In this especially lighthearted series of talks Osho comments on the Zen master, Yoko, and explains why meditation is not just a daily discipline but a lifetime love-affair He also answers questions from seekers on a diverse range of both fundamental and humorous subjects which include self-acceptance, courage, the longing for the divine, chaos, sex, and spiritual awakening. "Zen is another name for meditation. The word zen comes from the Sanskrit root dhyan - it has traveled far. Dhyan means a state of absolute silence, of thoughtless silence, but full of awareness. Even the thought that "I am aware" is enough to distract you from your meditation. Even to know that "I am in meditation 'is enough to destroy it. A state of meditation is an innocent, silent state. You are blissfully unaware of your awareness. You are, but you are utterly relaxed."
