Jokes apart, but if anyone can understand a woman completely, it is the man himself. And this is very evident from the Osho’s “The book of a woman”. This is the first time in history some man has so beautifully understood and explained a woman.
“The woman can be of immense help in creating an organic society. She is different from man, but not unequal. She is as equal to a man as any other man. She has talents of her own. For her, it is not enough to earn money, it is not enough to be successful in world; more necessary is a beautiful home, and a woman has the capacity to change any house into home”.
The book touches the female consciousness on different levels like marriage, love, motherhood, creativity, the body, the mind, meditation, wholesome et. al. Osho believes that by imitating a man, she is just becoming a second-rate man and losing the sensitivity, softness and grace of a woman.
About love and lovers , the book reveals that a great lover is always ready to love and each heart is a valley where the love resounds like an echo. On motherhood, it s described as a great responsibility and a great art; which needs to be learnt. Osho requests all mothers to be joyous, sing, listen to music and meditate. Be very soft and don’t do anything hectic. Just go slowly, because a guest is arriving, and they have the responsibility to welcome him/her cheerfully, energetically and carefully too.
A woman, says the book, thinks with heart, which is soft, full of love, imaginative, emotive and sentimental. But a man thinks from mind, which is logical, argumentative and infertile. The direction of head and heart are diagrammatically opposite. That is why when a man is arguing with his wife, it is impossible to argue, talk and reach a fair conclusion, because man functions through head and man from heart. The solution is in meditation. As your meditation becomes deeper, your identification with heart and head starts falling and a third force of consciousness come into existence. Consciousness can manage a conflict easily, because both the head and the heart belongs to it. The book talks about woman not in her capacity as a man, but as a consciousness, an awareness.
The exceptional sensitivity and simplicity of Oshos’s words will touch the heart of both men and women….. check it out.
