flavour continues as Osho departs for Oregon and a new commune is created. One
of the highlights of Azima's narrative is his series of desperate attempts to
live and work on the Oregon Ranch, always to be thwarted in one way or
another. Yet his persistence shows his willingness to face all kinds of
setbacks while resolutely pursuing his love affair with his spiritual master.

inner circle, organising his discourses in Juhu Beach and then helping Osho
shift back to Pune, early in 1987.

devastating remarks Osho made about one of Azima's affairs, delivered in his

spiritual master, by his keen insights and by his humour.
