Talks on the Isha Upanishad Osho goes into the depths of these eternal questions while speaking on the sutras of the Isha Upanishad — the most ancient words of wisdom available to mankind.

For over 35 years, Osho spoke to international audiences of seekers, addressing their essential questions and concerns. Osho himself says that he is neither a prophet nor a philosopher; he is simply sharing his own experience. Spoken with authority, clarity, sharpness and humor, his insights address both the timeless and timely concerns that tend to escape our notice in the clamor and overload of daily life.

Osho is an Indian mystic, guru and philosopher. He has spoken on major spiritual traditions including Jainism, Hinduism, Hassidism, Tantrism, Christianity, Buddhism, on a variety of Eastern and Western mystics and on sacred scriptures such as the Upanishads.

Verified Purchase. There are Upanishads and Isha is the smallest of them all - it can be written on a post card - yet Isha is said to be one of the greatest creations of those who have meditated'. The word Isha means divine. The divinity of this Upanishad lies in its contents.

It doesn't believe in any devil, any satan ,or in any hell, because all is divine. The Upanishad is not saying to renounce the world as the world itself is the manifestation of God.

But it says: don't possess, don't become owners of persons or things: just use them as a gift of the universe. Go on enjoying wherever you are. Also be fully aware that nothing belongs to us. Idam Na Mama: This is not Mine - we come empty handed in the world we go empty-handed. The world is a gift, so enjoy while it is there. In Osho's words ' When you have something, enjoy it, when you don't have it , enjoy not having it-- It is the enjoyment that makes the difference.

If you have a palace to live in , enjoy. If you don't have , then enjoy a hut and the hut becomes a palace. Then live under a tree and enjoy it. Don't miss the tree and the flowers and the freedom and the birds and the air and the sun.

And when you are in a palace don't miss it - enjoy the marble and the chandeliers. The Isha says: If you have to choose between action and meditation , you will fall into blinding darkness if you choose action alone ; and the darkness will be even greater if you choose meditation alone. So Isha Upanishad is trying to make it clear that never choose, remain choicelessly aware and accept life as it is. Don't impose any choice of your own. If you choose either of the two , you will fall into darkness or greater darkness.

So Osho says to choose both and live a life of fullness , wholeness and totality that is, a full material existence with a full spiritual life. In Osho's words:'be a spiritual materialist or a material spiritualist'. I Am That is the ultimate statement of the Upanishads. I Am That. One simply is. For I Myself Am That.

The book consists of sixteen chapters of which the commentary of the Upanishad extends to only four chapters and the remaining twelve chapters are. Some of Osho's observations in this book are: God is presence, not a person. Hence all worshipping is sheer stupidity. Prayerfulness is needed not prayer. A child always thinks good days are to come, the old man always thinks good days, golden days are past.

The child is future oriented, the old man is past oriented and the young man, if he is really young lives in the present. Nostalgia is the longing to go back to the good old days when you were neither good nor old.

If you are forced to live in heaven , it is hell, and if you choose hell it is heaven, because it is your own choice. Parables, anecdotes and simple jokes are aplenty in this book. One sample joke: The army recruit from the country was being given his physical examination. The recruit still looked doubtful.

The book does not live up to its title. There are hardly a couple of pages on he Upanishad. One would expect all the 18 verses of the Upanishad covered. It is full of criticism of others on subjects not covered by the Upanishad and fanning his Osho's thoughts unconnected to the Upanishad.

Not worth buying if you want to study the Isha upanishad. An eye opener, a direction to the moon, most logical book that opens eyes of the blinder. It does introduce you into the world of isha upanishad but with the perspective that the author had.

Prayer Simply Happens

They have dropped the idea of the mundane and the sacred. THAT represents the absolute, the ultimate, the further shore; this represents the immediate, the herenow, this shore. Both are one because: that is the whole, this is the whole - there is no distinction at all. The ordinary religions live on condemning this world; by condemning this world they praise the other world. The Upanishads have a totally different approach: they praise this world with all its beauty, splendor; through praising this world they praise the other world. This approach is life-affirmative.


I Am That: Discourses on the Isha Upanishad

This Upanishad we are entering today is the smallest, it can be written on a postcard, and yet it is the greatest document in existence. There is no document of such luminosity, of such profoundness anywhere in the whole history of humanity. The name of the Upanishad is the Isa Upanishad. The world of the Upanishads is very close to my approach. In fact, what I am doing here is giving a rebirth to the spirit of the Upanishads. It has disappeared even from India, and it has not been on the scene for at least three thousand years. There is a gap of three thousand years, and in these three thousand years India has destroyed its own achievement.
