Always outspoken and uncompromising, Osho declares that all the organized religions that exist today are dead, they don't move with the times. And dead, they cannot be of help to the alive, questioning, questing individual. Not only are they of no use, but they are positively harmful. Osho exposes the conditioning and enslavement of man by organized religions, and expounds his own vision of true religiousness - the flowering of the individual. He answers fundamental questions such as: Does man need religion? Is the Devil needed for God to exist? Is the concept of God-the-Father a helpful one? What is real prayer? What is the relationship between morality and religion? Why are all religions against sex? What is the connection between religions and AIDS? This book is a challenge for all who consider themselves followers of an orthodox religion.
