Talk:Nari Aur Kranti (नारी और क्रान्ति) (6 talks)
Regarding the dates suggested for Nari, 1969 comes more from the general vintage of books it is associated with rather than any hard facts, so it may be an assumption in error. In fact, Neeten's Osho Source Book has indicated 1965 as the date for a couple of the discourses, but with a question mark, so the least we can do is add a question mark to 1969.
- (Date range has been extended to include Prem Aur Vivah's likely date range, as Vivah is a very likely component.) -- doofus-9 20:14, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
Publishing anomalies and variations there are a-plenty for this book, at at least for the two publishers which came post-Rebel. Both publishers even have more than one cover design. We'll start with Diamond.
Diamond's two covers appeared at first to be associated with different formats, the primary (bigger image) one with hardback and the secondary one with a paperback edition. But that information turned out to be inconsistent. As did the pub dates, with both 2000 and 2008 associated with the second. A curious and major inconsistency turned up in the TOC available at G**gle Books for this one, and for a bonus twist, an inconsistency in that inconsistency. In the version of G**gle Books i got directly from my search, there was no TOC displayed at all, but at a third-party site, a blog, the blogger had his own version of G**gle Books posted which did include a TOC, where the chapter titles were different from audio titles (see below) and there were only four of them, as opposed to six for the audios. One last and fairly trivial variability is in the spelling of the title and subtitle in Devanagari: Both "Kranti" and the "Aur" in the subtitle come in a couple of different ways, but may be fairly interchangeable in terms of search results.
All that aside, the most interesting curiosity of the Diamond edition was for a while its subtitle, "Sambhog Se Samadhi Ki Or-3." Those who have been around the block with Osho's titles will recognise this as the classic original Hindi title of From Sex to Superconsciousness. But what is this "-3" all about? And what does this book have to do with Sambhog? Plenty, as it turns out.
There is a similar subtitle attached to Jeevan Kranti Ke Sutra (जीवन क्रांति के सूत्र) (2), only it's "-4", which also caused considerable confusion when researching that book. Parts 1 and 2 have also now been found, with G**gle inside-the-book TOCs for all of them matching up, more or less, with the 18-chapter TOC of Sambhog.
However, there are still some things that don't add up in the whole Sambhog constellation: 1) Diamond's chapter titles for Nari, reproduced below, don't match up with audio titles or numbers. 2) Diamond has done this with JKKS as well, in fact going even further by using titles for their version of JKKS which belong to another book, according to an audiobook offered at osho.com. See the relevant discussion pages for details. 3) Sambhog's 18 chapters do not seem to be duplicated in the English translations, which are all much shorter books. We await clarification.
Moving on to the Hind edition(s), there is not so much variability there but still a little. The alt-cover was found only once but maybe that was because i didn't go everywhere. On that one occasion, the publisher was named as Full Circle, the parent company of Hind. Oh well, no big deal there. The subtitle is a mouthful but has no associations or anomalies. So that's it for now. -- updated doofus-9 (talk) 06:45, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Left in the table below are the audio discourse titles, and right, the titles in the four-chapter Nari Diamond TOC and in Sambhog. Note that no title in either column correlates with any in the other column.

Shailendra have stated the same chapter titles as for Audio ones above. --DhyanAntar 18:41, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Diamond edition with 4 chapters has different content. This info was confirmed by the editor of Diamond Publishing - Sw Anand Sadaiv. I moved that on new title - Nari Aur Kranti (नारी और क्रान्ति) (4 talks).
Shailendra indicates on existing an booklet under this title with one single discourse, which was printed long time ago and became a part of Sambhog Se Samadhi Ki Or (संभोग से समाधि की ओर) (yuvak aur yaun). By judging this name it should be ch.7 of Sambhog Se Samadhi Ki Or (संभोग से समाधि की ओर).--DhyanAntar 05:21, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
