In this series of talks, Tao: The Three Treasures, Osho embraces Lao Tzu’s insights from the Tao Te Ching and combines them with his own experience and understanding. This has the effect of leading the listener into the world of Lao Tzu while bringing Lao Tzu and his experiences of truth into our time. Two MP3 CDs are included in this set that comprises over 50 hours of talks!
Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique “Active Meditations” are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is easier to experience the thought-free and relaxed state of meditation.
“To become extraordinary is simple: only effort is needed, refinement is needed, cultivation is needed. It is a deep inner discipline. You can become very very refined, something absolutely unearthly, but to be ordinary is really the most extraordinary thing. No effort will help – effortlessness is needed. No practice will help, no methods, no means will be of any help, only understanding. Even meditation will bot be of any help. To become a Buddha, meditation will be of help. To become Lao Tzu, even meditation won’t help – just understanding. Just understanding life as it is, and living it with courage; not escaping from it, not hiding from it, facing it with courage, whatsoever it is, good or bad, divine or evil, heaven or hell.” ~From TAO: The Three Treasures by Osho
“The Tao has no form. If it can be spoken of, it is not the Tao. The Tao is emptiness. If it seems full, it is not the Tao. Emptiness is its substance. It is like shouting int he mountains: the valley answers.” ~Lao Tzu
