First about Pad Ghunghroo Bandh. PGB as a two-volume set has never been "official," in the sense of either volume being referred to as Vol 1 or 2, nor has it shown up as a subtitle. Nevertheless, the two Meera volumes -- Maine Ram Ratan Dhan Payo (मैंने राम रतन धन पायो) is the companion -- are often and in many places not thought of as separate entities, but parts of the greater PGB, occasionally to the point where PGB is the main title with Jhuk Ayee in parentheses or even not mentioned at all.

That they are thematically united is clear, with the same subtitle even showing up on their covers, मीरा दीवानी पर चर्चा सुहानी (Meera Diwani Par Charcha Suhani). The phrase "Pad Ghunghroo Bandh" is attributed to Osho. It is a play on the name of one of Meera's most famous songs, Pag Ghunghroo Bandh.

It appears that PGB does rule in audio. Both OW and osho.com have complete audiobooks called PGB, with all the mp3's titled as in the "official" books except that in o.com's version, those titles are preceded by the book title and a colon. OW has divided its offering into two CD's with one called "PGB (Maine Ram)" etc 1-10 and the other just plain "PGB" 11-20. -- doofus-9 05:23, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
PGB is also the title of a book of letters written by Osho mostly in the late 60s. There appears to be little chance of confusion between the two though, as the Meera-books collective title has official currency only as audio, where the letters book doesn't go at all. -- doofus-9 06:12, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

About the OMI edition, there are a couple of matters. Only one cover image or ISBN could be found but there are some variations in other data, such as 298 instead of 300 pages, or Rebel as the publisher. Since no definitive presentation could be found anywhere, with all the info authoritatively in one place, the result has been a cobbling together -- a pub date here, an ISBN there, a cover somewhere else -- hopefully more or less accurate. -- Sarlo (talk) 08:00, 28 April 2014 (PDT)
