"The presence of the Master is like a breeze that passes lightly through the trees, a silent song, a message rich in meaning but without words. He offers it to you. Now it is your responsibility - and your freedom - to receive it or not to receive it. " Osho, Upanishad, # 19

Osho, Upanishad, # 19

Osho is a contemporary mystic whose life and teaching have influenced millions of people of all ages in every life path. Speaking of his work, Osho said that he helps create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often described this new human being as "Zorba the Buddha", capable of enjoying both earthly pleasures such as "Zorba the Greek" and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha. All aspects of Osho's work are imbued with his vision that embraces both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest expressions of Western science and technology. He is also known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that recognizes the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His original "active meditations" are designed to let go, first of all, the stress accumulated in the body and mind in order to facilitate the experience of the state of meditation, without thoughts or tensions. Osho left the body on 19 January 1990. A few weeks before he died he was asked what would happen to his work when he left. He replied: "My faith in existence is absolute, if there is any truth in what I say, it will survive me. People interested in my work will just bring the torch on, without imposing anything on anyone ... I want them to grow as individuals and to develop qualities like love, around which no church can be built; like awareness, which nobody can manipulate; like the celebration and the fresh wonder that characterizes the eyes of a child. I want my people to know themselves, not live for someone else. And the road is inside of itself. "
