Only once within the history of human consciousness, says Osho, has a thing like Zen come into being. In Zen: Its History and Teachings, the noted mystic explains that Zen has no rituals, no chanting, no mantras, no scriptures – only short, evocative parables and teachings that make it ideal for the brand new man. The use of his characteristic humorous, encouraging style, Osho guides throughout the origins and development of this seminal spiritual tradition that may be neither religion nor dogma nor creed. He provides a context for individuals who have now not been born into the Zen tradition, introducing them to its timeless technique to existence, arguing that the one preparation for fully experiencing Zen’s power is meditative awareness and presents simple techniques to reach this awareness.
