Described as one of the 1,000 Makers of the 20th Century and the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ , Osho says of himself that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being characterized as Zorba the Buddha capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama Buddha. In this book, he explains how we can detach from Zorba, who fears death, and become Gautama, who tranquilly embraces it. Osho tells us that if we fear death, we miss one of the golden opportunities, the golden gate . Yet if we can graciously surrender to its embrace, death, with its sting, disappears. Packed with practical applications of his philosophy, ranging from understanding and dealing with our fears, techniques for managing pain, keys for acceptance and transformation, and insights for caretakers and the bereaved, this inspirational guide is a bolster for strength and calm in the face of one of the hardest of human initiations.
