The name Devgrah

In my search for some degree of understanding of what makes people tick - me in particular and later the search for enlightenment I was introduced to the teachings of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh in 1980. He spoke to me (via an audio tape) in a way no-one else ever had. I was fascinated by who this man was and what he knew that I didn't. I read and listened to his words extensively as well as anyone else who I thought might help me in my quest.

Some years later I went to see Bhagwan in Oregon USA to become a sanyassin (spiritual seeker). The name he gave me was Swami (monk) Prem (love) Devgrah (Temple). I never really used the name publicly which showed just how identified I was with 'my' birth name.
