a parable and OSHO’s commentary on each parable. Two Q&A chapters follow each parable chapter.
