by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
The ten paintings that tell the famous Zen story of a farmer in search of his lost bull provide an allegorical expression of the search for enlightenment. Originally Taoist, The Ten Bulls were repainted by the 12th-century Chinese Zen master, Kakuan, and first appeared in the West in American author Paul Reps' book, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. These discourses are Osho's commentaries on the paintings, and on the poetry and prose which accompany them in Paul Reps' book. In The Search Osho dismantles probably every "why" the mind can contrive, and you may well find that you learn more about yourself in one chapter than in dozens of other books!
