About the Author
Osho defies categorization. His thousands of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho’s books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it, “So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you… I am talking also for the future generations.”
Osho has been described by The Sunday Times in London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by American author Tom Robbins as “the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ.” Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people – along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha – who have changed the destiny of India.
About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha” – capable both of
enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha.
Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho’s talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest potential of today’s (and tomorrow’s) science and technology.
Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique OSHO Active Meditations are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.
Two autobiographical works by the author are available:

OSHO International Meditation Resort

Located 100 miles southeast of Mumbai in the thriving modern city of Pune, India, the OSHO International Meditation Resort is a holiday destination with a difference. The Meditation Resort is spread over 28 acres of spectacular gardens in a beautiful tree-lined residential area.
Each year the Meditation Resort welcomes thousands of people from more than 100 countries. The unique campus provides an opportunity for a direct personal experience of a new way of living – with more awareness, relaxation, celebration and creativity. A great variety of around-the-clock and around-the-year program options are available. Doing nothing and just relaxing is one of them! All programs are based on the OSHO vision of “Zorba the Buddha” – a qualitatively new kind of human being who is able both to participate creatively in everyday life and to relax into silence and meditation.
OSHO Meditations
A full daily schedule of meditations for every type of person includes methods that are active and passive, traditional and revolutionary, and in particular the OSHO Active Meditations . The meditations take place in what must be the world’s largest meditation hall, the OSHO Auditorium.
OSHO Multiversity
Individual sessions, courses and workshops cover everything from creative arts to holistic health, personal transformation, relationship and life transition, work-as-meditation, esoteric sciences, and the "Zen" approach to sports and recreation. The secret of the OSHO Multiversity’s success lies in the fact that all its programs are combined with meditation, supporting the understanding that as human beings we are far more than the sum of our parts.
OSHO Basho Spa
The luxurious Basho Spa provides for leisurely open-air swimming surrounded by trees and tropical green. The uniquely styled, spacious Jacuzzi, the saunas, gym, tennis courts…all these are enhanced by their stunningly beautiful setting.
A variety of different eating areas serve delicious Western, Asian and Indian vegetarian food – most of it organically grown especially for the Meditation Resort. Breads and cakes are baked in the resort’s own bakery.
Night life
There are many evening events to choose from – dancing being at the top of the list! Other activities include full-moon meditations beneath the stars, variety shows, music performances and meditations for daily life. Or you can just enjoy meeting people at the Plaza Café, or walking in the nighttime serenity of the gardens of this fairytale environment.
You can buy all your basic necessities and toiletries in the Galleria. The Multimedia Gallery sells a large range of OSHO media products. There is also a bank, a travel agency and a Cyber Café on-campus. For those who enjoy shopping, Pune provides all the options, ranging from traditional and ethnic Indian products to all of the global brand-name stores.
You can choose to stay in the elegant rooms of the OSHO Guesthouse, or for longer stays opt for one of the OSHO LivingIn program packages. Additionally there is a plentiful variety of nearby hotels and serviced TM


The Book of Secrets became an Osho “classic” shortly after it was first
published. And no wonder – it contains not only a comprehensive overview of
Osho’s unique, contemporary take on the eternal human quest for meaning, but
also the most comprehensive set of meditation techniques available to help find
that meaning within our own lives.
As Osho explains in the first chapter: These are the oldest, most ancient
techniques. But you can call them the latest, also, because nothing can be
added to them. They have taken in all the possibilities, all the ways of cleaning
the mind, transcending the mind. Not a single method could be added to [these]
one hundred and twelve methods. It is the most ancient and yet the latest, yet
the newest. Old like old hills – the methods seem eternal – and they are new
like a dewdrop before the sun, because they are so fresh. These one hundred
and twelve methods constitute the whole science of transforming mind.
A few things will help the reader’s understanding: Each chapter of The Book
of Secrets was originally delivered as an extemporaneous talk, addressed to a
gathering of seekers from all over the world, from all walks of life. This gives
the text an immediacy and fluidity that is hard to achieve in “written” texts, and
the reader is encouraged to approach the book (and all Osho books, for that
matter) in that spirit – like taking a walk on the beach, not in search of a
specific seashell but with an openness to the unfamiliar and unexpected.
In the opening chapter, Osho urges the reader to experiment with each of the
meditation techniques he will be talking about – “just play with it for three
days,” he suggests. And he emphasizes the word play. Not to be serious, not to
make strenuous efforts or discipline yourself, but play. And when you find a
technique that really seems to “click” with you, one that you enjoy and that
seems to bring something new and fresh into your life, then you can explore it
more deeply.
Each chapter that focuses on describing specific meditation techniques is
followed by a chapter of questions from those who were present during the
talks. In most cases, their questions relate to the techniques given in the
previous chapter. So, as you start to experiment with a technique, it will be
helpful to look into these chapters for some extra hint, some greater depth of
understanding, or response to a question that might have arisen for you in your
Finally, remember not to mistake the map for the destination. The Book of
Secrets is not a series of answers, it’s a set of keys. Osho promises at the very
beginning that this set of keys is complete, not missing even one pattern for
even a single door. The key to your own door is in here somewhere. All you
have to do is try the keys, one after the other, until you find the one that fits.
Then open the door and see for yourself what lies within.
