On the Edge
by Yoga Punya
Your book is totally enthralling, Punya! I started reading it last night and had to force myself to stop.

Liebe Punya, wow – ich bin so in Oshos Energie dank deines Buches!!! Erzähle Purnam immer wieder davon oder lese vor… Wunderbar – danke! Love,
Your book is a major contribution, and I postponed writing to you until I had finished my reading. A lot of words could be said here. No need. Please accept my silent admiration.

Congratulations, Punya, on this brilliant achievement. To write a book like this needs huge courage and deep commitment. This morning a copy arrived in the mail, I was so excited I opened it for a quick scan through as I had a lot to do today…but simply could not put it down, words just flow effortlessly off the page and now I am going back to it! THANK YOU for your beautiful writing.

What echoes through and through in Punya’s book is the whole concept of “Trust.” She continuously reminds us that if you are going to receive initiation from an Enlightened Master, then it requires that you trust, with awareness, in all its dimensions, the life that unfolds for you.
Thank you, Punya! A great tale! Highly recommended.
Having been there myself, I can only admire Punya’s wonderful gift to bring back the vivid atmosphere and unique flavour of those exceptional times and places, where so many extraordinary human beings discovered the blessings of just being ordinary and so many ordinary guys were transformed into a laughing and loving community of extraordinary living Buddhas.
“On the Edge” was compelling and fascinating reading for me. Before reading it, I had little idea of what life was like as an insider at the ashram or on the ranch. Now I have a deeply painted picture. Punya’s courage and effort in writing the book are inspiring and I am very grateful for it.
For a long time I’ve tried to follow the precept ‘live in the present moment; drop the past’ but when I was reading your book some precious moments from my past became so tangibly present I had to revise this idea. I could feel, smell taste and touch those amazing other worlds I’d also experienced in Pune and on the Ranch.
It seemed that the past had become my present reality. So may be there’s a timeless dimension in which treasured moments are eternal and if so they are never lost.
Thank you dear Punya for leading me there.
I just finished your beautiful book “On the Edge”. It touched me deeply and I am expressing my appreciation for your sharing your journey as a sannyasin. I laughed and cried along with you and certain inner spaces were opened by your words.
