Checked audios and text sources, see table on Talk:Main Kahta Aankhan Dekhi (मैं कहता आंखन देखी).

Two areas of mystery were mentioned in the article page. The first had to do with the apparent independence of its two chapters, which are:

1. ज्योतिष अद्वैत का विज्ञान (Jyotish Advait Ka Vigyan)
2. ज्योतिष अर्थात अध्यात्म (Jyotish Arthat Adhyatma)

Since no book has been found for even the two together, never mind two separate books, we will not be going into enormous detail about that little mystery. But the two chapter titles are mentioned in a few places where it is normally only book titles, more or less having the same status as book titles. Why that should be the case is not known; talks were on consecutive days, having the same theme ...

Info from a stand-alone translation of the two Jyotish's, Astrology, has come to light. It says, "Originally published in Hindi 1972 as Jyotish Arthat Adhyatma and Jyotish Advait Ka Vigyan". Never mind the order, it strongly and fairly authoritatively implies two separate book(let)s as the original source. Why they were published separately can still be a mystery, but that it happened has to be accepted for now. -- doofus-9 03:46, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
Latest is that some scans have been sent by Osho's brother Shailendra which make it clear that at least the first talk was published as a single-chapter booklet. Whether the other one will ever show up or whether the two were ever published together remains unknown. -- doofus-9 20:49, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

The other mysterious bit is the book's relationship with Gahre and MKAD. In fact, in all Hindi-based sources, where it is mentioned at all, Jyotish's two chapters are considered part of MKAD. It is only when it crosses over to English that it gets attached to Gahre's four chapters to make Hidden Mysteries.

It is far more complicated than that though. MKAD and Gahre have their own dance with each other which has been discussed somewhat in MKAD's Talk page. Were that discussion to be complete, with all the back-and-forths and variations including Jyotish, it would run on far beyond the attention span of all but the most dedicated of readers, with hidden mysteries appearing the deeper you go into dimensions beyond the known and vice versa, the proverbial "riddle wrapped in an enigma", suggesting an infinitely replicating and morphing fractal. Maybe some day. -- doofus-9 (talk) 05:15, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
