Misleading Teachings Enthusiasts of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (1931-90) often stress that he has over 600 books in his name.The actual history of Indian Buddhism was very different.
The extremist therapy ashram created at Poona (Pune) by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (1931-1990) is one of the most controversial episodes in Indian guru history. Numerous errors have been found in the Rajneesh output. Timothy Conway (1) sampled the interviews found in (Rajneesh Foundation, 1986, and online extensions).The extension in Oregon during the 1980s involved a commune that became notorious for aggressive behaviour on the part of an elite. He concluded that Rajneesh was "woefully uninformed" about many of his topics (The Enigmatic Bhagwan). The deceptions that can arise from self-love are so extensive that no proficient psychologist or conscientious citizen is exempt from cautionary scruple in this respect. The format often resembles a "new age" commentary, including such favoured slogans as "Love yourself." The ability of people to love themselves is not in dispute, but the exhortation is not praiseworthy.
Those books were not written works, but edited by his followers from discourses, lectures, and interviews. This factor is believed by followers to prove his status as a great mystic or philosopher.
