 The Ridiculous Teachings of Wrong Way Rajneesh
Rajneesh was an advocate of the ancient Hindu myths of "Tantra," and in a lecture he defended the ancient Tantric practice of parents having sex with their own children.
Rajneesh's lifelong teaching was that all human beings have souls which reincarnate form one lifetime to the next, and we are all trapped in a continuous cycle of birth and death (reincarnation) until enlightenment sets us free.
Rajneesh thus briefly admitted in essence that his entire life's teaching was false, based on myths and lies, and that he had no first hand experience of souls, reincarnation, ghosts, or "bodyless masters,"...all the attention grabbing headlines of his fairytale philosophy.

What’s not “laughable” is that Rajneesh or “Osho”; as he is now often called, still has followers, who unlike McCarthy have never ceased in their devotion to the guru.

However, back in Antelope, Oregon where Rajneesh tried to poison people with salmonella and sickened about 750 residents, the only remaining residue of his rule that still remains is a small plaque at the base of the post-office flagpole.
