Author: Osho (Rajneesh or Chandra Mohan Jain) Publish: 1980 Page: 328 pages Language: English Format EBook: PDF   Review: This unique book is a compilation of 365 intimate letters written by Osho [from 1962 to 1971] to his disciples and friends while he was traveling in India on subjects as diverse as solitude, love, meditation and receptivity; as well as our fruitless efforts to make our lives secure, the stupidity of the human mind, and the ability to laugh at oneself.   These letters have a rare and beautiful quality as Osho recalls incidents from his own life, tells stories and parables and reflects on the nature of truth and the journey of a seeker. Anyone drawn to truth will treasure this book – the perfect bedside companion, to be savored one cup at a time. It is an excellent introduction to the wisdom of this extraordinary man, and all will find encouragement and inspiration within its pages.

Author: F Anstey Publish: March 31, 2009 Page: 320 pages Language: English Format EBook: PDF Review: Satiric comedy from 1915 about a nouveau riche British family and their nanny who get whisked off to Maerchenland (‘the land of Fairy Tales’) one evening in a car drawn by storks. The matron of the family, a thorough snob, is crowned Queen of the country by mistake. She is quick to accept her new position and is determined to introduce British social niceties in her realm. And this really is the land of Fairy Tales, with gnomes, giants, a dragon, magic, a fairy godmother and more. Trouble quickly starts to brew as the royal couple and their son introduce things like capitalism and golf. When gradually a few people find out who should actually have been the new ruler, things get more and more complicated. A bit of romance is thrown into this mixture as well. You’ll have to listen to find out whether everyone lives happily ever after. In the preface and epilogue, the author won’t let his audience forget the troubled times in the real world, in the heat of World War I. (Summary by Anna Simon)
