Summary

Sufism - a Matter of the Heart:

Sufism, also called “Islamic Mysticism” is a belief and practice in which Muslims seek to find the truth of divine love and knowledge through direct personal experience of God. Osho has spoken in a number of series on this beautiful tradition - which he compares with other spiritual and religious traditions - elaborating the underlying essence to an international audience. Osho brings the listener in contact with Sufism through his experiential sharing.

"I am not really talking on Sufism. I will be talking Sufism. If you are ready, if you are ready to go into this adventure, then you will attain to a taste of it. It is something that will start happening in your heart. It is something like a bud opening. You will start feeling a certain sensation in the heart - as if something is becoming alert, awake there; as if the heart has been asleep for long and now? - the first glimmer of the morning - and there you will have the taste." (Osho)

Osho is a poet

A very misunderstood poet. The manner in which he explains complex ideas with the utmost simplicity blows me away. I have taken so much away from this book. The best audible token I have ever used.

A mixture of Osho and Sufism

Osho was talking about spirituality in general, and using Sufi stories and sayings to back him up. Not very Sufi dense if that’s what you’re looking for. Just regular old Osho with a Sufi flavour.

8 Sufi parables contained.

In my option this is one of the more admirable of the new releases. I prefer more OSHO talks on parables and sutras than Q&A with Sannyasins.

All odd numbered chapters (8 total) contain the Sufi stories and the remaining even numbered chapters contain Q&A. Well balanced audiobook.

Keep the OSHO audible books coming. Audible is more user friendly than the OSHO.com website’s media player.

If you enjoy this I’d recommend Philosophia Ultima and or The Beloved volumes 1& 2

My favorite remains The God Conspiracy.
