The author, Subhuti Anand Waight was a political journalist at Westminster. He gave up his career and spent 14 years living with Bhagwan as the latter’s disciple. In the book, he writes about Bhagwan’s cult which took the world by surprise.
Commenting on the development, Coronet said, according to The Bookseller, “‘Wild Wild Guru’ reveals new insider details about Bhagwan including his unorthodox teachings on sex, use of violence, misuse of power and all the criminal activities that led to a national scandal and the first bioterror attack in the United States.

It acknowledges the depth of meditation that people experienced in Bhagwan’s presence and the transformation his disciples went through.”
