Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 817261229X, Paperback)

This book is a glorious mixture of no-nonsense Zen and sublime poetic mystery. Being ordinary, says Osho, is the most extraordinary phenomenon possible. He uses stories about many different Zen masters to illustrate the timeless power and magic of Zen and its potential to transform contemporary humanity. A Zen master is nothing special: he meditates, but also goes to the forest to cut wood because winter is approaching, and has a wonderful sense of humor. He does many things just like an ordinary man but with an extraordinary awareness. Zen doesn't believe in renouncing the world or not renouncing the world; the basic thing is just to be alert wherever we are. Zen gives us total freedom; our lifestyle doesn't matter. All that counts is our awareness, which will take us back to our original source. "If you are courageous and you don't go backwards, if you don't fall back to the ego and you go on and on, there is a hidden center within you that you have been carrying for many lives. That is your soul. the atman, the self." Osho
