The Art of Dying
Talks on Hasidism
The hardcover Rebel edition is out of print. We currently have only one used copy of the 1978 first edition. It has some underlining in the first 30 pages.
In five of the ten discourses in this book, Osho speaks on classic Hasidic stories compiled by the Jewish philosopher, Martin Buber - a great tradition of laughing saints and wonderful stories. On five alternate days he answers questions put by his disciples.
Death and life are two polarities of the same energy, of the same phenomenon – the tide and ebb, the day and the night, the summer and the winter. They are not separate and not opposites, not contraries; they are complementaries.
Death is not the end of life; in fact, it is a completion of one life, the crescendo of one life, the climax, the finale.
And once you know your life and its process, then you understand what death is. -Osho
