Early in this century a Lebanese poet, Kahlil Gibran, produced a book that has become universally known and loved for its beauty and the timeless themes it addresses. But because Gibran was a poet, not a mystic, in The Prophet he could give us only a work of imagination, a glimpse into a dream that is the mystic's everyday reality.
In this book OSHO speaks on the themes that Gibran addresses through the fictional prophet, Almustafa:
love, children, giving, work; eating, drinking, and clothes; joy and sorrow; houses and homes, buying and selling; crime and punishment.
OSHO's commentary on The Prophet, is the perfect companion to Gibran's work for every lover of truth and beauty.
“Kahlil Gibran… The very name brings so much ecstasy and joy that it is impossible to think of another name comparable to him. Just hearing the name, bells start ringing in the heart which do not belong to this world. Kahlil Gibran is pure music, a mystery, such that only poetry can sometimes grasp, but only sometimes.”
