Talk:Nirvana Now or Never
In the CD-ROM, the dates and chapters are a mess.
Dates in the intro to this title are mentioned as "Talks given from 1/2/81 to 21/2/81". However, with the chapters "1980" is mentioned, both in the dates and in the Archive codes. It has been asserted that it should be 1981, but he thing is, February 1980 seems to have no darshans at all, whereas Jan and March do. Is there other evidence of 1981 being correct?
It has been mentioned that there is a sannyas letter of a Ma Anand Sarod, which would prove 1981 to be correct (over 1980). Can anyone confirm this as having seen it with his own eyes? And what is the exact date of this letter?
Then there are the chapter numbers. Chapters #1 and 24 - 27 are missing. The chapter numbers adhere to the date-numbers, starting with #2. So can we assume that there were no darshans on Feb 1 and neither on Feb 24 - 27? --Sugit (talk) 14:24, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
There is other evidence of 1980 being "occupied", ie by another darshan diary series, and that is, as stated in the CD-ROM, If You Choose to Be with Me, You Must Risk Finding Yourself. It is the most mangled DD of all in the CD-ROM but it does belong there. I personally know people who definitely took sannyas in that Feb and who are in the text in the CD-ROM but their dates are incorrect there. (The CD-ROM shows dates as Feb 1-10, but the actual darshans took place over the whole month, getting compressed and jumbled in the CD-ROM process.) Feb 1980 is not available for Nirvana.
About the missing 1 and 24-27 for Nirvana, ¿quien sabe? -- doofus-9 16:52, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Sarlo, that's it. In Osho Timeline 1980, I failed to notice the placeholder for If You Choose to Be with Me, You Must Risk Finding Yourself and it's excellent discussion. --Sugit (talk) 10:28, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
It is possible that Nirvana Now or Never ~ 28 event is merged with another (previous) event, because:
- 1) there is too much name (twice as much as other previous darshans of the series);
- 2) previous event of the series is 23rd and there is big gap (pink) in Osho Timeline 1981 between 24th and 28th of February. I wonder why is there the gap in discourses and darshans.--DhyanAntar 14:13, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
