A woman, according to Osho, is a mystery and trying to understand her is futile. In this book, based on his discourses, Osho talks about woman not in his capacity as a man, but as a consciousness, an awareness.
In order to find her true potential, he says, a woman should search within her own soul and rebel against any repression. Unless you have a rebellious soul, you are not alive in the true sense of the word.
Osho talks about various issues like motherhood, relationships, family and birth control, Questioning the concept of marriage, he says it is the ugliest institution invented by man as its aim is to monopolize a woman. He is equally critical of the institution of family which corrupts the human mind.
A woman, he says, should not imitate man: Rejoice in your feminine qualities, make a poetry out of them. The perfect state of being, according to Osho, is a synthesis between the head and the heart, with the hart remaining the master. The rare sensitivity of Osho's words will appeal to both men and women.

About the Author:
OSHO was born on 11 December 1931, and attained 'enlightenment' at the twenty-one, and went on to complete his academic studies. He spent several years teaching philosophy at the University of Jabalpur. By the late 1960, Osho had begun to develop his unique dynamic meditation techniques. He felt that modern man is so burdened with the archaic traditions of the past as well as the anxieties of modern-day living, that he must go through a deep cleansing process before he can hope to discover the thought-less relaxed state of meditation.
In early 1970s, the West first began to hear of Osho. By 1974, a commune had been established around him in Pune, and the trickle of visitors from the West soon became a flood. Osho left his body on 19 January 1990. His talks have been published in more than six hundred volumes, and translated into over thirty languages.
