by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
Osho recounts how Lao Tzu, at the age of 90, was leaving for the Himalayas to spend his final days. Until this time he had never written down his insights, but at the border a guard (who was also his disciple) imprisoned the mystic and refused to release him until he wrote down something of what he had come to know. That is how this unique text, the Tao Te Ching, was born. Osho comments on this classic text from his uniquely fresh perspective, and also answers questions about the I Ching, growth and spirituality in the context of Tao, the concept of sudden versus gradual enlightenment, and much more.
