I segued into AA and my “sponsor” intoduced me to Bhagwan, whereas his friend growing up took Sanyass in Pune.

The book captures the silly stuff that was going on there, but from the point of view of Hugh Milne, bhaywan relatively high ranking member of the ashram community.
Then, as the number of followers grows, the mellow, happy and very pro-sex molne and his inner circle start taking the group into a very different direction. Until I read Milne’s book which lent credibility to the yhat that he was part of the inner circle and didn’t have an axe to grind.
That is why he needs people around him all the time, and the more the better.

It is just me, my views, my opinions, my way of saying, my way of writing. What’s really absorbing, though, is the parallel to our current American situation.
Thanks to God I moved away from the sannyas conditioning and find my love again for jesus, even more I started to appreciate, meditate and pray with the the most profound Christian mystics. However Osho in the old times Poona 1 spoke wonderfully about the grace, surrender, love, devotion teaching of Jesus. Jesus Christ’s wisdom has benefitted humanity on an incalculabe level and should not be dismissed as elementary, IMO.

I found the book quite interesting since I have read a lot of Osho books already and have stayed in his Pune Ashram.

My spirit, my fire, my love and the freedom of being myself. An insider’s view of Osho’s world. But that’s how life should be, perhaps, a mystery with no hard fast answers. As with all persons who attract acolytes, the debate rages whether an innocent one becomes corrupted by adulation or if those seeds of arrogance, self-righteousness and manipulation were always there, dormant. Milne pens an entertaining of life with the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, in India and, more familiar to us Americans, in rural eastern Oregon.
A sweet hug for you my friend, Thomas. Milne was actually one of Bhagwan’s inner circle for quite some time. This was very interesting to read after reading countless of books by Osho as well as failee autobiography and having watched Netflix documentary series about his time in USA.
