Book Description

April 1 2010
Written more than 25 centuries ago, the Diamond Sutra is the first text to record the Buddha's own teachings, and it remains one of the most popular.One day, after the Buddha finishes his daily walk to collect alms, a senior monk steps forth to ask how he can best help humanity. Buddha responds, and thus begins a dialogue regarding the nature of perception. Renowned spiritual teacher Osho offers his unique interpretation of the Buddha's words, writing in an easy, humorous, and conversational style that makes even the most complex ideas understandable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A manual of ancient Buddhist wisdom Sept. 5 2012
By Dr. H. A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Diamond Sutra by Osho, Watkins Publishing, London, 2010, 256 ff.

The Diamond Sutra is the earliest book to which a printing date can be assigned - 868 CE. It is a sacred scripture of Mahayana Hinduism and Buddhism and it was originally written down in Sanskrit. Like other sutras, it is a collection of mystical and spiritual aphorisms intended as subjects for meditation and thence guidance towards enlightened existence. Osho was the name taken by a 20th century Indian mystical philosopher who lectured on Buddhism in both the East and West.

This book was not written by Osho but represents transcriptions of his lectures and videos - rather like the Gospels in relation to Jesus, without the videos of course! It isn't an easy book to read because the language in which it is expressed has a different syntax. But if you read it in a relaxed and contemplative frame of mind, imagining that you are listening to the words of an Indian sage, you will find there is wisdom on every page. If you prefer to read the text in everyday English there is a good translation by Alex Johnson that you can dip into on-line.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate truth.. the Diamond Sutra Sept. 5 2012
By Hansderma, Inc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This Sutra is the Most clear and truthful Sutra throughout Buddhist teachings. One monk mentioned that this sutra is not just limited to one religion but also it shows the core essence of all religions throughout the world. I would have liked it more if Osho version diamond sutra had the original writing in the some parts of the book from beginning to the end at once. Search on youtube "Diamond Sutra 101 - Part 1". There's an America born Korean buddhist monk and his name is Hyun Gak (birth name: Paul Muenzen). He explains it really in a very simple and easy way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware the title, this isn't the Diamond Sutra Feb. 9 2013
By Bobaboo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Despite the title, this book really consists of meditations on the Diamond Sutra by Osho,
a controversial 20th century Indian guru. Because words have such power, you may want to
do a bit of research first before you yield your understanding to this person Osho.
The words of the Diamond Sutra seem to be printed in italics and it may or may not be
possible to read just that by skipping from italic section to italic section in the text.
I have not figured it out yet. This is not an absolute contraindication to reading this
version, as no doubt with any ancient sacred text you will want a commentary to go with it.
But this particular "commentary" contains some frightening cult-like advice like
answering someone's question "Is it really none of my business what happens to other people?"
with "Now I cannot choose [you] for work, because [you] have [your] own idea about what is
right and what is wrong. Laxmi has no idea. She simply listens and does. Whatsoever is said,
she does." Osho goes on to stress, in his commune, you do it his way and you don't get a
vote and you should simply leave if you don't like it. Unwavering adherence to a contemporary
charismatic authority figure may or may not be the lesson you want to derive from study
of Gautama Buddha's ancient sutra. I just don't want other people to be fooled like I was
into thinking you are getting merely the fruits of contemporary scholarship together with the
text of an important sutra.
