The Book of Women
The Book of Woman delves into the mystique that is a woman. We get a view of woman as understood by Osho. The book goes into all the details of womanhood and explains all the functions of a woman. The topic is dealt with great sensitivity and vividness. Osho talks about relationships, family, motherhood, birth control; all the issues that are central to the existence of a woman. A woman should not try to ape a man. She has an existence of her own and she should revel in her feminity and not be repulsed by it. Harmony in life can be achieved by a synchronisation between head and heart. The heart should rule a woman all the time and the head should follow and supply it with reason. Osho reviles the institution of marriage and calls it a shackle for a woman. Men use marriage to monopolise women and limit her. Osho concludes by saying that woman is a mystery and even trying to unravel the mystery would be a big mistake on the part of a man. It is better to let her remain a beautiful mystery and enjoy the parts nature allows you play as a Man or a Woman. Although the book is about Women, it can be read by a sensitive person of any gender. About the author: OSHO or Acharya Rajneesh as he was known in his early days, was born in Madhya Pradesh in 1931.
