The Dhammapada is a collection of sayings of the Gautama the Buddha in verse form and one of the best-known Buddhist scriptures. This is volume nine of a 12-volume series of Osho Talks, bringing Buddha's Dhammapada into the 21st century and opening them for a new understanding for contemporary people.
In alternating chapters, Osho comments on specific sutras of Buddha and responds to questions from his audience, deepening their understanding.
"My talking on Buddha is not just a commentary: It is creating a bridge. Buddha is one of the most important masters who has ever existed on the Earth - incomparable, unique.
Buddha is a nonbeliever. He is not an atheist like Karl Marx or Friedrich Nietzsche; neither is he a theist like all the priests of all religions. He is an agnostic. He neither believes nor disbelieves; he is open. That is his great gift to the world: to be open to truth."
There has been one adjective applied more than any other to Gautama Buddha and that is the word, compassionate. In The Dhammapada, Osho speaks at length on compassion and the method by which one reaches to compassion. Compassion is the ultimate flowering of meditation, the transformation of all human energies so easily lost in anger, lust, envy and greed. These cannot be “conquered” or repressed, they can only be transcended. And the transcendence of those energies becomes compassion, freedom, wisdom.
The setting of these talks is an open-air auditorium at the Osho International Meditation Resort in Pune, India. Osho and his audience are surrounded by trees and elements of nature, the chirping of birds, wind, and the cracking bamboos as well as the distant sound of the local Pune – Mumbai morning train are all part of these recordings giving them a truly existential flavor.
