Two masters and their books

Swami Vivekananda and Osho are two intellectual greats who I have always admired. Whilst in college, one of the earliest salaries from my job was spent on the 12 volumes of the collected works of Swami Vivekananda. To this day, they remain a source of inspiration and guidance whenever I feel lost.

Osho's works, on the other hand, are a source of great joy. The refreshingly different look at the world and the concepts that we have been fed from a "conventional" point of view always make me smile when I read his works. It is not only the sense of challenging the accepted truth but the very logical arguments that he presents to state his case which are a joy to read.

For those who would like to read more:

The complete works of Swami Vivekananda can be found here; and

Quite a few of Osho's ebooks are available here for free download.

You're welcome. :)

Osho is fascinating as he uses his razor sharp wit and intelligence to challenge norms, isn't he?

Certainly!! He puts an argument in such a way, you will get convinced 90% of the time.
