Talk:Prabhu Ki Pagdandiyan (प्रभु की पगडंडियां)

Prior to this writing, a different book had been erroneously connected with the Oct-Nov 1968 Nargol camp, Prabhu Mandir Ke Dwar Par (प्रभु मंदिर के द्वार पर). Neeten's Osho Source Book, has helped to set that straight, and -- happy ending? -- Prabhu Mandir has sort of found another place to land. It was a natural mistake to conflate the two books, as Pagdandiyan has a number of chapters (see below) whose titles are almost identical to that book's, pursuing a similar theme.

It should be added that Neeten's manner of setting these two books straight is far from unambiguous. His data are largely unprocessed and in fact conflicting, and getting through them requires a good deal of inference, and, finally, the help of another source, the e-book for Prabhu Mandir. Details of all that are at the Talk page for Prabhu Mandir.

There is still a small question regarding the dates, as seven discourses at a camp would "normally" fit most naturally into four days, one the first night and two a day thereafter but this camp was quite eventful and the seven talks may have stretched into five days:

Osho introduced a new meditation based on asking the question Who am I? He started a movement Yuvak Kranti Dal (Youth Revolution Party, or Youth Force). He gave an interview with Chandrakant Vora in which he harshly criticized Gandhi, after which, it is said, the Gujarat state government cancelled plans to donate land for an ashram near Nargol. All this and more reported by Neeten. -- updated doofus-9 (talk) 21:13, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

just got hold of the 1973 edition. although it is labelled as "second edition", my guess it's just a reprint of the 1970 first edition, which would then have the same cover. --Rudra (talk) 06:53, 9 October 2015 (UTC)


That's a pretty wild cover. Do you actually have this edition? Are there other info pages? The one inner one you show has the publisher as Jeevan Jagriti Andolan Prakashan, may be different from the 1st edition. -- doofus-9 05:10, 2 September 2017 (UTC)


Source of dates is first and second JJK editions: 31 Oct 1969 to 3 Nov 1969: first talk in evening, then each day morning and evening talk. Sadhana Path (साधना पथ) (1978 ed.) confirmes that period 31 Oct - 3 Nov 1969.

Hovewer 1969 year conflicts with Main Mrityu Sikhata Hun camp. I checked two talks of it dated 31 Oct 1969 and they are morning and evening talks. So Pagdandiyan cannot be in 1969. I corrected dates and left them in 1968.--DhyanAntar 05:59, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
