Nothing could be found on the net regarding audio or e-book, cover images or the like. This book's one-time existence is currently known only from two mentions, one in a list of books published before 1970 compiled by Gyan Bhed and the other in a "want list" of early pubs wanted by the Pune Resort to complete their collection, put out by Sw Devendra Bharti in 2008. -- doofus-9 (talk) 07:04, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Source of the "Events with Osho written by Ma Yoga Kranti (Osho's cousin sister)" is Osho's brother Shailendra. Kranti is also the "author" or reporter of Lead Kindly Light, an English booklet from ~ 1972, which is "considered to be very accurate reporting" according to the CD-ROM. That book is the translation of an unknown Hindi antecedent about which the wiki currently says, "A Hindi transcript was never published". Most curiously, the supposed subtitle of Lead Kindly Light is "Some Enlightened Moments with Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh". How about that!

Source of the date, ≤ 1969, is unknown, but likely Gyan Bhed's list of books "published before 1970". -- doofus-9 06:56, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Link above (Nagpur University) establishes that it was published in 1969 and that Kranti is a co-author. Publisher is typo'ed as "Jeevan Jagurti Kendra", should obviously be Jagruti, but since no image is supplied, does that mean we can't correct it? -- doofus-9 15:45, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

We can. This is obvious typo. I corrected name of publisher and added the link to talk.

This book has 20 memoirs of Ma Yoga Kranti. I have text, which shared by Shailendra, and it is similar in narrative as My Diamond Days with Osho by Shunyo. This is memories, so it is worth to move to sannyas section. Do you agree?--DhyanAntar 05:08, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

What does "similar in narrative" mean? Do you have some version in English to consider? I think before moving, it should be compared to Lead Kindly Light, which was considered by the CD-ROM to be an accurate enough rendering of Osho's words to be worthy of inclusion. Given the subtitle of that book ("Some Enlightened Moments with Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh"), we have to give this book a chance as that book's Hindi source. Sugit has Lead Kindly Light. Let's see if a translation of Kuchh Jyotirmaya Kshan ("Some Enlightened Moments") shows it to be the source. -- doofus-9 16:31, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

I tryed to say "similar as the narrative in My Diamond Days with Osho".--DhyanAntar 05:11, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Hindi Books in Print Lists confirm the existence of (at least not late than) 1969.--DhyanAntar 10:31, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Most likely 1972 date of Kuchh Jyotirmaya Kshan ~ 01 is wrong.

Other source of early edition, see on main book page (before February 1968).--DhyanAntar 18:27, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Now it has been corrected to 1967.--DhyanAntar 17:00, 21 December 2019 (UTC)
