Philosophia Perennis

Talks on Pythagoras, The Philosopher and Mystic

Many of us know Pythagoras’ famous theorem in geometry but few of us are aware that he also traveled extensively in search of truth, learning from many mystery schools.

Being both mathematician and mystic, he was the first enlightened person to experiment with creating a synthesis between science and mysticism. So Pythagoras is a man close to Osho’s heart, with this understanding that materialism and spirituality – East and West, body and soul – exist together, as complementary parts of a harmonious whole.

All that remains of Pythagoras’ mystical teachings are these Golden Verses of Pythagoras, on which Osho expands, giving us insights into Pythagoras’ profound understanding of the mysteries of existence, and his commonsense approach to life.

  The Hidden Harmony

 

The Hidden Harmony

On the Greek Philosopher Heraclitus and his Teaching

Heraclitus says, 'The hidden harmony is better than the obvious. Opposition brings concord. Out of discourse comes the fairest harmony. It is in changing that things find repose.' Osho weaves together the fragments of the Greek Mystic Heraclitus to reveal the startling implications of the difference between logic – Aristoteles' intellectual doctrine about what is true – and logos, the existential experience of truth which Heraclitus lived.

  Zarathustra: A God That Can Dance

 

Zarathustra: A God That Can Dance

In the world's first line-by-line commentary on Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra, Osho unravels the mystery of man's three metamorphoses – from camel to lion to child. He sets the record straight about the meaning of Nietzsche's concept of superman and shows how we ourselves can become that man.

'In this book Osho takes Nietzsche's book 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra' and rescues him from the blight of history, restoring his innocence and turning this great work into a celebration feast that we can all enjoy and appreciate.'
Oscar Mann, Consultant, United Nations

  Zarathustra: The Laughing Prophet

Zarathustra: The Laughing Prophet

Osho uses Nietzsche's diatribe against man's beliefs in his own impotence as a means of clarifying the true nature of the superman – Nietzsche's concept that was so tragically perverted by Adolf Hitler.

He unveils the superman as a man inalienably connected to the cosmos, a mystic and an innocent, cleansed of the need for conquest. He also discusses Nietzsche's concept of will-to-power, revealing how it can integrate man and lead him towards creativity.

  Theologia Mystica

Theologia Mystica
Discourses on the Treatise of St. Dionysius

Osho says of these letters by Dionysius, first bishop of Athens, to his disciple Timothy: 'His whole book is written with a disguise, as if it is a treatise on theology; mysticism is just somewhere by the side, secondary, not primary. Hence the name Theologia Mystica, as if mysticism is only a consequence of getting deep into the world of theology. Just the reverse is the case.' (Also available on audio).

'St. Dionysius, little known except to specialists and obscure even to them, is rediscovered and revivified in these amazing discourses.' David J. Burrows, M.A., Ph.D., of Rutgers University
