"Osho is the most
dangerous man since Jesus Christ... He's obviously a very effective man,
otherwise he wouldn't be such a threat. He's saying the same things that nobody
else has the courage to say. A man who has all kinds of ideas, they're not only
inflammatory-they also have a resonance of truth that scares the pants off the
"Wit and playfulness
are a tremendously serious transcendence of evil, and this is one thing that
Osho understood better than any contemporary teacher that I can think of.
Gurdjieff had an element of that in his teachings, but certainly in the past
fifty years there has not existed a teacher in the world who understood the
value of playfulness and wit quite so well as Osho."

closer to him -and in a strange kind of way, closer to ourselves."

"He discourses with
eloquent familiarity on virtually all the world's great mystics - Zen masters,
Hassids, Sufis, Bauls, Buddha, Lao-Tzu, Jesus. Though he "knocks the
mind," Osho is an intellectual's guru, and his message is aimed not at
spiritual sheep but at rebels and risk takers - people who consider themselves
intelligent, adventurous, and

"I have heard Shree
Rajneesh and have been inspired by his talks. His works are sublimne and seek
to liberate the soul of humans. Indeed his presentation is unique, his goal is
great and his success in liberating each person from the mafia surrounding the
soul is rewarding reading. The message that he had to deliver must reach
everywhere. Ultimately salvation comes when one attains freedom from oneself.
That, I believe, is the consummation which exposure to Osho may help."
