Sannyas Deeply Embedded in Germany


During the seventies, the media in Germany played around with the name ‘Bhagwan’ and called sannyasins the ‘Backwahn Sekte’.

‘Backwahn’ literally means baking mania.

More than 30 years later, a greeting card company featured the image below on their Christmas cards. It reads:

Active again at Christmas – the Backwahn sect

backwahn sekte

This humorous card just shows how Osho and sannyas are totally integrated in the overall German psyche.
