Socrates Poisoned Again After 25 Centuries
by Osho, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
1st Edition 1988
*** Spiritual Book Gift with this order ***
As the bishop of Crete's Greek Orthodox Church urges the local citizenry to forcibly drive him out of the villa where he is staying, Osho revives the spirit of Zorba in a series of lively talks to his disciples and to visiting journalists. Eventually Osho, like Socrates, was accused of "corrupting the youth" - and his heavy-handed deportation is documented in an eight-page colour section at the end of this volume. But in the meantime the "corruption" was recorded on audio and video tapes, and now in print. A banquet of timely topics, from politics and religion to teenagers and sex, it sparkles like the Mediterranean setting in which it happened.
