In this reissue of the popular volume from the "Insights for a New Way of Living" series, Osho examines the nature of joy from a radically different perspective. With an artful mix of compassion and humor, Osho shows us that joy is the essence of life, that even unhappiness has its root in joy. Osho encourages us to accept joy by being grateful to be alive and for the challenges and opportunities in life, by finding the good in all that we have - rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness. By embracing joy, one comes closer to a true, peaceful, and balanced state."Joy: The Happiness that Comes from Within" now includes an original talk by Osho on DVD. This visual component enables the reader to experience the direct wisdom and humor of Osho straight from the source.

As a Guru, he was far from being a cave-dweller; instead this former Professor of Philosophy (University of Jabalpur,1958-66) was more of a modern rebel, and this may understandably disappoint some folks on their expectations of what a Guru should be. But his answer on the 93 Rolls-Royces and other fineries he had, was that he simply used what was available. He was a practical man indeed!
In reading this book, I was amazed to find page after page of 'bang on-target' penetrating insights, peppered with sharp observations of human nature and ocassionally punctuated with entertaining parables told with wry humour. Read this book if you want to know the difference between pleasure, happiness, joy and bliss.
Some brief excerpts from the book:-
'..asking for more is what our mind is - a constant asking for more. It makes no difference how much you have, the mind will go on asking for more.'
'..mind is a daydreaming faculty. Unless you go beyond the mind, you will continue to daydream. The mind cannot exist in the present. To be in the present is to be without mind.'
'..mind is a mechanism to create unhappiness. If you drop the mind, suddenly you become happy - for no reason at all.'
'..madmen and mystics have something similar..both are out of the mind. The madman has fallen below it, the mystic has gone beyond it.'
'..unless you start living in the present, you will not be able to forget and forgive the past. Awareness cannot be in the past and cannot be in the future. Awareness knows only the present.'
'..as you feel the bliss of being in the present, you will stop doing this stupid thing that everybody goes on doing. You will stop going into the past. You will not have to forget and forgive, it will simply disappear of its own accord.'
This book is filled with similar gems of wisdom and I strongly recommend this book if you wish to comprehend the elusive nature of happiness/joy. Notwithstanding that he was a controversial Guru when he was alive (1931-1990), the contents of this book will still take your understanding way beyond what the current crop of pop psychology books can offer on this subject.
And then, when you are ready for the next level of mental/spiritual evolution, these 2 books are must-haves:-
'Talks With Ramana Maharshi' by Robert Powell (ISBN: 1878019007)
'I Am That' by Nisargadatta Maharaj (ISBN: 0893860220)
Osho speaks in such clarity and ease that during my own inner stress/struggle, his book alone was the only one that I found myself glued to, underlining, feeling like the knots in my life and perception were unraveling all at once, immediately.
Joy is not something you can pursue. The more I pursued meditation, Buddhism, etc the harder I tried, the worse I felt. Joy and ease aren't things you can pursue directly. Perhaps what I have been looking for are the tools for letting go. It's something that everyone should have access to, right now, without years of training, rituals, practice, etc that is not practical for most people. Joy is what happens when you let go of the past and forget the future, and just bask in the pleasure of right here and now. When you learn to just take things easy, you let yourself feel love inside yourself and that love can build up into an ambition and clarity/focus to tackle even the most stressful situations in life.
Joy shouldn't take years of mind training, meditation, philosophical insight, years of mystical preliminaries and extensive mystical rituals. Kudos to those who have that time, but I have a family, a job, a home business, a big move, and lots of life changes going on right now, so I need instant relief. Maybe someday I'll have the time to focus on that, but now, as so much is up in the air, I need something simple, something relaxing, to give me that ease and joy. This book does that.
well! osho is the first to give me a peace of mind on these matters. if you just don't see the point to anything, maybe this book is for you.
Osho has no trouble taking on the Constitution on one page and Jesus on the next - ie there are no keep-off-the-grass issues here! The writing challenges us to drop our stuff - to get out of the box - to claim the joy that is our birthright. And he does it in a playful way!
Do not give this book to that person in your life who you think needs a little joy. Save it for someone who will really appreciate it - someone who doesn't take themself too seriously!
