The Rajneesh Bible, Vol 1

Jump to: navigation, search

Osho's first words spoken after a period of three years of silence herald a completely new dimension to his work. It is as if he has drawn a sword and slices through the deceit of history. Man, his politics and so-called religions all come under the scalpel of Osho's master surgery. Responding to questions solely from his disciples, Osho exposes the psychology of all creeds based on the idea of "following" and takes apart the whole question of belief in God. He also answers questions such as whether he considers himself to be a messiah, and lambastes the attitude of traditional holy men towards women. He lets us in on his understanding of the political mind-set; how he feels about communism, why his sannyasins lead such a rich life and whether they are brainwashed or hypnotized, and much, much more.
