Rajneeshpuram

Surendra found some passages in Maneesha’s book from the eighties, ‘Osho: The Buddha for the Future’ that throw more light on the ‘edited and missing’ parts of discourses given by Osho in Lao Tzu House, Rajneeshpuram, to small groups of sannyasins in 1984/1985.

Excerpt from Deva Abhiyana’s recently released book, ‘The Long Reach of the Dharma’. “I needed peace of mind – and 30 years – to understand the lessons of Rajneeshpuram. So here I move into uncharted territory, by reporting things that were not always my direct experience.”

An excerpt from Punya’s book On the Edge recounting the time she was filing press clippings: “Most of my friends had no idea of what was going on in the media and would not have been particularly interested in knowing it either.”

The first thing is, have you binge-watched it yet or not? Just tracking the publicity leading up to Netflix’s launch of the 6-part docuseries, ‘Wild, Wild, Country’, had certainly made me very eager to see it, writes Dhiren.

Osho still documentary

Netflix’s documentary series (to be shown on the weekend of March 16) about a guru cult’s Oregon expansion in the ’80s is full of unbelievable twists and intriguingly short on easy answers.TV review – Sundance 2018. Published in The Hollywood Reporter.

Eclipse 2017 RP Feat

The Great American Eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21, 2017, which has already been widely marked as an auspicious day. Incidentally, the path of this eclipse will pass right over Rajneeshpuram. Arjuna explains his take on it.

Lani speaks about her life after leaving Rajneeshpuram; her travels (Israel, Greece, India, Korea and Russia during Gorbachev’s time), to promote Osho’s books at fairs and to find suitable publishers and, of course, about how she ‘became’ Osho’s World Ambassador.

Lani talks to Punya about events during her young adulthood and seeing Osho for the first time. “The newsletter had an article about David working on the farm in Rajneeshpuram. I said to myself, ‘My brother is working on the farm? Getting his fingernails dirty? There must be something happening there.’”

Zorba the Buddha Ft

Nandan reviews the book by Prof. Hugh B. Urban, subtitled ‘Sex, Spirituality and Capitalism in the Global Osho Movement’; published by University of California Press

Whatever happened to Vinod Bharti, friends from outside India sometimes inquire. And the Daily Bhaskar (TDB), India, in its usual sensational yellow press and not-so-factual mind-set, has recently asked: What has happened to actor Vinod Khanna?

In this video, ol’ blue-eyes Frank Sinatra’s song ‘I Believe in You’ was mixed with footage of Osho and Rajneeshpuram. It would all fit perfectly had the words ‘I believe in you’ been changed into ‘I am in love with you’! Belief is not what Osho or sannyasins are about. Believing can be likened to crutches, love is flying high and independent!
