This is a very special volume because rather than responding to questions and sutras, Osho is simply sharing his enlightened consciousness as he recalls his rebellious and mischievous childhood through fascinating, entertaining and inspiring stories. This edition also includes many beautiful, rare, and intimate photos of the ordinary daily activities of an enlightened myst ...more

Recommends it for: osho fans
This book is sort of autobiography of Osho. Consists of Osho's childhood days, how he was an individual since his childhood. sometime things are difficult to digest on how a seven year old kid can make a sadhu run away from village, and many other incidents

Best part i felt was his love with a tree in his university. good to read

Believe it or not, right after reading this book, I felt rebellious myself to throw some sharp language to a man.
I've always been kind, polite, considerate, and as a result our "business" got stuck for 4 years.
I am now laughing how crude I just behave to this man, just like Osho did so many times in his childhood.
This man's reaction is one of a child, and it's so funny, I couldn't even imagine it would work like this.
Yes, I just behaved rudely and crudely, as I never did before, but I kept thing

This book isdivided into 3 broad categories - His Nani's (Grand-ma) influence , Pagal Baba , and Masto's . I found the book to be a little dragging in nature. Although I love Osho , I wouldn't recommend this book to every average reader . His black and white vintage photos popup in more than 50 pages and you can see clear clarity of the eyes ,look of an enlightened man peering onto your soul .

Although I enjoyed his mischievous stories and troubles he caused , some may find it outrageous.

Much of

A delightful read. Without any beginning and end, jumping from one anecdote to another without any connection. Totally meaningless but yet so beautiful like life itself. I wish, I had come across this during my childhood days. Its unbelievable, someone could be so rebellious, so courageous and so fearless from the childhood itself. Will cherish reading this forever.

Everything was right for Osho in the beginning only. The imprints you get in your childhood have major impact on who you will be in the future.
