Zorba the Buddha

Book Reviews

Review of a new book containing a comprehensive compilation of Osho’s discourses on the New Man.

ZorbaOsho calls the New Man Zorba the Buddha; to Osho, the materialist (as the character in Nikos Kazantzakis’ book, Zorba the Greek) and the spiritualist (as Gautama Buddha) are inseparable.

Each discourse is given in response to questions asked by disciples and friends.

Embark on a fascinating journey into Osho’s vision of the New Man.


The new man I talk about, and the new humanity, will not be Eastern or Western. It will not believe in this world only or in that world only, it will believe in the totality of man. It will believe in the body of man, it will believe in the soul of man; it will believe in the material, it will believe in the spiritual. In fact the new humanity will think of spirituality and materiality as two aspects of one phenomenon. Then the world will be rich in both ways, within and without.”
