Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mysticby Rajneesh
Synopses & Reviews
Osho is one of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching people of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
The Portland guru, known by many aliases but referred to in most of his books as Osho, died around 1990. Drawn from some 5000 hours of recordings, this autobiography allows the human being to speak for himself in more ways than one.
An indispensable work for understanding the life and teachings of one of the most unusual mystics and philosophers of our time.
Ten years have past since, in the words of his attending physician, Osho prepared for his departure from the body that had served him for fifty-nine years "as calmly as though he were packing for a weekend in the country." This volume is recognition that the time has come to provide a historical and biographical context for understanding Osho and his work. Who was this man, known as the Sex Guru, the "self-appointed bhagwan" (Rajneesh), the Rolls-Royce Guru, the Rich Man's Guru, and simply the Master?
Drawn from nearly five thousand hours of Osho's recorded talks, this is the story of his youth and education, his life as a professor of philosophy and years of travel teaching the importance of meditation, and the true legacy he sought to leave behind: a religionless religion centered on individual awareness and responsibility and the teaching of "Zorba the Buddha," a celebration of the whole human being.
Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index.
