Zen says that if you want to find truth, you have to seek. Zen also says don’t seek, because then you won’t find. This is why Zen is called “the path of paradox.”
Zen: The Path of Paradox explores this paradoxical world, this distinctive approach to life. Through his commentaries, Osho illustrates how the Zen anecdotes are not just ancient stories, but that their message is intensely relevant to our own concerns: corruption in politics, truth and lies, mindfulness, dying gracefully without fear.
In alternate chapters, he responds to questions from listeners on a wide range of topics from daily life.
“If you decide to become a buddha this moment, nobody is barring your path. Only a decision is missing, only a commitment to buddhahood is missing. Nobody is hindering you, nobody is standing in your way.”
