Not only is Osho not a guru, his whole approach is to demolish the "guru game."
His insight is that deep down we all tend to want someone to tell us what to do -- the "sheep and shepherd" approach. But rather than waiting for someone else to save us, waiting for some Mr. Fixit, like God, to put things right, each individual has to take total responsibility for his or her own life. And with total responsibility comes total freedom.
And about Osho? Perhaps an analogy will help.
Each individual is unique. Each of us has to walk our own journey and no one can do it for us. That journey is inwards and there we will meet no one. No one has gone on that particular, unique journey before, or will again. It is unknown, and may be dark -- and it is easy to get lost. Does it make sense to take a flashlight? Sure it does. But we have to hold on to it, it doesn't hold on to us. It can illuminate the path but it doesn't tell us which direction to take. That is for us to learn, for us to risk. That is the joy of living dangerously.
As Osho explains, "The pilgrimage itself is the goal," and that, "My effort is to leave you alone with meditation, with no mediator between you and existence."
Osho defies categorization. His thousands of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today.
Osho’s books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it, “So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you... I am talking also for the future generations.” Osho has been described by the Sunday Times in London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by American author Tom Robbins as “the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ.” Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people – along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha – who have changed the destiny of India. About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha” – capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha. Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho’s talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest potential of today’s (and tomorrow’s) science and technology.
Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique OSHO Active Meditations are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.
