This rich and refreshing book invites us to travel with the Buddha on a path of radical wisdom. In his inimitable style, Osho interprets the "Sutra of Forty-Two Chapters" - a scripture compiled by a Chinese emperor in the first century C.E. - using wonderful contemporary anecdotes to make profound points. As we laugh or shake our heads at the folly, the ineptitude or the goodness of the characters in the stories, Osho engages us at every level to let us experience the Buddha's teachings and take in their timeless truths. "No belief is required to travel with Buddha. You can come to him with all your skepticism - he accepts and welcomes you, and he says, 'Come with me.'" - Osho.

The inner world needs its own vocabulary, and Osho is a master of creating a language to describe experiences of the inner world that is simple, unpretentious and clear. 'The ABC of Enlightenment' is not just a dictionary but a book on life itself. It contains concise quotes by Osho on a large variety of topics. For those who are unfamiliar with him, this is an easy introduction to his way of life and also an entertaining reference book. From 'Absolute' to 'Zen' Osho is never at lack of profoundness and both traditional and contemporary issues are redefined and reinterpreted for a contemporary understanding.

I Believed in Me

His birth was normal, the mother, his mother, had no complications. They were not suffering the curse that everyone else was living. But this is how a beautiful child was born, a little prince, a little prince, but from evil.

A part of these stories are true. A common situation for some people, either by nature or by habit, is to criticize or judge others and, often, we don't realize that we make that person or their family feel bad. Sometimes we can even hurt them physically or mentally. Among the stories written here, one is true. One talks about a little girl who was criticized from birth, but who had the intelligence to turn criticism into positive energy; She didn ́t stop to listen to mediocre nonsense. Another stories talks about the perpetuation of prejudice or religious faith, without criticizing any religion or offending those who profess them.

When the Shoe Fits

And have you ever observed that every child is beautiful? ... In the beginning all the hundred were beautiful – so what happened to the other ninety-nine? ... When these laws were not passed, how did we manage to get born at all?

The powerful combination of the perennial wisdom of Tao and Osho's insightful and inspirational interpretation makes this a true gem of a book - which will appeal not only to Osho's numerous followers, but also to the increasing number of people who are interested in the wisdom of Tao. Although previously little known, this is one of Osho's classics. He brings his unique perception to the world of Tao, and offers his penetrating and illuminating comments on these original sutras. As always, his inspirational anecdotes and stories illustrate the points he makes - about the spiritual search, love, acceptance and true peace and happiness. With wonderfully irreverent humour, Osho sets out to pierce our disguises, shatter our illusions, cure our addictions and demonstrate the self-limiting and often tragic folly of taking ourselves too seriously.

In this, Esad Babačić's first book of poetry to appear in English, we have a very different and surprising voice emerging from Slovenia. The closest parallel is the poetry, as much as the attitude, of Charles Bukowski. It's the voice of the streets and it's a demotic voice, purged of the sense of the "beautiful." It could be described as jagged and rough, but done purposely to release poetry from well-worn traditional forms and style. his is a masterful voice, and one that should be heard and recognized outside of Slovenia, and here translated ingeniously by Andrej Pleterski.
