re Jeevan Hi Hai Prabhu Aur Na Khojna Kahin‎

Title has been corrected re spelling of "Prabhu." "Jeevan Hi Hai Prabhu" is the title of an audio available at Osho World and Tao Vision, plus that title is mentioned at numerous other sources. Only here and a couple of places is it coupled with "Na Khojna Kahin." (Actually, "Aur" just means "and.")
Still, book image does add those extra words, so possibly there is extra material not in the original JHHP. Sarlo (talk) 22:41, 1 September 2013 (PDT)

New view is that this "Aur Na Khojna Kahin" is in smaller letters on the cover and referred to in no Hindi sites, so is very likely just a subtitle. -- Sarlo (talk) 23:11, 5 March 2014 (PST)

Jul 2017 update, 1989 edition:

The 1989 edition, just added, has a few anomalies. It is missing two chapters, #4 and 6 above, otherwise titles are the same. Its nominal publisher, a Center in Gujarat, Manan, is not found elsewhere in the wiki for anything. Other than their name as the publisher, all the rest of the gang seem to be the usual 50 Koregaon Park lot. Perhaps Manan made a donation to pay for publishing it.

And the nominal subtitle, which has not been part of the title in the wiki's reckoning, assumes a larger profile in this 1989 edition, with its font identical to that of the title. Such an appearance, along with its different chapter content, might normally make it part of the title and necessitate the creation of another page, but the larger font and omission of two chapters could just as easily be accidental or random, so my feeling is to leave it as it is.

What this subtitle actually does to augment the title might also be explored. The approximate meaning of the whole thing would be, "Life itself is the only god, and no need to search anywhere else". The "and no need to search anywhere else" is fairly unnecessary in this version, so another reason not to elevate it to full titlehood. But i will consult more about it. I note that it is left completely out of the 2014 edition from Krishna Prakashan, admittedly an "outside" publisher.

One other matter in this edition is its dating, July 1989, with author's name as "Osho Rajneesh". This edition has the potential for another version of Osho's name change explanation, so i will be exploring that too. -- doofus-9 19:37, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
