Last line of the author's introduction:
"Thank you Osho, for the best party in the world".
Prartho Sereno, Poet Laureate of Marin County CA 2015-2017 :
With its mysterious logic, vivid images, and sweeping space, only poetry could carry such a tale — this open-hearted devotee's journey through the Garden of the Master. Written in real time , Osho’s poetess - disciple Madhuri takes us from the ox carts and jungle trees of 70's India to the sagebrush and junipers of Oregon's Big Muddy Ranch, And beyond ... to “that field in some far time, when we all were gods." From the intimacies of the master/disciple relationship to familial and sexual love, in poems both earthy and otherworldly, we are invited guests to an improbable and luscious feast.
