||THE ZEN MANIFESTO
Freedom from Oneself
Publisher: Rebel Books
Subject: Experiencing Zen
Osho dismantles the Western Zen establishment with compassion, wit and urgency. In his responses to questions about D.T. Suzuki, Thomas Merton, Paul Reps, Alan Watts, and Nancy Wilson-Ross, he gives the reader a tangible experience of the limits of the intellect, and a chance to experience the breakthrough into consciousness, into no-mind, that exists beyond the limits of intellectual understanding.
“Zen’s tremendous job is to get you out of the prison of mind. It is not an intellectual philosophy; it is not a philosophy at all. Nor is it a religion, because it has no fictions and no lies, no consolations. It is a lion’s roar. And the greatest thing that Zen has brought into the world is freedom from oneself.”
