Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic
Few lives on this our little planet stand out as quite the spiritual ride as Osho’s. The maverick/rebel Guru lived it to the fullest and left a great heritage behind.
Osho did not write this autobiography, but rather, it is culled from his many, many lectures—still, the culling is done so expertly and seamlessly that he might has well have written it; it does read like an autobiography.
I truly believe that Osho was enlightened; there is no doubting his description of his awakening process: it rings true all the way. That alone, if anything, should garner respect and attention (it sure did mine). What he then did with his enlightenment is what makes him a rebel.
Most controversies surrounding him are addressed here, some in more depth than others, but what I take away from the book are two things: firstly, among us humans, bad or controversial news seems to travel at ten times the volume and twice the distance as good news; and secondly, I believe that Osho was simply too controversial a figure for most governments to stomach, hence what in essence was a persecution.
If you are at all spiritually inclined, I wholeheartedly recommend this book; it may just change your life (and most likely will see you scouring Amazon for other Osho books).
