Beyond and Beyond


[Rajneesh, Bhagwan Shree] [Osho] Bombay, India: Life Awakening Movement, 1972. Staplebound wraps. 26pp. +2p bibliography of Rajneesh works published in India. Very fine. Extremely scarce. 3 copies in WorldCat - two US and one Netherlands.

Text of a July 21, 1970 interview with Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (1931-1990) by a delegation of US students.

Later known as Osho, Rajneesh was the leader of the Rajneesh movement which, among other things, took over a town in rural Oregon in the early 80s. But before all that tomfoolery, Rajneesh was based in India, where he introduced his Dynamic Meditation method in 1970, the year this pamphlet was first published. In 1971, he adopted the name Bhagwan Shree ("Blessed one" "Sir"). In 1989, after being deported from the US following a 6-part Netflix series worth of shenanigans, he again changed his name to Osho, an honorific for a Buddhist priest. Said to be absurdly charismatic, Rajneesh's legacy is as an incredibly influential and controversial spiritual leader, which is to be expected from one known in India as the "sex guru" and in the US as the "Rolls-Royce guru." Damn.
