Osho Rajneesh Wiki Biography
Rajneesh (a childhood nickname from Sanskrit रजनि rajani, night and ईश isha, lord) was born Chandra Mohan Jain, the eldest of eleven children of a cloth merchant, at his maternal grandparents’ house in Kuchwada; a small village in the Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh state in India. His parents Babulal and Saraswati Jain, who were TaranpanthiJains, let him live with his maternal grandparents until he was seven years old. By Rajneesh’s own account, this was a major influence on his development because his grandmother gave him the utmost freedom, leaving him carefree without an imposed education or restrictions. Osho Rajneesh Wiki
When he was seven years old, his grandfather died, and he went to Gadarwara to live with his parents. Rajneesh was profoundly affected by his grandfather’s death, and again by the death of his childhood girlfriend and cousin Shashi from typhoid when he was 15, leading to a preoccupation with death that lasted throughout much of his childhood and youth. In his school years, he was a rebellious, but gifted student, and gained a reputation as a formidable debater. Rajneesh became an anti-theist, took an interest in hypnosis and briefly associated with socialism and two Indian nationalist organisations: the Indian National Army and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. However, his membership in the organisations was short-lived as he could not submit to any external discipline, ideology or system. Osho Rajneesh Wiki

Having proved himself to be disruptively argumentative, he was not required to attend college classes in D. N. Jain College except for examinations and used his free time to work for a few months as an assistant editor at a local newspaper. He began speaking in public at the annual Sarva Dharma Sammelan (Meeting of all faiths) held at Jabalpur, organised by the Taranpanthi Jain community into which he was born, and participated there from 1951 to 1968.

Controversies Around Osho
A major reason that Osho was controversial in India and indeed the West, was his advocacy of sexual freedom and exploration. For example, note how Lonely Planet’s India Survival Guide from the 1980s, talks about him. This is in fact one of the more taciturn and unbiased reviews. “With India’s great importance as a religious center it’s no wonder that so many people embark on some sort of spiritual quest while they’re there. There are all sorts of places and all sorts of gurus. One of the best known would have to be Osho Rajneesh Wiki and his orange folk but he has deserted Pune for greener pastures in Oregon. USA. The Pune ashram continues but on a much diminished scale.
Although Pune has a number of points of interest and can be conveniently visited if you’re heading from Bombay to Aurangabad (for Ajanta and Ellora) or to Goa, its major attraction to western visitors was the Shree Rajneesh Ashram The ashram became so well known that it was even included on the city bus tour, where, in a superb reversal of roles, Indians flocked to view westerners.
