The Art of Dying
As everyone knows, death is something that happens to other people: strangers, foreigners or dogs. Not conceivably to oneself.
This book may make it conceivable to admit mortality. It may even make the prospect exciting, enticing - not to the point of jumping under a bus, but to the point of relaxing into acceptance of an inevitable. And life, thus unladen of dread, may seem more enjoyable.
Osho?s unique view of seeing death as a time for celebration - knowing how to live, we will know how to die - pervades his chosen stories of the laughing, earthy Hasidic mystics, as well as his responses to the sometimes hilarious questions asked of him during these talks.
