Examining the nature of compassion from a radically different perspective, Osho reveals that “passion” lies at the root of the word, and then proceeds to challenge assumptions about what compassion really is. Many so-called acts of compassion, he says, are tainted by a subtle sense of self-importance and desire for recognition. Others are based in the desire not really to help others but to force them to change.
Using stories from the lives of Jesus and Buddha and the world of Zen, Osho shows how the path to authentic compassion arises from within, beginning with a deep acceptance and love of oneself. Only then, says Osho, does compassion flower into a healing force, rooted in the unconditional acceptance of the other as he or she is.
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.£9.99 Add to basket
Have you ever seen a real fairy house? Not the ceramic ones you purchase, but a real fairy house made from natural elements? Well, now you can build your own miniature magical abode – the perfect addition to your garden. Revealed in FAIRY HOUSES for the first time are the step-by-step instructions for constructing exquisite fairy houses, explained by master fairy house architect, Sally Smith.
From her home on the edge of the Adirondacks, Smith has been creating one-of-a-kind fairy residencies for years. She uses natural artefacts such as butterfly wings for stained-glass windows, twigs for window frames, and birch bark for walls. Smith reveals her building secrets in FAIRY HOUSES. Readers begin their fairy house project by flipping through an inspiration gallery, deciding what kind of house they wish to create and considering where in nature they’ll put it. From there, readers learn about building materials (found and natural), on-site fairy house construction, how to light a fairy house and how to incorporate stonework into the design. All of Smith’s secret tips and techniques are then showcased in a series of step-by-step photos, making fairy house creation easy. The ones featured in FAIRY HOUSES were designed especially for this book and are meant for longer-lasting installations.
With this book, fairy houses move beyond “cute” and into beautiful nature-woven works of art. When you’re through, you’ll find yourself in an enchanted land where a Lord of the Rings-esque mood is magically evoked.
