Product description

Product Description

On the Edge is the absorbing story of a young woman who, driven to explore the classic question "Who Am I?", fortuitously finds herself in India, as one of the first westerners at the feet of Osho, an enlightened mystic. His magical presence, his delightful and humourous personality, encourage her to dive into the secrets and wonders of meditation. Her vividly-described vignettes let the reader feel as if inside the commune walls, living out -- alongside fellow travelers from 100 countries -- the twists and turns, breakthroughs and setbacks of this unique mystery school. The heroine goes back and forth from west to east as she makes money in 'normal' jobs so that she can return to her beloved community; which itself moves from India to Oregon and back again.

Punya is Swiss, and her research as to dates and particulars is impeccable; her voice is earnest, even-tempered, and somehow innocent, as the story unfolds, past and present skipping around, giving us a sense of timelessness. Her calm prose lights up the various landscapes like easy sunshine.

For those who were there, the book will delight with its clear recollections, and will likely tell them things they didn't know. For those who only watched from a distance, or weren't born yet, Punya's inviting you into an extraordinary time with an extraordinary man.

About the Author

Punya spent her formative years in Italy and Switzerland and met the Indian mystic Osho (then known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) in 1974. She lived for many years in his communes - Pune, India; Oregon, USA; and then again in Pune. She was also involved in Osho's meditation centres in Milan, Geneva, Zurich, and Edinburgh. Her work 'in the world' has mostly involved design, publishing, languages (she speaks four) and advertising. She now runs the successful online magazine Osho News, and lives in Greece and the UK.
