unpublished private recordings made in
and elsewhere during Osho’s world tour

to escape from the agents and find a few rare days of resting in some
remote country house before once again the police knocked on their doors
and they were thrown out of the country.
Again Osho would have to look for a new
country that might consider giving him shelter and could tolerate his
talks for a few days.
Osho rarely gave discourses during that
time, only at places where he stayed longer. These were Kullu-Manali in
India, Kathmandu in Nepal, the island of Crete and Uruguay.

In all other countries
he did not speak in public and only very few incidents have been filmed.
