"As you savor the chapters, you´ll discover that Osho is like a Zen archer. Almost poetically he circles his target, surveying it over and over again from many positions before he draws back his bow and lets the arrow fly." Robert Rimmer, USA. Author of The Harrad Experiment and Proposition 31

"Indian mystic Osho has been one of the most successful mixers of Eastern philosophies with Western therapeutic techniques." Russel Chandler, Understanding the New Age

"The Upanishads talk about ultimate wisdom, Osho tells you how to live it" R.E. Gussner, Dept of Religion, University of Vermont, USA

"It is a religion for the irreligious, for the agnostic, for the unbeliever, for the rationalist." Khushwant Singh, Former editor of The Times of India; author and historian

"Osho is a mystical giant, a flowering of a unique intelligence and one of those rare humans ex-pressing himself with joy." Paul Reps, author of Zen Flesh, Zen Bones

"The teachings of Osho, in fact, encompass many religions, but he is not defined by any of them. He is an illuminating speaker on Zen, Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, Christianity and ancient Greek philosophy...and also a prolific author." Nevill Drury, Dictionary of Mysticism and the Occult, USA

"He discourses with eloquent familiarity on virtually all the world´s great mystics - Zen masters, Hassids, Sufis, Bauls, Buddha, Lao-Tzu, Jesus.… Though he "knocks the mind," Osho is an intellectual´s guru, and his message is aimed not at spiritual sheep but at rebels and risk takers - people who consider themselves intelligent, adventurous, and independent, and want to be more so." Annie Gottlieb, Author of Do You Believe in Magic?

"He had provided us a rare insight into our lives and times. He has ridiculed us, pushed us...hurt us, and thereby, made richer human beings out of us. He made us think for ourselves; forced us to reject him, and by that act of rejection, brought us closer to him -and in a strange kind of way, closer to ourselves." Pritish Nandy, JAIN TV presenter; former Editor, Publisher of The Illustrated Weekly, India

"Osho has a unique identity of his own. Our worldly life can become more fruitful through meditation and people can evolve towards a better society with the help of Osho´s wisdom." Rt. Hon´ble Shri Girija Prasad Koirala, Prime Minister of Nepal, 17th of May, 1998

"Treatises on Buddhism are often dry and reverential, if not tediously scholastic, and if Osho´s treatment is not canonical, it compensates by throbbing with life, humor, penetrating insight and the continual provocation to think for oneself." Guy Claxton, Author of Noises from the Darkroom

"Osho speaks the language of today´s Yug Bhasha. His message is for the whole world." Vice-President of India, Krishnakant

"Osho is one of the most important educators and philosophical and religious leaders in the late 20th century...I firmly believe that hundreds and thousands ...would be thrilled, delighted and gain a new perspective on life by reading his books." Robert Rimmer, author The Harvard Experiment and Proposition 31

"A great mystic, a great philosopher.... In his own way Osho captured the essence of ancient wisdom, related it to contemporary needs, tempered it with the modern times and became a powerful messenger of eternal Indian thought and Indian wisdom." Dr. Manmohan Singh, former finance minister of India,

"Osho is certainly a religious man, an intelligent human, and one of those rare humans expressing himself with joy." Paul reps, author of Zen Flesh, Zen Bones

"Here is somebody who fuses everything and makes it understandable to people, and it makes sense. And he also challenges very fixed beliefs, challenges religions which have tradition and ritual and so forth." Aroon Purie, Editor of India Today

"Wit and playfulness are a tremendously serious transcendence of evil, and this is one thing that Osho understood better than any contemporary teacher that I can think of. Gurdjieff had an element of that in his teachings, but certainly in the past fifty years there has not existed a teacher in the world who understood the value of playfulness and wit quite so well as Osho." Tom Robbins, author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Still Life with Woodpecker and Jitterbug Perfume and others.

"Osho is such a vision that stands for the welfare of the whole of humanity, transcending the narrow boundaries of religions. Though today´s man is so caught up in his myriad problems, all of Osho´s books and discourses suggest simple and easy ways for man´s liberation." Lokendra Bahadur Chand, the former premier, of Nepal

"Osho is not trying to purvey information but a truth that bypasses conscious thought and all that belongs to it, just as the most important activities of human beings bypass the mind." Bernard Levin, Journalist, commentator and writer
