Yes, he seems to respect the teachings of Masters or Teachers from which the various religions were started....Christ, Buddha. From this, I get the notion that it is NOT the teachings he is an enemy of....BUT the perversion of these teachings that occurs when these Great Ones are shrunk down into a controlled entity called "religion". It is the "religion" that morphs into something so unlike the Masters it was inspired by and often becomes nothing more than a means to control the masses. I see Osho inspiring independent thought in terms of spirituality; but not denying the wonderful teachings of Enlightened Ones through history.
