The Messiah Vol 2
Commentaries on Kahlil Gibran's "The Prophet"
by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
1st Edition 1987
*** Spiritual Book Gift with this order ***
Early in this century a Lebanese poet, Kahlil Gibran, produced a book that has become universally known and loved for its beauty and the timeless themes it addresses. But because Gibran was a poet, not a mystic, in The Prophet he could give us only a work of imagination, a glimpse into the dream that is the mystic's everyday reality. The Messiah, Osho's two-volume commentary on The Prophet, must find itself as a companion to Gibran's work in the hands of every lover of truth and beauty. In this volume Osho speaks on the themes that Gibran addresses through the fictional prophet, Almustafa: love, children, giving, work; eating and drinking, and clothes; joy and sorrow; houses and homes, buying and selling; crime and punishment.

Book Condition: Used, Acceptable: The book has obvious wear, but its integrity is intact. There are no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text. We are categorizing it as acceptable because one corner has marks of water and some waves as effect. As seen in pictures.
