Osho speaks in many of his talks on health as a more holistic understanding of the “BodyMindSpirit” complex. His depth of insights into what makes a healthy and whole human being plus the many meditation methods he has developed are a vital part of his overall vision and proposal to humanity. Although he never gave a series of talks specifically about health issues, he requested and titled this collection of selected material “From Medication to Meditation” which was subsequently compiled under the supervision of his personal physician. In the foreword, which is a talk by Osho given to the Medical Association in India, he paints his vision of a healthier and more whole future when he says “…every hospital will have a department of meditation. It should happen. Then we will be able to treat man as a whole. The body will be taken care of by the doctors, the mind by the psychologists, and the soul by meditation. “The day the hospitals accept man as a whole, as a totality, and then treat him as such, will be a day of rejoicing for mankind.” - Osho

To better understand how various world views are incorporated into clinical work, doctors must ask themselves—as these contributors have—a series of important questions: What insights about life and healing does your faith provide? How does your faith challenge or reinforce contemporary medicine? How do you assess and address spirituality in clinical practice? How do your own beliefs influence your interactions with patients?The Soul of Medicine encourages medical students and practitioners to recognize the spiritual dimensions of medicine, to consider how these dimensions inform their own education and practice, and to be compassionate about their patients’—and their own—religious beliefs.
