: I could be wrong but I think this is all

: Yes, I am a fan of Osho. Of his writings. As

i live in the land of osho (now) -- southern oregon. i know people who knew of him, and some who followed him. i moved here after his ashram was scattered to the four winds, so to speak.
there's two sides to every story, and then there's the truth, as the ojibway would say. however...seems to me his guru path was also, from what some of the reported circumstances say, an example of how 'power corrupts'.
goes back to the daoist principle of not leading.... but osho was from what i understand definitely 'leading'.
