VATAYANA LETTER (Inner Circle, Pune)

to Bhakta, Osho Centre, Yekaterinberg, Russia

(We produce this letter at present without comment from Sannyasnews)

Dear Bhakta,

Since I have sent you a previous letter we haven't heard back from you. I am now back in the Meditation Resort, Pune and again I heard that in your OSHO Centre you will accommodate events run by the person Rajneesh in the next weeks..

I want to be very open and let you know that people have sent us a list of places where this person who calls himself "Rajneesh" is travelling too. One of the places is Yekaterinburg.

Please understand that these kind of events are not part of the understanding how Osho wanted his centres to operate.

He says " …a centre should be a taste of this place ( Meditation Resort ,Pune )" and this person (Rajneesh) is at this point not welcome in the OSHO International Meditation Resort and has not and will not be invited to facilitate events or meditations in the Meditation Resort.

As explained in the centre training, that as an individual one may feel different, but as an OSHO centre representative there is a need to understand what you have signed in the Letter of Understanding that … Osho speaks for himself, with no intermediary. He says: "I have no successor".

That's why an OSHO centre is just providing the space for the OSHO Meditations and / or some workshops with some therapist who also works in the OSHO Multiversity Pune as they have a good understanding how Osho wanted his therapies presented.

I also heard, that you Bhakta have recently been in the Pune. It's really a pity that you didn't come to our office to talk about these things and to take part in the centre training as this could have given you a wider view and understanding why such events aren't part of the guidelines for OSHO centres.

Just in short – whenever we offer such events where someone creates a certain kind of energy – this may be liked by many people as it's maybe more easy for people to "let someone else" tell them what to do, or "giving" you energy, but long-term, eventually the experience, (and this is also what we hear from other places),
it misleads and confuses people – as the idea starts happening that one can have this kind of energy only in the presence of such a person, and this may create a dependency.

OSHO centres should offer the meditations, therapies, meditative therapies, as Osho has given, and encourage people that they can make it for themselves

Because, as I heard Osho say something like… that if someone can give it to you, they can also can take it away from you.

It would be really great to hear from you as soon as possible.

    what you are doing is utter nonsense, you are trying to overpower people ,
    you have a will to power and a wrong understanding of what Osho is.
    you are only into power, prestige and money and have a violent attitude towards others.

    people like you should not manage osho´s affairs anymore.

    by your action you have proved to the sannyasworld who you are.
    people like you should be publicly exposed to the media
    and shown as an example of how power corrupts and absloute power corrupts absolute.
    your stupidity and unconsciousness is unbelievable .

    pls get lost .

    Oh dear! the same old politics going around i may as well chip in. Whether or not this guy ‘rajneesh’ is a nutter or not,and i know he is, it is necessary to protect osho’s heritage and not constructive to attack someone who is trying to do this, Meera, you are the one who is coming across as violent.
    Close your eyes, take few deep breaths and stop!

    It is not a question for most of the sannyasins, whether Rajneesh is the new enlightend boy in the market, but how the affairs are being run at 17,Koregaon Park, Poona. The management there must ask the opinion of sannyasins and i am sure over whelming majority will prefer a change, “Change,we can beleive in”. For sure the head and the brain of the organnisation has done many changes but they are the changes almost like what President Mugabe in Zimbabwe has done. They are not intune with the changes required to satisfy the longing of seekers heart.
    Rajneesh is not a Obama of the sannyas world but around a million clicks on his website are enough proof that seekers connected with Osho are not at all happy with the management team or Inner circle of 20 people, if by chance that inner circle still exists..
    Let the place be run by the international team of 20 people, they should take decisions as Osho mentions, after meditating at the Samadhi, when mind heart and soul are in balance.
    In the last 18 years decisions have been taken by some shrewd guys at New York or in a small dingy room at the adminsitrative block at 17, koregaon Park, Poona, inbetween smoke and the wine or whisky!

    my guess, opinion, is that the resort management are doing a good job given very changed circumstances. my guess is that if they had kept everything very devotional as it was when Osho was in body, they would not get sufficient visitors to ensure Resort’s continuation. My impression is that young people, in west at least, are not as troubled and alienated as baby boomers were, and don’t want big heavy doses of devotion and meditation.

    anyone who wants that can go to tapoban. i think many western newcomers would be put off by tapoban, it would be too much for them. Pune is very good for a beginner without too many problems

    This point about the inner-circle-comment is worth looking at, for an insight about Osho now & here … and those teachers and satsang-givers on the other hand.

    Osho gave a plus to Jiddhu Krishnamurti but a double minus to U.G. Krishnamurti – both having enough authority on their own. Why ? Because he felt Jiddhu can do a favour to Sannyasins and the other way round … With U.G. he felt he could destroy the newborn seekers possibilities to understand eventually. He cared for his people, perfectly knowing UG was his college anyway.

    Nowadays the heritage of Osho – coming via Pune – is one thing, and new insights of other masters or teachers are something else. And this was the same when Osho was in his body. Why ?

    A Buddha is a Buddha is a Buddha – but in the world they have very different faces and individual ways to work and shine. You can see, to whom your taste and love will guide you, and have this freedom all on your side !

    The Pune-Church – and I don’t want to blame them with this word – is not concerning your freedom at all. They just care about the pureness of just Osho shining through. The idea is to present as much as possible and let it shine on, what still can come through this channel.

    We can mix and mingle our beloveds, if we want. They just want HIS message to live as long as possible. That is OK. Please don’t feel they want to controle your and our freedom. I feel they perfectly know that difference.

    The problem is: Mixing Osho with othres, destroys the heritage of Osho for new beginners, and for those still in progress about what Osho means for them. Keep him clean !

    Inside the community: ‘the only begotten son of god’ is no believe, but just a tool to make him shine through just a little bit longer, as he cannot do this job any longer on his own. Maybe a shallow survival, on the outside, but you can still connect to all of it, when you deeply go inside, right ?
