The Only Life


Osho, Laxmi and a Journey of the Heart

by Rashid Maxwell

This is the story of a woman who blazed a path for herself and others in Osho's presence. Growing up an ordinary Indian girl in British India, and rendered powerless in a domineering world, Laxmi went to to become Osho's first disciple and secretary. What follows is an account of not just a life, but of the massive international movement which grew around Osho in the 1970s and 80s – one that Laxmi was at the helm of. Equally, what unfolds is a narrative, full of pathos, where her protégé usurps her place. Heartbroken, ostracized and later banished, she wanders the wastelands of America in isolation, seeking to rediscover herself by choosing devotion for her master over despair.
