Underlying all meditation techniques, including martial arts-and in fact underlying all great athletic performances-is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that Osho calls awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives.

According to great masters like Lao Tzu or Buddha, most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers. Never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do.

At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness-or awakening, to use another-in extraordinary circumstances. On the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, time seems to stop and one is suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Or in moments that touch us deeply-welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, or being with someone at the moment of death.

Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centered, and free in every aspect of our lives. In this book, Osho teaches how to live life more attentively, mindfully, and meditatively, with love, caring and consciousness.

OSHO challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people-along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha-who have changed the destiny of India. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.


Awareness: Everyone has experienced moments of awakening when time seems to stop and you are suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centred and free in every aspect of our lives. In this book, Osho teaches how to live life more attentively, mindfully and meditatively, with love, caring and consciousness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Osho knows what he is talking about 9. April 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
The subject of awareness is the most trascendental, complex and profound in the field of spirituality. Awareness is the real direction of life evolutionary process on this planet. Today,only very few persons in the world can speak with authority about this subject. Osho is one of them. I do not know of others, except Krisnamurti and Gurdjieff in the past. I found Osho the most elocuent, clear and compassionate of all. Thanks to St. Martin Press for giving us this rare gem of practical insight.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Awareness To Transcend A Mundane Life 21. April 2004
Von Barbara Rose - Veröffentlicht auf
Osho writes with astounding accuracy and illumination where you will be brought awareness to wake up from a life filled with mundane existence, and move into the present moment in order to re-create the life you deserve.
He uses many wonderful examples from Buddhist teachings, and puts them all into plain English, in modern 20th century language. He quotes psychologists, and Enlightened Masters alike. This book is more for a person who is trying to figure out what their life is all about, and who feels trapped in a life that feels almost empty or meaningless.
Osho's writings about people in America, being "asleep" and un-awakened may offend some readers in the USA. My suggestion is to take the great wisdom Osho brings in this book that applies to you in your life so that you can move forward in a positive way, and to simply let the more opinionated views of people in the West roll off your back. This book does have some great wisdom that many could use, and at the same time, some people may feel slighted from his judgmental tone.
His book is worth reading; just don't let your ego get in the way so you can take in the worthwhile wisdom he genuinely gives.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sometimes helpful, sometimes false and annoying 12. November 2003
Von Truth Seeker "Stephanie" - Veröffentlicht auf
Osho has a very good logical sensibility and makes many wonderful and helpful points about developing awareness. Some of his points are simply those that have been repeated in many books on meditation and mindfulness, but others are helpful in their unique insight. I found his points on "Centering" and "Tension and Relaxation" to be very helpful, and enjoyed many of the thoughts scattered throughout the book, such as a beautiful passage on "rising in love" as opposed to "falling in love."
However, one of Osho's biggest character flaws was his sense of superiority, and the book's all-knowing and magnanimous tone can be grating, especially when Osho says things that are inaccurate and just plain false. Osho's knowledge about politics was fatally flawed; later in his life he expressed admiration for authoritarianism, even praising Hitler. A passage on how Russia and India would make more responsible decisions about nuclear weapons than America in this book is particularly absurd and calls to mind the man's very flawed political views.
Osho's constant harping about the East's superiority to the West is irritating as well, particularly because it adds no extra insight and really is not a necessary part of the text. Further, it contradicts Osho's encouragement for readers to learn to overcome the mind's need to evaluate and compare. Osho devalues the analytical and logical accomplishments of the West even as he utilizes such approaches throughout his book. "Witnessing" is not the cure to everything, as Osho's life so aptly demonstrated. Some of his authoritative pronouncements could be harmful to those who would not challenge Osho's stance on something like therapy, the process of which could actually help a person with problems of repression of past trauma move more toward a state of awareness.
Osho's knowledge of science is almost nonexistent, and yet he speaks of science with the same authoritative tone he uses in speaking of everything else. His inaccuracies on all of these topics would only be a minor irritation if he did not use inaccurate statements as the basis for many of his arguments about awareness. This book would have been much better if the editors had left out some of Osho's wildly false observations and edited out some of the parts where he repeats himself endlessly for pages. Osho was a flawed human being, but also had a deep knowledge of inner development. This book reflects that dichotomy.
I would not argue against reading or buying it, but would encourage readers to be aware as they read the book so that they can separate the wheat of Osho's insights about becoming more aware from the chaff of his flawed egotistical pronouncements, divisive statements, and inaccurate claims.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clarity in great abundance... 22. September 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
...that is typical of Osho. Awareness is the heart of all sincere effort, and nobody says it better. This book contains the elixir a confused, mind-addled world needs so very badly. Buy for yourself, and two for friends, and ask them to do the same.

4.0 von 5 Sternen a good book from Osho 1. August 2011
Von Juan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I like it. But it only tells you a little bit practicing principle or technique at the very end of the book. The book talks about more how important it is being aware than how to be aware.
