“The Book of Secrets: 112 Meditations to Discover the Mystery Within” is indeed a treasure trove of spiritual wisdom and practical techniques for transformation, masterfully interpreted by Osho. Osho’s exposition of the 112 meditation techniques in Vigyan Bhairava Tantra provides a comprehensive toolkit for individuals aiming to experience a deeper level of consciousness and unity with existence.
The book isn’t just about understanding the philosophy, it’s more about realizing it within oneself. Each technique is meant to guide us towards an experiential reality, beyond the dualistic world our minds usually perceive. This isn’t a journey of learning new concepts, but one of unlearning, of rediscovering the inherent, undivided state of being.
As Osho elucidates these ancient techniques – some involving breath, others involving attention, sound, silence, and even everyday activities – readers are shown a myriad of paths to the same truth. Importantly, the book doesn’t demand a renunciation of the world. Instead, it shows how spiritual realization can be attained amidst our day-to-day life.
The dialogue-based structure of the book, featuring Osho’s responses to seekers’ questions after each chapter, fosters a profound, intimate connection with readers. It provides clarity, context, and guidance, helping to dispel doubts and deepen understanding.
While it’s an extensive read spanning more than 1000 pages, every page is filled with insights and wisdom that hold the potential to transform one’s life. The book may seem overwhelming, but its value becomes apparent when approached with an open mind and heart, willing to explore the depths of one’s own consciousness.
This book is certainly recommended for Osho followers, and also for anyone who is a genuine seeker on the path of self-realization. Its teachings transcend religious boundaries and are applicable to anyone, regardless of their spiritual background. It’s a beautiful reminder that the divine isn’t something to be searched for in the outside world, but something to be discovered within.
