The First Principle

In The First Principle Osho captures the unique, colorful, seemingly-crazy spirit of Zen, through talks on a collection of Zen stories anecdotes of the often-bizarre interchanges between master and disciple in the quest for truth.

From these anecdotes Osho distils Zenís pragmatic essence for the reader and conveys an alive understanding of itís message "the first principle" that authentic truth cannot be said with words, it can only be lived. Speaking to the contemporary, modern reader without robbing these old tales of their magic, charm and humor, Osho reminds us that "you are the shrine for the first principle.

So the only way is to go within. Turn in. That is what meditation is all about." In addition to these stories, Osho also answers questions and tells jokes on topics such as living with the contradictions of life, genuine longing as distinct from spiritual greed, what is maturity, and how one can be in an authoritative work role constantly challenging us to discover greater self-awareness and consciousness from within.
