on the great mystic Ashtavakra
Powerful and penetrating
discourses on the famous dialogue between the mystic Ashtavakra
one of Osho's favorite ancient Indian masters and King Janak.
By the end of the dialogue,
King Janak is enlightened. Says Osho, 'There are no other statements
anywhere as pure, transcendental and beyond time and space as these.
Man has many scriptures,
but none are comparable to the Gita of Ashtavakra. Before it the Vedas
pale, the Upanishads are a mere whisper. Even the Bhagavadgita does
not have the majesty found in the Ashtavakra Samhita it is
simply unparalleled. Neither society, nor politics, nor any other
institution of human life had any influence on the statements of Ashtavakra.
words penetrate you, they will start awakening your sleeping soul.
These words will thrill you. These words will fill you with ecstasy.
These words will shock you. With these words a revolution can take
place.... This is why I have chosen the Ashtavakra Gita: I have chosen
it because you are ready.' Osho
