*** Spiritual Book Gift with this order ***
Osho brings a juiciness to the aridity of Patanjali's language, turning it into a fascinating garden of exploration. Patanjali says, "When the activity of the mind is under control..." Osho says, "The mind is a process...doesn't exist, only thoughts, thoughts moving so fast that you think and feel that something exists there in continuity. One thought comes, another thought comes another, and they go on and on. The gap between them is so small that you cannot see the gap between one thought and another. So two thoughts become joined, they become a continuity. Because of that continuity you think there is a mind." Osho brings a simple but intriguing view to these sutras about knowledge and reasoning, samadhi, samadhi with and without contemplation, subtle objects of meditation and subtle energies. He has the knack of removing the dust and tarnish of the passage of time to make these sutras irresistible and vital reading.
