For example, rather than simply teaching the set syllabus, Osho prefers to give his students a fully rounded picture. ‘I was teaching students everything that the university prescribed and also showing them how much was bogus. I was teaching Aristotle, and at the same time I was teaching them that Aristotle was not right. My period was divided into two sections: first, I will teach them what Aristotle means, and then I will say that he is wrong. So, I was complained against because this was a strange way of teaching and the students were getting confused.’
Despite his unorthodox teaching methods he is immensely popular and his classes are packed, not just with students from other faculties (officially, only five students were registered for philosophy), but also by many of the professors. Eventually his talks have to be moved into the biggest hall at the university when almost the entire staff and students showed up.
