Rakesh had a slow start with Osho. He missed the first chance to meet him and when he did, it was an underwhelming experience. After taking sannyas, Rakesh lived in the Osho commune for many years even after Osho’s death. A loyal and committed disciple, Rakesh slowly realised that he had been called by another Master and continues today his spiritual journey with a new Master.
Today our guest is Swami Anand Rakesh. Rakesh is a child of Holocaust survivors and a refugee from Communism during the Hungarian revolution of 1956 who grew up in Canada. Rakesh is a seeker of truth and bodyworker. After many years living in India, today Rakesh went back to Canada to live in the presence of John de Ruiter and is currently writing a book about his life.
