it sounds really interesting. I will look for it. I remember meeting a guy from Switzerland who was on his way back from the Rajneesh commune and he had spent all this money to go there including a hefty sum he gave the destructive Rajneesh group (when they bought part of Oregon). I remember him telling me how concerned the big guy was because they would buy their food and drink while there on top of other expenses and the big guy gave them these coupons or tokens of some sort for a free beer. Oh yeah. That's some lovin.

Yes, I am interested in the book. Another thing that seems to be common with most of these cult leaders is sexual exploitation of members.

Certainly was the case with Rajneesh. I am trying to remember what it was that brought his group down. I know he was deported and many assets seized, or something like that before he croaked.
