i made this a first edition cause there is no hindi FE --Rudra (talk) 00:59, 13 January 2014 (PST)

I'd say call it a Translated First Edition. The Hindi version even has a proper name, just it's not officially published.

I would like to have the TFE's all translations and FES all original language. --Sugit (talk) 03:05, 13 January 2014 (PST)

Neeten's Osho Source Book (Bibliography page) has entries for a 1967 Hindi pub date and one in 1969 (a month after Towards the Unknown). (Transliterated as Ajnat) -- Sarlo (talk) 00:21, 30 August 2014 (PDT)

I could find the match of first part of ch.2 (before p.46) and beginning of ch.2 (of 5) of Agyat Ki Or. There are the match, although hardly edited. Sources: original Eng booklet and Hindi version of PDF from Shailendra.

I suspect that first edition of Hindi book may be 2 chapters. For further comparing we need this book.

When matching Eng and Hindi will be set, we will be able to create TOC for this book and for The Long and the Short and the All. Synopsises for events to be added too.--DhyanAntar 06:04, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Matching found for both chapters: these two chapters are translation from Agyat Ki Or 1967 ed., which also has 2 chapters, which later published as ch.2-3 in Shiksha Mein Kranti (शिक्षा में क्रांति).--DhyanAntar 03:17, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

rough market value

The booklet 'Towards the Unknown' (1969) in poor condition was sold for the price of $120 at Amazon on October 12, 2015. Swamisitar (talk) 04:32, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Sitar love, this wiki is strictly non-commercial and i don't really care about book prices. bibliographies don't mention book prices, we leave that to Amazon and eBay. --Rudra (talk) 17:07, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

As time goes on many of these items get lost or disappear into estates. I meant for this knowledge to be factual information about his life works, not necessarily with commercial intentions. But I will respect your wishes and not include this information. with love. Swamisitar (talk) 21:53, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

book spelling

Looks like the spelling of the book name is lowercase 'towards the unknown' verses the current 'Towards the Unknown'. Swamisitar (talk) 06:51, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Sitar, please refer to the Help pages regarding the spelling of the book titles. we had months of discussion about that and finalised a format.


Does anyone know if there are multiple versions of this booklet? I see first edition 1969, but I've seen a 1972 edition where the inside pages where black. Swamisitar (talk) 03:11, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Neeten's Bibliography page (link above) has lots of info on old editions and specifically mentions two such books (white on black) but Towards the Unknown is not one of them. Want to add the info on that other edition here? I expect the first ed is normal, ie black on white. -- doofus-9 18:39, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Does anyone know if this item has a dust jacket, or is the cover showing in the images. Swamisitar (talk) 06:54, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
