Osho's Oh Noes

File under: Gurubusting

For a grab bag of some of the fallacies perpetrated by the late, famous Bhagwan Rajneesh, aka Osho, check out this list compiled by Osho debunker Christopher Calder:
Rajneesh once stated that one could produce a Buddha by having sexual intercourse with a woman for three hours straight, then nine months later out pops a Buddha baby due to the long and blissful copulation. Rajneesh stated this theory at a time when he had little experience with sex. In addition to the absurdity of his basic premise, Rajneesh did not understand that if sexual intercourse sessions last too long women tend to lose vaginal lubrication and men are subject to friction blisters.
Nobody said making baby Buddhas would be easy.

Funny to think that Rajneesh had to take 3 hours to make a Buddha when Jody's, semblances and my own Dads did the same in about 3 minutes!

PS

Chuck JR only took right at 35 seconds! Guess that puts me as enlightened as Rajneesh!

But if it cuts down on all that meditation and mindfullness practice maybe a little chaffing is worth it.
Calder also mentions that Osho asked woman to get their tubes tied. why? to cut down the number of karma laden births?
I recently came across a memorial website for an Osho Devotee who had died from a tubule pregnancy that was the result of having her ligation reversed, apparently this is a common outcome of the reversal procedure. I am struck by the particular way that woman suffer in a deal like this. i think osho was trying to have his cake and eat it, unlimited sex but no fear of unwanted kiddies or Karma. It's amazing what you can get people to do if you know their weakness and can manipulate it. why would people follow the advice of a teacher who had less practical experience then they had?

chick ji ! the 3 hours include unzipping and awakening and seeking and anchoring. Musta been a tough job for osho with all that hair preventing his vision from locating...

ah ! that should have been chuckji and not chickji. Classic error of a man in heat, who will commit any error for his own pleasure hunting. Just the difference here is, i dont regret, nor chuckji, about that silly typo. Me sober now, but for how long, only lord ganesha knows..

Sem, I have let the "chickji" pass. No duel need be fought over it this time... But since it takes me nearly a hour to get my lard ass out of bed and into my overalls, at my age, I'm not likely to go through all that trouble again for a 35 second--to 3 minute experience with Chuck JR's Mother, even if she was willin which she ain't!

Chuck JR is as close to a Buddha as this humble son of the soil can accomplish this go round!
