"We have a very old sannyasin, Paritosh -- you must see him. He is one of the oldest colleagues of Jung. He is a sannyasin who has come to be here permanently. He himself is a psychoanalyst of the Jungian School. Meet him -- his experience will be helpful to you, because he has travelled from Jung towards me and it will be very helpful for you to move from Jung towards me; it will be easier. Talk to him about what has happened to him."

(Osho, Dance Your Way to God, Aug 2, 1976)

After leaving Rajneeshpuram, he settled in Berlin. He started a weekly group based on the Da Free John movement.
