The Book of Secrets : 112 Meditations to Discover the Mystery Within
"The Book of Secrets" invites us to experience and experiment with everyday life through the awareness of our senses. Osho discusses 112 individual meditation techniques drawn from ancient texts - meditations that focus on consciousness of the present moment. Osho describes each technique in detail and explains how to discover those best suited to each of us and how to integrate them into our daily lives. The new edition of "The Book of Secrets" includes: a DVD with original Osho talk and introduction to meditation; meditation and discussion texts revised and reworked for clarity; elegant new interior design; new introduction; new easy-to-read trim size. In "The Book of Secrets", the secrets of the science of the "Vigyan Bhairav Tantra" texts become available to contemporary audience. Confined to small, hidden mystery schools for centuries and often misunderstood today, tantra is not just a method of enhancing sexual experience, but a complete science of self-realization based on the cumulative wisdom of centuries of exploration into the meaning of life and consciousness.Tantra - the very word means technique - is a set of powerful transformative tools that can be used to bring new meaning and joy to every aspect of our daily live.

These techniques will not mention any religious ritual. No temple is needed, you are quite enough of a temple yourself. You are the lab; the whole experiment is to go on within you. This is not religion, this is science. No belief is needed. Only a daringness to experiment is enough; courage to experiment is enough.These 112 methods are for the whole of humanity-for all the ages that have passed, and for all the ages that have yet to come. I will go on describing each method from as many angles as possible. If you feel any affinity with it, play with it for three days. If you feel that it fits, that something clicks in you, continue it for three months.Life is a miracle. If you have not known its mystery, that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it. "Osho"
Osho, the philosopher and spiritual leader who rose to prominence in the sixties and seventies, continued teaching and guiding devoted followers up until his death in 1990. Many of Osho's techniques have been preserved by the Osho Foundation, which continues to practice and spread Osho's teachings.
