‘Ten Thousand Shades of Ocean’ is divided into five sixty-minute episodes covering different periods of Osho’s life and presented as follows:

Episode 1

The first episode describes Osho’s rebellious and wild childhood in Central India between 1931 and 1953, the date of his spiritual realization when he was a student of philosophy in Jabalpur. 
It also narrates his travels through India, as the Acharya, the Teacher, later to become known as Bhagwan, the Blessed One.
At that time, he was being painted as a dangerous man by the Indian press, earning this infamous reputation by shocking and angering the deeply conservative Hindu populace with his revolutionary outspoken views on sex, religion and politics.

Episode 2

The second episode narrates the arrival of the first Western disciples on the tracks of the so called hippy trail.
This gave way, together with many well-known therapists from the growth movement in the US and Europe, to Osho’s first community in Pune near Mumbai, bridging the spiritual tradition of the East with the methods of self-discovery of the West.

Episode 3

The third episode deals with the period when the guru moved to the United States creating ever more controversies, particularly with his provocative collection of ninety plus Rolls-Royces.
This period, which was the focus of the Netflix series ‘Wild Wild Country’, explores many of the angles that were missing from that series, such as the profound reasons why so many people gave up their financial and social security in order to build a new city from scratch.

Episode 4

The fourth episode is again exploring many details that were not shown in Wild Wild Country.
For example, the mysterious three days that Osho spent in an Oklahoma jail cell, incarcerated under a false name and allegedly poisoned.
It will also show how the US government used its political clout to block several western nations from offering asylum to Osho after he was expulsed from the United States.

Episode 5

This last episode narrates Osho’s return to India, leading up to his premature death in 1990 at only 59 years of age - still a subject of enquiry.
