On the Edge is the absorbing story of a young Swiss woman who, driven by the classic question “Who am I?” finds herself in 1974 in India meeting Osho. His magical presence encourages her to dive into the wonders of meditation. Her vivid vignettes let the reader inside the commune, living out – alongside meditators from 100 countries – the breakthroughs and setbacks of this unique mystery school. Punya goes back and forth from west to east as she works ‘normal’ jobs to earn the means to return to her beloved community, which itself moves from India to Oregon and back. As a chronicler, Punya’s research is impeccable; her voice earnest and even-tempered. Past and present alternate as her calm prose lights up various landscapes with easy sunshine. If you were there, this book will delight you with clear recollections and perhaps new information. For everyone else, Punya is inviting you to an extraordinary time with an extraordinary man.
