In Zen: The Path of Paradox, Osho suggests Zen as a possible bridge between East and West, and between the scientific and the spiritual. Without science, Osho said, the East has lost much; without meditation, the West has lost much. I am trying to bring together East and West, because together they will create the whole. Osho encourages the reader to throw off the accumulated knowing of a lifetime--to let go of physical, mental, and emotional tensions, to relax into the flow of an extraordinary discourse and become receptive to the present moment and the potential within.
Praise for Osho: [Osho's] position as an important mystic and philosopher is supported by an international following and host of publications. His work is that of all great religious leaders--bringing God to man...Osho's lively appeal: jokes, limericks, verse and tales, combined with traditional religious themes.
