A Profound Portrait of Osho: a review of Veena Schlegel’s book ‘Glimpses of my Master’ by Bodhi Heeren

Not that many books are written about the controversial mystic Osho (aka Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) and not surprisingly the most popular are the ones filled with slanderous rumours, misunderstandings and downright lies.

Here we get something completely different — a moving, personal story by an intimate disciple who both worked as an editor of Osho’s book and later as chief designer of his often outrageously beautiful robes (and hats). Throwing light on the mysterious ways of an enlightened Master and his endless compassion for whoever comes close to him. Filled with funny episodes, profound transformations and glimpses of the beyond… although Veena mostly stays away from the esoteric.

The book is extremely well-written and entertaining and definitely one of the best ever portraits of Osho. Parts of it have previously been published in her long out-of-print books like “A Seam for the Master”; unfortunately, this book is without the beautiful pictures which she claims she can’t reproduce due to copyright issues.

That she has a critical outlook on the way Osho’s legacy has been handled is no secret, but she is the first to admit that it’s just her personal view. And some of her points are definitely highly relevant.

A must for anyone interested in the complex play between Master and disciple, or who is seriously into spirituality and transformation and of course for anyone interested in Osho.

The book is available as both paperback and Kindle ebook on the following links :-
