Hi Antar, I see you changed the end-date of this series from 7 to 10 Jan. I think this is not correct: the series clearly ends at the 7th. The material from Jan 10 is a quote from the next series. I suggest to roll back this change. --Sugit (talk) 05:06, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

done. But 13th chapter is (see pages XII-XIII), it is part of the book and listed as 13th. It has date Jan, 10. The article IS, as I understand it, an edition, in most cases, - a book (editions = paper book, audio book, electronic book, video disk), therefore, i believe that the period should be determined on the basis of text of a book. --DhyanAntar 05:42, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I agree that it is debatable. Thing is, this book is a "regular" first edition, so not a compilation... except that it has a kind of "afterword", with just a part of another lecture about Osho's name. Some books have a foreword, which is a part of another discourse - in those cases we also do not include the foreword in the date. That is why I plead for having just the regular discourses.

And with compilations we usually do not give dates at all. --Sugit (talk) 17:32, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I like your easy approach. It allows you to select a series of discourses. I would fully agree with you, but these excerpts highlighted in the new own chapter! Since the book has equal extra chapter, let's add the date without changing the primary period of discourse. For example, how do we do when a book has an epilogue (13 + epilogue). --DhyanAntar 05:25, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

the info section shows : "number of discourses/chapters"

so a book may only contain 5 (audio) discourses, but those could be stretched out over 11 chapters incl a foreword and an epilogue. in that case we will show

number of discourses/chapters : 5/11

this book here clearly was published for 12 discourses, although it has 13 chapters. so we show

number of discourses/chapters : 12/13

Hey Rudra, I was not aware of that system "12/13". I always have specified the chapter situation, in cases where it is unclear and relevant. Examples: Glimpses of a Golden Childhood , Life of Osho , The Great Challenge , On Basic Human Rights , Jesus Crucified , Meditation: The Art of Ecstasy , De tao van meditatie , Maar ik zeg jullie , Zijn verhaal. --Sugit (talk) 11:16, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
