Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh rose from a precocious boy in India to a spiritual guru to tens of thousands of people worldwide. He became famous for his controversial teachings and lavish lifestyle, leading some to call him a cult leader. Building Utopia paints an immersive, unflinching portrait of Rajneesh and the people who chose to devote their lives to him -- including his top lieutenants, who fled his Rajneeshpuram commune in 1985 amid a cloud of criminal allegations. Building Utopia will captivate those familiar with Rajneesh, as well as those who have not yet discovered his fascinating and troubling story.

Customer Reviews


Love Rusty’s style. The storytelling is captivating and the music is great.

What was it like?

In a time of free love, Rusty paints a comprehensive picture of the evolution of the man and his unique spiritual movement. With his eye for detail, Rusty sets the stage for each of the colorful characters in this melodrama and brings compelling evidence for the true motivations behind their oftentimes ruthlessly effective tactics. In a modern era of fear of the “other,” Rusty also analyzes the response of the local townsfolk in Oregon who found their way of life upended and their fragile sense of community shaken by the introduction of the maroon-clothed, enlightenment-seeking pilgrims.

Truly impactful!
