Bhagwan's Experiment
The Gateless Gate
In 1978 the German film maker Wolfgang Dobrowolny (Sw Veet Artho) visited the Ashram in Poona and created a unique documentary about Osho, his Sannyasins and the ashram.
He was the first and only film maker ever permitted to film inside the legendary encounter groups.
These pictures shocked the west.
Scenes like these had never been seen before: screaming naked men and women, rolling all over each other in a small room full of mattresses.
