Flap text: "In response to questions from individuals and members of the press, Osho speaks on the essential and timeless path of meditation – focusing on India’s ancient heritage of inquiry into transforming human consciousness, of going within ourselves rather than looking to the outer world for fulfillment and recognition. :Set against the backdrop of his return to India after having been illegally deported from the United States, and after a subsequent “World Tour” where he was denied entry to 21 countries, Osho uses those recent experiences to highlight his essential message for the whole of humanity – to grow in consciousness, to discover individual freedom and truth through tapping into our inner treasure of awareness."

See Phir Amrit's talk page for details on all that.
