Banyen's Description: 

As the creator and inspirer of radical contemporary therapies and active meditations, Osho is widely seen as a major contributor to the science and art of inner transformation. Most of his teachings come to us through parables and stories, as he was a grand storyteller. “Never Born, Never Died—only visited this planet Earth between December 1, 1931 and January 19, 1990” is his epitaph. Even after his death, he promises to be available and asks that he always be referred to in the present tense. Originally known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, he changed his name to “Osho” during the last year of his life. A website devoted to his teachings is:

All four volumes of the original texts are contained in this new volume, The Book of Secrets, which consists of Osho’s spontaneous discourses on an ancient scripture on tantra by Lord Shiva. Here Shiva teaches 112 techniques of meditation which many believe are the basis of all meditation techniques. Here, tantra is described as a spiritual path of surrender and love—it is a way to utilize the sexual force to transform humankind from ordinariness into “Divine Cosmic Being.” Tantra penetrates and transcends the mysteries of love and sex to enable us to reach our higher consciousness.

You won’t find a typical lecture here, but brilliant discourse—a kind of story or poetry. The Book of Secrets is not a series of answers, but a set of keys. It is instructive, thought-provoking, funny, and truly inspiring, and in the end you will feel as if you have learned something not only about tantra and meditation, but also about every aspect of spirituality.

I am not teaching philosophy to you, I am sharing my truth with you. Don’t ask for definitions. If you have the courage, then take the plunge into the experience that is made available here: take a jump into meditation, and you will know.

Publisher’s Description: 

In this comprehensive and practical guide, the secrets of the ancient science of Tantra become available to a contemporary audience for the first time. Confined to small, hidden mystery schools for centuries, and often misunderstood and misinterpreted today. Tantra is not just a collection of techniques to enhance sexual experience. As Osho shows in these pages, it is a complete science of self-realizatoin, based on the cumulative wisdom of centuries of exploration into the meaning of life and consciousness. Tantra-the very word means technique-is a set of powerful, transformative tools that can be used to bring new meaning andjoy to every aspect of our daily lives.
