…left his body on 10th September 2016.
From his brother Paritosh we hear that Shiv Anand Bharti (aka Kumar Goyal) had a heart attack yesterday morning at 9am and that he is no more with us. His Death Celebration will be today at 2pm at the Osho Meditation Resort in Koregaon Park, Pune.
Shiv Anand Bharti, originally from Panipat, studied Psychology at Kurukshetra University. He was one of the early sannyasins (1972/73) and a participant of Osho’s Kirtan Madali (1974-1976). In Pune 1 he was Osho’s guard in Lao Tzu House and was also working as a gardener. He visited Kathmandu when Osho was there in 1986. Shiv Anand Bharti lived in Finland for some years, married a Finnish woman with whom he had a beautiful daughter. Later he returned to India and lived in Pune. Last year he went to visit his daughter and granddaughter in Finland. Also last year, together with his best friend Rajendra, he travelled to Gadarwara, Osho’s childhood village.

Through your departure my words are meaningless, to you, a bodiless with no form, the formless has no written language. Still for a while the memories of you within the body are moving inside of me, slowly giving space for emptiness and there I can feel you, dissolving into the eternal. Hold my hand tonight in my dreams, so that in the morning my words contains the awakened tears.

Thank you, Shiv Anand, having been part of my life, thank you for everything you have given to me, thank you for your unending Love. I miss you, for every day of my life.
