Anandmayee Osho 02.jpg

Osho wrote hundreds of letters to Ma Anandmayee, whom he recognised as his past-life mother, starting in 1960. Most were written in the early 60s. 120 of those letters were compiled into a book, Kranti Beej (क्रांति बीज), or "Seeds of Revolution", later translated as Seeds of Revolutionary Thought. Kranti Beej was one of his most influential early books.

Many letters were also published in Bhavna Ke Bhojpatron Par Osho (भावना के भोजपत्रों पर ओशो). The degree of overlap between these two books is unknown, as is Bhavna's First Edition history.

The wiki has been fortunate to obtain 221 high-quality images of Osho's letters to her. Links to each are or will be below, with notes, where applicable, if published. Currently under construction, stay tuned.

Undated

As there is a rough correlation between file number order and chronological order among the dated letters, there is a reasonable chance that these undated letters can be approximately dated simply by putting them time-wise between letters they are between file-wise. This is far from guaranteed of course, but as a potential aid to rough placement, the date ranges as suggested by this method are included below. ** = special, see notes below the list. And some will / have become located in time by getting paired with a dated "other half" and text matched to a published letter.

Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 001 22 Nov - 25 Nov 1960
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 002 29 Nov - 8 Dec 1960
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 003 1 Jan - 15 Mar 1961 **
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 004 the undated "first half" of Letter written on 12 Feb 1961
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 005 12 Feb - 8 Mar 1961
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 006 16 Mar - 26 Mar 1961
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 007 15 Apr - 25 Apr 1961 **
Undated Letter written to Anandmayee 008 18 Nov - 28 Nov 1961 **

Notes re date range

Undated #003's possible date range is much larger than most, since the letters before and after it (in terms of file numbers) take a jump backward timewise.
There are indications that Undated #007 is not in the stated time range, see its talk page for details.
There are indications that Undated #008 is a PS that belongs with the Letter written on 28 Nov 1961 pm, awaiting confirmation.
