The official launch of Satyananda’s book, translated by Dhiren, took place on Osho’s birthday on December 11, 2018.
On Osho’s birthday, the English translation of Satyananda’s book was finally launched, 40 years after the original bestseller was published in Germany. ‘The Cosmic Madhouse’ took two years of careful midwifery and research, and the result is a beautiful book which is a joy to read.
The birthday celebration and book launch was held at Shendo Institute in Stellshagen, North Germany, accompanied by high-energy music and Osho songs played by Jamie (guitar), Arpita (swarmandal/percussion) and Nirdosh (drums), with over two dozen friends joining in.
Following on from a beautiful Osho discourse about surrender (The Book of Wisdom), Dhiren read some extracts from ‘The Cosmic Madhouse’, transmitting some of Satyananda’s witty style with sensitivity and eloquence. An impromptu champagne reception rounded off the celebration!
