Savita combines her professional experience as a psychotherapist, her first- hand experience as a sannyasin and her passion for writing in giving life to Osho disciples’ stories. Discussing her 2 books based on interviewing sannyasins, Savita elegantly articulates her understanding of crucial topics such as the relationship between Osho and women, Osho the man behind the public figure and the Master/Disciple relationship.
