Who is Osho ?Can you name some of the best osho books?

O.S.H.O is one of the greatest man of the century.Born as “Chandra Mohan Jain” and later on by the name “Aacharya rajneesh,Osho”.

Due to his open attitude towards human sexuality ,he earned the name “sex guru” in Indian media and the “Rolls Royce Guru” in United States.

He was raised by his maternal grandparents till he was seven years old by his parents, Taranpanthi Jains Babulal and Saraswati Jain.

When he was seven years old, his grandfather passed away, and he moved in with his parents in Gadarwara. He was a talented and disobedient student during his school years, and he had a reputation as a tough debater.

He refused to get married despite his parents’ persuasion. Rajneesh later claimed that on March 21, 1953, when he was 21 years old, during a mystical experience while sitting beneath a tree, he attained spiritual enlightenment.

EDUCATION

He entered the University of Sagar after completing his BA in philosophy there in 1955. There, he got his MA in philosophy (with distinction) in 1957.He was hired as a teacher at Raipur Sanskrit College right away, but the vice-chancellor soon requested that he seek a transfer because he viewed him as a threat to the morals, integrity, and religion of his pupils.
He began lecturing in philosophy at Jabalpur University in 1958 and was given the title of professor in 1960.
In addition to working at the university, he also travelled extensively in India under the alias Acharya Rajneesh (Acharya is the Sanskrit word for teacher or professor; Rajneesh was a childhood nickname).
He resigned from his teaching position at the behest of his employer in 1966 following a contentious speaking tour.

 

ASHRAM

He scandalised Hindu authorities by urging more acceptance of sex in hisĀ  1968 lecture series, later published under the title From Sex to Superconsciousness, and gained notoriety as the “sex guru” in the Indian press.
He travelled to Mumbai from Jabalpur at the end of June. He initiated his first set of followers, or neo-sannyasins, on September 26, 1970. Laxmi Thakarsi Kuruwa, his new secretary, had chosen the name Ma Yoga Laxmi as his first student by that time.

He took on the name “Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh” in 1971.Rajneesh spoke at the Pune ashram from 1974 to 1981. Many followers opted to remain for many years. In addition to the debate surrounding the therapies, the ashram’s reputation started to suffer from claims that sannyasins were abusing drugs.
