What do you think of Osho?

I met a wonderful woman, and she introduced me to Osho's books.

I've been looking for some spiritual starting point, and I think I may have found it. He writes clearly and simply, and so far, I agree with everything he says.

Right now, I am reading "A rose is a rose is a rose".

What is your opinion of him?

If your girlfriend is pursuing orgasm in bed, then I'm not sure she's following Osho's advice. It's easy to make this error because he doesn't confront people's assumptions about orgasm with a lot of pesky neurochemistry suggesting that it shifts perception between partners - and between us and the Divine. Wink He merely says, "Orgasm is not necessary."

However, he thought meditation was ultimately the way back to God, not union. "Reuniting" explores the path of union as a way to create a deep sense of wholeness that makes alignment with the Divine possible.

That said, certainly Osho's teachings are beautiful. For some of his early history, have a look at this (long) article by Michael Winn: http://www.reuniting.info/wisdom/quest_for_spiritual_orgasm_winn
