That guy was a fuckin nut in the 70's & 80's! I totally remember him as a
kid! He is about God like as L Ron Hitler is to Scientology! His followers
did some bio terror on some towns people! It was a big deal back then, but
if it was done now he would be in prison or sentenced to death! Cults should
be outlawed and he sure did have a sense humor alright!

Check this...

In 1981, Osho relocated to the United States and his followers established
an _intentional community_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intentional_community) , later known as _Rajneeshpuram_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajneeshpuram) , in the state of _Oregon_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon) .
Within a year, the leadership of the commune became embroiled in a conflict
with local residents, primarily over land use, which was marked by
hostility on both sides. The large collection of _Rolls-Royce_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolls-Royce_(car)) automobiles purchased for his use by his
followers also attracted notoriety. The Oregon commune collapsed in 1985 when
Osho revealed that the commune leadership had committed a number of serious
crimes, including a _bioterror attack_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_Rajneeshee_bioterror_attack) (food contamination) on the citizens of _The
Dalles_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dalles,_Oregon) ._[3]_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osho_(Bhagwan_Shree_Rajneesh)#cite_note-FF2-108-2) He
was arrested shortly afterwards and charged with immigration violations. Osho
was _deported_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deportation) from the United
States in accordance with a _plea bargain_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plea_bargain) ._[4]_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osho_(Bhagwan_Shree_Rajneesh)#cite_note-Latkin342-3) _[5]_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osho_(Bhagwan_Shree_Rajneesh)#cite_note-4) _[6]_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osho_(Bhagwan_Shree_Rajneesh)#cite_note-5) Twenty-one countries denied him entry,
causing Osho to travel the world before returning to Poona, where he died in
1990. His ashram is today known as the Osho International Meditation Resort.
His _syncretic_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syncretic) teachings
emphasise the importance of _meditation_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditation)
, awareness, _love_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love) , celebration,
courage, _creativity_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creativity) and _humour_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humour) —qualities that he viewed as being
suppressed by adherence to static belief systems, religious tradition and
_socialisation_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialisation) . Osho's teachings
have had a notable impact on Western _New Age_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Age) thought,_[7]_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osho_(Bhagwan_Shree_Rajneesh)#cite_note-6) _[8]_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osho_(Bhagwan_Shree_Rajneesh)#cite_note-GIA177-7) and their popularity has increased
markedly since his death._[9]_

He mentions Osho...that's the (now deceased) Indian guru guy whose idea of
Wisdom was getting his followers to buy him a Rolls Royce for every day of
the year. The guy who built an exotic meditation retreat where overly
credulous westerners can pay a small fortune to go to and do classes in
forced laughter and flapping your arms like a bird.
