Discover your ability to be brave in times of adversity with Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously --from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century.

Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird's-eye view of the whole terrain--where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to call on your inner strength to confront them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learnto enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Having courage is more than just heroic acts in exceptional circumstances. It's a necessity to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears--in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here.

Courage also features meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people cope with their fears.

Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people--along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha--who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
