'Glimpses of my Master' is an account of the life and work of the enlightened Indian mystic, Osho, written from the point of view of a close disciple. Veena Schlegel was one of the first western people to meet Osho, formerly Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, in Bombay, India, in1971. Working for him and his community in a number of ways - as a meditation centre leader, as an editor of his books, as one of his PR people in Rajneeshpuram in the USA and as one of a team of seamstresses responsible for his clothes and household effects - presented Veena with an opportunity to not only work on herself, but to observe him working with the hundreds of thousands of people coming from all over the world to listen to his words, do his meditations and live in his communes in India, the USA and around the world. Her book is about her very personal, often humorous, insights into this inspirational and extraordinary man and his attempts to help people become more aware and conscious and thus lead happier, more contented lives based on an understanding of their own personal truths. 'Glimpses of my Master' is the second of a trilogy of books in which Veena writes both about her journeys around the world and her journeys inwards on the spiritual path.
About the Author
After completing her university studies in 1966 in South Africa, where she was born and brought up, Veena Schlegel left home to see the world. In 1971 she travelled overland on an epic journey through unknown lands to India where she met her spiritual master, the enlightened mystic, Osho, in Mumbai - and her life changed forever. This was a new and different journey. Until Osho died in 1991, she lived and worked in his various communes in India and around the world. After his death she travelled further east on her spiritual quest, first to Japan where she taught English and explored Zen, and more recently to China which she visits often to meditate on the sacred Song Mountain in Henan Province. She has discovered much of the historical and spiritual (particularly Zen) heritage of this area as well as learning in detail about local traditional customs and contemporary Chinese life. She has written about Osho and his life and work for many publications in paper or online and is now working on a trilogy of books detailing her travels on the path. The first book, 'A Vanished Road' is an account of her overland journey to India. The second book, 'Glimpses of my Master' is an account of her life as a disciple of Osho. ((Both are available as ebooks and paperbacks on Amazon) Veena is now in China researching and writing the third book, 'A Mountain in China' (to be published shortly) which will tell of her journeys, physical and spiritual, in China.
