The discourses in the present work are the out
come of Shree Rajneesh’s first testing of-a new
idea, the meditation camp, envisaging an intensive
programme lasting several days, which enabled the
seekers to dive totally into an atmosphere of
meditation. The truth dawned on Bhagwan on the
night of 21 March 1953. Ever since, the Master was
devoting all his energies to help others see and
realize what he has known. The Perfect Way is
among the clearest, cleanest and most concise
collections of Bhagwan’s words. It unfolds the
mystery and the mastery of the inner processes of
the human soul. It tells how to see one’s soul. This
book is perfect for the ONE on the path, in whom
‘awareness has begun.
Wake up! You are not who you think
you are !
This is the call of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.
It is the daily morning reveille at his Ashram
in Poona; it is the call he has been making for
over twenty years. 7 .
"The Perfect Way" is early-Rajneesh. 1964.
Thirteen years ago. The discourses and ques-
tion-and-answer sessions in this volume came
out of his first testing of a new idea, the medi-
tation camp. He envisaged an intensive pro-
gramme lasting several days and allowing seekers
to dive totally into an atmosphere of meditation.
That initial camp was held in early June in a
quiet spot in the hills of Rajasthan, and
Bhagwan has used the camp format ever since.
At the Rajneesh Foundation Ashram in Poona
one ten-day camp is held every month.
In 1964 Bhagwan was a professor of philosophy
at the University of Jabalpur, one of
the major cities in his native state of Madhya
Pradesh. This first camp was held on one of
his vacations, but two years later he left teaching
to devote all his energies to God, to helping
others see and realize what he has known, to
helping others attain the flowering inherent
in each of us.
The Truth dawned on Bhagwan on the
night of March 21, 1953. And he has been
calling others to the same realization ever
since. Those who knew him years ago recall
an earnest and somewhat eccentric young man
always involved in some sort of bizarre experiment
jogging backwards, floating downstream on his
back for miles, running for hours
before breakfast, jumping off cliffs into rivers
and talking, talking, ceaselessly talking. He
spoke at public gatherings; he challenged
people on street corners; he talked to groups
of friends in private homes; he travelled the
trains speaking to anyone who would listen.
They tell stories of his being jeered, threatened,
stoned, imprisoned. But no matter how hard
they resisted the Truth or how hard or how
subtly we resist it now Bhagwan kept on and
keeps on calling. 15,000 words a day. 105,000
words a week. 5,500,000 words a year.
Although the call is basically the same,
you'll find a much different being in Poona
today than the young revolutionary who de-
livered the talks at that first camp. His approach
then was scientific, structured; his present
tactics defy labelling. He has moved beyond
the traditional practices he suggests in these
pages to the development of the most unique,
dynamic, amazing and ego/suppression-shatter-
ing meditation techniques this homeland of yoga
has ever seen. He has turned into a very
tricky devil indeed. He shocks, seduces, stuns,
soothes, spanks, spins spicy and sensational
stories and sends his sannyasins spiralling into
incredible spaces — and incredible growth.
But if you’ve never seen buddhahood,
no words, no pages of ‘"‘s’s’" can convey the
The Perfect Way is among the clearest,
cleanest and most concise collections of
Bhagwan’s words I’ve encountered. It unfolds
the mystery and the mastery of our inner
processes. It tells how to see your soul.
As I see it, this book is perfect for someone
on the path, for someone in whom awareness
has begun, for someone who’s already heeded
the call to awaken — be it from Bhagwan Shree
Rajneesh or from some other source.
This book is a jewel. And before us, every
Poona morning, he scatters handful after handful
of gems, all equally as precious.
