Synopsis: One of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of our time presents the Sutra of Forty-Two Chapters, sharing his unique insights into its profound ancient wisdom
This rich and refreshing book invites us to travel with the Buddha on a path of radical wisdom. In his inimitable style, Osho interprets the Sutra of Forty-Two Chapters—a scripture compiled by a Chinese emperor in the first century CE—using wonderful contemporary anecdotes to make profound points.
As we laugh or shake our heads at the folly of the characters in the stories, or marvel at their goodness, Osho engages us at every level to let us experience the Buddha’s teachings and take in their timeless truths. As he writes in this powerful book: "No belief is required to travel with Buddha. You can come to him with all your skepticism—he accepts and welcomes you, and he says, 'Come with me.'"
