Author Info
Osho was the name chosen late in life by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, who was an Indian spiritual leader, prolific author, and celebrity guru. He was born Rajneesh Chandra Mohan in Madhya Pradesh, India. He taught philosophy at the University of Jabalpur in the 1966 and adopted the name Bhagwan, which means "enlightened one" in Sanskrit. In 1974, he founded an ashram at Pune (Poona), which immediately attracted the rich and famous, many of whom showered him with generous gifts. He left India because of tax problems and settled in the United States. Controversy followed him. Known as the "cadillac guru"--he had over 90 of them--he preached free sex based on the Tantra, and became popular with New Age groups. As a result of a financial scandal involving a trusted associate, Rajneesh was arrested for immigration fraud and deported. Following a world tour, during which it was reported that no nation would accept him, Osho returned to India in 1986, where he assumed the name Osho, which is translated as "one upon whom the flowers shower." His many writings include commentaries on world scripture and religious figures through history, and he was an influence on business leaders as well as New Agers. Poona became a center for pilgrims and many visited his ashram. After his death--his followers say "he left his body"--books, audiotapes and videotapes of his lectures number in the hundreds and are translated into over 30 languages worldwide. Foundations and websites kept his message alive and promoted his life and Poona, the center of his legacy, is one of the most visited sites of travel and tourism.On the other hand, Osho has also been listed on many websites that deal with cults. His followers have even gone so far as to copyright the name OSHO.
