I can’t even exchange an email with an Osho sannyasin, so best of luck for a larger movement…

The current Osho movement seems stalled, and not having ever visited the Indian compound I am not in a position to evaluate anything. The current regime now charges $20 a day just to enter the grounds of the ashram. That’s a long way from a communal/communist ethos. I don’t think such issues are decisive.

We are talking about a movement that could without much trouble become a study area for a communist movement. The Osho format would be ideal for that. But a full lineage of 24 enlightened teertankers/buddhas would be hard to bring off. But India did in once already millennia ago.
Compare it with a living tradition of opera: the immense scale of operations, the core of which is the training of singers, is a considerable task, to say the least. A lineage of 24 buddhas (hopefully with thousands and thousands of realized disciples) would be no mean feat.
Maybe a commando squad of neo-communist sannyasins could simply take over the ashsram in Poona in a commando raid, and open the doors to a few rupees entry fees.
