Description

My vision of the new man is of a rebel, of a man who is in search of his original self, of his original face. A man who is ready to drop all masks, all pretensions, all hypocrisies, and show to the world what he, in reality, is.

Osho perceives man as becoming increasingly alienated from his inner self, gradually losing his natural innocence and creativity in the mindless quest for worldly power and success. To appear strong, the average man suppresses his innate qualities of love and compassion, thus widening the chasm within. For Osho, the ideal man is Zorba, the Buddha—a perfect blend of matter and soul. Inherently rebellious, this New Man experiences no division between the outer and the inner self. And, because he lives naturally and consciously without any guilt or conflict, he can claim the whole world as his own.

This seamless collection of discourses takes the reader through the various stages of man's evolution: from Adam to slave, Son, homosexual, Priest and Politician, until he attains the pinnacle of his consciousness as the Rebel or Zorba. Sparkling with anecdotes and enriched with brilliant repartee as well as deeply perceptive responses to the numerous questions asked of Osho by his listeners, The Book of Man is a remarkable blend of wisdom and wit.
