To me one key is the way Osho exposed Gautama’s buddhism as creating nazism, or ur-nazism…the evidence is not legal, but I think the reality is grim, a genuine esoteric leak, and Osho just said. Fuck it, this buddha game is corrupt and has become evil, I will sink it in a final Grand Fart…

I am not an Osho/Rajneesh apologist, but I have to put a warning next to these debunkings of Osho. I have read most of them, long ago, and have found them to be unable to get to the truth of the matter. They are right, perhaps, in their confusions: the Osho image has perverted its possible future…

Comparing Osho to Gurdjieff, Krishnamurti, Gautama, Shankara, etc… doesn’t work. Osho may have been chaos on wheels, but he was not ‘evil’ in the way that Gurdjieff was, or his imitator EJ Gold. He may have induced chaos in people, but he did not turn them into demons. He was not a hindu chauvinist like Shankara, did not produce monstrosities like Da Free John as Maharsi did. As for Jesus, well who knows…he lived long ago….And Aleister Crowley…don’t put Osho in the same category, but the terrible combinations of Osho, Crowley and Gurdjieff are coming down the pike. best to be well out of dharma disneyland at that point… People are going to start to turn Osho rascality into Gurdjieff/Crowley demonology. It would be nice if the victims could be warned and bypass the black hole. Modernity completed eliminated all this back history. People complain there, but maybe it was wise…The modern world must move to something new…

Perhaps, as in Advaita depictions, the enlightenment experience was doomed to pass, leaving the real thing either press or not present…
Much of the cavil at the link thus misses the point. Who cares, fuck it.

Maybe…but in the same way the influence of Gurdjieff destabilized Osho, and to compare him to Krishnamurti is useless. Khrishnamurti (he reminds me of myself) was a firecracker that never went off.

Try to understand the point: if Gautama or after his parinirvana his sangha plotted esoteric fascism up to Hitler then the buddhadharma is finished. Its legacy is dead. I think Osho just went crazy at this point, and his own crypto-fascism was part of his madness. The spiritual path is lost and gone forever if disciples so-called have to suffer through charges of spiritual failure to surrender if they won’t do the Heil Hitler. That seemed absurd to me at one point, but I have realized in some shock and sadness that that is really the case, behind the scenes, and in the unconscious of many. You have to say good bye to spiritual paths of the Indic type, goodbye to all that… Let that be an hypothesis: indic dharmic paths plus buddhism are very ancient, and have reached terminal decadence. ???

I have had no connection to any of this, having lived alone all the way through, too broke to make it to India. Perhaps my good fortune…
