To give a flavor of the background of the film, here are some quotes from the interview:
Gisiger: ... he is today more known as Osho, there are still many books around, and we tell his story. He started in the 70s in India, and he got lots of followers because his idea was that one could get samadhi, that means enlightenment, trough sex, and this was a very attractive offer.
Interviewer: Enlightenment through sex?
Gisiger: Yes.
Gisiger: ... now let's talk about the 70s, before they came to US. And eh, that was his guideline that he said that the most important thing is to find out who you are, so you have to do special meditation for Western people, who can not stand still, but who have to move a lot. And to have to liberate then ehh, sex, having sex with everybody. To ehhm, enlightenment.
Interviewer: Do you agree with that?
Gisiger: I mean it was a try, I don't agree and it wouldn't function because there is one important thing that they were probably missing to learn and that is empathy for others.
Interviewer: What are your spiritual beliefs, can you share that?
Gisiger: I'm not a religious person.
Interviewer: What about spiritual, you don't have a guru or someone?
Gisiger: I don't have a guru. I believe in spirituality, and a little bit more in psychotherapy.
Interviewer: Psychotherapy, yeah, sure.
Interviewer: How much do you learn about yourself while you are touring?
Gisiger: Ehhm, not so much, because it's always too busy.
Interviewer: It's a distraction?
Gisinger: Yeah.
Interviewer: So then what tools do you use in your everyday life?
Gisinger: Reading.
Interviewer: Isn't that more intellectual?
Gisinger: Ehh, I'm an intellectual person.
