From The Sannyas Wiki. Jump to: navigation , search. In what may be the juiciest, most intimate tapestry of talks ever given by an enlightened master, Osho paints the stories of his delightful, inquisitive and mischievous childhood. He began his explorations into truth with an incredible innocence and courage. With his spirited nature, he questioned every orthodox belief and everyone who blindly espoused any such belief rather than by their own authentic reason.

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 Believe it or not, right after reading this book, I felt rebellious myself to throw some sharp language to a man.
Yes, I just behaved rudely and crudely, as I never did before, but I kept things fair and right, so that he doesn't step on me. Human relationships are curious, to some people you send positive vibes, love and compassion, and you get slaped all over your face. But when you slap this person yourself metaphorically he suddenly listen and considere you.
Just like you go from his slave to his master. I am thankful for this unconventional book, as it revived my pride and I got some precious insights about human psychology I didn't find in any other classic books.
I found some similarities with my own childhood that are dear to me: the way Osho was attracted almost obsessed by weird and so called "mad" people. The way he considered himself crazy. I too, felt so good considering myself crazy and free when I was a child. However, we differ the way he used to talk so easily to adults, whereas it was a barrier to me.
The way he dared to do anything is beautiful. I like his idea that friendship is greater than love. It strikes me how heavenly a friendship can feel as I used to experiment as a child , yet how difficult it is to make friend, especially as we grow older.
Osho said it's perfectly ok to have enemies, or you won't have friends. I perhaps fell into this trap to be pleasant to everyone, to be too naive. Osho had as many friends as he had enemies, and he became an expert to spot a friend or an enemy at first sight with any new person he was being introduced to. I like the way he dared to be himself in any circumstances, whereas most of us behave like "sheep".
For example, he managed to expell his teacher on his first day of school. Everyone disliked this teacher for being a torturer, but he really used straight talk, almost threatening him, then he went to the right persons supervisor, intendent, mayor He was helped by influencial adults who recognized in this child fearlessness.
His shocking behaviors can break weak people, but strong people would have a good laugh and become friends. They were so demanding for his stories that he had to say anything. This gave him a talent for telling stories. Attention may be the most precious thing you can give to a child. I now completely understand why Naval said: "Osho isn't always rational, and he isn't always modest, but when he's on, he's on. But he has an interesting barometer. Clear, without filters, that is actually more helpful to awaken someone rather than telling him whatever he wants to hear.
Just a random example, quoting Osho from the book: "The secretary was dumb, as secretaries always are, otherwise why should they be secretaries? We are constantly conforming, in a rat race, and here is the power of the unconventional path.
As Osho said, he always loved to do all what others don't do. Aug 01, Sachin Bhatt rated it really liked it 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. Oct 15, Vishal Thanvi rated it it was amazing. Oct 03, Akshay Cm rated it liked it. 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 the excitement and stories happen in the appendix end of the book.
Unlike other Osho books , this is book is tad low on keeping reader's interest going. Nov 17, Sukh rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. 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. The uncommon childhood of an uncommon genius.. Sep 15, Bella rated it it was amazing. 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. Feb 05, Akash Saxena rated it it was amazing.
Lovely book, I wish there was a second part to this. Sep 13, Yogesh rated it it was amazing. This Book is just fabulous. I think everyone on a spiritual journey should get their hands to this book.

Glimpses of A Golden Childhood
The first words that Ajit Saraswati uttered to me last night were, "Osho, I never expected that I would ever make it. And that too is in a way true, relevant, because I remember the first day he came to see me twenty years ago. He had had to ask permission from his wife just to see me for a few minutes. So those who were present must have understood, naturally, that he had never expected to move in, leaving his wife and children and a very good business. Renouncing all, just to be here with me But that was not what he meant, and I understood.
