Review of From Sex to Superconsciousness by Osho

कही की ईट कही का रोड़ा भानुमति ने कुनबा जोड़ा.

"From Sex to Superconsciousness" (Hindi "संभोग से समाधि की और") by Shri Chandra Mohan Jain aka Acharya Rajneesh  aka Osho's most famous and most controversial book.
 
He takes eastern philosophy and interprets it in a bizzare way. He is something like Indian Dan Brown. like brown, Osho also takes historical and religious facts and then draws very improbable concusions. But he is more than brown; a self proclaimed God and is not just any garden variety godmen. Godmen are dime a dozen in India but osho is exceptional. Bhagwan Rajneesh. Osho is his name given by himself and derived from word oceanic meaning dissolving into ocean.
 
He is almost a genius, very well read, sharp analytical mind, very good with words, has vast vocabulary like Shakespeare and persuasive too. he had a large following all around the world. He was too hot to handle even for a free country like USA and was deported to India. He had 93 Rolls Royce cars at one point of time and many female lovers.
 
Anyway he has a new perspective and should be read once.
