This is the fourth of the four known letterheads featuring the name of Osho's organization Jeevan Jagriti Kendra, with its address at 115, Napier Town in Jabalpur. Collectively they are so far the earliest solid record of JJK's existence. The third one was the only one of the four using Devanagari script; this one reverted to the Roman alphabet and consolidated that departure from previous letterheads.
This one has a couple of innovations in the design, while maintaining the distinctive cursive script for "Acharya Rajnish". The address now runs up the left side instead of across the bottom, and of course most notable is the image in the top left corner, which has pushed Acharya Rajnish slightly to the right.
The image is of a single paisley teardrop. At the time, the mid-60s, this type of image was taking off as a major fashion in the west. Having originated in Persia and spent a few centuries in Kashmir, it was a perfect visual symbol to inaugurate the west's coming fascination with things eastern, and it seems highly unlikely that Osho was unaware of this trend.
In the event, this was the most used of all the JJKNapier letterheads, but still that was not a lot, only 22 letters that we know of. But the design lived on, more or less, surviving almost intact in NapierTown-4 Letterhead, with the "Jeevan Jagruti Kendra" removed and "Yogesh Bhavan" re-inserted
It will be noticed that the spelling of Osho's org Jeevan Jagriti Kendra up top above is different from that of the letterhead description below (and the words immediately above referring to it). The reasons for these differences are explored in depth at JJKNapier-1 Letterhead. It is to be further noted that the "Jeevan" here in the letterhead has evolved from the "Jivan" in JJKNapier-1 and -2. A definitive transliteration of his org's name is a work in progress, never quite achieved.
This letterhead has, in the upper left corner:
- the image, and Acharya Rajnish
And running up the left side:
- Jeevan Jagruti Kendra, 115, Napier Town, JABALPUR (M. P.)
