Book Summary of The Book of Understanding : Creating Your Own Path to Freedom

The path to freedom is filled with questions and uncertainty. Is it possible to truly know who we are? Do our lives have a purpose, or are we just accidental? What are we meant to contribute? What are we meant to become, to create, and to share? In The Book of Understanding, Osho, one of the most provocative thinkers of our time, challenges us to understand our world and ourselves in a new and radical way. The first step toward understanding, he says, is to question and doubt all that we have been taught to believe.

All our lives we've been handed so-called truths by countless others—beliefs we learned to accept without reason. It is only in questioning our beliefs, assumptions, and prejudices that we can begin to uncover our own unique voice and heal the divisions within us and without.

Once we discover our authentic self, we can embrace all aspects of the human experience—from the earthy, pleasure-loving qualities that characterize Zorba the Greek to the watchful, silent qualities of Gautam the Buddha. We can become whole and live with integrity, able to respond with creativity and compassion to the religious, political, and cultural divides that currently plague our society.

In this groundbreaking work, Osho identifies, loosens, and ultimately helps to untie the knots of fear and misunderstanding that restrict us—leaving us free to discover and create our own individual path to freedom.

Doubt—because doubt is not a sin, it is the sign of your intelligence.

You are not responsible to any nation, to any church, to any God. You are responsible only for one thing, and that is self-knowledge. And the miracle is, if you can fulfill this responsibility, you will be able to fulfill many other responsibilities without any effort. The moment you come to your own being, a revolution happens in your vision. Your whole outlook about life goes through a radical change. You start feeling new responsibilities—not as something to be done, not as duty to be fulfilled, but as a joy to do. —OSHO

Derek December 07, 2010 review from Goodreads

Osho was never against material wealth, that's why he lived with luxuries for much of his life, including Rolls-Royces. Too many people would see him wearing a diamond watch, for example, and think they'd "exposed" him. Really, they exposed their own flawed understanding of his way of life and th...

I picked this book up at Barnes and Nobles a year or so ago just because it sound interesting. I had never heard anything about this "Osho" guy but the introduction to the book intrigued me, so I bought it.I have to say that it wasn't hard to see why this guy was considered a hero by some and a n...

Stephen January 09, 2011 review from Goodreads

It starts with a lot of comparative religion stuff comparing eastern and western philosophies. Then, it moves on to how we establish a consistent independent identity, how to stay true to yourself and how to stay consciously aware enough to experience every moment.
