Zorba the Buddha

Osho–an enlightened being called Zorba the Buddha by some–offended many people.
Why is that? He said, I am not a messiah, and I am not a missionary. And I am not here to establish a church or to give a doctrine to the world, a new religion, no. My effort is totally different: a new consciousness not a new religion, a new consciousness not a new doctrine.

What were his teachings? What is to offend? What is your opinion?

People need to be very skeptical of anyone claiming to have special insights, looking for followers. Many tragedies have resulted from blind following.
