'My vision of the new man is of a rebel, of a man who is in search of his original self, of his original face. A man who is ready to drop all masks, all pretensions, all hypocrisies, and show to the world what he, in reality, is.'

Osho perceives man as becoming increasingly alienated from his inner self, gradually losing his natural innocence and creativity in the mindless quest for worldly power and success. To appear strong, the average man suppresses his innate qualities of love and compassion, thus widening the chasm within.

For Osho, the ideal man is Zorba, the Buddha-a perfect blend of matter and soul. Inherently rebellious, this `New Man' experiences no division between the outer and the inner self. And, because he lives naturally and consciously without any guilt or conflict, he can claim the whole world as his own.
