    One thought on “Joy: The Happiness That Comes from Within”

    1. I’ve always enjoyed every single page of this marvelous book. In the past couple of days I needed some uplifting reading after returning from a trip where I was struck by the legions of pain-racked faces I encountered on city streets. Here are several Osho quotes linked with comments on what I’ve found true in my own life: “You are being taught everything, but you are not being taught to be yourself. This is the ugliest form of society possible, because it makes everybody miserable.” --- [...]

    2. Well if there was 3.7 I would give it that are it's really fun to read and has one of the most beautiful pieces of wisdom ever seen ,,, the problem is it tend to be repetitive and I don't agree with some ideas But this being said o did enjoy it much :)

    3. the day i started this book , it was my rebirth literally . this book made be free from all the intoxication and conditioning induced upon me by the society (parents, teachers,friends). every verse of the book was a celebration, which makes you feel elated . it reveals the secret to real happiness which makes you laugh at your life ,and the english is so simple, soothing. his books contain a special touch which fills your life with nectar. "osho the heroin of literature"

    4. I love this kind of stuff, I read this while going thru a difficult time and while it didn't immediately sink in, it did help shape the path so to speak.

    5. transcendental. life-changing. moving. you look into yourself, start questioning - which is the goal of this book, to make you think and look deeper into your inner self. look for the truth and it will be found.

    6. Osho is never just a good read, its a great experience. It makes you do crazy things that a sane man would consider as sheer madness. I took almost six months to finish this comparatively short read and my life during the time was almost always guided by his philosophy of celebrating beauty and freedom. After all the shit that accumulate in my mind from the mortals, I call it a day and spent the evenings at the beautiful beaches and backwaters of Kerala taking refuge at the words of this crazy o [...]

    7. His teachings are so true. That is why people hate him. That is what people hate. People hate the truth. This is gonna be the most memorable read of mine. The examples are the best. The english so easy. Awesome book. A must read.

    8. "Đồng thanh tương ứng, đồng khí tương cầu" Khi đọc những trang đầu tiên của cuốn sách, đó là câu xuất hiện trong tâm trí tôi. Tôi muốn ôm trọn bộ sách của Osho để đọc. Thật hợp với tâm ý. Con người ai cũng có nỗi khổ riêng. Người ta muốn có niềm vui, muốn có hạnh phúc nhưng người ta không chịu rời bỏ nỗi khổ của mình. Đã vậy đôi khi người ta còn tranh nhau cái ngôi nhất trong [...]

    9. thực chất thì t không hiểu hết được bằng ấy suy nghĩ của Osho. Nhưng đây là cuốn đầu tiên của thể loại này mà tôi cố gắng đi đến trang cuối cùng.Đọc Thích Nhất Hạnh hay Osho, thường thì có 2 trạng thái: nhẹ bẫng hoặc rất căng thẳng. Mà có thể là cả 22.Nếu đọc lướt, mọi thứ đều nhẹ nhàng: về quá khứ, hiện tại, tương lai; về hạnh phúc và sống cho lúc này; về cô độc và [...]

    10. Osho's writing is like little drops of heaven or something from the beyond. He brings a very radical form of intelligence and thinking to us unlike what you would find from a 'normal' writer. His 'truths' are so true they are sometimes scary but always a breath of fresh air. No intellectual mumbo jumbo, no philosophical tricks, it isn't 'educated' in the academic sense just a refined wisdom that reveals layers of beautiful insight. No wonder he scared a lot of people!!

    11. Cuốn này hình như có mấy bản dịch tiếng Việt. Bản dịch mình đọc (của Minh Đức) hơi bị tệ, dịch giả có kiến thức khá kém về tôn giáo và nhiều chỗ không biết dịch như thế nào (như cô đơn vs. cô độ), vừa đọc vừa phải đoán xem từ tiếng Anh là gì (như từ suy ngẫm, hình như đúng ra phải là meditation- thiền định).Nhưng Osho thì đúng là brilliant, thông minh, hài hước và provocative.

    12. This book taught me a lot. Importantly, it taught me how to be happy from inside how not to depend on things or even others in order to be happy. Once I finished reading the book, I created this simple book trailer to encourage people to read it hope it does ;)youtube/watch?v=OxfTqW

    13. No word can define the enormous teachings and truth to this book's message. Osho truly is radical and I love it. He doesnt advocate a specific religion or organization, he doesnt put anything in a box. He wishes everyone to be himself. Joy, as a way of living.

    14. I enjoyed this book so much, I could read Osho everyday and not get bored by his beautiful craziness :) 4.5*

    15. Đọc lần đầu năm 2013, lúc mới sinh Bối Bối được mấy tháng, lúc đó thấy nhiều cái hay, nhiều cái mới, nhiều cái thấy hơi quen quen ở đâu đó, vì cùng trích dẫn những Tư tưởng của Phật. Đọc lại lần nữa, tháng 4 năm 2016, có những điều mình đang thực hành hàng ngày, có những điều chưa làm được Mình thì không đặc biệt tín ngưỡng một tôn [...]

    16. Not aldığım birkaç kısmı:"Bunu hiç gözlemledin mi? Eğer ıstırabın hakkında insanlarla konuşursan sana sempati duyarlar. Herkes acı çeken insana sempati duyar. Şimdi şayet insanlardan sempati edinmek hoşuna gidiyorsa ıstırabını bırakamazsın; budur senin çıkarın.""Yalnızlık negatif ruh hallerinden birisidir. Sözlüklerin söylediğinin zıddına tek başına olmak ise pozitiftir. Sözlüklerde yalnızlık ve tek başınalık aynı anlama gelir; hayatta ise değildir. [...]

    17. Joy was suggested to me a couple of years ago, I read it then but somehow forgot how strong a message this book carries. I just re-read Joy and I am surprised at how much Osho draws from all sources and is able to bring a new message that captures so much. Happiness, Joy, Bliss are analyzed in the context of today’s society in a powerful but light and very funny way. After reading the book I felt Joy at the possibilities within and many of the feelings became familiar from the first reading; I [...]

    18. I try to read books about happiness because I have depression and I am looking for comfort and advice. For a book called Joy this book was not.There were some good insights in it which is why I've given 2* to it and not 1, but I struggled to force myself through it. Early on, page 13, I found one of the anecdotes kind of racist and after that I googled Osho and found that he had some pretty controversial opinions on homosexuality and Jews. I think this was in my mind as I read the book and I was [...]

    19. I read this in India during a 24 hour scam ordeal when I was feeling anything but happiness and everything felt sinister. I read everything with the perspective of what I was going through and it tainted things a lot. But I like the message. My favorite passage is where he says you should do what you are meant to do. If you had planned to be a painter then opportunity will knock but it will look for you where you would have been had you been a painter. It has no way of knowing you decided to be [...]

    20. First time to read an Osho's book and I couldn't agree more with a guideline of how to read his books I came across somewhere: Take what we like, ponder what we don't understand and trash the rest. I think it's important for me to keep my mind awake while reading his message, because not everything he says is practically true for me, but it all sounds incredibly convincing. Got some few favorite parts in the book anyway, he helped me make clear about some ideas I had already had in my mind. He's [...]

    21. القراءة لأوشو هي دائماً مغامرة شيقة وممتعةفهو يأخذك في رحلة لنفسك لتواجه كثيراً من الأمور مستعيناً ببعض النصائح التي يعطيهايدخل لتلك الأعماق التي قلما يتجرأ كثيرون للدخول فيهايناقش أوشو في هذا الكتاب البهجة وكيف نفهمها ونصل لهاتلك البهجة التي لا يقابلها حزنتلك البهجة الت [...]

    22. A book filled with great ideas and wonderful ways to look upon life, destiny, happiness and joy. The only downside: the same idea is repeated too many times for my personal taste, but many would find that appealing as its purpose is to make sure you understand them, their importance and try to apply them in everyday life.All in all. will surely worth your time.

    23. You really can't go wrong with these Osho books if you're in the need for a spiritual colonic! This one mostly deals with how to dispel the notion of attaining happiness, and how one should instead focus on finding the joy within (as corny as that may sound, it makes sense in the book). Great stuff.

    24. Dla początkującychNa rynku polskim "Radość" wydana przez Nowy Horyzont. Pisana w stylu typowo amerykańskim, dla mnie trudnym do zniesienia (dlatego odjęłam jedną gwiazdkę). Jednak warto wytrzymać i skupić sie na przekazie - to pewnie jedno z najlepszych wprowadzeń do medytacji, jakie miałam w ręku.

    26. Yet, another good read. If you understand the difference between pleasure, happiness, and joy, there is no need to read the book. If you do not know what is the opposite of joy, or how pain and pleasure are connected, then, please, read the book.

    27. Este libro marcó mi vida de formas que no creí que un libro podía. Está lleno de verdades, de lecciones que te cambian la perspectiva y el mundo después de que lo lees. Hay una Graciela diferente después de este libro.

    28. not as easy to read as may have hoped.A little deeper than I may have thought.ButA perspective on state of mind, I admire and will endeavor to practice to some degree

    29. Cũng tạm, có ích cho những tâm hồn khô cằn cảm nhận kém, Osho quả thực có tài phân tích cái đẹp và cảm nhận một cách rất thơ. Nhưng giá trị lý luận thì ko nên học tập thì tốt hơn. Rũ bỏ ko bám chấp theo quan điểm của Osho thực ra lại đang rơi vào một định kiến chấp trước khác mà thôi.

    30. It changed me, ever since I've been more at ease, more balanced.Enjoying life and myself so much more. Everything in this book you allready know but reading it, somehow made it more tangible.

    31. Yes absolutely yes! Joy is within you. This work will help you to find out great secret of life within yourself. If you could find Osho's discourse on this topicyou would be more influenced.

    32. osho truly resonates with you. I am not a cult follower of osho but some of his philosophies go deep into my mind. everybody should read this book.

    33. One of the best I have read by Osho. This particularly helpful if one has experienced meditation like 10 days Vipassana and meditating.

    34. I read this in some batch. I sip it a little by little, even until the end. My biggest take: happiness is about freedom.

    35. Up in your face modern day philosophy you can use to see it all that much clearer. A must for a briefcase or a purse as a go-to.

    36. Despite Osho writes about joy, being free and meditate, he uses an agressive and heavy approach to write about it.
