A love letter from Bhagwan (Osho) to Vivek (Nirvano) from 1971.

Letter to Vivek from Osho - private collection

bhagwan shree rajneesh
A-1 ROODLAND PEDDAR ROAD BOMBAY 26 PHONE 382164

Beloved VIVEK,

Love. I know how you will be feeling THERE.
Because, now you are an outsider there and for that matter, everywhere.
And this is how it should be.
It shows that meditation has gone deep.
And you are not the same.
Meditation makes you a stranger in your own home.
And ultimately homeless everywhere.
SANNYAS MEANS NOTHING BUT ABSOLUTE HOMELESSNESS.
I have sent you there PARTICULARLY for this experience.
And when you are back to me you will have come enriched.
I am happy – very very happy that now ROBERT is there with you.
Because you will feel a part of me in HIM.
Sometimes gaze in his eyes and then suddenly remember ME.
And I will be there.
He can become a window and a passage.

· · ·

But NOW COME BACK SOON.
SOONER THE BETTER.
Here am I waiting and waiting and waiting for my VIVEK.
