Explore the emotional sensations of the many facets of love and affection that bring people together with one of the twentieth century's greatest spiritual teachers.
One of the most important life events is falling in love, yet we never learn about it in school. Societies and religions force us into models and thought-forms that are often in opposition to an organic model of love, which is instead institutionalized by marriage, religious affiliations, and nationalism. This results in love that is, for most people, a painful challenge in one form or another throughout life.
In these modern days, where the focus shifts more and more to realizing one's individual potential, Osho's The Power of Love: What Does It Take for Love to Last a Lifetime? helps us to direct our search for love by widening our view--showing us that love has many manifestations and is not limited to the "other." One manifestation of love is meditation, a life-changing experience that allows the flowering of real love within oneself and toward others.
Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy 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. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
