posts. You response to JP is so lucid and simple and clear that I am hoping you can help
me understand nOby.
Does he truly honor Osho's mission, or is he an imbittered man who never was blessed with the transformation of which Osho and all realized masters speak. I cannot fathom much of his writing because of the language sytle he uses. I know that German is his first language, and he is very clever in his use of English, but it is very hard to follow him. What I get is an incessant mocking of virtually everyone.

had received enlightenment, the monk continued on his way, mumbling, "If only it were so."
