Reminds me of the days of Rashneshies (sp?) on the east side years ago.

Interesting times.

Well, they were somewhat contemporaries, and both were great aggregators of wisdom and knowledge, but Alpert/Dass never really dove headfirst into the numerous addiction traps that trainwrecked the Rajneesh/Osho empire.

I have related this on the site in the foggy past, but I remember Sheela departing the U.S. on a Pan Am flight from Seattle to London.  Several U.S. Agents ( can't remember their "denomination") came to the Seattle ticket
counter several days later looking for verification of her departure.  I was lead to believe she was carring a great deal of cash.

....and by the way Z'ster...

You act like "guess he can't be here now" is a respectful comment on his life.

Time to dismount from your high horse and put a prayer flag on your roof.

Rajneesh was never that.  If you understand his history you would understand that he was first and foremost a con artist.

Some of his work is pretty impressive. Book of Secrets, Vol 1 is arguably a masterpiece.

I knew that subjective interpretation was coming when I posted that, but I won't take it personally.

If one, settling a pillow by her head

Should say: “That is not what I meant at all;

That is not it, at all.”

Not at all.  The  disagreement seems more a history discussion.
