The President, The Prime-minister and VIPs of Nepal at Osho Tapoban

It was a rare sight that the main gates of an Osho commune were guarded with some of the most experienced and highly trained security men of the country along with the media persons from all channels and newspapers. The traffic on the Balaju to Tapoban highway had been blocked for security reasons. As sannyasins at Tapoban were in their third stage of Dynamic meditation in the Buddha hall, the commune flocked with groups of commandos, sniffing dogs, special police force, military chiefs and ADCs who had come to ensure the security inside the commune premises.

For the first time in history, an Osho commune was being visited by The President, The Prime-Minister, The Cabinet of ministers and many other VIPs of the country. The auspicious occasion was to mark the 86th birthday of Former- Prime-Minister Krishna Prasad Bhattarai and the inauguration of Tapoban’s first Hindi magazine.

Krishna Prasad Bhattarai, who is an Osho lover and a residential member at the commune had requested the commune management that his 86th birthday be celebrated at his favorite place.

On 13th December, as the guests started to arrive, the long list of VVIPs included President Ram Baran Yadav, Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal, Former-Prime minister and Maoist Party Chairman Prachanda, Acting President of Nepal Congress Sushil Koirala, Nepal Congress Parliamentarian leader Ram Chandra Paudel, Former-Prime Ministers Surya Bahadur Thapa, Lokendra Bahadur Chand and Kirtinidhi Bista, Former Commander in Chief of Nepal Army Rookmangad Katuwal and two hundred other VIPs, diplomats and foreign ambassadors.

Regarding the contemporary political scenario of Nepal also, this was a historic event for the stakeholders of Nepalese politics. After the resignation of Maoist Chief Prachanda from the post of Prime Ministership a year ago, this was the first time that all these leaders were seen together at the same public function. Speaking during the function, Maoist Chief Prachanda said, “I look upon Kishun jee as a real democrat and I am thankful to Tapoban for organizing this meeting and giving me an opportunity to come here. Very few people know that during my student years, Osho’s books were the ones that I read the most. Communism and Osho complement each other.”

President Ram Baran Yadav who had been willing to come to Tapoban since a long time and had expressed this desire with Swami Arun called on for peace and said, “Let all the parties move together and let the peace prevail.” The president also lauded the contribution made by Bhattarai for the democracy movement in Nepal. “He dedicated all his life fighting for democracy,” he said.

Likewise, speaking at the function Prime-Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal said that maybe it’s because Kishunjee frequents Tapoban so much that he has such a clean personality. After entering the commune premises he had said, “I had heard that Tapoban was doing a very good work and many foreigners come here and stay for months. Now that I am here I don’t feel like going back at all.” After inquiring about the commune and its programs he requested that he should be invited frequently and that he would love to come and participate. He further added that the peaceful environment at Tapoban could inspire all political leaders to take a peaceful path.

During the program Tapoban also launched its first hindi magazine titled, Osho Tapoban which was released by Krishna Prasad Bhattarai along with Yes! Osho and Osho World that are published from India.

    The most shameful moment in the history of the ‘Osho movement’. Congratulations Osho Tapoban for being outright hypocrites and sell-outs.

  2. joe says:

    i don think there’s anything to be shameful of. its a big thing to have the nation head come to an Osho commune and show that he’s interested in meditation otherwise they only shun Osho. if only all the politicians meditated in the world, this world would have been a better place. Very exceptional and good work. Congratulations Osho Tapoban!!!

  3. preeti says:

    hahhahahahahaha hahahhahah

    thts true ROB…

  4. frank says:

    rob,
    what about when they showed jeffrey archer round osho`s library at the resort?
    that was cringe comedy at its slimiest.

    all we need now is tony blair to head a sannyas peace process……

  5. frank says:

    but seriously,frankadamus has predicted that oshoism will be the state religion of nepal quite soon….

    maybe that will be good….

    but wait….another vision…..
    i see the final lines of george orwell`s “animal farm” flashing before my eyes:

    “the creatures outside looked from pig to man ,from man to pig and from pig to man again,but already it was impossible to tell which was which”

  6. Kranti says:

    We can not keep these presidents and prime ministers out of anything too long..

    I dont whether they wanted to visit the place or invited for obivious reasons..

    The best is to forget those guys the moment they step out of the place..

  7. Kranti says:

    These two are the best jokes of the entire stuff

    ” For the first time in history, an Osho commune was being visited by The President, The Prime-Minister, The Cabinet of ministers and many other VIPs of the country”

    ” Krishna Prasad Bhattarai, who is an Osho lover and a residential member at the commune had requested the commune management that his 86th birthday be celebrated at his favorite place.”

    Big time jokers.. Wish Osho is there now to see this…. No politician would have dared to come near Osho centers

  8. frank says:

    what guys?

  9. Kranti says:

    Dear o Dear.. I was wrong… More jokes

    ” Communism and Osho complement each other.”

    “Let all the parties move together and let the peace prevail.”

    ” The president also lauded the contribution made by Bhattarai for the democracy movement in Nepal. “He dedicated all his life fighting for democracy,”

    Thanks Swami Atmo Neerav..

    Yes but Osho had a soft spot for Indira Gandhi and she almost visited the commune…see below

    http://www.oshoworld.com/biography/innercontent.asp?FileName=biography7/07-59-indira.txt

    And I believe in Pune 1 there was a sannyasin performance of ‘A Midsummers Nights Dream’ in her presence, though I do not know the location–presumably not the commune.

  12. prem bubbie says:

    GET LOST POLITICIANS! Scum of the earth(next to religious leaders). How many have died in Nepal’s civil war? All over politics!!! Go fuck yourselves, drop dead, eat shit , go back to the mountains and fuck mountain goats, because that’s all you are worth!!!! WELL SAID, ROB!!!! As for the leaders at Tapoban— resign, give your malas back!!! As for the editors at Sannyasnews– YOU’RE FIRED!!!!! NEW APPLICANTS ARE WELCOME!!! Not only do you at Sannyasnews keep digging up old and worn out gossip, now you give a platform and energy to politicians!! Who next, the kraut pope? New blood is needed at sannyasnews or is it the “RAGNEWS”?Time for intelligent topics to be published!!!!!

  13. prem bubbie says:

    Democracy movement? I thought Osho was against democracy…. Hundreds of times Osho talked about the dreads of politics and those who worship it… only organized religion is lower…. way too much ecstasy use going on up at Tapoban…. send Meera up there… she does have some use after all… with her madness, she’ll whip those boys up there so fast they’ll be running to the airport to catch the next plane to Beijing!!!! You Go Girl!!!!

  14. garimo says:

    Happy Birthday Swami Bhattarai. Looks like it was quite the party.
    I can only imagine the amount of excitement and adventure that must have filled the day.

  15. oshobob says:

    looks to me like a fund-raiser.
    a public relations event.
    Nepal–poor country.
    Ist priority for any politician is to get outside bucks into the national economy.
    tourism being the number one method.
    Tapoban is trying to attract Westerners to it’s communes.
    Tapoban is in Nepal.
    Those politicians are in Nepal.
    a no-brainer equation.
    Politicians use Tapoban as an economic wick.
    Tapoban uses politicians as a PR tool for it’s own agenda.
    Hey boys, the heady days of individual sannyasins dumping big bucks as donations is long gone.
    Arun needs cash to fly to the States. And to keep the communes running and solvent.
    The politicians need national public destinations for foreigners to showcase to their constituency as Nepalese revenue machines.
    A marriage made in heaven — in a certain weird and wacky way…
    The old guy who’s having his 86th birthday, he’s just smiling and happy that he has a place to crash after a life in politics, and can still be a mover and a shaker in his last years of retirement.
    Another strange story…but, then again, aren’t they all these days.

  16. sannyasnews says:

    Alok John is right. Indira Gandhi almost visited the Ashram in Pune and Osho encouraged that, and was pretty keen on her. She would have done so but there were as I remember security doubts.
    It may or may not have been “politics” with a small p, but this sort of thing that Arun is doing is not so off-key with the way that Osho himself behaved in this regard. The posters here could not have been around in Pune when Osho was alive, otherwise their comments would not be so absurd.
    A number of “celebrities”, film stars, authors, actors, etc and local politicians, etc visited the ashram during those times and were well looked after.
    One Indian sannyasin who was a film star at the time subsequently served as a politician at Cabinet level in the Indian government.
    And have you seen that Maoist leader who basically got rid of the old order in Nepal dance? There is a wonderful 70 second clip of him dancing on u-tube. He sure is in touch with himself.
    Never dismiss anyone because of a label or whatever job they may say they are doing, or others say they are doing. Each human being is unto himself without labels.

  17. frank says:

    who knows?
    maybe these will be wise men advising wise rulers about mountain kingdoms like in old tibet or idries shah sufi stories or the i-ching,where the wise ruler listens to the words of the superior man and crosses the great stream or whatever.
    or maybe they`re just another bunch of fat bald guys on the make.

    we`ll probably never find out.
    we still havent even worked out whether osho was the most enlightened guy of all time or just a nitrous puff-daddy with a wacky line in practical jokes…..

    i suppose it depends on who you are unto yourself,what you believe.

    btw,sannyasnews,
    i like that:

    “each human being is unto himself without labels”

    kind of fritz perls meets the new testament

  18. frank says:

    one thing tho`,sannyas news:
    do you think bhagwan would have bowed to feet to a politician in his ashram?

  19. frank says:

    the biggest celebrity the sannyas movement attracted in “the west” was rd laing,when he lobbed a full bottle of wine through the window of the london centre in 1985,shouting “orange wankers”.
    when he was arrested the cops asked him why he did it,he said :”religious reasons”

  20. frank says:

    but cosying up to some politicos is probably the way to go.
    osho`s in your face,anti-politician/priest tack was pretty suicidal,really…….

    from his own account,he was imprisoned,poisoned,radiated,expelled,banned,threatened from pretty much everywhere.
    what for?
    so a bunch of hippies could find out that you cant trust the govenment?
    come on.
    time for a new approach.

    nepal could turn itself into THE ultimate pilgrimage/tourist destination.
    trekking,hot springs,spas meditation centres everywhere–they could turn the whole country into a buddha-zorba-osho theme park.
    get all the unemployed guys to clean the place up,its pretty filthy,
    then watch all the wealthy westerners roll in to a terrorist-free,build pyramids in durbar square next to the pagodas,enlighetnment as soon as you get off the plane and see those snow capped peaks,…..
    wow,man.
    i will go there.
    katmandu could be shangri-la again,but this time with central heating,good food,and all mod cons.
    it`s gonna happen……

  21. oshobob says:

    about Indira Gandhi and the Pune 1 Ashram…

    i just listened to a tape recently by Osho discussing just that subject for nearly 15 minutes…his conclusion was that she didn’t come because her advisors advised against it, yes, for security, but not physical security–political security was Osho’s conclusion. She had too much too lose politically to be associated in any way with Osho and his Ashram in the 70′s. And they were most likely correct. A Midsummer Night’s Dream? Sweet, but surely not having anything to do with The Man’s wild and radical brew of Pune 1…

  22. oshobob says:

    frank could be right there…

    with Osho centers, ashrams, and communes springing up in Nepal as fast as summer dandelions it seems, and that unique history too…

    like that Maoist guy, Prachada, who was in the government cabinet until just last year, that’s so unique, kinda like having Eldridge Cleaver being Secretary of State in Richard Nixon’s cabinet of the early 70′s, then quitting and giving a speech at the local Zen temple in LA….haha…these things happen in the East though — Chinese emperors were always going to the Zen masters for one reason or another…

    I think we are all going to have to get used to more and more couplings that would only seem to be born in The Twilight Zone, but will become everyday events in the near future…

  23. shantam prem says:

    wow what a nice post. it is bringing the best of typical sannyas cynical attitude.

  24. amrito says:

    I find that many sannyasins nowadays, especially on this site, have a HUGE habit of nagging and complaining.

    Just like dogs (males and females) bitchin yappidy yap yap…

    Osho certainly spoke against politicians, but moreso, the “political” mind within every person in the audience as well. And whether popular politicians entered the ashram during his time is not the real issue!

    What about the politicians who were born within the ashram who turned out to be worse than politicians found outside it?!

    Its inevitable. So Prem Bubblie, quite ur yappin because as much as you distance urself from Meera, u seem to be her “mirror”.

    Rob, i think we’ve established that you’re post had little to no substance nor significance.

    Everyone else: there is something certainly happening within Nepal, and its beautiful. People are meditating, dancing, singing and being “happy” too through Osho Tapoban. They aint selling drugs nor charging rediculous entrance fees nor hiding Osho from an Osho Meditation Center!

    Atleast, this event safeguards Tapoban’s survival in Nepal and may very well bring thousands more into it! Its like people who only heard “sex” during the early 70s when they heard of Osho, and came running! Now they’ll see these monkey politicians, and will come running!!

    It doesn’t matter what the bate is, something awesome is definatley Happening.

    -Amrito

  25. frank says:

    like you say bob,it really could be just a return to ancient form…

    with zen masters and emperors,
    presidents and disciples,
    warlords and shamans,
    yuppies and yippies
    all mxing it up on the same stage………
    but in a totally modern way…

    presidents get therapy
    economists have tarot readings
    guerillas drop e and go dancing for a couple of nights
    ceos give it all away and move to a pad in the hills
    the chief of police goes on a laughter retreat
    soldiers hug each other on parade
    artists paint collages of marx(karl and groucho)osho,buddha and michael jackson on city walls
    maoists doing moonwalks….

    oh yeah….
    i can be part of that…..

  26. Krishnananda says:

    I agree with Amrito.
    Something awesome is definitely happening.
    Politicians will seldom come to meditate (although some have come..) but people from all over Nepal and around the world know about Tapoban. Osho is more accepted among people than ever (at least in Nepal). Those who love to criticize will never stop, be it a politician or a monk.
    Oshoooo!

  27. (Alok John is right. Indira Gandhi almost visited the Ashram in Pune and Osho encouraged that, and was pretty keen on her. She would have done so but there were as I remember security doubts.
    It may or may not have been “politics” with a small p, but this sort of thing that Arun is doing is not so off-key with the way that Osho himself behaved in this regard.)

    I wud like to correct this record, as I lived in Osho commune pune 1974-81 years. Indira Gandhi never visited, though she wanted to visit. she was in touch with Ma Laxmi, Osho’s secretary. But Indira Gandhi’s adviiser Pupul Jayakar who was J Krishnamurti’s disciple advised Indira against meeting Osho.
    Osho talks about it in Hindi discourses.
    Earlier Osho had met Indira Gandhi in Delhi, a few hours before she sacked Morar ji Desai. And Morar ji blamed Osho for this sacking, thinking that she did this on Osho’s advice.
    Osho did praise Indira, and criticised her also.
    Osho is against political mind, nut as he is not against them as persons or humna beings.
    Down the centuries all Enlightened ones in India had the kings and politicians as their disciples, Buddha Mahavira, Krishna and Upanishdic Rishis all.
    So don’t be in a hurry to condemn everybody.
    Osho even welcomed a city mayor of Pune when he came back after his world tour.

  28. prem bubbie says:

    As for Amrito- you can blow me!!!! If you don’t like the complaining , go jerk off somewhere else!! And what do you think YOUR posting is about, wanker? As for Krishnananda, ” something awesome definitely happening”…. you must be joking… have you had your head up your ass since you were born? That Maoist politician, dancing joyfully remembering all the people he murdered!!! “Osho is more accepted among people more than ever”…. yeah, either they are brain dead, ultraneurotic, drugged up, internet addicted, sex- starved or imbeciles… take your pick… most sannyasins who were around Osho didn’t get it, including present posters…. the current lot of losers are even more clueless, in love with their computers and Osho at the same time….. Seig Heil Amrito!!! The clueless one!!!

  29. prem bubbie says:

    Gandhi ALMOST visited the ashram…ALMOST doesn’t count.. The most famous celebrity who was a sannyasin and visited the ashram was Terence Stamp..not that no name mentioned above…. How quickly you numb skulls forget Osho’s discourse about the Bhopal disaster… How ” the one’s responsible should be punished” discourse. Selective memories on all of you posters. You can quote Osho about something but there are other quotes that contradict it.. Which means…GO FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF!!! Right Amrito??!! nut scratcher

  30. prem bubbie says:

    Amrito: NEPAL was and still is a poor, stupid, filthy, smelly, third world country… Osho’s presence clearly hasn’t helped anyone… just all a pretense, another excuse to avoid, to raise one’s “quality of life… If I’m going to dance and have a choice of dancing in shit or a warm clean floor, I’ll take a warm clean floor, shit is still shit and that’s where Nepal is still. One dead enlightened man can only do so much. Definitely not enough for Nepal.

  31. prem bubbie says:

    “Something awesome is definitely happening”… After all these years Amrito, all that THC is still there in your brain… brain dead hippie–now who’s stuck in the past??!!

  32. prem bubbie says:

    All of those postings condemning the “resort” and the terrorist Headley. Why not give that guy a chance, hey Amrito? If you think having scummy politicians visit the nepal ashram with WAY more blood on their hands is ok than this guy Headley, you’re more screwed in the head than Meera!!! What hypocrites!!! Mentality impaired, short memory, hypocrites. For a refresher, just read the thread from November about Headley and the resort and read those postings… ANYMORE wise cracks from the peanut gallery?… You so-called “Sannyasins” make me sick….

  33. prem bubbie says:

    please start a new thread… “Give Headley A Chance”…. you want to give mass murderers a chance, why not him?

  34. An excerpt from Osho discourse, Indira in the context of Sheela:

    The tomorrow is open. All the dimensions are open. You can choose anything, and there are instances where murderers have changed and become great saints. This proves the freedom of man.

    So when I had chosen Sheela to be my secretary, my reasons were: the secretary has to be pragmatic, practical in worldly affairs, because she will be taking care of the commune. And she will have to manage the commune amidst a world… she has to be alert and aware about worldly ways.

    She was not very educated, she had no university degree — she has been a waitress in a hotel in America — but I did not want a very intellectual person to be my secretary, because the intellectual person will destroy my messages by his intellect. And I wanted just a parrot — and she was good at doing it.
    But the future is open.

    I went into silence. The direct communication between me and you stopped; she became the only communication. She saw the opportunity, the great opportunity that you love me so much and you trust me so much that whatever message she brings from me you believe it.

    That gave her a clue that you can be exploited, that she can bring any message to you which I have not given. She can change the message and you will trust totally and do it accordingly. That’s why for three and a half years you simply remained unaware of what she was doing. And power has a strange quality. It brings all your hidden desires to the surface. That’s why power corrupts.

    It is not power that really corrupts, it only brings all the corrupted ideas in you to the surface, because power gives you an opportunity to give those ideas a reality. Those dreams can be transformed and materialized.
    And everybody is full of so many unconscious desires, of which he himself is not aware. Only power will show. And it has been happening all through history.

    When Indira Gandhi came to power in India she was innocent, intelligent, not political at all. She had not come from the lowest political levels, fighting, struggling and reaching to the top. That way one becomes very cunning, clever, experienced. She had just got the power because she was the daughter of the first prime minister of India. So she never moved through the power struggle. She had never dreamed about it, she had never thought about it. Her father had never mentioned it.

    But the committee, who was to decide, was in a very difficult position. There was Morarji Desai — who was strong, adamant, stubborn and a perfect idiot. Once he gets into power, he is not going even to listen to the committee who appoints him. And he will do all kinds of stupidities, and there will be no way to prevent him.
    And there were others, but they were all provincial leaders. Only Morarji’s and Indira’s names were national names — Indira’s because she was the daughter of Jawaharlal, and had followed Jawaharlal his whole life, taken care of her father because her mother died very early. And she sacrificed everything for the father. She sacrificed her own husband, abandoned her own husband, because she could not serve these two masters.

    So it was thought that Indira will be good. She is innocent, not political, has never shown any political lust, has never tried to take advantage of her father’s position. It will be good to put her against Morarji Desai, because her father had so much respect and love that certainly she will be chosen.

    And she was chosen. But once she got into power, things started changing. She became almost a dictator at one point.

    She imposed an emergency on the whole country. She forced all the political people into jail. She did whatever she wanted. She dissolved the parliament. She went on postponing the elections. And this was the natural result of all her dictatorial methods — that she has been assassinated by her bodyguards.
    But nobody had any idea that a woman could turn into an Adolf Hitler.

    The same happened in this small commune. You were engaged in creating an oasis in the desert, I was living in isolation and silence — and she had the gap between the two. You were engaged in the work so much, and I was out of contact with you.

    I have never been in any power position in my whole life, and I will never be, because I know something bigger than power. I know something more powerful than power.
    I know love.
    I know trust.

    And I love unconditionally, and I trust unconditionally. And I love and trust even those who are strangers, even those who have done things against me.

    (From Bondage to Freedom
    Chapter #5
    Chapter title: The future is open)

    I know about Indira Gandhi in India. She was very much interested in my ideas — we had a few meetings. She told me, “My power consists in having a few files.”
    I said, “I don’t understand. What do you mean?”
    She said, “I have files against each politician who can be a competitor to me, and he knows that I will immediately expose him before the public, before the court. Rather than becoming the prime minister, he will be behind bars.”
    Those files now are in the hands of her son, Rajiv Gandhi. Rajiv Gandhi was never in politics, but those files are enough: all old politicians are silent, knowing perfectly well that they can be caught and exposed. They have committed every kind of crime.
    You will be surprised… when Indira Gandhi’s son, Sanjay Gandhi, had an accident and died — his plane crashed just near Indira Gandhi’s house, two blocks away — Indira Gandhi rushed there immediately. Naturally, you would think a mother would rush immediately; her son has died. But what she inquired was, “He had some keys with him — where are those keys?” She had not rushed there for Sanjay Gandhi, she had rushed there for those two keys, because those two keys were to all the files containing all the papers against all the Indian politicians.
    In fact, it seems she felt relieved by Sanjay Gandhi’s death, because Sanjay Gandhi was harassing her. It is a well-known fact all over the country — there are eyewitnesses — that once Sanjay Gandhi slapped Indira Gandhi. And it was an everyday thing, they were fighting continuously, because he wanted all those files. Finally, just to keep the peace, she had given him the keys. His death came as a relief; the keys were back with her.
    (From Bondage to Freedom
    Chapter #11)

    The whole world is now ready to live affluently, luxuriously; science is ready to provide you food, clothes, health, medicine, long life — everything. But all scientific projects are ignored; the only projects that are chosen are for war.
    Life seems to be nobody’s interest. Death seems to be immensely attractive.
    I was talking to Indira Gandhi, and I told her, “India is so poor, you cannot hope to become a world power; there is no possibility. You cannot compete with Russia or America. It will take you at least three hundred years to come to where America is now. But in these three hundred years America is not going to just sit and wait for you to pick up speed.
    “In three hundred years America will be nine hundred years ahead of you. Can’t you see this simple thing?”
    She said, “I can see it.”
    I said, “If you can see it, then drop all your projects for an atomic energy commission, and atomic energy plants and nuclear weapons. What nonsense are you doing? You cannot compete with the nuclear powers. If there was any hope I would have said, okay, go ahead; let people starve — they have been starving for millions of years, they can starve a few hundred years more. And anyway, starving or not starving, everybody is going to die; let them die, forget about them. You go ahead and compete.
    “But you have no power to compete. Then will it not be a wise course that India declares itself an international country? that we drop the boundaries, we drop the whole idea that you have to come with a permit into the country, that you need a passport? No, we just open the whole country for the whole world. Whoever wants to come is welcome. We are so poor that we cannot be more poor.
    “But this will be a precedent and this will be a historical moment: one country declaring that it is no longer a nation, that it belongs to the whole world.
    “Anyway you cannot win against China, you cannot win against Russia or America. When you cannot win why not take some other course? Declare, ‘We are defenseless, we dissolve our defense forces, we send our soldiers to the fields, to the factories. We are no longer in the game of war; we drop out of it.”‘
    She said, “But then anybody can attack.”
    I said, “Anybody can attack now — what difference does it make? In fact, then to attack India will become difficult because there will be a worldwide condemnation. A country who declares itself defenseless, drops its arms and goes to the fields and the factories, welcomes everybody who wants to come, to invest, to bring industries, to do anything…. It will be almost impossible for anybody to attack India because the whole world will be against that attacker.
    “You will have so much sympathy and so many friends that nobody will dare. Right now anybody can attack you. And you have been attacked by China already; China already occupies thousands of miles of land and India has not even the guts to raise the question, ‘Please return that land.”‘
    Indira’s father, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, said, “That land is useless, not even grass grows there.” I wrote him a letter, saying, “If not even grass grows there and it is useless, why did you go to war in the first place? You should have told the Chinese, ‘You can occupy as much as you can. Not even grass grows. If you can manage to grow something, good, because for us it is useless anyway. We give it to you as a gift.’
    “That would have been more gentlemanly — to give it to them as a gift, rather than to be defeated. Why did you go to war? Did you come to know it later on — that no grass grows there, that it is wasteland?
    “You can be attacked,” I told Indira. “You have been attacked, so your arms and your armies don’t help. Even the biggest powers have been attacked. We have seen even a powerful nation like Germany defeated, a powerful nation like Japan defeated. We know that for five years Germany went on defeating all big nations, so you don’t count.
    “If you accept my suggestion you come out on top; you prove really wise in the true sense of the word. And you prove that it is not only a saying that India is a country of wisdom; you will prove by this act that you are certainly wise. Where you cannot win, the best way is to drop the whole idea of any fight.”

  35. Kranti says:

    “he has a place to crash after a life in politics ”

    What life oshobob after 86.?.And he is still in politics and not able to come out of it..

  36. Kranti says:

    Nothing wrong in politicians going to Osho meditation center .. Sitting there they talk about / praise each other , Communism , Democarcy crap etc.. Whole day they talk about this nonsense and go to a meditation center and continue the same..

    Do you guys seriously believe these people went there to meditate..Common..It is just business..

    all those quote of kings and spritual leaders coming together always have been out of vested interests

    Yes Osho allowed everyone..But when did he touch a idiots feet?

  37. Kranti says:

    Funny enough.. We are debating whether we need to celebrate Osho birthday at all .. and this 86 year old nut wants to celebrate his birthday at osho center..So much for understanding Osho.. If Tapoban allows it then we know what they are up to …

  38. shantam prem says:

    OK. keeping in mind the historical records, in early nineties during the tenure of Tathagat as ashram in charge, than sitting Prime Minister of India, late Chander Shekhar has visited the ashram.
    Public relation team of the ashram, keerti was also part of this, did a tremendous job to introduce Osho to the creme of Indian society.
    “Friends of Osho” banner was created, i think as per Osho´s instructions. few of the best artists, singers, poets have performed during the celebration days.
    May be it will hurt the fragile ego of western disciples, but one should not forget Osho´s roots were very much in the Indian soil, yet branches were touching the whole world, and who does not want to be approved by their target audience in their home land, the real acknowledgment and recognition and satisfaction comes from the people of the soil.

    Here it will not be in appropriate to mention that Tathagat ( i gave him the name Saddam Hussein) the ” branded thief ” by the military court of Jayesh was fired publically, exactly in the style, Bush Blair team did with the real Saddam.
    And as a observer one could also see the jealousy on the faces of those elites of the ashram, who could not play the prominent role before the people, therefore ” friends of Osho” banner went also in the garbage bin with the celebrations.

    Tiny bitty egos of the highly dehypnotised and meditative disciples have killed the bigger picture.

    To kill the bird and to eat it is not such a big thing, but to chop the wings so that he cannot fly and remains confined to the roof is worse than non vegetarianism.

    The bird with the clipped wings is what one sees now as, “Osho´s work”. Cage is beautiful, there are even servents from a muti national company to take care of the feeding work, what more one needs!

    prem “bubble” farts.

    U are an idiot.

    No more, no less.

    Love,
    Amrito.

  40. frank says:

    says keerti(gleaned from the “akashik records” no doubt):
    “down the centuries the enlightened ones in india have always had kings as their disciples”

    is that why india is a vast open toilet where the vast majoriy of the population are treated like and live like dogs?
    did these “enlightened ones” ok the caste system?
    women as chattels?
    etc etc.

    i would have thought that you guys would have had enough of “religion”after centuries of all that.
    but,no,its on with the robe,light some incense to cover the smell of human excement,grow thw beard and say:
    “but india is the most holy”

    it`s sad,pathetic,really.

    politicians should ban the building of temples and build public toilets instead.
    if you want to feel holy,you can have statues of the gods in there with you while you`re on the pot.

  41. Dhanyam says:

    Dear Friends,

    I wonder if everyone has forgotten the 1993 visit of the Dalai Lama to the Osho Commune.

    Love to you all,

    Dhanyam

  42. amrito says:

    oh, and Prem Bubble Farts (english translation: Love Bubble Farts):

    your filthy slandor of Nepal has little substance: the country is poor because much of the population is involved in substinence farming (pretty clean) and within the bigger city, Katmandu, the price parity is not so bad either. It has little to do with any type of “dirty” atmosphere, because the country still attracts thousands of tourists who find it much cleaner than many parts of India.

    Enough said on this, but I go back to my opening statement:

    prem “bubble” farts.

    U are an idiot.

    No more, no less.

    Love,
    Amrito.

  43. oshobob says:

    Dhanyam asks,

    “I wonder if everyone has forgotten the 1993 visit of the Dalai Lama to the Osho Commune.”

    Most probably, they have forgotten. Long ago. Because the Dalai Lama has made a career out of visiting soft pro-Dalai Lama venues over his 50 year global juggernaut of dropping-in to places such as this, with little actual content involved in the visit. His side job is writing book prefaces to pro-Dalai Lama books in the West, also thankfully without much lasting effect.

    But Dhanyam, I was thinking….

    Why don’t you invite California Governor Arnold Swartznegger to Osho Viha Meditaion Center for a birthday celebration of some past California governors….like say…uh…Ronald Reagan, and ….”Tricky Dicky” Nixon. That would be a real PR coup, maybe it would even generate some revenue to help resurrect the floundering Viha Connection Magazine, give some legitamacy to the US Osho scene, and help increase attendance at your Bay area Osho events. That would be somethng to see for sure, CNN filming the event, Arnie and Dhanyam arm-in-arm with a big photo of Osho in the background. Yahoo, baby, Yahoo! Maybe you could get some ex-Black Panther celebs from Oakland to join in the festivities…

  44. oshobob says:

    Just be careful, Dhanyam, if Swartznegger gives you a full body hug, ala Humaniversity-style…you know, Arnie, though past his prime, could probably crush you between his massive pectorals and bulging biceps! Be alert! Be aware! ….especially of California governors in photo-shoots…

  45. frank says:

    yes bob,
    but india has always been different.

    in india,i kid you not,it is illegal to be naked even in your own bathroom.

    yet,there are religious “holymen”,nagababas and jainas who wander around on permanent pilgrimage stark-staring butt-naked……

    “religion”

    if you are a guy,you can shit anywhere you like,no one will bat an eyelid,
    but try kissing or even touching a girl in public–ouch!

    i can testify on both points……

    actually,having a crap on a piece of wasteland with about seventy others is really relaxing…
    i would recommend it to any american as a kind of therapy……

    every country has itsown madness.

    at least in india,they wash their asses when they go for a shit.
    in the west people kind of smear it away with paper,hoping there`s none left and walking aroung with a smear of crap working its way onto their pants all day.

    say what you like about amrito,but inventing that squirty thing for cleaning your backside was the work of true genius.
    then maybe a bit of paper to mop up.
    east meets west…

  46. What’s wrong if politicians visit Tapoban Ashram.

    Real thing is their inner consciousness.

    In India, Many enlightened Masters like krishna, rama, Janak were kings and they remain king till they left their body.

    In fact meditators should join politics.. why not???
    Meditation in the marketplace was the main message of Osho then why not meditate in parliament also.

    A politician also has the right to Osho wisdom.

  47. Osho is coming in mainstream and becoming more accepted.
    its a good step and should be appreciated. I think this way. May be I am wrong.

    I also feel, If intelligent people become politicians of country then much good will come out of it. Becayse if politics can spoil the meditative state of a meditator then the meditator was still not ripe.

    Or the meditator should at least influence the inner working and life styles of rulers.

    In old times, Kings used to send their princess to the ashrams so that they can learn art of living.

    From an ancient times rulers are visiting the ashrams and gaining insights from sages.

    It is good that Nepal is continuing the trend.

  48. Just because Osho has condemned politicians does not mean that we should also condemn them.

    Please see the context.

    P.S Indira Gandhi had met Jiddu Krishnamurti many times and took many insights from him.

  49. oshobob says:

    right Amitabh, there is surely nothing wrong with a politician going to an Osho center, but it looks like those Nepalese politicos did not go to do Dynamic Meditation or watch an Osho video, or buy some books, or participate in some groups. It looked like a well staged standard political photo-op, everyone snapping their digital cameras, 5-minute speeches, leis around the necks for proper greeting protocol, and then back in the cars, with the security contingent scanning the crowd with squinty eyes, before the motorcade takes off again for Kathmandu. Job done.

  50. oshobob says:

    But of course, behind the scenes, who knows what occurred…only the people who designed and produced the event know that. What we see is only the surface level media PR. Standard fare in the world of Osho, and the world of no-Osho too…

  51. frank says:

    look if these guys need to kiss a bit of political ass to survive,whats the problem?
    that`s life.
    give out a few “in ancient times the kings and politicians went to ashrams blabla”…press releases,
    and everyone can just relax into their hindu mindstream….
    and the heavily armed goons and their bosses can go home feeling blessed and thinking they`ll be well sorted in their next life…….
    what`s the problem?

    and when they have gone, close the doors and have a bloody good laugh.
    i would.

  52. oshobob says:

    i think we’re on the same page frank, it seems to be a successful event all the way round…Arun may well turn out to be showing his considerable skills as a very savvy street don, a quite practical man lurking behind the chuckling Nepalese Santa Claus veneer….and he does it all wearing that orange hooded sweatshirt, looking somewhat like a homeboy from Compton, with a grizzled white beard…

  53. Anand says:

    Sannyasnews editor; I understand you like to keep this forum an open forum, but the foul language continuous pouring out of poor Prem Bubbies so called brain,
    makes visiting your side very uninviting. Maybe some kind of decent form of language should be introduced and Prem Bubbie could be given some time out to meditate on his insulting style of Language.
    He obviously hates sannyas and has only absolute negativity and insult to offer.
    His entertainment factor is also zero. I think you would do sannyasnews some good to keep a certain quality of discussion. His style will keep serious participants away from your otherwise interesting platform.

  54. frank says:

    well,oshobob.
    now that nepal is cruising to a state of full enlightenment all round,i would say it must be time for a celebratory rap from
    tthat hell-raisin hard-core hindu homey
    from da buddha `hood…
    the man from da maoist moonwalker massive
    the groovin gurkha gangsta guru
    the one and only
    kat-man-dude

    yo amrit-yo
    let`s hear it.

  55. prem bubbie says:

    Only to Anand and Amrito are my statements negative… if you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen… Are you a fascist Anand? Sounds like it…. only pure thoughts and language are allowed… Your new name shall be… Swami Anand Sensor… you and Amrito can fight for the honors… Are you two conjoined twins? Amrito, the swami from the north american cesspool called Canada.. the home of the wimps weak men with no back bone… or a back bone made of jello… a place befitting the imbecile swami amrito…. Anand… are you a scientist, a professor, work in a lab… you talk like such a person.. “Analyzing”, “Processing”, have you tried out for any hollywood films that need computer voice overs or robots? You talk like a robot not like a person… You obviously played with too many test tubes and bunson burners when you were a kid… get away from that lab and get out in the real world and live life…. that’s your meditation assignment for the next decade. It’s so nice to tweek you and Amrito in the nose… seeing whether all your meditating has actually worked… Very apparent that it hasn’t. You guys are still hypocrites. That’s my fart specially delivered to you both… Merry Christmas Amrito look up the meaning of “Imbecile”… very befitting

  56. shantam prem says:

    Bubbie,
    Please stop writing like a street bull.
    When Meera uses some kind of abusive tone, there is some female grace. To stay in the kitchen and to feel heat is one thing, but to swallow rotten omlate is nobody´s choice.

  57. prem bubbie says:

    The rest of you… stop avoiding my point… How about allowing Headley the terrorist into any ashram or center? Whenever he gets out of prison that is.. You are so quick to reap praise on politicians, who are the true yet subtly disguised terrorists, rolling out the welcome mat for them, yet decry the resort’s acceptance of the alleged terrorist Headley. Now who is full of shit here? Are you clowns too chicken, too full of ego and pride to see your own hypocrisy ? What I see in this so called “sannyas” movement is it’s very herd like… very much into fads… What the rest of the crowd does, I’ll do, type of action… no individuality, no sincerity, integrity…. Sannyasins are more like cows than humans… or is it that humans en mass are genetically predisposed to be herd-like and can’t help themselves… My post I think, has brought that to light… with responses from Anand, Amrito, shantam Prem, Garimo, Amitabh, Keerti… all exposed for their hypocrisy and herd like actions…. Is this what the Real sannyas community is like? Sannyasnews editors just encouraging those people with it’s archaic and infantile headlines and discussion threads… Let it continue… I love watching clowns continue puttting their foot in their mouths… or How about a new sannyasnews team… I nominate Sw. Kranti as the new Editor- in – chief of Sannyasnews…. I think he’ll take it to great heights, with much more common sense and intelligent approach and postings. Frank as associate editor… very refreshing to read his thoughts… You like them apples– Anand? Can you tame that little hitler inside you? There are plenty of other webs sites that would suit you fine…..

  58. prem bubbie says:

    Shantam Prem– time for a reality check… and learn “English” Please… Is that nice enough for you? Reality check= everyone has a choice

  59. prem bubbie says:

    Are you a fascist too Shantam… I shall write as I see fit… Seig Heil!!!!!

  60. prem bubbie says:

    One’s street bull is another’s santa claus… giving gifts of mysterious wonder!!!!

  61. Amrito says:

    Bubbies gotta go!! he’sa lunatic!!

  62. Amrito says:

    hahaha:

    “Amrito, the swami from the north american cesspool called Canada.. the home of the wimps weak men with no back bone… or a back bone made of jello… a place befitting the imbecile swami amrito”

    So you don;t like, but u start to bash all canadians? Who’s the fascist? Maybe Hitler didn’t like one Jew and than decided to kill 6 million! Who’s the fascist?

    Get rid of this douchebag please!!

  63. frank says:

    hey,cool it guys.
    i know you north americans are very cultured and that,with your fluent french(douchebag,imbecile)-its very impressive indeed.
    and your bar-fly manners are second to none.
    you guys really must give me your contact numbers,i could put your skills to good use at my mother-in-law`s next birthday party……..

  64. Anand says:

    Prem Bubbie has nothing to offer. he is just a big ‘stink’. What he does though is destroying the sannyas news. Why should I continue reading and offering opinions and materials to sannyasnews, when sannyasnews presents the gutter. That is the reason behind Prem Bubbies existence. He hates sannyas and Osho, probably working for some obscure government agency or ultra right church group. I am personally checking out of any theme, where Prem Bubbie is featured. In my personal life I do not need to deal with low lives!
    There are some nice people here, interesting opinions. I am busy working on a huge real estate development in Florida for a few months and even the most ‘simple’ handymen on my team have a higher grace and consciousness then Prem Bubbie. Bye-Bye.

  65. Dhanyam says:

    OshoBob writes, “the floundering Viha Connection Magazine,”

    Hi Bob, Avinasho here, “the other half” of Viha. Where do you get that the Viha Connection is floundering? We are doing just fine, thank you very much. Just mailed out a beautiful Jan/Feb issue and already working on our March/April one.

    And why all the sarcasm?

  66. vistar says:

    What a Joke?!!

    Is Tapoban a real terrrorist camp? All these people are as far away from meditation or grace or beauty?

    I wonder if Arun gave Prachanda a copy of Osho book, Beaware of Communism!!!!

    Bet he hid it! instead!!!

  67. Kranti says:

    ” in india,i kid you not,it is illegal to be naked even in your own bathroom.

    yet,there are religious “holymen”,nagababas and jainas who wander around on permanent pilgrimage stark-staring butt-naked……

    Frank..you seem to know India better than many Indians do.. you get it right everytime you say something about India.. Unfortunately with the kind of things you say you can be representative for the ‘ Indian shining ‘ campaign.. You will spoil the party with all these great understanding about India

    ” and when they have gone, close the doors and have a bloody good laugh.
    i would.”

    Way to go.. I will do the same.. Osho would be happy if i can do that..

  68. Kranti says:

    ” you can NOT be representative for the ‘ Indian shining ‘ campaign “

  69. Krishnananda says:

    Some people here need some really good dynamic meditation.

  70. prem bubbie says:

    What a raw nerve(EGO), I’ve hit with those two guys…. Even with my past insults to Meera, she was able to dish it back often effectively with her madness… these two losers….now who’s whining and crying like babies… with all of that meditating… hasn’t done much….egos hurt… phd’s, college degrees, all mean shit… head full of pride… meditation, awareness nowhere to be found… useless words coming from useless people. Hey Hey, Hey, Ho Ho… bubbies got to go!!! Meera… I salute your honesty in your madness…

  71. prem bubbie says:

    Now… anyone want to get back to more important matters? please response to the points I’ve made about politicians and Headley… What no response…. The truth does hurt…. being shown one’s own hypocrisy…. Krishnananda: Dynamic meditation isn’t good enough….much more is needed!!!! First, try sincerity, integrity, common sense…. then intensive meditating… and also try leaving “being in denial” behind.

  72. prem bubbie says:

    What can’t handle curse words and insults… definitely the milquetoast type… spineless jelly fish.

  73. prem bubbie says:

    nicely said Kranti… it does also translate to Nepal

  74. prem bubbie says:

    Huge real estate development in Florida… so Anand, you’re one of those jackasses who go us into this great depression.. that so called real estate boom…and BUST!!! Great going… you greedy bastard!!!! Empty shells you are building, just like what’s up in your skull…. How about developing in India or thailand or Rhwanda for that matter… what no money to make… no one to rip off? Jokers like you need to be sent to some desert island and left there to wither away…. your true greedy colors are finally shown… I smelled a rat long ago with your dumb ass posts. glad you have come clean and have shown everyone what you really are.. a greedy, selfish, conceited joke of a human, who’ll strip the world of it’s beauty just to make a profit.. Where’s E.L.F when you need them? Hey guys there’s another development going up…. more highways, malls, cars, crime, pollution, anyone else want to add to this list….

  75. prem bubbie says:

    Sannyasins who are environmentally conscious need to be aware of the true identities of some who post here. One of the posters has been exposed. E.L.F.= Earth Liberation Front; for those who wondered it’s meaning.

  76. oshobob says:

    keep ‘em honest bubbie!
    some hard-hitting exposes and targeted arrows of focused criticism of the sannyas community, for sure.
    let’s keep Bubbs online!
    Long live Prem Bubbie!

  77. shantam prem says:

    Anand, have you postponed your Poona visit as you mentioned above being busy with real estate project in Florida.

    Please let the OFI people in NY about your expertise. May be they will need someone for the second branch of Osho Meditation Resorts International in USA.

    Imagine Deepak Chopra leading a training of “Auervedic Clitoric Massage” at the resort. It will beat the record participation in the trainings of Tibetan Pulsation Healing lead by another fellow American Swami Dheeraj.

  78. prem bubbie says:

    Dhanyam and Avinasho, My sources tell me that there are actually two sannyas communities in the Bay area. One is, the obnoxiously rich, snobby, conceited, bored and crybaby community in Mill Valley, the other, all the rest of the sannysins who actually work for a living. Very cliquish indeed!!!. Do you actually love Osho or do you print the magazine because you are bored and don’t know what else to do with yourselves? Just wondering…. Merry Christmas!!!!

  79. prem bubbie says:

    The past and present sannyas community: One hand thinks it’s the ultimate in spirituality, the other hand, doing dirty deeds. At most the “spiritual” hand is “spiritual” for an hour a day, 5 days a week at most. While the other hand is doing dirty deeds for 23 hours 7 days a week minus sleep time of course… Something doesn’t jive here… Maybe I haven’t learned the “New” math…invented by George Bush… How can the “New” man ever be born? Keep up the delusion, sannyasins…. we are running out of time on this earth.

  80. prem bubbie says:

    Shantam Prem You are mad.. concerned about records being broken..,. what petty bullshit… who gives a shit? Expertise? On how to bankrupt the worlds economy… with bloated,wasteful developments… it’s all just taking cash from one pocket and putting it in another. How many millions of people are without food and shelter because of those greedy bastards… you might try pulling up your blinds and see what’s been going on lately… another dumb ass.

  81. prem bubbie says:

    Need more time in Florida… to get some poor sucker to sign a contract… meditation must wait…. to get some more “borrowed” money… my pockets are so deep… need more time to fill them.. before I go and pretend some more in Poona. How much of that government bailout money did you get Anand? Be honest… so we can send you the bill…

  82. prem bubbie says:

    Didn’t you work for Dubai? Aren’t they broke too… no oil there, just real estate developments….. $40 Billion and counting… expertise… yeah right!!!!

  83. oshobob says:

    Ma Avinasho, welcome to sannyasnews!

    Your two questions…

    “Where do you get that the Viha Connection is floundering?”

    From Viha Connection itself. Your husband Dhanyam penned a donation plea awhile back in your magazine, explaining because of the economic crisis and rising production costs, Viha Connection was in need of donations from subscribers to stay afloat. If that ain’t floundering, then I don’t know what is. You might want to give an ear to Bubbie, and learn the benefits of transparency, honesty, and all the rest that he talks about…If you’re broke, just admit it. I do.

    Many newpapers in the States are folding just because of these reasons. And the internet. If you can get something immediate, and free, and have an instantaneous post globally, who needs the slow train from Brownsville, with a lead-time of months to publication. Who sends a letter in the mail anymore?

    And to your second query…

    “And why all the sarcasm?”

    Because I’m American. My personality is saturated with the Jewish sarcastic humor template that I grew up with. You can ask your “other half”, Dhanyam about that. As one of his favorite comedians is Groucho Marx, by his own admission here on sannyasnews, I’m sure you know something about it. Grouch Marx, along with all the jokes that you print in your Viha Connection magazine, are venues dripping with sarcasm. Along also with your master Osho’s jokes that he used, to good purpose, to fill most of his “discourses”. All sarcastic…all Jewish….in fact, all American, most of them. I had read most of those jokes, in one form or another, in American joke books by the time I was 15 years old. Almost all compiled by American Jews.

    Why are Jews sarcastic? Ask Dhanyam. Probably a survival mechanism from way back.

    And also, Avinasho, if you are considering bringing on frank here from sannyasnews to write for your magazine, and you are touchy about sarcasm, then, ….uh, you might rethink that. frank, bless his cynical soul, is probably one of the most sarcastic, funny writers I have ever read. You’re wary of sarcastic humor…well then, fire frank before you even hire him.

    I think the Brits took Jewish sarcasm and refined it to it’s most subte form…they call it “sardonic” i believe. Understated, witty, and devastating. As long as you’re not the target, it’s just hilarious…and if you can laugh at it directed toward yourself, then you’re most probably near enlightenment…next stop, Nepal!

  84. garimo says:

    I had a housemate a couple years back. He was back from Iraq- was Desert Storm the first Bush war?… anyway when he moved in he said he had a anger problem and no one in his family would speak to him. And we just decided to see how it’s go, but is didn’t take long to learn why people would speak to him. He was able to take any thing from a conversation and turn it into the most meanest thing. Everything could be turned into some weapon to attack with and always in the most meanest ways possible.

    After he got kicked out of school because of his violence… one of his brothers showed up one day and took him away.

  85. garimo says:

    learn why people would *not* speak to him.

  86. Amrito says:

    haha…im surprised how some people like the taste of rotten swami bubble gum.

    To each their own. But Bubba, can’t you write your shit on one post instead of vomiting three or four consecutive posts?

    So long Prem Bubble Farts !

    -Amrito

  87. sannyasnews says:

    Thanks Keerti for your earlier post, appreciated. The most revealing part of it was that Osho did meet Indira Gandhi at her own residence, so he certainly did not block her interest in him just because she was a politician. Also I remember, as you do, that Osho met the Mayor of Poona (in 1987?) so what Arun is doing is not so off key if judged by his own Master – whatever the Prem Bubbles of this world think.
    Anyone can reach, it doesn’t matter what their background.

  88. Sudarshi says:

    Awesome way to go Tapovan…. beautiufl PR nothing wrong with that… how many others may be inspired to check it out having seen the big wigs visit… isn’t this what everyone wants… the message being spread??

  89. prem bubbie says:

    Even the terrorist Headley Sannyasnews? Sure, anyone can”redeem” themselves… please answer my question… How about Headley? If so, say it, enough with your hesitation. Either way, admit your hypocrisy. another example why the sannyas movement continually fails.

  90. prem bubbie says:

    As a note to Anand and Amrito… Your threats to have me banned or you’ll stop reading and posting reminds me when my 10 year old sister used to shout threats like that… “Either he goes or I go”….. Such infantile behavior from “spiritual aware” sannyasins.

  91. prem bubbie says:

    Who thinks everything Osho did was perfect? His mistake and laxmi and Sheela’s was to deal with and bribe public officials and politicians. Any blind person can see that…Osho’s experiment did fail, why is that so hard to swallow? I think it’s from the sannyasin arrogance as I stated above. Learn fro mistakes and move on, something the sannyas movement has not done, not at all. Bursting one’s artificially created bubble is tough to take but swallow your pride and move on. Sannaysnews can’t do that, it’s so stuck in the past and glorifying it , it can’t see the tail that they are chasing. Are you guys so uncreative that you have to keep rehashing the past? Time to call a spade a spade even when it deals with sannyasins or ashrams or centers…. NO ONE is beyond criticism whether it’s a ashram leader(s) or group leader(s). I see sannyasin web sites as sites where you can stroke each others egos, kind of like petting a dog on the head and saying “good boy, good boy”, even though the dog just bit somebody on the leg. Stop the ego nurturing and start some ego busting instead. move forward and not backward… Soon the sannyas movement will be back in the Dark Ages. Osho did tell us to walk away after his death and to find a new master.. How about doing one better and being our own master?

    Bubbie, i am sure your sister when she was 10, she was no infant, you are still.
    Any way, when was the last time, Bubbie was nortured by a Puppie?
    No joke, it is serious question.

  93. prem bubbie says:

    That’s the problem, you’re all too serious!!!! stroking the egos as you post, nothing real, afraid to explore , afraid to challenge…. By the way, that was a nice story about yourself Garimo, no wonder you’re still hiding in the mountains. shantam prem, do you have an address? I like to send you a christmas present- an English dictionary!!!! Still waiting for an intelligent response from Sannyasnews. Frozen up with fear I guess.

  94. oshobob says:

    to address your question, Bubbie, on whether Headley, the so-called terrorist, should be allowed in an Osho Center, I would say, yes, yes, a thousand times yes!

    My view is Headley is simply a US/Global government agent. Never took part in any terrorism. At the end of the day he just has a few beers with his bro’s at the local police bar in Chicago, laughin’ it up at the whole joke. So, yes, let ‘im in. Police guys could make good sannyasins. In fact, many of the real undercover CIA sannyasins might be closer to Osho than the normal sannyasins that came to the master for other individual reasons — and there are many (reasons, that is).

    As to the Nepal situation, with the so-called “Maoist” group, that could very well be a hoax very similar to the Islamic “terrorist” thing that is being propagated by the global media in the last decade. Not much content there, maybe even non-existent. So let the Nepal Maoist Prachanda in too. He’s probably an OK joe.

  95. prem bubbie says:

    I appreciate your response and support, you are only one of a few who “get it”. I would like a response from sannyasnews though, they’ll don’t seem to get it or are afraid to get it!!

  96. prem bubbie says:

    I recently looked back a few years and read many sannyasnews stories; before they allowed comments to be posted; as I went from story to story an epiphany happened. Since the ranch days of Rajneesh Times, until the present sannyasnews, most stories have been about sannyasins who became “successful “, about this person becoming a tv director, another, some sort of group leader, so on and so forth. I even came upon a web story last year about german so- called sannyasin movie director named Marcus Nispel. What dawned on me was that story after story it was about some schmuck yelling out, “Look everyone, I’m a success”!!! “Look what I learned from living on the ranch”!! Now what ever happened to taking Osho’s advice, advice that he repeated constantly… about being a nobody, about not letting society exploit you? Reigning in the ego…meditativeness, awareness, love? I guess it went the way of Osho’s request that after he died, for us to walk away, find another master…. Sannyasins have seemed to have picked his easiest advice to take.. like burning his body after his death, setting up a circle of 15 to oversee the ashram operations. Doing those things required no more effort than wiping one’s own ass!!! The real successful sannyasin in my opinion is the one who is unsuccessful. No gloating, or smugness, not being a pompous ass. How can being a succesfull tv director or producer or being an advertising executive be a positive? To me those professions are a half step above politician or religious leader. Did so many sannyasins learn from their time on the ranch or pune for that matter, the art of deception , coercion, manipulation… or the art of sucking cash out of another person’s pocket and into their own? Giving the current headlines and posts I think so. What happened to, giving one’s energy to repairing all the damage we have done to the earth and other lifeforms… What happened to living life in simplicity, sincerity, and awareness with our actions? Making tons of money is not a success, whether done by creating Ponzi schemes, tarot card reading, bribing government officials, selling some New Age cancer cure….the list is endless and all either pioneered or used by most sannyasins so they can be successful “in other sannyasins eyes”!!!! Movie director Marcus Nispel, don’t remember his sannyas name, became a success by directing slasher films. Now how contrary to Osho’s vision is that… All of that energy used to further promote vicious violence… Something is wrong here when all that meditating done on his part, all that love supposedly absorbed from Osho goes to making films about insane violence!!! That’s being real meditative of you, Marcus!!! Is this your ego’s claim to fame? Is this what you really care about, your hollywood success? Nispel is well known in hollywood as the “manifesto guru”. real S.O.B. dictator as reported by actors who have worked for him. Do most Germans have Brain Receptors defect? I wonder. Sannyasnews can do a great deal to promote sannyas growth and expose the hypocisy of the sannyasin community. You can start by not doing sannyasin “success” stories for one, along with other ego boosting propaganda.. Let’s see if you can call a spade a spade, even just once.

  97. prem bubbie says:

    In addition, One swami who claimed success after the ranch said that working in security helped him with what is important and what is not important…. OH really, the same security that was about to kill fellow sannyasins up in Osho’s house? That paranoid sheela security apparatus!!! Enough said on that one.

    I did do a short bio of myself, you old prune shantam. I was honest , something you so-called sannyasins are unfamiliar with, the insults rang from you characters louder than St. Basilica’s Christmas church bells. Talking about hypocrisy…. I laid out the sannyasin community continual hypocrisy over the years, present included. you people are so blind and so much in denial, only the catholic church tops the sannyas organization. You so called sannyasins have an intelligence level of a house plant and honesty that rivals Richard Nixon. Your memory span lasts only a few seconds at best, worse than any Alzheimer’s patient, a new mental disease could be named after Osho sannyasins, perhaps it can be called “Sannyas Wasting Syndrome”. I have a theory, i believe in reincarnation; I believe that when all of those Nazis, those SS, and Gestapo agents died, they were reincarnated as Sannyasins, not all sannyasins, a few are intelligent, but most.. What else can explain all of the shit that flies around the current sannyas community? Shantam, I’ve got some B vitamins for sale, for you and Amrito’s memory loss, I need to make a big profit so i’ll charge you double the regular price……

  105. prem bubbie says:

    No Amrito, I am not bitter or angry, I just took Osho’s advice to heart and am a nobody… pretty simple…. now you are so obvious… Anyone can smell your farts a mile away, no problem… Some more insults pending… Enough craws in your side for now.

  106. prem bubbie says:

    Shantam, with your use of English; is it some new dialect from India that you speak? Hey can anybody decipher her english? Any dictionaries around? Translators? You type, type and type jumbled words that make sense only in a bowl of Alphabet Soup!!

    LOL bubble farts, you seriously have me believing you are Meera’s alter ego or something.

    I can just picture you freaking out when you read these posts than go for a walk, come back, and freak out a little more with another post. Than you do this a couple of times more until u pass out, wake up a few hours later, see someone’s response, and start it all over again.

    Btw, i remember reading you are against facebook, msn etc, so LOL stands for *Laugh out Loud* (which I really am doing!).

    That’s a very rogue thought, Alok, that you and Bubbie have about the Third Reichian Reincarnation Theory. I don’t have any belief or experience in the sliding of slippery souls through the swamp of time, but it is unique, that thought.

    Do you think the Italian sannyasins were recycled Mussolini people? Where did all the Jewish sannyasins come from — Osho said 40% of his people were Jews. What about the British? And Americans?

    Also, how does the gender thing factor in, in this story — Osho has said that when a person is reincarnated, the sex changes, man to woman, and woman to man — usually anyway. Does that mean, in your view on this, that the German women were the SS and Nazi men that were running amuk in the 30′s and 40′s?

    Please, expand and clarify your most intriguing hypothesis.

    To answer my theory of sannyasin reincarnation; I just could not come up with any other explanation for the sheer insanity of most sannyasins… Oshobob, do you have any idea why sannyasins keep tripping over themselves with two left feet and not wanting to admit they are doing so? Please help.

  113. sannyasnews says:

    Anyone can come to a genuine Master. In fact the more the seeker has seen of life the other side of the wire the better. This was clearly Osho’s view. There were all sorts of renegades in Pune one, people who had no where else to go, and also for that matter Alok many who thought that groups were just jerking off, and never went near them, but lived by the river and just came for the discourses. They were not excluded from the gateless gate. They included ex CIA agents, ex soildiers who had done a lot of killing, and a whole bunch of Dickension criminals of all sorts, many whom had seen the inside of a prison cell. They were definitely among the most “human” human beings I have ever met, before or since.
    Everything depends on the motivation of the seeker. It is not that someone like Headley is an invitee, it is if someone like Headley invites himself then the answer can never be no.
    It is not clear who or what Prem Bubble stands for. She or he is certainly very angry about something. From what I have read she has a view about sannyasins as a “group” or community, which frankly does not exist. It is the most individualistic bunch of people I have ever met, and leads me to think that Prem Bubble may not have so much experience really of sannyas – or of life.

  114. prem bubbie says:

    Canada used to be known for being the “world’s happiest” country. Here in the U.S.A. we are pretty fucked up, no question, worse than the sannyas community as a whole. Canada has also mastered the word”denial”. Up in their great northwest, land the size of a small country is being destroyed, all for the sake of oil, it’s called the great oil sand region. British Columbia, Vancouver Island included, is been quickly clear-cut. The forests destroyed, makes the Brazilian rain forest look like virgin land. Its government bought and paid for by the clear-cut forest industry, oil and gas corporations, and mineral exploitation companies. The native Indians, particularly in British Columbia, and Quebec are treated worse than dogs and for such a long time. Their lands conveniently and quickly, “appropriated”, for national “good” of course, so “natural resources” can be extracted. Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, crime rates and violence have exploded….. Now Mr. Anus Amrito, care to challenge these things about cananda? Canadians are professionals when it comes to denial and Public Relations spin. Canada, the “world’s happiest” country….NOT…. Is that why you live there? One delusional person amongst million of others…..How long are you going to continue to fool yourself? Your ideas on what “success” means is an important clue. Cheers, Canuck

  115. prem bubbie says:

    Sannyasnews… In denial, AGAIN!!!! Sannyasins.. is a group, THINKING it’s full of individuals.. Nothing else can explain the actions and results of Pune 1, THE RANCH, Pune 2, 3 and current stupidity of the community of “INDIVIDUALS”. Those “human” humans that were sannyasins stayed around too long and their energy seeped in to the fabric of the building Osho was trying to create. Since when are murderers and thugs the “most human of human beings? Years of being screwed up in the head isn’t going to be cured by doing hour long meditations or some groups, regardless of what you think. You’ve got gyroscope problems pal!!! Osho’s meditations are just primers, appetizers so one gets a taste.. Way more is needed for a cure, something you and most sannyasins can’t seem to want to do, out of laziness, I suspect.. Osho is the “Lazy Man’s Guru”, by his own admission…..Time for you at sannyasnews to drop sannyas for a time and see the “real’ world, get your bearings straight and come back home. Your post is probably the most moronic post I’ve read so far. The so called “sannyas” life has in fact clouded your brain receptors, get out of the closet and live life, and not by any so-called dogma you hold dear.

  116. prem bubbie says:

    I can understand how the early christians screwed things up just after Christ’s death, same with Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, so on and so on…. No audio or video tapes to hear and see the guru… Memory does fade and people inject their own words for words that were actually spoken by the guru,there are many reasons and excuses. Humans aren’t a bright bunch to begin with. Now comes along a guy, with even more powerful stuff to share, audio and video tapes rolling, words then transcribed to paper then to print.. Also practical meditation advice given and practiced… Now this guy’s gone… tapes still around… yet the followers of this guy are dumber than those sheep herders and camel jockeys from 2000 years ago. Practically every step these current disciples take, they shoot themselves in the foot, not only presently, but when the guru was still living.. disciples with university degrees, phd’s m.d.’s living like some cattle rustlers from the old american west. Now, who are/were the imbeciles?

  117. Alok john says:

    Bob says : “Do you think the Italian sannyasins were recycled Mussolini people?”

    I dunno. Osho says somewhere that most people are reincarnated just down the road after death. They go to the nearest available womb where two people are copulating. So quite often Italians get reincarnated in Italy etc.

    Bob said “Where did all the Jewish sannyasins come from — Osho said 40% of his people were Jews.”

    I am sure there were disproportional numbers of jewish sannyasins compared to their numbers on the planet, but I think 40% is a gross exaggeration.

    The editor writes “There were all sorts of renegades in Pune one, people who had no where else to go, and also for that matter Alok many who thought that groups were just jerking off, and never went near them, but lived by the river and just came for the discourses. They were not excluded from the gateless gate. They included ex CIA agents, ex soildiers who had done a lot of killing, and a whole bunch of Dickension criminals of all sorts, many whom had seen the inside of a prison cell.”

    So we have renegades, killers and criminals in Pune 1. People with no where else to go. So maybe they were continuing in Pune where they had left off in their past lives?

    I agree with Bubbie that first generation Western sannyasins are a very odd bunch indeed. Not all, but many of them.

    I remember one lady who took up “Nutritional Healing.” She would say straightfaced “All illnesses can be cured with the correct nutrition.” Now everyone knows this is nonsense, but she was never challenged in the sannyas world. You see this sort of thing a lot.

    I think it is good that all these difficult people came to Osho. Maybe the guy who makes slasher movies would be a real life slasher if he had not gone to Osho. And the person who practices unethical third rate psychotherapy, would have been involved in serious criminal fraud if he had not met Osho.

    It is/was good these people came to Osho… like you said Alok, no one challenges anybody when OBVIOUS stupidity and violence occurs. This i see is the new human, having some “cajones”-balls, guts and as Osho lectured- “steel in one’s toes”. Not ass licking, not the dominate/submissive head games, not the “no questions asked” mentality.. We are living on this earth.. How about making it a paradise, which we are fully capable of doing, spiritual or supposedly enlightened groups claim to be the torch bearers of the “new and intelligent “way of living, so far not one group has proven themselves to be just that… Osho sannyasins especially.. the denial continues… until its too late I’m afraid.

    In the world of capitalism, if I were a ceo of a company, let’s say a real estate company selling condos, and I were only able to sell 5 or 10 condos out of 100,000, I would be fired, in a spit second. A complete “failure”. now why are these “gurus’, over the course of maybe 10,000 years are held up as “gods”, great beings, and successful? Maybe a few hundred thousand people and that’s a BIG maybe, have gone on to bigger and better things or places- “enlightened” as some would say, from taking these gurus’ advice. Now for those “success” minded freaks, Anand and Amrito included, these gurus are actually failures, Osho included. A bitter pill to swallow. For over thousands of years, tens of billions of people being incarnated, only a handful actually benefited. How about dropping gurus altogether and going solo- one can’t do any worse!!!

  121. oshobob says:

    Bubbs has got a good point there on the numbers thing…

    There are today over 6 and 3/4 billion human beings alive on this planet. Rough figures from the US Census Bureau estimate that about 350,000 babies are born on the Earth every day. Every day!

    Is the Osho world keeping pace with this torrent, or is it backsliding day by day into obscurity? Most sannyasins never had children, as to Osho’s wishes, and they are not much of the missionary bent, so it’s not to hard to see that there is definitely a problem here.

    200 enlightened sannyasins was the number floated up by Osho to do the job of seeding the globe with the right stuff, spiritually speaking, but when is this impending wildfire going to spark off? Seems like most sannyasins are just coasting along, waiting to go “ashtray” — into that wild blue yonder…

    Correct me if I’m wrong here.

  122. Murali says:

    There are only about 200 ( to keep the math simple) countries in the world. If Osho Tapoban is able to spark off the wild fire in Nepal ( and also in few other countries to some extent) , we only need 199 such organisations to get the job done , right? Well, there are few more centers already on the track..

    Don’t blame it on the existence..The responsibility is on individuals like us.

    We know so much but in the process, we lost track of some basic qualities like unity, cooperation etc..

    I okay with coasting along, waiting to go Ashtray… but I’m doing my coasting with the best quality I’m able to manage.

  125. prem bubbie says:

    I have an idea for sannyasnews. Next month, when it’s time to post another story(ies), how about posting nothing…. Instead of rehashing some old story and getting “new” rather, old views on it, or having some old fart sannyasin telling his/her success/money making tale, just print NOTHING, give that old chatter box of your mind nothing to gossip about and a chance for REAL meditation to take place… Looking at a blank page is more rewarding than continual mind chatter about garbage.

  126. prem bubbie says:

    bob, you said most aren’t “missionary bent”… that is until they see the sacks of money someone is carrying!!!

  127. prem bubbie says:

    One last, before I take a x-mas break- How about the nepal sannyasins start a hot air balloon ride service. It’ll bring in tons of money with little overhead- no propane cost, because all the hot air is provided free by sannyasins!!!! happy new year!!!!!!

  128. Shree Kandel says:

    This is secondary matter that President and Prime Minister Visited Osho Tapoban. What is important is Tapoban is success in Disturbing Our (Specially Sannayasin Arround the world)sleep simply by sitting silently at Himalayan forest in Nepal. Numbers of Comments above (both positive and negative) simply shows that its real success.

  129. Alok john says:

    Bob wrote : “Seems like most sannyasins are just coasting along”

    But you see Osho did teach let-go, coasting along if you like. He said not to be missionaries, not to use the mind to try and improve the world. He taught : the more mind, the more trouble.

  130. shantam prem says:

    How about dropping gurus altogether and going solo- one can’t do any worse!!!

    This is the best sentence from Bubbie.

    Let he drops from the sannaysnews for an experiment sake, after all sannyasnews revolves around a guru and that too a dead one.
    ( May be Osho left the body but when i see the working of His Vatican, it looks like surely He died, once for ever)

  131. chetna says:

    Alok says: “I think it is good that all these difficult people came to Osho.”

    Who else should come?I think this is why the movement was in a mess. “Evil” gets attracted. At least they had one chance.

  132. Krishnananda says:

    By the way Bubbie, the event at Tapoban was not a money mongering event, people have money for war not for meditation :-)

    The situation in Nepal is a little different than the rest of the world. We are just out of a “almost” civil-war and the government is all messy. There are no big bucks coming for any headquarters of any sort, nor from the Government. All is being done by local people.

    But the main point is – more people are being introduced to Osho – who meditate daily, live a disciplined life and new Osho centers are coming up in all major cities – and Osho Tapoban is playing its best role in helping all this. After all self-transformation is the main thing. Having lived there for 3-4 years, I have realized the importance of a commune life.

    You can come visit and know for yourself – you will not regret a single moment.

    But the idea of Hot Air Balloon is a good one :-) =

  133. Chetna says:

    “the event at Tapoban was not a money mongering event, people have money for war not for meditation”

    What was the event about then? I am bit confused…..

    It does not look from the picts that any of Osho meditations have been done!

    I bet military guys did not drop their guns and joined the wild dance?

    its good if those people came because that only shows their keen interest in meditation and osho and not on vote accounts as osho doesn’t have such a following…
