Eleven classic anecdotes provide starting points to demonstrate the relevance of Zen to every aspect of 21st-century life. From the professor so full of his own ideas that he has no room for any new learning, to the monastery cook who solves a koan by kicking over a jug of water, readers will see themselves, their friends, and even modern-day celebrities and politicians reflected in the characters who populate these fascinating Zen stories. In each chapter, following the discussion of the story at hand, Osho responds to questions from his audience about matters of love, life, relationships, and “the search.” Throughout the book he emphasizes the importance both of honoring our “roots” in the simple pleasures of everyday life, and nourishing the “wings” that allow us to experience our connection with that which is universal, transcendent, and eternal.

    Heaven and hell are not geographical. If you go in search of them you will never find them anywhere, because they are within you, they are psychological.

    Infinite space exists between you and your body – infinite space, I say. An unbridgeable gap exists between you and your body.

    The mind is always in a hurry, and the mind is always in search of instantaneous realizations. For the mind, to wait is very difficult, almost impossible.
