given by Osho during a live discourse. A discourse is a
continuous flow of words. However, when the discourse is published
into book, one has
to use paragraphs to give it a proper readable structure. Therefore,

make it easy-to-read and internet-friendly. Please also
note that during the discourse, Osho also gave answer to various
queries from the listeners. All such questionnaires have not be
published here. Only meditation techniques have been provided.
If you want to read those questionnaires also, please read the
printed version of the book or read them online at the original

where almost all the books of Osho are available online for
reading. (Both English
techniques are being published for educational and informational
purpose only. Let me reiterate what I have already stated in home
page : use your own discretion while trying them.
Having said that, I sincerely hope that this series of discourses by
Osho on 'Vigyan Bhairav Tantra' will also give you a wonderful opportunity
to know Osho - the man who has been one of the greatest meditation
master this world has ever had.
