Whatever you may have thought or read up until now, these talks will take you further. They are not about enlightenment, rather words spoken by a man who has known enlightenment – and left it far behind. Through his responses to the questions of people from all walks of life, Osho explores the subject from the inside, revealing the inner workings of a mystic.
What does enlightenment mean? – spiritual awakening, discovering the truth about life? Or is it less defined, just a formless sense of something to work towards on a journey of personal exploration?
In this book one starts to have a glimpse that enlightenment is something achievable by anyone ready to take the jump here and now. And yet, while it is the peak of all beautiful, blissful experiences, it is still an experience. So what is beyond that, when one goes beyond individuality to the universal, dissolving one’s separation from existence…?
“Beyond enlightenment there is no experience at all, because the experiencer has disappeared. Enlightenment is not only the peak of experience, it is also the finest definition of your being. Beyond it, there is only nothingness.”

Excerpt from Beyond Enlightenment
Enlightenment is the goal of human beings. But those who are enlightened cannot remain static; they will have to move, they will have to change. And now they have only one thing to lose – themselves.
They have enjoyed everything. They have enjoyed the purity of individuality; now they have to enjoy the disappearing of individuality. They have seen the beauty of individuality; now they have to see the disappearance and its beauty, and the silence that follows, that abysmal serenity that follows.
