How Brilliant Was Acharya Rajneesh

India is the land of saints and seers. Collectively, India must have produced more holy men than the entire world. In addition, India has produced the founders of 4 great religions like Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism and ofcourse the mother of all religions, Hinduism. In addition many minor seers and holy men have been born in India. One man who also must rank with the seers and saints of India is Acharya Rajneesh. This professor from Jubblepore broke a different path from conventional wisdon. In fact Rajneesh just restated the concepts of Tantra, which form one facet of both Hinduism and Buddhism. Acharya
Rajneesh was a brilliant man. A reading of his biography reveals an interesting incident. When he was a student at college he asked his professor a strange question about Aristotle, who
is considered the father of western logic. He asked the professor whether he was aware that Aristotle had stated that women had fewer teeth than men. The professor a learned man was stumped why Rajneesh had asked this question. Rajneesh further amplified that Aristotle the father of western logic was wrong to make such a statement as he had 2 wives, at least he could have counted. This is a brilliant observation and shows that Rajneesh was a very brilliant man. He proved that the father of logic was not applying logic at evry step. Probably Aristotle made such a comment as in Greece in that period it was assumed that women had everything less than men. Rajneesh made a great impact on everyday thought and his meditation techniques are still appreciated
