Osho (or Wang Xiang in the Chinese tale) lost his mother at a young age. Though his father took a new wife, the woman despised the boy. After sometime, she turned Osho’s father against him. Despite this cruelty, the young Osho remained devoted to them both. One cold winter his stepmother fell ill and had a craving for fresh fish. Osho went to the frozen river, removed his clothes, and thawed the ice with his body heat. He was able to catch two carp for his stepmother. When he presented the fish, she changed her behavior towards Osho.
