Amazon review

restored

I removed this review from Amazon: it was a moment of self-defense. It worked. I may put it back..

It is actually a useful review, with some modifications…

Thus turns the wheel of the gods, in a round of Osho cliches. Before we had prophets of god, now we have prophets of no god, with a twist of Nietzsche lemon. It makes sense to rid religion of the dreary dogmas of theism, but the genius of Nietzsche found the devil’s clue to making secularists (atheists?) poor devils. Just as the brimstone preacher warned, these shamblers are headed down hill. They should soon repent. ‘God’ was once a ‘higher power’ beyond the caudillos of buddha dictatorships like those of Osho…Without ‘god’ you have no appeal against the tyranny of the buddhas.
The only way is beyond theism and atheism to some understanding of why monotheism arose in antiquity, as new agers foment the lost paganism of the ancients with the occult paganism of buddha gurus in their god realm. Osho wants to play in the majors here, but his buddhafield is a mediocre field of crypto-fascism and the rehash of mindfulness techniques. It is not clear if we are free of the god conspiracy, if there was one, and we are clearly not free of the guru/buddha conspiracy of the attack on autonomy and freedom. Was the Osho figure really enlightened? we are none the wiser as yet. Man is ‘hypervaded’ at all points of space with an antinomial mysterious eck, god, void, or kantian chewing gum. After a boring epoch of theists we confront a boring epoch of atheists, and Osho is its prophet.
