Info about Osho followers



   Some members of some religious movements commit crimes; the organisational structure of some religious movements opens the way for abuses of authority. But criminal, dangerous or 'anti-social' behaviour is by no means typical of all religious movements. Simply because a religion is unfamiliar, or new or 'different' does not mean that it is necessarily a cause for concern. On the other hand, lack of information or misinformation about religious movements - old and new - can and does result in unnecessary suffering.


    Fact: Residents of Rajneeshpuram (a township, now defunct, built by followers of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, latterly known as Osho) were found to have a high level of mental health. Research indicated that Bhagwan's followers had very positive self-concepts, and, compared with the wider society, lower feelings of personal distress and anxiety and greater feelings of personal autonomy and independence of thought.
