Here are stories about Osho’s childhood encounters with death, his adventures in school and his confrontations with the so- called authorities. The Buddhas do not want to reflect the beauty of the world, nor does the world in any way intend to be reflected by the Buddhas, but it is reflected. Nobody wills.

From The Sannyas Wiki. In what may be the juiciest, most intimate tapestry of talks ever given by an enlightened master, Osho paints the stories of his delightful, inquisitive and mischievous childhood. He began his explorations into truth with an incredible innocence and courage. With his spirited nature, he questioned every orthodox belief and everyone who blindly espoused any such belief rather than by their own authentic reason. Here are stories about Osho’s childhood encounters with death, his adventures in school and his confrontations with the so- called authorities.
The book is full of hilarious incidents and stories about sex, smoking, and religion, along with moving and wondrous dialogues with the local enlightened man in his village. Part of the Nitrous Books series. Dictated in dental sessions in Lao Tzu Grove, Rajneeshpuram. The sessions were a daily occurrence, sometimes twice daily, and preceded by dental treatment. According to Sw Devageetall tapes were destroyed on Osho’s request.
See discussion for an exploration of when talks were given. In the edition, before chapter 1, there is a page stating “Series 4”, glkmpses continuity from Books I Have Loved. The chapters are then called “Session 1” through “Session 51”. Of these chapters, “session 29”, where Osho would have talked about his adoption, contains fake material or is entirely fake.

Rebel Publishing House, India Edition no. Revised edition table of contents edition Lao Tzu Grove, Rajneeshpuram unknown none Introduction with the edition This book is one of the most unusual books ever. It is the juiciest, most intimate glimpse of this most unique of beings, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Bhagwan is a living Buddha. In the West we prefer our religious innovators to be dead, preferably long dead.
It is more comfortable that way, more secure. The most popular religions are those whose founders have been dead for glimpsss longest time. Bhagwan is alive, and very much so. His words are not faint squiggles chldhood ancient dessicated scrolls, but direct, accurate observations from the highest peak that man’s consciousness is able to attain.
He speaks to us directly, vibrantly, and His very presence is a fire which finds an ember smouldering deep within each of our souls. Bhagwan is the growing point at the pinnacle of the human tree. He has traveled all the paths, all the highways and byways open to any man through the aeons of time.
He has played all the roles, has seen through all the games, done everything, been everywhere, and now He is a living statement of total fulfillment.
Whatever our race, our culture, our religious standpoint, Bhagwan can bring us to that quantum leap in consciousness which takes us high above mind into the soaring freedom of pure being.
Being conditioned from the past, we think all religion needs to be heavy, full of pain and renunciation. Being with Bhagwan could not be lighter; His way is the way of laughter and song, it is full of dancing and the sheer delight to be alive right now, this very moment. It is Bhagwan’s vision to create an environment where each of us can reach to this peak of consciousness, and He calls this divine milieu “the Buddhafield.
At this moment we are building such a place deep in the heart of Oregon, U.
Osho Glimpses of a Golden Childhood: Chapter 02
This is the most outrageous experiment in the world, and it is taking place at this very cihldhood. Bhagwan’s vision is already a living reality. We are witnessing the birth of a whole new man, with a whole new consciousness. Bhagwan calls him Zorba the Buddha.
Bhagwan knows all this is possible because He is the new man, Zorba the Buddha. As if all this weren’t enough, there is more, much more. With Bhagwan there is always more; He acknowledges no chuldhood, known or unknown. Enlightenment is a rare dhildhood, and only the most sublime people ever achieve it.
It happened on March 21, Of those few souls who break through the mind into the freedom of awakened consciousness, almost none can, or wish to, bring others to that same point.
But there are incredibly rare beings who can bring others to their own fulfillment. These gifted individuals are known as enlightened Masters. The greatest names in the history of mankind are these: They all changed the course of human consciousness. Bhagwan is an enlightened Master. There is still more.
Most of the Masters from the past knew one path only. It was possible for their disciples to reach the other shore but their way was single, one-dimensional. Hence their appeal was limited to a particular place, and a particular time.
There is yet a final possibility for a human being: Such a man is known as a Master of Masters. Bhagwan is a Master of Masters. The first series was Bhagwan simply gossiping on this and that; talking mainly of silence and beauty. But when Bhagwan gossips, He jokes, brings in all sorts of apparently unrelated topics, and each session was light and wonderful.
The first two series are in a single volume called Notes of a Madman. The third series was a recollection of books Bhagwan had read and treasured in His reading lifetime. He used to read up to twenty books each day! It was on His doctor’s advice that He stopped reading, but He loved books, particularly those which give a glimpse into the unknown, cnildhood words are bathed in light and whose beauty of expression can lead their readers to share their poetry and inspiration.
This volume is called Books I Have Lovedand it is a Master’s view of the world of enlightened literature. The fourth series is called Glimpses of a Golden Childhood. Bhagwan has never spoken of His childhood, not out of glimspes, but simply because anything from before His date of enlightenment was dead to Him.
In this book He again visited those early years.
He gives us fascinating and hilarious tales of Himself and those closest to Him. He tells of those enlightened Masters who recognized His potential and helped Him survive His hazardous first years. He is an amazing man and He was an equally amazing child. These notes were given in earlyand were His last words before He went into silence for an indefinite period of time. It’s glijpses story of truth. Once upon a time in the city of Rajneeshpuram, Oregon, in that insanity we call America, the living Master Osho went to his dentist.
This in itself is not unusual. Even the enlightened ones have chhildhood. What is unique is that the Master turned this seemingly ordinary occasion into an event, another chance to share his being with us. The dental work was fairly routine and, near the end, Osho said a few quiet words as if to himself. Devageet wrote them down. Devageet had no idea then what he was doing.
Little did he know that these few words were the first sparks that would ignite a great fire. But the Master knew.
He had seen the words written and later that morning he called a meeting. Four attended the mysterious meeting: Devageet, the dentist; Devaraj, Osho’s personal physician; Ashu, the dental nurse; and Vivek, Osho’s goldeb. At the appointed time they were shown into Osho’s room and those who had not yet seen it received a bit of a shock.
