This set includes two books (1) Ecstasy: The Language of Existence and (2) The Forgotten Language of the Heart, and are the transcribed version of the lectures given by Osho. These books or the 'Upanishads' as the author himself brands them, are in the question-answer form.
Osho, the thinker par excellence, gives in these books his thought-provoking views in a clear and unambiguous language. It is said that the clarity of thought is best represented by the manner you put tem, and this 'great achievement of our age' Osho, as the famous poetess and thinker Amrita Pritam puts, has no peer in this field.
Questioned by his disciples on the various physical, physiological and para-psychological aspects of human life vis-a-vi nature, he master seer explains tem in a most lucid yet somewhat laconic manner, punctuating his observations with very cogent and witty anecdotes. Delving deep into the phenomenon of the astral and physical world, the author takes the reader beyond the purview of the mind, and questions the very purpose of human existence and its utility in the universe.
Explaining the most abstract meta-physical conceptions by his erudite scholarship Osho admirably succeeds in shedding off the slough of obscurantist leaning to bring out the pristine reality.
What makes this set eminently readable is the way of their presentation. The well-syntaxed small sentences leaves no scope for any ambiguity whatever. Osho is one of the most modern thinkers of our times whose arguments rest on the solid scientific reasoning.
An eminently readable set.
Osho is unquestionably one of the greatest performers of our time - whose true impact, I believe, will e discovered decades later, when the history of this era will be written. - Pritish Nandy: The Illustrated Weekly of India.
In our world there are so many philosophers who hold on to different philosophies in their hands. And those hands or centuries have been striking each other and the philosophies negating each other's logic. And I have seen than it is only Osho, who, detached from all these philosophies, has been propounding that inner experience which is one, whatever and wherever it might be, it is one. And that is the greatest flowering of human consciousness. - Amrita Pritam, Poetess, novelist, and thinker.
Osho has not only justified his command over worldly matters, but proved that he is the intellectual giant of the 20th century. - The Daily Bombay
Osho is really a free-thinking agnostic. He is profoundly erudite and can explain the most abstract conceptions in simple language illustrated with witty anecdotes. He mocks gods, prophets, scriptures and religious practices and gives a totally new dimension to religion. - Khushwant Singh, The Indian Express ,
