Nandan recently discovered photos that were taken in Rajneeshpuram, Oregon, USA, mostly during the first years of the commune.

Some time ago I found in my father’s cellar all my old photos from the Ranch. I very much enjoyed looking at all these so familiar sceneries with lots of memories coming up.
Most of them I had bought on my last day in Rajneeshpuram. Just before leaving I saw this big table in front of the Mall with lots of photos; somebody from Naropa, the publications department, was selling them for quite a low price. And since I have inherited the love for photos from my father I could not resist. My father regularly took pictures of the whole family and once in a while we sat down – especially in his last years – and together looked at the big old photo albums, enjoying seeing ourselves from years ago… So, I just had to go for it and buy all the ones I liked.
Now, hoping that you will also enjoy them like I do, I gave them to Punya to share them with everybody.
