These are the papers that we would get when we took sannyas, in the time that Osho "gave sannyas" himself, and wrote the new name on a sheet of paper.

Papers and names are arranged in rough order of dates. Those without dates have at least their era known from the stationery used, and are placed at the end of that era. Others not precisely dated have at least the year, with the month approximate. If the list gets large and browsing for names becomes a priority, a different ordering may evolve.
