Overview

"What is this ancient music? Osho says it is the soundless sound, the sound of existence itself and it is surrounding us all the time but we just cannot hear it. He tells us that listening is all that meditation is about - how to listen to that which is already there. With the help of five really great Zen stories and questions from disciples, Osho goes into careful detail on what meditation is. He helps us examine the mechanism of our mind and how to understand it, because without this understanding we may go on doing things which help the mind to function in its old patterns. And to hear the ancient music, mind has to be put aside. Osho describes creativity as the main quality that makes Zen superior to any other way of life. He talks about how the artist sees each leaf of a tree as different, unique, individual, and how for the poet each word has its own subtle music. Osho takes us into the world of Zen where we are encouraged, or rather inspired, to grow towards more sensitivity, to be more alive, more silent, so that we may hear it - that music - it is here. Shhh!" -- Ma Prem Shunyo

Editorial Reviews

M. P. Pandit
"A fascinating collection of talks on Zen stories. The stories themselves are profound, at times tangalizingly mystical, but the commentary upon them by Osho is stimulating in its originality. His deep perceptions into the psychology of man, his devastating wit and merciless exposure of the countless hypocrisies that do duty for social norms and traditions are captivating." -- World Union, India
