The First Principle
Talks on Zen
by Osho, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
1st Edition 1979
*** Spiritual Book Gift with this order ***
Osho introduces these discourses on Zen stories by explaining what the first principle is: that which cannot be said. But it can be shown and experienced as Osho demonstrates in talking on the often bizarre, always maddeningly simple anecdotes about interchanges between Zen masters and their disciples. He also talks on intellect and reason in the seeker's life, spiritual greed and the real meaning of the Zen dictum to "kill" one's master. Somehow Osho takes the enigmatic quality of Zen and shows us its pragmatic truth, without robbing it of its inherent magic, charm or humor.
