This inspiring book grants us profound insights into the truly universal nature of Jesus' original teachings. With compassion and humor, Osho-one of our century's leading mystics-presents us with a series of discourses on the Gospel of Thomas.
Each of Jesus' original sayings is the "seed" for a discourse for the modern seeker, encompassing all realms of human experience-philosophy, science, religion, birth, death, love, fear, anger and guilt. Taking Jesus' words out of their narrower Christian context, Osho blends their wisdom with that of other religious traditions.
The Mustard Seed will both inspire and sustain us on our own individual paths of inner transformation.

‘He quotes Jesus, Buddha and old Zen masters with stupendous memory, interpreting them with a freshness and directness as if they were speaking today, as if they wore jeans’.
Osho (1931-1990) is a contemporary mystic whose life and teachings have influenced millions of people of all ages, and from all walks of life. He has been described by the Sunday Times in 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.
He is also known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique "Active Meditations" are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is easier to experience the thought-free and relaxed state of meditation.
