An extraordinary book written under extraordinary circumstances. Osho, the enlightened master who has over six hundred books to his name, speaks not in his usual lecture hall to thousands of seekers but in an intimate and eccentric setting to only four disciples. He tells stories and gives poetic and profound descriptions of books that had helped him when nothing else was shinning in the darkness.

Osho talks about one hundred and sixty-eight books in al, from the great seers of the Far East and Indian mystics, to Nietzsche and Western philosophers and novelists. Here is a whole rainbow of the world's literary genius, woven together with wonderfully humorous personal comments and swings of the Zen stick from Osho to his note takers.


There is a funny story about this volume. Immediately following his first dental session on the Ranch in Oregon, Osho sent for his dental team. We sat on the floor at his feet as he outlined his vision of a book he would dictate from the dental chair.

Oho went on to say that " These books will be so that my people can know how a master speaks when he is with just two or three of his intimate disciples. At first I had no notion that there would be more than one book: Oslo was speaking, and I was noting it all down. After six sessions Osho announced "This is the end of the first series." Osho called the next series Om Mani Padme Hum -an ancient mantra. He spoke on this, the second series, for six sessions. Together they form the book, Notes of a Madman.

Then Osho said, " I have loved books my whole life. They helped me when nothing else was shining in the darkness. Remember, I never had a master .. Not ever, not in any of my lifetimes. Many masters wanted me to become their disciple but always I said I must follow my own way no matter how long it takes, no matter where it leads.

There are many books which have a taste of the truth, but nothing much. Some books, though, can be really helpful. Such books help people to hear the song of truth singing in their hearts. These are the books which are knocking now on the door, asking me to speak about them. I will give one book for every year of my life until now.
