Concerning the edition notes, a note in the book bumpf says that a 296-page hardcover version is also available. And the edition associated with the second cover (both ISBN's are equivalent) is attributed to both Rebel and Osho Media International. And fwiw, "Dhyan Yog" appears to be one word on the cover and for that matter in the book bumpf, but it is two words as text on the net just about everywhere else. -- Sarlo (talk) 08:29, 4 June 2014 (PDT)

The TOC above is interesting in that its apparent distribution of chapters is radically different from that of the 2004 hard cover edition. The titles here do all appear somewhere and somehow in the other edition but the latter's organization makes it clear that any correspondence is fairly arbitrary, aside from the order in which they appear.

Where the titles above are ostensibly all "equal" in status, there are three levels of sections, subsections and sub-subsections in the hard cover organization, and the titles above show up in all of these levels. See the various contents images linked from the article page to verify this and marvel.

An amazing feature of the 2004 edition not seen much in other books is the proliferation of college degrees. Every person credited with participation in its production is sporting a college degree. The typist has an MA from Hamburg, and so on. Degrees are trotted out for Meditation: The First and Last Freedom too, but not everyone has them there. More to marvel at! -- doofus-9 04:08, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

The same crew is credited (and with the same degrees) in the 1998 edition, though with their full names, as compared with just single names in the 2004. Also worth noting is that the 1998 is the fifth special deluxe edition and only six years later comes the tenth. A popular book! -- doofus-9 08:26, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Compared 1998 edition of Dhyanyog with 1996 ed. of Meditation: The First and Last Freedom: match, except one joke before part V, which presents only in Hindi ed.--DhyanAntar 12:05, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
