For more than 35 years, Osho, a contemporary mystic, met with international audiences and addressed both the timeless and timely concerns of individuals seeking a greater understanding of themselves and their world. His talks were recorded live, have been remastered in high-quality MP3 sound, and are published here in their original series format.
In this series of talks, Osho introduces his audience to Gautama the Buddha and his great contribution to the development of human consciousness and the science of meditation. Each talk examines an excerpt from the classic Buddhist text known as the “Heart Sutra.”
With his unique ability to translate ancient and often obscure language into fresh and contemporary terms, Osho brings Buddha’s teachings to life and shows how they are even more relevant today than they were in Buddha’s time. His responses to questions from the audience further illuminate the ways in which Buddha’s message of pure awareness can inform and enrich every aspect of our everyday lives.
“Gautam Buddha is like the highest peak of the Himalayas, like Gourishankar – one of the purest beings, one of the most virgin souls, one of the rare phenomena on this earth.” – Osho: The Discipline of Transcendence Vol. 1
“These are the most important Sutras in the great Buddhist literature. Hence they are called The Heart Sutra; it is the very heart of the Buddhist message.” – Osho
“Buddhahood is not something to be attained. It already exists at the essential core of your being. It just needs to be uncovered. The buddha nature is found through the practice of looking inwards.” – Osho
“Osho, a contemporary Buddhist mystic also known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, gave many talks on the nature of Buddhism and its relevance to modern life before his death in 1990. This CD compiles 10 of his lectures, each touching on an excerpt from the Buddhist text ‘The Heart Sutra. Osho’s soothing voice and unhurried pace are perfectly suited to the wisdom he dispenses as he explains the fundamentals of Buddhism, couched in enlightening parables and simple terms. More than 16 hours in length, ‘The Heart Sutra: Osho Talks on Buddha’ holds a tremendous amount of information. Recommend it to customers interested in Buddhism or the works of Osho.” – Emlyn Freeman, New Age Retailer
