“To me a ebook isn’t just a ebook; it’s a love affair…

I’ve beloved studying from my very childhood. My very own private library consisted of 100 fifty thousand uncommon books of all of the religions, philosophies, poetry, literature. And I’ve learn all of them, however with no function; I loved it.”

The OSHO Library is maintained by Osho Worldwide Basis.

Except about 1O,OOO, which have been gathered on his request after he stopped studying, all of those books have been learn, signed and dated by Osho.

Osho’s private library is now housed in a constructing named “Lao Tzu Home” on the Osho Worldwide Meditation Resort in Pune, India. The library holds greater than 150,000 volumes, largely within the humanities, together with historical past, psychology, faith and philosophy. It additionally includes a fairly substantial assortment of the traditional literature of East and West, together with a powerful array of biographies, books on physics and earth sciences, and so on. The library has been created with aesthetic issues in thoughts, the item being to create a lightweight and ethereal feeling moderately than the “heavy” and
“severe” look of so many libraries. Books are sorted in response to measurement and colour, and positioned on the cabinets in an association that implies ocean waves. The impact is natural and pure, with no stable blocks of colour or measurement to seize the attention and weigh it down. Osho himself was an avid ebook collector and reader all through most of his life, and the library contains volumes that he has saved in pristine situation since his childhood. He preferred to underline his books, and to create an individualized portray on the entrance pages, usually together with his signature, instead of a printed ebook
plate. A part of his work was to provide every day extemporaneous talks, which he would generally punctuate with quotes and passages from books he had learn. The library was catalogued by hand for a few years, with cross-references that included not solely title, creator and subject material, however things like the duvet colour, variety of pages and trim measurement. In that approach, if Osho wished to see that “large ebook on Einstein’s idea of relativity with the blue cowl, ” the librarian might find the needle within the haystack with relative ease. In 1987, a three-year mission was initiated to computerize the cardboard catalog.
