    Fantastic this is going on. Kudos to Swaram & Chetna; but thank God for a thousand and one excuses, valid as well, so I don’t have to join in.

    Although I wouldn’t mind sitting on the side, watching my breath while they are going at it. Yahooo!!!!

    Just wrote the comment on the video:
    Wow…Wonderful Energy!
    Music created during the Buddhafield is eternal, just like youthful idealism.

    After years, I have seen a video where Osho people are hugging. In India, whether in Resort or Delhi, hugs are forbidden, though Indian youth have adopted hugs as part of social communication.

  3. sw. veet (francesco) says:

    Nice smiles, nice place, relaxed atmosphere…but after Dynamic Meditation, before a hug, give me a shower and a classic breakfast 90s by Osho Commune: poha rice, papaya with yoghurt on top, chocolate croissant and cappuccino.

    Ciao,

    It’s not cynicism, it’s hunger.

  4. anand yogi says:

    Perfectly correct, Swaram and Chetna!

    But surely if the legacy of Osho is to be safeguarded for a yuga of superconsciousness there should be picture of Zorba the Buddha Modi on wall of venue?

    Or at least image of important bodhisattva such as Shantambhai, who has been toiling away `single-handedly` for so many years for the cause?

    Yahoo!
    Hari Om!

    “Make every opportunity a device to become more conscious, and soon more and more consciousness will be flowing in you, will be flooding you…more than you were working for. Then you will see the hands of the divine helping you. And once those hands have been seen, trust arises. Then you know that you are not alone.”

    “Shantam, is your personal version of Sannyas largely based upon being part of a collective, part of a large number of people gathered in one place? Is that the crucial element for you? If so, then no wonder you’re chronically disturbed by changes at the Pune ashram.”

    Do you think I am that much chronically disturbed that I go to a shrink or to one of those dozen-plus who adopted Osho Orphans?!

    According to Indian society of last century I have lived quite a privileged life.There was perfect balance between personal space and social responsibilities and recognition. Yet Osho’s creation simply knocked me out. His call became my call. It has happened with many disciples of many masters down the ages. It has happened with sannyasins too.

    Pune project died because of internal conflicts and ego games I call ‘Sheela Syndrome’. I feel it is possible to revive the project as a fine Creation of Osho. Does it mean I expect some favour from him up in the sky? Not at all.

    People spend their whole life looking at the ruins or insects or bodily organs. I find it a game.

    Spirituality is such a thing which cannot be defined. There are no yardsticks. So I don´t go into this fucking idea: is this spiritual or not? Anyway, I am least impressed by those who have reached and are successful in inner journey market.

    “But is that really what Sannyas is supposed to amount to, the individual depending upon external circumstances in one small place (especially when other communal environments are available)?”

    It is again a personal choice. Small place! My God, I have spent major part of my life in a country whose language I know only for basic communication, where I have no support system, no friends, no commune. How many days you can dare to live away from Mother Queen´s Britain, your homeland?

    “You might call this profound loyalty to the memory of the Master, to somewhere from your past where you ‘belong’, but, especially in the context of Sannyas, isn’t this deep conservatism just another attachment, in effect another form of self-imprisonment, the very opposite of the freedom you presumably crave?”

    Why I should be loyal to master? He did not even know my name. I am loyal to his vision, his concept of commune, even it has failed because of the minds of faithful ones. One needs to be loyal to one´s inner needs and inner voice.

    That which is left will be taken in the next post. In between, you can try to find hair floating in the milk!

    • satchit says:

      “One needs to be loyal to one´s inner needs and inner voice.”

      Why did your inner voice lead you to Freiburg, a place that does not
      make you happy?

      “I have spent major part of my life in a country whose language I know only for basic communication, where I have no support system, no friends, no commune.”

    • satyadeva says:

      Shantam, you say:
      “Spirituality is such a thing which cannot be defined. There are no yardsticks. So I don´t go into this fucking idea: is this spiritual or not? Anyway, I am least impressed by those who have reached and are successful in inner journey market.”

      And then:
      “Why I should be loyal to master? He did not even know my name. I am loyal to his vision, his concept of commune, even it has failed because of the minds of faithful ones. One needs to be loyal to one´s inner needs and inner voice.”

      And therein, I suggest, might well be the core of your problem, ie that you’re supposedly on some sort of ‘spiritual path’ as a sannyasin, yet you had absolutely no personal contact with Osho himself, and virtually zero with any other master or teacher.

      So, lacking this crucial element that might well have provided invaluable internal guidance, a balance to your often aberrant emotions that have, as you yourself point out, landed you in an unenviable mess of a life situation, you’ve gravitated towards an overriding, all-consuming concern with externals, chiefly an idealistic concept of a commune where you could live ‘happily ever after’ (without a living master, so well within your comfort zone – and therefore spiritually questionable), turning yourself into a chronically discontented fanatic, while conveniently offloading the responsibility for your plight and your ensuing anger onto others.

      It’s all very well to rationalise this by claiming “One needs to be loyal to one´s inner needs and inner voice”, but have you ever realised that there are multiple ‘inner voices’, at various levels, not necessarily just one, and moreover, that the one you’ve chosen to follow might not be all that intelligent, running, as it clearly does, on raw, unhappy emotion?

      And by the way, Shantam, I’m still waiting for the rest of your answers.

      • shantam prem says:

        SD, do you like to play faceless teacher waiting for the answers? I don´t see any decent communication with you for the reason, you are one of those who protect their personal thoughts and identity out of imaginary fears.

        Writing one´s thoughts is more honest and humane than commenting on others, modifying others.

        So write something out of your experience. Share and be vulnerable. I cannot relate with the bystanders hurling stones or flowers.

        • satyadeva says:

          Hark! I do believe I can hear the sound of one man wriggling his way out of attempting any sort of genuine response – despite having promised to answer previous questions…

          Fine ‘democrat’ you are, eh, Shantam? Call yourself a ‘freedom fighter’?! No, just another dishonest, wannabe politician.

          Call yourself a sannyasin? Then how come you can’t bear to really look at yourself?

          Too much dishonesty, without and within.

        • Arpana says:

          Shamtam whined:

          “Writing one´s thoughts is more honest and humane than commenting on others, modifying others.”

          Shantam, 99% of what you write here is bitching about others.

          P.S:
          I’ve just come in, after three hours helping friends decorate their living room.

          • frank says:

            O generation of typers, hast thou not taken heed of the words of the prophet Jeremiah 13:23:
            “Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? Or the brain-damaged onanist his chuddies?”

  7. sw. veet (francesco) says:

    I would not know if Shantam is moved by “profound loyalty to the memory of the Master” or envy of those who in the name of the Master would use the power to seduce girls. In both cases, whoever accuses him of this, if not a hypocrite, does not have this kind of motivation in commenting about Resort topic.

    Those who do not feel that sense of “profound loyalty to the memory of the Master” maybe do not find anything strange in the use of power in the name of the Master, so no envy.

    However, I realize that here (SN) the source has its importance, and if Shantam says something this is the toughest argument to overcome.

    No need for a Master, no need for Pune, no need for girls, no need for nostalgia, no need for poha rice, no need…ok, just a bit of hand mudra.

    Shantam, is your personal version of Sannyas largely based upon being part of a collective, part of a large number of people gathered in one place? Is that the crucial element for you? If so, then no wonder you’re chronically disturbed by changes at the Pune ashram.

    But is that really what Sannyas is supposed to amount to, the individual depending upon external circumstances in one small place (especially when other communal environments are available)?

    You might call this ‘profound loyalty to the memory of the Master’, to somewhere from your past where you ‘belong’, but, especially in the context of Sannyas, isn’t this deep conservatism just another attachment, in effect another form of self-imprisonment, the very opposite of the freedom you presumably crave?

    If so, then continually blaming others for your situation is missing the point entirely, isn’t it? Even rather childish, in fact, as exemplified in your response to Arpana today?

    Besides, as seen in initiatives like the Mega Dynamic and other regular Osho meditations in London and plenty of other places, Sannyas is alive and well, albeit in different forms.

    You could even create something similar in Freiburg, couldn’t you? Better than banging your head against a brick wall, complaining all the time, getting absolutely nowhere, while imagining you’re doing something ‘important’, ‘resurrecting’ Sannyas or some such delusion, all of which I suggest is the very opposite of ‘Sannyas’ intelligence!

  9. shantam prem says:

    I will be very relived if legacy holders of Osho issue a statement, from Rajneeshpuram to Osho Commune International was a fantasy of an addicted master.

    Please take with a pinch of salt when you read about commune and such bloody stuff.

    P.S:
    Satyadeva, Do you know the difference between apples, bananas and peaches?
    If yes, I presume you know the difference between J. krishnamurti, Osho and Ms. Meera!

    What I see in most of neo-spiritual people is an African Saying Syndrome, “Respect every man in the village, no one knows who your father is.”

    When people bow down before plenty of masters, they mix and match as per whims of their minds. And wonder is, such people have also the desire to go beyond mind. Surely they look for budget airline!

  10. satyadeva says:

    Five questions left unanswered, Shantam. Seems you prefer not to leave your uncomfortable comfort zone.

    Same old Shantam! Or even: Shame, old Shantam!

  11. shantam prem says:

    I was in the church and remembered famous story, fish of the ocean falls in the pond and has to explain about his abode to the frogs.

    Few fish still remember their ocean days and write memorials without mentioning what is the state of ocean right now.

    Was it natural shift where mountains become oceans and vice versa?

    My prima facie interest in Osho Commune is to understand the mind of those who live in high- rise opinion about themselves.

    It also reminds me of the story where someone is reluctant to give up his spare bicycle yet expects others to give up their cars and houses.

    To pinch priestly and political mind in Sannyas is my main objective and it is honest because I have not invested my energy into other organisations.

  12. Arpana says:

    Shantam says:
    “My prima facie interest in Osho Commune is to understand the mind of those who live in high- rise opinion about themselves.”

    Nobody has a more over-inflated view of themselves than you, Shantam.

    To westerners, criticising others for something you are so guilty of is hypocrisy, and all part of why you have no credibility here.
