4. Manuscripts

The manuscripts are written in Hindi by Osho when he was living in Jabalpur in the 1960s. They are unique, as no writings from his hand are preserved with the exception of his personal letters. The manuscripts have been donated by Acharya Rajneesh to his former secretary Arvind Kumar Jain, Jabalpur. They are from 1966 to 1968 (no. 22.E: April 1969) when Osho finally ended preparing written drafts for his lectures and articles. The manuscripts were all later typewritten by his secretary and prepared for printing.

Origin of the paper is Orient Paper Mill, Amlay, India. It is ‘Fully Scape Size Paper’, in the dimensions 13 by 9 inches (32,5 x 20 cm; English folio). He was writing with his Parker pen in various colours of ink (also Parker): Royal blue, blue, black and green and most rarely in red ink (no.14). His preferences were Royal blue and black ink. He was at that time writing lefthanded, and with his special parallel fingerholding of the pen. In manuscripts prepared for articles, English words are occasionally added in brackets.

7. Osho’s Life. An Anthology of Osho’s Life From His Own Books.

Excerpts included in digital autobiography edited by Osho World, Delhi.
Located at http://www.oshoworld.com/biography/index.asp

Osho’s Life on www is based on Osho. An ‘Autobiography’ Compilation. Manuscript version. Landscape proportions. Spiral bound. On cover: “Manuscript Version. This manuscript version of Osho. An Autobiography. Compilation is a photocopy of the print-out of the final edit, completed in Osho Commune International, Pune, India, 8th March 1999. Research/compilation/editor: Ma Yoga Bhakti. Research/Hindi translator/editor: Sw. Yoga Pratap Bharti. The original request for this research in 1994, came from Ma Deva Anando Osho’s medium, as coordinator, at that time, for English Publications, and Osho International Commune International, Pune.” (Osho Cyber Cafe & Research Library. 04.08.2001)

“Notes to help the reader
1. The extracts in this compilation are taken from Osho’s books. These books were not written by Osho, but are vervatim transcripts of his discourses; darshans (intimate talks with disciples), interviews with disciples, visitors, and journalists; letters written by Osho; and personal talks which Osho gave. The books are published over a period of thirty years, and many are translations from Hindi books.

2. Because of their diversity of origin, the style of consecutive extracts may vary.

3. Since Osho’s words are recorded only since the early 1960’s, the earlier part of his life is told in retrospect. After 1960, extracts are more immediate: what Osho says at the time of certain events; his teachings as he develops them; his guidance on meditation as it is given.

4. Osho tells thousands of stories about himself. The selection in this compilation is based on those stories which he most often repeats.

5. Osho’s stories were told, not just to entertain, but to illustrate a point, which is also included where possible.

6. Osho requested that his words not be edited, so there is some unavoidable repetition in extracts; especially where Osho talks in one discourse about several periods in his life.

7. Osho explains that he uses very simple everyday language that everyone can understand. And whereever he uses terminology which may be unfamillar, he explains it. A glossary is given for words which are not self-evident from the first context in which they appear.

8. Notes are given to help the reader. These are kept to a minimum and are of three kinds: Notes in the text introduce dates and events; footnotes at the bottom of page of the text; notes at the end of the books are additional information. These are mostly in the present tense, as Osho requested.

9. During his life, Osho was known by several names: Raja, as a child; then Rajneesh; Acharya Rajneesh in the 1960’s; Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh from 1971; from December 1988 there are four name changes; and from September 1989, he is known simply as ‘Osho’. He requested that his name be changed to Osho in all new editions of his books. In this compilation the name Osho is given throughout, except for specific public references to earlier names.” (Osho’s Life www)

Some letters printed in A Cup of Tea:

“My respects to you.
I received your letter,
I was waiting for it.
The trip to Rajnagar was blissful.

Religion robbed of the spirit of yoga
has become a matter of morality only,
thereby losing its soul.
Morality is negative.
Life cannot be based on negation,
negation cannot nourish life.

The emphasis has to be on attainment not on renunciation.
It is not a question of renouncing ignorance
but of attaining understanding,
it is this that has to be central.
Practise has to be positive
and this sadhana can happen through yoga.

In my talks with Acharya Tulsi, Muni Shri Nathamaljee and others
I have stressed this point.
Many letters have come from Rajnagar and Rajasthan
in this connection;
as you have said
it seems some fruitful work has been accomplished
by going there.
One thing is very clear:
people are eager for a spiritual life
and current forms of religion do not satisfy them.
If however the right religion is given to them
it can revolutionize human consciousness.

I think of you.
May God grant you peace.
My love and regards to all.”
(1963. No.11)

“Love.
It is good that you are forgetting the past
it will open up an althogether new dimension of life.
To live completely in the present is freedom.
The past does not exists apart from memory
and nor does the future apart from castles in the air.
What is, is always present,
and if you start living unreservedly in the present
you live in God.
Once you are free of past and future
the mind turns empty and peaceful,
its waves die down
and what is left is limitless, endless.
This is the ocean of truth-
and may your river reach it!

P.S. I shall probably go to Ahmedabad in January,
can you come with me?
It would be good if we travelled together for a few days.”
(1966. No. 37)

“Love.
I have got your letter.
I know well how your soul thirsts;
soon it can be quenched-
you are right at the brink of the lake;
you only have to open your eyes,
and i can see that the lids are about to lift.
I shall be with you then,
always with you,
so don’t worry.
Be patient and wait;
the seed takes its own time to break and bloom.

Give my regards to all.
More when we meet.”
(1968. No.50)

“Love.
I was happy to receive your letter.
The drop doesn’t have to become the ocean,
it already is the ocean,
it just has to know it.
What is,
however it is,
to know it as it is,
is truth,
And truth liberates.”
(1969. No.62)

In letters from early 1971 Osho is telling of his move to Bombay making and end of his traveling. The three following letters are translated and printed in Joshi 1982, p. 104.

To Shri Hiralal Ji Kothari, Udaypur:

“My Beloved,                                                                                                                                   1/16/71
Love!
My travels are now almost over. The promises which I made to others in some previous birth, I have kept. From now on I shall stay in one place. Those who want to come, will come. They always come. I have completed the broader scope of my work. Now I will be doing deeper work. I went and called from one town to another, now I wait for them. This is now the inner command. And I have never done anything different from the inner command, nor can I do it now.”

To Shri Omprakash Agrawal, Jullunder:

“My Beloved,                                                                                                                                   1/16/71
Love!
Until now, the well reached out to the thirsty [Bhagwan reached out to the seekers], but from now on, this may not be possible. Now the thirsty will have to come to the well. And perhaps this is also according to the law. Is it not? I have almost stopped traveling. The message has been delivered. Now the one who wants to find me will find me, and the one who does not want to find me, I have knocked at his door as well.”

To Shri Rajendra, Ludhiana:

“My Beloved,                                                                                                                                   2/16/71
Love!
I am ceasing external travels. But to those who truly call, I will open the doors of inner journey. No, no one will be kept out. I shall enter your heart, and I shall speak to you. And that which you could not understand through outer language, you will be able to follow through inner speech. I have said enough about the subtle through the gross. Now the subtle has to be conveyed through the subtle alone.”

The following two letters on sannyas are from Bombay written to Ageh Bharti and among those printed in his Beloved Osho (Bharti, p. 274):

My dear,
Love. There is no need to think.
There is no guaratee even of a moment.
Time is slipping by and death comes silently – without asking or telling.
And, sannyas, means spontaneous living. It is not bondage; it is rather freedom from all bondages.
Sannyas is not your decision too. That is deliverance from your own self. Sannyas is not a resolve. It is surrender.

Pranam from Rajneesh
22.01.1971

My dear,
Love. If you wish for sannyas get submerged.
Then, postponement is not proper.
When there is a call from the Divine, make a move.
Then , it is not desirable to stop.
BECAUSE OPPORTUNITY MAY NOT COME TO YOUR DOOR AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Praman from Rajneesh
23.01.1971

The following is a personal letter written to Kranti probably while Acharya Rajneesh was staying in Yogesh Bhavan, Napier Town, Jabalpur. Chinmaya dates the letter to as early as 1958-1962. He is using her pet name Mounu (moun means silent, receptive, one who is silent and having receptivity. The letter is reproduced on photo in 2.10 Letters and manuscripts, with its vertical letterhead in left margin: Acharya Rajneesh 115, Napier Town, Yogesh Bhawan, Jabalpur (M.P.). It has been translated into English for the first time in 2009 by Swami Satya Vedant (Vasant Joshi) and also by Swami Gyan Bhed whose deviations have been added. In the letter we can notice Osho’s move from longer sentences and paragraphs in his early days towards a more shorthand like and direct phrasing.
“[The translation] has been quite a challenge though because the photocopy is unclear at several places…I felt quite frustrated that at some places I was unable to do justice to this beautifully written letter; but at the same time, I was equally afraid of making a hazardous guess. I trust you will find the translation acceptable.” (Chinmaya. Interview. Bageshwar. 27.09.2007; Vasant Joshi. E-mail. 15.02.2009)

“Beloved Mounu,
Your letter. I am happy that you not only live but you also think about life. It is, in thinking regularly about oneself, that purification takes place. But there are very few who think and hence many people die just the same as they were born.

The most significant thing about knowing man’s life is that much of it contains conditioning given by the society. An individual is not just an individual; much of what he is has come from the society. And getting rid of this hidden society within him is the biggest challenge; because, the individual begins to take this layer of social conditioning as his very own being.

Your love is indubitable. Certainly, I know this more than you do because I have received it. I have received it in such conditions that, had it not been, then there was no reason why it should have continued to be. The way I am, it was impossible to be with me even for a moment without being in love. (Bhed: …it was impossible to live with that man even for a moment without making love, when there was no love at all.)

I have nothing with me except my own self. Then living with me…(not clear) what have you gained! And you may have consciously hurt me, that too is…(not clear) you have yourself been hurt and felt regretful in pain. I am unable to even envy you because otherwise I had continuous occasions to feel envious. (Bhed has it: I do not find even any jealousy in you, because there were several occasions of being jealous while living with me continuously.) Had that not been so, your attachment toward me…(not clear) and a hatred would have taken place in you.

But your attachment toward me has grown; and I can never imagine even in my dream that you carry hatred for me in your heart. I see there nothing but love and a feeling of wellbeing for me. It is that love which has given you the strength to endure everything. (Bhed: That very love has given me the courage of tolerating all.)

Then what is it that bothers you? What is bothering you is the weight of thousands of years of social conditioning imbedded underneath layers of your unconscious. Obviously, you are constantly fighting against it and you are winning too. No one else could have done the changes you have done in this direction; because no one else is so much in love with me as you are that one would be willing to go through self transformation for its sake. It is easier to die for someone but very difficult to transform oneself. In dying, at least there is an ego satisfaction; in changing oneself the ego disappears completely. And the ego can be sacrificed only where there is a deep and authentic love. You have done it and you continue doing it.

I am also aware that my view about love is highly uncommon and it will take thousands of years for mankind to be ready for. That is why I know the difficulty of someone who is living while being in love with me.

That’s why it is not possible to say how much appreciation I have for you in my heart. Looking at the change in you and your relaxed mind I feel hopeful that some day…(not clear) people too will be able to do it. The day I shall see you totally free from the conventional ideas of love, at that moment I shall have the proof of…(not clear) human consciousness can do. My life is not just a matter for my own living it; it is also a way and an experiment for the larger humanity to know how to live.

Then again, those who are my people, those who are with me, they will have to pass through many fires. I may be wrong in what I say and do; it may be all wrong, yet I will continue my experiments; in that case, only the results will show whether they were true or false. One thing is certain that, somewhere or other man’s conventional idea about love is at fault because it brings nothing but unhappiness. Indeed its failure is painful; but so is its success also painful. Hence mankind will have to search for a new vision about love. If my thoughts in that direction …anything…(not clear), it would be sufficient. If they are really proven wrong…(not clear) but they certainly can become a cause of awakening for thought.

As far as I am concerned, I am confident about my vision because it is filling my being with immense peace, joy and love. You are helping me in all these experiments. How shall I express my gratitude? Because, the joy I am experiencing is due to my love for you. But know one thing; a day will come when it will be a cause of joy for you too. What else can I say? The more peaceful, simple, and free of conditioning you will become the more you will see clearly your love for me. One day you will certainly come to know what I am carrying in my heart for you.

My regards

…”

Diary of Arvind Kumar Jain, secretary in Jabalpur.

Osho’s own diary from the 1950s is no longer to be found but parts have been published in various newspapers and magazines.  But fortunately five note books from the 1960s written by his secretary Arvind Kumar Jain are still at hand (See Jabalpur section). They were written in the evenings and contain in longhand the talks he had been listening to during the day as well as Osho’s meetings with persons and his traveling schedules:
“Personal Notes in Notes Book taken by Prof. Arvind Jain regarding Acharya’s (Osho) Life Philosophy & psychological Analysis given to Meeting Persons. 1. One Note book of 84 Pages – Notes of Public Meetings Lectures & personal Meetings Guidance of Osho to Meeting Persons. Written on frontcover: ‘Notes of Public Meetings Address & Personal Meetings of OSHO with Dignitaries.’ April 1961 to July 1961.” Excerpts from the first pages:

“I am greatly obliged to be here on the birth anniversary of Bodhisattva Baba Ambedkar [Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, father of India’s constitution]. He was born on this earth with a body, but his real birth happened when he embraced the religion of Bhagwan Buddha. Every individual has two births – one is the normal birth of the body, and the other is the real birth in religion. It is with the second birth that the importance and glory of life gets manifested. Rather than talk about the normal birth of Doctor Sahib, I should rather try to look into why he got influenced by the doctrine of the Buddha.
He re-established Buddhism in India after 900 years and reawakened moral and religious prosperity in India. What is this path? I will say a few things regarding it so that life becomes meaningful.
Our age is an age of deep darkness. Spiritually, we have become blind. A thinker said in New York: Our age has become an age devoid of faith.
But I feel that earlier the atheist did not have faith in God, and the believer had faith in him. But in this age, both are uninterested in God. Earlier it was easier to turn the unfaithful into faithful, but because people are uninterested, it has become difficult to do so. The bliss that I see in here in the idol of Ravi Buddha, I don’t see in any person these days. It is important to live a life, but how to be blissful, how to be free of restlessness, discomfort, sorrow and deep pain – this was shown to us by Bhagwan Buddha 2,500 years ago. This deep scientific method can re-establish bliss in our faithless, valueless society. Thus I shall speak to you in this regard.
I shall begin my discussion with a small story. There is a Japanese Bodhakatha [story]. A blind man went to meet a friend of his. As he got ready to return at night, his friend offered to give him a lantern. The blind man said: to me dark and light mean nothing, they are the same to me. But the friend insisted on giving the lantern saying that although the lantern would be of no use to him, in its light someone coming from the other side could see him, and thus will not run into him in the dark. The blind man took the lantern and left. He had hardly gone 100 or 200 feet when he was struck by someone from the other end. The blind man said, “Can’t you see even in the light of the lantern?” The other man said that the lantern was not lit at all.” In our age too, among nations, between husband and wife, mother-father and sons, all over there are clashes as the light of bliss and religion is not there. The light has gone out. We have to rekindle it. Without religion, man cannot survive on this earth for too long. Doctor Sahib has immensely contributed by re-establishing Buddhism in India.
Bhagwan Buddha saw a fundamental thing: To recognise one’s own true nature…”

Chapter 9. Extremist of Study and Great Lover of Books:

“It is very difficult to understand the depth & wideness of OSHO’s study. It is like the Ocean or the Sky. His devotion towards study is the fruit of Previous Birth’s Punyas. Otherwise it is rare to see such a person who can continue his study in spite of his Physical reducement. It was not only the study of Books, but its critical analysis & Scientific approach towards the different subjects & its creative oration into so many dimensions; it become possible only in Divine life voyage of 59 years which is a wonder in itself & if it is said that Rajneeshji was an extremist studious person of the 20th Century this is not miraculous.
From his early young age he studies in a well planned way & he started studying ‘JASUSI BOOKS’ [agent & detective stories] due to his Adolescent hobby. Up to Higher Secondary level he studied intensively the Communist Ideology. He studied Karl Marx, Tolstoy, Dostovaski, Lenin & pleaded the materialism & tends towards Atheism. I remember that at that time Osho presents such strong Logic against Godly existence that on listening to his Logic the great Devotees of God remains stunned but cannot cross his arguments. My father who is ‘Futaji’ (Parental Uncle) of Osho whenever he went to Gagarwara Osho was opposing his self conscious beliefs & defeated him by Arguments. Osho’s father (Late Pujya Shri Babulalji Jain) has also left the Jains’ religious activities on account of Osho’s arguments for communism. But in his later advanced age life Osho’s father left Gadarwara & went to PUNE Commune where in presence of Master (OSHO) he deeply & intensively perform MEDITATION, experiencing the very Existential Truth & liberated himself from this Wordly Bondage. Osho’s Divine compassion has shown the path of self Realisation & the Devotees who sincerely meditated, experienced the Existential Truth. Osho not only Himself Enlightened and experiencing God’s Bliss but also shown the self attainment way to His Mother Pujya Maa Saraswati Devi who attains Self Realisation & liberated HERSELF.
Upto Higher secondary level & then in College Graduation Degree of First Year Osho remains in touch with Communism but the last salvage come in God’s Consciousness. Whenever Osho resides at Gadarwara in his native place, thereby he visited an Ayurvedic Practitioner, late Pandit Shri Bhagirath Prasadji; here Osho pleaded commandably against God’s existence, fate and Karmas. Osho presented arguments in favour of Materialism & labour’s skillness as pleaded by Karl Marx and other Materialist thinkers & the persons who were present in the premises of Pandit Bhagirath Prasadji become Answerless on hearing the arguments of Osho.
After the Communist Ideology Osho formed a Socialist Group of 10-12 Youths at Gadarwara in which Osho talks on Socialism & its thinkers: Acharya Narendra Deo, Shri Ram Manohar Lohia, Babu Jai Prakash Narayan & other Prominent Thinkers of Socialism. In weekly Group Discussions Osho presented his views on Socialism to whom the listeners listen very seriously. At this time in Hoshangabad, Gadawara & Narshingpur the eminent Political Socialist persons Shri Hari Vishnu Kamath and Thakur Niranjan Singh has made their powerful influence by Socialist views.
At the time of Communism & Socialism Ideology, Rajneeshji come in contact with Comrade Sristhidhar Mukherjee & other Communist personalities at Jabalpur.
After First Year of Graduation Degree in the year 1952-53 the prominent Atheist Rajneeshji has turned himself into Godly spirit as it was destined to be for such a strong disbeliever of God. It is clear as sky that when a youth spirit who denies with open mind the existence of God, then his very powerful insight converts him into the Existential Truth of God and a person like Rajneeshji who has experienced the extremeness of study, thinking and its Scientific Analysis turned him into creative dimension of Vibrations of Consciousness; Experience of Voidness; the Infinite Dimension of Consciousness. He has attained Enlightenment (Sambodhi).
In these days, his physical body was weak and how it will remain fit in the coming period was a problem. The Great Study PERSON never feel tired in his Study and whenever feel some trouble in Head he uses ointment Balm and takes some rest. But Study continues without notice of Health & TIME. During His Study upto Higher Secondary School & afterwards when he stay at Gadarwara he has studied the maximum number of Municipal District Library Books of His interest. The same happened at Jabalpur, when Rajneeshji was studying in Graduation of Arts, He studied most of the Books on Philosophy, Religion, Ethics, Political Thinkers, Sociology, Poetry, Literature Books of Town Hall’s Municipal District Library. The same incidence took place in studying most of the Library Books of Hitkarni City College & D.N. Jain College where he studied for Graduation Degree Course.
When Osho was doing his M.A. Degree at Sagar University, also here he studied the available different subject Books of his choice & in the coming years at the time of professor’s Job in Mahakoshal Mahavidyalaya in the Philosophical Department he has not only studied the Books of his Interest on Different Subjects of Mahakoshal Mahavidyalaya’s Library & Jabalpur University Library but also at the time of Government Service of Professor he invest 70% of Salary Income in purchasing very rare Books of his Interest. The owners of Book-shops were Knowing the Deep Interest of Rajneeshji in Books study and as soon as Rajneeshji enters the Hindi Book-shop named ‘Sushma Sahitya Mandir’, its owner Shri Shobhagyamalji shows the new Arrivals of Hindi Books on Poetry, Literature, Ethics, Religion, Philosophy, Criticism & other Reference Books & he purchased the Books of his choice. The same was the case with English Books & he purchased the English Books from Modern Book House, Jabalpur. If the amount of Books exceeds, the payment was made in the next coming month. The main part of Books which Rajneeshji purchased, almost all the books were studied by him before month ending & the study was seriously done by using the Red & Green points.
Purchasing of BOOKS is a lovely work for Rajneeshji but more lovable work than purchasing was to maintain and arrangement of Books Decently. When we were living together with Rajneeshji at Yogesh Bhavan, Napier Town, Jabalpur, thereby Dadaji Shri Deokinandanji has constructed a meditation Hall with marble flooring and covered the walls with Teak wood & Ply wood. There were eight Almirah in the Meditation Hall where Osho keep the Books & upto staying period from 1961 to 1968 at Yogesh Bhavan, all the Almirah were full of Invaluable Books which Rajneeshji has purchased them.
Studying, Thinking, Analysing, Meditation & in the Sambodhi State of Consciousness Rajneeshji preaching the path of self Realisation by arranging weekly Meditation Class at Yogesh Bhavan in Meditation Hall on Every Sunday from 7.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. in the night hours in which the Youth Devotees, Social Workers, Learned Scholars, professors, Advocates, & people from Different Sectors came in large numbers & doing Meditation. The Devotees now & then solve their spiritual Queries with Osho.
One most remarkable Thought Revolution event of Acharya Rajneeshji was related with Gandhiji & Acharya Vinoba Bhave. When Rajneeshji was studying at Sagar University in M.A., he studied the literature of Gandhiji & Acharya Vinoba Bhave & also make yarn of Khadi on ‘CHARKHA’ every day for one Hour. Osho said that on making yarn at ‘Charkha’ mind become concentrated on the very activity of making yarn & if the yarn making process is going on without breakage, then the work of making yarn brings concentration. After making yarn, Osho bind them in Bundle & by giving the bundle of yarn, Osho purchase Khadi from Khadi Ashram & wear clothes of Khadi. It was my (Prof. Arvind’s) personal experience with Osho.
When we shifted the house from Yogesh Bhavan to Kamla Nehru Nagar with Rajneeshji, here also in a big Hall He has arranged his Books in wooden shelf & in cemented Racks around the Hall at Kamla Nehru Nagar. The Collection of Books is increasing Day by Day.
Osho is not only keeping & arranging the Books decently but also very conscious towards Books. If by chance someone changed the place of Books or study any Book for some time & keep it at other place, Osho asks about the Book, Who has changed the place or touched the Book? For Osho Books were everything.
On 30th June, 1970 Osho for International Spiritual Revolution went to Mumbai for People’s Interest AT-LARGE. I have given the task of despatching the Books of Osho from Jabalpur to Mumbai. I very patiently & slowly packed near about 70 Cartoons, containing 50 Books in each Cartoon. Thereby I have despatched half truckload of Books to Mumbai.
From 1970 till 1974 Osho lived at Woodlands Apartment Peddar Road, Mumbai where new Arrivals of Books make a record & the whole Woodlands apartment Almirahs were full of Books. In 1974, Osho went to Koregaon Park, Pune Commune where the Historical Shape of Osho’s Library come in existence which not only benefitted the Devotees at-large at the time of Osho but also giving its remarkable research benefit to the scholars of eminence presently and till time to come.”

India

“[Osho] is an enlightened master who is working with all possibilities to help humanity overcome a difficult phase in developing consciousness.” (The 14th Dalai Lama (1935- ). Dharamsala, India)

“Osho is the greatest incarnation after Buddha in India. He is a living Buddha.” (Lama Karmapa, late head of the Kargyupta (Red Hat) Sect of Tibetan Buddhism)

“Osho will long be remembered as a great philosopher – a saint and mystic of the twentieth century. His life and work will continue to inspire future generations of humankind and his powerful message of essential unity of mankind will help us to evolve a new global code of ethics for the improvement of the human condition.” (Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India 2004-2014)

“I am very happy to associate myself with today’s function. This book brings together some of the choicest selections of the writing, the discourses of a great Indian, a great mystic, a great philosopher…In his own way Osho captured the essence of ancient wisdom, related it to contemporary needs, tempered it with the modern times and became a powerful messenger of eternal Indian thought and Indian wisdom.” (Dr. Manmohan Singh, former Finance Minister at New Delhi releasing India My Love. 6.2.1997).

“Osho – unmatched orator, unorthodox thinker and an original interpreter of ancient texts.” (Giani Zail Singh, former president of India. 1.2.1990).

“The intelligentsia knows him well, but his thoughts need to be taken further – to all the people.” (Giani Zail Singh, former president of India. New Delhi, 1991).

“Osho was the most original thinker that India has produced: the most erudite, the most clear-headed and the most innovative. And in addition he had an inborn gift of words, spoken and written. The like of him we will not see for decades to come…It is a religion for the irreligious, for the agnostic, for the unbeliever, for the rationalist.” (Khushwant Singh, former editor of Illustrated Weekly of India (1969-1978), National Herald and Hindustan Times, author (Train to Pakistan, History of the Sikhs) and historian)

“Acharya Rajneesh. For liberating the minds of future generations from the shackles of religiosity and conformism. He was a deeply spiritual man who denounced all religions.” (Khushwant Singh. 1991).

“I believe Osho is an intellectual giant. I believe his intellectual output is mind boggling and I believe that it would be a great pity if the whole of India and indeed the whole world is not exposed to his great intellectual output as Osho is one of the greatest men this country has ever produced.” (Shri Ram Jethmalani, Law Minister. India. 2000).

“Perhaps for decades people will still be reading his books – all 650 of them, and connecting with him through audio and video tapes, making him the world’s first remote control guru.” (Amrita Shah. In: The Illustrated Weekly of India. 28.1.1990).

“With Osho, words flow endlessly. Provocatively. Challengingly. In a hundred years, more copies of Osho’s books will have been printed than the Bible itself, till now the outstanding best-seller.” (M.V. Kamath, former editor of Illustrated Weekly of India).

“I believe that Osho was well ahead of his time in terms of his teachings, his thinking and as a practical man. This is very clear that the message of Osho is universal in nature. This also means that the right to His message is equally universal and should be available to any individual. In fact each one of the 6 billion of us that inherit the earth today have a right to the words of Osho.” (Padamshree Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar, renowned scientist, chairman of the committee of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO))

“People like Osho are way ahead of their time. It is a good sign that the youth of today is reading more and more of Osho.” (K.R. Narayanan)
