Osho is a contemporary mystic whose life and teaching have influenced millions of people of all ages and in all walks of life. Osho said that the purpose of his work is to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being, which he often described as “Zorba the Buddha”, capable of enjoying both earthly pleasures such as “Zorba the Greek” (the character created by Nikos Kazantzakis) and the silent serenity of Gautama the Buddha.
All aspects of Osho’s work permeate in his vision, which embraces both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest expressions of Western science and technology. Osho has given a revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with a new approach to meditation that takes into account the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His original “active meditations” are designed to let go, first of all, the stress accumulated in the body and mind in order to facilitate the experience of the state of meditation, without thoughts or tensions.
