Re: Hair Cutting Days

I use a calendar I bought online because I like the pictures. I stopped being a pretend Tibetan about the same time that I reverted to my birth name. Its all just more stuff to clear away. Using the Tibetan lunar calendar is "pretending to be tibetan"? Well, I look at the Tibetan lunar calendar to ...

I am sure Osho knew about the plot.

I'm not so sure and it also depends on what you mean by "knew about". I just read through the Wiki article about this and it doesn't seem very clear on this point. It is a fact that he wasn't prosecuted for anything related to the incident.

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

Yeah, well... At least CTR didn't try to poison a whole county... As a point of information, I believe Sheela only tried to poison a whole city, namely The Dalles. To further split hairs: they were not sprinkling datura, belladonna, ricin or arsenic on salad bars... they were sprinkling salmonella....

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

For the sake of honesty, I should add that it took me nearly as long to recover from some of the inner dynamics of CTR's set up. The nature of the teachings received was not the same however.

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

Well one of my closest friends was on the council that ran 'Rajneeshpuram' which was the name temporarily adopted by them for the town of Antelope ... As a point of information, I believe that Rajneeshpuram and Antelope were diferent cities. What happened was that the Rajneeshees basically took ove...

People. I think we have solved the "preliminaries" issue. It is off-topic anyway, so back to the topic please.

Apparently not.

Maybe if we tried 'Post-DI-minaries' ?


Now you're just being ri-DI-culous.

Re: Meditate and grow your ego

For us ordinary people I can only say: we all try our best. Everyone has a different background. Sometimes I think that the real siddhi is to be compassionate and modest. I certainly am far from that. Exactly what I keep hearing from my teachers. From Matthieu Ricard's foreword to "Turning Confusio...

Re: Meditate and grow your ego

Speaking of "Alpha Males", try doing a search for PUA and meditation. You might find it amusing. :smile: Funny, but illustrative. The idea of "meditation" as it is used in the article and in the culture of preying on women is precisely why the original article about mediation and ego is meaningless...

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

It's been a while since I looked at it but if I recall correctly, some of that Rajneesh stuff is very well spoken. Your memory is failing you. DJKR quotes him. I love the guy. Not saying I’m into his teachings. But he’s a hero. OR got what it deserved. Yes, DJKR seems to be quite fond of him. I've ...

Finally, and this is simple logic, if a so-called teacher exhibits anger, arrogance, greed, etc. why should I respect him? In what way is he better than a common fool?

I daresay one can occasionally see such behavior on this very forum.

No no no - 'Preluminaries' ;)

You know, I actually considered that but I decided that 'postliminaries' would be more annoying.
Yes, I guessed it was a wind-up. :)

Aye.
