In collaboration with J. Sri Bhagovwid (who I do custom graphics for, for free, and snippets of wisdom).

J. Sri Bhagovwid is highly critical of OSHO, claiming, “The most amazing thing about OSHO is the miracle of persuading people he is anything but a clown. He has had armed guards, fleets of cars, and inspected his female followers breasts and “chakras”. The worst thing about him is he took advantage of naive people seeking a better, more spiritual life. His corruption destroyed the lives of many of his followers, which is not hard to imagine when one considers he got all of their money, acted as a dictator over them in his Ashram, and even molested some of the females. His Ashram poisoned the public in Oregon by deliberately contaminating salad bars with a liquid containing Salmonella, resulting in over 700 documented cases of acute food poisoning.  He was a grotesque caricature of an evil villain of a guru. In fiction he would be seen as too unrealistic to be believable, yet in real life he is accepted as genuine. THAT is a miracle!”

Osho the fake guru for the rich only, full of shit
Charity for the richest! [graphic by EK]

When it came to enlightenment, Osho was a “no show”.

Let me get this out of the way right quick – spirituality for the rich only is like a diet for the thin only. This doesn’t mean that the rich are spiritual, far from it, but just that they are much less likely to need a way out of suffering when they are being pampered in a life of luxury. The Buddha didn’t seek a way out of suffering for humankind until after he left his father’s palace grounds. Osho offers relief only to those who reside within the equivalent of today’s palace grounds, and who are just looking for a placebo to assuage their guilty consciences. Deep down, they know they have far more than they need while others truly suffer, and they seek even more, and at the expense of others. Who better to help them self-delude than a guru who does the same thing: exults in ridiculous luxury while demanding his followers live a meager existence.


Osho is a whopping cliché, and that of the worst possible, most corrupt guru. His picture is essentially in the encyclopedia next to the definition of fake guru. You can find a lengthy examination of him and his crimes in Wikipedia.

Imagine that you honestly wanted to become a better person, and traveled off to an ashram to meditate and seek spirituality. What kinds of deeds might a guru do to thoroughly put you off and shake any confidence you might have that he’s a real saint? How about he has sex with his young female seekers, and boasts of having had hundreds of them? How about he demands his followers give him large amounts of money, often their life savings, and he uses it to buy a fleet of Rolls Royces and other outlandish luxuries for himself? This is all well documented, and anyone can find out about it simply by visiting Wikipedia.

Do you still think he’s an enlightened saint, like the Buddha or Christ?

  • He claims he can perform miracles, but it is beneath himself to do so?
  • Claims to have been reincarnated many times and to have had an illustrious past as a series of enlightened masters.
  • Takes sleeping pills, Valium, and  heroic doses of nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
  • Praises Hitler and denounces Gandhi.
  • Loves and praises money.
  • Looks down upon the poor and discriminates against them.
  • Is openly homophobic.
  • His ashram in Oregon orchestrated a bio-terror attack by deliberately spreading poison in salad bars to effect county elections.
  • His ashram plotted to assassinate politicians in Oregon who got in its way.
  • Some of his books were written for him by others.
  • His material was largely taken from other sources.

Osho and 90 Rolls Rorces. Rich Guru.
Just some of Osho’s Rolls Royce collection. [graphic by me]
Osho is not even his real name. He was born Chandra Mohan Jain, then he renamed himself Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, and finally resurrected himself as Osho in 1989. People are entranced by the name OSHO. It sounds like a mantra, or meditative breathing. It sounds ZEN, and like “ocean”. So hypnotized by him are people that his books adorn the shelves of international youth hostels around the world (I saw one in a restaurant a couple weeks ago). People blithely share his quotes on facebook, and don’t know that he boasted having 90 Rolls Royces.

Here, look at him bragging about them in this video (at 2 minutes and 24 seconds):

And what’s with that getup? He looks like he’s not just “the rich man’s guru” but also “the Ashtar Galactic Command’s guru”. Is that his $1,000,000 watch?

Osho is lying in this video about his Rolls Royces. He says his people, followers, or “sanyasins” want him to have 360 Rolls Royces. It’s Osho who wants them for himself. When he had his commune in Oregon “Rajneeshpuram”, he pressured his staff to secure more Rolls Royces because he wanted to break the record for how many anyone had. This was costing his commune $200,000 per month. Meanwhile, much of this money was coming from his followers, many of whom sold off all of their worldly possession and donated all of their wealth to Rajneeshpuram. The guru also wanted a million dollar watch to wear, and told his second in command to divert money from the commune’s needs, if necessary, to secure this luxury for himself.


People don’t know that he said, “as a homosexual, you are not even a human being.” They don’t know his statement, “living in poverty is far more dangerous, far more suffering than dying in a beautifully, scientifically managed gas chamber in Germany. Within a second you are smoke, holy smoke, rather than suffering for millions of years. They don’t know that he called himself, “the rich man’s guru” and said “the beggar can not come to me.” Not only is Osho a fraud, he’s an obvious one who has taken himself way out on a limb and made a complete fool of himself. A preacher of antisemitism and homophobia is not enlightened in any sense of the word, and that’s just scratching the surface of his legacy of mammoth egotism and opportunism.

Osho is the inverse of enlightened. He’s a megalomaniac. Nevertheless, and despite his having died over 20 years ago, his fan page on Facebook has over 1,800,000 followers, and over 1,400 people use his “quote + photo” app per month on Facebook. When you quote OSHO, you are unwittingly announcing you are one of the duped.

OSHO is a business, and the customers are being suckered.

Quote your favorite megalomaniacal, homophobic, classist, and antisemitic guru.

Nisargadatta Maharaj didn’t own a luxury automobile, and he gave free talks in his home. Ramana Maharshi had a squirrel. What need does a guru have for luxury? If he is as happy with a stone as with a throne, he’s not going to bother about a throne, let alone 90 of them.

True gurus have no need or desire for Rolls Royces, luxury in general, or fashionable intergalactic garb. They are humble and selfless. Note: public Facebook pages for these two gurus combined have 11% as many followers as OSHO. [graphic by EK]
So, when someone asked me what I thought about Osho, I said, “Osho?! Oh shit!”

Osho caricature with his 90 Rolls Royces. Fake, fraud, imposter Guru. Rich man's guru
Caricature of OSHO by Eric Kuns.

Defenders of OSHO, of which there are many (I wonder how many of them are invested in the business of OSHO) will try to sideline his more outrageously offensive and inhumane statements, but they stand as a testament to his delusional personality, the gaping holes in his education, and a radical departure from reality. And, no, what he says isn’t any less ridiculous “in context”. Here are some more choice quotes:

“Do you want me to support AIDS. Supporting homosexuality means exactly that – supporting AIDS.” ~ OSHO.

Wow! Homosexuality = AIDS. Is this guy a guru or a knee-jerk conservative radio talk show host? He says that he “condemns homosexuality” because it is “unnatural.” Talk about compassion and empathy. If you got AIDS, it was because you were a pervert. I’m not putting words in his mouth, he claimed that “Walt Whitman is the only American to talk of these heights, but he also missed. He missed when he was just on the verge, he was hindered by his homosexuality,” and “Homosexuality is a perversion, a perversion of one’s own body chemistry.” Just for the gay followers of Osho, it’s time to reject him as he rejects you.

“In fact, a man shaving his beard looks like a woman — it is ugly. As far as women are concerned, they love beards. You can ask my women here. A man without a beard and a mustache is just half man.” ~ OSHO


Whack job.


OSHO: Morally, he was as moral as Mahatma Gandhi.


OSHO: Yes, because I consider both absolutely immoral. In fact, he was more a Hindu than Mahatma Gandhi himself…

Hitler is a better Hindu than Gandhi. Fantastic! If you were poor (not rich), Jewish, or gay, Osho had no time for you and/or condemned you outright. So, before you start wearing OSHO on your lapel, find out a little about who the guy really was. Osho was probably short for “OSHOLE”.

Aside from Osho’s own statements, preserved in self-damning videos, his commune in Oregon, which he tried to build into a city, was guilty of poisoning the local community, arson, and attempts to murder local officials who stood in the way of establishing and expanding the commune. These murder plots included poison, and even gunning down the U.S. Attorney for Oregon. Some like to say that Osho (then going by the name Rahjneesh) didn’t know what was going on in his own commune, but he has been recorded in one meeting concerning radical tactics to preserve the commune as saying, “if 10,000 have to die to save one enlightened master, so be it”.

He also had massive troubles with the law (cause he was above it).

Finally, If it isn’t painfully obvious why you can’t have a fabulously wealthy guru with 90 Rolls Royces, who claims to be only for a rich audience, I can clear this up. Let’s just go back to the one guy that, if anyone, was really enlightened = the Buddha. He grew up, so they say, in a kind of palace, and was completely sheltered from the rough world outside. When he finally did venture out he was so struck by poverty, aging, illness, and vulnerability/mortality in general, that he needed to find a way out. Suffering, he saw, was inevitable. But there must be a way to not simply be crushed. So he sought a way to overcome the suffering of the world, and this led him to test himself and undergo self-deprivation before finally finding his middle-way path. So, for the sake of argument, let’s just agree that there is such a thing as enlightenment. The people who need it most are those who are actually suffering and/or most at risk.


The enlightened person, so it is claimed, accepts reality as it unfolds without resistance, and has no preference or need for luxury. This ability to completely accept whatever comes is how he or she overcomes suffering. One is no longer a separate individual in a hostile world and vulnerable to devastation from outside. As an indivisible part of the whole of reality, one no longer views the eventual tragic circumstances we all must face as separate or alien. Since the individual is an illusion, he cannot be destroyed. The entirety remains. So goes the philosophy.

Universe-within-a-personIf the path of enlightenment is the way to overcome suffering in this world, indulging in luxuries doesn’t really show either a capacity to deal with real suffering, or a lack of preference for pleasure. Osho does the equivalent of showing that the way to overcome alcohol addiction is to drink oneself to death. The guru who needs to break the world record for Roll’s Royce ownership, sacrifices his followers’ basic needs to adorn himself with a million dollar watch, and thinks the lives of tens of thousands are not worth as much as his own, is not enlightened, but megalomaniacally rooted in the nether recesses of the selfish ego. If enlightenment is a possibility, and there are or ever were real enlightened people or saints, Osho helps shatter any confidence that any of that may be real. He does, however, appeal to a certain brand of person who likes to think of himself as enlightened, but also absolved of any sin or crime, no matter how selfish, cruel, or petty, because he transcends the Earthly, terrestrial morality and law.


To those that worship Osho, and think he’s merely being provocative and that it takes countless lives to understand him, I suggest you find a new guru. There is a miracle surrounding the name of Osho, and it is that so many are still purchasing Osho products.

If you’ve read this far, and are about to post an angry and insulting comment, consider why you want to defend Osho and attack us for criticizing him. Is it because you think he is an enlightened being and a great spiritual teacher, and thus can do no wrong, and therefore everything he does must be valid and useful for some reason beyond the morality and rational understanding of normal mortals? We see it the other way around. Because of his bad actions, selfishness, egotism, and lack of self control, he cannot be a great spiritual teacher. But he was smart to realize that people worship celebrity, royalty, and divinity. If he could persuade people that he was intrinsically different, than he would be above all criticism. This is a common technique, and why the fake gurus often employ cheap magic tricks, such as when Sai Baba would materialize gold watches to give to his followers. Osho is a huckster selling snake oil to gullible yokels who want to believe a miracle.

  1. You completely missed the point. Osho is saying that you can’t preach spirituality to someone who’s hungry. They need food, not God. He’s not saying to run after money. He’s saying don’t run after it OR avoid it. Either way you are a slave.

    And seconded – nothing about this post came off as funny, or in any way enlightening. Thanks anyway.

  2. Let the others do what they want to do even those weak naive Osho followers who believe with this so called Guru they can find themselves. You are an individual and your best friend is yourself thus you can only find yourself with yourself and not the Osho Profit Industry. Also Osho’s statements about relationships & love are so ridiculous especially when he describes this as a temporary dance. If you really love yourself you find and love your Partner forever. My Ex Boyfriend is also a Osho Follower and went of with a naive Osho Follower Girl by saying to me that he might dance with me in the future again on a deeper level. Certainly I do not want such a fool back. I wish all Osho Followers Good Luck though.

I’ve heard him say that he doesn’t care if people forget him. He said everything must end or keep changing. He is the only hope for moksh right now.


    1. “When he says god only listens to rich people, he means that all that people are made as kings by the god and not as beggars.”

      No he doesn’t. Watch the video. He says they beggars can’t come to him because they are not sophisticated or refined enough. He says he is the rich man’s guru. He does NOT say that all men are kings, and thus there are no beggars. He specifically addresses the poor as an extant group of people who are not elevated enough to be worth his trouble (not rich enough). He is not the only hope of anyone, but rather an awful impediment.

    1. If you are a multi-millionaire guru, you most assuredly are NOT unlucky. If you are any kind of multi-millionaire you are among the the slimmest margin of the wealthiest who have ever lived among us. The word you are looking for is not “unlucky” but “corrupt”. Osho was corrupt, and you can’t be enlightened and corrupt in the most worldly, material, and egotistical ways at the same time. In other words, you can’t be selfless and a megalomaniac, as much as that might appeal to rich patrons of rich gurus. In the end it’s all fraud.

    So…great job , your article helped reveal some pretty big flaws!

    I tend to prefer the ideas/teachings of a Ramana Maharsi (or a Krishnamurti) a hundred times over the soup osho serves

    1. Thanks. My favorite is Nisargadatta Maharaj, who, like Ramana Maharshi, teaches Advaita Vedanta, which is the same think Eckhart Tolle teaches, but watered down and derivative.


  7. You who wrote this article, you are an idiot! Osho was great enlightened master, if you are bit more intelligent you would recognize that. Don’t vomit your poison on others.


      1. I happened across a facebook quote of Osho today. And felt a need to query him online. To which I came across your article.
        First, you are spot on with the logic you follow about criticizing him. Thank you.
        I remember stories about him in his oregon center and just could not imagine thinking of him as anything but a twisted, partially enlightened criminal.

        I read some of his concepts online and came to the conclusion that he probably was not utilizing the power of his god self because it didn’t sound like he had a firm grasp of the experience of his higher self. For example, saying positive thinking did more harm than good. Really?

        Second, I am amazed people can look at his picture and not feel bad. his psychic energy is dreadful and this might be due to many reasons, never the less, all loving enlightened masters I’ve ever seen gave off a lovely radiance that made you glad to be around them. His energy makes me want to run.

        I wish people had the discernment and insight to make better choices about the teachings and teachers they chose to gravitate towards.

        You can read any of a dozen spiritual books, such as a course in miracles, the Bhagavad gita, or Patanjali’sYoga Sutras and compare the teachings to see if they fit with what sounds true. There are enough holes in Osho’s logic and interpretation of truth to make you question the amount of time spent on him.

      2. Yes, and the thing that surprises me about those who defend him is that his effect on me is to cast serious doubt on all gurus, enlightenment, and Eastern mysticism/spirituality/wisdom traditions. It’s a bit like the pedophile priests. Doesn’t make me wanna’ go to church to get wisdom or direction. No thanks.

        And, I actually agree with you, though it’s only an impression, that Osho strikes me as, well, sinister. He like to hiss his “s” sounds, and he’s practiced not blinking for effect.

        The guru I like the most is Nisargadatta Maharaj. Is he really enlightened? I don’t know, but I do really like his message and his arguments. “I AM THAT” is my favorite spiritual text. Maharaj lived simply and gave lectures for free in his home. Echkart Tolle, who is a watered down, New Age disseminator of Advaita, charges for his videos and texts, and more importantly for his getaways for rich folk.

        If one really is enlightened, he or she doesn’t really need a lot of money at all. If you need money, than, it’s pretty obvious, your ain’t high on life, so to speak.

  8. Osho’s Rolls Royces

    Why do you like your Rolls Royces so much?

    I have tried all kinds of cars; and even Rolls Royce has many types and I have tried them too. Their best is the Corniche, but it doesn’t suit me. It is a question of my back. I need a certain kind of chair—I use only this chair. It has been made by my sannyasins exactly to give support to my back, because doctors have said that they cannot do anything more.
    Experts from England were called to India. They tried hard, and they said, “It is impossible. You will have to live with it.” It was just a coincidence that one of the models of Rolls Royce, Silver Spur, suited me. The driver’s seat in that car fits perfectly, gives me no trouble. Naturally, my people love….
    They don’t belong to me, those cars—nothing belongs to me. I am the poorest man in the whole world, living the richest life possible. My people love me; they want to do something for me. All those cars belong to the commune. They have made them available to me for one hour each day. I don’t know which car they are bringing, but one thing is certain, that I can be comfortable only in a Silver Spur. And they love me so much that they are trying to have three hundred and sixty-five Rolls Royces, one for every day. And I say, “Why not? A great idea!”…
    They have arranged ninety Rolls Royces, and I know they will be able to manage three hundred and sixty-five. last210

    People are very much interested in your Rolls Royces. What do You want to prove with this, so many cars and so much luxury around You?
    Why are people concerned? Then certainly they need it; then more Rolls Royces will be here. Until they stop asking me, more and more Rolls Royces are going to be here. Now it has to be seen that it is a challenge: the day nobody asks me about Rolls Royces, they will not be coming.
    People’s interest in Rolls Royces shows their mind. They are not interested what is happening here. They don’t ask about meditation, they don’t ask about sannyas, they don’t ask about people’s life, love, the laughter that happens in this desert. They only ask about Rolls Royces. That means I have touched some painful nerve. And I will go on pressing it till they stop asking.
    I am not a worshipper of poverty. That’s what those Rolls Royces prove. I respect wealth. Nobody before me had the guts to say it. The pope cannot say that he respects wealth, although he is the wealthiest man on the earth.
    I am not a hypocrite. I am the poorest man on the earth. I don’t have a single cent with me. But I want to show these people what attracts their mind. If there were no Rolls Royces here, perhaps there would be nothing for the whole world ask about me, about you, about meditation, about initiation into sannyas, about love, about anything. It is for those idiots that I am keeping all those Rolls Royces, because they cannot move their eyes away from those Rolls Royces. And meanwhile I will go on pouring other things in their minds. Without those Rolls Royces they would not have asked a single question.
    Those Rolls Royces are doing their work. Every idiot around the world is interested in them. And I want them to be somehow interested—in anything in Rajneeshpuram. Then we will manage about other things.
    So tell those people—when anybody asks, tell them that “These Rolls Royces are for you idiots. Otherwise you are not interested in anything.” Once they stop asking about Rolls Royces, then I will have to think of something else, whether to have rockets which are going to the moon…. I will have to think of something else. last403

    I received a letter from a bishop of Wasco County, who had been for almost five years condemning my Rolls Royces. In every Sunday sermon he was not preaching Jesus Christ, he was preaching me and my Rolls Royces. The day I was leaving he wrote a letter to me, “Now you are leaving, it will be great kindness on your part if you can donate one Rolls Royce to this church.” Now, this shows the man….
    I informed him, “Would you like all ninety-three, or only one?”
    And a letter came, “If you can give all ninety-three, that is just the right thing. You are really great. I’m very sorry that I condemned you for five years. You are a man to be worshiped.”
    It is a very strange world if you understand people: whatever they are saying shows more about them than it shows about the person they are talking about. pilgr12

    Just the other day Anando was showing me one book published against me in Australia by a couple who have been sannyasins for three years and have been in the commune. But just looking at their ideas, it seems they have never seen me. They are saying that they were working, working hard, and with their work I was purchasing Rolls Royces. You can see the absurdity: their work was not bringing any money. Their work was making their own houses to live in, the roads—which were needing money, not producing money. But in their mind—and for all those three years also—they must have been resentful.
    Those Rolls Royces were not produced by the commune. They were presents from outside, from all over the world. And I was not their owner—I had given them to the commune. They were commune property, and I have not brought any of them with me; I have left them with the commune. Everything that I had has been left with the commune. I never owned anything. But there must have been the idea that they are earning money, and I am wasting money. That is their resentment.
    What money were you earning? In fact you needed money to make houses, to make roads, to make a dam—a dam needed two and a half million dollars to make. You were contributing your labor, but we were not creating money out of it so that I could purchase Rolls Royces, so that I could purchase anything. I have not purchased anything from the money produced by the commune because the commune never produced any money. The commune was absorbing money.
    In fact all my royalties, all my books, all their profits were going to the commune. The situation is just the opposite—that I had given everything to the commune. Now, four hundred books in different languages were bringing millions of dollars in royalties, and those royalties were going to the commune.
    If I had wanted to purchase Roll Royces, I could have purchased my own Rolls Royces, as many as I wanted, just out of my royalties.
    But the resentment, the anger, is blind. In the commune we invested two hundred million dollars. Those sannyasins perhaps think they had brought two hundred million dollars there! Without me and the people who love me around the world, those two hundred million dollars would not have been possible.

    1. Sheer bullshit. How many people have bad backs and just use cushions or are perfectly fine with whatever car. And, what about his million dollars watches. Um, are those the only ones that, er, alleviate his arthritis?! You can’t be dumb enough to believe that mountain of bullshit.

      I am more enlightened than OSHO, and I’m not enlightened. First off, Nisargadatta Maharaj gave lectures for free in his home, and people from all over the world came to hear them. No Roll Royces at all. But people were interested in enlightenment, meditation, the truth, a greater understanding, transcendence, what have you. And this includes me. I’ve bought and read several of the books which are transcriptions of Maharaj’s talks. Also Ramana Maharshi, Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, Alan Watts, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche (I went to a two day meditation seminar by him and practiced the techniques I learned), and others. I did a 10 day meditation retreat in a temple in Thailand, meditating on the floor 6 hours a day. No Rolls Royces necessary.

      If you are enlightened, you don’t need luxuries and you don’t need a different car every day with a specific seat to drive you around your compound so people can worship you. That is for megalomaniacs. You don’t need to examine the chakras in the vaginas of your disciples. You accept reality as it is, without preference.

      If you are enlightened, you don’t need anything.

      OSHO is a liar, a scoundrel, a cheat, and a fraud. Those who insist on following him want to make excuses for megalomania, and to convince themselves they can be enlightened while also being selfish. Fuck Osho. If he is more spiritual than I am, than I am happy to die on the spot. FUCK OSHO. He is a menace and cruel individual.

      Oh, and his stuff about how he doesn’t have a penny or “civit” while owning all those cars and watches and luxuries is like a pedophile priest saying, “I am the most celebate person in the world”.

      The worst thing about OSHO is that he destroys people’s faith, or curiosity, or interest in Eastern philosophy, or the possibility of enlightenment. And that is his effect on me. He is another FAKE guru whose spirit is smaller than mine, proving that enlightenment is a fantasy and a business of selling snake oil. I still half believe in Maharaj and a couple others, but OSHO has made me really question them.

      And if you believe in his spiritual power. I throw down this challenge. If he has a greater spirit than me let me die during my sleep tonight. I wish it. I welcome it. C’mon OSHO, show me what you got. Let’s go toe-to-toe in the spiritual octogon. I dare you. You coward.

  11. “Capitalism is not an ideology; it is not imposed on the society, it is a natural growth.” Osho

    I have to agree with you Eric. The man was a fraud. Real spirituality is not based personal, cancerous growth. Truth is within not by the authority of any guru. In the following is only conformity.


      1. It is always due to mental security that one clings to any idea or idol conclusively be it an ideology, religion, political or a guru. It is all conditioned thought at the core. When one’s security is threatened then one initiates anger in response. Authenticity does not require a teacher. Confusion is not dispelled by following another. We all want that peace inside while we create walls between us bound by thought. I seek no enemies here. I say what I feel is true and I don’t expect anything less from you Omega. Be what you are. You do have a very nice Website here Eric. The art is quite unique.

      2. Cheers. I also agree with your general sentiments expressed in your comment, not that it matters really if I agree or not as you trust in your internal compass, as you should.


      3. I wish you could understand him , At first I also thought that his is not good but his teachings have made my life really happy and made me a better person . I am not against your thought because you have right to tell your thoughts but first understand him with free heart and don’t judge the first thing directly, you have taken his one or two statement from his speech but they are in complete

      4. Glad you like Meese and get something out of his philosophy. I liked some of his paintings at first, and then I saw a bunch that seemed slipshod and ugly. He hasn’t won me back over, and, like I said, it’s almost impossible to tell if he’s joking or not. But, not everyone likes the same art or music, and if you like it, than more enjoyment for you. I’m cool with that.


  12. These comments are absolutely priceless! I don’t have the best memory, but I had looked up Osho before when his name was floating around. And I was mortified by what I found. And yet, years later, I still see his books EVERYWHERE. Sometime during this period, I had forgotten the extent of his harm. I had convinced myself that he was just your typical New Agey charlatan. How else to reconcile that thought with his massive popularity?

    1. Yes, and I don’t know why people still follow or believe in him. Honestly, as I said somewhere, and more than once, people like OSHO destroy any confidence I have that enlightenment is real, as do all the self-deluded people online that have convinced themselves that they too are enlightened. Eckhart Tolle says that HE is enlightened, but I’m not buying it especially because he’s selling it and making a mint off of it (that, and everything he says was said before, and better, by Nisagadatta Maharaj, who he has acknowledge ripping off somewhere).

      What is the evidence someone is enlightened? What good goes it do for them or anyone else? Somehow, buying 90 Rolls Royces isn’t a “good” I can get behind.

  13. Wow, the comments from Osho fanboys are pretty stunning. No matter what he said, they’ll find a way to interpret it so it says what they want it to say. Osho was smart, I’ll give him that. He understood how to say lots of random words without saying anything truly specific or linear enough to be able to state what exactly he believed. it makes it even easier for his fans to project their desires and dreams onto what he said instead of really investigating his work and life as a whole.
    Actually.. this has just given me insight into the fanboys of Jordan Peterson. There is something quite similar. Hhmmm..

    1. I’d hardly put Jordan Peterson in the same category as OSHO, though. On the other hand, I can’t speak for his fans. Some people may just like him blindly because he stands up to social justice warriors. But people are having a really, really hard time taking him down, and they are trying in one hit piece after another. He’s a clinical psychologist and veteran teacher who believes in objectivity. Sure, he’s on the conservative end of the spectrum, but he’s not an opportunistic predator like OSHO, not sleeping with his students, not deliberately misleading people.


  14. A blog full of misinformation about Osho 🙂 What’s nice, dear friend, is Osho has enough literature and Video content (a few terra bytes) all over the internet; for example ‘s download section has over 500GB of Video Content. You can lie as much as you like, the reality is recorded on tape and everyone who wants can go and see for himself what Osho is really about.

    Keep on lying, you’re not doing any harm to anybody, Those who choose to believe the lies instead of researching, need people like you. It’s a mutual psychological supplydemand game.

    You haven’t even understood the name Osho. You don’t seem to understand even the most basic things. Shouting around random four letter words is not a criticism at all, what you’ve written here is not an objective presentation, it’s not even an informed opinion. It’s a subjective presentation, about yourself.

    You should feel proud, what a beautiful article you’ve written about yourself! You have a mirror now to look at and see how you really are. :)) 🙂 🙂 🙂

    You haven’t written anything about Osho. You haven’t even studied him, so how can you write about him? You can only write about yourself and about your imagination about a purely fictional character you’ve created in your mind. Make him a “bad” guy without bothering to read his books or at least 0.0001% of the books he read in his youth, and then feel good about yourself, that you’re the “good” and “smart” guy. Now, isn’t that brilliance?

    Please write more such brilliant articles about yourself, they will help you make the mirror more clear.


    1. The blog is not devoted to OSHO, nimrod. There are only a few articles about him from around 5 years ago out of over 500 articles.

      Besides which, he’s a fraud and you are a gullible, fawning, tool. Go read a real guru, like Nisargadatta Maharaj, if you are interested in enlightenment.

      Problem is that I see OSHO too clearly, and it’s not a pretty sight at all. He’s a snake oil salesman, and you are holding a bottle in your hand wishing it’s real.


    2. “A blog full of misinformation about Osho”

      Using direct quotations (primary source material I might add), and not taking anything out of context is misinformation now? Look up the meaning of that word because you’re using it wrong.

      I used to find Osho’s monologues somewhat interesting but never delved much into his talks, if I had I’d have found the garbage he spewed that’s revealed here. I knew about the Rolls Royces and I heard some of the rumors about his personal behaviors but didn’t look into it until recently because before I started using my fucking brain like an adult, I’d just chalked it all up as him being eccentric. OSHO is a FRAUD and a CON-ARTIST, no different from so many shysters and phonies that have come before him who talk about God and have a way with words. The only people that still follow his bullshit do it out of either some financial incentive and/or truth and honesty have no meaning to them.

      1. Forgot to mention: There’s a Netflix documentary that came out last year called “Wild Wild Country”, this documentary shows the REAL Osho. People like him, they’re no different from the slave owners in the Jim Crow south who used “God” to justify their inhumanity towards other human beings. I am not an atheist, nor am I religious. It’s sickening seeing people like these, using “God” or “spirituality” as a means of concealing their evil.

    1. Face plant!

      No. He’s got a laundry list of bad characteristics. Those are just the most outrageous, and we’re not talking sex, we’re talking about taking advantage of female devotees.

      That’s only half the problem. The other half is there’s nothing to indicate he is enlightened. You might as well say, if it weren’t for his ostentatious Rolls collection, would you consider him the world heavyweight champion at boxing?

      The dude is kinda’ sinister, the way he hisses his s sounds and has cultivated not blinking. He’s a nasty sort of fraud.

      Can’t quite fathom why people so desperately need to believe OSHO is enlightened, when there are much more persuasive gurus out there (though I’m not really sure any of them really are enlightened).


  15. I didnt know Osho that much. I read your article and said myself osho is a scammer but then i aread his response about his actions afterward that you haven’t mentioned here.
    And conclusion for me is he’s not a fraud. He just see the things from a different perspective that cant be seen by everyone.
    Here is some of words:
    “There was no need for ninety-six Rolls Royces. I could not use ninety-six Rolls Royces simultaneously – the same model, the same car. But I wanted to make it clear to you that you would be ready to drop all your desires for truth, for love, for spiritual growth to have a Rolls Royce. I was knowingly creating a situation in which you would feel jealous.”

    “The function of a master is very strange. He has to help you come to an understanding of your inner structure of consciousness: it is full of jealousy.”

    “…Those cars fulfilled their purpose. They created jealousy in the whole of America, in all the super-rich people. If they were intelligent enough, then rather than being my enemies they would have come to me to find a way to get rid of their jealousy, because it is their problem. Jealousy is a fire that burns you, and burns you badly.” (Beyond Psychology)

    “Everything that I have done in my life has a purpose. It is a device to bring out something in you of which you are not aware.” …Osho


    1. His justification, however, is utter tripe. I’m NOT jealous that he had 90 Rolls Royces, or even one, therefore I learn nothing about jealousy from him. He also wanted a millions dollar watch. It is typical of corrupt gurus that they live in opulence, and make any and all excuse for it, such as that normal mortals can’t understand their superior way of being.

      Rather than try to trigger jealous people, why not just set a good example? What is the message we should take away? What do we really learn?

      He merely perpetuates the notion that people need luxury. Why don’t yo look up Nisargadatta Maharaj, or Ramana Maharshi? When you are truly enlightened, you don’t need superficial luxuries to make you happy, you just are happy.

      OSHO was a fraud, a user, and a blight on the spiritual quest. FUCK OSHO!


  16. “Osho’s followers are unhinged and deranged” when you’re the one saying “Fuck Osho”.

    You don’t even believe in enlightenment so how can you differentiate between an enlightened and a non enlightened person?

    How can Osho be so influential upon you that he’s making you disbelieve in spirituality? Are you so affected by one “fraudster” out of so many more? Is your spirituality so weak that it can be destroyed by one man? Do you know anything about spirituality which you’ve experienced? Then you don’t need anyone else’s support.

    Spirituality is based on an inner feeling. If you’re looking at a person and judging him by his clothes, his watch, his car, the way he speaks and not by his being, his presence, his vibe then you will never understand anyone.

    Spirituality is not charity. Nothing in this world is for free, and if you’re not willing to pay for growth, whether in terms of money or your ego, then you will never attain anything. We have to work for everything.

    But I suppose we are God’s gift to this world so all our actions are heavenly.

    Why do you think Osho would bother with a pesky insect like you who’s trapped in his own illusion and keeps reaffirming his own ideologies?

    I don’t believe in being holier than thou. And you are asking for conflict by posting this, how much traffic does this single page get you in comparison to the rest of your site?

    I’m afraid Osho won’t fulfil your demand for death as you were never alive.



    1. “Why do you think Osho would bother with a pesky insect like you who’s trapped in his own illusion and keeps reaffirming his own ideologies?”

      You are the pesky insect and I’m not going to bother with you.


    1. I can see for myself that OSHO is a fraud. Probably, having a PhD in Eastern Philosophy, Rajneesh could spout classic advaita, which is what Nisargadatta Maharaj practiced. So, Rahneesh said the right things, and Nisargadatta assumed he actually “realized” them, and wasn’t just regurgitating them. I’m not even sure Maharaj is the real deal. He just doesn’t have some of the red flags that the frauds usually have, and which OSHO has in spades. It’s easy to fake being a guru. I guess it’s harder to not be duped by a fake, and you are living proof.

      I mean, c’mon, you fall for that, “My people will give me 99 Rolls Royces” crap?! He’s not just a fraud, he’s a sinister one. Nasty business, and a humiliating blight on Eastern Philsophy. Maharah praising Rajneesh doesn’t elevate Rajneesh, or his more comical rebirth as OSHO. It merely casts doubt on Maharaj and enlightenment.

      What appealed to me about Nisargadatta is his philosophical ideas, which made sense to me, and I think there’s a lot of truth in them. Rajneesh went off into cuckoo land, and while he could paraphrase classic Hinduism very well when he chose, he peppered it with his own gibberish and gobbledygook. It’s an embarrassment.

      And then he became a megalomaniac.

      These days I’m more into the Stoics when it comes to philosophy, or Zen Buddhism. It’s the philosophy itself that’s important, not the person who repeats it.


      1. Nisargadatta ‘assumed’ that he was actually realised?.. seriously? ‘assumed’?
        Why didn’t he say so?, That “I ‘assume’ rajneesh is tremendous…. I assume he is a great sage”?


        Read it again👇

        It will act as real salt on your pseudo wound😂🤣

        And you better find some different ideal saint of yours other than Shri. Nisargadatta, because it is pretty clear what he meant about Osho..🤣😂
        Shri. Nisargadatta gave someone a good trip🔥🔥🔥🔥😅


      2. You don’t get it. I’m only 50% sure Maharaj is legit, or that enlightenment really exists. I have no role models. I have no guru. I have to do it on my own. And I am 99% sure OSHO is a fraud. OK, 100% sure. As I said before, all you’ve succeeded in doing in casting doubt on Maharaj. OSHO effectively poisoned living gurus in the same way pedophile preasts poisoned faith in the church. He’s a sinister fraud and megalomaniac. You need to do some work to find out why you are attracted to him. I don’t have time for that kind of fake shit. I have a life to life.


  17. I think I came to know about meditation and spirituality by Osho’s talk only. So I give him credit for igniting something in me. Personally I think he got carried away when he came in to contact with people from out of India. “Mind a beautiful servant but a very dangerous master” Osho quoted this (not sure if this was his original) but it turned out he never really understood his own quote. Only if he had followed his heart and not mind things might have ended on positivity or at least he wouldn’t be considered a fraud today. (pardon my writing capacity)

  18. By the way I think enlightenment itself might be just a fraud as other gurus, that is what I am learning after my own journey. Next I am going to study U. G. Krishnamurti.

  19. You are doing what exactly Osho wants. Love him or hate him but don’t ignore him. Negativity spreads faster. Try harder bro. You are also earning something by writing negative about him. Good 👍.
    My views: May be you are a Christian and got triggered when Osho said that Jesus is a bastard son of God and God is a rapists as he impregnate Marry without her consent.
