My Love of Osho

Celebration is my Message. Kranti speaks

Below is my understanding, and an expression of love for Osho. It is not for addressing any issue or ongoing conflicts…

To me , In essence Osho is about Celebration.. The core of His teaching lay in ‘ Celebration of Life ‘

To celebrate life there need to be acceptance and gratitude which comes out of meditation, awareness and understanding. This we gain by doing the meditations He gave, and listening to His beautiful & powerful discourses..

What else is Osho ? In spite of 1000s hours he spent talking to His people , the core of what He communicated is this ‘ Celebration of Life ‘.. the Rest is addressing individual questions according to the context and questioner… to me Adding more to Osho is insulting him… the very idea of adding more to Osho is a projection. I love Osho and I am so grateful to him that my heart is not allowing me to add / color Osho with what I want ..

Buddha’s essential teaching is mindfulness and realization of ‘ No self ‘. Adding anything more to Buddha is an insult.. But that is what happened.

From the issue of Why he gave a flower to Mahakashyap to what is his opinion on Non-Vegetarian food, to why he contradicted himself on the question of God… Those are things said /done in a specific context and addressed to a specific person… it is not the essence of his teaching.

So we have so many types of Buddhism / concepts around Buddha who did not even allow a single concept.. Every layer of onion was peeled and peeled and nothingness was given only to see so many concepts developing around him… there is a large religion around him now ..

So I asked myself , is the same happening to Osho ? My heart says ‘ NO ‘ as Osho did enough to stop a religion developing around Him… but how can I be sure … if it can happen to Buddha it can happen to Osho. But one advantage Osho has is whatever He said is recorded and at least people cannot add anything directly, although interpretations can always happen. Only life and time can tell …

In the preface to the book, “The Great Pilgrimage – From here to here”, Devageet puts it beautifully. “When people asked Osho questions irrespective of what the subject of that question was, the questioner always became the subject.. Osho’s answer was always on target.. he never missed..” Such a beautiful seeing.

Individually I do listen to Osho and see whether the question and answer he gave to someone applies to me also.. I do it all the time.. A question which is not at all relevant to me may or may not become relevant later.. Years later… I never know.

Similarly there cannot be a specific place where I can go and celebrate , be aware and come back to forget all about it… It has to happen right where I am… right where I live… but any place / structure which is facilitating / providing space for me to experiment with my Inner self using the meditations developed by Osho , where I can listen to Osho , Where I can free my energy by dancing is helpful because what I learned then can be carried into my daily life.

Accepting that Osho is all about ‘ Celebration of Life’ is NOT an interpretation of Osho or His vision or simplification of Osho.. Because that’s what Osho is ..Because Osho is simple. He was not complex. It is like saying a Rose Flower is beautiful . It is not an interpretation.. that is what a Rose flower is . a simple and beautiful presence.

I see Osho , wherever there is a beautiful flower , where I see a child’s laughter , wherever people are hugging and kissing each other lovingly , wherever there is Music , Wherever there is Dance , whenever someone cries deeply , whenever someone is sad , wherever superstition is questioned , wherever the past is thrown out of the window , wherever there is dew drop slipping , wherever I see someone chasing a butterfly, wherever I see gratitude , wherever I see intelligence , wherever someone choosing life instead of success.

Please share with me all the beautiful things expressed by Osho . Here is one:

“I am in tremendous love with life, hence I teach celebration. Everything has to be celebrated, everything has to be lived, loved. To me nothing is mundane and nothing is sacred. To me all is sacred, from the lowest rung of the ladder to the highest rung. It is the same ladder: from the body to the soul, from the physical to the spiritual, from sex to samadhi- everything is divine!
Celebration is the foundation of my sannyas- not renunciation but rejoicing; rejoicing in all the beauties, all the joys, all that life offers, because this whole life is a gift of God.

    Beautifully expressed.
    These are also Tears of Mystic Rose!

  2. Shanti says:

    I agree beautiful… better than the Bozzo…. kranti get it translated to many languages. i´ll kiss your feet with pleasure.

  3. Kartar says:

    Thanks for sharing Kranti…which reminds me:

    Respect yourself. Respect others. Hold your head high, walk the path of freedom. Be yourself, be watchful, and nothing can effect you. The joy of life is always with you.

    And you may have a dog that won’t sit up, roll over or even cook breakfast, not because she’s too stupid to learn how but because she’s too smart to bother.

    Peace

  4. Shahriar says:

    Well said Kranti,

    I am amazed, because now that I look at it, before I met Osho, I had never heard anything about celebrating life. No one had told me, I had never seen people celebrating. So now that you brought it up, I am grateful, perhaps I may have never learned anything about celebration without Osho.

    Love

    growth has many dimensions, thanks for sharing kranti

    yea great post!!

  7. Chinmaya says:

    With tears in my eyes, in the name of Osho, I salute you Kranti, for your real picturesque view, imagening the Master is listening in His utter silence – nothingness as hollow bamboo – sitting in Budhha Hall but in my heart, posted in this new Thread. Love……

  8. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Kranti

    I always see Swami Rajneesh dancing and celebrating Osho everyday at all his camps
    and says that dance and celebration is the way to bring Osho back into your heart and the only way to express your gratitude to Osho and to existence

    Just see the thousands of images of people dancing and celebrating everyday at his camps and you will see pure love and ecstacy in their eyes

    Yes celebration and gratitude is the real message
    and Rajneesh is living Osho’s message

    Dhyan Anurag

  9. shantam prem says:

    My God Anurag, why for a minute you are not willing to look at Osho straight, without any middle man.

    Or is it like a child, who while taking bath with the father thought, ” Look me and daddy have something special between the legs and nobody else.!”

  10. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Also Kranti

    Where is the celebration at the Poona Resort
    where thousands newcomers visit to see Osho’s celebrating vision in reality ??

    All celebrations are banned at the Resort
    which is the reality we live in

    So address this ” real issue ” and you will understand that there is no gound reality in the Resort

    Dhyan Anurag

  11. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Dear Shantam

    This point was just for Kranti who always attacks Rajneesh as Kranti is a hypocrite just shedding tears for the public and supporting
    the Resort No Celebrations Rules

    Infact Rajneesh book Tears of the Mystic Rose title was his love and gratitude towards Osho and those Tears of joy and grattude he offered to his Master

    I have read many threads where Rajneesh has been attacked vicously from all without any reasons
    Now we have this Shanti outbursts in every line
    so i am maintaing the balance so to speak

    Dhyan Anurag

  12. Kranti says:

    I am sitting in office..But tears flowing down..honestly …cant see the keyboard clearly.. I love Osho sannaysins wherever they are.. They are different versions of Osho himself.. Osho’s people are real people.. This is not to mean others are not beautiful..Just a Way of seeing

  13. Kranti says:

    Swami Anurag..A year or so back when i read the mystic rose book of Sw rajnessh i felt love for him..I even thought let me go and be with him as I missed Osho in my life.. there were deep moments in my life where i wanted to be with someone who personifies Osho..

    Thats why whenever i am sitting in Buudha Grove or any part of PUNE resort i dont miss anything in life.. there is a deep fulfillment.. Slowly i am realizing i need to carry that silence and fulfilment wherever i am .. Otherwise it looks incomplete.. Nowdays i can feel the silence and see Osho’s presense in so many ways.. I also understand that is possible because Osho has touched every aspect of my life..he has spoken , covered and penetrated every possible thing i can do and i just cant help remembering him in every life situation.. I am helpless.

    My understanding of Osho when he says celebration is it is not festivity or dancing alone.. It is in the acceptance of life and being centered in silence

    I am going through very hard times in life.. Sharing all these in sannyasnews has been great help for me.. Even sharing a simple post in sannyasnews with a fellow sannyasin gives me the same happiness which i can have in dancing with him/her in Buddha grove..

    Have problems in every aspect of life..But whatever Osho gave me is being put to test thouroughly.. I am able to see the gift of life..

    Love to you all

  14. Kranti says:

    Wish i can hold all of your hands sitting in Buddha hall now..

  15. shantam prem says:

    Anurag, Kranti or shantam, shanti etc…

    We the unknown sannyasins from around the world are the heart and soul of Osho’s life.
    He has called us all, His people.
    We are His messengers and the message.

    Nobody has the right and duty to come in between, otherwise we will have the army of priests and politicians.

    When majority of His sannyasins want to celebrate His birthday and other celebrations started by Him, NOBODY; NO Dick has the right to stop them abruptly…

    Those who have castrated the spirit of celebration and implanted their version, will be KICKED OUT, it is just a matter of time.

    on the other side, We His people are celebrating on our own, our tears and laughter, our success and failure…. Life has become a play.. some time tragic some time comedy….

    With this comes a in born response that we should not allow the people who are pulling the strings from behind or from front.

    When this whole cosmos is surviving without GOD, why the fuck ashram cannot survive without Amrito or rajneesh!

    And if cannot,,,,,than dears ones God died after creating the universe, and Osho died after few thousand sermons!

    Rest is human business. no mystery, just a game of credit and debt, products and customers.

    And this too, we can celebrate…
    after all, we the ordinary sannyasins are not so thankless to our master!
    God bless all those, who feel again to sit in Buddha hall and dance and sing..and yes..look for Miss and Mr. Right.

  16. Shahriar says:

    “Yes celebration and gratitude is the real message
    and Rajneesh is living Osho’s message”

    I cannot say that Rajneesh is living Osho’s message. All that I can say is that Rajneesh is living HIS understanding of Osho’s message. How can he (not him particularly, but in general) understand Osho’s message? To do that you need to be enlightened, and when a person is enlightened, it is no more Osho’s message, it is on his own authority. So let us not say “The buddha said”, rather, let us say “I have heard the buddha say” or even better “my understanding of what the buddha said is that…”. But let us not say that so and so is living Osho’s message because that is not for us to decide. All that we or anyone can say is that they are living their understanding of Osho’s message and not the message itself…just their understanding of the message. (which may be wrong. So to assert that they are right would be exceeding the limits. It would be arrogance. Because how can you say whether your understanding is right or wrong? All that you (and me) can say is that this is my understanding of osho’s message, but it is NOT the message itself. Because to understand Osho’s message we need to come to the same point to which Osho came. (which by the way is not “hard”, people have a tendency to turn the master into a God (which he may be. lol.) and make it seem as if it is impossible to reach to that point. So it is okay to worship him, but please do not think about becoming him. (of course, your own unique perfection, with your own distinct individuality and expression.) Oftentimes the tendency is to say that it is okay to talk about enlightenment, but please do not become enlightened otherwise our egos will be hurt and we will not be able to tolerate it. You, enlightened? Someone who is alive just like me? flesh and bones? A contemporary? How can my ego accept that a contemporary is enlightened? Otherwise what have I been doing here?)

  17. Shahriar says:

    I believe that this needs to be posted again:

    “When this whole cosmos is surviving without GOD, why the fuck ashram cannot survive without Amrito or rajneesh!

    And if cannot,,,,,than dears ones God died after creating the universe, and Osho died after few thousand sermons!”

    “And this too, we can celebrate…
    after all, we the ordinary sannyasins are not so thankless to our master!
    God bless all those, who feel again to sit in Buddha hall and dance and sing..and yes..look for Miss and Mr. Right.”

    I wonder how the tibetan monks would receive osho’s jokes, his outrageous style and his acceptance of sex? Either they will call him the devil, or they will be able to understand that he is bring the new yoga for the new age! (what does Osho say? that is just far out baby!)

  18. Satya Deva says:

    I put the above points, bearing in mind the context of “Celebration” where Kranti made his “I see Osho” comments.

    At the heart of this is how to view/cope with/understand suffering.

    Some, including myself, would say that “celebration”, with its connotations of greater or lesser degrees of “self-indulgence”, is out of synch with the examples of suffering I’ve given above.
    And that such a response is rather shallow, to say the least.

    But perhaps it’s merely a question of words:
    Substitute ‘compassion’ for celebration in these contexts and it fits much better.

  19. Kranti says:

    Satya Deva.. What I meant is deep moments ..natural expression of crying and sadness..Osho always says crying us beautiful …sadness has a depth..and you come out of that fresh.. I didnt mean crying and sadness without awareness ..I didnt mean a emotional drama here.. Since we all are sannyaisns and we had come across Osho saying these i did nt eloborate

  20. Kranti says:

    satya Deva

    Just to add often people cry or become sad only as a emotional dram and for the purpose deriving an idenity out of it.. have seen people always being unhappy to earn pity from others..

    But once i started understanding Osho i saw these emotional games in me and others.. then at some point when tears or sadness came i allowed it or sometimes i didnt ..But there was no need to use that for idenity purpose or gaining some one’s attention..

    Think tahst what Osho says ..Let me know whether there is another way of seeing it..

  21. Kranti says:

    Celebration need to be spontaneous like this.. ( Oshobob will like this )

    A young couple have been trying for ages to have a baby, but with no success. Finally they decided to go to the doctor with the problem. After a detailed interview he suggests that maybe they should not make love every day, to avoid love becoming a routine. They should make love only spontaneously. Not as if they have to do it, but only when they are possessed by it.

    “You have to find the right, spontaneous moment,” the doctor says, “when you feel the moment is right, do it.” A few months later, sure enough, the woman is back and the doctor confirms her pregnancy. “May I enquire if my advice was of any help?” “Oh, doc,” she says, “it was terrific. We were having a romantic candlelight dinner with french wine and soft music, and suddenly our hands met. We were looking deep into each others eyes and we both knew, `this is it!’ We simply threw off the tablecloth and made love right on the table.”

    “Amazing,” says the doctor. “Yes, it was great,” she says, “the only sad thing about it is, that we can never go to that restaurant again.”

  22. Prem Abhay says:

    Kranti I respect what you have said about your personal circumstance and your personal view of what Osho means to you. It is just that this “to me” can easily slide down the slippery slope and end the way it seemed to in your article: you ended up saying it is not your interpretation that celebration is the core of Osho, it is just the simple truth of the sacred flower. This is where danger lurks. We start of with the clear understanding that it is “to me”, and then end up saying that it is “from Osho”.

    In a later post you say that your understanding of celebration is much more then “festivity or dancing alone.. It is in the acceptance of life and being centered in silence”

    Here you come back to “to me”. The trouble is that you then take this core single aspect of celebration and introduce “being centered” and “silence”. This is also to be respected in the same way you expressed your first viewpoint about what Osho means for you. However as you did in your first article it is entirely possible that you will extend this “to me” to “from Osho”.

    This “to me” changing subtly from subjective personal understanding to generalised objective truth is the psychological pattern that Osho sannyasins have repeated to create the idealized extremes that create tension and argument. Of course for a lot of people this slide is done without intention and without realizing it: unconsciously.

    This is where Jayesh and Amrito are as well. If you read Jayesh or Amrito, they are very clear about the fact that what they are doing is coming “from Osho”. However it can only be “to me”. Of course if Jayesh or Amrito want to claim enlightenment and start teaching, they are free to do so. If they do, the thing to remember is that then it is “from me” not “from Osho”. With Osho the only possible position to hold with any level of credibility and intelligence is “to me Osho means….”

    Sw Dyam Anurahg

    I missed this post of yours..So i am replying again..

    You said ” ..Kranti is a hypocrite just shedding tears for the public and supporting the Resort No Celebrations Rules ”

    It took 17 years for this hypocrite to even share something in a forum.. So there was no ‘ public ‘ for me.. The only world I knew was Osho..

    To me what Osho meant by celebration is not about celebrating birthdays and anniversaries.. His definition of celebration seems to be different .. So resort having few celebrations or not having celebrations is not linked to me talking about Osho way of celebrating life in all aspects

    I do understand your point..It will be great to have these celebrations as they are opportunities to get together and dance ..Surely.. But why they stopped celebrations is again can be a big thread..

    OR we can share our thoughts on why PUNE do not have specific celebrations.. My understanding is they want everyday to be celebration not waiting for specific days to celebrate.. which is in line with what Osho spoke about

    Why they celebrate a new year is something I dont know.. I personally dont celebrate new years also ..

    Please share your thoughts on this..

  24. Kranti says:

    Abhay

    I liked the last post of yours.. I do accept that the danger is always there .We can slip easily from ‘ to me ‘ to ‘ Osho meant this ‘.. Infact while drafting that post i did delete quite a few words which tilted towards generalisation

    But let us ask ourselves again this together …

    What osho meant by celebration.. Please let me know what you think.. I asked the same question to Sw Anurag also..

    let us forget the conflicts we had in the last few threads and see whether we can have healthy sharing..

  25. Kranti says:

    Satya Deva.. It took me few pots to arrive at what you are pointing.. I am sorry for not understanding your point rightly.. thanks for highlighting this sharply ..

    So let me express this again

    I see Osho where i see someone natural..not artificial or dramatic..

    I never meant it to include me seeing Osho at the cost somone else’s misery.. Then it mean being sadistic ..isnt it? No i didnt intent to express something like that ..

    So it is a just basic natural aspect of crying & being sad without supression.. I didnt mean anything extreme..

  26. Shanti says:

    I can not believe anurag is not missing anytime to promote his own guru rajneesh, when does it ever stops.
    As far as celebration in the ashram goes.
    Everyday at 10:45 is dancing in buddha grove… have you been there?. and there is dancing party every other day. And there is sannyas celebrations once a week. I do not know what you mean when you say there is no celebrations.
    I never dance so much in my life as when I am there. and never dance with so much joy and beauty in my heart.

  27. Satya Deva says:

    Kranti, thanks for looking into this and responding.

    I see what you’re getting at, although I still think it’s a fine line at times!

    For example, grief is perfectly natural, it has its place (as long as there’s attachment to the ‘lost’ person or even thing), but I wonder whether you’d still “see Osho” there? It can look pretty “dramatic”, can’t it?!

    Likewise anger, which can easily be the shadow of grief…
    And which, unless chronic, can also be perfectly “natural” – and extremely “dramatic”!

    I guess you’re discriminating between the “natural” and what we might call the “pathological”, including what I think you’ve identified as the ‘self-indulgent’.

    But I’m a bit uneasy about you ‘seeing Osho’ in emotional states, as long as those concerned are practising awareness at the time…

    Because that probably kind of excludes most of humanity, doesn’t it, which seems to me far too exclusive, ‘elitist’ even, frankly.

    Who are we to so judge others anyway?

    Anyway, enough about others, the real ‘test’ is of ourselves for ourselves, isn’t it?

    To quote a great song by Ron Sexsmith, ‘Travelling Alone’:
    “It’s one on one,
    You and your soul…
    And nobody else….”

  28. Satya Deva says:

    And one more thing (lol!)…

    Really just to summarise above:

    There’s the simple, natural, spontaneous, healthy on the one hand…With emotion allowed, expressed and contained…(maybe feeling’s a better word?)

    And the self-indulgent and/or pathological, on the other…With emotion exaggerated, melodramatic even, and often used to manipulate…Invariably arising from deeply-held unhappiness….

    Ok, so maybe sannyasins (and other people in ‘personal growth’/meditation) tend to be more aware of their inner processes than others (although I do wonder about this at times!), but everyone suffers and I think invoking ‘awareness’ as a special criterion for judging these things leaves us in grave danger of becoming rather too ‘special’ in our own eyes, rather ‘elitist’.

    Rather ‘insufferable’ even!

  29. Kranti says:

    Sayta Deva

    I am greatful to you for putting this in the right perpective.. You have explained a deep insight so effortlessly .. I do agree .There is a thin line

    May be if i say i see Osho only in positive aspects of life then some how it feels incomplete.. its not what Osho says about acceptance & celebration.. may be i tried to be complete there and in that process said something which is not deep.. somewhat shallow

    Thanks for making me understand..

    So the point is seeing Osho in anyone who is natural and in their naturalness and at easeness ,not really in the misery / suffering of people.

    by the way I also heard Osho describing anger as beautiful outpour of energy. He quotes Jesus’s anger at money changers..

    Infact I do sometimes enjoy the anger of people whom I love as an expression of energy without thinking they should not get angry at me..

    Grief is more complex.. I certianly can see Osho when somone is grieving

    Just to add

    I was listening to another advaita teacher few days earlier where he differentiated between having pain and suffering ..

    he was saying while pian is natural , suffering is not..suffering belongs to EGO as it resists pain and consequently suffers apart from its other self created imaginary suffering ..

    Thanks again

  32. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Dear Kranti

    I read what you are saying and now see another person present when you speak about Osho

    I feel your love is real and your concern is real now with these posts of yours

    I am also one of those who go to Poona and have not understood why the Resort managment is so controlling and dominating on every aspect of the freedoms of individual sannyasins which again i have to mention Rajneesh brings out

    Rajneesh used to say to me that there should be hundreds of thousands of sannyasins dancing and celebrating Osho in every yearly festivals

    Rajneesh feels that if the inner circle just withdraws their interference into sannyasins lives then Poona Ashram can be the greatest melting pot for all sannyasins again

    Actually you must see that today most new people are coming from Russia. This is mainly due to all these new sannyains that Swami Arun and Swami Rajneesh have brought into sannyas and they all go to Poona

    Rajneesh is always saying that Poona Ashram is beautiful to all he meets in Russia. He is only against the mis-use of Osho mandate by the inner circle

    Arun and Rajneesh both only give core Osho meditations and do not charge anything at all
    And now see the point that Arun and Rajneesh are both banned by the Resort.

    So again it is clear that Resort do not want the truth or beautiful sannyasins but only want to dominate and control the whole sannyas movement like the Vatican

    If you see with an open hear and clearly without any prejudice like Shanti types then you will see that we need people like Rajneesh and Arun back
    We need Keerti and Satya Vedant back again

    They are true lovers and devotees of Osho
    and we should love and accept them and undertstand what they are tring to convey to us all

  33. Kranti says:

    Satyadeva.. I will share something in detail via email. It is a related topic. Please give me your email id.

    My email id is -krantidevapatha@gmail.com

  34. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    And i forgot to add that we want Prem Joshua and Milarepa and Miten and Premal and Harideva and Giten and Dhyanum and alll the banned lovers back

    And a new inner circle that is answerable and accountable for all their actions that affect the sannyas movement ” in the spiritual context ” as Rajneesh has clearly pointed to again and again

    What is the Mandate given by Osho. And what is Spiritual Considerations and what are Mundane Matters should be debated on

    Sorrry again, but i can see Rajneesh to be the clear voice in these matters and unless i can hear other clear voices on this crucial matter, i will have to use his name to make these points clear

    I too feel that the Osho Mandate should be discussed and some final solution and decision should be made otherwise it is moving in the direction of Sheela fiasco

    Dhyan Anurag

  35. Shanti says:

    If you have something to share, some truth of your own Anurag, then share it. But bringing Rajneesh every time to back up your words becomes a sort of promotinga catechism propaganda. Like “see my guru is right”.

    He open my heart to Osho and i thank him for Osho

    He only ask me to read Osho book and do simple meditate only for free prices and not to be cheat by high charge Therapy . Also Arun come Russia and many many friends Love him for Osho to feel

    They are Love Osho and i know many many Russia come to Osho now for Radjneesh and Arun
    Radjneesh come with Osho love to Krasnoyarsk Siberia and Ekterinburg and Bailkul Siberia Novosibirsk and all about Russia travel

    So i love Radjneesh and Arun for Osho

  38. Kranti says:

    Swami Dhyan anurag

    Actually we want everyone back..There is no question about it.. I heard Osho saying this about sannyas

    ” When existence has chosen you to be here who am I to reject you for taking sannyas.. So I accept everyone and give sannyas ” Thats was the level of acceptance from him..You knew him more intimately than people like me who have never seen him

    But Osho did threw out people . Didnt he?…You can talk about compassion for eternity..But what about handling people who create problems for others inside the commune ?

    So it seems vision and the application of it in daily life perfectly , seems to be different

    Few months ago me and Shantam started posting in this forum with a view to achieve something positive..We almost came close to requesting for a celebration in january.. We belived somehow if we can bring people together some majic can happen and everything will be alright

    We were told we were being too naive.. But even today I dont think so.. people coming together can make a huge difference ..Keerthi did create a Invitation here through sannyasnews

    So it is not a question of rejecting / hating anyone.. Before Sw Rajnessh went on the rampage against Osho i didnt have anything major against him.. The attack on Osho seemed inappropriate & highly contradictory to me

    As we discussed more and more we realized the issue is in idealogy and also applying Osho vision in day to day management .. PUNE seems to be uneasy about a religion developing around Osho..

    It is not very different from another Osho center where Bhajans on Osho are allowed where somone who is interested only in Osho vision but not the personality of the master not going to feel comfortable. They may feel the place to ‘ creepy ‘.. what we can do then?.. Can we reject the feelings of that person and say if you are not comfortable please go somewhere else ?

    Increasingly those people will come.. people who want to do Dynamic meditation but who dont have anything to do with Osho as a person..

    While we seem to take it for granted that heart oriented people are acceptable and they need to be comfortable anywhere the same logic is not applied for people who are more interested in Osho vision and not Osho at all.

    Will you accept a place like Oshodhara and their enlightenment certificates and standard steps for reaching enlightenmet

    But we cant digest because it is PUNE where the every tree leaf and every brick and every bamboo is related to Osho.

    I am not here to speak on behalf of other sannyasins.. I am no body compared to all the sannyasins who dedicated their whole life to be with Osho .. So please dont misunderstand me. This is a forum and we are exchanging so many ways of looking at Vision and other aspects .. I prefer to take a view .. Sometimes i feel uncomfortable on what am doing here just by posting .. Will it make any difference to anything positively .. I dont have answers ..

    My love for Osho keeps me here ..But sometimes we take opposite views on things and it seems we are against this or that etc..

    Deep down it is painful for me to argue with a Osho sannyasin.. I dont want to do it .. I do it all the time in office , in the market place.. But When i see / speak to a Osho sannyasin honestly I just want to hug and dance ..nothing else

    ” I hope some day you will write for our Viha Connection magazine.”

    Dhanyam.. That day will be a beautiful day in my life.. If i can share something like that .

  40. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    OK Shanti
    i will have to re invent the wheel for you

    What Rajneesh says is also resonating in me.
    It is also my personal feeling and now you have a chance to answer

    Why is Prem Joshua and Milarepa and Miten & Premal Osho musicians banned

    I want to hear from your intelligent point of view
    why music is dangerious and which Guru Trip these Osho lovers and musicians are on.
    This answer will be the true test of your credibility

    If you cannot give a reasonable answer
    then please shut up and get lost.

    Dhyan Anurag

  41. Kranti says:

    ” Why is Prem Joshua and Milarepa and Miten & Premal Osho musicians banned ”

    This one i would like to know.. I did send a mail to pune also asking for clarification on this point …as I couldnt digest a Prem Joshua can be banned as I love his music the most..

  42. Shanti says:

    Anurag, Kranti, the issue is not weather we are interested in Oho or not… our beloved master is not more with us, his teachings, his words, are here in our hearts, in the ashram, etc. But he is not. That is a reality. In hurts my heart that it is so, but what can I do? He decided to leave his body and dissolve into existence.
    So to be attached to him as if he was someone we can go see is absurd, as a human being, and more so as a sannyasin, if we are interested in our own evolution.

    I have said many times I do not like the word resort and the yuppie groove, and Amrito not listening to anybody…
    But I do not want to be associated as a sannyasin with people adoring an image of a master who encouraged us live our own life and be free. That is not what sannyas is to me. So, if in the ashram they are not celebrating his birthday… what is the harm? what is the big deal? do we celebrate birthdays of dead people?

    We do not need excuses for celebrating… do we?
    I think it is stupid to have Holy celebration days…
    they decided to take them away… I am not going to cry over that, I´ll move to the next dancing party. My being alive is enough. i do not need pictures of Osho everywhere, he is in my heart.
    What is all this stupidity with adoration of the master. I consider myself an Osho devotee. But I am not devoted to HIM, I am devoted to what he woke up in me. I am devoted my own meditation consciousness.
    I was with Osho since 1984, and I saw all kinds of discrimination being done around him. From who could sit in front of him, to who could stay in his ashram and commune. Well it was HIs commune, he could decide who he wanted inside or not. I always understood that this was a game to be played in HIs terms, not mine. So, now the inner circle does the same. what do you expect?

  43. Shanti says:

    One last point. They not banned. Neither prem joshua, not milarepa, not premal. they are just not allowed to play openly devotional songs of Osho. Milarepa was in the ashram last year. We has a nice chat. I still do not get used to his being bald.

  44. Kranti says:

    Shanti.. Just to clarify In my last post i reffered to a get together type of celebration for all people..Not Osho birthday celebrations..Even i am not personally comfortable celebrating birthdays of Osho..

  45. Kranti says:

    ” One last point. They not banned. Neither prem joshua, not milarepa, not premal. they are just not allowed to play openly devotional songs of Osho. Milarepa was in the ashram last year. We has a nice chat. I still do not get used to his being bald. ‘

    Swami Anurag you got the answer..Me too..

    Thank you Shanti.. Oh! I was awaiting a reply from Pune on this for days ..

  46. Kranti says:

    Shanti can you also tell me whether all this hue and cry about banning is real or very exagerrated.. for example Anurag was thinking Milarepa was banned..But you have seen him there .. So it is not true..

    Similarly lot of this banning stories might not have been totally true.. I am not saying it is not happening But the news flows about banning & the reasons seems to be an exagerrated and in lot of cases untrue.

    ( I do apologise to people who have genuine reasons on why they should not have been banned .)

  47. Satya Deva says:

    Last final word from me here (for today anyway, enough!):

    Osho said he (and presumably, any ‘fully enlightened’ being) is/was vast…he said he contained all, even Hitler etc…(Even the ‘pundits’ (lol) on Sannyas News!).

    But that’s the vastness of never-ending time and space, isn’t it? Total silence…Death and Life as one mystery…(or so I’m told, I wouldn’t know personally). And on a human level, pure joy, infinite compassion?

    To really “see Osho” is surely to go within and find that reality, anything outside is at the most a pretty pale reflection?

  48. Kranti says:

    ” people coming together can make a huge difference ”

    Was thinking about this particular line.. Osho talks about the taste of meditation and bliss and how we lose touch with that taste. .. may be if we can get together and dance we will gte back some taste of what people are longing for.. Just for Osho’s sake..

  49. Kranti says:

    ” he said he contained all ”

    Did He ? When it came to mundane issues?

  50. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti states ” officially ” ( Resort Managment )
    One last point. They not banned. Neither prem joshua, not milarepa, not premal. they are just not allowed to play openly devotional songs of Osho. Milarepa was in the ashram last year. We has a nice chat. I still do not get used to his being bald.

    This is a Total Lie
    We have met Prem Joshua in dlehi and we also know that Milarepa is banned from the Resort for singing Osho songs in Russia. Also Miten & Premal are banned and have been asked by the Resort not to publish any more Osho songs.

    And who says the Inner circle has the ” Authority ” to bar them from singing the Osho songs that were created by them for Osho ??
    Shanti you want to justify this insane act of the Inner Circle and here Kranti is happy to have got
    ” the Official Answer ” from the Shanti Resort

    Such Pure Bullshit and Misleading Shanti who appears she is the official Resort spokesperson here

    Blind will lead the Blind

    Dhyan Anurag

  51. Shanti says:

    Kranti. Some time ago Anthony gave a very good analysis on why people were banned during osho´s time and after, when he said, worked in the welcome center ( the official banning Office).
    My own experience is that many times people are not allowed to do something inside and they banned themselves. I do not remember the name of the man who used to lead heart dance. He had been doing it for years. when the changes begun to happen he was asked not to sing songs that were directly addressed to Osho, and not wear the mala outside when leadihg heart dance. he refused to do so and went to lead heart dance, at least for a while, in Mogul gardens. He exiled himself from the ashram.
    Milarepa made many devotional songs and was asked not to sing them in white robe or sannyas celebrations. So he sings them in osho centers, other communes, but not there. So, he goes every so often just to meditate and being in the place. he chose not to be exiled.
    When Neelam left the inner circle she was not banned. She actually decided to leave herself. But later on she gave an interview to an Indian newspaper speaking against the administration and then she was banned. So Keert and satya vedant followed her and I am not sure if they are banned or self exiled.
    Priya was banned for supporting the law suit against OIF.

    But this was common in Osho´s time, as heraclito.
    I saw shyam singa, One of soho´s first disciples, i saw brett the adviser of the ranch, shivamurti, Deeksha, Satya bharti, Laxmi, Somendra, mallika, gambira, Little siddhartha, Yoga nishant. Veeresh and Samadhi,for a while. all very well known people, therapist, early disciples.
    this has been an ongoing practice all the time.
    Miten and premal, wre banned diring the winterseason , I think was 2005 , beacuse they went to sing to Rameshj Balsak ( I am not sure that is the right name) in bombay, but it was only for that time.

  52. Shanti says:

    Anurag. i am not the resort spoke woman… read my posts!!
    I was with Milarepa!!!

  53. Shanti says:

    It is strange that If i say something positive about the ashram ways i get defined ” as the resort spokesperson”.
    Meaning i can not have my own mind about it. If i say something negative… then it is ok… I am being objective… this is bullshit.
    So much fanaticism exasperates me!

  54. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    QUOTE:
    One last point. They not banned. Neither prem joshua, not milarepa, not premal. they are just not allowed to play openly devotional songs of Osho.

    This sounds like the official Resort statement
    from the mouthpiece of Shanti’s Ashram

    A great Authoritative answer
    and firm support of this Inner circle decision
    coming from Shanti’s Ashram in Barcelona via Poona

  55. Shanti says:

    I have no intention of escalating in a derogatory innuendos with You anurag.
    I have stated what i believe and know. if you do not like it it is your trip.
    Shantam, darling where are you? did you get my mail?

  56. Kranti says:

    Shanthi.. thank you very much for the details. I was in need of that info as that was one point that had been disturbing me.. Thanks for puuting things in the right perspective

    Sw Anurag… When SAhanti has seen and chatted with Milerpa in pune itself then why are you not believing it .. I think it is wrong to say someone is lying like that.. Thats degarding ..

    There is huge difference between getting banned to do specific things and getting banned from the place itself.. Think both type of banning is being generalized as ‘ banning ‘ and it gives an impression that all the people are getting banned from the place itself ..

  57. Kranti says:

    By the way Shanthi .. that must be ‘ Ramesh Balsekar ‘

    He left the body few days ago .. I have read his book ‘ Conciusness Speaks ‘

    If you are interested you can see the website

    http://www.rameshbalsekar.com/

  58. Shanti says:

    yes, that is the guy

  59. Kranti says:

    Sorry the book i read was ‘ Peace And Harmony
    In Daily Living ” .. I got it wrong

  60. Kranti says:

    Are you aware he was CEO of big bank in India.. Think after retirement he moved deeply into spirituality and awakened ..

  61. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Oh la la…Shanti Kranti
    Such a nice and cosy chatting place with such warmth and love and comfort you all have here
    Like a nice quite place by the fire sipping congnac
    and spiritual talks in the background with the perfect feel good factor setting in here
    Sleep well my friends and pat the backs of the Inner Circle baboons and there will be great rewards for you both waiting at the Resort Zoo

    Dhyan Anurag

  62. Shanti says:

    Good night dear. say hi to rajneesh, amitabh, meera and everybody sharing the laptop on rajneesh´s med camp.

  63. Kranti says:

    med camp is not medical camp i suppose .. Only in medical camps they cut the d… out of compassion ofcourse

  64. Shanti says:

    Perhaps that is why Anthony never came back. if rajneesh would have offered to cut my tits I´ll be out of the picture too.
    what a great zen master. We need more butchers like him!

  65. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Anthony ran away because you were chasing his pants desperately and now you are chasing Shantam’s pants and trying to take on Kranti’s pants

    Regarding your tits being chopped off by Rajneesh. Guess they are hanging now and he will leave these old hag tits to drop off on their own accord

    So do not worry and enjoy idle gossip as you will not get that special treatment from Rajneesh

    Dhyan Anurag

  66. frank says:

    hey anusrag,
    why you so angry?
    like i said,get out there and grab some nice pale hippychicks before the doppelganger cuts your dick off!

  67. Shanti says:

    Anurag you are getting obscene! and a bit off the line.
    But I am sure you can rationalize your behavior as ZEN. the way your master rajneesh does.
    That is the ultimate justification. decor violent insulting behavior a zen stick for you own good!

    That is just lack of honesty… or self knowledge.
    But it is not suprising that coming from Rajneesh folds you can make such rude sexual remarks to me… But don´t worry i will not leave. My skin is thinker than Anthony´s.

  68. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti Yes we all know that your skin is thick
    like an elephant.
    Hope that all the rest of your body parts do not resemble the same thickness.

    You talk about your own tits bering chopped off
    and i reassure you that they will be safe and you call that rude sexual remark ??

    What a Joke we have Shanti here

    Dhyan Anurag

  69. shantam prem says:

    Dhyan Anurag,
    Don’t tell to Shanti that her skin is thick.
    Not her skin yet, but i have seen her photo few minutes ago, She seems to be as fine and refined, from inside out as Silk or Satin.

    Any way, if you read the posts of me for the last few months, i am one of the most vocal critic of the resort admistration.
    But the way, Rajneesh and people under his influence are going seems to me not less than militancy. it is almost like Talibanism of sannyas movement.

    When people cannot hear and bear criticism and come on a very derogatory language, it shows also that home work is still undone, in a hurry they have put the nice clothes without cleaning first the po po!

  70. Gyan Prakash says:

    Hello sannyas news people

    I am from Punjab Sw Gyan Prakash
    Am old sannyasin of Osho and very good friend of Swami Gurudayal Singh who was laughing buddha Osho Poona days

    Am reading all talks about Osho samadhi case and about Rajneesh Swami.
    Gurudayal Singh was great friend of Rajneesh Swami who helped him many times for medical hospital bills and Gurudayal talked many times about him

    Gurudayal was told to leave the Ashram as he was too old to do anything there in the ashram but he was still guarding all his life Osho gate. Still they asked him to leave the ashram.This Amrito and group removed this Old Osho lover and every joke was Gurudayal Singh time for Osho talks.
    We all listen about Rajneesh Swami in Punjab and have invited him to come anytime here.
    We all support his idea to open the Osho samadhi and not not to allow the people in Poona to take control of Osho ashram

    We are from Punjab and strong people here
    as Osho always says Punjabis are heart and strong people, and we are all supporting Rajneesh Swami here and agree with him.

    Swami Gyan Prakash

  71. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shantam

    I agree with you and appreciete your comments and posts as fair and balanced views
    So please read all Shanti posts and you will see her behavior and biased and loud and judgmental
    So i am just settling this matter with Shanti
    But i am glad that Shanti is not a thick elephant and that she is privately sending her photos to all the group guys to get their attention and win their opinions
    with sex appeal.

    Dhyan Anurag

  72. shantam prem says:

    Anurag,
    She is not sending her photos, i have requested through the pages of sannyasnews.
    Because she is not on the facebook,but if you are, i will add you on my friends list, your co companion Meera is also on my freinds list.

    Listen dear, We are representing Osho and nobody else, so our responses towards other sannyasins must be very dignified. Other sannyasins are HIS PEOPLE.
    He is not in the body, may be he is having unending honeymoon with Nirvano up in the blue sky, but here on earth, WE ARE HIS PEOPLE.

    Once i was asking this question to Amrito(canada) who is a fan of Arun ji, the same question i ask you,” If i abuse Osho or Rajneesh, when your buttons will be pressed more.?”
    Feel the question and than answer.

  73. shantam prem says:

    So Shanti ji,
    Now you know, i have got your mail.

    I may not be as beautiful as you are, so what?

    And yes… i may not be as successful as gurus in the Bazaar, but am sure, not less intelligent than them.
    And this i can say for many many of our fellow travelers on Osho Airlines unlimted.

    Thanks
    shantam

  74. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    If Shanti also responds with dignity to the important issues raised by Rajneesh then i will also respond with dignity.
    Just read all Shanti ugly reactions and judgements and abusive behavior on this forum against Rajneesh.

    So i feel that i need to defend Rajneesh also
    as he too is a sannyasin and is a devotee of Osho
    since 29 years and an honourable loving and sinciere
    friend to all sannyasins.

    Just admit that he has made many valid points and thousands are supporting him as the voice of the silent majority of sannyasins.

    Rajneesh is also ” HIS PEOPLE” and i cannot allow people like Shanti to attack an innocent man here.

    If you have read his book you can feel his experiences
    and the truth in them and also see that he has devoted his entire life for Osho and his Vision

    So please take this matter to Shanti and those who are spreading lies and mass propoganda against this individual and lover of Osho

    I am sure you will see i am not reacting but responding to the living situation on this forum where one man is targeted by the vested interest and the ones i power.

    Osho was targeted also and here Rajneesh is being targeted and one day you will see why i am attempting to defend Rajneesh

    swami Dhyan Anurag

  75. Shanti says:

    Anurag. You do not defend what rajneesh says. You defend Rajneesh. Because you love him. and it is understandable. I do not love the guy. I can see the flaws, the deception… but that is my thing. If you come like pentecostals parading propaganda in favor of this guy I will say NO. do not push him down my throat. I am sorry, But NO.
    You keep insiting “rajneesh is such a beautiful lover of Osho…”. NO, I think he is exploiting sannyasins, deceiving new sannyasins, inexperienced sannyasins for his own glorification..
    I ´M sorry i say NO, I do not need anyone to represent me..specially not him. It is shameful that He calls himself a sannysin.
    That is my stand.

    And then you end with megalomaniac prophetic statements: “and one day you will see why i am attempting to defend Rajneesh”

    I said NO.

  76. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti

    I am not pushing Rajneesh down your throat.

    You are pushing your opinions and judgments
    against Rajneesh down others throats

    Be clear that you are pushing your opinions
    i am defending against your judgements and agressive behavior

  77. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    and Shanti

    you are judging Rajneesh all the time
    and Osho says do not to Judge others

    Stop playing the Judge
    who knows all and everything
    and i will leave you alone.

    Anurag

  78. Shanti says:

    I think he is exploiting sannyasins, deceiving new sannyasins, inexperienced sannyasins for his own glorification. pretending to represent us all: when in reality he is representing himself.

    Do you think I can be impartial about this?

  79. Kranti says:

    Swami Anurag . Can you first save / defend Osho from Swami Rajneesh then you can proceed to defend Rajnessh from others..

    Because Osho is the basis and without him there is no reason why we should be in this forum

    Osho’s image has been seriously damaged by Rajneesh… Even Osho’s biggest critics had not spoke the kind of things rajneesh did.. things like Osho used sannyasin labour and that poor man conditioning stuff etc etc… If Osho is enlightened then how he would have past conditioning? He questioned every aspect of Osho including Osho’s awareness / awakening

    So my humble request to you guys..Save Osho first

    If Osho doesnt need your support then Rajneesh also will not need

    Not only Osho was reduced to a cheap guru after money but ZEN was also reduvced into some kind of slaughter house concept with all these dick cutting and Tits cutting..

    What a show we are having..

  80. shantam prem says:

    Anurag,
    i have already repeted few times, let rajneesh people create rajneeshnews or similar portal.
    Atleast here at sannyasnews, let Only Osho be the boss and let His people express their wishes, inspirations and visions about ashram and globally.

    Neither JAyesh is sacred here, nor Rajneesh.
    We are doing critical analysis of the whole situation and you should also participate and the readres too, but don’t defend anybody here other than Osho and his vast interptations.

  81. Kranti says:

    And I am not mature enough to celebrate the cutting of my d…

  82. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    who says that he has only new and inexperienced sannyasins around him ??
    and even that new sannyasins are blind is your judgement again here.

    Do you want an extended list of all the old sannyasins since 1964 who are with Rajneesh today ??
    these old sannyasins are with Osho since his Acharya days in Bombay and even from Jabalpur days ??
    Jabalpur OshoAmritdham Ashram
    Swami Anand Vijayji is the oldest friend of Osho and has the first Osho Ashram in India in jabalpur
    He always invites Rajneesh to have his meditation camps in his ashram in jabalpur.
    Swami Puri of Jabalpur since 1970 days
    Swami Ganga knows Osho since 1964 khajharao days has invited him to khajharao for camps there.
    Swami SatyaTeerth the oldest sannyasin in Kutchwara and in Japan has Rajneesh celebrating Osho birthday this year in Kutchwara ashram.
    Swami Bhram Vedant of Gujarat is the most senior sannyasin and has invited Rajneesh for 19 january celebration this year.
    Swami Swabhava ambassador to Osho India is friendly with Rajneesh and he has visited their ashram in Gujarat few months back.
    Swami Purnanand,
    Swami Siddhart in Gujarat disciple since 1974
    Swami Siddhart of holland since 1974 bombay days and Vitesha of 1974 years and this list is endless of the old and sinciere sannyasin who are meeting Rajneesh and even offer their own ashrams for major important date celebrations. The list of well known sannyasin is long

    Rajneesh is loved by all sannyasins and you can see the photos of all his camp on the website and recognise all these loving old sannyasins.

    Only you are infallable and wise here and know that all these are stupid and inexperienced new people.

    NO these are the new people
    who have Open Eyes and Open Hearts

    and these are the facts and not blind judgments

    Anurag

  83. shantam prem says:

    Shanti Ma,
    I think he is exploiting sannyasins, deceiving new sannyasins, inexperienced sannyasins for his own glorification. pretending to represent us all: when in reality he is representing himself.

    Do you think I can be impartial about this?

    Osho’s one books is called, ” Dekh Kabira Roya”
    means ” kabir is crying after seeing”.

    It is not just he who is exploiting sannyasins, many others are doing the same, inside the resort gates and outside.
    Few are doing this by claiming enlightend( Sarlo’s guru rating website is full with such names) and few are doing this in their intellectual capacity, because they are sitting at White House sorry Krishana House.

    And we the bystanders, the people who built the foundation of the whole show are standing on the foot paths, looking amusingly or helplessly, how the guys are taking ” Pretty Woman” for a ride!

  84. Shanti says:

    Propaganda. so rajneesh has like what?… 10 followers. thanks for the whole list…

  85. Shanti says:

    besides. there might be lost of gurus, people who were osho´s sannysins. I do not have a problem with that. But if a bozzo comes to tell me that he is going to represent me… well.
    Besides this is the only one using the confusion of names to self promote.
    the others are the dhara people. Just clowns with handkerchiefs in their heads. but they are making their own bussiness, they are not ” freedom fighters” for “my own good”. who use violent threats for “my own good”. Who self-promote saying they will wake me up, without me asking. That is just pentecostal mentality, mixed with zen rationalized violence and deception.

  86. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Kranti

    I read Rajneesh and the rolls royce matter and agree that what he says is correct on this matter.

    If you read the beginning of the thread then he is answering this matter from the standpoint and view
    of the statement that Osho Made

    ” that the sannyasins were merely contributing their labour and nothing else.”

    Rajneesh was addressing his concerns about TODAY

    that TODAY this issue is important
    that NO respect or regards for sannyasins
    in the commune creation process is given.
    And the source of this is Osho himself.

    Osho promised that no single person will ever hold Power over other sannyasins again after Sheela.

    And today with the so called vaugness and secrecy Mandate named Inner Circle allows the misuse of these powers is directly related to Osho

    Transparency and Accountability and Freedom
    Just 3 words would have sorted out this corruption

    Sure Osho had conditioning as he points out that even Buddha Mahavir Krishnamurti Ramakrishna and all master have their conditioning
    Are you suggesting that Osho is the infallable Pope and has no conditioning whatsoever and the only perfect Master ever ?
    Every commue under Osho failed and sannyasin paid the price. So Rajneesh is clearly pointing these issues in the interest of sannyasins whi are again coming together and says that these misitakes should not be repeated and the new Master should be simoply a friend and also Accountable and Transparent in the material world of things that relate to the lives of sannyasins who donate and give all their money to Gurus in the past as in the case of Bhagwan
    and his rollys royces.
    And Hail Rajneesh fo rhis guts and clarity.
    Osho would be proud that his sannyasin
    is not a blind puppet and has his own voice.
    Rajneesh is a total devotee
    with Open Eyes as he says.

    Dhyan Anurag

  87. Kranti says:

    My God! This thread is becoming a Vote bank for Rajneesh!

    Anurag.. Is that an oldies asociation or what .. Couldnt they let go of the need for a Guru yet ?

    I was referring to that earlier days Video of Osho where Osho was talking about Awakening and the guys around Him were doing rituals to a cow instead of listening to Osho .. Think those are the guys Anurag is reffering to..

  88. Kranti says:

    How come Osho will behave according to conditioning if he is awakened ? Then what is the use of awakening?

    ” Are you suggesting that Osho is the infallable Pope and has no conditioning whatsoever and the only perfect Master ever ?
    Every commue under Osho failed and sannyasin paid the price.”

    My God! Anurag Those things are not because Osho conditioning .. but because of sannyasins conditioning.. What a reversal of logic..?

    So you are agreeing all the things Rajneesh said about Osho .. So you and Rajneesh think you are better JUDGES of Osho himself..?????????

    just few posts earlier you were asking Shanti not to JUDGE Rajneesh.. But you and rajneesh have so many judgements aboput Osho .. and thats ia right???????????

    Dear O Dear ! What to say .. Let me take a break.. I can stand Osho being damaged like this..

  89. Kranti says:

    ” Hail Rajneesh ” ????????????????

    I leave this to frank and Shantam and may be oshobob

    Is he successor of hitler or what ?

  90. frank says:

    a man with a lunghi
    and his anusrag
    and a few cow-worshipping hindu grandads
    threatening to cut baboons` dicks off

    scary movie!

  91. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti is the bozo here and brainless
    and actually a boooboooos only.

    Who says Rajneesh is representing you ??
    Don’t get over your head Shanti, even a dog would not represent you. Infact all the time bitching on this forum do you even have a lover or a boyfriend ??

    And these few names you call 10 only
    are lovers and wise devoted sannyasins of Osho

    And with these 10 are thousands of sannyasins who also go to these ashrams which are also not recognised by the Poona Team of Baboons.

    Do you want to now Judge these 10 names
    and call them bozzos also ??
    Just Try Please and you will know what happens

    Rajneesh has a sense of humour so he laughs
    but try and attack these 10 as boozos and you will see how soon you will run from this forum to Africa

  92. Shanti says:

    Ok. I surrender… Hail Rajneesh Mein Fürer!!
    Frankie is this real… are you making this up?

  93. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    So Kranti

    Can you say why Sheela was placed by Osho
    with total power ??
    and why Osho blamed Sheela for the destruction ??
    Was he blind to place Sheela with total control ??
    Just answer clearly this Sheela placement and i will see your opinion about Osho and his understanding.

    If 5000 sannyasins suffered this destruction
    and only Sheela is to blame
    then ofcourse Osho is wise and infallable !!

    Or you will say it was a Device of Osho
    to make the commune fail

    Lets hear why Osho placed Sheela ??

    Winter is coming soon in Europe. With this will come flu.
    it seems at sannyasnews, it has already come.

    Anurag and Meera,

    i think you know this proverb, ” Intelligent enemy is much better than stupid friends.”

    When Osho was in the body, whole world was making jokes and satires about Him, sannyasins were enjoying this without getting offended.
    As a 22 years old sikh boy with turben and Mala in 84, i myself have faced thousands of questions and it was pure fun.
    I am sure both of you have missed that phase and surely you are living it now with Rajneesh.

    Why can’t you understand that Shanti is walking with Osho since early 80`s. it is her right to feel offended when someone comes forward and behave like a saviour.
    Kranti may have joined Osho after leaving His body but people like him will prefer to walk their walk alone rather than getting a borrowed satory from someone’s else energy.
    People like Him amd Shahriar have also the right to criticise or appreciate someone as per their discretion.

    And don’t forget Osho is not in the body, Mr. Rajneesh is. Let he defend himself from the slaught of his fellow colleagues from Poona 2 days.

    inbetween enjoy the energy and meditation camps of Rajneesh. WHo knows, he may go again in silence.

  95. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    and about blessing to cows around Acharya Rajneesh

    do you remember that Osho Posed
    before a Bajaj Scooter in Poona even after his return from America as the new Zen Master ??
    Posing for photographs with a Bajaj Scooter ??
    Smiling with his hands on the throttle
    of the Bajaj Scooter, what Zen is here for you ??
    Atleast the cow is a mliving being also.

  96. shantam prem says:

    Don’t surrunder just ignore, Liebe Schatz!

    In Hindi there is a proverb, ” converted ones say more ALLAH ALLAH than the Arabs!

    When one reads the comments of rajneesh and co. One can say clearly, in the world of Osho, Taliban version was missing. Now it is complete.

  97. frank says:

    poor old anusrag.
    seems to have had his sense of humour chopped off along with his dick.

    picture it:
    osho the rolls royce guru,of america,one for every day of the year,gets back to india.
    now he`s got a bajaj scooter
    -but still sportingthe same big grin —–priceless.
    absolutely priceless.
    one of his best moments in my opinion.
    i dont know if you call that zen.
    i call it timing.

  98. Shanti says:

    Here´s my theory:
    Anurag is RajneesH himself, so is Satya.
    HE IS just posting under other names.
    How on hearth anurag has such a fast access to rajeensh famous invitations. he had it written down just in case?
    He follows the same line of arguments on Osho as Rajneesh has … as if it comes from the same mind.
    satya on the other side. made some comments on the other thread that only someone would have made about oneself.
    there you have it…

  99. frank says:

    oh hell.its all too confusing.
    i am either going down to the pub,or the himalayas.
    either way,i could be gone for a very long time.

    nice to meet you and goodbye.
    and may your god go with you.

  100. Shanti says:

    Anurag- rajneesh I have a question for you.
    Are you a sannyasin? because you seem to be so much against Osho… I am more confused than frank. Ok I´ll go to the pub

  101. oshobob says:

    Osho Sannyasnews Active Meditation

    Stage One:
    Post new lead article at top of page by a sannyasin or friend of Osho. Be totally sincere.

    Stage Two:
    Post comments relating to lead article in a generally civil and neutral way. Try to sound educated and responsive.

    Stage Three:
    Divert topic and return it to previous contentious subjects of other threads. Take off the gloves and start the bar room brawl between posters. Keep punching, and don’t let up. Really go for it!

    Stage Four:
    Relax. Remain still. Celebrate.

    Stage Five:
    Go to next lead article and start vicious cycle again.

  102. Shanti says:

    great bobbie… witty… you are taken my admiration too

  103. shantam prem says:

    Shanti..you are in the pub….
    If you drink too much, get a taxi back home!

  104. shantam prem says:

    Is your lap top is also with you in the pub?
    I can go sleeping with peace.

    I hope tomorrow will be a new day, without gurus but with seekers…
    what a joy it is to seek God and also girl/boy friend.

    I am thinking to tell the church where i go for meditation that atleast once in a month, they should have Mass for those who are not seeking married bliss but just love, how so ever momentry it may be¨!

  105. Satya Deva says:

    Kranti // Oct 20, 2009 at 4:19 pm

    ” he said he contained all ”

    Did He ? When it came to mundane issues?

    Don’t see your point here, Kranti…

    Please ‘enlighten’ me!

  106. Anand says:

    Thank you Shanti, you fought a good battle against the LUNATIC himself!
    Rajnessh sucks the blood out of new and innocent sannyasins in Russia.
    His language is foul, not enlightened. His behavior just copying the mimics
    of Osho, just a joke. But there are a lot of gullible people out there and he has some financial resources.
    The arrival of Rajneesh copycat put the level of this forum to the gutter. He is the like the swine flu, but now how to get rid of his bullshit?

  107. Prem Abhay says:

    Kranti since you asked I will share my personal view about the core of Osho. I disagree that the essence is celebration. My understanding is that it is like saying the core of Osho is zorba. My path was initially strictly Buddhist, including vipassana treats that likely nearly drove me crazy. I felt the need for more physical exercise – to try and create more balance. This is why I started practicing yoga, which eventually led me to India and yoga ashrams. At one ashram a yoga Swami was teaching Osho dynamic meditation. A few of us from another ashram went there and we all had a blast to say the least. This is why I went to Pune. Of course I had also heard rumours that there were some delicious female seekers there too. Anyway what I found was a foundation of the Buddhist doctrine of meditative awareness (including a few Buddhist statues) and also the concept of expression of our energy – whether that be dancing, or flirting, or celebrating. This is what if found: ZORBA THE BUDDHA!!!

    This Zorba the Buddha can still be found at the Pune resort. It is to me the essence of Osho’s philosophy and his vision: a life positive spirituality; yes to life yet also yes to our deepest questioning. The funny thing is that if it was not for the health and safety issues that I continue to raise, the style of functioning of the resort actually suits me just fine – and in this way I would probably say that I have a perspective similar to Anthony’s. I personally am not bothered about the Samadhi even though I spent a year in silence working there. I personally am not bothered about the pagoda being demolished either.

    When I came out of many years in silence – which for me was still my personal ZORBA THE BUDDHA journey – I tried to make a contribution. One thing I found out was that people thought I was stuck in some self-pity trip and just wanted attention. I also found out about a lot of health and safety issues. I tried to fix things and could not be bothered here repeating what happened afterwards. If the chronic health and safety issues were addressed with even a little bit of common sense I would have dismissed people like Keerti and Swami Rajneesh has been as cuckoo as you average run of the mill exploitive fake Indian mystical loony. Just like Anthony I was happy with the general direction of the space. Although now that I think about it, even of the health and safety issues were addressed, the turning into an expensive resort is something that I would have strongly objected to also. I do not mind if there is a fancy restaurant and a 5-star hotel, but there should also be a healthy thali and allowance for seekers on a budget (the vast majority).

    From my confrontations with the establishment is started looking and asking around. Also with the help of this site I have come to understand that there were so many other types of genuine Osho sannyasins, and that they had either been ignored in rejected. Now that I know this I find the situation at the resort even more disgusting. I am absolutely appalled by things like the destruction of the pagoda, not for me but for everyone that considered it personally sacred. What makes it worse is that I now realise how I was led to believe that what was presented was right and true and fully in accordance with Osho. I was led to believe that people like Dolano and Maitreya were black listed loonies. Only recently did I find out how Dolano was an old sannyasin that looked after the swans in Lao Tzu, just like I did for a couple of years. I am appalled, am disgusted, am utterly sickened and outraged: the lies and slander and hyprocisy and filth, and also the injustice to Osho himself. Worst of all is to know that the mainstream Osho movement is still alive and well. I can go to Osho.com and it looks like heaven. I can go to Pune, stand near the front gate, and watch all the maroon seekers going in and out, blissfully unaware of the reality. Of course I would have to watch out for Dhyanesh and the security team if I did.

    I arrived in Pune late 1999. I realize now that it was at the end of the Pune2 Ashram era, and at the beginning of the Pune2 Resort. This is probably why everything seemed to fit so nicely for a while, then I started wondering, and in the end became banned.

    I cannot get any healthier than this Kranti. I am not interested in dialogue like Dhanyam is. I am not interested in Shahriars proposal that a guidebook be framed that limits powers, insures transparency and accountability, includes dialogue with the masses, and has a watch-dog.

    OIF, the Inner-Circle, and Management Team India should be held to account for their injustices. They should not be allowed to come to a compromise now that the heat is on them. I am not interested in appeasing negligence and criminality.

    Gosh I was reading the rest of the posts in shock. Finally Anurag makes a very clear point that addresses Kranti’s concern about Swami Rajneesh’s criticism of Osho. Why so many communes failed and so many sannyasins left destitute (at The Ranch and elsewhere)? Swami Rajneesh is offering an explanation, and also states that he would not allow this to happen. It is an immensely important question, and needs to be fully answered before any sane government would let the Osho movement flourish again – especially because the tragedy of The Ranch is unfolding again on a massive scale under everyone’s noses.

    Kranti // Oct 20, 2009 at 4:19 pm

    ” he said he contained all ”

    Did He ? When it came to mundane issues?

    Kranti, take a look at this again and see how absurd your question is!

    Osho said he contained Hitler, Genghis Khan etc., ie all the ‘evil’ as well as all the ‘good’.

    Of course he did, what sort of ‘enlightenment’ would it be if any element of the human psyche were excluded, as being somehow ‘wrong’ or ‘not very nice’ (lol)? Or, too petty, too “mundane” for words, even?!

    Containing all – and free of all, surely?! Utterly disidentified with the lot! Free of fear, free of the fear of death….

    Now, how on earth (or in heaven!) can he not ‘contain’ what you term “the mundane”?!

    You know…
    ‘Hitler? Oh yes, he’s in me all right, mate! (Nice bloke when you really get to know the guy, very misunderstood, in my opinion.”
    “Petty daily concerns of Mr Wilkins (or Mr Nasrudin), the filing clerk from across the road? Oh my god, no, I’m above all that stuff, I only go for the VIP’s, I can’t be bothered with lesser mortals. Does my head in , it does. Below me, in fact.”

    But maybe you mean something else? Let me know….

    Meanwhile, I’m in the mood to continue a little…just to clear my thoughts, not that I’m pretending to say anything new or ‘special’…

    Why is such a man so loved and revered (‘worshipped’ even by some)? Because he emits that aura of freedom, that completely clear inner space, that supreme at-easeness…so powerful, so wise, yet so utterly simple and innocent at the same time…

    I recall those were my first impressions of Osho when I met him for the first time…

    (And as we know from experience these same qualities are also perceived as somehow threatening to others, seeming to create hatred and distrust in them, so such an individual is almost certain to be ‘crucified’, in one way or another, isn’t he? Maybe even in ourselves…).

    But Osho (and apparently, Jesus) seemed unafraid of their enemies, unafraid of death itself.

    Why? How?

    Surely because they must have already experienced ‘death’, in psychic (psychological/emotional) terms – and found it to be an illusion?

    Leaving them totally free to be whatever and however they chose…

    Strange thought, eh? We’re ‘on a spiritual path’ (if such a thing exists) in order to ‘die’ before we die….

    Now, 1.40 am here in London and that really is “enough for today!” (LOL)

  110. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Now Shanti is playing Sherlok Holmes
    elementry my dear Watsona

    And Rajneesh is also Meera ( you forgot her )
    and Anurag and Satya and Abhay and Amitabh and and
    looks like the voice of many here huh ?

    /////
    And NHere´s my theory:
    Anurag is RajneesH himself, so is Satya.
    HE IS just posting under other names.
    How on hearth anurag has such a fast access to rajeensh famous invitations. he had it written down just in case?
    //////

    Elementry my deary Shanti
    I know these matters as i have joined Rajneesh
    Mystic Rose tour this year and also attended the jabalpur camps last year.

    Shanti feels it is not possible for so many people to have similar views or objections to the Inner Circle.
    As she is right and all are wrong so all are Rajneesh himself positing from 5 different locations

    Shanti feels that Rajneesh is giving her opinions attention which she is looking for in all the group male members here.That Shanti is the only true old discilpe of Osho here who understands and protects Osho.

    She looks desperatly lost
    and in need of attention from males members
    who accept her views.

    Anurag

  111. Kranti says:

    Swami Anurag.. I am not going to sit on higher pedestal and statrt judging Osho and his actions.. Especially on the basis of what happened around him over which he could not have had total control.

    But for your question mu understanding is this

    What we think about Sheela is how we see using our mind. I dont think Osho would have seen her with same eyes.. Common !! Atleast for a enlightened guy like Osho sheela would not have been very different from others atleast to startwith.. then there is no such things as Compassion ..

    So there is no question of Osho wrongly placing her in power and all.. Once the damage is done he took action based on options infront of him.. What else he could have done..

    Osho talks about taking actions / deciding.. He says once you put the right leg forward then you can only put the left leg.. Now you can not say i will take right leg second time also.. This is mean to say there are consequences for human actions and they follow a normal cause / effect

    So you can judge Osho based on what he did and What he didnt..

    What you said about Scooter thing amazed me.. Like Frank said Anurag you did not see the lighter side of that .. then what about the pose with Wine glass in His hand.. ? Common Anurag.. Rajnessh has made you very serious..

  112. Kranti says:

    Frank..As usual the scooter stuff was good one

    But this time Oshobob beat you with His active meditation stuff.. Super thinking..

    Man! I will not let go of thinking and opt for No mind if i have such creative thinking ability .. Seems people trying to get to no mind had very uncreative mind including me .. What you think about that Oshobob ..

  113. Kranti says:

    Abhay

    I simply loved the first half of your last post.. I almost fainted and saw a different Abhay.. Great to know what you psersonally liked / like..

    But the second part of your post is bit judgemental.. ( apart from the health & safety issues for which i take your word.. You have facts and we never had a conflict there )

    Even I also judge..Not denying ..I am not trying to preach here .. But the banning issue needs to be dealt with on case to case basis.. Generalizations will not do.. the there is banned from resort cases and banned from doing specific stuff cases.. It is bit more complex.. We will not go anywhere by generally shooting against banning..

    I answered that Osho commune failure stuff.. I dont think we can make those kind of judgements and link all the failure to Osho..

    If thats the case Krishna , Jesus and Buddha failed.. After all Buddha couldnt convince his guys in not creatinga religion out of him..He couldnt convince them to ‘ Be a light unto themselves ‘

    Finally you say ” Swami Rajneesh is offering an explanation, and also states that he would not allow this to happen. It is an immensely important question,”

    I DONT THINK SO . He cannot explain away what osho did.. How can somone be so sure about future ? Thats shows utter lack of respect for Life ..So it is not an important question for me..

    Do you guys meant to say all those guys failed ? the failure is that sanyasins and followers . It is not the failure of awakened beings ..

  114. Kranti says:

    Satya

    ” he said he contained all ” ..Did He ? When it came to mundane issues? ”

    It is complex again.. May be once again i am not sharp/good enough with words in explaining deeper things .. May be i simplified the question too much as i was getting diverted by Anurag posts

    What i wanted to say is containing everything is one thing and taking action on mundane issues is another thing where duality plays a role..And you have to choose.

    It is more like what you said next ..

    ” To really “see Osho” is surely to go within and find that reality, anything outside is at the most a pretty pale reflection? ”

    That containing everything is only potential stuff of awareness.. Actions is the menifested / duality part ..So Osho clould have done actions which didnt go down well with some people..and that is natural

    My point is outer actions are pale refelections of the Inner whole being.. You cant judge a awakened being by actions .. Well you can… as far as those actions are concerned but not as proof of whether he is awakened or not..

    Am i sounding alright? Of late i was too much into this Neo Advaita stuff also.. But I am more grounded in silence by understanding few things from people like Adyashanthi and Kiloby

  115. Kranti says:

    Dhanyam

    Thanks a lot. I am honoured..I sent an email from personal ID

  116. Kranti says:

    ” I disagree that the essence is celebration. My understanding is that it is like saying the core of Osho is zorba ”

    Abhay… ” Celebration and ‘ Zorba the Buddha ‘ are the same.. NOT ” Celebration and ‘ Zorba ”

    Why you split Zorba and equate to celebration

    Unless you have different definition for Celebration..

    Osho had a wholesome meaning for Celebration.. he never equated Celebration with Outer or Zorba . By celebration he meant acceptance of everything.. Zorba as well as Buddha

    I am slightly nervous & uncomfortable when quite a few sannyasins here equate Celebration ( Osho way of Celebration ) with Celebration of birthdays or specific festivals or Zorba alone..

  117. Kranti says:

    I really loved this description of Osho by satya Deva although i wouldnt like to define him but just for the sake of Love for Osho..It is very Beautiful..

    ” he emits that aura of freedom, that completely clear inner space, that supreme at-easeness…so powerful, so wise, yet so utterly simple and innocent at the same time…”

  118. Satya Deva says:

    Yes, Kranti, he ‘taught’ at least as much through his being, as through his words and actions, didn’t he?

    That presence…

    And ‘no one’ actually there!!

    A living Zen conundrum…

    What a mysterious joke! (No wonder Mahakashyap laughed his head off!!).

  119. Satya Deva says:

    Kranti:
    What i wanted to say is containing everything is one thing and taking action on mundane issues is another thing where duality plays a role..And you have to choose.

    I get you, Kranti, and I agree.

    One of the things that has become clear to me (and many others) over the years is that an ‘awakened’ person, a great Master even, can make mistakes, they are fallible.

    That doesn’t detract from their inner purity of consciousness (as far as I can tell!), it simply reflects that in the outer life, where the mind is brought into play to assess situations and act accordingly, errors can be made.

    I find this refreshing, rather than depressing or ‘scary’, as it tends to makle one more self-reliant. How about you?

  120. Kranti says:

    ” I find this refreshing, rather than depressing or ’scary’, as it tends to makle one more self-reliant. How about you? ‘

    Satya Deva.. Thats is actually the point i was trying to make.. It is the same with me.. Infact this is where i was able to see the world of ‘ Becoming ‘ and ‘ Doing ‘

    Once we realize that the ‘ ME ‘ is just functional and not the real idenity it puts us at ease and whatever you do you do it based on the situation. There is no effort to become this or that and an activity you do in the world is not linked to your inner being..

    I am not desparate to prove myself to myself by trying to do things rightly or perfectly because there os no such thing as ” ME ‘.. It is just a bunch of conditionings ..and an illusion of someone sitting there trying to be in control..

    Although i am in love with Osho i wanted to understand this Inner being thing in other words from other teachers.. So I listened a lot to adyashanthi , Mooji or Scott Kiloby.. I wrote to few of them and received loving responses..This helped me to understand that everyone is talking about the same ..Only the way it is presented is different..

    It is little scary initialy to understand I DONT EXIST ..I am getting used to it at a conceptual level..But what they call awakening is even more deeper at Non-Conceptual level..

  121. Kranti says:

    Infact the more i listen to other teachers the more wonder at the beauty and poetic expression of Osho about everything.. He is too vast.. But poetic..leaves lot of gaps which you need to fill ..unlike others who try to bring everything in words.. Thats is alo required for sometimes..when we try to understand something logically to the end..

  122. Kranti says:

    ‘ That presence…

    And ‘no one’ actually there!!

    A living Zen conundrum ‘

  123. Satya Deva says:

    Whatever else I may or may not experience in my life, whatever evolution does or doesn’t take place, I know that something in me will never be the same after encountering this man.

    This was originally clear during my first days of dynamic meditation and listening to his talks (while resting, exhausted, on the floor of the old London centre!), but was confirmed soon after meeting him in India.

    He even said as much in one of the earliest discourses I attended, after I’d sent him a poem I’d somehow written a couple of days before (and I was not in the habit of writing poetry!).

    Not that it was only meant for me, of course, but it felt personal anyway:
    “Now, something of awareness has entered into you, now you will never be the same” (or words to similar effect).

    Don’t usually feel inspired to write like this here, I suspect it might possibly be down to the nearby presence in north London since yesterday of Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi),the great ‘hugging saint’, who’s around for three days….

    Wasn’t sure I’d go, but now feel I somehow ‘must’….

    Thanks for the dialogue, Kranti, it’s been good. All the Best to you!

  124. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Now places 10 postings in a row
    All confused with part answers and part question and part deflection of matters without any direction at all.

    And is very elated that Dhyanam is going to now place his wisdom and understanding in Viha magazine.
    What a drama and Kranti on the stage is confused.

    Keep the posts coming and in this confusion the Inner Circle laughs and the smoke screen is made for them to escape the pressure.

    Great job Kranti

    Just seen this…
    Problem for me with these teachings is that they tend not to adequately address ‘human development’ issues and I reckon they can be even dangerous if we’re not ready enough, mature enough on a basic body/mind level.

    Kranti:

    I think I know what you mean, Kranti. For me, for example, I’ve found the teachings of Barry Long (Australian Master (believe it or not! lol) very valuable. Not that I can go the ‘whole way’ with him, but he’s shown me things I never found with Osho.

  126. Shanti says:

    Anusrag… as frank affectionately calls you, stop picking on Kranti…

  127. Anthony Thompson says:

    I would like to respond to abhay, due to have had the pleasure to read an honest intelligent post. That is not related to water issues.

    I agree with your opinions regarding the workings of the resort. But what is important to me is to state that it is not a deviant from the original source but in the contrary an extension of the way things were done under osho´s regime.
    It Is Osho´s design. Hiding truth was used always under his knowledge. In a way rajneesh is right, although what he proposes is just a cunning trick to sell his second -hand merchandise.

    I remember having a long conversation with Michael Barnett ( former Somendra, a very close early therapist disciple) and we both agreed that Osho was a manipulative fellow, but there was, sadly, no other way to get done or accomplish whet he did in any other way.

    I do not know if enligjhtement puts you beyond good and evil, but certainly osho chose that position openly,and in a way, he can only be accountable for what he stated. H

    He said he was amoral. So he twisted facts, invented stories about buddha that were never in any scripture, banned people who made too many questions, or bothered him, twisted facts to fit his vision, etc.

    But his impact in human consciousness has no parallel in history.

    Thereforei, I find it hypocritical that people like Keerti or Neelam, tearing down their cloths for the way things are done pune , when they were instrumental in applying that way for years. i saw Neelam banning people who she did not like.

    Now this rajneesh fellow is just a third rate imitator, using his position to get someplace in the book. i do not blame him, you can not “bend over” for ever. at the end, every disciple wants a piece of the cake.
    It is just natural human psychology

    ” Don’t usually feel inspired to write like this here”

    Find new ways to get inspired Satya Deva.. You really helped me to see some aspects more deeply..

    Yes.. I do agree on the view you have about other teachings. Infact there is this crticism on these teachers that they simplify Advaita ( Neo Advaita ) too much and all.. But to me I will rather listen to someone who simplfies Advaitha rather than listening to someone who adds unneccessary complexity and concepts ..

    Thats why I view those three teachers as simple and beautiful..Very direct

    By the way do let us know of your Amma experriences if you choose to go..

    Thanks.

    I explained this earlier.. I Live in India and by the time i sit infront of system so many posts had come. I reply to everyone..

    Anurag if you read all the posts which are not addressed to you confusion will arise .. But you cant project your confusion on me..

    As far as posting style is concerned I have my own style..I dont write 400 line essays thinking that i am addressing all the problems of humanity

    Relax Anurag..

    Dont worry about Dhanyam request.. at the most i will post some news / jokes I know.. i will not post anything related Rajneesh..

    I am curious to know whether you were present during that COW ritual in that Video ” Bhagwan The Movie “? Do let me know..

  130. Kranti says:

    ” invented stories about buddha that were never in any scripture, ”

    Ya..he agreed also that he has talk using the language of different paths to get people attention

    Essentially he was not concerned about 101 paths..He used to communicate what he wanted.. Now that we know what Osho wanted to communicate I am alright with it.. I am laughing and thanking Osho in a way .. When people refused to let go of their way of seeing what else he could have done? Thats why HE is a master not just a teacher.. He got the message across finally..

    Even now given a choice for some people you will find more COWS than sannyasins in PUNE

  131. Kranti says:

    ” I think we are now in the resting stage of oshobob sannyas news meditation. time for a new thread ‘

    Someone needs to take the initiave..Shanti it may be your turn..

  132. Dear Kranti

    You have listened discourses of many fake advaita teachers.

    It is high time for you to start meditating.

    What about having a real taste of meditation???
    My suggestion for you is to attend at least one meditation camp of Rajneesh

    and experience real meditation and celebration.

    love
    amitabh

  133. Dear Anthony

    you said “Now this rajneesh fellow is just a third rate imitator, using his position to get someplace in the book”

    Swami Rajneesh never had an power position in the Pune Ashram. He was an simple sannyasin and was more interested in meditation than in power games of the ashram.

    So where does the question arise about using or misusing Power.

    love
    amitabh

  134. Kranti says:

    Thanks for the beautiful suggestion Amitabh..I will do that when the time comes.

    I dont restrict msyelf from learning from other teachers also and thats why i mentioned them…

    By the way have you ever listened Adyashanthi or Mooji or Scott Kiloby..They dont teach anything fake.. They simply point about the falsity of ME ..thats it.. If you had not listened to them so far please do so and let me know ..

  135. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Anthony does not know anything about Rajneesh
    He left his family when he was 16 years of age and never went back home.

    He found Bhagwan when he was 18 and from then only devoted his life towards Bhagwan and his inner journey which makes it 30 years on the path.

    All those who remember him say he was always alone and never with any type of group

    His family collectively is worth over 6 Billiion US$
    and if he wanted power or postion or any place in the world it would be very very easy for him anyday.

    He has always been rebellious against his family and even laugh at their wealth openly.
    His famiy is known to have donated millions to hindu spiritual organisations in india and abroad and always asked Rajneesh to leave Osho and his image behind and they would gladly help him.

    Rajneesh has never taken even a single rupee from his family and always worked independantly abroad on his own and earned his own salaries through creative design work. Whenever he worked abroad he earned international awards and a huge income as he is creative which he himself attributes to his meditation and to Osho

    He has also donated most of his money towards his love to other sannyasins out of his own personal earnings and salaries.

    He has never earned anything for his meditation which he says is out of his love and not for sale.

    He never charges for any meditatioon cams as he is against therapist who only make it a profession.

    Now here is a man who has attacked hs own family for their greed and loves a simple and ordainary life.

    Walk in his shoes and see if you would leave a collective family worth 6 billion US$ and we will know your real worth

    Talk is cheap, just walk the walk and walk your talk
    Rajneesh does exactly that

    Anurag

  136. Kranti

    I have heard discourses of Adyashanthi and Mooji.
    They only teach fake.. because they thnselves are fake.

    but it is good in a way for you.
    because when you will meet Swami Rajneesh first hand.

    Then you can clearly see the black and white (provided you are open)

    love
    amitabh

  137. Dear Anurag

    thanks for such an informative post
    but i wonder whether people are really interested in knowing truth?

    It is much easier to ridicule Swami Rajneesh and escape the effort to meet him or at least read his book.

    I hope they attend Rajneesh’s camps and wake up

    love
    amitabh

  138. Shanti says:

    well, well we have the pentecostal evangelicals back… promoting their bozzo master rajeneesh. No opportunity should be lost to make some propaganda for him.
    What is the need to advertise him so much? if you have seen the light… jut go stay there. do not bother us here.- we really want to discuss something else than the “doppelganger” megalomaniac cheat of the red lunghi.
    Honestly go promote your guru somewhere else.

  139. Kranti says:

    Swami Amitabh

    What you mean by ‘ fake ‘ ? Can you please help me to understand.. Those are simple teachers who point to the illsuion of the ‘ ME’ from different angle. What is the fake thing you see in them?

    I think there is no harm if we spend few additional posts on this. after all we had spent 100 posts for body parts cutting concepts ..

    They dont teach anything else.. They dont teach any methods which are harmful. They dont ask for blind surrender ..

    Please enlighten me..

  140. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti this forum is about Osho and his sannyasins
    and you are always behaving as you own this forum
    and calling Rajneesh a cheat and other names.

    If all the members read all Shantis attacks on Rajneesh it will be clear that she is jealous and egoistic and wants to dominate this forum
    So i wil continue to place the facts of Rajneesh here and you are no one to tell me to leave.

    I was reading all the previous treads where there was continous mis-information and slander and judgments against Rajneesh and i never said anything, so i have decided to clear up all these attacks against this beautiful sannyasin.

    It must have been fun for you all to go unanswered in the previous threads against Rajneesh and now you are sweating and hiding from the facts.

    Shanti i will settle your judgmental mind just by continious hammering
    to your blind and egoistic retorts.

    Anurag

  141. Shanti says:

    another Zen master? I thought with Meera and rajneesh himself offering to cut people´s dicks for their own good was enough. but now we have a new pentecostal evangelical who wants to hammer and promote his guru… great!
    keep it coming.!

    -Lets share some facts about rajneesh. he uses the name “Osho Rajneesh” in his webpage to catch by the means of name confusion people who think it is Osho

    -He fishes in sannyas waters promoting himself as someone who would care about the sannyasins, the sangha, not like the dead Osho who did not care.

    -He says to be devotee, but criticizes Osho whenever it is possible..,. and convenient

    _ He mimics Osho´s hand gestures and body language… but prefers the acharya look.

    _ he is parading India with a poorly written book. at least he should have got a ghost writer. the book is horrible written.

    - he talks about love , but when his buttons gets pushed he turns violent, abusive, and make obscene remarks about other people.

    _When confronted with the previous situation he rationalizes his behavior saying, he is just being ZEN… and joking… “people are too serious”. They should just take my aggression as love.

    should continue?

  142. oshobob says:

    So here right at the end we have Anurag and Amitabh coming back for a few last quick licks at Kranti, who penned the lead article about his love and celebration for his master Osho. They lay out Rajneesh’s dad’s financial portfolio for all to see, showing us just what the Bare-Chested One has given up for his spiritual purity. Impressive. Jesus could never say that story, that’s for sure. Father Joe was just a poor carpenter, mom Mary at the bottom of the Jewish social stratum, and the Stud-Man himself — the Holy Ghost — just disappeared from the household completely after he was through “fulfilling his holy duty” with Jesus’ mom –never to be seen again. I think we can be pretty sure that J.C. never designed any watches, although there was a mention, now that I think of it, of some sort of “last watch” in The New Testament, wasn’t there…? And too, there’s ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’, which Nick the Greek turned into a boffo bestseller…sex and spirituality — mix those two together and you always have a good equation for controversy, which is what basically everyone is looking for anyway…

  143. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti just bullshit againand again
    Have you read why he uses the website name
    Osho Rajneesh and in his answer to Shantam in previous threads ?
    Have you read his own reply about his actions that appear similar to Osho ??
    And all these judgments have been answered to by Rajneesh himself
    And how about your cheat statement now that it is revealed that his collective family is worth
    6 Billion US$
    Have you dropped the Cheat of Rajneesh
    as it sounds silly now ?
    Cut the crap and see your jealousy pen for all to read.
    You are a waste of Life so go get a Life
    Anurag

  144. Shanti says:

    WQhen I use the word cheat is not related to hismoney. I know he comes from a wealthy family and thet he made money a s a watch designer for sweiss company.
    Use the word cheat beacuse he is after his self promotion and pretends to be there to ” help” other people. He is just using my master for his own personal ego trip.
    It is not a big deal that he does it all for free… If i had that money i would design for free ( I am a designer).
    All the answers he gave were just rationalization sof his behavior. that is all.

    _ Another fact. If he does not care about promoting himself, Why did he send his brochure to the whole list of meditation centers from osho.com?
    Mmh? answer me that?

  145. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti what a ridicilous question

    He is an Osho disciple and his people sent out all the email about the launch of Tears of the Mystic Rose
    to all Osho centers and Osho lovers as this is an Osho Book by an Osho disciple

    The book is a love story between a Master and Disciple and all Osho disciple books have been promoted earlier by Osho poona and they are afraid for Rajneesh book on his journey with Osho

    And why do you think that the addresses came from Osho.com as all these addresses are openly available anywhere in Poona.

    Infact i stated that 80% of the Osho centers are banned and not recognised by the Poona Resort team and even those email adresses are available openly.

    So Osho.com has very few on their list.
    Oshoworld has many more than Osho.com
    and there are hundreds of email that Rajneesh has received himself and i would ” guess ” that he has a mailing list of over 6000 email or more

    Anyway far more than Osho.com as they have only listed their own approved centers and the rest are banned or unapproved centers.

    Another question is how Inner Circle did they get the right to send circular propoganda against Rajneesh which is using Osho data for their own mass propoganda against ine man>
    And Rajneesh sad himself laughingly that his website suddenly jumped after this Vatayana letter against him went out worldwide.
    He is waiting for the Inner Circle to take some action against his open defiance and rebellion against their borrowed and false mis-used authority.
    And they are cowards and silent now.

    Anurag

  146. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    and Shanti
    please address the important matter of the Mandate
    left for the Inner Circle by Osho
    and their Mis Use of this Mandate

    And what in your informed opinion are spiritual matters and what are mundane matters.
    The Inner Circle is only basic managment of day to day mundane matters

    And how about Amritos lies –
    the promise on the death anouncment for Osho guidlines the next day story ??

    these are the real questions Rajneesh is raising
    and you are all stupifired and unable to answer and throw smoke on these issues that are really serious and expremely important today.

    Now even i challange you to answer these real questions

    Anurag

  147. Dear Shanti

    No one is advertising Rajneesh here.
    In fact, he does not need any adveristment any more.
    People like you who are jealous of Rajneesh’s inner realization are doing enough negative propaganda against him.

    I am just stating the truth, which is my responsibility as a seeker on the path of truth.

    Why we all spread words about Osho and His discourses???

    Because Osho words are helpful for seekers. Same is true with Rajneesh and his meditation camps.

    If someone writes positive about Rajneesh then it is not to advertise for him but to help the fellow travellers on the path.

    But I understand that it might be hurting you, as you have missed meditation in this life.

    My suggestion to you is that change this negative pattern, otherwise you might miss in next life too.. Please Do not sow wrong seeds for next life.

    Try reading Rajneesh’s book again and If you get the courage then attend his camps.
    There is nothing wrong in missing..
    but one should start the journey again

    love
    amitabh

  148. Dear Kranti

    I do not discuss about moozi or adyashanti here as it is off track from the topic.
    If you really interested then you can study about Poonja ji, madhukar, gangaji, andrew cohen books to know the whole set up urself.

    One insight which I can share is – when we read words of a buddha then it takes to different dimension.
    which is bound to happen as those words come from no-mind.

    I suggest you to read words of these fake adavita teachers and Rajneesh book “Tears of The Mystic Rose” and know the difference urself.

    love
    amitabh

  149. shantam prem says:

    Dhyan Anurag knows all about his new mentor, the enlightened one. Mr. Rajneesh and the way i hear it seems, the ray of truth but only truth has come on the horizon…

    I have one sincere question. May be one of His fellows can ask him. It is not about just sex,
    I am excited to know so that history of masters get a new dimension, Whether Swami Rajneesh as per the status prefer only the Fellatio or as a matter of respect or taste or as reciprocate enjoys “69″ too.

    He is young, smart, gurus like pop stars make many women a bit of Mooney,and he is from the school of Osho, so it is a very relevant question.

    As far as this fellow shantam is concerned, i am sure enough not to steal any idea or title from our Master’s treasures, so once the final preparations are done, title of my first book will be-

    “Sixty nine ways to inner awakening”
    (69 is one of them)

    I hope Rajneesh, our fellow traveler will not steal this poor man’s title. So as a matter of record, i am the first one to use it here at Sannyasnews.

  150. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shantam

    This is the first question that i love.

    And will ask you to direct this question to Rajneesh himself and from what i know if him he will really enjoy this question

    Rajneesh always answers each email directly as he says that it is his way
    to answer openly and directly so please email him

    Am curious about his reply.

    his email is
    rajneesh@oshorajneesh.net

  151. shantam prem says:

    OK dear,
    I copy the above post to our class mate Rajneesh, who has become a professor of a kind.
    His answer will be also here for gossiping with my other intelligent yet spiritually unemployed friends.

  152. Kranti says:

    Swami Amitabh & Swami Anurag

    You had not answered my question why Rajneesh attacked Osho so badly..

    He says Osho reacted out of Poor Man’s conditioning , He was money hungry and Sucked sannyasin labour because he couldnt get other US labour which is cotsly and what not..

    Please just tell me whether you agree with Rajnessh on all things He said about Osho.. I will not not ask anything more

    I am not defending Osho here.. HE doesnt need the support of an ordinary guy like me.. Anyway e has left the body… The quesions is how do you agree with such bad remaks and judgements about Osho

    It has completely degraded Osho and questioned the fact that Osho was awakened and concious..

    I am not saying Osho was infallible.. But he was a beautiful human being

    This is how Satya Deva sees Osho

    ” he emits that aura of freedom, that completely clear inner space, that supreme at-easeness…so powerful, so wise, yet so utterly simple and innocent at the same time…”

    See for yourself..

    If you want I will copy and paste all thhe things He said about Osho for your convenience..

  153. Shanti says:

    rajneesh did not send a mail advertising the launching of his book. he sent by air mail an actual full color 21 pages brochure called “the new man” with pictures of himself, mainly, and his camps in Russia, to the Osho meditation centers listed in the Osho.com page.
    these meditation centers are meant for spreading the work of Osho, not anybody else ( as it was personally asked by osho) and have since they first started in the early seventies the mandate, from osho, to only spread HIS work, not the work of any other master. Including sannyasin satsang givers.
    This has been a loong standing guideline.
    Despite his former master´s wishes, rajneesh sent his material by air mail and asked to be invited to go to the centers. That is why the centers got the mail from Global connections. If Osho was alive it would have been the same. The rajneesh would have ended up banned.

    That is what I mean by self promotion and deceive….calling himself Osho´s successor.

  154. Shanti says:

    … and fishing in sannyas waters.

  155. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Kranti i already replied –
    go back and read this thread october 20 at 9.03pm
    but i am copy and paste again for you here

    I read Rajneesh and the rolls royce matter and agree that what he says is correct on this matter.

    If you read the beginning of the thread then he is answering this matter from the standpoint and view
    of the statement that Osho Made

    ” that the sannyasins were merely contributing their labour and nothing else.”

    Rajneesh was addressing his concerns about TODAY

    that TODAY this issue is important
    that NO respect or regards for sannyasins
    in the commune creation process is given.
    And the source of this is Osho himself.

    Osho promised that no single person will ever hold Power over other sannyasins again after Sheela.

    And today with the so called vaugness and secrecy Mandate named Inner Circle allows the misuse of these powers is directly related to Osho

    Transparency and Accountability and Freedom
    Just 3 words would have sorted out this corruption

    Sure Osho had conditioning as he points out that even Buddha Mahavir Krishnamurti Ramakrishna and all master have their conditioning
    Are you suggesting that Osho is the infallable Pope and has no conditioning whatsoever and the only perfect Master ever ?
    Every commue under Osho failed and sannyasin paid the price. So Rajneesh is clearly pointing these issues in the interest of sannyasins whi are again coming together and says that these misitakes should not be repeated and the new Master should be simoply a friend and also Accountable and Transparent in the material world of things that relate to the lives of sannyasins who donate and give all their money to Gurus in the past as in the case of Bhagwan
    and his rollys royces.
    And Hail Rajneesh fo rhis guts and clarity.
    Osho would be proud that his sannyasin
    is not a blind puppet and has his own voice.
    Rajneesh is a total devotee
    with Open Eyes as he says.

    Dhyan Anurag

  156. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti is now the official Resort Baboon manament spokesperson as this is their official letter here.

    And Rajneesh is not concerned about being banned himself at all as he never came to Poona for 17 years after 1990 banning by Neelam and Tathagat as mentioned in his book.

    He stopped going to the Resort much before he was banned and was due to some issues
    with Amrito and Dhyanesh and himself.

    Vatayana mailed worldwide his banning
    but you should know that Rajneesh was not even going to the Resort so why did they even bother to send out his banning letter worldwide ?

    Anurag and Amitabh

    6.5 billion people are on this earth with throabing hearts and a soul( even few will call the sleepy one, so what).

    With the grace of God most of them don’t do meditation still their pain and pleasures, their dreams and inspirations bind us all in a common thread of love and sharing, fighting and than finding the ways towards peace..

    Cann’t we stop foucsing on one man…
    If he is too good, let the flowers shower on him and if he a little con man,,,who is better to judge than the cosmic intelligence,,,

    or i can say-
    Those who find, this new Pizzas maker is better than Pizza hut, enjoy your meal….rest of us here, go to Meera for our weekly Pizza……

    Shit, the prize has gone too high in this fucking resort…..why it is not like ashram any more..!!

  158. Kranti says:

    Thanks anurag I just wanted to reconfirm whether you and Sw Amitabh agree about these remarks about Osho .. The remarks about Osho are remarks about Osho.. I dont think we can justify it by putting a nice context around it..

    Sannyasins contributed their labour as part of thier building a commune.. Out of love.. Osho didnt ask for their labour as labourers..That labout theory was one of the worst interpretaions i have even seen.

    His other remarks about Osho & Rolls are even bigger personal judgements & interpretaions

    If Osho behaved due to poor mans conditioning can we say Rajneesh is behaving due to Rich mans conditioning..Otherwise this 6 Million stuff theory will not make round..

    And stating points like Rajneesh sacrificed 6 billion USd and he went against family etc are insulting the entire sannyas community… there were / are 1000s of seekers who sacrificed everything to be with Osho .. out of love..

    Atleast i want to to stick to Osho and core aspects related to Osho.. thanks for sharing

  159. Prem Abhay says:

    Anthony if what is happening at the resort (and OIF) is an extension rather than a deviation this means a very simple fact. Someone or some people are extending Osho in some way. I ask you how that is possible? How can someone extend his legacy? My understanding is that who ever is taking care of his legacy has one principle role: to make Osho’s legacy available. Of course it assumed that his legacy should be preserved and protected.

    There is no talk here of extension. Where did you get this idea? If it was for example that the now stream-lined Inner-Circle can actually extend Osho’s vision, then why did this not happen before? Why did not Osho just send Jayesh and Amrito up on stage to tell everyone how it is – both before and after he left the body? Why did Jayesh and Amrito not start giving profound discourses after Osho left the body? Why did Osho limit the scope of the Inner-Circle to practical affairs? Why did Amrito decline to tell the sannyas community the real scope of the Inner-Circle?

    You obviously do not accept the simple fact that the Inner-Circle has a practical not spiritual scope, and that Osho had no successor. In your statement you are accepting that the Inner-Circle has the capacity (and presumably the right) to make decisions about Osho’s vision: extension, fine-tuning, change, deletion, or whatever.

    I say that you like what you think is on offer and then you work backwards and take the assumption that Jayesh and Amrito are extending the greater Masters vision. You are also not willing to look at the obvious serious questions that might shatter your sweet dream, and I am not just talking about water.

    Abhay

  160. Harri Om says:

    Kranti you find a little logical contradiction with Swami Rajneesh and all of a sudden you have destroyed him. I suppose you cannot find anything contradictory with Osho. I suppose he never made up stories or twisted situations for his purposes (presumably to raise our consciousness). Anthony at least has a reasonable understanding of this (in his post). Shahriar, Anthony, Kranti, Amitabh, and Abhay, here is the answer to your question. The Ranch disaster occurred for several reasons. It was in part a device from Osho. It was also in part Osho’s unwillingness to involve himself in others affairs – giving them the chance to grow around him and in his presence, hopefully with less and less learning from making mistakes. A third reason is based on the understanding that each Master has certain capabilities and therefore limitations. Although enlightenment enhances the unique qualities of a person, it does not bring about major shifts in type of talent. For example if a person of immense love and devotion (like Ramakrishna) becomes enlightened, he does not suddenly get transformed into an intellectual giant (like Vivekenanda). Osho was an eccentric intellectual genius, but not much of a manager. He perhaps understand better than anyone the ideology of communism, but get him to make some communes and well we all know what happened. The final reason why The Ranch disaster occurred was not because Osho gave Sheela and her Gang all the power. The actual situation is more along the lines that Sheela and her Gang took the reins by force – away from Osho and others that were close to him. This last issue is important to understand. This is what has happened with the taking over of the inner-circle by Jayesh and Amrito and their Gang. The transition into the resort model of operation is considered appealing to a group that can be categorized generally as being mind-orientated, non-devotional, individualistic, and Westernized. The people that have been forced out of the inner-circle, the Pune resort, and (OIF) publishing, are generally described as being heart-orientated, devotional, holistic, and Easternized. This is considered by many to be Osho’s great last device: the Master creates two or more hubs that oppose each to create a symbiotic relationship. This is problematic for two reasons. Firstly this is not what Osho actually created. The inner-circle itself, as with the Pune 2 Ashram, was comprised of a wide variety of personalities. This diversity of interests reflected as much as is practically possible the scope of who Osho was and what he really was on about. The break-down of the inner-circle was not Osho’s creation, and this leads to the second problem. The second problem is that the unfolding creation of the resort has come out of Jayesh, Amrito, and the Gang exercising their authority by force, to the exclusion of those who dare to disagree. The Ranch failed in large part because of the way Sheela and others forced their way into power. This tendency to domineer at any cost means that the motive towards assuming responsibility is not with good intent. So the result is that the decisions and actions undertaken by the authorities at Pune resort (as with at The Ranch) cannot create a harmonious space, and if left unchecked can become dangerously harmful (as I and others argue it already has). Osho did not document or formalise the manner in which the political system he started should work. He gave it a scope, a practical rather than spiritual mandate. Everything for the healthy functioning of the system was in place, just not formalised. It was just up to the individuals in the inner-circle to govern by consensus, and to be open and responsive to Osho’s people and their views. This is Osho’s pattern. He creates something and then gives people the freedom to either make something of it and grow at the same, or destroy it and harm others at the same time. Of course it is also partly because of his inability to understand the simple practical necessities that are required for an organization to function. So we have it that the current dichotomy is not a symbiosis at all. The landscape has been turned into a battle ground. Further, the (supposedly) main-stream Osho movement is not a healthy movement in itself. It has the basic features that can create what might be a Masters device of juxtaposing difference personality types. However this is not the case. Yes the basic features are there, but the quality is not. This is why if you come for a few weeks you may be satisfied. If you come back again a few times or stay for a while that is likely to change significantly. Perhaps it is worthwhile to create two or more separate styles of Osho. Whether this happens is not relevant to the overall issue of Osho’s legacy, including his discourse, his words, his books, and his Pune place. This is because he left his legacy as a unity, with noone in the inner-circle given the power to override this. So the creation of an apparent Master’s device has actually come out of lust for power rather than the silence of existence. This can only ever be a recipe for disaster. This is also why status quo is not an option. Reconciliation of course is an option to be considered. If however those that have committed wrongs get rewarded for the harmful efforts this will only reinforce their deeply errant psychological make up. The institution of a guiding constitution with checks and balances will be a positive. Yet it can only ever counter the unethical forces that have not been addressed. This creates an unhealthy dynamic of tension which means that other people in positions of responsibility will always feel and be in tension. The same is for the community as a whole. This is why the issue of wrongful conduct needs to be explored and addressed fully before the Osho movement can hope to move forward.

    what imeant by extension is that the way the inner circle operates in practical matters is exactly the same way osho operated in hose matters. they have not improve them… just kept doing what he was doing.
    I am not defending anyone. I am stating a fact. the manipulative way to do things comes from the master himself. that is what i meant.

  162. Anand says:

    everybody…more you get engaged with rajneesh swami you help him indirectly. That is exactly what he wants, to create some discussions pro and against him and raise his profile. Best to ignore him totally and move on with better topics.
    Let fools be fools and if other fools want to follow fools- let it be.

    Why is Lovebaba Harideva looking for new photos of Jayesh, Amrito etc.?

  163. Prem Abhay says:

    Yes Anthony you are right. What was I thinking. Of course in the matters of the spirit Osho was contradictory, confusing and manipulative. For example the historic facts never mattered to Osho. What mattered was how they best fitted in the moment to create a story that raised the consciousness of humanity. It did not matter that he would twist an historic situation to highlight a point, and then later on use the same or similar historic situation to tell a completely different and maybe even contradictory story. The ultimate truth was Osho’s concern, not mundane truth. Here I was thinking the ‘extension’ meant changing Osho’s vision stuff. I was wrong on this count.

    Obviously, as you so kindly point out, it really is utterly impossible for anyone to engage in Osho’s vision stuff: because he was just so contradictory and manipulative. So obviously Jayesh, Amrito, and the Gang are not trying to mess with the big stuff. They must only be extending the practical endeavours of Osho. Of course I was wrong here too. As you say, it is a simple fact that they are just doing the exact same practical stuff that Osho did. Obviously the simple fact that Osho never bothered much about practical affairs is irrelevant. It is for sure also irrelevant that by the nature of being practical it is not possible to simple do exactly as Osho has done. The practical world changes and the practical decisions need to reflect this. However as you so kindly point out this is somehow all irrelevant.

    Jayesh and Amrito would never have dared to try and tinker with the convoluted and weird mystical map that Osho left about the unchanging and eternal. They have just been carbon copying all the practical stuff exactly as Osho did. What was I thinking.

  164. Dear Kranti

    I do not know why Rajnesh speaks in favor or against Osho. I can not read Rajneesh no-mind state. Rajneesh is the right person to answer this question.

    Personally, I do not agree with all statements of Rajneesh on Osho. it hurts.

    But at the same time these statements of Rajneesh have some truth also and till now no one is able to answer these questions of Rajneesh.

    Have you come across any nice answer to the clear issues raised by Swami Rajneesh???

    Kranti, truth needs no support. Whereas lies needs the support of continous lying.

    Rajneesh is one man and raising some important burning issues related with Osho Sannyas world.
    Can any one answer them here?

    Two things arise from this utter silence regarding Rajneesh’s questions

    1) the questions raised by Rajneesh are valid and we can not simply stay silent about them and we need to take some action

    2) Questions raised by Rajneesh are false but no one can answer them as they are logically correct
    – then it proves that at least Rajneesh is an Intelluctual Giant and not retarded as his opponent calls him.

    Think…..

    Either Rajneesh questions are right
    OR Rajneesh is at least intelluctually giant

    Or BOTH… I think, Rajneesh is an intelluctual giant, a courageous buddha raising valid questions about Osho Sannyas world which need to be answered.

    Actually every Sannyasins should ask these questions, including you Kranti

    What is the practical reason for the banning of so many sannyasins? How on practical grounds can any sannyasin be banned if they have not interfered in the life of anyone else? How can a musician be banned on practical grounds for issues to do with devotional songs? How can a musician be banned on practical grounds for singing songs to another (living) Master? How, on practical grounds can sannyasin group leaders be restricted because they visited a living Master? How can sannyasins be banned on practical grounds for telling the truth in an affidavit? How can sannyasins be banned on practical grounds for not signing a letter of understanding? How, on practical grounds, can centres be influenced in whom they allow to visit their centre – and in what capacity? How on practical grounds can Osho’s spoken word be edited – by omission and addition? How on practical grounds can the pagoda be demolished – especially when the Pune Municipal Council was the very authority that put a stop to it? This banning practice is a scam and so is everything else. The reasons for practices along the lines of the above have been documented and clearly have a spiritual basis for decisions taken. In the practice of restricting the freedom of sannyasins, including banning them, the inner-circle, Pune management, and OIF have taken decisions beyond their practical mandate. They have even gone so far as to justify their decisions by providing a spiritual interpretation of Osho for this very purpose. This is clear proof of their operating outside their domain of authority and responsibility.

  166. Prem Abhay says:

    Yes Amitabh it is quite interesting that a bunch of retarded buffoons has outwitted Osho’s wisest disciples (baboons) and their proxies. Surely it is not so that the buffoons are actually intelligent. The other issue is whether they (the buffoons) are, as you say, just brilliants sophists: they can win any debate without regard for the truth. What if they are not only are brilliant sophists, but also speak the truth. What if Osho’s supposed wisest disciples are actually a bunch of baboons full of lies? I, like you, also wait eagerly for a response that is not a psychological strategy to essentially avoid the obvious questions, facts, arguments, and conclusions.

    Amrito reply to Critics is a Bogus story as Amrito never ever replied to anyone and is hiding behind others

    Anurag

  169. Dear Anurag

    I think, Amrito is not hiding behind others
    but Amtiro is riding on the stupdity of our own Sannyasins who do not raise their voice againt inner circle.

    By not raising our voice we are encouraging the inner circle to continue with their mistakes.

    Inner circle is not the only one to blame. Other side of story is that we all are responsible for the present mess in Osho Sannyas world.

    Sannyasins who do not raise voice against inner circle are also culprits.

    Lack of unity on Sincere Sannyasins side is a bigger threat than the inner circle.

    I urge all mature and sincere Sannyasins to raise their voice and get united forgetting their personal differences.

    Sw Amitabh

    Thanks for accepting that few of those statements hurts you.. It hurt me immensely as i see them as personal interpretaions of rajneesh

    But we can not hide behind ‘ Rajneesh No – Mind ‘ state and avoid stating the obivious

    If we can not know what is Rajnessh No – Mind there is no way Rajneesh can the No Mind behind Osho ( And you know the big that No Mind must have been )

    You say

    ” 1) the questions raised by Rajneesh are valid and we can not simply stay silent about them and we need to take some action

    2) Questions raised by Rajneesh are false but no one can answer them as they are logically correct

    We are not beinng silent ..We are only trying to see if they are valid ..

    To me they dont seem to be valid ..Infact as Anand said i sonehow feel rajneesh is good in getting attention..And tahst what he is trying to do by saying so many things against Osho

    Infact his outer imitations of trying to be like Osho is nothing compared to the ‘ Mind ‘ devices he is using to get people. Osho attacked all established set ups to get the attention of people.. Osho has done it all.. He didnt leave much to do for anyone as far as destablising our mental structures..

    What is left for Rajnessh ?

    So he asked himself .. ne need something bigger than what Osho did to get the attention of Osho sannyasins

    So this is the device ‘ Attack Osho himself to target one section of people and Attack Inner Circle to target the sannyasins who have disatisfaction against Inner Circle

    So it seems to be a Master Strategy – To target two segmenst of people

    Ofcourse I will not dare to say he is doing it with bad intentions.. He might have convinced himself that this is what the the world needs … Very much possible..

    So If somone is alright with such a device let them be with Rajneesh .. So be it..

    But personally i dont need to fall for such a device..It will amount to me getting programmed from someone again.. osho has deprogrammed us so much.. I am not going to let anyone program me no matter how big that inttellectual giant is

    Infact I was shocked to see one of Abay’s psost which is very highly concious way of looking at things.. i was stunned by that post which was a reply to anthony.. Hope it is not a stunt and he meant it.. If he meant it the anwers for your questions are in Abhay’s post

    In a way Sw Anurag is right .. I have a feeling this is getting REAL stuff.. Lets be clear and concious here. We all get hold of something / understanding which can be a beautiful beginning.. There will be few give & takes..

  173. Dear Kranti

    I think minor clarification is needed on my part.
    Swami Rajneesh statements hurts because what ever Rajneesh is stating is true.. Truth hurts.
    Deep down every one knows that what rajneesh is saying is right but many people do not want to see the truth as it hurts.. truth hurts very badly..

    But I am more hurt to see that many genuine sannyasins of Osho have betrayed their master by not raising their voice.

    I am not counting those sannyasins as genuine who raise their voice only when they get banned.

    These sannyasins who get banned and then after raise voice are more concerned with their personal gains than with Osho.

    Most of the time in this discussion we are hitting at the inner circle… I accept they are doing wrong.. but what about the responsibility of silent genuine sannyasins… Are not they also responsible for the present mess???..

    there are many silent readers in this forum and if they do not raise their voice then I count them among Judas of Osho world

    when sun appears darkness disappears on its own.

    If Sannyasins like Rajneesh, Bhrama vedant, Arun etc appears on the front scene then inner circle will disappear on its own.

    We have to bring more light in to remove the darkness..

    We need to support these sincere Sannyasins of Osho and let the movement start flousihing again

  174. Dear Sannyasins

    I feel we need to raise issues regarding the mistakes of Inner circle

    and at the same time we should support each other and share information about genuine sannyasins of Osho.

    Thats one of the reason i write in favor of Rajneesh, Anand Arun, Brahma vedand etc

    If genuine sannyasins are united then more than half the problem will be solved.

    I am sorry Swami Amitabh

    I have completely opposite views about Sw Rajnessh and Inner Circle..

    In short I feel Sw rajnessh is raising voice only to get attention with or without good inetnetions and Inner Circle has problems to get sannyasin acceptance on prcatical decisions.. I sincerely think they have not harmed Osho vision because there is no such thing as Osho vision.. Osho never had crealy defined Vision .. I persoanlly struggled with this for some time and arrived at an understanding that all He wanted was us to realize the value Celebrating and living life moment and moment..

    Rest of the stuff is Commentary..Contextual..devices..His games…

    If Abahy did mean what he said then it CAN be the starting point for healthy discussions. It puts to rest few unhealthy views and gives a platform for discussion. Somehow he stumbled upon that . If NOT we are all back to square one .. I dont see a way out..

    And with my sannyasins I am individually linked. It is not a question that you belong to an organization, it is not an organization at all. It is a personal relationship, it is a love affair.
    If you are open to me, even if this body disappears, it is not going to make any difference. I will be available to you.

    back to the original thread about celebration.
    i am surprised that it has been left to me to come up with an osho quote to sum it all up.

    it says

    that`s my whole teaching,celebration,not worship but celebration.when you worship,you start making hierarchy,the lower and the higher.when you worship,you put one thing on top of another thing,something becomes sacred,something profane….
    part of you becomes evil and part holy and then there is constant conflict and all joy is lost.

    celebration is a totally different dimension.
    when you celebrate,you celebrate all,you dont divide.
    for a celebrator,drinking tea is as beautiful as prayer.the church,the temple,the pub,the mosque are all one.
    making love to a woman or praying to a god is the same.
    that is what sannyas is all about.
    it is a celebration,not a worship.
    and celebrate in your own way because celebration cannot have any form.
    that`s my message,

    maybe he was just telling some old hippies what they wanted to hear….

  183. Dear Garimo

    No one is speaking on ur behalf
    In fact, I was asking that genuine people should raise their voice and speak for themselves.

    If genuine Sannyasins do not want to speak and remain silent. Then should accept whatsoever Amrito and party is doing.

    Every decision has its consequences.

    I am stating a simple fact… which is very clear.
    If genuine Sannyasins do not stand up then the dictatorship of inner circle will continue like this.
    and I count genuine sannyasins more responsible for this than the inner circle…
    it is the genuine sannyasins who are indirectly giving power in the hands of inner circle.

    Now it is up to them to decide whether they want to speak for themselves, for their rights and for the fellow travellers or not?

    but if they do not speak then credit goes to them for betraying their master.

    If I am not clear then i try once more…
    Old generation of Osho Sannyasins have betrayed their master and they owe a lot to new generation.

    I had raised this issue2 years ago also in YahooGroups and no one liked it and many old sannyasins were hurt.

    but this is a fact.. because of old sannyasins stupdity new generation is paying the price for their mistakes.

    New Generation will not pay the price, if they are smart enough to look under the masks of the old ones.

    Those who are preachig walk your walk alone, must be asked how many steps in their life they have walked alone.
    For example, all those who swear by their proximity with Osho, must be asked cutting edge questions.
    The Cat who wants to go to Haj must be asked how many mouses she has eaten on the way.

    Bascially there is no need to ask the questions, if you are a woman till 30+
    Spend a week in the resort, and see how the old Swamis are telling the stories and adventures with Osho, and few hours later you will see, Zen is another name for a dick!

    and Old Mas?
    As i have seen, they are doing blissfully Vipasana and feeling thankful that manopause period went smoothly, because of meditation, and with the grace of Osho they are still in the ashram instead of old people’s home.

  189. Shanti says:

    My friends. I am signing out for a while. I am a bit bored and I feel the discussion has become circular to an extend that no matter what arguments we put out , obviously, each one of us will remain in its own ideas. So, it makes no sense to keep on repeating them for ever… i am bored too.

    I think the ashram, the resort is the most beautiful place on earth. It is the place that I most want to be after all these years.
    It has a quality that for me no other place has. take away the pictures, ban the devotional songs, dismantle the pagoda, … all irrelevant. I have stated the pints where I am not so groovy about, but over all I respect and admire the work of the inner circle.

    More over, every time I am there the place is thriving with celebration,. laughter and meditation . as it has always been. And it is Osho´s place, with all its beauty. full of people every time I am there. My heart is with the ashram, the resort or whatever name you want to give it.

    If people do not feel identified with the ways things are over there, there are plenty of places to go and live your sannyas and personal awareness process the way it suits you.
    Even if you want second- hand osho´s you have “rajneesh the dick cutter”. Not my trip… but as Osho once said “you need false masters, because otherwise , what are you going to do with false disciples… where can they go?”

    So that is my standing point: sannyas is a loose gathering of individuals, let those individuals go and gather wherever they feel at home.
    “Marble kissing” is not my trip. neither is bhajans, or third rate masters. If they are banned… even better, so i do not have to see those people around.

    A big kiss to everybody.. and we will meet again …some,sunny day.

  192. shantam prem says:

    I think it is a blessing in disguise for woman seekers on the path with Osho that Viagara is only for the men!

    So the great Victors can still indulge in the carnal delights and feel young with borrowed energy, on the other side Ma’s can do sincere meditation.

    Even when one sees the scene of neo satsang givers coming from the Osho school. Woman teachers are doing their work more sincerely while the men are happily amazing wealth.

    You say,” I have stated the pints where I am not so groovy about….”

    Glad to hear you were able to make an effective complaint about the dreadful beer served up at the ashram pub…And you weren’t excommunicated?

    Are the powers-that-be mellowing, one wonders?!

    Sounds like it….

    Cheers!

  197. frank says:

    dont feel inferior kranti.
    you still have your dick.
    me,i`ve been master-baiting and guru-baiting for so long,i`ve had it kicked,hacked,battered,excommunicated shaken and stirred and now finally its due to be chopped…..

  198. Kranti says:

    My luck hasnt run out as i havent met any cutting edge masters so far directly ..

    Soon people will go to meditation centers with all the protection available like Jockstrap and ball-box & what not.. You never what will be justified in the name of ZEN..

    Wondering Bodhidharma hiself lasted very long with full anatomy..

    Thats will be Half Zen..not full treatment

  201. Kranti says:

    Thinking about Chopping , Rasputin lost it when they killed him.. Heard someone ( female sannyasin ) preserved it ..Dont know whether it was real..

  202. frank says:

    re…bodhidharma and body-parts.

    according to osho,as posted in a recent thread here on sannyas news,the reason,so enigmatic in zen,that bodhidharma went to china was in fact because the indians had no sense of humour and couldn`t get to grips with his crazy,confrontational stand-up show……..

    so having tried his stand-up routine in the comedy clubs of beijing,honk kong and shanghai,with painfully little success,getting booed off everywhere–they just thought he was another crazy brown guy-bodhidharma retired to a cave to sulk.

    seven years later some bright spark chopped his own dick off and lobbed it into the cave.
    bodhidharma,who was having a cup of tea,had already chopped his own eyelids off,thought this was the best routine he had ever seen.
    hard core martial arts zen-chopping was born that day.
    –ask oshobob.but he may not know the true story….
    he only knows the official story which says it was a “hand”.

    ” watch out or your third man might end up as a short leg”

    Thats will be Half Zen..not full treatment

    I’ll make sure I’m at cover point, I’m rather fond of my long leg (It’s a fine leg)!

  204. Satya Deva says:

    Mmm…perhaps I’ll play safe with an extra cover….

  205. Kranti says:

    Oshobob, Please let us know all the ‘ facts ‘ of the case

    Saw a photo of Oshobob standing infront of Bodhidharma’ house or something..He knows for sure all the facts..

  206. Kranti says:

    Nice to see all these cricketing terms..They are coming in handy..

  207. Kranti says:

    ” In one legend, Bodhidharma refused to resume teaching until his would-be student, Dazu Huike, who had kept vigil for weeks in the deep snow outside of the monastery, cut off his own right arm to demonstrate sincerity.”

    Only the disciples lose body parts..Masters always seem to escape.. they dont seem to lose even when they are disciples..

  208. frank says:

    can you imagine one of the satsang meetings of those zen days with all these guys sitting around with bits missing,crutches,eyepatches etc.
    –they would have needed wheelchair access for sure.

    there was that one when the kid had his “finger”sliced off,too.
    one guy was beaten to death for looking at some sexy chick who was walking past.
    can you imagine that at the osho ashram?
    the place would have been a morgue.

    and you are right,kranti,the masters always seemed to get away with it.everything in full working order.
    amazing.

  209. Kranti says:

    And it also seems some disciples are in such a hurry to reach master status only protect anatomy..who cares about enlightenment..let me become a master so taht i dont have to lose anything approach.. you would have seen real cases

  210. Kranti says:

    ” with all these guys sitting around with bits missing,crutches,eyepatches etc ”

    the more we visualize that the more it sound scary..

    And to see that those poor guys managing pune being termed as criminals and violent etc etc.. Its really bad..

    The maximum ZEN treatment / scare is getting a broomstick shown at you and we call that violence?

    We have come a long way in civilization

  211. Kranti says:

    I mean ZENlization

  212. Kranti says:

    Just for consolation i got one ,

    That guy Dazu Huike who lost the hand became a master later..

  213. frank says:

    yes,he got the haiku
    “what is the sound of one hand clapping?”
    exactly right.

  214. oshobob says:

    do you guys really think you’re going to lure me into this trap…? not a chance. good try though.

  215. garimo says:

    ummm, Where did I say that? I don’t remember… what was I talking about? I must be getting old…

    >>>” because of old sannyasins stupdity new generation is paying the price for their mistakes.”

    >>>>this si what Garimo posted against Amitabh

  216. oshobob says:

    To correct once again the mistaken posters on this forum who are pissing and moaning continually about the destruction of Osho’s “pagoda” — Osho never had a pagoda. So it could never have been destroyed. Maybe it’s just like his “vision.”

    He had a podium — that’s the green marble dais where he spoke his discourses.

    He had/has a samadhi — that’s where the urn of his ashes supposedly are.

    Bodhidharma had a pagoda — still does, by the way. It’s in China.

  217. Kranti says:

    Think that is ‘ Hakuin Ekaku’ both are same?

  218. Kranti says:

    ” this si what Garimo posted against Amitabh”

    Garimo..Thats was poor poor english from me.. I wanted to say garimo doesnt like people talking on behalf of others.. So I asked Amitabh not to say anything on behalf of new sannyasins.. Sorry for confusing you

  219. Kranti says:

    OK.. Here we go !!

    ” Osho never had a pagoda ”

    Oshobob.. Going by your new active meditation stages you should have said this in a new thread..

    Now that you have brough it out let us see the respponses ( Reactions )

  220. Kranti says:

    ” Bodhidharma had a pagoda — still does, by the way. It’s in China.”

    Oshobob.. Since you were there we thought you have few facts about who lost which body part..Frank had a suspicion that it was not a ‘ hand ‘

  221. Kranti says:

    So He had a podium.. Part of that is left..there is an alternative hi-fi auditorium ,

    Osho samadhi is beautifully intact

    He never had a ‘ pagoda ‘

    Even the Rolls is there

    So what is the problem..Nothing is missing

    ( Let us put on protective gears and wait )

  222. oshobob says:

    first…

    in the states, cricket is an insect that lives in the grass and chirps at night — that’s it. americans play football, and they wear protective gear for it. it is not soccer. the ball is not round.

    Hakuin Ekaku is not Eka. Hakuin was a Jap.
    Eka is the Japanese pronunciation of Huike. He was the one-armed man from China, who was the 2nd Patriarch of Zen, Bodhidharma’s top disciple.

    Kranti is probably Parmartha.
    frank is probably Parmartha.

    and Paritosh is probably not dead.

  223. Kranti says:

    I requested Parmartha to publish few threads and he did also.. We exchange mails… So me and Parmartha are not the same..

  224. oshobob says:

    yeah, right Kranti….

    and i exchanged some emails with Osho and he told me what his Mandate currently is, so therefore me and Osho are two different people. And one thing he said to me was that the sannyasnews posters should worry less about the Mandate and put their attention more on getting a Womandate — that would solve a lot of the current problems, and you wouldn’t be focusing so much on lost Bodhi-parts and such nonsense…

  225. Kranti says:

    Osho had lot of problems with Womandate.. thats is the reason he gave Mandate – We need to check with Anurag and Amitabh.. I still dont get what that mandate stuff was..

  226. frank says:

    i don`t think the second zen patriarch was serious at all.
    sounds like he was just having a bit of `armless fun.

  227. oshobob says:

    that was ‘ilarious frank…

  228. Chinmaya says:

    Prem Abhay………..Your comments are very childish, with a little knowledge on Master Osho………
    when you say that He was manipulative and contradictory……If you feel yourself, you know better than Osho……..then, why you have been reading and listening Osho………
    and you also start some business organization in religion, like many faque gurus are working in the market like counterfeit coins, which looks more attractive and charming than the original.
    It is never too late man, start, and let us see after a decade how many people will follow to listen you………may be your followers are……..your wife and children……..and may not they too be……..
    Try your luck………who stops you to jump into this business……….Start immediately,
    Read and listen Osho, and vomit on people, as other Gurus are doing and speaking …..mixing Management, History, Social life and charming TV news.

  229. frank says:

    .

    “your comments are….guru…vomit…little knowledge”

    here we go again.
    it`s sunni-asins
    versus
    oshi-ites time again

    ” my podium is bigger than your podium.”
    “but my pagoda is bigger than your pagoda”

    “pull it down”
    “chop it off”
    `that`ll teach you…”

    etc etc…

  230. oshobob says:

    Good comment Chinmaya. We all could do with a little more listening to Osho and a little less projecting our egos and ‘wit’ — least we turn into a Ludwig ‘Wit’-genstein or something…

    On these lines, just a note…

    The 2nd Chinese Zen Patriarch, Huike (the one with only one ‘arm), not only was the disciple and successor of Bodhidharma, he was the Zen master of the 3rd Chinese Patriarch, none other than Sengcan, who the Japs mispronounce as ‘Sosan’

    Osho has full discourse series on both of these Zen bookends sandwiching Huike:

    Bodhidharma: The Greatest Zen Master

    and,

    Hsin Hsin Ming: The Book of Nothing, talks on the Faith-Mind Sutras of Sosan.

    The full Bodhidharma series of audio mp3′s are now available on my website for free listening, and the Sosan series will be very up shortly.

  231. oshobob says:

    that should be “up, very shortly” for the Hsin Hsin Ming Osho discourses. Maybe by tomorrow.

  232. frank says:

    hey oshobob,
    seems like you fell into the honey trap after all.

    good.

    now everybody can have a bit of harmless fun reading osho instead of fighting about his “mandate”

    keep up the good work.

  233. frank says:

    oshobob,
    osho`s talks about bodhidharma going to china because people were more receptive to humour of chuang tsu etc.

    but bodhidharma and his guys dont in all honesty sound like a barrel of laughs,they are prety rough guys.there`s a lot of violence in the stories.
    there is no violence in chang tsu lao-tsu and others
    and reading chuang-tsu particularly,as well as other chinese literature,there is obviously a very subtle and developed sense of humour at work.

    do the two strands meet?
    they seem a bit apart to me.
    what do you think?

  234. shantam prem says:

    Shanti,
    If you read this, please answer the points. because this discussion is between two sannyasins who took sannyas in the same year 1984, are fully in love with 17, koregaon park and have allergy to all the gurus other than Osho.

    Shanti-
    I think the ashram, the resort is the most beautiful place on earth. It is the place that I most want to be after all these years.
    It has a quality that for me no other place has.
    Shantam-Agreed fully

    Shanti-
    take away the pictures, ban the devotional songs, dismantle the pagoda, … all irrelevant.
    Shantam-
    For me personally it is also irrelevant.That is why i have been hundreds of times in the Osho Auditorium for white robe(Evening meeting in Resort terminology)

    Now the question comes, Is this irrelevant for majority of sannyasins.?

    Just the other day i have heard from Him something like,” The best teacher addresses to the last in class.”
    Why cannot involve management all the people.

    Shanti-
    but over all I respect and admire the work of the inner circle.
    Shantam-
    Is inner cricle still exist. can you tell the names of just 10 of its memebrs. As per my knowledge, there is a management committee, hand picked by Big boss.

    Shanti-
    “Marble kissing” is not my trip. neither is bhajans.

    Shantam- Marble kissing is also not my trip, neither Bhajans nor disco.
    Anthony had send me the piece of podium marble. It was a long journey for this green marble and within few minutes with me and it was in a nice lake as its final resting place.

    But why to reject those people who are nourished by this.
    For example when Osho created the restaurant for vegetarian and meat eaters both. Why to take the non veg food away.
    It is a choice of freedom and also of tradition.
    Intelligence is required the way restaurants are doing. Smokers have their own area, non smokers have their own.

    People who like to go to Kirtan, they go to Kirtan, those who like to go to disco, they go disco.

    Why it cannot be like a university with hundreds of faculties. Just because few don’t like chemistry, there is no need to close the chemistry department.
    I think Osho envisioned His place like this.

  235. Kranti says:

    You are right Frank

    See this definition in wikipedia

    ” Throughout Buddhist art, Bodhidharma is depicted as a rather ill-tempered, profusely bearded and wide-eyed barbarian. He is described as “The Blue-Eyed Barbarian……in Chinese texts.”

  236. Kranti says:

    Chinmaya

    Osho used lot of devices ..one thing is talking according to context.. an usning historical facts in a manner which suited the questioner.. he himself openly admitted that he used the language / masters of other paths just to get attention.. Thats what Anthony and Abhay meany by Osho maniplating..Not in a derogatory sense..Osho had his way. We will all love Osho because of that only..Thats what differentiated Osho..If he had been a ‘ good old teacher ‘ we wouldnt be talking about him..We woldnt be fighting like this.. some 100 odd disciples will celebrate his birthday and forget ..

  237. Kranti says:

    I love Osho because

    Osho was manipulative and contradictory

    Osho openly said we cannot categorize him into any path

    Osho said He has no teaching

    Osho said he contradicts himself and he has no obligation to anyone to be consistent

    Osho used ‘ left hand Tantra ‘

    He ddidnt care a damn about relative truth or trying to be honest like a hypocritical teacher.. He converted everything as a device to help the questioner.. So there is nothing wrong or derogatory when we point out those aspects of Osho with Love

    But what i will find derogatory is saying Osho was not even aware what he was doing.. He was acting out of poor mans conditioning.. He sucked sannyasin energy , He was money hungry etc etc..

  238. oshobob says:

    frank, honestly…

    it’s such a long, long story, the whole China thing. Once you are caught into it, it is absolutely a honey trap, just like Osho…

    and they are interconnected in a million and one ways.

    but, if i get started, there’s no end to it really, it is really a vast panoramic mixture of the mundane and the mystical, so odd in an odd way.

    The whole Bodhidharma and Zen literature is a very unique story unto itself — such a weird episode in history, maybe that’s why it’s so intriguing. And why Osho spent so much time and energy on it. But it’s a present-day story, though it looks on the surface to be past history.

    But as I said, i know you guys are trying to lure me into this, but then we will go walking into the Chinese painting down the small path, disappear, and maybe never come back…so it’s dangerous too…

    as i have time i will try to talk about it, what little i know…

    Cheers

  239. Kranti says:

    Oshobob.. I am ready to walk with you.. I need a break from all these conflits..take us for a china ride..If possible let us do it as a thread…Or we can back to that Bodhodharma thread..

    But i need to wind up today as it is 1.30 am in the night

    Thanks to you and Frank for some lighter stuff and different posts on Bodhidharma..

  240. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Kranti
    You are putting out your own words and spin here
    +++++++++++++++
    But what i will find derogatory is saying Osho was not even aware what he was doing.. He was acting out of poor mans conditioning.. He sucked sannyasin energy , He was money hungry etc etc.
    ++++++++++++++++

    Yes Osho did not know what was not even aware of what he was doing is true.
    Remember Sheela ?? Did he know what he was doing when he placed Sheela in power and he was meeting her everyday for 4 years and then he simply denies that he did not know anything that was happening on the Ranch ??

    Yes Osho is acting out of his poor man’s conditioning is very clear from his actions of amassing
    93 rolls royces out of donations and sannyasins money. Each sannyasin sold their homes and donated everything to make the Ranch and there should be accountability for finances of the sannyasins.
    Always the rich and powerful got front row seats and those who made financial contributions were given power like Jayesh types.

    Osho is not the Only Master for all the sannyasins as these sannyasins have travelled many many lives and also lived with other Masters in the past and are a collective heritage of this Earth from all the Past Buddhas and Enlightened ones.

    He placed himself above all Masters
    and is the only person in the history of India or the East where hundreds of enlightened Masters have existed to have called himself Bhagwan.

    When no one was following him since 1960 in India he realised that it is better to make big news in India by declaring himself to be The Bhagwan.
    Even then he was laughed at tlll 1970
    and finally in 1974 Mukta managed to buy a small 2 acre house for Bhagwan to settle in poona.

    Just see his whole Guru Trip from 1960 – 1970
    all these 10 years are hidden from sannyasins.

    His only reccords shown is 4 years of Poona 1 days
    Few months of talks in of Oregon, and the final
    4 years of Poona 2 days.

    9 years for all to see and 10 years hidden.
    and that too his formative years as a Guru

    Why is the Original 10 years hidden when he was an indian Guru promising people that he would awaken them if they surrendered to HIm ??
    Have you evven seen thoses days posters and photos of his self promotion ??
    Have you seen hundreds of sannyasins prostating before his feet and him smiling with flower garlands blesssing those touching and kissing his feet ?

    Pure Guru and Pure Bhagwan trip.

    So find all this derogatory or whatever but the fact is that Bhagwan was a Guru and that is why Gurus demanded total surrender and that is why those 93 Rolls Royces were a Guru Trip.

    There are enough records to show that Bhagwan
    did anything to get money
    or the attention of the world stage

    Fact is a Fact a
    nd as Bhagwan says i call a spade a fucking spade,
    So here i call a spade a fucking spade.
    Now be hurt and enjoy the truth.

    I will be glad to see your face…
    Face behind the words and than words are not just words…

  242. Shanti says:

    Shantamy. I agree with the possibility of having all the colors available… But It will not happen. The answer is simple. Osho´s path is not about the finger pointing to the moon… it is not about biting that finger. But about the moon. In some moment they had to shift towards the moon. I feel that is what is happening in the ashram now.
    I do not care about what is not there anymore. Nor should I care to bring it back to equanimity reasons. But if it comes back it will be the same for me.
    However, there are enough places for sannyasins who want finger munching. I am not going to tell anyone that is wrong… their trip. But it was time we started focusing on the moon. I am glad it has happened. I need a place like this. the old story is gone.

  244. Shanti says:

    It was about time we grew up wasn´t it?

  245. Prem Abhay says:

    Kranti I am unsure of what you are saying. Have you read my post carefully. Are you fully aware of the immense sarcasm that it contains?

    Swami Amitabh what about the group of sannyasins that raise their voice in favour of the Inner-Circle?

    Kranti now I understand your misunderstanding. It is clear that the complexity of Osho’s vision means that it is not clearly defined – to anyone other than him. From this I argue that it is simply impossibly for anyone, including an enlightened Osho sannyasin, to fully understand and make decisions in relation to this vision. Your (wrong) interpretation is that because the vision is not clear (to you and others) then it really has no reality. This I disagree with. All it means is that noone, especially the Inner-Circle or Pune resort management can tinker with this big stuff. All they can do is make practical decisions with respect to making this vision of Osho available, in all its untouched and pure complexity.

    Perhaps you are understanding Osho here at a deeper level. This is along the lines of a popular saying of Osho’s that it is between the lines and between the words that really is the essence of his message: the empty space, the silence, the gaps. If you understand Osho at this level then you would be ready to sit with him in silence. In this case if it were only you he were sitting with he would not have uttered a single word. Nevertheless Osho did and said many fold complicated and contradictory fictions that point to the truth. This is his guide-book for the present and the future humanity. This is his vision. It is a guide-book for dummies to get from darkness to eternity. This however does not mean that the guide-book is about managing the practical affairs of his legacy. Yes it is a practical guide-book in a way, but for each person to make their way through the thicket that is their illusion.

    Perhaps you are also beginning to understand another aspect of Osho. In giving you a point of view that is in tune with your beliefs, and then showing you another point of view (maybe even opposing), this has the effect of challenging your beliefs and helps open your mind. In this way your mind matures and drops its limiting beliefs. It is the same with being exposed to different cultures by travelling. It helps to see that your deeply held beliefs (even about God or Allah or Enlightenment), are really only just mental constructs created by your mind. They are just fictions, as is your ego. This is the big joke.

    Kranti you say old and some inbetween sannyasins miss the way things should have been, and that new sannyasins are not concerned. You fail to understand that it is the type of old and inbetween sannyasin that is the issue, and that many new sannyasins are of a similar constitution.

    Whoever lost money into The Ranch should receive just compensation – including wages plus interest. That should put a little dint in Jayesh’s stock-pile. There should also be class action law suits for all the victims of the Pune resort: broken bones through accidents caused by poor lighting, sickened by the food and water, poisoned by high levels of chlorine and hydrogen peroxide in the food, and mentally victimized and slandered. That should put a little more of a dint in Jayesh’s stock-pile.

    Anurag thanks for the facts about Osho’s (Bhagwan’s) earlier years as a buddha (guru).

  246. Prem Abhay says:

    Shanti, Osho is the finger pointing to the moon. Sure it is all really only about the moon, but this does not change Osho’s anatomy. If you want to remove Osho and just leave the moon, then of course moon is everywhere. The thing is if you do this to the Pune resort you are removing the finger (Osho) and leaving the just moon. This is the same as removing a master and leaving just the moon. Following this logic all Masters are useless for pointing to the moon. The point you miss is if it weren’t for the finger pointing you would not have a clue that there was a moon in the first place. If you have transcended all devices that is great. What is not great is if you argue for the removal of such devices (including Osho’s entire finger and the rest of his anatomy) then you are doing a disservice to the rest of the lesser conscious humanity.

    The way i understand the human mind and its logical and emotional aspects, the present day resort will survive at the most till Jayesh’s life time.

    He knows how to rule with the iron fist in a velvet glove, but after him, the thunder majority will turn the place in its original form because the people will prefer the signatures of dead Osho than a dead Jayesh. This is a 100% reality and my common sense forcasting is based on this.

    Shanti dear,
    life does not ¨provide always what we like.
    The people who don’t like something today because they think it is dark also get their turn tomorrow to have the sun light.

    The rise of rajneesh and emotional frenzy built on the rage of many has its own reality, and this reality will get its piece of cake too. After all Osho as it is now is a joint venture between all his people.When two polarities are created it becomes meditation to stay in the middle.
    Without being part of any group, any tribe (for more than two years i was even doing the secretary work for Neelam and Zareen at the same time and watching the cat fight between two arch rivals)
    my heart has made the resolution out of some inner convictions to enter the ashram gates only, when the system is a bit more open, humane and transparent, when the people on the opposite spectrum are also embraced.
    And this i have felt without any ill will towards anybody. In my most personal moments,i find me sleeping in Buddha hall or in the Osho Auditorium with same peace and yet with less snoaring (thanks to fisherman’s mint)
    This is my Indian way of life too; unity in diversity. When i enjoy the benefits of the western technology and its medical science wonders, i can tell happily to my inner child, when he asks, what India has given to the world. it is about Osho and his immense diversified vision about spirituality and about all of us.
    Does it not make western people wonder that how a small country (geographically) like India, allows so many languages, cultures, religions, tribes etc. to live as a beads of a Mala. Osho is a soul personified of this land and culture.
    If someone has not read the novel Shantaram, i wish to recommend with folded hands. (Shantaram is not just a book; it is a sojourn, a spiritual journey into life that shows that even the most complex and powerful systems have at their core a simple and beautiful pattern. As a great poet had once said “Simple is the seal of truth, and beauty is the splendour of truth.” Shantaram reinforces one’s belief in those words.)

    So my dear, i hope soon we see a day, when we meet inside the ashram gates…it will happen as we are suppose to go for a ashram style date. God bless !

  248. Satya Deva says:

    Anurag has misinterpreted a few things about Osho, is way off track in fact (imho).

    Too weary this late at night to go into it, except to highlight an elementary factual error:
    Poona 1 lasted from early/mid 1974 – 1981, ie 7 years, not 4.

    Not too impressive….

  249. Shanti says:

    I never said anything about removing the finger, abhay, I just said do not munch on it. In the ashram Osho is everywhere as an inspiration and in white robe every night.
    Just let us not eat fingers. that is all.

    Shantam. if people then reverse things to the old ways, so be it. I am for change all the time. i do not feel attached to any way in particular…My own silence and meditativeness is my home, the rest, just contexts and opportunities.
    regarding the ashram date… deal shantamy!
    so long for now.

  250. prem bubbie says:

    Hey Sw. Anurag, You’re a dick head!!! Back in those days each and every sannyasin knew what they were getting into when they decided to take sannyas. Rolls Royces and all!!! I knew about it, I knew that any money that went to RFI might go to buy another Rolls for Osho, so did every single person. Same with all the sex, drugs, prostitution, and other shady activities. We all knew what the general tone was besides doing our best to be meditative and working towards a higher plane of existence, we still are lowly and pathetic beings but we were a great deal more honest and realistic than other “spiritual” groups. So stop the bullshit puritanical and communistic P.R. Are you actually a sannyasin or are you a Religious Right psyco trying to infiltrate sannyas webs sites? Go back to your populist closet, please!!!!

  251. prem bubbie says:

    Abhay: You’re a sucker!! A sucker is born every minute!!! Anurag’s rants are NOT facts at all. Osho’s early years are not hidden. A chump like me knows much of the early years. Back in the late 70′s and early 80′s anyone could find out about Osho’s early years, you could read about them or what I did, was to talk to those who were around him back then. Very Simple. But for lazy and stupid people it’s easier to believe some dumb ass’s fantasies. The more you speak Abhay the dumber you sound!!!!

  252. garimo says:

    “…I knew that any money that went to RFI might go to buy…”

    Remember the ariplanes that used to fly over dropping zillions of rose pedals during drive by on festival days… What fun was that!?!

    Cocolate chip bread at tea time?

    Yes, we all knew, as it was made very clear. We were there to support the commune. It was not there to support us.

  253. amrito says:

    my god…

    now I realize completely the idiocy of Swami Rajneesh and his gang.

    He gives the entire sannyas and Osho a black eye and reminds me of a sinister male version of sheela.

    Holy shit…why do such idiots grow like poisonous fungus and beautiful trees?

    Anurag you are a blatant liar and full of complete shit!!

    Rajneesh wants to be a pope and the rest of his flock want to be bishops and nuns!

    Uh oh—-i smell a Jesus Re-Run and Rajneesh is playing the part of St. Paul—the one who fucked everything up for Christ.

    Hopefully this Rajneesh niche (Raj-niche?) remains transparently stupid the way it is now !

I still can’t find chocolate chip bread anywhere even though I told the basic recipe to several local bakers—too bad–yum yum!!! With a little more proactive and conscious effort of those of us at the ranch, things could have worked out.

  257. prem bubbie says:

    Dear Swami Rajneesh, Meera, Prem Abhay, “Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me”. I am happy some people on this thread can see a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Being obsessed with all sorts of things dulls one’s own natural instincts. For Rajneesh, it’s his obsession for taking Osho’s place as chief guru and Emperor of the resort. Prem Abhay’s obsession has been with clean water in a country that’s filled with shitty water. Meera’s obsession with butt-licking Rajneesh hoping to be in rajneesh’s inner circle. Anujrag obsession with Karl Marx and the incorporation of Marxism into the resort’s daily routine. May I recommend a coffee enema for Anurag that I hope reaches his brain, you need a thorough catharsis pal!! My advice for those Ruskies paying preemo rubles for Mr. Nice Guy Populist Rajneesh’s groups. Save your pension money and buy some vodka instead. When you’re good and drunk you’ll realize that what Rajneesh is saying is all gibberish whether one’s drunk or sober. Mozoltov !!!!

  258. shantam prem says:

    Good morning in Europe, happy hussle and bussle of life in India,

    For me in the whole discussion, the paragraph below from Shanti makes quite a sense and shows Osho’s style.
    Nothing lasts for ever. Change is the only permanancy and we must go on experimenting with different tools till nothing is left.

    “if people then reverse things to the old ways, so be it. I am for change all the time. i do not feel attached to any way in particular…My own silence and meditativeness is my home, the rest, just contexts and opportunities”.

  259. shantam prem says:

    Anurag,
    Last evening i have got the reply from our fellow traveler Rajneesh, regarding my question about getting the head or 69
    Here is the answer to enjoy, feel wow or to do the post martum!

    my beloved friend Shantam
    ah yes it is you…well well…well…

    sorry a very difficult question as the only number i know is 0
    i am very weak in maths and cannot count after 7…
    so 69 ways to awakening is extremely complicated…
    and then i will have to do all these gymnastics twists and huff and puff
    also ??

    we all know that i can barely manage to even walk !!

    the day i drowned into the black hole and imploded into zero…
    i lost all track of counting and hufffing and puffing…

    too much effort for a lazy man like me…i am bone lazy…
    infact i am a loser as i have lost everything and am floating free…

    i am simply a zero
    no pop star or guru or master…
    just an ordainary man living this zero
    blissfully dissolved into the grace of my beloved master Osho

    now i am not saying that i am celebate…
    just a celebrant…celebrating the orgasmic zero…

    everything is an orgasm for me…
    the sunset the river the flowers the beauty that surrounds me…
    all around me is orgasmic dancing light
    exploding into orgasm…and bliss….and bliss…bliss…

    now for the serious part of your question
    i will let you into a secret…
    just for a friend…and to help you in your book…

    in my earlier days of counting and huffing puffing…
    i coined the word ” the hot dog ”
    and that is why my friends used to call me ” the hot dog ” !!

    ( and remember i am the first to use it and is a rajneesh copyright term )

    now we all know what is ” a sandwich ”
    now…what is ” the hot dog ” ?

    One Guy…
    Four Chicks…one from each direction
    the Guy in the middle is ” the hot dog ”

    groovy huh ?? wanna play hot dog ??!!!

    always with love a friend and fellow traveller Rajneesh

    you want to know how i manage so you can keep it up and going ??
    we all know that punjabis have strong parts and their machines are well
    oiled !!

  260. Prem Abhay says:

    Amrito, coming from a fool, and especially coming from a fool with the same name as thee doc, I can only receive your witless comment as a complement.

    Just a hint for you Amrito….you say that I am a waste of time to read. Why are you still frustrated? Presumably you are still reading what I have written. Is it that you are incapable of using the scroll function on your computer or do you know that what I write is the truth and that pisses you off? Of course I assume you are not reading this and therefore will not reply. That would not frustrate me in the least.

    As far as your analogy goes with global warming and exploitation of natural resources, the pattern of greed or lust for wealth and power and domination that JA&Gang emulate is driving many multi-nationals and countries like China to fuck up the planet for everyone else. Good point Amrito.

    Prem Bubbie you are too angry at the world of Osho sannyas to consider having a sense of community. Your anger wants to destroy social relations.

    The focus has been on the over-extension of JA&Gang into spiritual matters. How do all the Osho therapists stack up? I would not know because the time that I was ripped of by a bunch of ignorant therapists I was ignorant myself. They convinced me that I was stupid and that they would save me in just few short expensive groups and then sessions and then more groups, and on and on. Of course when I dropped the show I was running away from my problems, and have been ever since. Funny however, I actually feel a whole lot better for it. Swami Rajneesh has raised this issue and I think it deserves much more attention. Of course why would not the pattern from JA&Gang be replicated to the conforming Osho therapists and Osho centres. Interesting thing is though, when you pull the bottom card out from a pyramid of lies, the whole structure falls down in a mess.

    Shantam you see the point, and express it well. It is just a shame not enough people do, else the change back to the path rather than the cliff is far off. This is why Shanti misses the point. It is possible to become enlightened in a Chinese gulag in Tibet. However it is much more likely sitting at the feet of the Dalai Lahma (in a monastery in Tibet). Prem Bubbie does not miss the point, but rather blasts it with rage.

    He is witty sharp and funny if you really know him.

  262. Kranti says:

    Swami Anurag

    ” Kranti You are putting out your own words and spin here ;

    NO.. This is exactly what was said by you on behalf of Rajnessh

    ” Yes Osho did not know what was not even aware of what he was doing is true.”

    Common Give me a break!! Anurag.. We are supposed to highly intelligent Osho sannyasins..

    Osho’s ” Awareness ” about what He was teaching / using devices has nothing to do with Osho knowing few FACTS about Sheela

    Common I cant belive this .. Osho said Enlightenment means He is aware of Himself / His true nature . It does not mean that His room was bugged.

    When I said Osho was aware of what He was doing I was reffering to the level his conciouness and Enlightened beings can not behave out of conditioning..The whole process of awareness is getting out of conditioned reactions.. Poor mans’s or Richa mans’s or whatever it is..

    ” are a collective heritage of this Earth from all the Past Buddhas and Enlightened ones.”

    Holy shit this collective heritage and all. So much for self importance and importance of sannyasins.. What about other human beings ? Are they not so valuable and should be removed from earth?

    As fasr as your DATA on number of years is concerned and logic I honestly dont the whether to laugh or cry in seeing the desparation behind that creating such stuff … Man! you are desparately in need of some points and you will go to any length..

    Osho was not popular to begin with , then somewhat popoular and famous and then notorious and then very famous ..So what ? Thats how every master grows.. How many people knew Buddha in early days , How many people knew Jesus in early days.. he even has track record of missing 7 years in between and stories to go along with it.. What are you trying to communicate using such data ?

    Such desperation to prove something against Osho .. Completely programmed by Rajneesh .. OR you may rajnessh himself posting in the name of Anurag..

  263. Swami Pavitro (Hawai) says:

    yes Anurag so why dont you stop answering for Sw Rajneesh and you are unconciously dominating him as he is still in the body and can speak for himself whenever he feels its needed to , we are here as individuals and on the path for ourself , so please be a witness ,only a request to you .

  264. Kranti says:

    Abhay

    I felt you could have had a spark of awakening and you were able to see some facts mentioned by Anthony.. Didnt expect the spark to go off this quickly.. But I also asked whether you really meant it as I was not sure ..

    OK… I accept you said those things sarcastically and didnt mean it

    I didnt say Osho vision is not clear.. I said He didnt have one .. He neither had vision or any teaching.. all this problems come out of the assumption that he had great vision and it encompassed all paths ..So every path should be allowed etc etc

    He simply wanted us to drop all nonsence and live ..not according to any vision but truth of the moment.. Thats it. period..

    Rest of the story is about devices he used..

    “popular saying of Osho’s that it is between the lines and between the words that really is the essence of his message: the empty space, the silence, the gaps”

    It is not only about Osho ..It is the same with all the masters.. inspite of this all the masters spoke because the disciples were not ready to sit in silence..

    If that was not required then there would not have been any need for masters , disciples , awakening etc.. All genuine masters spoke and used their speaking as devices. Thats why even a Buddha contradicted himself on the question of GOD.

    ” This is his guide-book for the present and the future humanity. This is his vision. It is a guide-book for dummies to get from darkness to eternity. ”

    This is a REAL STUNNER

    OSHO and GUIDE BOOK for FUTURE?????????

    Dear Abhay.. If we think Osho gave us a guide book We missed Osho so badly .. There is no space for discussions

    And I dont want to even touch that ” Whoever lost money into The Ranch should receive just compensation ” stuff.. May be you should have been born in the year 2205.. You are way ahead of your time..

  265. Kranti says:

    ” This is his guide-book for the present and the future humanity. This is his vision”

    I can recover from this..Hope you didnt mean it.. This is literally reducing Osho to a retired Scool teacher status..

  266. Kranti says:

    That Hot DOG is sheer mental indulgence.. there is no humour in it.. Osho asked us go past SEX and not to sit there and come p with fancy / imaginative explanations for SEX and that too for 4 guys / 1 girl type of stuff..

    And then we blame on Osho himself for all the ugly jokes we want to tell . Osho still has to suffer for all the devices he used / things he spoke … from his own sannyasins.. Too bad..

  267. Kranti says:

    Swami Anurag

    Please dont glorify the ugly jokes of Sw Rajnessh ..Those are disgusting stuff

    I recently came across suggested books for reading in a self development website .. there were number of books and very brief description of the books .. there was one Osho book with this explanation

    The Book is From Sex to Superconciousness

    This is the description

    ” I took the book and read page after page .. One thing I couldnt find in that whole book is SEX. ”

    Such a Beautiful understanding from the reader.. he is not even a sannyasin..But He took Osho and put him in such a respected position

    What we see here is all ugly / perverted jokes / body parts cutting stuff and then blame everything on Osho as though he asked us to keep coming up with such things

  268. frank says:

    anusrag,
    thanks for filling us in about how funny rajneesh`s joke is.
    we would never have known otherwise,for sure.

    that`s some great material you`ve got there. there!

  269. Prem Abhay says:

    Kranti you say….I didnt say Osho vision is not clear.. I said He didnt have one .. He neither had vision or any teaching.. all this problems come out of the assumption that he had great vision and it encompassed all paths ..So every path should be allowed etc etc….He simply wanted us to drop all nonsence and live ..not according to any vision but truth of the moment.. Thats it. period….Dear Abhay.. If we think Osho gave us a guide book We missed Osho so badly .. There is no space for discussions

    What do you think Osho was doing speaking to people all those years? What do you think is the purpose of all his books? You somehow think you have transcended all devices and now are beyond all methods other than living the truth of this moment. Osho could have said just that, and a few similar words would have been enough, enough that is for great wise people like Kranti.

    You have this whole vision thing mixed up. Of course Osho did not want anyone to live according to any vision, even if it came from him. This is however totally different from him providing a vision for people to learn how to live in the moment. This is the different between Osho’s discourse and books, and religious dogma. Religious dogma helps people become learned and give great speeches like the bishops, priests, and popes of this world.

    A Masters vision on the other hand allows seekers to find their way in the dark. Even when the Master has left the body, a seeker may find the perfect phrase or story or book to help them move forward when the way seemed blocked. This is Osho’s vision. This is why I referred to it as a guide-book. You have suddenly become egoistically wise, so why do you not burn all Osho’s books? Perhaps we can have a great celebration around the burning? That is after all what celebration is isn’t it Kranti?

    The following comments are arrogant and patronizing. They also fit with your current egoistic poise because the post is labelled after you and you may become a famous guru by appearing front page special on Osho Viha. If you think I am jealous you are sadly mistaken. I could not care less and could not be bothered with such matters.

    You arrogantly and patronizingly say:

    I felt you could have had a spark of awakening and you were able to see some facts mentioned by Anthony.. Didnt expect the spark to go off this quickly..

    I can recover from this..Hope you didnt mean it..

    Kranti who are you to make comments like that about me. Have we met before? If not, you know me by my writing here. Also, you could not even pick up on the sarcasm about Anthony because you just read the nice stuff I wrote and ignored the rest. This is what a judgemental mind does. It cuts out anything that does not fit with their fixed view of the world. What fits with their view it accepts. In this way you hold on to your fixed views and think that you become wise. This is what is currently happening to you. Your comments highlight this foolishness. It also shows again that you have not the capacity to be objective and impartial in this discussion. It also shows that you are becoming more rather than less impartial.

    Once again your ego is hurt.. I didnt say anything eprsonal about you.. I was hoping that post of your was what you mean.. later on you came and justified by saying you posted sarcastically and didnt mean it

    I said you seem to accept Anthony’s points for a moment only to see you taking it back and justifying it..

    ” What do you think is the purpose of all his books?

    What books you are talking about.? . Osho did not write any books.. His diciples recorded everything..

    He himself would have burnt everything and celebrated.. His people didnt allow.. Thats it..

    If you still think Osho had vision / guide book and all then its your trip..

    I am not a writer.. I would have contributed few jokes to viha…that too copy paste from Osho.. I myself dont think i can contribute anything useful..So you dont have to worry about that part

    God ! One guy is trying to become famous by speaking nonsense against Osho & using the sannyasin community , two people defending it left and right , another two setting up the foundation for democratic / legal / administrative system to support JUST in case if the Would-Be-Master clicks.. They also want to Finance it by getting compensation for the victimes of ranch and diverting the funds there ..

  274. Prem Abhay says:

    Once again your ego is hurt.. Kranti this is more of your patronizing arrogance.

    If your take of my comment about Anthony was that I seemed to adopt a wise and conscious viewpoint, and then reversed and went back into ignorance, then you are still reading what I write with a serious blind spot. This is your bias and your arrogance.

    Kranti obviously the Osho books are a transcription of spoken word. Do I have to spell out everything that is obvious, or is it again your arrogance that you assume that I have no idea?

    What would Osho have burnt….his books? He purposely had his books made in hard-cover. Do you think that that was so they could make a better fire, or so they could last a long time – because of their timeless quality?

    You say I do not have to worry about what you may write. I have been responding to a lot of your comments for only one reason. You have used a multitude of cunning mental strategies to avoid the central questions and answers concerning the Osho movement. Even the thread you started here was a deceptive emotional ploy. A few tears and we will all forget about the hard questions that were being asked. I respond to you because you are very deceptive. People need to be aware of this.

    OOOHHH!
    So hard to let go… it gets interesting again.

    Abhay, it is clear you were never at the ranch. I was not a permanent resident, but i went there as a temporary worker and also at the festivals.
    Regarding your lawsuit and having the money returned. We all new what was all about. We were not deceived. We were building our city, our world. I personally wanted osho to have one rolls for every time of the year. If I would have had the money I would have given it to him.
    It was great. We were the most intelligent and sexy spiritual group around. And our master was the funniest most provocative master ver.. and in a rolls… great!!

    As I said to a friend once when he asked me about being the disciple of the rich man`s and sex guru.

    I said: ” and what do you expect… if you are going to have a guru wouldn´t you choose the rich and the sex guru? what would you choose? the brick guru? the holy water guru? Come on, we had the best shown in town… and it was ours.

    We published whole page advertising in conservative newspapers in Oregon saying ” explore your sexuality”.
    We were not victims , we were eating the cake!
    And sannyas was a game that was played at ones own risk, there was not insurance, no guarantee, it was a pure jumping into the abyss, following this mad beautiful man. and we knew it…. and loved it.

    When it was over, I was sad, but I let it go. it was part of the game. Nothing to hold on, but your own inner silence… and still is with me.
    and yea chocolate chips bread mmmmh!

    Such a Beautiful understanding from the reader..
    he is not even a sannyasin..But He took Osho and put him in such a respected position

    Man Osho was for luxury and if you didnot like the trip, why on heart did you join the caravan. Just go to a nice swamiji sadhu somewhere. This trip is not for you!! This trip is for educated, wealthy, sexy, fun, light-deep people. Not for you dear.
    You seem too prude and puritanical.

  284. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanto for the FIRST time you are RIGHT

    YES….
    THIS TRIP !!!
    you are on a TRIP !!!!!

    This trip is for educated, wealthy, sexy, fun, light-deep people. Not for you dear.
    You seem too prude and puritanical.

    Sorry your soul mate Kranti is the pure and puritanical one here, so please help your fellow celebate friend Kranti beyond sex and get Osho into a respectable position in your society of believers.

    This pair rhymes perfectly well Kranti and Shanti

    Kranti Shanti made for each other

    Now you go the date you were looking for
    and a happy marriage with lots of cookies chocolate chip bread hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    What a show what a show

    Anurag

  285. Shanti says:

    Anusrag. if you wanted to be with osho you either had to have the resources or be willing to put your ass to work. Those were the conditions. And our master was frontal and open about that. he was not for the masses , he was for the elite. he called himself the rich man´s guru.. and he explained thoroughly what he meant by that, and why.
    If you did not like this. why on earth did you take sannyas? answer me this question.

    Osho was very clear on this point. He was not an ascetic sadhu. He did not give a shit about poor people. And he said it openly. You do not like it… well just do not become a sannyasin… very simple.

  286. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Now Shanti is coming out
    and talks the truth finally here

    it is all about Shanti’s Elite Ego….

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    he was for the elite.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    He did not give a shit about poor people.
    And he said it openly.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    no need to add anything as all is clear now
    go enjoy your TRIP Shanti

    Anurag

  287. Shanti says:

    Anusrag… answer why did you take sannyas?

  288. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti is the real thing here
    No need for Amrito to help us anymore
    She can overturn any baboon circle

    She know Osho’s conditions and works her ass off
    or puts her Resourses to Work

    This Woman Rocks

    Shanti the Elite Ego Trip

    Wow what a show what a show

    Anurag

  289. Shanti says:

    Anusrag. Answer for once and for all. Why did you take sannyas if you did not like it?

  290. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    why i took sannyas ??
    not for the reasons you took sannyas !!!

    and as far as i can understand you are not a sannyasins but on an ego trip

    bye bye Shanti
    You are too poor to attack
    so just forget all about it

    Anurag

  291. Shanti says:

    Man you must have taken sanyyas after osho was dead… or through some other guruji. Because obviously you do not like Osho´s way…
    Babe you are in the wrong crowd here… go join the lunghi baba..

  292. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti i am being compassionate

    and you do not know any Osho way or any way whatever and you are totally lost and lonely

    and Osho is not DEAD
    I am a devotee and lover of Osho

    He is alive for me in my heart in my tears in my joy and in my songs in my dance and in my devotion and in my surrender. My Master Osho is alive for me !!

    i am totally in LOVE with OSHO
    and not in LOVE with the Baboons circle who are destroying his living message of love and celebration

    You are the Inner Circle baboon types and lost and loveless who need no Master and are enough unto yourself ego.

    Crowd what Crowd ??

    I am an Individual here…
    you are with that crowd of baboons and buffons
    so in your words i say Get Lost Shanti

    Anurag

  293. Kranti says:

    ” Rajneesh Hotdog was 4 Chicks and One Guy”

    OK..then what you guys are doing with that guy.. Send 4 chicks to him and forget all about it..

    Anyway.. Leave me out.. I am NOT into your kind of trips..

    I do have my trip with Osho and I am more than happy with that ..

  294. Kranti says:

    Anurag ..If what you said is true ” I am a devotee and lover of Osho ” then it is not reflecting in your posts here ..thats much is certain..you seem to hate Osho for so many things..

  295. Kranti says:

    Oshobob.. that Bodhidharma stories?

  296. Anand says:

    I am listening to Osho….beautiful words of eternal wisdom. They enrich me and let me grow.
    I am reading these threads and they make me feel sick. Pure vomit of unenlightened minds. The same players Prem Shantam, Kranti, Abhay,
    Rajneesh throw their mind garbage on these pages, instead of doing Dynamic
    Meditation. Nobody seems to ready their own stuff and creates a bit of enlightening message. Just pure mind shit.
    There are some issues, which would be interesting to follow up: the water issue, the issue of the banned sannyasin etc.
    But it all gets buried under the urgent need to profile themselves by these same old very frustrated souls….

  297. Kranti says:

    What to do Anand..We started off few months ago with focus on few subjects. We got diverted .. I was reacting more and more to the posts..

    Thats I why tried focusing on my inner feelings & connectedness with Osho by posting this thread … Now hopefully i am out of those things..At the most i want to restrict myself to some good sharing.. I am looking forward to some sharing with Frank & Oshobob now on few facst related to Bodhidharma and Zen ..

  298. Shanti says:

    Anurag. You do not love Osho, You love an idea you have of Osho. because you do not like him, his actions.
    and it is ok. you right to feel that way, But answer a straight question
    If you do not like osho´s actions why did you take sannyas?

  299. garimo says:

    >>bye bye Shanti
    >>You are too poor to attack
    >>so just forget all about it
    >>Anurag

    Shanti,
    He wasn’t there and doesn’t know that it was a place different than anything we imagined now or then. There’s no way for there to be any shared understandings between experience and no experience.

    I don’t know where this notion of attacking that which is not understood comes from, but it does appear to be a pattern of the supporters of that guy Rajneesh (my first time referring to him) From my limited observations, I’m concluding it’s a bit of a shared behavior learned from the same source.

    A new thread added to this tattered fabric of sannyas. A bit like a piece of new thread mending a old cloth. It’s there, the thread and cloth are now a part of each other, but will never be the same as each other.

    Times are still interesting… though there’s no sharing chocolate chip bread and tea times any more.

    -g

  300. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shanti . You do not love Osho.
    You love the idea you have of Osho.

    I am looking at the ground reality of sanyasins
    and the ground reality is unloving and ungrateful people like you and the Inner Circle of Baboons
    who think that they are enough unto themselves
    and do not need a Master anymore

    Osho is my Master
    The Inner Circle is not my master and my attack is against the Inner Circle and thereby also some actions of our Master that have led us to where we are today. Actions which allow the Inner Circle to destroy Osho vision.Remember Osho promised no more controllers and dictators like Sheela ever again.
    And here we are repeating the same ugly pattern of power that corrupts and dominates over others.

    So naturally i will also contemplate and see the negative actions and mistakes that were left behind by Osho himself and these are facts all sannyasins need to consider and see and debate openly.

    Blindness is obedience and slavery
    Eyes Open is the way of a sannyasin.
    and even if that means look at the obvious mistakes
    of Osho like in the case of Sheela.

    So there is perfect harmony in me and my sannyas
    and i love Osho as a Master
    but i also remain open to see his mistakes and the ground reality sannyasins are in today,
    But you cannot understand this as a disciple
    and thus you are just an obedient slave which makes you a blind worshipper which is not the way Osho wants a sannyasin to be.

    Anurag

  301. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Yes Garimo we are all learning from the wisdom of Rajneesh who was with Osho since 1980 and knows what he is talking about.
    And not only me but also hundreds of ols sannyasins and new sannyasins are gathering in this new fire of rebelllion and the rebelious spriit.
    Just wait and see how this soon overtakes and becomes a new movement of Osho alive again for thousands of Osho lovers thirsty for truth and vision and wisdom of the New Man that Osho envisioned.
    Rajneesh is that New Man coming
    otherwise you can choose Amrito the Baboon
    the Old Man dead and buried and hiding now.

    Anurag

  302. shantam prem says:

    My God, Osho has become a horse in the race course, everybody can bet on the poor dog.

    Anurag it seems you are getting sandwitched between Osho and Your new guru, mixing cocktail of energy and feeling high.

    I think in the archievs of sannyasnews there is one long thread written by RANI, once she was what rajneesh or others are now.

    I could not find it again, but it is worth reading. when honesty radiates from words, words become sacred, otherwise words are nice for pornography, spiritual or otherwise.

  303. shantam prem says:

    correction -on the poor horse

  304. Shanti says:

    Anusrag
    About the ranch

    Where you there when the sun was setting in the horizon drawing looong shadows to the juniper trees?

    Where you there when your master looked straight in to your eyes with a grin?

    Where you there when a wave of red people descended the slope of the hill and your heart was throbbing with love and joy for your friends and fellow travelers?.

    Where you there when you harvested the carrots you yourself planted last year?

    Where you there when life was so full, rich and adventurous that you felt your heart could not take more?

    Where you there when after working for 12 hours a day you still wanted to dance madly until 2:00 am in the disco because life was now.

    Where you there when you felt YOU were building your world.

    When you there when the silence of your meditation was shared by 16.000 other people?

    Where you there when you felt your master was the most iconoclastic, outrageous, and funny person you could be with?

    Where you there when you saw the feet of rolls royces and you master dressed in a bright robe, with diamonds watches, and you felt we were joking with the stars

    Where you there when drunk cowboys with rifles chased you down the dirt road because you were “better dead than read”.

    and finally were you there when at the end of long day of work with your friends… you felt the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip bread

    If you were not…

    then you have no right to speak about it.

  305. shantam prem says:

    Rajneesh is that New Man coming…

    it is true. With people like Anurag and Meera kid,
    history will remember him as Bin laden of Osho movement.

    And i am sure, rajneesh is a this much intelligent that he will stop this crap, people are saying on his behalf.

    It is true that J&A team need the forces of check and balance, otherwise their ego will go beyond limit, but Euphoria around one person is going a bit too far.

  306. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Shantam

    Bin Laden is already in control of the Resort !!

    Look at these Inner Circle dictators who control and make restrictions and bannings and the ” no this no that rules” and ugly patterns of enforcement in the Enforcement Resort
    Look at the Osho movement and their effects today in Osho centers worldwide of fear if they do not sign the letter of understanding ( Amrito Understanding )
    and you can see Bin Laden shadows all over the Osho world.
    The new Taliban is this enforcement regime
    which is creating the new ” Enforced NO Religion ”
    A No Religion movement which is fanatical and dictatorial and fear of banning is their blackmail and weapon to control sannyasins.

    Aanurag

  307. garimo says:

    Yuck,
    another missionary on a mission, off to change the world.

    I’ll not be joining your band wagon so to make more room for you and your friends. It’ll be a win=win situation for us both.
    I’ve been around enough to see when someone is repeating things I’ve already learned from Osho. I know how to be a zero too.
    enjoy the ride.

    “And not only me but also hundreds of ols sannyasins and new sannyasins are gathering in this new fire of rebelllion and the rebelious spriit.
    Just wait and see how this soon overtakes and becomes a new movement of Osho alive again for thousands of Osho lovers thirsty for truth and vision and wisdom of the New Man that Osho envisioned.
    Rajneesh is that New Man coming”

  308. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    No Shanti i was not there !!

    So please enjoy your dreams if it makes you happy and have as many chocolate chips as you desire

    Osho’s dream is not in our dreaming
    Awakening is the dream of Osho

    But enjoy your dream and go into the silent night
    And soon the time will come to be shaken out of the dream and the chocolate chips will not be that sweet

    But dream on and on and on
    so sweet dreams in the Ranch

    Anurag

  309. garimo says:

    >>>Rajneesh is that New Man coming
    >>otherwise you can choose Amrito the Baboon
    >>the Old Man dead and buried and hiding now.

    I see many more options.
    I’m not so poor and limited as that.
    My life is over flowing with options.

  310. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Garimo
    I’ve been around enough to see when someone is repeating things I’ve already learned from Osho.
    I know how to be a zero too.

    Yes this zero you mean is that coward who is afraid to speak up against the Resort Baboons.

    And learnt enough to see Sheela type dictators repeat history i presume.

    Anurag

  311. garimo says:

    “i am simply a zero
    no pop star or guru or master…
    just an ordainary man living this zero”
    Sw. Rajnessh

    Would you like me to provide you with references of the many times Osho is speaking of being a zero that your new guru is repeating?
    I’ll search for you if you’d like…

  312. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    So Garimo
    Now does Rajneesh have to create a new dictionary
    and all new terminology also
    now that Osho used that word or number Zero ??

    And where did Osho borrow all his words and concepts and terminologies ect from, those 100,000 books that he read from his library huh ??

    And how about all the sutras and discourses on all the major religions of the world, Buddha, Mahavir ,Zen, Tao, Sufi, Upanishads, Jesus, Kabir Meera, Nanak,
    all were his original works and original ideas and never used any of those old sutras??

    So why cannot Rajneesh use the word Zero
    also as his own experience of the same Zero ??

    Did Osho invent the term Zero ??

    What stupid children we have here.

    Anurag

  313. garimo says:

    Dude! didn’t you just tell me my options were the “new Rajneesh” or resort baboons?

    Now you want to tell me there is a whole history of options?!

    Thank you.
    I knew we could find a shared understanding somewhere.

  314. garimo says:

    choosing rajneesh as your option = cool.
    telling me he’s my option = not cool

    get off my freedom.

  315. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Garimo Dude

    Who said the message was
    Only For You Personally ??

    This is an open sannyasin forum and hundreds read all these messages. Atleast you have many options and that is perfectly great and wise understanding which i fully appreciete and love this open view.

    But what i am pointing to is that there are
    No Options at the Resort which i was led to understand was Osho Resort or Ashram
    and not Amrito Resort
    and just Zen according to Amrito

    Anurag

  316. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Wow Garimo is on Fire here

    ” Get Off My Freedom ”
    sounds very couragageous

    Was that a message for The Resort Baboons
    Then we are really talking Dude !!
    This Fire is Cool !!! Dig the Vibe ??

    Anurag

  317. garimo says:

    Garimo Dude

    >Who said the message was
    >Only For You Personally ??>

    Maybe this is a new understanding I need to learn.
    I always thought when someone uses my name they’re talking to me… not just talking at others.

    >Yes Garimo we are all learning from the wisdom of Rajneesh who >was with Osho since 1980 and knows what he is talking about.

    So feel the heat.
    and re-examine your understandings.

  319. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    So your ” Get Off My Freedom ”

    Was just a soft feeler for me ??

    Oh just when i was giving you
    some credit for courage

    Oppsy Poopsy Poop

    Anurag

  320. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Garimo

    I should feel the heat ??
    Or Amrito who is hiding and re- examining his cowardice and delusion in power ??

    The one who feel the heat hides

    I am here on the forum
    and so is Rajneesh open and challenging

    Where is feeling the heat
    and who is cooking whom ???’
    As Rajneesh calls it roating.

    Anurag

  321. garimo says:

    >Was just a soft feeler for me ??

    no dear,
    it was for me.

    You’re about you.
    I’m about me.

  322. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Ok Garimo

    you and me are not 2
    but One buddhafield

    interdependant interlinked interwoven as One

    but i accept your friendship and gentleness

    love Anurag

  323. garimo says:

    I guess there also are many options for re-examining too.

    One option is to examine yourself… another is being occupied with others outside of yourself.

    Freedom is great. Consequences vary.

  324. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Garimo
    I like your clarity and silent approach here

    What are your opinions on the Inner Circle Mandate ??

    Anurag

  325. garimo says:

    >Ok Garimo

    > and me are not 2
    >but One buddhafield

    >interdependant interlinked interwoven as One

    >but i accept your friendship and gentleness

    >love Anurag

    Then why do you speak so ugly to others hearts that I share?

  326. shantam prem says:

    Anurag, you hav enot answered, are you on the facebook?

    I think many of us would like to see your face.

  327. garimo says:

    I’m here now.
    You’re here now.

    >What are your opinions on the Inner Circle Mandate ??

    It’s about you and me. Not the imaginary “Them” out there.

    I know nothing of a inner circle mandate. It is not with in me. Anything I think about it will come from my imagination.

    If you are asking me about what I think about you thinking about it… I’d have to say “let it go.”

  328. prem bubbie says:

    Yes, I am angry, focused anger…. it goes straight to the point, no bullshit, no political correctness, no beating around the bush. When i read the bullshit and insane fantasies from guys like rajneesh and anurag anger is there. That’s telling it like it is. I’m beginning to believe that some “sannyasins” posting here are not sannyasins at all. The sannyas community is still on the terrorist watch list and given the notorious past reputations of various intelligence agencies, i would not be surprised if some people posting or reading here are working for these agencies in order to “disrupt” and make false allegations and spread lies about Osho, the ranch and pune. Maybe Anurag and rajneesh and meera are covert ops. The shit coming from Anurag especially, leads me to believe he is one. Nice try ASSHOLE!!!!! Get your facts straight before you post, you’re not fooling anyone except Prem Abhay. Nice to see fellow seekers putting the truth back into this thread. Better Red than Redneck!!!

  329. Shanti says:

    Anurag it is not a dream. It was our reality.
    We helped build the soil where you stand in the sannyas movement.

    I said, AGAIN:

    Where you there when the sun was setting in the horizon drawing looong shadows to the juniper trees?

    Where you there when your master looked straight in to your eyes with a grin?

    Where you there when a wave of red people descended the slope of the hill and your heart was throbbing with love and joy for your friends and fellow travelers?.

    Where you there when you harvested the carrots you yourself planted last year?

    Where you there when life was so full, rich and adventurous that you felt your heart could not take more?

    Where you there when after working for 12 hours a day you still wanted to dance madly until 2:00 am in the disco because life was now.

    Where you there when you felt YOU were building your world.

    Where you there when the silence of your meditation was shared by 16.000 other people?

    Where you there when drunk cowboys with rifles chased you down the dirt road because you were “better dead than read”.

    and finally were you there when at the end of long day of work with your friends… you felt the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip bread

    AND I WILL ADD ONE MORE

    where you there putting your ass in the front line When CIA Black helicopters flew over the ranch just meters over our heard at night?
    I was part of the peace force and was in the helicopter with I Kutteer guarding over Osho in his Drive bys

    It is so easy ro speak about what you do not know Anurag

    I say agian: If you were not…

    then you have no right to speak about it.

  330. Shanti says:

    … and still we let it all go and went dancing to the next adventure.

    So you and abhay who want compensation and lawsuits for something you never sweated… following the sleff righteous attitude of the rajneesh con…
    Get lost!

  331. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Prem Bubbie is back frustated and boiling with anger and rage at the way she she was booobied by Rajneesh and ran away

    Finally she has come back with her new
    Terrorist Theory after some heavy investigations
    at her boobie station with Resort and deep consultations in secrecy of the
    Osho Guidlines with Amrito

    Have the Inner Circle Baboons Terrorists plot
    finally been uncovered now Boobie ??

    Who are now on that list ??
    Or is it a secret guidline in Amritos secret dairy.

    This debate has some new blood and new fire
    and anger with concrete evidence
    of the terrorist plots unfolding here,

    so welcome to Boobie with the facts finally uncovered
    who has also learnt a new word to add to her vocabulary and that too in capital letter to get full mileage to her terrorist plot revelations.

  332. garimo says:

    Anurag,

    If you are willing… would you please describe one occasion when you have been at the resort in pune and your personal enjoyment or experience had in anyway what so ever been interfered with by Amrito or the other management baboons in any department? How did you handle it in that moment?

    It would help me to accept and understand your emotional state of hostility if it were based in a personal experience for you.

    Am I correct in assuming you have been to the resort?

    Thanks,
    -garimo

    (my spell check always wants to change “anurag” to “enrage”… but really you don’t seem to need any such help in that area)

    You are a basket case Anurag!!! Halloween is approaching, no need to get into costume. Anurag–the pissed off trickster.

  334. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Prem Bubbie opps forgot Prem Boobies
    is into HALLOWEEN again

    BOOBIE in the past thread says:
    Halloween is coming soon, so if anyone is going to a costume party get dressed as Osho(Mr. Rajneesh can help there). Imagine hundreds of Osho look-a-likes, I bet even Mr. Rajneesh couldn’t be distinguished from the rest. That will get him pretty pissed-off I bet. What a big Ego!!!! You’re small potatoes pal!!! Satya: What drugs have you been taking?

    RAJNEESH said :
    now one special halloween joke
    just for prem bubbie
    she goes undressed
    hidden under two huge orange pumkins
    and everyone knows it prem boobies
    imagine hundreds of pumpkin boobies look-a-likes
    a real scary halloween !!
    trick or treat anyone ??

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    This year is going to be a very sacry Halloween specially as Boobies is going with her
    Hanging Pumpkins scary costume
    and all the childern are stayng home.

    Seems Boobie cannot find a boyfriend
    and is anxiously waiting for Halloween
    to flaunt her Hanging Pumpkins

    come again Boobie ??

    Anurag
    but thanks Boobie for the good advice that i do not need to get into costume and will stay home
    hidden in my basket

  335. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    I feel Very sorry for you Shanti when you say :

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    where you there you putting your ass in the front line When CIA Black helicopters flew over the ranch just meters over our heard at night?
    I was part of the peace force and was in the helicopter with I Kutteer guarding over Osho in his Drive bys

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Looks like you went to battle and joined the Army,
    so now you need some De-Hypnotherapy under Amrito to remove these deep scars of
    ” putting your ass in the front line
    with CIA helicopters behind your ass ”

    Wow what a Thrill and what an Achievement to protect Osho in his drive byes with your ass in the front line.

    Sounds like you enjoyed the army recruitment and all your posts show a battle hardened woman ready to take on the CIA.

    If you are willing… would you please describe one occasion when you have been at the resort in pune and your personal enjoyment or experience had in anyway what so ever been interfered with by Amrito or the other management baboons in any department? How did you handle it in that moment?

    It would help me to accept and understand your emotional state of hostility if it were based in a personal experience for you.

    Am I correct in assuming you have been to the resort?

    Thanks,
    -garimo

  337. Yes..

    Rajneesh is the new men which Osho was pointing at.

    Remember the last few statements of Osho “Perhaps you will come across an another man like me”

    Garimo

    The moment i entered the Resort
    i passed a white haired man looking sternly at me
    and rudely asked me to remove my Osho Mala
    saying Indians were just blind and devotional
    and Osho was not for my ” Indian types ”

    I found out it was a man called Amrito

    I simply left quietly and will never return
    to such a place again that is so condemnatory
    and judgmental for just wearing an Osho mala

    After leaving i have met many sannyasins and spoken to many on blogs in the Osho movement .
    Then onwards i met many people who have similar stories of such attacks and bad behaviour about Amrito

    Then i fortunately read Tears of the Mystic Rose
    and met Swami Rajneesh and found him
    to radiate Osho and always felt his love and devotion
    for Osho in all his words and actions.

    He only spoke of Osho and was always shy about himself and about his inner experiences and always stated to me that it was the love of Osho that i saw
    and nothing else.That he was just a hollow bamboo allowing Osho to flow through him.

    Slowly i began to see the same attacks on him and i know him personally and know that he only shares his love for Osho and is being brutally attacked with lies and propaganda against him by the Inner Circle

    i hope you understand that Amrito is the cause of many such cases of people leaving the place and thus is spreading everywhere from what i see and read.
    Amrito is biased egoistic and racist

    ”Anurag it is not a dream. It was our reality.
    We helped build the soil where you stand in the sannyas movement._________________________________________
    then you have no right to speak about it.”

    Ma Shanti , l have been part of the ranch , but you seem to be going too far by speaking about rights, we somehow cant take the credit even if we were there we cannot fool the (specially new) sannayassins by such statements.lam sure you didnt pay attention to my previous comments , and maybe will conviniently not pay attention even on this one ,but lam glad l did convey this to others who are here .

  340. garimo says:

    Anurag,
    Thank you for sharing your story. I feel valued and considered by your answers to my questions.
    I imagine the encounter with Amrito felt very insulting and it sounds like it wasn’t the welcoming you would have liked.
    I think I would have wanted to feel more considered and cared for like any other lover of Osho.

    I’m able to understand you having feelings of resentment… only from living with plenty of my own, and have in the past reacted in ways I no longer do since they weren’t strategies that were meeting the needs I wanted met. I’ve learned to no longer trust that sannyasins are friends just because we share a master. Friends are friends.

    I’m wondering if the crazy vicious talk to others is a strategy that is meeting your needs? Does your spirit/being feel expansive or restricted, content? Are you clear on what your unmet needs are?

  341. Kranti says:

    Anurag.. I am with you as far as that incident is concerned..I know how bad you would have felt..It s not that you did anythin bad..just wearing a mala which is personal way of relating with Osho. I will never justify such a treatment..

    Even If i see it in the context of what they are implementing ( That is where we have all the disagreements ) that could have been done in a polite way

    But i respect Shanti for all things she mentioned.. She is really feeling good about Ranch days.. As fsr as she is concerned every experience had been positive and she has every right ti live with thise feelings..

    And more importantly she is ready to accept responsibility for her life during the perios and she is not shifting the blame on Osho unconciously.

    What she was refering to as ‘ rights’ in my opinion is expressing from experience.. Especially because Anurag was so critical of Ranch and shifting all the blame on Osho, she seem to suggest she is aware of Ranch days better

    Thats what Osho tried to tell us.. Not shifting the blame on a FATHER figure

    When I tried to communicate i am always told I never lived with Osho and i can not speak about certain aspects … I accept/respect that and i restrict uself general understanding about Osho/vision and not specific facts / situations.. So it is the same logic..

    Anurag experience should be respected But he has no right to generalize everything because of his personal exerience and go to the extent of sayin Osho was responsible for the things now.. That is too judgemental on Osho himself and that comes from what He heard from Rajnessh not his personal experience..

  342. Alok john says:

    Anurag,
    You could always return to the Resort without the mala or with the mala hidden under your clothes. If you really wanted to meditate, you would put up with that nonsense.

  343. Shanti says:

    This is pity full. Looks like a Saturday Night Parody. But is true. It is supposed to be Osho enlightenment celebration, but rajneesh is the star of the show. He thinks that because he bends over in front of the picture and shouts a couple of osho´s then it is about Osho.
    He is just exploiting the sannyasins for his own benefit…

    Really sad

  344. amrito says:

    Hi Anurag,

    To keep things respectful and in-perspective, I can understand your experience at the resort. But whether or not it was the Doc or anyone else, I dont think I can say it was “racist” behavior.

    In fact when I was at the resort and I wore my mala, I remember sitting accross a few tables from Amrito-the doc, and him beeing not too concerned. However, its interesting to note that the rudest people at the resort were the Indians. They were the most arrogant and distasteful in their behavior.

    One Indian guy acted like a street bully when he told me to lose my mala and said it in the most disrpectful way. His buddy, another Indian guy, emediately saw that this guy was beeing pretty rude and tried to fix it by saying I could wear it. But the dude wouldnt stop and kept going on his power trip.

    See, although I love India and I’m ethnically from Nepal, there is alot of discrimination within our countries in regards to caste, race, finances and anything else you can think of.

    I am absolutely lucky to have been raised in a society like Canada where diversity is a cherished phenomenon, but even here I see alot of discrimination within ethnic communities. Be it the Indians, or the Sri Lankans or the Chinese. In the East we are accustomed to superestitious nonsense and hiearchy of status.

    So, I don’t know the other side of the story and don’t doubt Amrito-the Doc, may have been stern. But, he did choose an Indian master in an Indian country with an Indian name, so I dont think he’s pretty racist. But his own view is that the Mala is not appropriate within the resort.

    The same way, in Osho Tapoban, Nepal, if you are a Sannnyasin, a Mala is complusory. And i’m sure someone will tell you to put on your mala if you’ve taken sannyas, infact there are signs saying you must wear it within the commune.

    I love Sw. Arun, and his opinion is that a person who doesn’t wear a mala is not a sannyasin. Now, I obviously do not agree, but I’m making this point that people have differences in opinion about Osho and they impliment them, whether in Pune or Tapoban.

    In fact, in the West, its very difficult to introduce Osho as a master or guru to a mainstream audience…very difficult. Like there are niches who may understand, but if you are lookiing to spread Osho to today’s generation—another strategy is needed. Because Osho’s message is very contemporary, very beneficial, extremely practical–it shouldnt go to waste because of our own conditionings on “how” osho should be spread..

    Atleast thats a hypothesis of mine currently in formation.

    In the end Osho should be like a “free” market, where there aren’t barriers to entry in understanding Osho’s from one’s own perspective. And the maturity of understanding another perspective of this multi-dimensional master should be in every person, not the way it is now.

    Like yourself Anurag, you sound like a reactionary when anyone attacks Rajneesh. I dont even think you carefully look into the points raised here, you just seem to have a vested interested in defending him like he’s a pope. And maybe he’s not that bad, but all of his “bhikkhus” are certainly painting a rediculous image of the man.

    So I can understand Pune doing its thing—and Tapoban as well. I find these two places are truly spreading Osho with genuine intent! Ironically both are completely against eachother, but both are actively growing.

    -Amrito

  345. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Garimo and Kranti

    There is a a deeper matter that new sannyasins talk about which is actually putting off new seekers.

    We see people like Amrito who have been with Osho for 20 years or so when Osho was alive in the body and another 20 years now .
    We now see and hear that Amrito is a total drunkard and chain smoker and abusive dictatorial in his behaviour towards sannyasins.
    This is the main turn off for new seekers

    If this is the reality then why become a seeker at all ?
    Just to end up becoming an abusive drunkard ??

    To see such ugly disciples as caretakers of his Vision today is a message and worldwide signal of Osho’s failure. If this is the level of caretakers and they act like drunk dictators then these are the real enemies of Osho who are turning off new seekers

    New seekers want their freedom to choose without threats of fear of retribution and banning.

    New seekers and also need to be inspired to see beautiful examples and compassionate people who have been with Osho and to see taste touch and feel Osho through these living disciples.

    People like Amrito are certainly not inspiring disciples and are turning off new seekers.

    Then in sharp contrast when we see a sannyasin like Swami Rajneesh who is actually inspiring others to walk their walk and creating an openness in seekers are instantly attacked by all sannyasins without anyone really going to see for themselves.

    His book Tears of the Mystic Rose is truly inspiring to all who have read it and i have read hundreds of letters from people who have now come back into the movement just because they were inspired by his book and his open sincierity.

    I have met Swami Rajneesh and know myself that his life is an example for seeker who are now searching and his story is one of great significance for new seekers.

    It turns me off to see that the Inner Circle misuse Osho ‘s work to attack anyone that comes out into the world dancing and celebrating and expressing his love for Osho.

    Where are the promised sannyasins who inspire
    and are a bridge to the new seekers on the path ?

    The ones who will dare to come will be slaughtered
    by his own people, especially by those in power and others with their ugly vested interest.

    Osho’s message is about Thousands of Buddhas coming and here is the ugly truth !!!

    Thousands Buddhas and we cannot tolerate
    even one and are jealous and bitching about him.

    That is why Osho says that a Buddha will be misunderstood and that is fine by me.
    But if the Osho crowd use the Resort funds and the Osho Network to actively spread false propaganda then it is barbaric and ugly as Swami Rajneesh is a model sannyasin of Osho to which Osho himself had declared in the Buddha hall

    He has walked the path consciously for 29 years and lived by example his inner state of silence stillness and living vipassana

    If we want to see Osho dream alive then we need to protect these coming Buddhas
    which are His Dream and his Promise
    for the new people on the path.

    Otherwise we will create the greatest New No Religion
    and a controlled Vatican
    with Osho as the One
    and Only One begotten Son of God

    Remember Osho’s message is dead
    without any examples of sannyasins who inspire and create the longing in others that they have walked and are expressing their arrrival and their joy.

    This i feel is the message of Osho

    This is His dream to see living Buddhas
    walk and express their arrival in gratitude and joy

    Now you all can slaugter Rajneesh here
    and pay the price by killing
    your own Master and His Dream

    Anurag

  346. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    beloved Amrito from Canada Yes

    Again you agrue in favour of The Inner Circle
    and completely forget that they have NO RIGHT
    as their Mandate is Clearly Outlined by Osho Himself.

    They have no right to interfere into spiritual considerations and are only to take care
    of day to day managment.

    Have you completely ignored Osho’s Mandate
    and given the Inner Circle authority that they do not have in the first place ?
    Do YOU have the Authority to Override the clearly outlined Authority Osho has created and worded ?

    As far as Swami Arun is concerned he is not in charge of Osho’s legacy and is free to create the atmosphere of love and devotion in his ashram.His is not manuplating Osho’s future for millions of new seekers
    .
    Infact Swami Arun is brave and a true devotee of Osho and he is also banned like Swami Rajneesh

    Swami Rajneesh speaks highly of Swami Arun
    and their love for Osho is obvious and we should see that there are many other lovers of Osho who are not even accepted as Osho lovers.
    They are branded criminals and outlawed by the Poona Enforcement Gang

    Look at these matters clearly and you will understand that one cannot mix these issues.

    Anurag

  347. Alok john says:

    Anurag,
    Pune (and the Ranch) have always been very odd places full of very odd people.
    Who knows why Amrito drinks and smokes? Maybe it is to do with the stress of running that massive campus with so little support from sannyasins.

    Osho was always against judging other people. He was also against fighting oneself (this is tantra.) If Amrito needs to go through the experience of being a drinker and smoker, so be it.

    The fact is that Pune is still going after almost 20 years. The planet is full of difficult and damaged and immoral people, many of whom would be too much for Tapoban or the Indian communes, but who can be transformed in Pune. Pune can deal with the most difficult people, usually Westerners. It can help people who have never heard of the words meditation, witness, awareness, no-mind etc. For most western newcomers, Tapoban and the Indian communes would be too alien.

    In my opinion if someone gets banned it is because he has some ulterior motive for being there, because he is not really interested in being there to learn meditation and love. If someone wants to go there to do the meditations, groups etc, I think they won’t get banned.

    Dr Amrito wrote a great book : Bhagwan : The most godly man and the most godless man.

    Try to understand Osho’s teachings. They are not saccharine. They are more subtle than they first appear.

  348. Alok john says:

    Why would Sw Arun need to go to Pune? For what? His work is elsewhere.

  349. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Alok John says :
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Anurag, You could always return to the Resort without the mala or with the mala hidden under your clothes.
    If you really wanted to meditate, you would put up with that nonsense.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Atleast he agrees that it is nonsense,
    and suggests that i put up with that nonsense.

    Are you a dirty politician or a clever diplomat ?
    You seem to be very cunning and devious.

    Why should i hide my Mala ?
    Is it a Crime to wear one ??
    Should i hide it in shame ??

    If it is only a Resort then how do such Rules appply
    in a Resort anywhere in the world ??

    Infact i would like to ask Amrito here if Christians are allowed to wear their Jesus Cross in the Resort ??
    Are other people of other religions barred from any object they wear openly on their person ??

    Sheer Bullshit and Sheer Hypocracy and these are Racist Rules and not allowed in India or in any Resort anywhere in the world.

    These Baboons are overstepping their line
    and they need to remember that it is a Resort and such facilities should have regulations that are legal.

    The rules enforced at the moment are illegal
    if challenged in the courts of law
    will be termed racist and liable for procecution.

    Anurag

  350. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Alok John seems to be Amrito’s buddy
    both are British from what i can understand.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    The fact is that Pune is still going after almost 20 years

    That is the only miracle that Osho managed
    somehow inspite of these Baboons
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Dr Amrito wrote a great book : Bhagwan :
    The most godly man and the most godless man.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Yes Past Glory and those were the good old days when he was a devotee and has now gone completely astray and has become an alcholic chain smoker.
    Now he hates being a disciple and is enough unto himself as he states everywhere.
    Was he drinking heavily and smoking around Osho ??

    And remember a drunkard on the wheels is disaster
    and that is where we are headed now.

    Too much stress is creating tensions and alcholisim then he can become an ordainary disciple
    without any power or function and retire
    as he is not on a life mission
    or a devoute missionary posting to spread Osho message all his life
    Just Retire like others and go to the Pub in England and as Rajneesh says
    God Help the Queen and Three Hail Mary’s

    Anurag

    you also say :And why should Arun go to Poona,

    Because it is his freedom to go wherever he wants with no restrictions and he is also a disciple of Osho and the poona ashram is also his home and birthright to visit out of sheer rememberance and love

    Why do you go there ?? What is your work there ??

  351. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Infact i would like to ask Amrito here if Christians are allowed to wear their Jesus Cross in the Resort ??
    Are other people of other religions barred from any object they wear openly on their person ??

    Some more matters for clarification on Resorts
    which i received from Rajneesh a few days ago
    worth mentioning here.

    Osho suggested Aids Test as there was a large Commune in USA and also in India Ashram
    as there were many residents living at that time.

    Now it is simply a Visitors Resort.

    The Legal Rules and Law for AIDS Test
    are that It is not Mandatory but purely Voluntary

    Legally no one can Demand an Aids Test
    as a Pre- Requisite for gaining entry into a Resort
    as no one can Demand an Aids Test
    for Entry into a Hotel or any such establishment.
    This is Law.

    The Law does not allow anyone being forced
    to conform to any dress standards
    or uniforms in visiting ” a Resort ”

    The Law does not permit anyone from being stoppped from wearing any religious object or symbol on person
    in entering a Resort or Hotel or such places or establishment. That would be termed unsecular and against the law.

    Rajneesh has pointed various illegal issues
    that are now going to come to the courts

    So we keep learning everyday as to what are our legal rights and freedoms so we will all be set free
    from this Zoo of Baboons.

    Anurag

  352. Anand says:

    So Anurag was getting his first zen stick fast and directly from Amrito.
    Welcome to the Osho world of zen. One advise: when you hear the sound of the zen stick coming bow gently and let it pass. Your reactions show the hurt ego and no understanding into the works of the master. And by Master I mean Osho.
    Instead you were running into the arms of the pseudo master, who gratifies your ego with his ferry tales and now you cry against Amrito.
    Few points though ae interesting: if Jayesh, Yogendra and Amrito like to create a resort, then things like Aids Test, maroon robes sould be legally examined. Also the issue of banning. You can have a ashram with these rules, but they do not fit
    into modern resort, which starts to look like a spiritual Disneyland.

  353. Kranti says:

    I tottaly agree with Amrito

    If at there were rude people they were indians.. especially the one who live inside.

    I had bad experiences with them like Amrito mentioned.. They are very insensitive in so many ways..

    Secondly i was there in JUly and i saw people wearing mals freely..I even saw people who are long timers living inside wearing mala..there seems to be no problem.. I also saw people nanasteying the rolls & marbles and all.. No one seems to be objecting

    What personally Amrito does is none of our Business Anurag.. Osho is connected to every sannyasin individually and with each other.. We can not be that judgemental to define whether someone should drink & smoke or not..

    Anurag .. You seems to be very reactionary to whatever is being said and just doesnt seem to come down from anger.. And you love Rajneesh so be it.. But most of the people here are pointing it out the fact that Rajneesh also is very reactive and specifically in this forum he lost control in such a manner which is not believable…

  354. Kranti says:

    Amrito.. Thanks for pointing out the fact that mala is compulsory in Tapoban.. This is just an opposite of Pune and but no one seems to be speak agaisnt it..

    I am not suggesting they shoud speak against and change it.. But if that is acceptable why they should not accept pune suggesting that mala is not required especially in the context of what they are trying to do..

  355. No one has the right to ask any one to remove Osho Mala.

    Osho was all for freedom.

    This kind of behavior is simple interference with others freedom.

  356. Dear Kranti
    you can not put all indians in one category and say that they all are Rude.

    For your information, Jayanti Bhai, Swami Amit etc are all indians and they stay inside ashram. Are they also Rude???

    The issue here is not indians but the right to wear Osho Mala, or bow down to Marble podium or show one’s reverence towards the Beloved Master Osho.

    No one has the right to interfere in my spiritual freedom.

    At least, A Resort do not have the right to force rules on my spiritual inclination and freedom.

    As per the Resort punch line – “It is a meeting place for friends”… Then why they are interfering with the spiritual issues.

    love

  357. amrito says:

    the point is not about Indians, its about the claims of racism. The fact is, everyone is in someway racist.

    and although there is a different beauty within an environment in India and Indians, its more beautiful in a multi-cultural environment. Osho’s message is beyond nations and nationality per say.

    yet India still has a long way to go before fully realizing Osho than the way the rest of the world is absorbing him. The same way Buddha was absorbed and tranformed entire nations, Osho is emerging as a tranformational force.

    Sure in India people read his books and his magazines, but there is yet to be a full understanding of Osho’s vision. The conservative society of India will adopt Osho as a hindu avatar and accept him widely while ignoring his contentious views on sex and religious liberation.

    And in Russia, South America, the Middel East, Nepal..Osho is exploding and people are transforming fully accepting his message. The young are in the majority as well..

    hopefully India doesn’t miss Osho by adopting him into the Vedas..and not the destroyer of conditioned belief-systems!

    -Amrito

  358. amrito says:

    and India is also a huge place on its own..

    I want to seperate my views on Osho’s work in places like Punjab.

    Sikh’s are more accepting of Osho because they were previously breaking away from Hinduism and Islam into the Sikhism. The sameway Osho is breaking them away from the dust of Sikhism and reflaming its original rebelliosness..

    Hence alot of Punjabi sannyasins out there!

    -Amrito

  359. Shanti says:

    Brothers. We sannyasins stopped wearing the mala back in 1987. Osho asked us not to wear it except for meditation and the privacy of our room. When osho was alive 87-90 non of us wore mala. Nobody. If you do not believe me watch the videos of discourse of that time.
    Once in a while a new sannyasin who had taken sannyas somewhere else showed up with a mala. but it was so uncool to wear one at that time, that soon he would stop wearing it in public.
    After osho´s death people started wearing them again. And then sw. Arun came up with his own idea of sannyas… and Other indian sannyasn who had communes also started with the idea of wearing IT again.
    BUt as Far as osho was concerned it was over 1987.

  360. Swami Dhyan Anurag says:

    Kranti is trying very hard to please his British Masters and show that he is not an Indian but cultured and respectable like he want Osho to be
    in his previous statements about Osho book
    from Sex To Superconciousness.
    You look like a sissy trying hard to sound intelligent.

    And Kranti you have been reacting all these posts
    and also admitted that you are confused and reacting and now you say
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    But most of the people here are pointing it out the fact that Rajneesh also is very reactive and specifically in this forum he lost control in such a manner which is not believable…
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Rajneesh has shown his poise and cool in all his posts with sheer timing sometimes with humour and sometimes hammering and a genius challenging those baboons who have no clue on how to respond to his clarity and open defiance and challenge.

    I know that hundreds have read these posts and several have copied pasted and sent all over the sannyas world and all are laughing at the total Mockery Rajneesh has made of these Baboons.

    Rajneesh has made a Mockery
    and totally Shamed these Baboons into hiding.

    They have No Real Authority to face the challenge
    All of us who are reading are laughing at these retards who are pretending to manage Osho Vision.

    They cannot even mange to wipe their Ass in public and their shit is all over the place for public viewing.

    Osho asked people not to wear malas
    for a specific reason and short ime
    as the police were catching them and embassies were not giving Visas to foreigners.

    Osho ridiculed those who dropped the mala and said that those sannyasins who dropped the malas when asked were the ones who were insinciere egoists
    and were happy to drop the mala as they never wanted to wear one in the first place.

    And those who loved him went on wearing the mala.
    That those who still wore the mala when asked to drop it were really in love with him.

    Want these quote of Osho ??

  368. Shanti says:

    Anusrag apart from fanatic you are an ignorant. the quote you mention is from the time of the ranch, 1985. he spoke later already back in pune about sannyasin not wearing the mala in public, but only in their rooms and for meditation.
    But what am I asking you were never there. you just believe some stories other people told you.

    You insist in speaking about what you do not know or never experienced. Ay least have the gust to asmit you were never in those times. so you DO NOT KNOW!

    Regarding worldwide circulars from vatayana. IO already told you. but here it goes again.

    rajneesh did not only send a mail advertising the launching of his book. he sent by air mail an actual full color 21 pages brochure called “the new man” with pictures of himself, mainly, and his camps in Russia, to the Osho meditation centers listed in the Osho.com page.
    these meditation centers are meant for spreading the work of Osho, not anybody else ( as it was personally asked by osho) and have since they first started in the early seventies the mandate, from osho, to only spread HIS work, not the work of any other master. Including sannyasin satsang givers.
    This has been a loong standing guideline.
    Despite his former master´s wishes, rajneesh sent his material by air mail and asked to be invited to go to the centers. That is why the centers got the mail from Global connections.

    See howignorat you are. now answer…

    Anurag,
    I’m having a problem replying to you. I’d like to… I’m observing when a opinion is presented to you, rather than you hearing and accepting it as presented, especially when it’s something you disagree with you translate it and create a whole new scenario and make some ugly attack and given the choice, my preference is to speak peace… and for me it is a choice.

    If I were to share my thoughts and ideas, and you find them disagreeable, would you be willing or able to just be with that disagreement and not go into some push button reaction from your past calling me I’m this or that, or doing doing some unrelated this or that?

    I welcome and enjoy when the connecting happens but I’m unwilling to be a receptacle for being dumped on and called names or lumped in to some group that you blame for some perceived wrong.

    Is treating me fairly with consideration something you are willing to do? I can’t speak for others, but I’d prefer consideration and fairness.

    “Kranti is trying very hard to please his British Masters and show that he is not an Indian but cultured and respectable like he want Osho to be
    in his previous statements about Osho book”

    and than you say:

    “Alok John seems to be Amrito’s buddy
    both are British from what i can understand”..

    Anurag YOU are the one who seems to be the biggest racist and discriminator of them all!

    Re-read your prejudiced statements.

    Anyone who disagrees with you is a British slave? You are an idiot.

    I’m sure there’s more to the story about the Doc telling you off. You must’ve been walking with the Mala around your neck saying “you son’s of bitches I wear my mala and you cant do nothing—what you starin at whitey!”

    I agree with him for gettin ur ass out.

    If you are actually distancing yourself here from the

    and i will in all fairness exchange and share intelligently with you atleast here.

    I have raised many relevant questions sincierely
    and also Rajneesh has raised many points clearly and there is no answers but stupid reactions by people like Shanti and so i respond in kind to such.
    and i repeat clearly – I RESPOND in KIND.

    if you read carefully then you will also see that Rajneesh Responds and hits hard and sharp.

  372. Sannyasins may or may not be wearing Mala during the period 1987-90…

    But Osho never asked any body Not to wear mala inside the ashram.

    So, how come now sannyasins are being stopped from wearing mala inside the ashram

  373. Kranti says:

    ” If you are actually distancing yourself here from the
    Inner Circle then i can see your point”

    What an ugly condition..that too to Garimo who tried to be so polite

    Anurag Are yo deamanding that he has to distance himself from Inner circle to become eligble to be heard? and from you.

    And then this

    ” if you read carefully then you will also see that Rajneesh Responds and hits hard and sharp.”

    Everytime You talk for Rajneesh without fail..

    This has to be Rajneesh only.. Prem Bubbie is right

  374. amrito says:

    Wow what a great look at history in the making!

    Perhaps this is the way all fanatics were born—not directly from the root of the master, but from a secondary source.

    And fanatics they are…almost militant in a way.

    Now when I look back at Anurag’s sad sob story of the Doc picking on him, I see it in perspective.

    So Anu’s ego gets hurt and the first person to take advantage of that is Rajneesh. And the man starts feeding Anu all the anti-resort stuff of the world, and really makes him believe that he is the “truest” disciple of Osho.

    Even if Rajneesh speaks highly of Sw. Arun, even Sw Arun has declared the man a mentally unstable, delusional etc. Now he’s got one more person to call a “babboon”.

    But the Rajneesh Gang is literally that: a gang. No one has any maturity, and they just vomit vomit vomit.

    i do not like polite people and Garimo needs not be polite to me. These polite people are just cowards
    and hypocrites.Of course i mention Rajneesh again and again as the issues here are about Rajneesh
    and the Inner Circle and his challenge to them

    And Kranti could not get the Shanti date and now tries to go for Boobie at the halloween this year.
    So best of luck and enjoy those pumpkins with Boobie

  378. Shanti says:

    Anusrag…
    another straight question… and please this time answer it directly…
    Who gave you sannyas?

  379. Prem Abhay says:

    There is something very simple missing in the understanding of Amrito and others (including Anthony) who seek to justify Amrito’s approach in Pune – that is beyond what Anurag also pointed out: it is beyond his mandate to do so at the Pune space.

    What is missing is the simple fact that the Pune resort is in India. It is true that many Westerners fit more with the model in Pune rather than in Tapoban in Nepal. The thing to understand is that it makes little sense to travel from the West to find a Western place in India – especially if it is as or more expensive than in the West. It makes no sense to travel all the way to Koregaon Park in Pune, India, if the experience is totally ‘Western’. So aside from the technical issue, there is a simple practical issue. Of course it has been pointed out that many Westerners (old and new visitors) to do not feel comfortable with the concept being developed in Pune.

    Anurag….the law states that at a resort the drinking water must be free from contamination.

    Anand if you say Osho gave a zen-stick hit to Anurag then you are saying that his not only a Master, but a Master acting in that capacity in running the whole show. He was not given this authority. Build him a nice shack out the back of your place and tell him to come and make tea for all the weary travellers that pass by your gate. That much he can do. Other than this he is acting outside his authority has assigned by Osho. You can invite Jayesh, Yogendra, and Dhyanesh also. You say Rajneesh is pseudo. Who is being pseudo? If Swami Rajneesh is a fraudster then he is on his own authority.

  380. Shanti says:

    Abhay, so it is in India… so what?
    It is any way cheaper than any similar place in the west. Try the Zist centrum in germany, Omega institute, or the Esalen Isntitute en california and compare the prices.
    It is still, even after more than 20 years cheaper than the ranch.
    It is more expensive than Gandhi ashram or the resorts of Lonavla… but you are not going to compare…

    And the fact that it is India is an accident, If osho would have been given the residence we might be going to Uruguay for the “ashram”. And then, what ?we should be forced to dance salsa, because it is south america?. It is absurd abhay..

    So, anusrag… which swamiji gave you sannyas…come on share it with us.!

  381. Prem Abhay says:

    The mala argument is along the same lines as all the others that seek to justify the resort model. What comes out in the wash is that whatever Osho ‘sanctioned’ in the last few years before he left the body was not done so to the exclusion of past practices. It also needs to be acknowledged that there will always be temporal and practical reasons in the mix of why Osho did this or that. Also, some decisions taken – like the mala – actually have a clear practical origin for their being made. The same is with changing the robe color from orange to maroon, or changing his name from Bhagwan Rajneesh to Osho.

    For all the years up until the end of The Ranch Osho was totally into people wearing their mala. This even included the years in the Western country of the United States. Then for a few years the mala was made low key. To argue from this that forever afterwards the mala is not fitting with Osho’s new ‘Zen’ vision is narrow minded.

    A few people in the Inner-Circle liked some of the general approach that Osho took in his last years, and then have tried to enforce this as Osho’s finished product. What would have happened if Osho lived till he was 100? Imagine how many cycles of different dramas he would likely have taken his people through. What would it have been? The 70’s was devotion to the guru; the 80’s was the opulence and sex revolution era. What would have been the 90’s, and indeed the last decade? Of course it is not anyone’s role to predict this. The central role was given to the Inner-Circle, and it was simply to make the necessary practical decisions to ensure Osho’s legacy, and not just a part of the last few years of it, is protected and made available.

    As with all the other issues, there is another way to look at the mala problem. Osho left an Inner-Circle comprised of all types of disciples (mala lovers and otherwise), and the body was to work by consensus. Most of the original Inner-Circle members have left. Many have stated clearly that they have done so in protest. Others have left quietly. If these others left in quite protest this is also important. To have a base line to compare the current management decisions, it would be interesting to have the original members of the Inner-Circle explain whether they left in protest or not, and what their views are about the current management approach.

  382. Shanti says:

    This is what i call mixing up facts with theories. were you there abhay when osho asked us not to wear the mala anymore?
    I was.
    And who were in your terms the mala lovers? Neelam, vedant, Mukesh? None of these guys wear mala or has worn it since the 80´s.
    It is true that no one enforced not to wear the mala. But there was no need. the social pressure was so strong, that it was the equivalent of being in the seventies and not to surrender.
    Osho said no… and that was it. We agreed.
    When the maroon robes came osho was very clear about the robes being used only inside that ashram…not in other comunes or meditation centers.however people started wearing them,specially in India and nepal as the new robes.
    Even rajneesh wore them most of the times in the Himalayas.
    Have a look at the videos of pune 2 and see for yourself… if anyone is wearing mala.

  383. shantam prem says:

    Shanti has asked Anurag, who has given him sannyas and i am asking again and again persons who write so full of rebellious fire, atleast show their faces on facebook, the easiest source.

    Neither Harri Om did this nor Anurag is responding. Interestinggly enough, Meera Has a face book profile with a photo a woman in the white dress but no face.

    Seems like ,neo Jihadis to me. Big talk but faceless names as if Israel is on the other side.

  384. Prem Abhay says:

    Shanti the issue is of extremes. I am not saying you have to prostrate to a piece of marble or dance salsa. What I am saying is that if you can’t then there is a fundamental problem. This is what is happening in Pune. If Osho was entirely inconsistent with Indian culture and religion, then the resort model would make sense. It would be a blaring icon of truth in a land of dogma.

    We find that Osho was in many ways very Indian, even towards the end. One example of this is that he stayed in Pune. I am sure after the heat settled from The Ranch disaster he could have found some other country to live out his remaining days. Osho was an Indian who spent the majority of his time in India. Even if he was less Indian style in his spirituality in America and in Pune in his remaining few years, this does not reject his other approaches, his older sannyasins, and the path that this denotes to some new seekers. Also, even in America, and even in his last years in Pune, the thread of a more Indian approach to religiousness remained with Osho and his teachings – whether that be for example in his discourses or in him not disallowing the mala, or whatever.

    Shanti you give a few examples of pricing to make your case about price for services. I am sure I could find plenty more examples of pricing to make my case.

    Probably it would have been better if he had set up shop in Uruguay and we could all be really good at salsa by now.

    Shanti being there so to speak can have advantages, as you point out. It can also have disadvantages in the sense that you tend not to have a perspective of context and of other times. Simply saying that someone was not at The Ranch or at Pune2 Ashram does not automatically discount their views, especially if they are availed of facts. You also speak of social pressure as if it is a good thing. I disagree entirely with that line of reasoning.

    You do however make a good general point. The simple fact is that Osho ended up back in India for his last years. This means that all the argument about JA&Gang’s concept of ‘Western Zen’ can be countered. Why, because the flavour of Indian spirituality would still have been there in Pune2 Ashram. I do not have to be there to know that. Also, I have read a few accounts of people from that time that already reinforce this view. Also if you try to counter this by saying this flavour was a seeping in of ignorance, than you will have to say the same is the case for the majority of Osho’s years as a mystic. This would discredit Osho entirely and therefore you would have taken away the importance of Osho and the value therefore of any of your arguments. Osho and his vision and legacy would be reduced to a cheap sham.

    If you want to argue your case you are going to have to do a lot better than your current position: I was there in these are the facts. There were other people that were there so to speak, there are other facts, and there are some people around today that will not buy your argument – which is incidentally the same argument put forward by JA&Gang.

  385. Chinmaya says:

    Oh dear Shanti,

    You have written Osho is dead, than, why you are bothering for a dead person.

    Use proper language for my Master – Osho. Osho is not a body, which is dead, otherwise, so much work on enlightenment/ awareness/ awakening would not have happened. He is the ONLY enlightened Master, after Budhha, who could speak maximum words in the world, as per Guineses Book of World Records, and within a span of 16/17 years virtually, after his body age of 42/43 till He left His body, Willingly He left His body. If He wished, He could live with His body, He was the Master of Masters in Tantra, but He lived, till the Existence wanted Him to stay back. When, His work for the world is done through, He decided to leave the body.
    He has contributed a lot, perhaps, more than Lord Budhha even. Only Prayer word was happening earlier through different channels of our holy places. The spread of Meditation word and techniques, has happened through Him only, with 112 techniques. Earlier, there were only 3 or 4 techniques, and the people of various Mathh (Hindi word), say, Ashram, were not willing to teach to the people, perhaps, out of their possessivess or ego. This is only OSHO, who accepted as His lover/ beloved/ Sanyasin/ friend/ fellow passenger, for sanyasin. He said, who will care, if Osho ashram does not honored to the thirsty people. Now, the situation is different but because of the control of managing the affairs of Ashram, it does not mean, you can use the word OSHO is dead. Please mind your language, at least for an elderly person, from your age. If you are linked with Indian culture, it does not allow to use such language. In Hindi, we use for our elders, POORE HO GAYEI, MERE PITTA JI…….OR CHALANA KAR GAYEI……….OR CHAL BASSEI

    With my love for you……

  386. Anand says:

    In a way it would have been beautiful to have kept the Osho Zen approach and the devotional approach inside the ashram/ resort. East and West side by side – it always has been very complimentary and without the Indians and their loving approach and understanding about masters and disciples, the place is not the same anymore. And Jayesh and Amrito are not evolved enough to run a high energy pure Zen Resort as well.
    This way we are stuck with ‘Neither This, Nor That’. And maybe that is good so, so we can all spread our wings and spread our Osho energy all over this planet. Each in their own individual ways.
    We can see in those last weeks on this forum, how different all of our understandings of Osho are. I feel blessed that I have spent those precious years in his presence, where Osho’s energy was just poured into his disciples
    present with him. Only now -reflecting- the process becomes clear, how blessed those of us has been.
    And reading those commentaries on sannyas news, it becomes also clear, what all is missing from those commentaries here. What is missing is that deep inside communion and message delivered from Osho -one to one- to his disciples. I feel through my meetings with new sannaysins, that this is still happening today. So in that sense Osho is not dead, never died and never will die. But for those not connected with his presence, it is just impossible to grasp this basic fact through their minds and trying to get an understanding of Osho through the mind, is just not possible.
    So the minds freak out and go on rambling on these pages forever and ever and ever…….ratatati and ratatata and so on.
    As long as there are sannyasins alive, who have been in close proximity with Osho during his lifetime I will prefer those to be the wise Elders to all of those,
    who are just now entering the field and discussing details like Mala Yes/No,
    Aids Test yes/No etc.
    Jayesh might live for another 20 or so years and even Amrito’s immune system might be strong – so let’s face it, there is no change in sight.
    I agree it is a dictator ship of one, but all we have to do is ‘be a light unto ourselves’ and enjoy the mysteries of life and death on this planet, daily one step at the time with as much love and awareness we are able to.
    I doubt that Jayesh/ Amrito are spending much time worrying about the gigantic mind games played on sannyas news.

  387. Kranti says:

    Thanks Anand.. A post which is rooted in reality and acceptance of what is..

  388. Kranti says:

    You are right Abhay..If Osho had been alive sure so much would have changed interms of methods and approach..not the core of his teaching..which can not change not only for Osho.. even for any master.. the core teaching of Jesus to Buddha to Osho is going to be the same..Thats precisely the point..we can not stick to symbols..

    Thinking about it , Osho would have deviced some internet based meditation where everyone can login at a given time and listen to his guided meditation.. It is happening with these modern day teachers also.. Some sort of online satsangs / radio podcasts./ SKYPE meetings..

    Shantam was talking about Osho resort planning to telecast live the evening meeting or something like that..Not sure whether there were some real plans or just suggestions..

  389. Kranti says:

    Garimo… the box of rocks is a good one..

    One for you from the famous Sardarji jokes from India..

    ” A sardar was given the job of painting the white lines down the middle of a highway. On his first day he painted six miles; the next day three miles; the following day less than a mile. Then the foreman asked the sardar why he kept painting less each day, he replied “I just can’t do any better. Each day I keep getting farther away from the paint can.”

  390. Kranti says:

    What a timing.. Todays no thought for the day

    ” Forget all about figuring it out what it is. Rather, live it; rather, enjoy it!

    Don’t analyze, celebrate it. “

  391. Satya Deva says:

    Can’t help feeling that all the above only amounts to mere “sound and fury, signifying nothing”…

    Osho, if he’s anywhere, is in whoever loves him, wherever they may be, whether alone or with fellow travellers. Which I reckon must number in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions…

    And whether any ‘ultimate flowering’ of his teaching is ever going to happen, or not, doesn’t depend upon how the Poona ashram is run, or whatever ‘clones’ like Rajneesh might say, or what Arun gets up to, or whether malas are allowed to be worn or not (what an absurdity that ‘red herring’ is!), it’s surely more about whether individuals are up to taking responsibility for their lives and, for a start, rooting out whatever prevents their inner happiness and well-being.

    As Buddha said, “Be a Light unto yourself”….

    Then, perhaps, true communal “celebration’ might have a chance of beginning…

    On the larger scale, who knows how long this might take to get off the ground? Generations, it looks like…

    But for now, nothing much else truly matters than individual self-enquiry, ‘cos there’s a LONG way to go…Just read this entire thread , if you doubt that!

  392. Satya Deva says:

    Should have said “most of the above thread amounts to mere sound and fury”, not all of it.

  393. shantam prem says:

    Anand,
    You have written a nice comment, worthy of appreciation.
    I want to comment on the last paragraph-

    “I doubt that Jayesh/ Amrito are spending much time worrying about the gigantic mind games played on sannyas news.”

    May be that is the difference between Spirit of Osho and his caretakers.

    Even when Osho stoped reading newspapers and books, his secretaries were keeping him upto date about the world events and moreover what is happening inside the commune, all the moods and thoughts were conveyed, though it is very much possible that secretaries were bringing their interptations too.

    I can say without doubt that Osho has the fingers on the pulse. J&A also have the fingers on the pulse, but it is their own pulse or the pulse of their YES SIR people.

    Why dictators should read the comments of the masses, they are answerable only to some unseen higher force.

    It is also very clear, that on a programming level at their resort things will remain as they are, complete approach will remain missing. You will get only the Tofu but paneer will be shrinked out, what to say about Butter Chicken!

    Does it mean, the first generation sannyasins who feel something is wrong, remain silent in the name of meditation.
    Yes, if they think it will enhance their inner peace and meditation.
    For someone like me it can be another way. My voice says, if i am not speaking about my own ashram, i have no right to blame the other priests and politicians for the big shit.
    My inner sannyas says, ” If i cannot raise the finger of protest, how dumb it is to listen Osho, the one of its kind, non conformist Master!

  394. shantam prem says:

    Shantam was talking about Osho resort planning to telecast live the evening meeting or something like that..Not sure whether there were some real plans or just suggestions..

    I was talking about this, when resort was not born. There were scratches in the inner circle but it had not fallen flat on the floor. Till a certain team, every idea was conveyed before the gathering at white robe or 45 minutes after the discourse, if the agenda was time consuming. Breaking news were done with style in a cheerful way.
    Telecast of white robe live via Internet was there, when we were His people, spread all over the world. It was a bonding gesture. Now His people are almost like audience in the multiplex.
    No emotional bonding is needed. Enjoy comfy seats, clean toilets, packet of popcorn but bring your girl friend with and take her back home after the show. Otherwise it can create law and order situation.
    Once there was a time only very courageous used to come as a couple as i have seen, ashram energy will put the relation is such alchemical fire, that new equations were born out of the old theorem.
    For convenience sake, i can say, 1987-1990 was Poona 2 phase. it continued with the same spirit till 1999. Afterwards it is a totally new chapter, one can not say, is this a trailer of some movie or it is a same movie before the interval.The way audience are whistling, looks like, operator is not in the normal state, and audience would have enjoyed if it was some MASALA mistake.

    Yes Satya Deva…

    It seems to me that inner state is more a kind of frequency tuning which we need to do.. seems as long as we are in touch with outer noise, the inner will be noisy only.. Today i wasnt feeling connceted then started listening to some Prem Joshua music and the inner climate changed.. Somthing deep in me relaxed and i felt it depends on the choice we make.. Something like what Garimo wrote few posts earlier.. that his choice is peace.. This sharing also is beautiful in its own way But i want balance it out by tuning into silence also..rather than worried all the time what is going on in Pune whichhas its own place..

    Hey Kranti,

    >Something like what Garimo wrote few posts earlier.. that his choice is peace..

    To be honest I’ve been greatly influenced in the last 4-5 yrs. by the life work of Marshal Rosenberg. I’ve taken a bunch of classes in NVC and participated in a nine month integration program. It’s mostly just learning a new language, doesn’t change or offer any belief systems, only creates newer ways to connect with and communicate what is already there. I find it useful at times in my day to day living with other people.

    Anurag,

    It is my opinion that people who take any stand for any social cause through their actions and words, must bring their face too before the people, irrespective of the fact, face is photogenic or not.
    So create a profile at facebook, let people send flowers or rotten eggs, so what!
    and if you click few photos at some Brazilian beach, please share the photos. My e mail address is at my website.

  408. Shanti says:

    Anusrag you say
    “I got my Sannyas from Swami Arun”…
    No wonder may dear… that is a version of sannyas that probably not even Osho would have agreed upon.

    Many prominent Indian sannyasins started their own gurudom When Osho went to the states. Among the notable ones were Maitreya in the Pune ashram and Swami yoga Chinmaya in the Himalayas.
    Shyam Singha was in the same trip in Europe.
    Suddenly we had all these swamijies who were “interpreting” or ” helping you to underestand” Osho´s vision, now that he was in silence, initiating disciples and overall being a guru on Osho´s behalf.
    Sw. arun is from that generation and trip. If you read what he says you will see that it is HIS OWN understanding, and if you were with Osho for long enough many things said by Arun sound awkward and coming from somewhere else than Osho understanding of sannyas and other matters.

  409. shantam prem says:

    Shanti dear,

    We have discussed the problems enough from all sides..

    What you think are the solutions, something like common minimum programme in a coalision govt?

  410. Shanti says:

    Solutions, Shantamy darling?
    Let everyone go to where his/ her heart thrills.

    I would not thrill in Tapoban… I am too old a sannyasin to grove at that revival style… but who knows. some one like Amrito may feel at home. It is Ok with me.

    That is my pledge.

    However. rajneesh story is different. then i feel ashamed as a sannyasin. I hope someone compassionate enough get him into some psychiatric facility before more people are deceived,

  411. amrito says:

    And…people need to “drop” the “who’d you get sannyas from” = Osho _____ abc school of thought..

    I can agree that many, including myself, have from time to time taken the interpretations of sannyas givers over even what Osho has said—but with time, this maturity will come to every genuine seeker.

    I’m completely OK as well with differing opinions on different people like Sw.Arun, the Doc etc., because I have no vested interest in any one in particular.

    I do however genuinely feel that Osho is absolutely awesome. And sometimes my hands tremble, and my hairs straiten when I realize what type of man actually existed just some 25 years back…

    What a man, what a story…what a contribution. Such revolution, rebelliousness, courage and sense of humour. What a movement, what a show…

    I think directors have a hard time with Osho’s life because its soo well documented, and no one can replace Osho in a film because Osho himself was the greatest actor, director, screenwriter…

    Its very easy to be mesmerized by the man in every dimension from physical look to intellectual thought to spiritual presence.

    And…with all this happening, I naturally want to share who the man is! Its like having watched a great film, and you can’t help but telling everyone you meet about it! Even if you know that you can enjoy the film for yourself and its not about others, the force just carries you to share…expand…

    But the hard part with Osho is bridging him. It seems like people are ready to judge him on first look because of the saturation of indian gurus. It seems like I can’t introduce him right because I feel like a Jehovas Witness or something. It seems like when I describe him I’m describing the “only begotten son of God”…and I know that I’m ruining and completely distoring what he REALLY IS…

    That’s the difficulty..

    And I know Sw. Arun genuinely is spreading Osho, but apart from his own interpretations, he had to bridge Osho to Nepal in a completely different way. But many people have been connected and have fell deeply in love with Osho through their own understanding.

    And many of those people may not agree with Sw. Arun on everything, but they do hold a great amount of respect for the man for introducing them to the MAN. And in eastern culture, gratitude literally falls to your feet…

    And I’m sure, the Resort has the same difficulty expanding Osho globally. Its a very very difficult task…because Osho is very difficult to introduce as a person: he was many persons! And…very difficult to introduce as an Idea…there were too many…and as a face—too many lookalikes. And I have a feeling they made the rule about not having Osho’s picture without a hat and black beard because of islamic terrorists (there’s been more than one person who’s told me he looks like Bin Laden in his older pics).

    So…its complicated.

    But Osho never said he would be easy.

    Love,
    Amrito

  412. amrito says:

    and to note…

    People may try to drop parallel lines between Rajneesh and Sw. Arun because Anurag has shared he took sannyas from Sw. Arun.

    There is a completely different dimension with Sw. Arun which is the fact that he has been doing what he’s doing now since the early 70s. Running a meditation center, conducting camps etc has always been his little thing with Osho.

    And he has never criticized Osho or disrespected Osho above himself the way Rajneesh does about Osho’s roll royces. He was in Rajneeshpuram, he arranged a safe place for Osho during turbulent world times in Kathmandu, Nepal.

    And although people literally are makin Sw. Arun their master, I’ve spoken personally with him and he hates it! He keeps saying he aint no guru, but its a difficult environment to work with where every wants a guru! People themselves don’t help Sw. Arun out by calling him enlightened—when he repeatedly denies it!

    >>And…people need to “drop” the “who’d you get sannyas from” = Osho _____ abc school of thought..

    Hey Amrito,
    I’m not so sure that asking and learning who/what is one anothers influence is a wrong thing needing to be suppressed. Learning the source of anothers influence could be useful in leading to having shared understandings. So…
    I’m wonder if what you might be wanting is to not have the judgments that get placed once the question has been answered?

    For me, having a observation and understanding of the reality of a situation is the step before the mind interprets and places the meanings that this is good and that isn’t. I’m thinking not taking that second mental step is what might need considering.

  414. Prem Abhay says:

    Shanti in your posts you have revealed a religious extremist mind-set. It is interesting to know that you were at The Ranch, still believe that it was great, and also support the repeat of it by JA&Gang. Thanks for the insight.

    Anand, go and sit at the feet of Sheela. Surely she has absorbed enough of Osho’s energy to share with you. You are playing the mind game by trying to silence the truth coming out – playing the same superiority trip as Shanti. The so called gigantic mind games being played out here are narrowing in on the root problems surrounding the Osho movement. Though you may dismiss them, (unfortunately) Amrito, Jayesh, and others are not so ignorant.

    Yes Kranti there is a use of the internet for connecting. The interesting thing is the real-time live connection with a teacher/master. My sense is that this is what is most valuable. This is also why it will not be so enthusiastically received if live transmission of a recording is simultaneously viewed or received – a waste of time really. This points to the value of a living Master.

    I read about Rani’s experience as someone suggested here. One thing that may get missed is that in her darkest hour there was just too much vastness to Osho’s message for her to find a support. When Osho spoke he did so to respond to a current issue. Maybe it was to a whole discourse group, maybe just to one individual, and maybe sometimes to this whole crazy humanity. What this means is that when now we read this message it is either luck or deep intuition that insures that this message is most suitable for our current needs and issues. For example if Osho was in the body, maybe through live internet transmission, he could have answered a specific question from Rani. It is not that Osho is too vast, it is just the nature of the practical world we live in.

    This points to one other practical side issue. A lot of his time was focused an absorbing literature and taking care of the spiritual needs of his people. This leaves little time for practical managerial issues. This may be another reason for Osho giving people in power a free rein.

    Of course many close disciples were eyeing off the top job when Osho grew frail. He played the biggest joke on them all and left no successor. What this means is that what he left behind cannot be made a religion out of. Of course people will try and take over and play guru, but in the end his instructions were clear. Osho left it like Kranti’s paint can on the road joke spells out. He left it that what he created will slow down and really is nothing special. People in the Inner-Circle and others with similar ambition became busy trying to further Osho’s amazing trajectory. In the end they will fail. This is in part because they are fools, and in part because Osho gave them an inherent restriction.

    The value of what he left behind is still beautiful: the Pune ashram (to some extent), and his art, and his words. The words will still inspire so many, yet with him gone, they will always have difficulty hitting the mark (just like with Rani). It is really in the people that he has drawn to higher levels of existence that will shape the trajectory of his sacred jewel. They may be enlightened or they may just be frauds. I suggest if a person is serious about the path that they make efforts to find out. This also includes questioning the (dangerous) view of Jayesh’s about not needing any support other than a Master who has left the body. This is his way of transferring spiritual authority to himself. People argue that he and Amrito are being selfless and hidden. If you get deeper into the movement you will find that they are viewed as the religious authorities, and that they encourage this to happen. It is a subtle deception by the crafty and cunning.

    When I was thinking of an example of making a observation and taking that next mental step of burying it in meanings that hadn’t been in evidence, I thought of Prem Abhay and how he presents his commentary.

  416. prem bubbie says:

    Yes Abhay, the Ranch was great. Simply because 99% of us were either completely naive, totally trusting Osho in picking Sheela to run things or just self-absorbed. We all went there for our own personal trips, whether to actually live as in the moment as possible and maybe “discover “our true self in the process or, like some sannyasins whose personal trips included get laid as often as possible, or some selfish power trip. We created and lived our own reality. This was a trip in self discovery. Too bad so many couldn’t let go of their shit and see and live that.. Abhay, please let go of your obsession, see the light. There was no comparing the Ranch to anything on the “outside” world. What a blast!!!!! Shanti, I know you were there, but as I remember it the disco the one located at the mall in 1983 and closed a little after 11pm ,it was the only disco at the time, nice cozy place, it always packed, I went there for 3 months straight every night after working from 6am to 8pm in 1983-1984. Do you remember the crazy schedule to build those town houses before the government ban went into effect? – there was the last song then gachamis. The last buses departed at around 11:30 pm if my memory is correct. i missed it a few times and ended up walking a mile or so in the pitch black of night– thousands of stars so visible in the clear clean air WOW! I still get goose bumps!!! I’d like to share some stories with you. love bubbs

    Abhay, not sure what you man. I already did my years with Sheela, Pune 1 and 2 and another 20 years. What do you think you have to offer now?

    But I am thinking of learning sonmething like this more for the joy of it.. Is that something NLP?

  421. Kranti says:

    Amrito

    It was an AWESOME post.. Wish i said those words about Osho

    Samething ahs been happening to me for the last 15 years or so.. You just cant help but marvel at the depth of the Man.. All the those power , twists , turns , hitting the target , sense of humour it seems one life time is not enough to understand Him

    I was listening to a youtube video about his Library of 150000 books.. But I am more in love with his DELIVERY and PRESENCE…

    I have been longing to connect to Osho in more deeper ways . Thanks for such a wonderful sharing

  422. Kranti says:

    Just for my own enjoyment.. copy pasting..

    ” I do however genuinely feel that Osho is absolutely awesome. And sometimes my hands tremble, and my hairs straiten when I realize what type of man actually existed just some 25 years back…

  423. Kranti says:

    About Sw Arun..

    Whatever he is doing one can feel the Love he has for Osho.. I listened to his few videos as I have not met him.. I respect him for the love he has for HIm..

    The way he describes his first meeting with Osho he almost became a child giggling and feeling so happy and re living that morning when he went literally barged into Osho room without permission.. Sitting next to Osho and looking at him that close .. It must have been enough for 100 lives ..

  424. Kranti says:

    Abhay

    I talked about that Internet thing as just a point that Osho would have used technology witout hesitation..It can never be replacement for sitting next to Him..

    We have discussed enough of this J&A stuff.. In your post you mentioned

    ” People argue that he and Amrito are being selfless and hidden.”

    Thats what I feel.. The level of understanding they have about Osho is very highly concious.. You can not question their understanding.. what you can suggest is asking for few things which are needed for people who are newer and who need little more heart orieneted ways to connect to Osho

    As Shanti pointed out the solution seems to be ” Let everyone go to where his/ her heart thrills “

  425. Prem Abhay says:

    What did the former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic do when he finished his attempt at genocide of the Bosnian Muslims and Croats? The answer is of course obvious isn’t it. He became a therapist and meditation teacher.

    What does a therapist or meditation teacher do after they have reached enlightenment and finished meditating? The answer is of course obvious isn’t it.

    The extent to which a person whose interest is power can go off the rails depends on how much power they have. The head of a family is capable of killing a family. The head of a nation is capable of killing millions.

    Sheela had a lot of power. JA&Gang have a lot of power. They have of course stolen it. This in a sense is worse than Sheela. Osho gave Sheela the top managerial job, with him still retaining his spiritual authority – see how he took the power back of Sheela and the way she reacted (not wanting him to speak). Sheela and her gang were convicted of mass poisoning and conspiring to murder a number of people. JA&Gang were given the top managerial job, and have taken over the spiritual job as well. They have a lot of power, and much of it is stolen. This shows that there will to power is perverse and intense.

    Osho never left anyone his vision. What he left behind was his legacy, or his ‘ashes’. This was Osho’s last and greatest Zen joke. It is so funny that the pseudo Zen masters from JA&Gang have yet to get the Zen joke.

    Can you imagine how pathetic it would be to have JA&Gang up on stage at the front of the blessed auditorium? Can you imagine the outpouring of Zen wisdom? I think the crowd would finally have get the tremendous joke and laugh so much they will bring the roof crashing down (literally of course).

    Here’s a thought/question:

    How many of those people who are dead keen on reviving regular mass celebrations at the Poona ashram would be quite as keen if the ‘prospect of sex’ was absent?!

    I ask because I recall someone’s comment earlier in this thread, something like: ‘…finding Mr or Miss Right somewhere in the crowd….’

    I do wonder about some people’s apparent ‘attachment’ to, obsession with even, these events…Is it akin to some sort of drug perhaps – you know, ‘losing your identity’ in a large crowd, getting laid later (hopefully!)…?!

    Yes, I know it’s uplifting, joyful and so on…

    But where would sannyas be without sex, lots of it, and “always” available (one hopes and prays)?!!

    PS: Not blaming anyone at all, far from it…

    But can we be honest perhaps, please?!

  429. Kranti says:

    I dont think they have any power and all.. It is only in the imagination of people who are looking at them.. At the most they have administrative power over a meditation center / few buildings / some rules & regulations for runnning the place.. Nothing else.. If they had the kind of power lot of issues which happened over the last 10 years would not have happened..

    As Anthony said they just tried extending few practical things according to the current time. They were able to do few things and not able to do few others.. Wherever they couldnt succeed people moved away and created new centers with things they want..

    After sometime there will be banning in Sw Arun , Neelam and Keerthi’s place also..Not beacsue those people are bad and they like banning..No..the very fact that they want to run the meditation center in a certain heart oriented manner means there will be few rules and regulations ..someone is going to break it ..It is part of running the organization

    Except for few differences of opinions on the manner in which those practical things that need to be run which will be there in any organization in any part of the world and in any culture and in any stage of life irrespective of who is managing …

    Infact most of the people including Rajneesh project as though they would have done marvellous things given the control and they can control the future etc etc..Such an approach is political not spirutual .. Every politician promises such things to the masses..

    A really spiritual person understands the uncertainities of life and does not gauarantee you anything.. Osho never did .. He didnt give you a promise that he will be consistent in His talks..leave alone a consistent vision.

    All this talk of two people having excessive power etc etc is the mind game people play .. They want to create such a ‘ Illusiory power ‘ inside their imagination so that it gives them a powerful & adequte enemy to fight against and creat big fuss ” ..Such a enemy doesnt exist in reality.. It is just mental crap.. Highly exagerrated.

    You can again say it is not a question of pracatical / mundane issues..and it is a question of Osho vision..That they are tinkering with the Vision etc.. You can make an attempt to define what you meant by power..that will again touch the aspects of Vision..And that vision thing is very vague and dicey stuff.

    WE HAD DISCUSSED / ARGUED / DEBATED ENOUGH and I am NOT getting to those again …

    As Amrito said here You really need so many ways of respresenting Osho..and we have this multidimensonal respresentation unfolding now ..

    Now people have beautiful choices infront of them .. Based on what approach one wants people can go to pune or Sw Arun or Rajneesh ( Even Rajneesh )… Individual freedom is still there

  430. Kranti says:

    Satya ..you opened up a great point .. Let us see what kind of discussion we have around this

    ” Especially, I might add, for all you hitherto sexually-repressed Indians”

    I was abou to say this..But you said that in the next post..

    To be honest that is a real possibility..Lots of local frustration can because of the denial of that ..

    Someone even suggested they publish all these Swimming pool pictures in the magazine and tempt people to come there for that .. Even there the blame is being shifted to the management..It is a meanigless arguement

    But just one small point though .. there is a small minority just asking for Osho birthday celebrations & Bhajans as a way of relating to Osho. That small minority may not have ideas for mass gathering as ways to have lots of Sex.. Hopefully

  431. Kranti says:

    P.S. I am not again being mean to others.. As Osho sannyasins we all have healthy approach towards Sex and I am not trying to be holier than thou here .. Just posting this as a point for discussion more than anything else ..

  432. Prem Abhay says:

    Kranti and Anthony hold the argument that JA&Gang are just keeping few practical things the same, or maybe changing them a little as the times change. It seems, from their position, this is referred to as extension.

    What is removing pictures, banning sannyasins that have a different view, demolishing the pagoda, halting annual Osho celebrations, and removing devotional practices have to do with keeping just few practical things the same. Are you not aware that Amrito and Jayesh have clearly stated reasons for their changes in spiritual and not practical terms. True it is that Amrito said that demolishing the pagoda was a practical necessity. The truth of this matter is that he is anyhow here lying: the local council put a stop to his destructive efforts. So even on practical matters we have lies. On other matters we have clear explanation from Jayesh and Amrito (and I am sure others) in terms of spiritual rather than practical reasoning. From the above I find that Kranti and Anthony have lost the plot.

    Yes Kranti power games are just mind games. What you fail to understand is that the game can involve many minds, and also a mind can send a signal to the body to do all kinds of marvellous things – from making love to making war.

    Kranti the extension of the issues in Pune to Keerti or Neelam or anyone else that has set up their own place is not applicable. The central issue is of Osho’s legacy: this includes the Pune place. It was not given to Jayesh and Amrito to do what they like. This is the point and why your line of reasoning is incorrect and misleading.

    You say….Except for few differences of opinions

    removing pictures – Stopping Worshipping

    banning sannyasins – case to case analysis required. Can not be genralized.. I know people who was stealing abd then got banned

    demolishing the pagoda – Check with Oshobob..there was no pagoda in the first place..New Auditorium built. Old taken out..

    halting annual Osho celebrations & removing devotional practices

    With due respect to you these are the only two points worth discussing and thats where the differences of opinion regarding approach /comes into play.. We couldnt arrive at a consensus and athst why we have so many centers now..

    I also tottaly agree with you that Pune is special.. I didnt mean other centers can be a direct replacement ..If that is not the case we will not be discussing

    But the specialness of of pune is only for old timers and may be current sannyasins..It will not be the same for coming generations.. If you atr to make it special then we have a holy place..wherever there is a holy place there will be a religion

    We go on forcing children to go to sleep when we think it is time. But sleep is not to be manipulated by time, sleep is something inner. When the child feels sleepy he will go to sleep, but mother and father go on forcing the child to go to sleep, as if sleep can be ordered. Children must think that you are foolish, they think that something has gone wrong in your mind. How can a child force sleep? He can pretend, so when you are there he can close the eyes and when you have gone he can open the eyes, because sleep cannot be forced. Nobody, not even you, can force sleep. If you don’t feel sleepy how can you go to sleep?

    and how much exposure you have with the Indian chidlren of the above middle class level( Approx. half billion people).

    If by chance, you visit Pune next time, make a study tour of all the restaurants, bars and discos just in the Koregaon Park area.

    Infact Pune itself is implementing that ‘ Advice ‘ to all Indians when they enter the resort..

    Thats why i said when people say swimming pool photos attract people it is a meaningless statement as India is getting past that stage where similar attractions are available elsewhere.

  439. oshobob says:

    That’s right Kranti, there was no destruction of any Osho pagoda, because there never was an Osho pagoda, as far I know. You can’t destroy something that never existed. I’ve mentioned this twice before here at sannyasnews, but it seems to have gone unheaded, at least by some.

    There was an Osho samadhi, but that got changed into Chuang Tzu Meditation Hall, or something like that, where meditations are held. It’s also possible there were never any of Osho ashes in that urn that was placed beneath his marble bed in the first place. There’s no verifiable evidence of that fact, except for a few peoples statements propagating the idea.

    Swami Arun, as I have said before here, says he has an Osho samadhi at his Tapoban center, so maybe he has the ashes. Go ask him.

    Or maybe they are at another location, undisclosed to anyone but a few “insiders.”

    No one really knows, except the designers of the drama…

  440. Kranti says:

    If there is no ahes & samadhi there and it is going to be just a meditation hall then there is no need for lot of hue and cry.. It will be interesting twist to the issues. People like Rajneesh are targetting mainly the samadhi.

    Shanti, thanks for that explanation on the new use of the word “pagoda.” Finally someone has explaining this ongoing mystery to me. Ok, so there was a ‘pagoda’ and the pagoda was dismantled…a word that was usually reserved for the structure that contained the ashes and other relics of a Buddhist master now has a new meaning, ok, so far, so good…

    Then, continuing on with that type of linguistic stretching, we can say that Osho’s ‘samadhi’ is that round room with the big chandelier and marble bed — whether or not it is called Chuang Tzu Meditation Hall by the Resort authorities, and cathartic Osho meditations like Gibberish/No-Mind are held there, and whether there is, or is not, any ashes of Osho in that urn that was put in the bed crypt on January 19, 1990. Is that right? Still you could say it’s Osho’s samadhi? And initiate a lawsuit to allow anyone to visit it — am I getting this right….?

  443. Kranti says:

    Infact ‘ pagoda ‘ seems to be even more complex thing as per wikipedia.. It had to be ‘ a tiered tower with multiple eaves’ or ‘ stupa ‘ or ‘ a tomb-like structure where sacred relics could be kept safe and venerated “..

    Did we have something close to this ?

  444. Kranti says:

    If not , then all we had was a meditation hall for which new auditorioum as an alternative has come up…Think i read somewhere that osho desired a more sophiticated meditation hall.. for someone with that kind of intelligence he would have desired / thought about a new one for Dynamic meditation..

  445. Anand says:

    Each Moment is Perfect!
    Each moment in this universe is perfect. There has never been a not perfect moment in this universe.
    Once you understand this, specially Abhay and Rajneesh all your stuff will fly away. Although it is also perfect. Amrito and Jayesh running Osho resort is also perfect, the bannings are also all perfect and whatever you do now to change things is also perfect.
    Osho choose Jayesh, Amrito and the Inner Circle because that was perfect in that moment to do and he trusted the universe that it continues to provide a perfect moment every moment in the future.
    So be it and let it be.
    Abhays anger about being banned is also perfect. Rajneesh’s ambition to be recognized as some sort of spiritual leader is also perfect and part of human nature.
    Sometimes it would be good if we all understand this basic and simple piece of Eastern wisdom.

  446. Kranti says:

    Think that ‘ Chuang Tzu Meditation Hall ‘ was actually desinged by Osho himself as his bedroom ..Thats what my understanding is..

    In that context Oshobob when you said in the previous post as ‘ beneath his marble bed ‘ did you mean it was a bed used by him?

  447. Shanti says:

    I Understand it. that is why i think it is perfect that I fight against rajneesh,… love shantam, kranti, enjoy Oshobob and frank, respect canadian amrito, Like prem bubbie and anand, and despise anurag and amitabh and specially the psycho of meera.
    thank you Anand fellow traveller. I like this beautiful charade… and all these brothers and sisters.

    Oshobob I have no reason to doubt that osho´s ashes are there… but what does it matter? He is in my heart. where his ashes are is the most irrelevant thing in the world: I am a sannyasin, a seeker of truth, nit a religious fanatic worried about where to go cry the loss of the man who set me free. His life was devoted to our freedom… even from Him. So, where is Osho? He is here in me in what he awoke in my heart and being. Ashes? pagodas? pictures. come on. that is for children!
    Osho is the name given to an unspoken space inside myself. beyond mind, emotions.
    that is Osho. the actual man lived in that space, triggered that space in me. I am thankful for that, but I am not going to have it as walking stick… I am free. .. and grateful.

  448. Kranti says:

    ” Each Moment is Perfect! ”

    Ananad ..Just as an extension of this ..What Advaita says is ..

    the reason why it is said as ” Each Moment is Perfect! ” is because there is no one to choose or do otherwise .. there is ‘ no person ‘ behind any of the actions.. Whatever is supposed to happen in a moment due to the collective conditioning is what all that is suppoed to happen..and it can not be otherwise
    Just life operating through a set of body-mind organisms

    OOps!!!

    But this is just a mental / conceptual understanding me ..( ‘Me’ is used as there is no other way )

  449. Kranti says:

    Wow.. What a post Shanti.. This real sharing

    ” His life was devoted to our freedom… even from Him”

    He even said His own leaving the body is supposed to give the taste of great freedom for all disciples..Didnt he?

  450. alok john says:

    Kranti wrote :

    ” People argue that he and Amrito are being selfless and hidden.”

    Thats what I feel.. The level of understanding they have about Osho is very highly concious.. You can not question their understanding.. what you can suggest is asking for few things which are needed for people who are newer and who need little more heart orieneted ways to connect to Osho”

    I agree with Kranti (as usual.) You have got to think of the future, 20, 50 , 100 years hence. Osho was not like anyone in the past. Sometimes he talks as if he is enlightened like say Buddha, and at other times he says the enlightenment game is nonsense. As young Amrito says, He was quite awesome. The important thing is that he should be available for newcomers.

    I think, on the whole, people who complain about Dr Amrito and Jayesh do not understand Osho deeply enough.

    Re : Ashes

    Osho was burnt publicly. I was there that night (My fifteen minutes of fame) and of course lots of ashes of wood and bone were left there in the morning. Some were taken for the Pune Samadhi and I presume someone took some that later ended up in Tapoban. Maybe I should have taken some!

    I have a photo of the ghat where He was burnt which I will put up on the web one day

  451. Kranti says:

    “I think, on the whole, people who complain about Dr Amrito and Jayesh do not understand Osho deeply enough ”

    thats the a key understanding. They are making Osho timeless, suitable for all ages rather than adjusting to current requirements alone..they are trying hard not to fit Osho into a category / time frame.

    Time will make us understand..

  452. Shanti says:

    oh yea I remember. next morning the bones were not completely burnt, actually someone was crushing the bones… and some people were trying to collect ashes as much as they could.
    I was so blissed out that i just went home to cry and laugh

  453. alok john says:

    I was a bit shocked that night. It was my first trip to Pune and I had been there about two weeks, and then He leaves the body! I was in Buddha Hall when it was announced. Went down to the ghats with everyone else in our white robes. Remember hundreds of sannyasins singing “The Universe is singing a song” as his body was burnt.

    At least I did something worthwhile in this life!

  454. prem bubbie says:

    Thanks Shanti, I’m glad you understand the stupidity of being obsessed with the minutiae called “the resort”. That’s what I meant about destroying the resort- irradiating it, so no one can even go near the land for thousands of years. That place will turn out just like Jerusalem, or Mecca, where bloodshed will happen, all over metaphors. The obsession over ashes, marble,and a bed is so incredibly insane, and these people call themselves sannyasins. They make Sheela look like the “virgin” Mary!!!! Unless there are no physical structures that are standing at the resort , hatred and violence will always be there. That’s how stupid and insane so many “sannyasins” have become. Now do the rest of you get it?

  455. shantam prem says:

    …..and some people were trying to collect ashes as much as they could.

    In my memory. there is a man who was collecting the Osho ashes in his cigratte pack.

    I wonder when some of these people will sell their esoteric treasures at ebay!

  456. garimo says:

    Hi Kranti,

    >But I am thinking of learning sonmething like this more for the joy of it.. Is that something NLP?

    Are you asking if NVC is like NLP? or were you just mixing up the letters?

    I don’t know much about NLP, but I think it’s about modeling and creating new behaviors that were not previously there.

    NVC seems to me more about self examination and observing the judgmental mind, and if any transformation happens it’s because of the awareness gained from redirecting the outward focus to inward… and other things too like listening.
    There are some introductory classes of NVC on the Pune schedule if you’re in that area… but if you go nearer to the source there won’t be the resort/commune added twists that hasn’t always benefited the programs the group department has borrowed from.

    -g

  457. Shanti says:

    Prem Bubbie. I thought I was the only one left who understood things the way we do.
    It must have been because we have gone back and forth with this trip… and for long enough to see how people get attached to symbols and metaphors.

    I remember a story osho used to tell about a zen master who, every time he was going to speak, a cat would enter the hall and disturb him.
    He asked the cat to be tied down while he spoke, every time he spoke. This happened many times.
    Finally the master died and people kept on tiding the cat down as a memoryof his speaches.
    With time the cat died and they made a statute of the tied cat and put it in next to the podium where the master used to speak.
    Nowadays the cat is worshiped in the monastery.

    I have the feeling that many old sannyasins are in that trip… absolutely attached to the non essential… worried about malas, and buildings, ashes, samadhis, etc.
    The tied down cat… has become more important that the search for consciousness.

  458. Kranti says:

    Garimo

    I meant NLP only..Anyway you clarified.. Let me take a look at the same..

    Thanks for sharing something valuable..

  459. Kranti says:

    Alok John.. You were very fortunate..You made it on time..

    But you must had been with Osho earlier at Ranch?

    People like me are not fortunate..I used to feel very negative about that ..Now as i understand more about myself and Inner silence i begin to relax..

    I read someone’s ( Kiran – May/June 2007
    archive ) experience of not able to make it on time to see Osho on oshoviha website.. Touch and go ..very touching story.. Please read it..

  460. oshobob says:

    Alok John,
    Absolutely, put that photo of Osho’s burning ghat up on the web. I for one would like to see it. And with as much commentary of your personal experience of that day too. Oddly enough, the documentation of that highly important event is quite poor, as are the events that led up to it. There’s more extensive video footage of Osho getting out of his car prior to discourse than of the day of the Buddha of all Buddhas Mahaparinirva. Quite odd, wouldn’t you say…?

    As you Alok, have some absolutely one-off slants on many things (e.g., your view that most sannyasins of the 70′s and 80′s were reincarnations of WW2 people that had committed dastardly crimes in the conflict). So your experience of that day would no doubt be quite unique. And Shanti too — I would love to hear your account. Write on…!

  461. Shanti says:

    Osho bobbie. here it goes.
    That Day i missed white robe to the hands of a tall Belgian sweetie.
    So that night I am sitting in my balcony drinking some chai when i hear all this music and dancing and white robe people along the lane. I come down and ask what is happening… and they tell me Osho left his body… I am like WHAT?!!!
    I am in shock. I go back up grab my white robe and join the caravan.
    We arrive to the gaths I am very far. The place is full and they place the body, put the wood, and lit it and then the singing. ” the universe is singing a song, the universe is dancing along… Oshhooooos,… and Oshhoos and I am dancing, singing, crying, and meditating. the energy is strong and the funeral pyre is full on. I stayed untill the morning. The body did not burn completely I could see the skull and some ribs and lots of wood ashes and people collecting them and also Vijay, his brother, and Amrito and other people collecting ashes and then they put in a brass, I think, bowl with a a lid and then i go home to cry and dance and mediate.
    I knew they paraded the ashes later through the ashram passing krishna House and the bookshop towards the samadhi, but i was not there.

  462. garimo says:

    >> worried about malas, and buildings, ashes, samadhis, etc.

    Shanti, My question then: Malas, building, ashes… but so what?! why so much energy preventing what others want. I agree, they’re not the thing and for me the whole story is they are also not preventing the thing.

    For me too it’s like you said: ” Let everyone go to where his/ her heart thrills “

    I wonder how will people ever be able to transform / transcend their illusions if they’re prevented from having them? All their time is spent in fighting to have… and others end up occupied with the fight preventing. Who will ever find time for the thing?

    And we all like to use one illusion or another for meeting some inner need. Do you know where the monastery is that has the tied cat? I’d enjoy seeing a photo of this statute.

    Be it a old zen story we tell our neighbors or a mala around our neck that we show… for me, neither are or prevent the thing.

    But the energy spent on these malas, building and ashes sure shape the quality of how we are traveling together along this path.

  463. shantam prem says:

    Shanti, as i wrote you in the personal mail, i can say here too that after watching Rajneesh video referred by you, i have forgotten what changes are being imposed by J&A team.
    His gestures, his speaking and i thought let me get the courage to open his book, it seems everything UTTERLY UTTERLY MEDIOCRE.

    Still people have their fundamental right to get their nourishment from anyone and everybody has a right to think himself/herself entitled for imparting their teachings to the willing pupils.

    BUT LET OSHO BE OSHO, unmodified, unedited, wild and uncastrated, Whether He left the body or died, does not need the crutches of anybody.

    Today i have read a nice sentence in my favourite novel, Shantaram” Worst wrongs have been done by the people who wanted to change(as per their understanding).

  464. Shanti says:

    One clarification for my recollection of Osho´s departure. I am not sure if the funeral pire burned only one night… it might have burned through the next day also… I am not sure. Alok do you remember?

  465. Shanti says:

    Garimo and Shantam. I am not in a power position to prevent anyone from having any fantasy. I am just stating my opinion.
    Of course everyone is free to feel, think and believe what he/ she wants.
    I do not like the editing neither Shantamy.

  466. shantam prem says:

    You have asked Alok, but let me clarify too that the last rites of Osho were done as per the cultural heritage of India but in His way.

    For example, the body is carried to the burning ghats by the male members only, But in Osho’s case, his female disciples participated equally. It is a great break through.

    And His ashes were collected after 2 nights and two days, as it is always so. if the body is cremated on the wooden pyre.
    Osho has spoken intensively in one of the best esoteric treatise, ” Main Kehta Ankhan Dekhi”( I say what i see) about the significance of 4th day and 13th.
    The way i have understood, on 4th day ashes are submerged in the rivers for the ordinary folks and preserved as Samadhi for enlightend and so called enlightends people, and 13th is the day, almost most of the souls have setlled in the new womb. Time to say, Good bye and have a good time in the neighbour family!

  467. Alok john says:

    Briefly,
    As far as I recall the pyre burnt for one night only and there were just embers left in the morning.

    Kranti, no I was not at the Ranch or Pune 1. I was around the movement from the 70s and took sannyas in 86 in Europe. I was always penniless, well poor anyway. You heard of people getting a “pull” to go to Pune. I never felt a “pull” until the autumn of 89 and then there was this strong “pull” and I managed to borrow the money arriving Pune Jan 3, 1990. Saw him about twelve times. He would come out and meditate with us for a few minutes before a video discourse.

    Will try and write tomorrow about Jan 19 and put the photo up, but am off to pub now, you gotta celebrate, haven’t you?

  468. shantam prem says:

    Death celebration on 19th Januray around 2100 (9PM)
    Ashes were collected on 21st around 9AM.

    And can some one tell where one can see the complete, the original version of ” I leave you my dream” on the net.

  469. oshobob says:

    Sure, it’s a great breakthrough Shantam, about those female disciples participating in carrying Osho’s body, but what struck me in watching it on the video “I Leave You My Dream,” is how unemotional all these long time women devotees look — Ma Mukta, Ma Anando, Ma Neelam, Ma Avirbhava — any normal observer would have expected these women to be on the floor in a pool of heartbreak mush, but, oddly enough, they seem so well composed, so cooly together in this moment of travail. Odd — very odd indeed. And only 2 hours after their master had died. Almost unbelievable I would say.

  470. Shanti says:

    I´m so angry, everywhere in internet where Our master is mentioned , there are ads and stuff from rajneesh see the page I found. it is disgusting
    In a site with osho discourse ans sponsored by rajneesh
    http://www.messagefrommasters.com/oshorajneesh/swamioshorajneesh.htm

  471. Shanti says:

    He says pon his sponsored page:
    “Osho Rajneesh also known as Swami Rajneesh is an Enlightened Disciple of Osho. As per my understanding, He is the only fully realized person at present on earth.”

    He sent that to be published… who is he trying to confuse!!!!?

  472. Prem Abhay says:

    Kranti whether or not the pagoda is called a pagoda or something else is a matter of semantics. For your inability to understand this please ask OshoBob what he calls the structure that was on top of the podium and walk-way. This is perhaps the most unintelligent or misleading you have yet been.

    The points I listed about resort decisions are simply examples of a systemic practice, the justification for is spiritual – other than the false practical reason for demolishing the pagoda.

    Yes Kranti the Inner-Circle could not arrive at a consensus, and this is why we are where we are. What you fail to address is that where we are now is also not a consensus.

    OshoBob you are being misleading with your statement that there is no pagoda. You have your technical linguistic reasons and that is fine. What is not fine is that people can easily be misled into thinking that the structure that sat upon the podium never ever existed in the first place. If you do not like to call it a pagoda than call it something else, but do not mislead people this way.

    Alok John writes….Thats what I feel.. The level of understanding they [Jayesh and Amrito] have about Osho is very highly concious.. You can not question their understanding

    To say noone can question their understanding is an utterly absurd infringement on the freedom and intelligence of individuals. It is also that type of view that supports ugly tyrannical political or religious systems: absolute and unquestioning respect to the regime.

    The people that are attached or whatever about malas, or buildings, or ashes, or pictures are surely free to enjoy their trip, if that is what it is. Osho always had clear space for this, and it was central to a majority of his years as a Master. Why then was the opposition so strong to this to the extent that we are today so deeply divided? JA&Gang wanted completed control and so they have enforced a restricted and supposedly refined Zen version of Osho. This they have done illegitimately. They are still doing it today illegitimately.

    Obviously supports of JA&Gang will have the view that they are making Osho more available, more understandable, and more suited to the needs of people today. Time will indeed be the test. How well is the new resort flourishing? How are all the associated centres going? How well are the book sales really? Are heavily edited compilations conveying a message that is really helping people, or just providing mass marketed entertainment (for profit)?

  473. oshobob says:

    Yeah right Shanti, that’s just a steaming pile of BS…

    That stuff about Rajneesh — self-promoting — as the present day singular Mahakashyap, is just laughable to the extreme.

    It is obfusction, it is ‘ilarious, it is so odd…

  474. garimo says:

    I tried to donate a negative 2 cents… but they didn’t want my donation.

  475. prem bubbie says:

    I just watched Monty Python’s “The Life of Brian”again, it was on cable last night . highly recommended viewing. it reminds me of this whole nonsense with sannyas today. It’s on the IFC movie channel, on
    Satellite or cable. Basic premise: how people can people can misinterpret what another person has said. Now it’s “Osho” Rajneesh instead of just swami, how disgusting. He’s another “wolf in sheep’s clothing”. Protect your bank accounts!!!!

  476. garimo says:

    my new conspiracy theory:

    That rajneesh guy is in cahoots and working for those inner circle guys to get revenge on the sannyasin community for supporting the successful no trademark registration movement…

  477. amrito says:

    lol Osho Bob, from your last comments about the women who helped carry Osho ashes?

    comman, be a bit more clear! What are you hinting at that was “odd”…comman, take the carrot out of the stick and open the can of worms

    Because…there are a few more people who talk alot about this contentious issue..

  478. Anand says:

    Th ashes of Osho were protected by Dhyanesh, but it was possible to get some pieces, if you were courageous enough and clever.
    We all were in some state of shock, when Osho left his body and felt like actors in some movie. The real emotions only broke free much later.
    If the real ashes are still there at Osho Samadhi in Chuang Tzu hall is not clear.
    The Samadhi was closed for two weeks a year ago under the excuse of installing a Osho statue (!). The ashes could have been removed and brought to
    maybe London. Only very few people would know.
    Devageet still has some teeths of Osho.
    And last: original video footage of that time still exists.

  479. Chinmaya says:

    Dear Shantam

    At the time of death of my father, his body was accompanied by ladies too. My wife lit the pyre of my father in the Burning Ghats next day and performed other rites in my absence as I was away to UK and was unable to reach in time.

    But I have every doubt about some conspiracy of Osho death and hushing up the matter, to take away the body for last rites to cremation grounds, about the litting of the pyre of Osho at 9 or 10 PM, at such late evening hours, which is not proper as per Indian culture. Indian culture on this subject says, to lit the pyre between sun rise to sun set only. After sun set is the time of Bhairo / Kalyug or Rahu or Demons.

    What was the hurry to hush up burning of the body. They had not given the chance to the His people in India, to reach and participate in the procession and have last Darshan of Osho.

    Definitely, some conspiracy was there which led to His early depart from this earth. Some people seem to be responsible to His body episode, which made Him to leave His body early. And this made to happen to avoid Police case/Enquiry/Post Martem etc.etc. and later made stories and crocodile tears.

  480. Anand says:

    Rajneesh slow walking swami stinks!

  481. Kranti says:

    Thanks Alok John..

  482. Kranti says:

    ” Kranti whether or not the pagoda is called a pagoda or something else is a matter of semantics ”

    I dont think it is semantics .. If thats the case ‘ adding significance to a building ‘ also semantics..isnt it?

    To me it seems , It is not a special pagoda or stupa where relics are preserved.. It was a meditation hall.

    When the money and growth happened a new auditorium was built as per Osho’s wishes.. So the olde one was transformed and used as a open hall for dancing and other progarms.

    But Let me know why you think it is special apart from the fact that Osho delivered his discourses for number of years.. I can understand better.

  483. Kranti says:

    ” You can not question their understanding”

    This the problem when we use language and that too in a forum..I didnt mean we accept tyrany and all. All i meant is they lived closer to Osho enough and looking at all the happenings they seem to understand Osho better than others.. Osho for What He Is ..

    Osho himself extracted the essence of so many paths and made us understand then so easily..Otherwise we would have spent another 25 lives getting through the ‘dust ‘.. So what is the point of coloring Osho himself..

    For lack of words we use the word ZEnnish.. But I dont think they are implementing ZEN approach..

    Actually they are just being Oshotic

    It is not Zen version of Osho. It is the Osho version of everything / all paths put together..

  484. Alok john says:

    Briefly again,
    The women were all composed that night because they knew Osho would have wanted it that way. He said celebrate eveything and that certainly included his passing into the beyond.

    Amrito said Osho said “Take my body to Buddha Hall for a few minutes and then take me to the ghats.” I see no reason to disbelieve this. The announcement was made in Buddha Hall about 7pm and he was burnt around 9pm. You must remember there were lots of unstable sannyasins around, and to burn the body fast with the sannyasins there celebrating was probably the best way to avoid idiocy amongst sannyasins. Even then one person killed himself that night.

  485. Kranti says:

    ” Amrito said Osho said “Take my body to Buddha Hall for a few minutes and then take me to the ghats.” I see no reason to disbelieve this. The announcement was made in Buddha Hall about 7pm and he was burnt around 9pm.”

    Thats where trust comes in..It is easy to disbelive and look for stories the mind asks for .. I will rather focus on what Osho gave when He lived ..Because thats what matters to us as sannyasins..

  486. chetna says:

    “Rajneesh slow walking swami stinks!”

    I tend to agree There is something wrong with this guy. He is talking of silence but to me he looks aggressive and vulgar. I’ve read his book-more than enough. No need even to meet the man…. Too bad….

    I am one of those second generation sannyasins (Puna 3), but have enough understanding not to buy his nonsense.

    Sannyas world is getting truly crazy. Once all old sannyasins are gone I may see the real show starting….Sannyasins of Rajneesh etc coming up….

  487. Kranti says:

    ” he looks aggressive and vulgar”

    Chetna.. did you see his remarks / personal attacks against Anthony & ZEN justifications..Or you are saying this without even seeing the same..See and let us know .. You will look into the dictionary for better word than aggressive and vulgar

  488. chetna says:

    That’s my opinion from seeing 10 min o his videos. And yes, I say one comment to Anthony re his girlfriend. Wow! The man does sleep out of his enlightment.

    When I heardo him I was almost happy that finally someone is speaking out loud against some mistakes done by Pne, but now I think he is just dangerous to new sannyasins who run after energy and stories.

    I am quite shocked to see that he has followers. Is everyone really asleep? The man may have some energy (?), but he is a clown.

  489. chetna says:

    forgive my spelling….

  490. Kranti says:

    there is a difference between Sw Arun and Sw Keerthi taking up issues with Pune on differences of opinion and how Rajneesh is approaching the same.

    Oh! I forgot Chtena.. He tore apart Osho himself stating Osho was a Rolls guru , He always acted out of poor man’s conditioning , he was money hugry , he exploited sannyasin labour to build the ranch and He was resposible for lot of stupid things which happen now etc etc.. I didnt want to repeat them Since you were not in touch with the forum for sometime i just highlighted..

  491. chetna says:

    I’ve looked a bit just now-scary and funny. I am in India now and hear that there is a camp with an enlight Master Rajneesh here and there. Thanks God he is not welcome in the communes that I stay at.

    That’s it, I also declare myself enlightened. At least I won’t have to do any of Rajneshe’s camps.

  492. Anthony thompson says:

    I see the topic of Sw. Rajneesh popping up again. I saw the links posted by Shanti..shocking, amusing… I specially liked the quote “Osho Rajneesh also known as Swami Rajneesh is an Enlightened Disciple of Osho. As per my understanding, He is the only fully realized person at present on earth.”

    It is good to be so blessed by such enlightening presence.

    Mu interaction with him was one of my reasons for slowing down here in the forum.

    It went like this:
    • Anthony Thompson // Oct 5, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    thank you

    anything for a friend or a girlfriend of a friend”
    I was extremely offended by his dragging my girlfriend to the game.

    Finally rajneesh suggested that people like me should have …” their heads needs to be sharply cut off”

    and then artistically he added:
    “and so far you have not placed one single clear argument and only vomited out your judgments
    so i cut your head…or your your d++k off”

    wow…I am shocked with so much enlightenment.

    Thats a good idea.. You dont have to go behind someone..

    Talking about enlightenment i came across this url about a Osho quote on enlightenment..Interesting as i never came across Osho saying this before

    ” “Enlightenment is the reward for watching yourself in action ”

  495. Kranti says:

    What worries me is ( I may be wrong ) the kind of opportunism exhibited in attacking Inner Circle and Osho himself and positioning that as a rebellious movement

    After all we had Osho attacking all other paths and attacking itself is not new to us..But the manner in which is done , the tragetted audience , the context , target on Samadhi , conflicting priorities when it comes to samadhi but attacking Osho , few gaurantess thrown in like whatever happened with Osho will not be allowed in future .. Its all confusing and dont fit it..

  496. Kranti says:

    Anthony , What is your take on that pagoda and samadhi.. Oshobob explained there was never a pagoda in the first place..

    I also agree.. The definition for pagoda is complex.. you cant just start calling a meditation hall ‘ pagoda ‘ just because it was destroyed and a new hall built as an alternative..

    But what about samadhi.. I read somewhere that Osho himself designed that as His bedroom when He was in body..Was it converted later as samadhi?

  497. Anthony thompson says:

    Kranti. the information I have Is that Osho sent the old chwang Tzu auditorium, to be transformed into his new bedroom. they brought marble from carrara in Italy, the chandelier, etc. But he did not like it. he spent a night or so and went back to his old room.
    Amrito reported osho saying before his death:

    “He sat on the bed and I asked what we should do for his samadhi. You just put my ashes in chwang tzu, under the bed. And people can come and meditate there”

    What Amrito argues is that osho never named or talked about that place as samadhi, but they did. So, it was not Osho´s assigned name to the place. The name he gave was chwang Tzu. Of course I have no way to know of this is true.

    The roof of the podium had indeed a ” pagoda” look. But it is true Osho wanted a new auditorium where they could have loud dynamic and dancing and do not bother the neighbors.

    hey guts have you noticed that Anurag, amitabh and meera, all disappeared at the same time when anurag went to brazil.
    Strange ah?!
    did he take them all with him?

  499. Kranti says:

    Other day i was exchnaging some messages with Swami Keerthi to understand some point and he was explaining to me that Osho was very practical .. I can also see that from the things you mention here.. he never hung up on physical structures as though he would have mentioned certain things in a context..

    Ofcourse i dont mean this post to be a judgement on Osho..Just my way of seeing Him from one more angle..

    I was reading that Great Pilgrimge again today morning and went Wow!! So fresh.. He never seizes to amaze me..

  502. Shanti says:

    Love is not the word kranti… we simply adored him. We used to bring Diet coke from germany for him, conditioners and shampoos from all over the world and facial cream too.
    We built a glass walk way for him in his garden ( where you have the vipassana retreats now)… and he used only once. he never knew his own ashram… he only once came out to see the multiversity plaza and that was it.

  503. Swami Pavitro (Hawai) says:

    There you go again Ma Shanti !

  504. Kranti says:

    ” and he used only once. he never knew his own ashram… he only once came out to see the multiversity plaza and that was it. ”

    I dont know what to say.. how can someone be like that..Whenever he says he never goes out of his room i used to think what else he will do .. How can someone be so blissful without any need to go out or see his own place out of curiocity etc.. Seeing how restless i am to do 1001 things all the time i am very nervous

    Ya…Love seems to be a ordinary word compared to what He gave us..

    I dont know about Amitabh and Meera….But Anurag and Rajneesh are the same.. Otherwise after saying a Big bye and meet you after sometime why he should keep sending so many posts thru Anurag.. If he has time to prepare messages he could have posted directly .. Why a middle man ? Not logical.. Thats why you could also see a desparation in Anurag to defend Rajneesh almost in every post.. The desperation sounded direct..no that of another person..

  516. oshobob says:

    Right, Bubbie, there’s some very fishy identities swimming around at sannyasnews…that’s the nature of the beast though, on the net…

    Alok John, thanks for posting those photos. Though I was hoping for some Jan. 19 documentary snapshots, I guess it wasn’t to be.

    Your explanation of the reason for the Ma’s cool nature carrying off Osho’s body from Buddha Hall was quite a stretch for the imagination — they don’t look they are “celebrating” to me — looks more like a well rehearsed scene.

    As we here are all wordsmiths of sorts, here’s an amazing etymology I just discovered about that word “pagoda.”

    It seems it is a Portuguese word that was derived from the original Sanskrit word “bhagavata”, a feminine form of the word meaning “the blessed”, or “divine” — yes, that’s right — “Bhagwan” !!

    The full Chinese word for their multi-storied Buddhist stupa relic/ash tombs is “baota”, a transliteration of “pagoda” shortened usually to just “ta” — one single Chinese character.

    Amazing the buried facts that come out eventually if you hang tough on sannyasnews!

  517. oshobob says:

    By the way Alok, I found your sannyas initiation date of July 1986 to be really interesting. Osho had just finished his Transmission of the Lamp talks in Uruguay, and was on his way to Bombay to start with what was to become The Osho Upanishad talks.

    Those Transmission of the Lamp talks (this title, btw, copy and pasted directly from the 11th century Chinese Zen “bible” of the same name) were a series that was spoken to just a small group, maybe 20, of very close sannyasins sitting together in a room in South America. Unlike any of his other discourses.

    I have just put up the whole series at my website in mp3 audio files, for free immediate playback. You’ll feel like you are sitting in that same room with Osho, 5 feet away. 46 talks. Here’s the link:

    Thank you Oshobob.. I will listen straightaway..before sleeping off

  519. Harri Om says:

    There is a general pattern taking place here that seems unlikely to change. Shantam would have it that it is like the uncompromising battle between Israel and Palestine. I disagree uncompromisingly. This is why. Anthony and Kranti and others have made their views known. There issues have been responded to. The critical point is that rather than addressing the responses Anthony and Kranti and others simply repeat their former viewpoint. They have clearly not changed their position at all. Perhaps they have not read the responses because they assume the responses will anyhow be unintelligent and illegible. Perhaps they have read the responses and consider them not worthy of reply. Another possibility is that they have seen that the responses are a clear and direct challenge to their understanding. If this is the case they may be unable to rebut the counter-position. There are two possibilities here. Perhaps they feel they are right, but have not the intellectual capacity to adequately respond. If this is the case then it is therefore also the case that the counter-position holders have a high intellectual capacity – above the establishment’s supporters. Perhaps however they feel that they are wrong. If there is a sense that they are wrong then this puts immense pressure on their personal worth. They have to some extent publicly announced their views, and to have these views quashed would be humiliating. In this way they may prefer to stubbornly hold on to their unviable position simply because they are unwilling to accept the public humiliation. If an unbiased and half intelligent person reads through the debate they will be wondering why no replies were made. They will also be wondering what might be credible replies. It is like when Kranti and OshoBob intentionally or otherwise led people to think that the structure surrounding Osho as he talked in Buddha Hall never existed in the first place. A subtle shift had it that the structure was dismantled. Again this is an obfuscation of the truth that it was an existing structure that was smashed into little pieces (demolished) in the middle of the night. A clear reply was made to make sure there was no misunderstanding about the actually existence and demolishing of an actual structure – call it what you like. Ironically OshoBob has followed his own way of understanding and reached to a meaning for the term ‘pagoda’ that actually fits beautifully with the pagoda. That OshoBob has done this shows he is not entrenched in a certain belief about the pagoda, and is open to new ideas and understandings. He demonstrates that he does not have a preconceived view about the status of the pagoda. A preconceived view would mean an argument was created about the pagoda to back up this preconceived view. If he had of done so he would either have not done the research to find out a deeper meaning of the term pagoda, or else he would not have shared what he found out. If you want people like Prem Abhay, Amitabh, Anurag, Swami Rajneesh (and many others) to move towards a consensus then the issues that they have raised need to be addressed. In this way these rebellious supposed guru trippers will have some substantive material to work with that challenges their understanding. If you disagree with my appraisal then I give here some material for you. Why does Anthony simply repeat his first position (copy and paste), when there have been many and varied responses? Why does Kranti do the same? Each time there is a response to Kranti’s critique of Abhay or Rajneesh, Kranti simply repeats his original position. Kranti and Anthony and others need to do more than just ignore the other position, or simply say it is wrong or trivial. They need to explain why it is that it is wrong or trivial, or why they have ignored it. This has not been done, and leaves a very big question mark over the establishment’s entire credibility. Another example is the overarching conclusion that the Inner-Circle are acting making spiritually justified decisions that impact on spiritual matters, that this conduct is outside their practical mandate, and they are therefore illegitimate. There have been no replies to this position.

    I’ll make my request that the owners/operators of this “social network?” consider doing any of my ideas that they consider useful:

    a) do nothing because everything is always perfect exactly as it is
    b) add IP numbers to posts so those who care can see how many post from which IP address
    c) play a guessing game with us where we ask if someone posts from the same IP address as another – and we get a yes or no answer
    d) prevent multiple posters (“sock puppets”) from the same IP address
    e) offer other ideas

    thanks,

  521. prem bubbie says:

    My dear Garimo, you have valid ideas though I think none of them will work. it is too easy to hide one’s IP address, there are web sites that allow users to use another IP address other than one’s own. A person can also use a friend’s computer or an internet computer at a public university or library. i am all for some simple questions to be answered, as Shantam Prem has done, to those certain posters whose true identity is in question. But the impostors can be easily spotted if you have your eyes open. Trust is too freely given to those who post here. Trust the great cosmos blindly, otherwise trust needs to be earned.

  522. garimo says:

    Hey Prem Bubbie,

    I think “a)” is very doable! :-)

    I used to be more active on Tribe.net and it did become overwhelmed with sock puppets. (Tribe is way larger than Sannyasnews with thousands) Eventually the owner went on a sock hunting spree and deleted many accounts and publicly exposed some of the major puppet masters who contributed to the anarchy. (puppets as art forms lived on…) It seemed to improve the quality of content greatly.

    I understand there’s ways around everything, I understands reasons why someone would want an alt…

    and at times I’m not opposed to making being deceptive more difficult. I think make ‘em work for it. Let ‘em put their pants on and go use the library computer when it’s open if they need to disguise their identity.

    ” critical point is that rather than addressing the responses Anthony and Kranti and others simply repeat their former viewpoint. ”

    So Harri Om , Abhay and others have changed / evolved thru their view points and moving towards different understanding than the one they started with ???

    Is that we we are supposed to understand?

    What change in view points we have seen from Harri Om , Abhay and others?

    Atlleast the so called Anthony , Kranti and others have accepted few changes they want to see / that they dont agree with everything as it is / by and large they are in agreement with how things are happening etc

    Have we seen any such acceptance of others view s/ dilution / chnage of view points from others? they have not even come down from their position of calling people as Criminals and Thugs leave alone discussing and changing view points

    and get that person and deporet him to a ´work camp´ where these people were burnt in gaschambers…

    this is exactly the same idea as Garimo is suggesting…

    figure out who is against the establishment.
    find out their IP
    and eleminate them

    so all the idiots are left over on this planet ..
    they have the power .. t
    hey have all the war weapons…
    they can burn the rebels and artists and mystics

    they have no love

    only LUST FOR POWER

    just change your poison into honey
    and you can create a paradies on earth…

    banning s.o for slow walking from the resort
    only proves that these people are perverted criminals
    full of lust for power
    they don´t want to be disturbed in their fucking and hugging
    they contribute nothing to the world
    just spreading their EGOgames..
    they have no love
    only jealousy , hatred ,envy
    they believe they still have controll over stupid Indians

    these are the same category of people
    who divided India and pakistan
    and gave them atombombs to kill each other
    the same people
    who suck the third world
    and live on their expences…

    any Idiot who gets power in his hand
    will be as destructive
    as the same people he might have condemnd before..

    poor Rajneesh he is only one man-….
    but the whole gang is shivering in front of him
    afraid to lose their position
    which is anyway nothing

  525. Kranti says:

    ” Kranti and Anthony and others need to do more than just ignore the other position, or simply say it is wrong or trivial. They need to explain why it is that it is wrong or trivial, or why they have ignored it.”

    They did not ignore. They explained in every possible way . The problem is the other group strongly believes there ARE MAJOR PROBLEMS and those problems are related to Osho Vision , Crimes and Violence .

    But Anthony , Kranti and others ( I am sticking to the grouping as mentioned by Harri Om and not trying redefine it… So Garimo please bear with me ) see that by and large things are the way they are supposed to be. They dont see any such problems except for differences of opinons in execution of practical / mundane issues . This group also agrees we do have issues related to banning .

    Can we see one good thing Harri Om / Abhay group accepts about PUNE? Do they mean to say things are 100% wrong there . So the outside world is PERFECT ?

    The whole issue is because of this Highly EXAGERRATED reactionsof people e & ADAMANCY & REFUSAL to give credit to good things done by Pune and not leaving any room for discussion, in addition to calling people by names and degrading them.

    And opportunism in the form of bringing in Rajneesh which in the eys of everyone never looked healthy from the word go.. And Rajneesh didnt do anything to improve this situation as an awakened man.. He could have facilitated a beautiful sharing and discussion .. In spite of that he spoiled such an opportunity..

    Now with that kind of approach how on earth they expect people others to accept their views.

    The first requirement is people like Harri Om , Abhay and few others have to drop their aggressiveness and start seeing the positive side of things because they are the ones asking for change not the first group.. Any group which wants to see a change should be more than willing to talk not attack..

  526. Kranti says:

    If someone needs any proof for my last post JUST read the previous post of Meera . It will indicate why positive discussion / sharing is NOT possible.. This has been the CORE approach adopted

    JUST Attack . Attack . attack and Call people Criminals , Thugs and what not and then say ‘ OTHERS dont have intellectual capacity to understand ..

    Common Harri Om .. Give us a break..

    Now waiting for Meera to react to this post of mine..

    Rajneesh has given a ´beautiful sharing`in his book

    it is all Osho´s work

    these people are only spreading their stupid EGOs.
    showing their stupid faces

    I forget, I ever forget, that I have no wings to fly, that I am bound in this spot evermore.

    I am eager and wakeful, I am a stranger in a strange land.
    Thy breath comes to me whispering an impossible hope.
    Thy tongue is known to my heart as its very own.
    O Far-to-seek, O the keen call of thy flute!
    I forget, I ever forget, that I know not the way, that I have not the winged horse.

    I am listless, I am a wanderer in my heart.
    In the sunny haze of the languid hours, what vast vision of thine takes shape in the blue of the sky!

    The cage bird whispers, “Come hither, let us both live in the cage.”
    Says the free bird, “Among bars, where is there room to spread one’s wings?”
    “Alas,” cries the caged bird, “I should not know where to sit perched in the sky.”

    The free bird cries, “My darling, sing the songs of the woodlands.”
    The cage bird sings, “Sit by my side, I’ll teach you the speech of the learned.”
    The forest bird cries, “No, ah no! songs can never be taught.”
    The cage bird says, “Alas for me, I know not the songs of the woodlands.”

    There love is intense with longing, but they never can fly wing to wing.
    Through the bars of the cage they look, and vain is their wish to know each other.
    They flutter their wings in yearning, and sing, “Come closer, my love!”
    The free bird cries, “It cannot be, I fear the closed doors of the cage.”
    The cage bird whispers, “Alas, my wings are powerless and dead.”

    you say: “Rajneesh has given a ´beautiful sharing`in his book

    if you idiots don´t get it

    how much more ´beautiful sharing´do you want?”

    Did you read the book? It is very poorly written. Bad literature, to be honest.
    You may like what he says, that is another matter, but dear, the guy does not even know how to write: He could have payed someone to do it for him. He has the money. He spends a lot of it sponsoring websites and putting his add everywhere… he could have hired a good writer to write it for him.
    If you are a well read person you will see that his educational level is quite low. i am a designer myself. And I know that designers do not get a good intellectual education. We never write papers or essays in our studies. and you can see that in rajneesh.

    So, it is not a matter of “US” being ” idiots”, but of your master poor writing skills, and the fact that we are not impressed by that ” beauty”.

  539. shantam prem says:

    Meera, please go in the world and like Mormons or Jehovah’s, share the dawn of a new book with the world at large, as an American you have all the advantage.

    On the other side stay here, as the beach volley ball between two Ma’s is quite intoxicating.

    Harri Om, how so ever i try to justify your writing skills and more or less valid points, all go down the drain as long as you are not showing your face at your blog or any where..
    For me and i think for many, faceless people are Jihadis, fanatics and psychopaths.
    A man who swears by democracy, at least in the name of democracy must come clean and stay with his beliefs. You leave your thoughts like orphans.

    ANd Shanti ji…don’t you think people who are complainign about resort management have also some brain, awareness, intellect and dedication towards Osho.
    Is it appropriate to simply shake their concern with arrogance?

    and finally to those sannaysins who are dancing at the tune of rajneesh- If suddenly an unknown seekers on the earth clicks by chance at his book or read the ads. and join Rajneesh meditation camp and starts feeling the spark, i will say, well done men. You both have earned it.
    But if a Osho sannyasin feels the same through him i wish to say, it is Incest… One is not suppose to sing songs about the size of one’s own brother’s prick!

  540. Shanti says:

    Shantamy. Abhay-harri om is certainly an intelligent man. And you too. and many others.
    Meera definitely does not fall into this category.
    love

  541. Kranti says:

    Yes Shantam.. I dont think except for a couple people who kept calling others idiots and racists others have had great sharing only.. We still dont agree with each other on number of things ( not even one thing to be precise ) but i dont think anyone has been dismissive of others ..

    There was an attempt by Harri Om to establish that one grioup is not at all accepting anything and they are ignoring etc which is not the case..Infact because of those two or three people the situation was quite opposite to what Harri Om tried to present today..

  542. Kranti says:

    The anger / language shown by Meera continuously in her posts is quiet opposite to the poems she selected from the ‘ MEERA ‘ link given by Garimo… two sides of her coming out .

  543. Shanti says:

    I am not so belligerent in nature. But If I have an evangelical telling me all the time I am stupid for not liking her master.. then it turns a bit difficult for me to be detached..

  544. Kranti says:

    Stereo typed.. the only thing she keeps doing is supporting Rajneesh & calling others inlcuding pune as idiots … No other discussion or content in the posts..

  545. oshobob says:

    Talking of poets and ashes…

    As we speak, in Spain they are trying to now dig up the remains of the long dead poet Garcia Lorca and positively identify him, He was supposedly executed in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) between the leftists (Lorca and comrades) and the Franco rightists. The “family” is against it, but may cooperate a bit, they say…

    Now it sounds similar to this Osho sannyasin Civil War that we see here — communism vs. democracy, right vs. wrong, Gang of Two vs. everyone else nearly, devotional vs. Zen, West vs. East, and on and on…

    Who is who, multiple identities, Meera the poster and Meera the poet, Osho the Master of all Masters and Rajneesh the New Man, and don’t forget the Osho Dhara 3-some (you’ve gotta see their new YouTube — little photos of them sitting in some lotus flowers in a field — frank would love it, ‘tea-cosies” and all),

    ashes in the samadhi, in tapoban, in cigarette packages, ashes at all…?

    ashes in the pagodas in China, pagodas being pagodas because they kinda look like pagodas in form,

    thousands of languages in the world, but even in one language there is not too much understanding, everyone pretty much keeps their viewpoints no matter what…bunker down, defend the fort….

    Where is the “family” here, how many fallen poets must there be,,, is it possible to exhume Lorca, and how about Osho, …..who is going to sort all this out….?

  546. Shanti says:

    No one. We are just chatting in front of our computers. When we have enough money to travel we will go where the hearts thrill.
    Shantam will visit her beloved Neelam in Nisarga, Amrito will Be in Nepal with Arun, Alok john, Anthony, Kranti and me will go to the resort. frank will go to the pub, you will go to china,
    And meera, anusrag, amitabh and rajneesh will go to hell…

    See as anand said, it is all good,… and perfect

  547. shantam prem says:

    Shantam will visit her beloved Neelam in Nisarga…..

    Shanti Dear, Shantam has never been any where and goes no where other than 17, Koregaon park, Pune.

    But in case you change the venue of our future date to Dharamshala, i will definately come there too.
    To be true, i find intelligent, gorgeous and seeker woman more attractive than all the gurus combined together in a vegetable soup.

    When was the last time we were all singing,” Home is where the heart is….my heart is with YOU.”
    I think “you” was meant for existence, Osho and the he/she as per the inner state.

  548. Shanti says:

    “…been traveling a day, been traveling a year, been traveling a life time to find my way home. home is where the heart is…”

    last time ah? i think it was sannyas celebration 2008 in the ashram… and with milarepa…2007 in the US, in his one sky band tour.

    Sorry did not mean to offend you… see you in 17 koregaon park.

  549. shantam prem says:

    PS-correction—Woman is with e not with a.
    And from gurus, i mean those who are available write now in the super markets. Few are branded, few are copy cats and few are just in the process of market research.

  550. shantam prem says:

    “…been traveling a day, been traveling a year, been traveling a life time to find my way home. home is where the heart is…”

    Just read the text and felt a tear in my left eye.

    Such music and texts are the foundation of new age spiritual music of our time.

    I think, last song in this catagory was Namaste”, than comes Bollywood sounds in the ashram, they touch neither the first chakra nor the fourth or the seventh.

    And yes..As a Spanish, can you tell me how it will feel, if someone plays “Julio Iglesias” in Buddha hall without roof.

  551. Kranti says:

    ” And meera, anusrag, amitabh and rajneesh will go to hell ‘

    Such a twist in the last line.. I am laughing …

  552. Kranti says:

    Talking about bollywood music at pune i just see it as fun stuff for westeners.. To enable them to get a taste of bollywood dance.. I dont see any seriousness in it..

  553. Kranti says:

    Oshobob..You really packed so much in that post..

    Yes..It Is a long time since we had Oshodhara jokes..I will see them first

  554. Kranti says:

    Oshobob..Plese give us the link..I started searching / looking into few vedeos and lost whatever enlightenment I had.. I have to start again on the path now..

  555. shantam prem says:

    Shanti has booked the ticket of Meera and co. and one doesn’t see any note of thanks or aknowledgement.

    i think many of us will be anticipating how Meera will punch back!

  556. oshobob says:

    Here’s that Oshodhara YouTube video, I like it…
    it has some catchy Indian music, some great photos of The Man himself, and about 4 minutes into it you can see little photos of Osho and Osho Triumverate in some lotus flowers, and a classic picture of Osho’s brother Osho Shailendra looking at a table of little colorful figures of some scene…quite surrealistic!

  557. meera says:

    yes we are in hell
    at least there is some fun going on…

    OSHO is here with us..and .my beloved Krishna
    playing the flute

    your heaven is very boring
    all dead numb silly saints….

    at least we keep the CELEBRATION going

    OSHO OSHO OSHOOOOOOOOOOO

    I LOVE YOUR LOVE

    meera

  558. Shanti says:

    see? now where is the thank you meera?

    Shantamy… namaste.. yes a classic!! I danced it like crazy back in `98.
    MMMh… fun times

  559. garimo says:

    re: cut & paste guru video

    I made it almost all the way through!!

    “Osho: The Movie coming soon!”

    I hope it’s better than the blurry photoshop skills.

  560. Shanti says:

    Thanks oshobob. I loved the video… so india, you know. i liked the fotoshops withe the three stooges walking in some caribean forest. Also the one with osho surrounded bay lots of other ” gods”.
    You can not even get angry with this… it is cute. so funny. You have to be really from the same block to buy that scheme

  561. Anand says:

    For me I will be in Pune, drinking bottled water only and enjoying the blissful energy of our master. Who gets it, gets it…who doesn’t get it: be happy with the fake swami rajneesh, who even steals his masters name. But there are many people called Jesus in Hispanic culture…no harm done.

  562. Harri Om says:

    Kranti, your summing up shall be with no direct response from me: rather just a little end-cap of humour for you. It is with pride that you say that those in favour of the establishment will go to Pune resort and continue on their merry way. There is just one condition for this: that I and others are wrong. You see Prem Abhay and Swami Rajneesh and others have nothing to lose if they are right. In that sense they have already lost everything: they are banned and ostracised by what has historically been considered the mainstream or central Osho movement. No harm shall come to them at the Pune resort for they cannot enter. Of course I am potentially in the same position as you for I am not banned. Osho’s greatest Zen joke was to leave a legacy not a vision. My little Zen joke (for now) is that I can (and shall) enter the Pune resort whenever I please. In fact I will make a point of having a cup of chai with you.

    Kranti, just a little more humour for you and your friends. A Master says to relax (or perhaps to celebrate) when that is the need. It is in this time that the disciples have gained easy passage in the stream of life. Later on, around a bend or two, things may change: a waterfall or perhaps an endless mountain range. At this time the Master says that enlightenment is not for the faint hearted: do not lose hope, carry on, just round the next corner, just over the next peak, and you shall arrive. When a person is in a stage of life where everything is going their way then they do not anyhow need a Master – although a Master would of course carry the reminder that though riches come they also shall go. Enjoy your oasis in Pune while it lasts, and just a little reminder for you and your friends about the journey thus far: when the Master came to visit you laughed and sent the Master away. This is not here to try and instil fear or guilt in you. Your choices become your journey. The Master is always laughed at by the blind and arrogant. The mind and its fanciful ideas are not always capable of meeting the challenges of the inner journey. If no significant change comes then will you turn to management for guidance? How strong is your knowing? How deep is your trust? Who will be there in your time of need? Will the pretty façade alone be sufficient?

    Shanti it is sometimes not what is said but what is not said that is of importance. You have no idea of me, and probably very little of Prem Abhay. You have not a clue who I am, where I am, where I shall go, what I shall do, and lastly whether I am or not at all.

  563. Krishnananda says:

    Hmmm! The Buddhas on this thread seem to be engaged in great Discussions :-)

    By the way, Swami Arun is coming to US for some more camps, this time in LA, SF, Seattle and Dallas In Feb/March ’10. His schedule will be up soon on tapoban.com

  564. Krishnananda says:

    Also Anyone interested in Osho’s Geeta Darshan (in English)? I have translated a couple of Geeta Darshan Volumes from Hindi to English and I would like to share them with interested friends. Reply to this thread with your email, I can send in some chapters.

  565. prem bubbie says:

    Please watch: On CNN – Larry King Live 9pm eastern time(U.S.) tonight (wednesday) Deepak Chopra and Dr. Amen the first 40 minutes of the broadcast, you might be able to watch it over the internet at CNN’s web site- not sure though. Finally we maybe able to understand Sheela and her gang’s actions at the ranch along with Pune 1 and 2. along with our own madness!!! I think what is covered in the show is more important than anything posted so far especially the pune 3 nonsense. PLEASE check it out ya’ all.

  566. prem bubbie says:

    Finally, medical science at it’s best. No bull, no superstitions or obsessions involved. Just pure straightforward science.

  567. prem bubbie says:

    Also in Wednesday’s local newspaper in Eugene, Oregon called “The Register Guard” there’s a story that a big piece of the ranch is going to be traded for another piece of government owned land to create a giant land preservation. Read it at: http://www.registerguard.com

  568. garimo says:

    Prem Bubbie is in Eugene?!

    I grew up in Eugene. Most all my family is Oregon. I was near Bend at a sisters about a week ago…

    Somedays I think about going “home” and other days I think I’m already home.

    -g

  569. prem bubbie says:

    Didn’t know that Garimo !!!! I’ve been here and in the area for 16 years now. came from New York City. Where are you now? Drop me a line when your in town, Kranti has my email address. See ya soon bubbs My one and only physical “home” was the ranch

  570. Kranti says:

    ” My little Zen joke (for now) is that I can (and shall) enter the Pune resort whenever I please. In fact I will make a point of having a cup of chai with you. ”

    Yes.. It will be great to see your face and have a cup of chai.. ( If you had not been banned so far you can not be Abhay )

    Your last post is qualitatively different from earlier ones.. Thanks for sharing some light on the path

  571. Kranti says:

    Harri Om

    I am laughing.. My last post was in responce to your complaint people dont respond to you and Abhay and others..I explained we did respond.. For that you give me a reply stating ‘” your summing up shall be with no direct response from me”

  572. Kranti says:

    Shanti.. The last post from Meera was not Meera like at all.. Very mealowed

    ” yes we are in hell
    at least there is some fun going on…

    OSHO is here with us..and .my beloved Krishna
    playing the flute

    your heaven is very boring
    all dead numb silly saints….

    at least we keep the CELEBRATION going

    OSHO OSHO OSHOOOOOOOOOOO

    I LOVE YOUR LOVE ”

    What happed to Meera? Think she saw some vedeos of that Oshodhara stuff

  573. Kranti says:

    I am curious to know what Harri Om and Abhay think about Oshodhara.. Hope atleast on Oshodhara we have some agreement that we all like the joke equally

  574. garimo says:

    I current live in the Redwoods 6 miles inland from Santa Cruz.

  575. Kranti says:

    Sorry Oshobob.. I couldnt even make it to half of the vedeo.. I started feeling dizzy ..seriously ..not joking..those guys are always too much for me..Think they removed what i posted in their blog also

  576. Kranti says:

    ” when the Master came to visit you laughed and sent the Master away. ”

    I dont know who laughed and sent the master away..Which category of people you mean?

    If no significant change comes then will you turn to management for guidance?

    Who said we rely on management for guidance .. I dont think so..Infact the whole effort of them is stop guiding you by holding your hand but providing space for you to walk the path

  577. shantam prem says:

    Kranti, i hope you see that Meera is using the same terminology ans style what Osho and His people have used before 1990.

    Osho and his people were showing the finger to the so called dead and organised religions. Mr. R and his Meera’s are showing the finger from both hands to the main stream organisation.

    We will have fun in the hell, at least celebration is there and your clean heaven with swimming pool with boring and artificial saints looking for the Apsaras, ex. Soviet beauties”
    Russian belt countries are trying their best to catch up with the European fashion trends of early 80′s. One was not to have the dog but a personal guru.

    Logic wise it makes sense, but content wise , it is like in the long distance Indian trains. Slum boys enter the trains at every halt to fetch the empty mineral water bottles and than they fill them with tap water, seal them with glue and sell to the gullible at 10 Rupees per bottle, there good willingness lies in the fact that real one cost Rupees 15.

    For this reason one listens the instructions,” Crush the bottles after the use and when you buy new one, check the seal.

    But those are adamant to beat the common sense,…. to create the seal of virginity , it takes local anesthesia and just 450 Euros!

  578. shantam prem says:

    Some Mr. Someone has written-
    You have not a clue who I am, where I am, where I shall go, what I shall do, and lastly whether I am or not at all.

    from my side
    No comments!

    why always to be sarcastic.

  579. Kranti says:

    But Shantam Osho is different.. He was what He was and his people had always been sharper as long they were relating to Osho directly

    I am not putting Rajneesh and Meera in that category.. Both seem to be just reactionaries and they dont seem to respond.. Atleast Harri Om and Abha discuss – albeit in their own way without revealing identities or mixing up identities..

  580. Kranti says:

    Is there a good RSS feed for news from the world of sannyasins?

  581. meera says:

    thanks shantam

    for GETTING My POINT ;-)

  582. Kranti says:

    Which point Meera ? FINGER pointing to the MOON?

  583. meera says:

    Kranti…are you shantam??!!!

    so you cannot have the same viewpoint…

    (may be I´m talking about a G-point gggg)?!

    and there is no point
    in
    explaining to a blind man
    what LIGHT IS

    DON´T LOOK AT THE FINGER
    LOOK AT THE MOON

  584. meera says:

    KRANTI

    have you ever been in the presence of

    THE MASTER?!

    since when are you a sannyasin.. may I ask

  585. Shanti says:

    Meera… you sounded so sweet for a short while!
    why did you come back with your patronizing attitude… is it too much to be living in germany?

  586. Kranti says:

    Not really Meera.. Only once i sat near a supposed to be enlightened master..Didnt feel any presence and all.. I used to feel termondous pain that i couldnt be with osho when he was in body..But these are things which happen.. what can i do? Now the more i understand about inner silnce and absense of a person as such there is a relaxation..But at a conceptual level.. In short long ( deep ) way to go

  587. Kranti says:

    Ah.. I took sanyas some 8 or 9 years back and have been in love with Osho for 15 years plus.. does that make me eligible to discuss things with you and Rajneesh , Meera?

  588. Kranti says:

    G-point is Great point or something more esoteric?

  589. shantam prem says:

    As i understand the electric brackets around Osho’s people have been drawn.
    On one side will remain J&A Co. (Jayesh and Amrito) , on another extreme will be R&M(Rajneesh and Meera) Co.
    in between is the sanity, sensitivity, humility and laughter of His people.
    As a matter of fact any one who leans on these two extremes may create nauseating feeling in many. At least i feel like this.

  590. Kranti says:

    So Shantam we are creating a middle group? We will make Anthony our master of middle way ..

  591. Kranti says:

    Master Anthony..Please bless us wih few ‘quotes’.. Frank can say a few poems ..and we can celebrate

    And Oshobob is not showing willingness to take us through that small path to china which he promised..

  592. Kranti says:

    Shantam you forgot about the Oshodhara…Which side you will put them?

  593. shantam prem says:

    Meera, this is a serious question without any tone of sarcism.
    I presume, after Osho may be you were with many other masters or enlightend people, real or so called is not the point.
    Now you are with rajneesh, again it is not a question of judgement.

    My question is what is this attraction in the human heart to search for a master?
    In your case, was your life a bit empty without rajneesh or life was not empty but like this famous sannyas song,” you bring song in my life.”

    I hope you don’t mind to answer.

    with love
    shantam

  594. shantam prem says:

    Kranti, somehow J&A or R&M, i feel like part of my inner family. They are the two extremes, people in inbetween are simple seekers like most of us.

    Oshodhara…..???

    MAy be they are like the by product of that condom which was left in the garbage bin but still something “divine” grew out of it. Indian mythology has so many stories like this.

  595. Kranti says:

    I dont have anything against them as a separate spiritual group having enlightenment courses and certificates , standard steps , Trivir , Four Vir etc etc.. Whatever it is i dont see any Osho in them..Thats what frustrates me.. Osho was / is an alive presence ..loose , flowing .. nothing static or conditioned .. i struggle for words and feel ashamed to try to define Osho …. What is the need for converting such a beautiful Osho in to a organized and standard system..They could have done that with any other name..

  596. meera says:

    beloved sannyasins lovers and friends

    to answer your questions..

    1. shanti .. YES.. germany is driving me mad….

    2.one side A&J they are the politicians

    and there is a meera and her krishna
    with all gopis and devotees

    no shantam
    besides osho I never had any other master

    as a matter of fact
    i became a master in my own right

    and I wish to meet other masters
    to have a community of masters…

    rajneesh is an old friend
    whom I know for many lifes…

    according to my vision HE
    is doing the right thing
    letting CELEBRATION
    continue all over the world…

    and HIS CELEBRATIONS
    are ecstatic..

    just try and SEE

    he is in India now you can join him very easy….

    and Kranti .. there is nothing to discuss..
    it is as it is….

  598. Kranti says:

    ” and I wish to meet other masters
    to have a community of masters ”

    O dear Meera! .. you missed Maitreya…he also requested for such a thing ( masters club ) in one of the threads few months ago.. may be you got company

    Were you serious about knowing Rajneesh in previous lives.. I am jealous.. I cant even remember what happened last year

  599. Kranti says:

    Cant see youtube in office.. Will go home and see after an hour or so..

  600. shantam prem says:

    Meera, I am not in India and when i am in my home country i like to join 1.2 billion people, in their joy and suffering, in their struggle and strength.

    and you are the master in your own right and i am the ordinary Osho seeker, who dreams to marry this time an enlightened woman so that she learns the art of simplicity by ironing my clothes and cooking the food.
    I am too egoist to have just the sex doll, my woman must have ” that” too. May be you can find out, in which life we have met before.

  601. meera says:

    >Kranti

    mediocre people are destroying the planet…
    out of
    ignorance
    greed
    possessiveness
    will to power

    a few enlightenend people here and there can´t do much…

    the INTELLIGENZIA
    of the whole planet
    must unite…
    only then
    we can achieve a
    QUANTUM LEAP in consciousness..

    this is OSHO`s vision

    ´change this world into a paradies´

  602. meera says:

    shantam..where are you at present..?
    so I can google
    a nice female slave for you…

    no need for her to be enlightened…

    just ironing your shirts
    a mediocre mind will do,,

    hope you are not in Germany
    ..very few woman know
    how to cook nowadays..
    all fast food…

    actually do you believe
    that you are an incarnation of god?
    hahaa..good beliefes you are carrying…

    you don´t belong to the chosen few..
    who met in Tibet 700 years ago???

  603. meera says:

    thanks god rajneesh
    is topless
    no need for ironing shirts hahahaha

  604. shantam prem says:

    it seems we need to expand the defination of borderline cases.

    “actually do you believe
    that you are an incarnation of god?
    hahaa..good beliefes you are carrying…

    you don´t belong to the chosen few..
    who met in Tibet 700 years ago??? ”

    Such hallucinations i don’t even wish to my foes.

    I am one of those choosen few who is sharing the earth with other 6.5 billion choosen fews, sinner and the sages, from hookers to the masters.

    is it not a blessing!!

  605. shantam prem says:

    just ironing your shirts
    a mediocre mind will do,,

    May be ironing a shirt is a no mind’s work. To repeat borrowed sermons as one’s own is a work of highly mediocre mind.

    I am in Germany and women i know, know how to cook the steak and to make pumpkin soup with cream.

  606. meera says:

    ahh shantam
    you have a woman slave lol
    and you are a non.veg..
    punjabi i suppose

    I don´t know how long you sat at Oshos feet

    but many times he told us
    that he was a master in tibet
    700 years ago
    and that his choosen people
    who stayed with im that time
    are reborn …
    and joined him…

    so you are not a hindu by birth..
    you don´t carry all these hallucinations
    of hindureligion..

    you are Guru Nanak

    my mom is ironing shirts everday
    she enjoys it…as a meditation…

    the masses are never the choosen few….

    wonder what you understood from osho…

    here a nice video .. made in India.. CELEBRATION

    that he was a master in tibet
    700 years ago
    and that his choosen people
    who stayed with im that time
    are reborn …
    and joined him…

    If he did not tell like this, you and your friend would have been in North Korea¨, seven hundred years ago.

    He mentioned about some party and few loud children jump up, how they can remain behind, yes, we were in that party!
    Before that your new tribe was also at the dining table of jesus’s last supper.

    the masses are never the chosen few….

    When i see the actions of chosen few, i prefer to be with the masses. the farm labourer, the construction worker, even the cleaning woman in my flat in Poona seems to be more pious and siren than these highly ambitious and fanatically inclined people, who are treating the word enlightenment as a bot ex for their lethargic soul.

    And yes.. i am non vegetarian by choice, and prefer those meat which are forbidden by religious bigots.

    wonder what you understood from osho…

    one thing i have definitely understand from Osho and that is not to exploit any one in the name of religion spirituality and meditation.
    Simple thing is by turning passion into profession makes one callgirl/boy.
    and it is not just about money, to get a certain juice of self gratification is the same thing.

    But as i know the ambitious people who came in contact with Osho,they will not hesitate to say, ” No No.. we are doing this all because of compassion.”

    Therefore again i prefer the masses than the choosen few. Choosen few may use human suffering as a tool for his fucking enlightenment trip, on the contrary a man from the masses may simply help for no reward feeling.

    you go into lidl.
    the packaging on the products is almost identical to the world famous brand.
    you look close…
    not quite the same,nor the taste…
    ah well….it`s cheap and anyway,you are hungry and life here in babylon-west is hard already.
    you buy the rajneesh curry sauce.
    it`s not convincing,it`s kind of punjabi with too much oil floating on top, but it smells vaguely of india.
    you buy it.
    you have reached enlidlment.

    you go to pune resort.
    you are little too brown.
    you like devotional singalongs.
    and maybe a giggle with a neo-hippy chick.
    at home ,you like pictures of dead guys with beards on your wall.
    suddenly,you are in trouble.
    you get shoved out of the gate,by some sepoy sannyasins.
    you realise that you need enwhitenment.

    I am in Germany and women i know, know how to cook the steak and to make pumpkin soup with cream.

    ahh shantam
    you have a woman slave lol

    Don’t you see Meera, you are demeaning the half of the world population.

    When Meera will be Ma Meera, she will also cook for Swami Ror S.

    And my feeling is when a woman cooks for a real or so called master, she does not win brownies. Her ego is already puffed by serving the most powerful men in his catagory of profession.

    Just cooking for normal human beings….what a nice world we are living.( when the other half clean the dishes afterwards).

    my mom is ironing shirts everday
    she enjoys it…as a meditation…

    convey my greetings to her and please don’t force her to join the meditaion camps of your new found companion. I know she will not like this.

    We’ve never been separate.

    Only 700 years, compared to eternity.
    Such a short time.
    Poor Meera.

  618. prem bubbie says:

    Hey Meera, I got to see some of your enlightened swami rajneesh videos. I couldn’t help but notice some of those comfy chairs he was sitting on. Does anyone know if Amrito and Jayboy auctioned off any of Osho’s comfy chairs? I think sw. rajneesh must have picked them up on E-Bay auctions!!!!! Now who’s mimicking who? Even that phony graying beard of his!!! Sheela supposedly was spiking the drinks of the homeless to keep them docile, how about someone spiking sw. rajneesh’s drinks with some anti-schizo drugs to get him “whole” again. Meera, this is a job made just for you!!! Smile smile smile

  619. prem bubbie says:

    Garmino, When did you move from eugene? Have you been in town the last 5 years or so? Just curious, this place isn’t what it used to be, too much meth and other drugs going around. I’m looking to move out of town in the next few months. I had some friends who lived in Santa Cruz, 2 of them sannyasins who now live in Marin County, Ma Puja and Sw. Jinesh and a friend who not too long ago left his body, from cancer, he lived outside cottage grove,oregon until 2 years ago. Nice hippie town Santa Cruz Bubbs

  620. Harri Om says:

    Kranti has come up with a gem of a statement: the space for people to walk their own path. This is perfectly good. Of course my view is that Jayesh and Amrito are very much playing guru behind the scenes. You just have to get a little involved to find this out. Also the place is run with a vice like control. You just have to work at the resort for a little while to find this out. It is also argued that the quality of service and disregard to basic health and hygiene standards is also blatantly lacking. Aside from this it has the basic ingredients for what you propose. So as a concept if what is offered is actually what is proposed, the idea appears sound. It caters for a certain mindset of seeker that equates with Western individualistic spiritualism. Whatever is the original Osho ashram space should be given back to the Osho collective – that includes the above concept, and so much more. Jayesh and Amrito can have their pyramid and flash hotel, though one thing is for sure, you will not catch me anywhere near there. If you think there is space there for you to walk your path than I will not object, so long as the original Osho ashram space is not interfered with. I am not a mathematician, so whether it is 6 acres or whatever is no concern to me. Maybe an intelligent person can learn from their disastrous attempt, but not as an enforced encroachment on the original Osho ashram space – that was left to all his people. Osho Shailendra is a lunatic. Swami Rajneesh is not. Jayesh and Amrito are lunatics. Prem Abhay is not. Osho Shailendra’s path is wet like a swamp. Jayesh and Amrito’s path is dry like the desert. These are your extremes. They also have no element of authenticity, and therefore can assist noone in their endeavours to understand themselves.

  621. garimo says:

    Prem Bubbie,
    I’ve visited Eugene over the years, I have a brother with a farm near Veneta. But I haven’t really spent much time in Eugene.

    Everything changes. Santa Cruz isn’t what it was either. Before the ’89 earthquake it really was a fun villiage. Now that it’s been rebuilt, it’s way bigger and has turned into everywhere else. In the 80′s it was a great place to start a new life, but now sounds like it’s as hard here as anywhere else.
    Puja & Jinesh are very sweet. I haven’t seen them in years. I’m a bit of a hermit these days and don’t have a whole lot of trust for sannyas as a community/family any more and keep a distance. I have a few close sannyasin friends but don’t find my needs for comfort and acceptance met by hanging with the sangha. Now & then I’ll play online… -g

  622. prem bubbie says:

    Garimo, We are a lot alike, with regards to the hermit way of life and only having a few sannyas friends. I moved here, well actually first to a farm outside Cottage Grove over 16 years ago, from new york. I had worked at a bio-dynamic farm in upstate n.y. I don’t know if you know what a Bio-dynamic farm is, but I left there to live and work on another farm out here. That lasted 6 months and except for a try at an organic dairy farm in northern vermont(one month) and a couple of extended side trips to hawaii, i’ve been here since. Nice to hear that you know both puja and jinesh- long time friends- 26 years from n.y.c.– in and out of touch with them over the years- distance, I guess. I tried to find a rural life after the ranch fell and kind of used that as a gold standard to compare other places with. Not surprisingly, nothing compares to the ranch, whether that sounds foolish, so be be it. None of the farms had such a complete way of life and living.. Work your ass off then party like its 1999!!!! Yahoo!!! oh well- I lived it to the fullest. Hope to one day meet you bubbs

  623. Kranti says:

    Anand

    Yes.. I write all the stuff from office..I do have time to
    post all the messages..Now i have resigned my job and in notice period..So even easier..

  624. Kranti says:

    Harri Om..thanks for a very nice post

    ” It caters for a certain mindset of seeker that equates with Western individualistic spiritualism. Whatever is the original Osho ashram space should be given back to the Osho collective ”

    I do agree with you that the balance is more towards Western individualistic spiritualism and not towards original Osho ashram …

    But I have a feeling it is bound to be so since the master has left the body.. I dont see the possibility of a ‘ orginal Osho ashram ‘ kind of situation..Infact any effort to create / maintain such a space without the master in body can be dangerous.. The master is not there to keep the teaching flowing and a religion can easily be born

    If you look deeply into a oshodhara kind of set up this is what happned.. think you also agree with me on this.. However i do agree with you that there can be little more space for heart ..I am totally with you on that

  625. Kranti says:

    Prem Bubbie / Garimo

    ” Garimo, We are a lot alike, with regards to the hermit way of life and only having a few sannyas friends”

    I would like to ask you a question which is from my heart

    I know people who lived with Osho when he was in body and who danced and celebrated totally can have a fulfilling life now ..having kind of seen it all

    People like me who has just tasted little bit of what you guy experienced find there is a big gap ..to live the remaining part.. and find no way out

    Infact when Shantam argues for changes in PUNE his is what mostly he means…

    But I also realize things can never be the same without the master and it is not possible to recreate the magic..

    But i feel i need to be in touch with sannyasins all the time to relate with life more deeply and lead a fulfilling life..When i think of Osho sannyasins i have tears in my eyes as i see Osho in them.. I am making all efforts to put myself in such a environment

    In that context please share with me how you managed to live with very few sannayasins and how the ‘ relating ‘ aspect was fulfilled?

    Will be greatful if you share.. Trust everyone here will love to share such deeper aspects of relating with fellow Osho sannayasins..

  626. garimo says:

    Kranti,
    I think confusion really comes through in your question/statment.
    I can’t say I clearly understand what you’re asking.
    Would you care to elaborate a bit more on what you’re asking?

  627. meera says:

    wow….. Hari Om TAT SAT… this is TRUTH

    yes shanti Germany is killing me
    thats why YOU
    escaped from Germany
    you know what its like to be here….

    Shantam you don´t need to be jealous
    with a half naked indian sannyasin…
    you indians are all very jealous…

    just drop your ironed shirt
    and start walking around in a lunghi

    and let your beard and hair grow

    instead of selling predicitions
    to foolish people
    who BELIEVE in foolish stars
    making a living out of this
    foolish business
    and live on a non-veg diet in germany
    is not much of a vision
    according to OUR Master

    OSHO was not a hunky -punky man…

  628. Kranti says:

    Garimo

    Sorry about it.. I was kind of struggling to put in words

    What i am trying to say is living with / around fellow sannyasins and relating to them on daily life is very fulfilling.. So after tasting the ‘ celebrative ‘ climate around Osho , when you settle down again and live in an environment where there are not many sannyaisns to relate with , what you feel about it ?

    Prem Bubbie told me that he hasn’t lived around sannyasins for a long time and he may be willing to move to an area where sannyasins live.. Do you feel in a similar way ?

    ( Assuming what Prem Bubbie said as ” ” Garimo, We are a lot alike, with regards to the hermit way of life and only having a few sannyas friends” is right )

    And i am also trying to look at this in the context of people who lived with Osho and who have not and the inner longing to relate with fellow sannyasins..

  629. Kranti says:

    Infact , Garimo I almost got the answer from Prem Bubbie in the last line of his post which I didnt notice earlier

    ” Not surprisingly, nothing compares to the ranch, whether that sounds foolish, so be be it. None of the farms had such a complete way of life and living.. “

  630. Kranti says:

    Ah! Thus spake Meera !!

    ” just drop your ironed shirt
    and start walking around in a lunghi

    and let your beard and hair grow ”

    Thats it.. Simple.. Guys

    Why the hell we are all struglling???

    Frank.. what you think about this solution?

  631. Kranti says:

    Garimo / Prem Bubbie

    I read the whole thing again and caught this point also from your post

    ” don’t have a whole lot of trust for sannyas as a community/family any more and keep a distance. I have a few close sannyasin friends but don’t find my needs for comfort and acceptance met by hanging with the sangha. Now & then I’ll play online”

    So I think i pretty much understand your ( Garimo / Prem Bubbie ) individual view points..though i still would like others to share similar views about ‘ relating with sannyasins ‘

  632. meera says:

    moving somewhere where sannyasins live………..hmmmmm

    Poona resort
    is not a home …a commune…
    but a hotel..
    where you cannot live
    and pay for cheap entertainment….

    nobody can take roots there..
    it belongs all to A&J

    before osho left his body
    he told us to go back to our countries
    and create a commune there…..

    in 2003
    when I returned for the last time from poona
    on the first of April
    I found the ´new place´in Germany
    just one month later on the 1rst of May ..
    labor day..
    Mother Mary Day
    MayQueen

    though the City of the 3 kings Cologne
    is the second biggest sannyasin gathering
    besides Poona..
    I didn´t find any sannyasin
    whocould join ´the vision´
    ´meera creative arts´…

    for the INTELLIGENZIA

    the huge place which I got…
    1700sqm interior 1200 sqm garden..
    just 5 min underground tram from http://www.oshouta.de
    which is a therapieplace for expensive foolish thearpies
    very small
    compared to MY Space

    now.. what to do..??!!
    if all Germans are stoneheads..
    white sheep ..
    sitting in the coziness of the crowd..
    osho´s place .. eating …
    working for taxmoney…
    and paying expensive foolish therapies
    to the oshopriesthood………..

    leading nowhere ..but to more dependency….

    nothing creative with that…………

    till today I couln´t find any
    REBELLIOUS SPIRIT
    who got ´
    THE VISION the DREAM ..of Osho

    Rajneesh has the strenght of a rose…
    he is not fit to live and work in a beer drinking meat eating barbarious society..like this one…

    even for me ..after having spent 10 years in India..
    being a vegetarian..
    it is very difficult to stand it all by myself…

    all these sannysins
    are part of the masses..
    eating drinking being merry…

    going to Poona A&J resort..same thing
    eating drinking being merry..
    coming back ..
    working hard under the control of these industrial countries..
    paying half of their sallary for taxmoney
    to purchays more scientific warmaterial
    already there are 700 times more nuclear weapons to destroy the world..
    one time is enough..
    and now they are experimenting
    with the money which they suck from hardworking people to develope
    ´deathrays´
    which are far more easy to sent anywhere….
    which kill everything which is alive……..

    Osho´s vision is
    that the INTELLIGENZIA of this world
    should get toghether
    and create a paradies on earth…

    viola..
    I got the place..
    where is the western Intelligenzia????!!

    and honest to god
    I don´t believe that any german sannyasin
    or socalled sannyasin is gonna make it…

    we need indian sannyasins
    who can cope with this reality here..
    and slowly people here
    will change..
    otherwise we are lost
    with all this destructive technology
    which we cannot control
    unless we become meditators…

  633. shantam prem says:

    Infact when Shantam argues for changes in PUNE his is what mostly he means…

    Again i try to say it in nut shell, let Poona be a place where people choose their own style, own way from the vast inventory of Osho.
    Osho has left a vast sky, it can ammodate all kind of spiritual paths and traditions.
    For example, let Milarepa kind of music and bollywood beats stay together, one day like this another like this.

    People choose with their heart, where they want to eat today, what meditation attracts them most and with whom they want to spend the life after white robe!

    If you are smart ass than the Master, do all kind of changes but in your personal set up.
    Poona remains Poona as it was during His life time.
    If just in 20 years you think programme and structue developed by Osho has gone out of time, than don’t talk about Him as a visionary master.

    “But I also realize things can never be the same without the master and it is not possible to recreate the magic.”

    It is one of the biggest myth around Osho.
    If magic was not possible, Osho would have definitely left a successor, a team Coach.

    Magic is possible if the MIND of the middlemen is set aside. When ashram is a a collective endeavour of all His people, flowers will shower. Hundred thousands will leave their legacies for the ashram, if the middlemen, the modern priests take a bit back seat,

    PS- how so ever the ashram changes, one thing i will support fully and that is a nice tradition ” enlightened people stay OUT, but surely send your people IN”

  634. Kranti says:

    Thanks for a wonderful post Meera

    I understand the longing behind the words..

    Nice to know you got the space.. People will come..Dont worry

    I am planning to buy a very small place in remote place in India and start working on a home / garden and in future if all goes well just have a place to welcome sannyasins to visit / sit around / share..the place is surrounded by quite a few tourist spots with 45 / 60 minutes drive

    Nothing much as of now…It will take years as the place is very romote..

    Only time will tell

  635. Kranti says:

    Shantam.. Even before things started changing you put Banning rule 1 .”enlightened people stay OUT’

  636. Kranti says:

    ” 1700sqm interior 1200 sqm garden..”

    Wish we can shift that kind of place to India.. May be a exchnage is possible Meera if you really love India

  637. Kranti says:

    Meera I saw the website ” http://www.oshouta.de

    whatever it is one thing I am sure ..

    HIS people are the most beautiful people on earth..

  638. shantam prem says:

    For every successful endeavour one needs a combination of tradition and modernity, like knitting a pullover. roots and wings are important not just for individuals but civilisations and institutions too.

    Ashram is a place where one comes to learn/unlearn from the energy of Osho, and from the attraction/friction among the people.

    If you have already attained what your soul was hankering, go under the sky, why to go on possessing a bed at the operation theater.
    Compared to other traditions, Osho has spoken so much about enlightenment in such juicy way that every child, everyday in the bathroom checks, is he/she ready for making babies!

    So ashram is basically a place for seekers but not for those who have found it.

    but the population of such enlightened beings is growing like rabbits so as a matter of middle way, one can say that GuruPurnima days in July, ashram has the open door policy. These days, let dark soul come and Arial washed souls too.

  639. shantam prem says:

    Meera,
    I don’t sell predictions. Just the psychological tendancies, and this too for more as a sharing than as a profession.
    for example in your chart, transiting Neptune is in the same element as your Natel Jupiter for last few years.
    (your data from facebook. Sweet,sour and sharp Gemini)

    Both these planets love expansion…
    More more more……..ya ya ya .. i got it got it got it.
    with this comes the missionary attitude too as a shadow side
    My God..why others are not getting it… G spot every one has and still people are unaware.. sleepy beings kind of expressions….
    devotion, surrunder and Bible Thumping are few of the key words.

    In my chart, Uranus is making conjunction with Jupiter.

    From this point onwards i started writing at sannyasnews and changed my dependence with the ashram to the passion for the ashram.
    and this conjunction is happening in the 8th house of my horoscope, which is a house of sex, death, past and future, you can see most of my posts have the words from this branch. Uranus like to provoke and vernacular expressions do this work quite efficiently…

    But predictions…. nobody knows what will happen next moment. Even when the mobile battery is full still mobile can fall from the hands and stop working.

    The another beauty with astrology is that everybody has their opinion about this subject. without going into the depth of a subject, people get the right to pronunce judgements.

    Kranti, for me that’s just sentimental hogwash, I’m afraid.

    In my experience, sannyasins have been a mixture:
    Some of the best and some of the worst people I’ve ever encountered. And a whole load somewhere between the two extremes.

    You think this is something ‘beautiful’, that any old Tom, Dick or Hari can make their silly pronouncements based on some superficial non-knowledge they’ve picked up from other superficial non-knowers?!

    Bah, humbug, I say!

    “A little learning is a dangerous thing.

    Meera, I think the basic problem is that people don’t want to meditate. I actually could never understand why people hang around Osho who have zero interest in self growth. As you said, just eating drinking being merry. I find it absurd.

    But so is the reality. Indian friends from my observation have the culture of meditation in their dna and have more patience, so without them I don’t think meditation will survive for long in the West.

    I am myself kinda giving up on sannyasins altogether. It is nice to meet and rejoice, but then separate and meditate on m own (or with close few).

    I also think that a new establishment will only be successful if there are spiritually developed people behind it. People are looking for love and love cannot be faked. Hence, slowly things will just work out.

    Meera

    Thank you very much for the Invitation..

    I am very much Indian..that too ‘ Dosa ‘ eating south indian.. People really get surprised to see a south indian as Osho sannyasin as it is a conservative society..But now things have chaged.. Thanks to the efforts of some beautiful people..

    One SWami from whom I took sannyas is Swami Mohan Bharti.. He was one of the earliest diciples of Osho..

    Yes.. it is my desire to have a small place where we can have sannyas gathering..But my financial conditions never allowed me freedom to do anything like that.. I am thinking of creating very small place few years down the line.. It is still a dream.

  650. Shanti says:

    I think things are softening up. harri om made a short comment… thanks. Meera finally took her medication and is compensated… thanks.

    garimo and prem bubbie are actually neighbors…
    Kranti is Indian.. well, we all knew that!!
    shantam is a sweety…
    And frank is back and have some magic in hos underpants… all nice and well….anand. you were right

  651. meera says:

    and SHANTI

    what about HER??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!

    is she one of the counselors
    rapist- therapists?????!!!

    from where areYOU from Shanti??
    and what brought you to Barecelona???

    your therapy business?

    I suggest for you medicine and meditation

    no need for therapists priests anymore,,,,,

    chetna
    you are very right

    people don´t want to meditate…

    we need certainly indians here
    who can meditate

    all these western therapists
    just sucking peoples money.. for nothing…

  652. Shanti says:

    Meera… you are just repeating Rajneesh. I am not a therapist I am a designer. i am spanish, I live in Barcelona.
    What is all that about against the therapists?
    They were instructed and placed there by Osho. It was his dream to mix therapy and meditation.

    Anthony asked rajneesh how many Osho therapies he had gone through… unless he was speaking about something he did not know about. And he did not answer. why? because he never did any groups.

    I did many groups my self and they were immensely helpful and my own growth and awareness.
    Actually i think you should do some… but probably they would not allow you… groups are not for psychotics.

  653. Anand says:

    In general this is quite an interesting thread. And now with the swami rajneesh followers quiet for a few days, even peaceful, except for the foul and agressive language of Meera, who obviously got frustrated in Germany. She should join Dynamic Meditation at Osho Uta. It is actually a great place with wonderful people, but she sits on such a huge ego, which probably does not fit through the entrance door…. I like Shantis position and writings, good she came.

  654. meera says:

    OSHODHARA:

    Osho had a vision.

    He said,

    “21st century can be either of ‘Buddha’ or ‘Yuddha’ (War).
    If we have 10,000 enlightened people,
    we can avoid ‘Yuddha’ and attain ‘Buddha’”.

    Oshodhara has taken that

    responsibility to
    create

    10000 “ZORBA THE BUDDHA”

    and I want your support to fulfill Osho’s dream,
    and make 21st Century an era of Buddha.

  655. Kranti says:

    Shanti

    Youa re right.. i also asked rajneesh why he is so much against therapists.. he gave a very confusing reply

    I tried to search for that reply in the earliers threads but couldnt find it ..So i recollect and state here..

    Initially he said there is no need for any therapy as it makes you dependent and only meditation is enough..

    Later on he said he is not against therapies but only against therapists making money out of that..

    When i asked him about one video where he said there is no need for any meditation i asked him why he is against meditation.. he said he is not against meditation and that he was joking with someone

    But later i watched that video and he sounded more like ‘ only dancing is enough ‘ and you can reach the peak state through number of methods and some such method is meditation..

    I am aware Osho also contradicted and spoke according to context ..So i dont mind hearing contradictions

    But if he is against therapy and against meditations and not interested in any methods then he has moved away from Osho as Osho used all possible devices and He was not against anything

  656. Kranti says:

    My GOD! Meera.. thats is a shocker

    I have been around in this forum for last 6 months or so but i have not seen anyone liking Oshodhara and asking for their support.. What happened to you?

    They have a school for children where you pass exams and get enlightenment certificate..

    And you talk as though you can create enlightened people using some machine.. Mass production with nice packaging to go with ..You can even buy a few enlightened people to walk aroud your house for a monthly fee so they will create good climate and vibe

    At that rate we will have a YUDDHA between all the BUDDHAS created from factory

  657. Kranti says:

    Meera that mysticvillage is a commune with residential property under development or only a center for participating various programs ???

    I couldnt understand the language and desciptions are vague ..

    May be you can think of exchanging your place for something like that .. So we all will buy property from you ( at affordable prices ) and settle down ..we can create the 10000 buddhas there

  658. frank says:

    come on girls.
    i dont mind a couple of guys beating six sorts of shit out of each other on religious grounds,that`s pretty standard fare on this planet.
    but…call me old fashioned if you like,but there`s something about a nail-scratching,hair-pulling catfight about cosmic consciousness that just doesn`t do it for me.

    meera`s not psychotic,she`s just parroting the same “700 years in tibet” mumbo-jumbo that osho came up with.
    hitler was an agent of ashoka`s nine esoteric society
    remember that one?
    hehe
    bonkers.
    but so were many of the so-called therapies and therapists of the neo-jackass world.

    fact is.humans are bonkers.
    i`m just getting used to it.
    even like it.

    dont let people like anthony fool you into believing in some perfectly-diagnosed list of mental illnesses.
    he`s got
    psychotics
    schizoids
    “normal”neurotics
    narcissists etc.
    all neatly sown up.

    in fact all the labels that any “normal” psychtherapist would have classified osho with.

    and on the other side the asstrologers.
    using a several thousand year old map of the universe to tell you about uranus etc.

    i love it.

    love life laughter and lidl.

    oshofrank

  659. Kranti says:

    ” in fact all the labels that any “normal” psychtherapist would have classified osho with.”

    thats a great point..apllication of logic to suit the requirement.. If they can dscribe Osho like that then they can categorize into any sort of mental illness..

    there is only one mental illness..that is believing that there is a individual bonker sitting there and he needs to be cured..

  660. amrito says:

    ahhhhh!!!

    rajneesh forces conjoin with Osho Dhara……

    urghhh….

    Meera you said:

    “Rajneesh has the strenght of a rose…
    he is not fit to live and work in a beer drinking meat eating barbarious society..like this one”…

    So drinking beer and having chicken wings make me a barbarian??

    And rajneesh don;t do this so he’s a pretty “holy” guy??

    I smell a filthy religion based on puritinism being born !!!

    ahhh, Osho what would you say now??!!

    -Amrito

  661. Kranti says:

    Frank..Have you seen anyone other than Meera in this forum thinking Oshodhara is there to save the earth by producing Buddhas from their factory ? Large scale production?

  662. frank says:

    chetna says:
    “i could never understand why people hung around osho with zero interest in growth”

    well,try:

    power
    prestige
    sex
    kudos
    foreign travel
    feeling superior to “the masses”
    the pleasures of the chosen few
    it`s nice to feel important
    drugs
    a nice uniform
    and maybe a little love
    and a ride in a rolls-royce
    ???

    why not?

  663. frank says:

    kranti,
    what is oshodhaba?
    another dodgy curry outlet run by greasy punjabis or something?

  664. Kranti says:

    ” rajneesh forces conjoin with Osho Dhara”

    Unimaginable… Hope they dont come together before we find another alternative planet to live in..( We have to push Richard Branson to move ahead on that Virgin Galactic project quickly )

  665. Kranti says:

    “oshodhaba”

    This should have been the name..they got the title as well as recepies wrong ..

  666. meera says:

    oshodhara I just discovered because of you people..just today for the first time…

    Osho talked about 10000 Buddhas sitting in Buddhahall

    ( BUDDHAS
    ARE ENLIGHTENED BEINGS)

    and he once said

    ´ 200 enlightened people are enough
    to change this earth into a paradies..´

    then he gave other figures for the sizes of communes

    the biggest should not be more then 50000 members
    the smallest not less then 5000

    Kranti
    mysticvillage offers are only on request..
    basically it is meant to become a commune..
    porperties are for sale
    a property with house will cost you aprox
    1 lakh rupees(only)

    according to my vision
    MYSTICVILLAGE
    will stretch out in the mulchilake valley
    and reach to the biggest possible size of
    50000 communemembers

    here in Germany
    I want a small commune of 5000 members..
    can be only virtual…
    artists ..musicians painters.. scientists,
    and rich people like investors.. bankers financeers…etc…

    .to support mysticvillage with technology

    ´unless you give India
    its dignity back..
    the whole world
    CANNOT recover´

  667. Kranti says:

    Unbelievable price Meera..i dont see phone number there ..is there a way to contact these guys ?

  668. frank says:

    it had to happen.

    a lunghi

    “We need a new kind of human being

    the wings of knowledge, science, technology,

    in a deep synchronicity,
    in a deep togetherness,
    in accord and harmony,
    then only man is complete,
    total.”

  671. Shanti says:

    My god frank .. lets´s just make it really weird!

    Red lunghi, bright green Oshodhara hat, no shirt. ( optional is a handkerchief on your head). Official look for all disciples of the new oshodhara-rajneesh cult.

    Holy book: “tears of the misfit bozzo”.

    Only allowed meditation: walking slowly moving the hands and arms, in a funny way like cutting the air at waist length.

    Only allowed therapy ( all therapists are after your money, so this one is free) Cutting your genitalia off… in a zen way.

    The other therapy is to get trashed, with offensive remarks about your partner, for your own good, in a very Zen way… If you do not like it, them more ZEN for you!!

    If you resist… we send you master meera… very ZEN… also to wake you up with abusive language and all… and straight from fatherland.

    Official salute: hail rajneesh ( or oshodhara)

    The goal: 3·000.000.000.000 enlightened people to save the universe ( the earth is not enough)

    Official movie ( to get inspirational ). “The life of brian” by Monty python.

    Area of social concern: water sanitation

    -… and At the end, a nice certificate that state that you are the only self realized man on earth at the moment

    … and you can become a master and start your own business if you come from a poor family: If you are loaded, like rajneesh you do it for free , but get some ego reward.

    Lets the show start!!!

  672. Kranti says:

    Thanks Meera ..

  673. Kranti says:

    AWESOME Shanti!!!

    Too good

    Just one addition

    You say ” Only allowed meditation: walking slowly moving the hands and arms, in a funny way like cutting the air at waist length”

    Actually there needs to be a give and take.. Oshodhara has created some copy paste meditations from Osho and they would not like to give up.. So one of those mediations may be accepted..

    Anyway they have so many levels of exama that needs to be passed and you need content.. Then the masters will not able to have enough questions to ask in the exam..

  674. Kranti says:

    If ‘No shirt ‘ is applicable for female sannyasins also, then we will have huge followers..We can convert the entire world… surely entire India..

  675. Shanti says:

    mandatory… for everybody!

    he has a strong fan right next to him…so,perhaps he is blown away…

  678. frank says:

    shanti,
    you are right
    as has been noted before,here on jackassnews,
    “there`s no business like osho business….”
    the show must go on…..

    btw.i understand the lunghi is red.
    but what colour are anusrags this year?
    brown again,i suppose…
    oh,it`s just soooo 70s…

    Kranti on Rajneesh:

    Well, confirmation then that this guy Rajneesh hasn’t the slightest, not even the remotest clue what he’s talking about !

    Utterly unfit to wear the shirt (as they say in soccer circles)!

    Whether or not he can even guide Indians, I very much doubt, but he has certainly not a hope with the westerners, not even a prayer!

    How come anyone falls for this obvious jerk?!

  680. Satya Deva says:

    And whoever’s behind the scheme to create some gigantic community, some so-called ‘buddhafield’ needs a serious reality check.

    Utterly and totally bonkers, utterly and totally doomed, would be my prognosis, ladies and gents. Especially if Rajneesh is involved, of course.

    But maybe Frank can enlighten us further (excuse the ‘e’ word), re the astrological aspects surrounding this idea….

  681. Shanti says:

  684. Kranti says:

    Satya Deva

    This is the reply I got from Rajneesh.. Let me know whether my confusion is justified

    ———————————————————————-

    beloved kranti

    firstly…have you read tears of the mystic rose ??

    please note carefully…as is mentioned in my book…
    that osho never walked out of his bedroom ever
    except in his last days he actually walked to the multiversity and announced that there should be
    no more therapies and that therapies should only be available for 3 days and that too lightly…

    he finally suggested that meditation camps be offered on a monthly weekend so that original meditation were valued again versus superficial tharapies

    there is a vast difference between therapies
    and core meditations like dynamic kundalini nadabhrama gourishanker natraj ect ect

    i completely support and insist that osho meditations are scientific and the way inwards…and only offer core osho meditations in all my events and camps…
    remember purely orignal osho meditations only
    nothing more is needed…i insist that all one needs is to go deeper into any of these freely offered core meditations…and then move into meditativeness

    hence there is nothing knows as ‘”doing a meditation”
    these are just outer devices to create an inner state of meditativeness…then living this meditativeness
    in your day to day life…is the only way
    i clarify again…not meditation but meditativeness

    in that particular youtube orgasmic stillnes talk you mention…i was joking and humouring ma vitesha who always jokes with me..it was our joke about meditators

    i do not endorse therapies and particularly the claims of therapists to be the elite…osho therapies are just being misused by therapists who act like they know

    the moment you accet therapy you are clearly defining that you need to add more to yourself…that you are not enough unto yourself hence you need these therapies

    remember you are enough unto yourself
    and one only need to learn the simple knack
    how rediscover what is already hidden within you

    therapists insist that change is necessary
    i insist that no change is necessary just an inner dive
    change is outer change
    transformation is inner tranformation

    transformation is very simple…
    just energy moving vertical upwards…

    change is horizontal and transformation is vertical

    therapists are extorting and charging innocent seekers to make money for their own businesses and profit and are making a business of osho’s work

    this is pure exploitation of innocent seekers by cunning therapists…who are totally unconcious themselves…just watch any therapist and their day to day life and any of their simple action…
    they have become the new age priests

    i am not against therapies…
    just this money exploitation and mis-information
    about the real values of these therapies…

    core osho meditations are more than enough…
    and they are for free and freely available to all

    love to you always rajneesh

    ———————————————————————–

  685. Kranti says:

    “the moment you accet therapy you are clearly defining that you need to add more to yourself…that you are not enough unto yourself hence you need these therapies”

    “therapists are extorting and charging innocent seekers to make money for their own businesses and profit and are making a business of osho’s work”

    ” am not against therapies…

  686. frank says:

    poor old brian rajneesh.
    he`s not the messiah,he`s a very naughty boy.

    definitely not fit to wear the shirt,brian.

  687. Kranti says:

    ‘“the moment you accet therapy you are clearly defining that you need to add more to yourself…that you are not enough unto yourself hence you need these therapies”

    This logic can be applied to meditations also.. I have seen teachers saying nothing is needed ..the moment you try a ( meditation ) method you move away

    Osho always explained meditation as ‘ creating the situation ‘ in which silence can happen not as something which will directly lead you to meditation

    Can we say the same about therapies also ?

    Are therapies always ‘ an addition ‘ ? Then Osho used them effectively?

    His own meditations derive a lot from therapies..Now throwing away therapies means disregarding the source of those meditations..

    Also i also feel meditations can throw someone into spaces which they have not known.. and they may need to someone to hold their hand and assist to move into deeper spaces.. Dont therapists fulfill this role?

    Please let me know what you guys think..

    Perhaps It is time for Anthony to jump in ..

  688. frank says:

    mind you,you hear similar guff,and more,from so-called therapists these days too.

    “getting vertical”
    “osho`s vision in 200 years”
    “the new man”
    “the real man”
    “advanced channeling”
    “transsomatic karmic bardo modules”
    “dna activation”
    “700 years in tibet”
    “cod-dependency”

    etc etc.

    it all makes astrology seem quite practical.
    most people will agree that it can be pretty useful information to know where uranus is.

    and not everybody does,clearly.

  689. Anthony thompson says:

    Well, If you insist Kranti.
    What SW, Rajneesh is saying is simply out of ignorance. osho became known in the west through His therapeutic approach.
    He was the only eastern mystic who saw a place for therapy a s a way to meditation. He never said that it would replace meditation, but it could help you to clear the weeds so that the seeds of meditation could grow.
    Osho helped to change and shape transpersonal psychology. His contribution to contemporary psychology is immense.

    IT is here too long to explain what it actually means.
    What mr. rajneesh ignores is that these experiments, blending western humanistic psychotherapies with eastern mysticism became the base for further developments in humanistic-transpersonal psychologies.

    His ashram and the multiversitybecame the most important psycho-spiritual experiment in counter cultural psychology since the establishment of Esalen Institute in California, as it has been documented in the Spanish book De Esalen Poona. Osho y el camino de la psicología humanista-transpersonal. (“From Esalen to Poona. Osho and the development of humanistic- transpersonal psychology”) By J. C. Saez Editor, Santiago, Chile, by Vikrant A. Sentis.

    As a proof of this we had the pilgrimage to the ashram in Poona of hundreds of the most well known western humanistic psychotherapists and group leaders such as: Will Schutz, the creator of Encounter Groups; Bernard Gunther, bestselling author and creator of Esalen Massage and developer of Sensory Awareness; Richard price, disciple of Fritz Perls, co-founder of Esalen Institute; Leonard Zunnin and Andy Farber from the Neurological and Psychiatric American Board; David Boadella, developer of biosíntesis; John Bell, inventor of Unitive Psychology; Gerda Boyesen, inventor of Biodynamic Psychology; Dr, Yusson, creator of Humaniversity psychology; Thomas Thorbe, developer of the co-dependency work; Dr. Robert Birnbaum, disciple of Perls, Bernie and Carl Rogers, director of Odissey Center; Paul Lowe, founder of the British Association for Humanistic Psychology, Michael Barnett, renowned author and founder of PNP and Community Growth Center; Alexander Everent, developer of the Alfa Training and his disciple Werner Erhard, founder of Est Training; among hundreds of others. The complete list and their perils in Poona can be found in Mr. Sentis book. Some of these people studied under Osho for a while and then went on their way, some others stayed up to this day.

    Si what Mr. Rajneesh is saying is simple stupid and highly uninformed.

  690. frank says:

    big deal,tony.
    you think these snake-oil guys are some kind of gods,or something?

    so the world got better cos these guys shagged their students or what?

    brian is no worse than most of the guys on your list,even if they managed to throw a few convincing -sounding acronyms and cobbled together associations around themselves.

    alfalfa training?my arse.

    and to save you the trouble,
    i`m a semi-schizoid passive-aggresive anally retentive normally borderline neurotic with a malevolent planet in uranus.

  691. Kranti says:

    I am humbled to the core Anthony

    I will print out this and keep seeing daily what the contribution of that man.. Mind boggling

    I am very much interested in knowing further details in this area.. I will mail you as and when i explore further..

  692. meera says:

    Osho became famous because of famous therapists..
    who brought the most advanced skills to Poona

    ´´encounter´ and the like…

    look at the therapies and therapists nowadays…

    all bogus.. just shallow…

    all the geniuses were banned

    already in Oregon from ma sheela…

    whoever contributed something
    ´real ´to the movement
    is BANNED

    what remains is a
    mediocre powergreedy managment
    and ignorant customers…

  693. frank says:

    shouting at people and getting your hands on a few big-titted hippy chicks.

    very advanced skills
    that takes a lot of trainig,for sure.

  694. frank says:

    but,to be fair,they were quick learners.

  695. Kranti says:

    Frank..You surprised me with that..

    You sounded more like Rajneesh delivering the message in Frank style..

    Personally I do agree with Anthony the contributions of most of these guys are very valuable in their own way with limitations of their field of study .. I dont want to discard pshychology / therapies completely..

    Infact my understanding is most of the meditations themselves as a form of therapies ..creating situations for people to move to deeper spaces..Evrything is a technique finally..My understanding may not be accurate..But thats how i feel as of now..

  696. Kranti says:

    Meera seems to agree with the fact that therapies contributed so much earlier..

    Infact she is saying ” Osho became famous because of famous therapists”..that is a big statement

  697. Anthony thompson says:

    Psychology is my field. And yes frank, the world is a much better place because of those men and women who contributed to the evolution of contemporary psychology.

    Part of that contribution was precisely was questioning of the medical model under which it had been working, the vertical relationship, and the development of human potentialities beyond conflict resolution.

    Osho gave contemporary psychology the process of dis- identification with the content of your mind as way out of therapy. But he was clever enough to see that if you teach witnessing of emotional processes to inexperienced people they will repress those processes, rather than dis-identify with them.

    Osho opened the doors to a new way of understanding the work with the human psyche.

    And, as I mentioned, most of the pioneering members of the humanistic psychology movement worked and learned under osho.

    And yes, western culture was changed by the human potential movement. and osho was part of that

    Therapy has played, until today,a fundamental role in the sannyas movement.

    Meera, your ignorance is so big that it is not even worth to answer you. No therapist was ever banned by sheela or the ashram… read a couple of books on the subject and we talk again.. It is almost insolence on your part to repeat things you know nothing about.

  698. Kranti says:

    I will join you guys after an hour..

  699. Anthony thompson says:

    And Frank.. You are funny and all. And I respect your rebellious attitude. But The people you make fun of, changed the way you and me relate to our understanding of our personal psychology processes.

    It is like saying that T: S: Elliot is irrelevant or that Bertrand Russel, is a joke or that the poetry of Poe is meaningless, as far as culture is concerned. Or to say that culture is unimportant.
    If you think so, you would not even be able to use a toothbrush.

  700. Kranti says:

    And thanks Anthony.. I am very keen to know a lot on this subject because it is all good to talk about ultimate enlightenment and all..But what contributes to my well being in daily life also is very important to me.. In that sense i value pshychology / therapies

    I have real life people around me who care a damn about enlightenment but in need of psychological counselling / release of tensions to survive.. thats where i feel these areas are key

  701. meera says:

    osho explained us that therapy only prepares the ground for meditation….

    but THERAPY
    has become a big business esp in the west..
    Psychtherapy…
    psychopharmaca is one of the biggest business.. Psychatric hospitals are growing like mushrooms..
    and they are all overcrowded ..
    and tons of pills are produced for keeping people quiet .. so they can´t move anymore.
    .just helpless customers of the psychiatric ward…

    therapy can prepare the ground for meditation..
    but where is the time and space to meditate?!

    NO TIME NO SPACE

    in poona you don´t want to meditate..
    you are getting ready after you spent whole day at the pool
    for dinner and parties…

    just 3 weeks one can manage
    before one has to rush back through horrible roads .
    .reach the airport and fly off ..
    to continue work…back home
    and continue therapie over there
    . just to avoid being alone..
    the coziness of the crowd….

    this oshoplace in Cologne
    is always packed with people..
    they are all therapie addicts..

    they believe in this center ..
    where the management consists of homosexual leadership
    who sack all the money in their pocket
    which they made in the name of osho
    and maintaining their own private clubs
    somewhere far away
    from this stupid sannyasins and customer crowd
    who is cramping into osho´s place
    in the middle of a noisy city…

    never ever you see this ´management´celebrating on their own parties which are all commercial..
    never you see them celebrating anywhere…
    only their customers are celebrating
    during christian festivals like carnival or new year
    with lots of alcohol getting drunk

  702. Anthony thompson says:

    Meera your comments of pune are out of base. there are more people meditating nowadays than when osho was in the body.
    I can give you the numbers.

    regarding the center in cologne… if people wants to go to therapy groups… who are you to object?

    Another important aspect is the fact that Osho was an avid psychology reader. If you see his talks you will see that he was influenced by Freud, Jung, Reich ( actually dynamic and kundalini are based on reich´s and alexander lowen´s work), Perls, Charles kelley, Charles Brook, Rogers, even Schutz himself.
    I can get you specific quotes where you can see the influence. But agin, it would take too much space.

  703. Shanti says:

    Ok… this got really intellectual. I do not know about psychology more than any ” normally educated” person.
    But my experiences with groups in the ranch, in pune, here in Spain has been very valuable.

    Meera dear. there are things that meditation in itself can not solve… and you can see it in yourself, no matter how much you meditate , still the poison comes out of your mouth.
    The discriminatory remarks about cologne “homosexual” management. and finally your religious conditioning against alcohol. see a bit of therapy would be great for you.

  704. meera says:

    the same people BAYER PHARMACIE , HÖCHST etc..
    who are producing psychopharmacie
    are producing death rays
    and pestizides
    which kills millions of people in 3rld world countires .
    . farmers on cotton fields and their families ..
    millions of poor people are sitting day and night in factories in china and india to produce fancy clothes for the
    western industrial greedy sellers and their customers
    they all pay for armies nuclear weapons and war

    looks like doomsday has arrived…

  705. Anthony thompson says:

    Meera. You are just being ignorant. You are mixing psychology, with psychiatry, which is not the same. And cognitive- behavioral psychology ( Which uses pharmacology), with Humanistic-transpersonal psychology, which is what I am speaking about.
    It is not the same.
    Please, be a bit more informed before discussing.

  706. meera says:

    shanti.. poison is not in my words
    when I speak TRUTH

    otherwise you can find a lot of ´poison ´in osho´s words
    when he talked about these ´facts´

    any guilt about being homosexual or drinking alcohol?

    only a meditator can have the

    ´birds eye view´

    mr thompson

    I´m with osho since 1981

    no need to explain anything to me…

    I know very well what is what

  707. Anthony thompson says:

    Therapy is essentially a way of understanding the intrinsic motivations behind your behavior by assigning meaning system, re-framing them or simply phenomenologically become an observer.
    It is also a way of releasing pent up tensions, symbolically relieve old traumas and give meaning to your present day life, and learn effective ways of satisfying your emotional needs…
    that is all.

  708. Anthony thompson says:

    Ms. Meera. You might very well have been with Osho since you were born, But about psychology you are mixing things up. Which shows me you do not know what you are writing about.

  709. Shanti says:

    Honey, meera accept it, you are screwed up with anger… ok, you can call it Zen, if you like…

  710. frank says:

    therapy has played a vital role in the sannyas movement up to today.
    says anthony.

    i rest my case.

  711. meera says:

    get ready to watch this satsang.

    .premananda .. former oshosannyasin
    he lives very close to my house http://www.openskyhouse.org

    bloody hell the spiritual bovver boys are at it again.

    if it wasn`t for perls,reich,freud,elliot,poe et al i might not know how to clean my teeth says tony.

    but if i hung around with most of the geezers on jackassnews for long enough,judging by their “aggression issues” and “fulfilling their needs” to be right all the time,pretty soon,none of us would have any teeth left to clean anyway!!

  713. Kranti says:

    Meera.. Meera

    What is happening
    you yourself said famous therapists made Osho famous

    and then

    ” osho explained us that therapy only prepares the ground for meditation….”

    Then you have a go at pshychiatry / drugs which is different subject

    Then some major judgements like ‘ homosexual leadership’

    When it is pointed out then you say

    ” any guilt about being homosexual or drinking alcohol”

    if thats the case why did you say about homosexual and drinking as though they are bad

    you yourself reverse the logic when someone questions your judgement

    Then out of anger you say

    ” I´m with osho since 1981

    no need to explain anything to me…

    I know very well what is what”

    Find a way ( therapy ) to cool down and read the posts again

  714. meera says:

    thanks for comment mr thompson
    a good therapy is a good thing
    unfortunately there is a lot of crap too
    in the name of therapy

    shanti honey

    I´m just an observer
    totally detached …

    your comment shows something about your projection
    your own screwed- up fucking supressed anger

    what is ZEN …..

    ZENMASTERS

    you habe never come across

  715. shantam prem says:

    Meera..it seems you have got too much information in your brain from all kind of doom Sayers.
    May be you can add in your information that some Maya Calander is doing a brisk business because it forecasts the end of the world in 2012. Bombs will destroy or the greed of the pharmacy industry will be the cause. May be the collective ego of all the enlightened people hidden behind the siren masks will bring the dooms day, what so ever my opinion is who cares, any way i was not going to inherit the Donald Trump’s real estate empire and neither i am in the good books of J&A.

    what i want to say is that world is moving beautifully and thanks to the intelligence growing in the masses, people selling any kind of gurudom are looked with skeptical eyes or with the amusement as one sees the street performers all over Europe.

    So if you want that in the remaining two years,people take Mr. rajneesh seriously rather than a copy cat, than don’t try to do the direct marketing like Herbal life products.
    If product has some appeal, people will buy it any way…

  716. Kranti says:

    ” judging by their “aggression issues” and “fulfilling their needs” to be right all the time,pretty soon,none of us would have any teeth left to clean anyway!!”

    May be Frank with little bit of help from therapies and tension release most of the people may not be here posting and wanting to be right…

  717. meera says:

    kranti
    It seems I contradict myself all the time…

    but actually it is all your interpretation…

    I never said anything is ´bad´

    everything
    IS
    AS IT
    IS

    good or bad is your projection

  718. Kranti says:

    ” a good therapy is a good thing
    unfortunately there is a lot of crap too
    in the name of therapy”

    Thats is always there in any filed Meera.. even in meditation and enlightenment.. That doesnt mean you can throw away meditation..

  719. shantam prem says:

    Meera your comments of pune are out of base. there are more people meditating nowadays than when osho was in the body.
    I can give you the numbers.

    My God.. !!!!!

    Anthony, do you know in North Korea people are buying more Samsung products than in South Korea.!

    Any doubt..??

    Please connect with the PR department of the great leader in Pyongyang!

  720. meera says:

    shantam
    I´m not here to sell mr rajneesh
    he is not my private property

    he is a good friend and a beautiful person

    like many others
    who got banned
    by
    the hotelmanagers of the resort

  721. prem bubbie says:

    To get back to name calling… Meera, I think you are an asshole, no other word can describe you. You say…”any guilt about being homosexual or drinking alcohol?” Now how moronic of a statement is that? Nature creates homosexuals, perfectly natural, perfectly natural to drink alcohol to ease one’s tensions… Obvious Meera you are in a permanent state of tension… not a chance of being enlightened while in tension. You say you speak “truth”… truth according to meera… through Meera’s delusional eyes…. Meera’s delusional eyes met sw. Rajneesh’s delusional eyes and it was love at first sight!!!!! You forgot your glasses!!!

  722. garimo says:

    >>>What i am trying to say is living with / around fellow sannyasins and relating to them on daily life is very fulfilling.. So after tasting the ‘ celebrative ‘ climate around Osho , when you settle down again and live in an environment where there are not many sannyaisns to relate with , what you feel about it ?<<<<

    Well Kranti,
    For me, as time went on and I experienced more, the pedestal that sannyasins had been placed on became lower and lower until the separation between them and everyone else seems pretty level. I think it might have to do with the environment I live. The Bay Area is not some spiritual desert devoid of people seeking awareness. It seems eventually all the gurus travel here. Adyshanti and others live in the neighborhood and there’s satsang here regularly, and now and then I may even go, but not as often as I go for a walk among two thousand redwoods that live a little up the road from me. Silence is wherever ya look for it.
    For me the message I got from Osho in His last days was to go be a buddha in the marketplace. Take whatever you’ve learned and go live it. So… since 1991 I’ve been tending to my business in the marketplace. Most everyday, I chop the spices and carry the water. http://GreatChai.com
    This afternoon, I’ll go set up a table in the Monterey Wholefoods market, give out samples and teach people how to brew Chai.

    My all time favorite inspirational discourse of Osho’s is still The Wisdom of The Sands, that included his commentary on Mojud. http://www.jamusha.de/english/Mojude.html, I still remember in 1982 working alone in a center mala repair shop listening to the same tape over and over…

    But Kranti… yes, people can tell stories of the great ‘ol days… but they’re just edited versions of what was, they’re not real. So nod your head politely and go create and live your own story. You’re not missing anything.

  723. Anthony thompson says:

    you are correct Frank…. soon there will be no teeth left.
    besides. the diagnosis you made of your self as a:semi-schizoid passive-aggressive anally retentive normally borderline neurotic with a malevolent planet in uranus.
    Seems to have a strong psychoanalytic influence… not my field of work.
    Regarding the “malevolent plant inuranus”, I think that qualifies with Meera´s judgments of the homosexual management.
    But, of course She just says the TRUTH… like her friend Sw. Rajneesh, You are right Shanti… it is called zen. and I had a pretty good taste at it.
    “I ´m gonna zen you up”!!! you have to see The light!!! I am just a dammed angry mirror!
    Lovely

  724. meera says:

    kranti
    meditation is not therapy…

    one cannot do it…

    meditation is a happening
    it might happen to you
    when you have cleared the ground by grace

    a MASTER can transmit his light to you

  725. meera says:

    bubbie
    here is your mirror

    YOU are the asshole
    who feels natural being a homosexual
    and using alcohol to relax your tensions

  726. frank says:

    well tony,
    thats what heppens with catharsis.
    you cant stop.
    once you start shouting it just goes on .
    like addiction.

    catharsis followed by freedom from “negative emotion”is a psychotherapeutic myth.

    you medical “experts” once prescribed heroin for opium addiction.

    same idea.

    will be understood soon.

  727. Anthony thompson says:

    My, My, girls ease up!

    Shantam you forger I am a researcher. I have the numbers with me. It is easy to know how many people are inside the hall, just count the shoes. In 1988-89 the average of people doing kundalini was 250. Most people were at home preparing for evening meeting
    Last winter the average was 320.
    I am no ones P. R: Just a researcher.

  728. Kranti says:

    Ok Meera

    Let us see now

    ” meditation is a happening
    it might happen to you”

    how can meditation can happen to you.. You were with Osho from 1981and he always told you meditation can not happen to ‘ you ‘… When meditation happens ‘you’ will not be there

  729. garimo says:

    >>two thousand redwoods<<

    two thousand year old redwoods

  730. shantam prem says:

    Where are the yellow or red cards?

  731. prem bubbie says:

    People seek out “therapies” and “therapists” simply because they don’t know how to live–live “naturally”. All out of desperation. Understandable, at least these people are sensitive enough to know that they are seriously screwed up in the head and are taking action to find a cure. Nothing wrong with that, but there is a time to let go of that “hand”. Like a 40 year old guy who can’t seem to leave his mother’s house. Back in “ole sannyasin days many knew about those many who were therapy addicts. These people would do whatever therapies and groups that were around. They just couldn’t or didn’t want to let go. The same is still happening here. With this attachment to the “resort,” Osho’s pagoda, his ashes, you name it, people cling, can’t see the sun beyond the clouds. Clowns like rajneesh, meera, amitabh, anurag and hari om, rem abhay, are just the same with the ‘resort” as their crutch, afraid to move on and grow and just stuck like a stagnant pond of water. so whether you’re stuck on therapies or “the resort” you’re still stuck and don’t speak “truth”. Meera send me your address and I’ll send you a case of scotch for Osho’s birthday- delivered of course by a homosexual eating a hamburger!!!

  732. garimo says:

    mr. researcher

    How many were sitting and meditating with Osho in ’89?
    and how many are doing that now?

    >>>Shantam you forger I am a researcher. I have the numbers with me. It is easy to know how many people are inside the hall, just count the shoes. In 1988-89 the average of people doing kundalini was 250. Most people were at home preparing for evening meeting<<<<

  733. Anthony thompson says:

    Frank. catharsis does not produce emotional freedom. It allows the organism to get back to his own homeostatic balance when it has been interrupted by repression. That is all. It does not solve problems. It just brings the organism back to balance.

  734. Kranti says:

    Anthony / Shantam

    We dont have to take that much pain to see whether number of people meditating are incresing..It is a very obivious thing.. Everywhere you go peoiple are into some of meditations.. It is around us everywhere in daily life..

    Like Shantam said

    ” what i want to say is that world is moving beautifully and thanks to the intelligence growing in the masses “

  735. garimo says:

    Huh… I made a post with a link, and it’s “waiting for moderation” before it’ll be posted?

    Seems many posts could use some moderation…

  736. Anthony thompson says:

    Garimo. in 89 the average of people sitting with Osho in evening meeting was 3800. There were never 10.000 buddhas. The eight was 6000 in ´92, I think
    Nowadays the average is 2200 in high season. and 630 in low season.

  737. garimo says:

    My memory is there were more people than could fit… and the surounding gardens were filled and there were video screens and outdoor speakers for those who were not in buddha hall.
    Did the shoes still on people feet get counted?

    Really 2200 sit together in evening meets… still?
    That’s great!

  738. Kranti says:

    catharsis does not produce emotional freedom ”

    My understanding is emotional freedom also got to do with understanding repressions and not accumulatin by being aware of the process. Osho placed a great emphasis on two aspects..One is the meditation / catharsis part and another one ‘ Understanding the process ‘ to enable one not accumulate..

  739. Anthony thompson says:

    Garimo. You are correct. the numbers I gave you were averages. Buddha hall could not sit more than 3500 people. The new Osho auditorium can sit only up to 5300, I think.
    During the time when Osho was alive, 89. Sometimes there were around 5000 people, an other times no more than 2000.

    Most people were there to listen to Osho, not so much to participate in meditations. That is why the numbers were not so high. Today, If you do not go to meditate there is not much to do around in the resort. You can be by the pool, but still that you can get at home. Therefore more people go to the meditations.

  740. Kranti says:

    ” at least these people are sensitive enough to know that they are seriously screwed up in the head and are taking action to find a cure. ”

    It is beautiful point Prem bubbie.. But misuse is there in any field..

    Infact what i see is even people who’ meditate do it as a dicipline and are deeply unconcious.. Somone practicing a meditation is no sign of intelligence or sensitivity

    There are so many Father / Mother figures in India who teach all forms of meditations ..but when i see the people who practice it they are highy unconcious..

  741. garimo says:

    Anthony,
    We seem to have a different idea of what sitting with Osho was.
    I’m not a researcher or anything, But you can’t really think people were just listening as he was leading gibberish or some other meditation, can you?

  742. Anthony thompson says:

    What I meant was that there were lots of people for the evening discourse- meeting – meditation. And not so many going to kundalini, nadabrama etc.

  743. garimo says:

    What I heard was meditation seperated from everthing happening and reduced to a bunch of numbers of people doing exercizes to make some point. Not taking into account the people mopping the floors, cooking the food and cleaning the toilets. My experience was those were meditations when Osho was alive.

  744. frank says:

    come on,tony..repression and catharthis are not newtonian units of energy,neatly balancing out like stastistics.

    lsd and dope probably changed how we see the the world more than therapy.
    do you think poona 1 would have got many customers without the acid explosion?

    but to still be doing it now,how old are we,50,60,70?–you would have to be a mug….or a real slow learner.

    but fair enough,we all need to earn a crust,and if that means wafflin away like you know what you`re talking about ..humanistic….growth….homeostasis…vertical….rhubarb……for money
    que sera sera…….

    Frank, friend. I am not advertising for people to do any kind of therapy unless they feel to. that is all. actually, I think no one should do therapy for a long time. it is addictive. But to say there is no value on it is simply ignorant.
    and yes, calibration is part of a researcher´s job… what to do!
    Ok gotta go.
    thanks again… nice trip. i am to lead a primal weekend

  762. Anand says:

    Meera definitely added to this thread, in so far she is showing the completely lunatic fringe of Osho sannyasins, who believe they know everything, since they joined the movement at a certain point in time, in her case 1981. And at that date human growth stopped.
    Swami Rajneesh never did therapies, since Indian at that time were not allowed to join therapy groups, probably due to their collective hang up of groping women. He went straight from slow walking to enlightenment on Russias grounds. I rest my case.

  763. meera says:

    Anand is proving to be a complete lunatic

    he believes he knows everything
    he never added to this thread
    in his case he is already resting in his grave
    but still hanging on women and groping in the dark

    therapy never got him anywhere
    he is still a racist
    suffering from an inferioritycomplex….

    you cannot even call him human

  764. garimo says:

    Anthony,
    OshoBob says to post anything… So I’ll post an apology.
    I have to apologize for my misunderstanding this morning.
    Somehow I had gotten it in my head you had said there was a greater number of people meditating now days in the ashram than there was in ’89.
    But this evening I’ve re-read and I see you wrote there is more people doing *Kundalini* and the translating that into *meditation* happened in my mind only.
    So it’s my error that my questions had nothing to do with what you actually said. Please excuse me if I was sounding a bit off the wall with my question about meditations.

    Before for centuries it was PRAYER.

    Kind of writing love letters to God.
    The clever people built their empires around this.

    Now it is MEDITATION

    Kind of techniques to screw Existence.
    The clever people are building their empires around this.

  766. meera says:

    MEDITATION
    is not a business
    MEDITATION
    is a state of being..awareness

    only
    a
    MYSTERY SCHOOL
    with an
    alive MASTER
    can give the
    ´TRANSMISSION OF THE LAMP

    business is only for the mediocre masses
    who know nothing
    of
    MEDITATION
    of
    love
    of
    benediction

  767. Kranti says:

    Now I know why Rajneesh is against threapies

    ” Swami Rajneesh never did therapies, since Indian at that time were not allowed to join therapy groups “

  768. Kranti says:

    Meera

    You are MULTI DIMENSIONAL..

  769. Kranti says:

    The Key diffrentiator for all these Gurus using Osho name is what exactly they are delivering

    If they have immence love for Osho and they want to carry on His work then they just have to conduct Osho meditation camps and guide people on the path . Just stick to the basics..

    But most of the guys are caught inbetween the desire to set up shop on their own and also needing to have disciples from sannyas community itself rather attracting new crowd ..What typically Shanthi called fishing..

    If they think have attained & attach so much significance to individuality then why cant they go ahead and have their own centers and mention Osho name just as INSPIRATION

    In that sense i respect mos of people who moved away fom Osho but mention his name as just out of love..Not using His name to get disciples / customers..

    Ofcoourse this happens in therapists also..I am not denying it.. But when somone goes to therapy they are aware of its limitations..It is more Pshychological game and not a spiritual game..And he people who get attracted to therapists are rch people who dont have anything else to do ..not gullible ordinary people

    There is legal saying ‘ Customers Beware ‘.. So people who go to therapists who are using Osho name are still going their more as customers ..not for spiritual seeking

    But when you set up a ‘ spiritual ‘ or ‘ enlightenment ‘ shop then there is no need to use Osho name..

    Just imagione Swami Rajneesh without any clashes with Inner Circle and all these reactions but just a independent awakened teacher teaching some vertical dancing to whoever comes to them , out of love but not actually making effort to market himselves.

    That would have been a lot more beautiful & simple & honest .. He does looks graceful in some of these videos while dancing..

    Effectively most of these gurus have added to the existing confusions / controversies.. Osho is getting burried inside all the things people like Oshodhara do.. they hide behind Indian tradition / Master / Love etc etc..

    But it all just seems FISHING.. nothing significant and valuable..

    to be honest whatever intelligent / concious people are doing , these gys are undoing everything ( I dont want to get into who these concious peiople are at this point )

  770. Anand says:

    I like Meera’s response. She shows her face (again and again). And why she claims, that a mystery school is only around an alive master?
    The Mystery school continues……for the people connected.

  771. frank says:

    ….very mysterious…..mysteriouser and mysteriouser…..tell us more anand……maybe we wouldn`t understand…..is it top secret……..”the people connected”……in the know………..funny handshakes…….under the robe…..round the back of the pyramids……after hours….mum`s the word….not a lot of people know that……..nudge nudge…..wink wink…. very eenteresting……..

  772. meera says:

    Kranti namasté
    I bow down to the >Buddha in YOU

    you are very right..
    therapy is not known in India
    because not necessary
    people are not destroyed
    by using only the calculative mind

    they have lived for thousand of years in a state of no-.mind
    also because they are since thousand of years vegetarians

    the calculative mind has created
    all theses neurosises
    therefore therapy is needed
    to prepare the ground for mediation
    to clear all the conditioned accumulated supressions

    it has become a big business
    because the western religion is very poor
    and it is not a religion at all
    it is all the result of the cunning priesthood
    to cripple humanity
    so they could be exloited by the politicians
    and nobody want to live a life as a slave.
    that created all theses neurosises

    the politician has all the POWER
    he is exploiting humanity
    they have brought humanity
    to the verge of global suicide

  773. Kranti says:

    “because not necessary
    people are not destroyed
    by using only the calculative mind ‘

    I wish this is the reality Meera.. with due respect to your judgement Indians are one of the most calculative ..Not sure whether you lived around normal Indians in daily life.. There is even community based talent…so and so communities are calculative etc.. They prove that time and agains even when you don to belive such labelling

    I just quit my job because my cunning / calculative boss stabed from behind..to promote his own group..I am typical Osho disciple.. just gave it back to the senior management and resigned..

    The point i am making is Indians by nature and because of join family system , competative society are more cunning and calculative

  774. Kranti says:

    It is interesting.. We never discussed which group / category of people are calculative / cunnung before..I know it is judgemental.. But it is a interesting subject..same like saying Jews have good business mind..heard some Osho jokes on that

  775. frank says:

    so meera,
    remember your “vegetarian no-mind” of india
    invented the caste system,part of which the majority of humans could not walk even in brahmin shadow under threat of death.
    the brahmins are exploitative “priests and politicians” par excellence.
    these kind of people hated osho.
    and they hate you too,as the depraved western hippy whore that they would take you for.

    these vegetarian `no-mind` people are murdering each other regularly-for caste,for religion.
    or do you blame the meat-eating muslims?

    have you ever seen a hindu-muslim riot?.
    strangely,i have.the veg were giving the non-veg a good beating,too.
    it was not the kind of no-mind that osho was talking about,i can assure. altho` i could almost see you there with a stick,judging frmo your posts…..

    come on meera,you seem stuck in a kind of 60s/70s hippy fantasy about india—

    “wow,man,like,their religion is so psychedelic,man,like theyve got psychedelic pictures of gods in chai shops and stuff with like,loads of arms and elephant`s heads,like a hendrix album cover,man..and like flowers and incense in the temples,…i felt like i was tripping..man….and you can buy chillums and dope in the market in government shops,its amaaaazing……..wow”

  776. Kranti says:

    Lot of factors contributes to this apart from caste…Poverty , Joint family , and most importantly religion..The indian mind is complex and restless..

    sometime they give you an impression that they are spiritual because they are very lethargic

  777. Dear kranti

    ——————————————————————-
    You said

    Now I know why Rajneesh is against threapies

    ” Swami Rajneesh never did therapies, since Indian at that time were not allowed to join therapy groups “
    ——————————————————————-

    May be that might be one of the reason that he was not stuck in therapy and got enlightened.

    Real message of Osho was not therapy but Meditation and Enlightenment.

    Which it seems Rajneesh had understood clearly.

    Don’t forget that, According to Osho – Rajneesh is the ideal sannyasin of Ashram.

    May be that’s why so many sannyasins are jealous of him too.

    He is someone from us who has understood Osho message clearly and walked on the path.

    Walk you talk and then I will see how much you have understood Osho.

    love
    amitabh

  778. Dhanyam says:

    Garimo and Prem Bubble,

    I found it interesting about your Jinesh/Puja connection. They have been part of our community here in Marin (California) for a long time. If you want to connect, email me at oshoviha@oshoviha.org and I will put you in touch with them.

  779. Dhanyam says:

    Anthony,

    I always enjoy reading your posts and insights, but knowing how many people were in Buddha Hall by counting the shoes doesn’t seem right. If there were 3,800 people in Buddha Hall in 1989, it would take a full crew to count 7,600 shoes, and the shoes were usually spread out all over the place, not just on the (very messy) shoe rack.

    As I remember there were two counters by the Buddha Hall entrance with mechanical counters, and you could hear them clicking as people entered Buddha Hall.

  780. meera says:

    Anand
    the only cunning priests face which shows up here
    is YOU
    I´m just using the same condemnation for you
    with wich you condemded me
    because I´m mirroring you

    if you condemn others
    you will be condemnd
    so be aware…

    you are talking utter nonsense
    you have not a glimpse
    of what a MYSTERY SCHOOl is

    the place
    doesn´t mean anything..
    the place is run by politicians and therapists( priests)

    you can feel the aura of an alive MYSTIC

    OSHO has withdrawn from this place

    you can find him only
    dissolved
    in HIS people

  781. meera says:

    frank and kranti
    i know very well what is this country India…
    after all
    I have lived there over the period of 10 years
    mostly staying with local people…
    I know Indians from up to down through
    all the castes and creeds

    and I got my share of India as well

    the India I´m talking about is not geographical

    I´m talking about those people
    who are the´real ´Indians
    Osho talked about them many times..
    he said that you might be born in Germany or America
    still you can be the
    ´real ´Indian..
    other people they might be born in India
    by indian parents
    but they are not the category of
    ´real Índians I´m talking about

    the `indian `I´m talking about
    is a certain category
    who has all these ´no-mind´qualities
    and India is full of them
    in body and disembodied souls
    who have meditated for thousand of years..
    RISHIS
    these people left something ,
    some aroma,
    they are a PRESENCE
    because they never died..
    they are fully conscious souls in
    MAHASAMADHI
    AWAKENING
    NEVER BORN ::NEVER DIED:::::::::::

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN TODAY

  785. Kranti says:

    Swami Amitabh..

    i never said Therapy is everything..I just said it ahs its place

    and remeber Osho derived lot of inputs / steps for His meditations from therapies..So talking about Osho meditations and disgarding therapy comletely is not right..

    Anyway Anthony has captrured how much value Osho attached to therapies ..

    So Rajneesh denying therapies is just a stunt..same way he said things against Osho himself

    Please also let me know what you mean by ‘ walk your talk’ .. I feel I do walk my talk .. Not sure whether what exactly you meant ..

    I dont think Osho considered ajneeshalone as ideal disciple and all.. He would have said that in some context to hit somone else or may he would have appreciated some aspect of Rajneesh himself..It s ok,,

    But if he the ideal disciple then Osho would have sourrounded himself by people exactly like Rajneesh..He didnt seemed to have done that.. Infact he chose to be with people who are quite opposite to Rajneesh..

  786. Anand says:

    Thanks Meera, I enjoy your shouting mind. So much anger. But of course there is a buddha inside somewhere too.

  787. Anand says:

    I watched some of the videos of swami rajneesh. He is a carbon copy of Osho.
    He is imitating Osho in his mimics and gestures and eye movements and even his dance style. Like an actor. He talks against therapists, they must be his closest competitors. I feel a real enlightened being should have his own authenticity, his own style and his own message and then will find his own people and does not need to copy Osho and gather folks from the innocent new sannyasin crowd. The same goes for Dolana and many other satsang teachers. Do your own thing and be happy.

  788. meera says:

    HI frank and garimo
    how is it that you call be a bitch?!

    ALWAYS remember
    that you are
    SONS OF BITCHES…HAHAHAHAAAAAAAA

  789. Kranti says:

    ” I feel a real enlightened being should have his own authenticity, his own style and his own message and then will find his own people and does not need to copy Osho and gather folks from the innocent new sannyasin crowd ”

    Thats is right Anand. thats what also i said in my earlier post today..

  790. Kranti says:

    Meera.. you are attacking a wrong guy.. Garimo

  791. meera says:

    Anand

    A Buddha knows himself
    A BUddha is not someone running around like you
    calling himself Anand
    and bitching around

    what do you know abut OSHO?NOTHING !!!!!!!!
    only fantasies

  792. meera says:

    kranti
    osho himself has said that HIS people will become
    LIKE HIM

    you people know very little of OSHO

    read this blog of sw Subhuti
    who has posted countless oshoquotes
    to enlighten the world

    Don’t you ever get tired of us and our stupidity?

    Gurudas,
    I RATHER ENJOY IT! Moreover, I have to do something, and this is the only thing that one can go on doing forever and forever.

    JESUS WAS BORED so he went to God his father and asked him, “Dad, give me something to do, I am bored! ”
    “Take a file and smooth the top of the Himalayas,” said God.
    After 7,000 years Jesus came back again. “And now what can I do?” he asked God again.
    God gave him a spoon and told him to empty the Indian Ocean.
    After 7,000 years, he was back again. “It’s done… and now?” he asked God.
    Tired, God looked at him and said, “Listen, Jesus, go down to Earth and convince the men down there to love each other. That will keep you busy for eternity!”

    I am not a priest, it is not my duty. Otherwise one is bound to get bored and tired. It is my joy, it is my love!

    THE POPE is redecorating his summer residence of Castelgandolfo. When the work is finished, he comes with the chief decorator to see the results. Everything is perfect.
    When he arrives at his bedroom, the decorator, to give the final touch, hangs a beautiful antique 12th-century cross just over the bed.
    “Oh, no, no, no, my son!” exclaims the Pope. “I have already told you not to put anything here that reminds me of my office!”

    This is not my work — this is my joy, this is my play. I am really enjoying it!

    A RUSSIAN COSMONAUT comes back from his space travel. Brezhnev receives him: “Tell me the truth, comrade. Did you meet God up there?”
    “If you want the truth — yes, I found him!” replies the cosmonaut.
    “I thought so,” replies Brezhnev. “Now promise me never to reveal this to anyone.”
    After a few months the same cosmonaut is received by the Pope. When they are alone, the Pope whispers to him, “Now, my dear son, please tell me — did you meet God up there?”
    Faithful to his promise, the cosmonaut replies, “No, unfortunately not, Your Sanctity.”
    And the Pope sadly replies, “I thought so. Now listen, promise me never to tell this to anyone!”

  793. Anand says:

    Meera, I love your reactions….!

  794. Anand says:

    Meera, what about that: there is no self, so there is no self to be knowing…..

  795. Kranti says:

    Swami Rajneesh can be inconsistent.. He can talk according to situation. Thats is perfoectly alright..But he can not talk as someone not informed enough ..

    His basic attack against therapists and therapies is confusing enough. On top of that he also says Osho’s original meditations are enough , superficial threapies are not required.. This is completely ignoring the fact that Osho derived the so called original meditations from thearpies ALSO and He had high regard & a place for therapies / therapists..

    Trying to SPLIT Osho meditations and talking against therapists in general is not a well thought about attack..

    Increasingly the dividing line between therapy and meditation is getting blurred… Now therapies have gone beyond their theraptic usage and they are entering the spiritual arena.. Osho No-Mind meditation , Mystic rose meditations are actually called therapies not meditation techniques..

    This is where Anthony was talking about ‘ Osho gave contemporary psychology the process of dis- identification with the content of your mind as way out of therapy ”

    So Rajneesh talking against therapies / therapists is either very ill informed or just a stunt or has not atleast come out in the open with clarity .

    Ofcourse if he is talking against specific therapies / therapists it is different issue .. It is not discrediting therapy in general..

  796. Kranti says:

    Meera.. Good jokes including the following

    ” read this blog of sw Subhuti
    who has posted countless oshoquotes
    to enlighten the world ”

    How about that? Someone posting Osho quotes to enlighten the world… Seems too easy a job..

  797. meera says:

    äh sorry garimo
    wanted to say amrito

    one gets confused with names
    if one dosen´t have an image in front…

  798. Kranti says:

    Meera ..sent you a facebook invite.. Please accept

  799. oshobob says:

    Anthony has given a good run down of some of the therapists that got attracted to Osho, and how he incorporated some experimental theraputic techniques into his “active meditations” of the 70′s. Though to call Sw. Veeresh, “Dr.” Yuson, would seem to be a stretch — doctor of the hugfest boozeria maybe….

  800. Kranti says:

    Someone posted in facebook



    The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

    It is beautiful.. seems like the conciousness is trying to break free in every possible way as more and more peiople get into dancing / meditations

  801. prem bubbie says:

    Meera- you’re not enlightened after all!!! Confused over names? Also confused over enlightened gurus!!!! HA HA!!! What else are you confused about? Can’t see straight, can’t hear straight, can’t walk straight, Can’t even post straight, Go back to your crooked closet and take rajneesh-enlightened-not, with you. “REAL” Indians, you sound like the gestapo when they were trying to figure out who were “REAL” Germans!!!! Oh I forgot you’re living in Germany right now, must be rubbing of on you. Chameleon/shape shifter phony!!!! Amitabh: delusional still. You actually believe rajneesh is enlightened!!! You too are confused, too many gurus to chose from so you chose the “sweet talking” slow walking, butt-ugliest of them all!!! Meera- do you have extra space in that closet of yours? Amitabh needs some shelter. What a bunch of numb skulls!!!!!

  802. prem bubbie says:

    Hi, Dhynam, thanks for message, I do have J/P’s current address and phone number. Thanks again B

  803. prem bubbie says:

    To settle all this shit about enlightenment once and for all. Either we all are or are not enlightened. Pretty simple, but since most of us are drama queens and can’t keep it simple, this debate and arguing and hatred is the result. Halloween is here, take of your drama queen costumes and have some fun and celebrate for a change… Yeah FAT chance…..

  804. Kranti says:

    Prem Bubbie

    Ok.. We are all not enlightened.. What about this one from Amitabh?

    ” According to Osho – Rajneesh is the ideal sannyasin of Ashram. ”

    Atleast you have to accept you are not ideal sannyasin..

  805. prem bubbie says:

    There is no such thing as “the ideal” sannyasin, Just like the “chosen few” back in the ranch days. It’s all bullshit, all to see how sannyasins will react. As usual most sannyasins then and now are concerned about being the “ideal” sannyasin. Reminds me of my childhood and for many others too, how our parents used to say:” why can’t you be like so and so,” “so and so got straight A’s in school, why can’t you be like him/her” We are who we are, fucked up/ screwed up, all a matter of degrees/extremes. Those sad clowns, meera, rajneesh and others appear to be, through their own mouths, psychotic, very extreme, totally off the deep end with their attitudes and judgments. Sure I’m judging, I judge all the time while I’m in this body and living in this physical world, one can’t survive without judging. I think I’m using all my experiences and common sense and practicality when I do judge. And when i come across characters such as meera, amitabh, anurag and rajneesh– well, some things are so obvious, one has to be brain damaged not to notice those warped beings. The reason why there is still so much violence and hatred among humans is that we tolerate it, and accept it. “Nip it in the bud” Don’t let it grow. Don’t tolerate it, don’t accept it, be assertive, have one’s eyes open, be sensitive and aware. As in the martial arts- be aware of the energy around you. Keep characters like those mentioned above in check, don’t let them grow. So much talk of meditation- how there are many more meditating now than 20 years ago, that 300 enlightened people will change the world. OH Really? That was probably Osho’s greatest joke ever told!!! The world is worse now than ever!!!! Not only the sannyas world but the world in general. Rajneesh continues to make lots of money, more stupid people, gullible people and as I see it, with no common sense, taken in by the sweet talking, the slow walking; this convinces people that this person’s enlightened!!!!! He rallies for populist causes, fakes meekness, grows a long beard and then claims to be a holy man. Yeah I’m not an Ideal sannyasin, never claimed to be. I think I’m straight forward and honest- then maybe I’m also extremely delusional. For this website to tolerate the bigotry, the phobia of those puritanical pussies, is way beyond me. How about we put a stop to it? are the rest of you too chicken to do it? So far except for a few gutsy individuals, I think so. Hope that anserws your question. What was it again? I’m confused!!!!!!

  806. meera says:

    WOW kranti

    most fascinating video…

    very inspiring…

    this gives hope for the new generation……..

  807. Kranti says:

    My God Bubbie.. Thats a lengthy stuff..Didnt expect..

    You poured it man.. Let me read it few times more..

    Now i am confused what i asked..

    Anyway i do get the essence of what you are saying..

    As far as stopping these debates are concerned i can only say it is becoming less serious ..So I am not too worried about getting out / getting in etc..
