Ghat-TOC.jpg

FWIW, Neeten's Osho Source Book has Sushma Sahitya Mandir as the publisher of Ghat Bhulana. For two other books, Satya Ki Khoj (सत्य की खोज) and Satya Ki Pahli Kiran (सत्य की पहली किरण), the publisher is named as Acharya Shree Rajneesh Sahitya Publication Trust. For most practical purposes, these names are interchangeable. -- Sarlo (talk) 09:49, 12 September 2014 (PDT)

The "Original" Seven Chapters

Shailendra has organized this book into an e-book format and shared the info with the wiki. In the table below, "new ed" refers to this e-book, which has not likely been published in this form in hard copy. There are seven chapters remaining of the eleven/twelve above (12 = 11 + preface). The table shows the correspondences with the old numbering system and where the other chapters can be found, ie published in other books. It is assumed that the seven surviving chapters are all "original", in that they are not reproduced elsewhere. Ch 2, a special case, appears to be both original and recycled.

The "old #" column has two numbers. The second is the one in the image above, which counts the preface as #1. The first number in the second column is one less, and is the number Shailendra has used in his sweeping survey of Osho's moveable Hindi chapters at Shifting content in Hindi books (source document). That doc is the source of the "old #" and "other books" info.

Last column indicates events, which checked with text of 1972 edition and compared with text of Shailendra's PDFs of different series, which in turn checked with audios. See those talk page series for detailed info on comparing (tables "Current Understanding").--DhyanAntar 10:21, 14 August 2020 (UTC)


I could not find relation of ch.10 with Jeevan Rahasya (जीवन रहस्य) (ch.3) mentioned in Shifting content in Hindi books (source document). It needs to check more sources for research of this relation.--DhyanAntar 04:13, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
