      The first book of many that I have read of Osho. (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh when I read it) An absolutely fantastic look into the real meanings of the words of Jesus. Only a Master such as Osho can bring light to the true meanings of many of the parables of the Master that was Jesus. I read this in the summer of 1982 and it changed my life. It took me 9 months to read the first time as Rajneesh completely dismantled my understanding of the world and my belief structure. I would literally shake whil [...]

      4th Book by osho after god conspiracy, krishna - the man and his philosophy and The book of woman Very nice, helps to get a lot of knowledge. Increases respect about Jesus. His teachings are told in the way of osho along with his stories and jokes and great philosophy. Though he has criticized jesus in many ways, here he has told his teachings Recommended to those having interest in jesus, religion and philosophy!!!

      Eye opening and enlightening. My first OSHO read And I can't tell you how many "aha" and "exactly" moments I had. How many notations I made laboriously in my Kobo. How much I wanted to commit all of these ideas and feelings to memory. Jesus, as the Ascended Master, the man he is truly. Not manipulated by church or politics. A message clear and untainted.

    • Sandrine says:

      Probably the best Osho book I've read to date. I'll always treasure it. Always.

    • Luis says:

      He brought a different point a of view in Jesus teachings. He put him as a enlightened person such as Buddha and never denied his existence or teachings.

      This book basically changed my life.

    • Gregory says:

      Outstanding, Joyfilled

    • Wendy says:

      Beautiful, divine journey into living outside the box

    • Lydia says:

      Great read, no matter what your religious affiliation. He has some great insights and formulas for good living. I did enjoy the controversial nature of the book, too. Lost writings, even hidden texts kept privatized by the Catholic Church in Rome. Very thought-provoking.

    • Brandon says:

      This book is a very well thought out meditation on some of the sayings from the gnostic Gospel of Thomas, one of the Nag Hammadi texts. I wouldn't say this is a Christian book, though. I don't know much about Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (later known as Osho), but this is basically Eastern philosophy/spirituality, not Christian per se. Of course, Rajneesh is of the mindset that all religions at their core are the same, once you dig through the surface stuff that gets laid over the basic spirituality, [...]

      I enjoyed reading this book and took a lot of its wisdom to heart. This is my first exposure to the Gnostic scriptures and I am very interested to learn more about them. Osho lays bare religious insights that are hard to swallow and he holds no punches with regards to his teachings about abandoning the ego and materialism in exchange for a new, more awakened self. At points, in my humble opinion, Osho does come across a bit like a rambling lunatic on a downtown corner and he is quite difficult t [...]

      Un libro extraordinario, revelador, paradójico y profundo que recorre las enseñanzas de Jesús desde un punto de vista místico. Es una interpretación profunda de los evangelios, espiritual y metafísica. Recorre muchos temas de vida, muerte, deseo, culpa, tiempo pasado y futuro, conciencia y muchos más. Reflexiones muy profundas y reveladoras sobre las parábolas de los evangelios, que nos transforman si las recibimos con una atención y disposición abierta. Para mí, el mejor de los libro [...]

    • Terry says:

      Subtitled "A living explanation of the sayings of Jesus from the Gospel According to Thomas," this book is based on the Dead Sea scrolls. Rajneesh starts each of his twenty discourses with a quote from this gospel. He does a very good job of explaining what Christ meant by his sayings, why he said it, and how the text can be used to build our lives today. Rajneesh maintains that Christ is the eternal seed within everyone's heart, and that increased awareness will bring out what Jesus and Buddha [...]

      I bow down to this book. I have no words. It is ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!! Every Catholic or Christian spiritual seeker should read this book. This is beyond what I’ve expected. Absolutely phenomenal! Osho has a unique way of imparting wisdom to the people of this generation. I wanted to say a million words but still, that wouldn’t be enough! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💓💓💓If you are in doubt in buying or reading this book, then let me convince you: DEFIN [...]

    • Dan Pfeiffer says:

      This is a challenging book in some passages because it asserts a non-Western/organized religion view of Jesus by way of discussing the meaning of 21 of His sayings. And while I do not agree entirely with some of the assertations I do enjoy any work that challenges orthodoxy. By providing a Hindu spiritualist viewpoint the author achieves a deeper philosophical and comforting understanding of the message.

    • Lou Carmichael says:

      Osho has a habit of throwing you into obstinate disagreement, shaking you up, spinning it around and leaving you contemplating the very opposite you thought he was saying in the first place. A complete mindbender of a read, a revelation of christ consciousness. My first Osho read, pulled out of the bottom of a black sack in a charity shop, what a jewel!

    • Divakar says:

      one of the best book I have ever readr me it took some time to understand the things that are conveyed in the bookIt was a truly a spiritual awakening experience.Osho gave a clear insight of Christ messagesVery good book

    • Terry Monk says:

      If you haven't read this, than you are missing out. Raised Catholic with only basic spiritual tools, I needed this leg up. I have since redecorated my spiritual tool box to reflect a more universal understanding, more Mystical, yes Mystical.

    • Dwende Jumalon says:

      I'm sure this is a book of spiritual substance needed in my 'journey'. i have read The Shadow of the Bamboo by the same author Bhagwan and it guided me along the way.This one's another provision,i hope, for my trip.

    • Heather says:

      This is a great book. Osho is a very palatable author. His words and insights are very easy to follow as if you are not reading but rather having a conversation with him.

    • Michael Sinai says:

      A must read, especially for Eastern religion/philosophy people who have been generally turned off by Christianity.

    • Nanda says:

      no words need to be spoken, just read and see yourself

    • Pamela Laurence says:

      Though this is based upon the teachings of Jesus, there are lessons for all - this is not a book on religion. There is a whole universe within.

    • Rodrigo Bacila says:

      No words can describe how deep is this book, a profund analyses of our souls and meenings! It comes to be almost dangerous!!!!

    • Frederico Brígida says:

      love books, loved the smell of this book.

    • Darya says:

      very very good book, i really recommend this specially to Christian People. The author also known as Osho.

    • Ronanrj says:

      Livro ótimo!

    • Amy says:

      Read this book 24 years ago. Thought I'd see how it's changed.

    • Dennis Johnson says:

      Definitive reading for allIf one thinks one knows anything about Jesus, this is the book to read.This could be the greatest book ever written on the subject.

    • Brenda says:

      I read this when I was a young teen (no memory of how I got it or why) and have been thinking about it a lot lately. Time to read it again I suppose.
