The Sound of Running Water
Many friends of Osho's will remember The Sound of Running Water, the beautiful, big photo biography that was produced in Poona One times. Many gorgeous photos of Osho, his people, and his ashram, plus numerous quotes tell the story of Osho's life and work between 1974 and 1978.
The book was printed in a limited edition and went out of print more than 20 years ago when Avirbhava bought the last (signed) copy for $14,000 in Poona Two. Over the years, many sannyasins would sadly remember the time when they snapped up a copy for $100 in Rajneeshpuram – and gave it away. Sometimes a copy would appear on ebay or Amazon, offered for several thousand dollars.
Now Swami Jagdish in Pune has reprinted the book, with the same photos and text, in almost the exact same format, and we have just received a small shipment. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy.
The “sister” book to The Sound of Running Water has also been reprinted, with a new title, The Song of the Ocean. (The earlier version of the book was titled
This Very Place: The Lotus Paradise.) This new version has some additional chapters and covers Osho’s life and work from 1979 to 1990.
Each book measures 12 1/2 by 11 inches. The Sound of Running Water weighs about 7.5 lbs, and The Song of the Ocean about 5.5 lbs.
We are offering The Sound of Running Water for $895 and The Song of the Ocean for $595.
I think the two books are must-haves for every lover of Osho.
