Details: “What was it like living with Osho?”
This is a candid and honest account of a German seeker who, for a combined total of 8 years, has lived in the communes around the enlightened mystic Osho, in Poona, India and in Rajneeshpuram, Oregon. In a detached way, without sugar-coating and laced with a deadpan sense of humor, Bodhena relates how he came to find Osho and what life was like at the famed Shree Rajneesh Ashram of the late 70s, how “The Teaching” happened to him. He was also a member of the experimental commune in Oregon and of the commune in “Poona II” during the late 80s, after Osho’s return to India.
This story offers answers to what an involvement with Osho has meant to an individual seeker and outlines how he continued on his path after he left the commune, out in the world.
