An update by Satya Vedant in regard of the establishing of an Osho Chair at South Gujarat University in Surat, India.
I feel so happy to share the following news. Indeed, beloved Osho’s blessings are infinite.

In India, in terms of our efforts towards creating an Osho Chair at South Gujarat University, Surat, rupees five lakhs (approx. US$ 7,500) have been deposited at the university. The next step, to prepare an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) in consultation with a lawyer, is now underway. Once the required university procedures are over, we look forward to formally and officially having the Osho Chair established, which may certainly materialize by December 2016.
However, in the meantime, we shall raise additional funds to find an office space and required infrastructure such as furniture, computer etc. for an Osho Chair. Furthermore, within a month, we shall begin offering workshops, seminars, lectures focused on one of the seven dimensions of the Osho Chair which is: Life Empowerment. We will have an opportunity to register/enrol anyone interested in learning about Osho’s vision as presented under this dimension of the Osho Chair.
We can now count on a team of Osho sannyasins who are enthusiastically willing to commit their time and expertise for contributing into the Osho Chair Syllabus and its offering. We begin first with Life Empowerment.
I shall keep you updated.
