The Last Testament, Vol 1

At the commune in America, for the first time ever Osho grants interviews to the world media. Included are questions from Good Morning America, Der Spiegel, 60 Minutes (Australia), The Guardian (England), Panorama (Italy), Portland TV, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and others. In dynamic, often humorous and always intimate exchanges, Osho talks with reporters about why he chose to break his years of silence, his views on the Pope, how the world can save itself from global suicide, and his own reputation as the "free sex guru." These interviews continue into the World Tour, after a break of a few weeks.
notes
This book contains a selection of interviews with the world press, all from the Ranch era.
Excerpts later published as The Man of Truth.
Most of the 166 interviews Osho gave during the Ranch era and World Tour have never been published in book form.
They have been published on the CD-ROM though; there they appear under the titles The Last Testament (Vol 1) to (Vol 6). See #Correspondence between this Book and the CD-ROM and also The Last Testament (series)). Those volume-names are also used for audio and video media.
