Searching for name of a radical yogi from the '70s?

Does anyone know the name of the radical yogi (O_ _ _) who said to follow your desire because repression leads to obsession?

I think he came to America in the '70s and his name starts with an O and has 4 letters in it. There are conspiracy theories about how the FBI made him "disappear" twice for "telling the truth," whatever that means. He also wrote hundreds of books.

Does anyone know who I'm talking about? I would greatly appreciate his name!
