Buddhahood In Buddhism, buddhahood Sanskrit buddhatva Pali buddhatta or buddhabh va Chinese is the condition or rank of a buddha awakened one. The goal of Mahayana s bodhisattva path is Samyaksambuddhahood, so that one may benefit all sentient beings by teaching them the path of cessation of dukkha Mahayana theory contrasts this with the goal of the Theravada path, where the Relics associated with Buddha The relics were later dug up by Ashoka, and used the relics said to have been divided into , portions and had stupas built over them throughout the region he rules Many of the remains were taken to other countries.

    1. A real thinking book, The Buddha Said can be tackled two ways. OK, infinite ways, but I'll recommend one or the other, based on your temperament or how you find the sailing. Yes, you could read it coast to coast, though a lot of it is "chewy." That is, I sometimes stopped to write stuff down because I liked it so much. I went back and reread certain paragraphs. In that sense, the book argued for a more leisurely, "side" read, while others were in progress -- maybe at certain, more introspective [...]

    2. 5 stars is not enoughere should be an infinite option in the rating.This is one of those rare books that introduces a fundamental change in the reader's consciousness. It can widen the reader's sensibilities so that you can look at familiar things as though you are seeing and understanding them for the first time.It presents to you ideas that will keep you thinking long after you have read the book, analysing them subsconsciously so that no matter what interpretation you take with you, it will w [...]

    3. This book changed my life. Once you read it, you automatically start re-reading, again. It is not meant to read swiftly, but rather to take in a chapter a day and let it sink in. And Osho's commentary are very comical and light-hearted. Makes you almost smile or laugh.

    4. I should have payed way more attention reading this, then maybe I would have received more insights. Something that promps me to read OSHO with a casual attitude is the overwhelming amount of text(amazingly derived from speach) by him. I remember somewhere in the book OSHO names the talks "The Discipline Of Transcendence" but still they name the work something else, so for this reason I discourage everyone from buying this one in particular.

    5. Could hardly get through the first 50 pages and then gave up. I understood why once I realized that Osho is that old Rajneesh rascal. I'm sticking with the Insight Meditation crowd for Buddhist texts.

    6. Brilliant with a capital 'B'!! I have been familiar with Osho's teachings and have read a few of his booksis one stands out in many ways. First, its clarity, simplicity and to the point discussion and finally Osho's humorways makes it a fun read.

    7. "If you have a cause to be happy you are already getting into unhappiness, because t cause will disappear." -Osho

    8. It may take me some time to finish, but I am not in a hurry. I like reflecting on each page. Full of inspiring, thought provoking concepts!

    9. Learned a ton reading this book; plus I got to share some of the funny stories in it with my father in law who was beginning to read English.

    10. I've really been enjoying this one. Love the way Osho modernized the teachings of Buddha. Highly recommend.

    11. I love Osho despite all the problems he had here in the states. He is good with explaining some of the esoteric teachings in a clear manner us dumb Americans can understand.

    12. Top 5 books I've ever readMarcel gave to me in AfricaRead it twice. Once in Africa, then started it again at the end of my trip and finished it in the states
