Emotions that we don’t know how to handle effectively lie at the core of so many difficulties in the life of the individual. They play a profound role in how we feel about ourselves, and can even affect our physical health. Expressing our emotions can often hurt others, but by repressing them — even in the benevolent guise of “self-control” — we risk hurting ourselves. Osho offers a third alternative, which is to understand the roots of our emotions and to develop the knack of watching them and learning from them. Osho’s unique insights into emotions, the workings of the mind, and the “being” of the individual go far beyond the understandings of conventional psychology.
Osho is a enlightened mystic whose wisdom, clarity and humor have touched the lives of millions of people around the world. His insights are creating the conducive atmosphere or ‘ Atma-Sphere ” for the emergence of what he calls the ‘New Man’ or Zorba the Buddha, the combination of celebration, dance and song of Zorba and the silence, stillness and meditation of the Buddha, the meditation of the East and the materialism of the West. Zorba the Buddha is a totally new human being who is an awakened one, and he is life-affirmative and free. When someone asked Osho the definition of religion, Osho replied: To be in romance with life is religion.
