The article entitled 'A Study on the Osho's Concepts of Human Freedom', is of three objectives: 1) to explore the concept of human freedom in general, 2) to examine Osho's concept of human freedom and 3) to analyze the Osho's concept of the fundamental freedom of life.
According to the general concept of human freedom, it refers to the condition or right to be able to do or believe what we desire without coercion or with any restrictions. Since freedom and responsibility are inevitable like two side of coin. It is comparable to two sides of the same coin. The concept of human freedom is indispensable to the traditional principles of Western and Eastern philosophy. Just as this idea represents the principle of human freedom, the primary purpose of this thesis is to study and analyze the concept of human freedom in relation to the system of the both philosophical tradition.
Regarding Osho's concept of human freedom, there are three types of Osho's excellent idea of human freedom viz. 1) Freedom from the past, 2) freedom for the future, and 3) just freedom (freedom in itself). The concept of freedom from the past represents a reaction from the past constraints. While freedom is liberated to fulfill future indefinite conditions. The first two concepts of freedom unite to believe in the fundamental values of existential ideals as easily understood as those between the West and the East. The third concept of freedom refers to the only freedom, and it is the same concept called "freedom." The concept of "Freedom to be" was the philosophical view of Jean-Paul Sartre and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. On the other hand, the first and second ideas of freedom can definitely be understood from the past of freedom and the future of freedom. However, the third idea is considered the absolute freedom of today.
