Format: Hardcover
This book contains truly exceptional stories from a mystics childhood. If one is in love with Osho and/or wants to know more about him, this is a must. In humourus, hilarious and exciting stories he paints a very lively picture of his adventorous and outstanding childhood. Both in ordinary everyday situatations and in his daring escapades in nature and other environments, he shows us his unique qualities of love, awareness, courage and extreme independence. This is a lions roar. Not a roar that frightens you, but a roar that may set your heart on fire, that may awaken your own search for your own inner true nature.

This is an amazing book, in fact it is my second favorite book of all time.
I really like to read books that have true stories like in biographies, because you really are learning with the experiences of other human beings.
This book covers almost all the life of Osho, since he was a little kid, through its adolescence, adulthood and the times he was already a known guru. In the book you can read an amazing diversity of stories about Osho, and his family, and his work...and believe me, if you know Osho, the stories are just hilarious and also with great teachings in them.
One thing that i really like is that the stories are told in the first person, by Osho himself, giving it an emphasys that otherwise maybe it wouldnt have.

I just read this book once, but just by making this review and remembering all those great stories i think i am going to read it again hehe :)

I've read this book three times. First time I thought it was a load of nonsense. Second time I thought it was not bad. Third time I thought it was one of the best stories I'd ever read. Osho was a lot of things perhaps not all of them good. But one thing is 100% sure he was a great storyteller. The book is best enjoyed when viewed from a non-serious perspective. MOJO

The greatest Master, whoever walked on this earth. 29 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
HIS words are the greatest gift to existence and if the whole world could be inspired by HIM, there would be no war, no fights, no politicians, no limitations.Humanity simply would become one unity, full of love, compassion and understanding. I'm grateful for HIS being still alive and radiant with love and truth. Thank you, OSHO

Portrait of a young Buddha as an Indian huck finn 8 Sept. 2000
By John C. Landon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This charming yet significant work is an autobiographical snapshot of the rare achievement of the 'fourth state' indicated in the classic yogas for which India is famous. A young rascal from an Indian village who found lessons in every direction including the handling of dangerous snakes from the local charmer to his sponataneous meditations in jogging, swimming, and immobility, the account unwittingly reveals the intangible nature of the means in such a quest, and the mysterious midwivery that India alone seems able to provide. Such a work is an important reminder of what even institutional buddhists would prefer to conceal in the eternal entrapment of bodhisattwas, success is possible, and frozen images of ancient buddhas are no myth. Not a single important Buddhist organization had the courage to even acknowledge the existence of this man. Worth keeping in mind. A beautiful work, and, strangely, out of print. Reprint this book immediately!
Amazing Book! 23 Feb. 2014
By Nuno Silva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of my favorite books of all time! I really love Autobiographies because in autobiographies you really get into someones life, someones feelings and thoughts, and this book is a great example of that. This stories were told by Osho himself, accounts of his life. And dont be fooled by the title "Glimpses of a Golden Childhood" because this book as stories form his childhood and adulthood. He tells us stories about is childhood with is grandparents where he lived freely and with almost the absence of rules. He tells us stories about his rebellious and unconformist temperament. He tells us about his search for enlightenment, about his masters, his enlightenment experience, about his life with his parents, when we went to college, when he was a teacher... all in all, a book full of great stories, enriching stories. I really recomend this one! 5 stars!
