No Mind's Dedication


This beautifully presented volume chronicles twelve days of upheaval in the life of Osho and his disciples as he returns from a long period of illness to announce that he is dropping his former name, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Using anecdotes about Zen masters and their disciples, as well as a magnificent selection of haikus, Osho reveals the mystery of Zen as something to be savored rather than solved. He then confirms the assertion of the Japanese seeress Katue Ishida that he has become a vehicle for the wandering soul of Gautama the Buddha, who has promised to return to the world as Maitreya, the friend. The end of the saga comes as a shock, a surprise, and an awakening - a landmark of a book, intriguing and amusing.
