The need for Regime Change in the Sannyas Movement
Just a few days ago, Mubarrak, the 30 years long dictator and President of Egypt has addressed his nation after seeing the unprecedented show of public dissatisfaction with his imposed leadership.
In this context he apparently said that there is a possibility of a new constitution being drafted allowing a person to be President for a maximum of two terms, the way it is in USA.

Humanity is clearly asking for more transparency and the ordinary citizen’s involvement in the matter of governance. The music of freedom is being appreciated by even the bottom of the human pyramid.
My question is how long the Chairman and joint Chairman of the self styled “official” Osho movement in Pune will continue in their positions. They also have held sway for some thirty years since the fall of Sheela’s regime in 1985, their appetite for power similar to those of the Arab dictators. A majority of sannyasins have increasingly shown their disquiet by adopting an indifference posture towards the Pune regime. Is there scope for a popular uprising against this resort monopoly? Is there a possibility that an opposing party may bring the story of a divided house through the media into the world’s notice? and change occur?
Through this thread I wish to initiate a discussion about the role of change in the stagnated world of Osho movement. Let us discuss point by point possible case scenarios.
My first suggestion will be that Osho Friends International issues an appeal through the news media to the functionaries of the Osho resort for a summit meeting. Let us find out how we can again ignite the Osho fire into the hearts and beings of old and new sannyasins. What steps are needed and to explore why the resort management is lacking in their efforts? Everybody knows spiritual institutions are not built just by cement steel and bricks. Collective passion is the fundamental necessity…
