.At his first stop, Greece, Osho is granted a 30-day tourist visa. He moves into a house on the island of Crete owned by Nikos Koundouros, a Greek film-maker.

Immediately, people from all over the world flock to be with him, and he starts giving daily talks. But after only 18 days, on March 5, Greek police forcibly break into the house where he is staying, arrest him at gunpoint, and deport him.

Greek media reports indicate government and church pressure provoked the police intervention.

During the following two weeks he visits or asks permission to visit 17 countries in Europe and the Americas. All of these countries either refuse to grant him a visitor’s visa or revoke his visa upon his arrival, and force him to leave. Some refuse even landing permission for his plane. See these books for more information.
