Remembering Here&Now

Christo sent us an article by Bernard Levin that appeared in the British ‘Times’, describing the events that occurred in Buddha Hall on 22nd May 1980, and recounts his memories.

Surendra found some passages in Maneesha’s book from the eighties, ‘Osho: The Buddha for the Future’ that throw more light on the ‘edited and missing’ parts of discourses given by Osho in Lao Tzu House, Rajneeshpuram, to small groups of sannyasins in 1984/1985.

Excerpt from Deva Abhiyana’s recently released book, ‘The Long Reach of the Dharma’. “I needed peace of mind – and 30 years – to understand the lessons of Rajneeshpuram. So here I move into uncharted territory, by reporting things that were not always my direct experience.”

An excerpt from Punya’s book On the Edge recounting the time she was filing press clippings: “Most of my friends had no idea of what was going on in the media and would not have been particularly interested in knowing it either.”

A short story narrated to Anuragi by Vishnu who, as a 23-year-old, met Osho in October 1972 in Mt. Abu where he took three photographs, published here for the first time.

Chinmaya remembers the bombing of the German Bakery in Pune, India, a popular meeting point of sannyasins, and his Jhuni Benefit Concert that happened at the same time.

Kul Bhushan recalls the time when a cast of Osho’s feet was made, from which twelve metal sculptures were created which were given by Osho to several disciples.

Tantra teacher Radha gives an answer on video to “Can you speak about Osho as an ‘ordinary’ man?” (with Italian translation). Radha was one of the first mediums for Osho in darshans.

Laherubhai writes about Osho’s controversial discourses in Mumbai. “It happened that Osho managed to get work done through me for which I had no knowledge, experience or skill. This was a matter of great fortune for me.”

Arun speaks about an incident with the police in Kathmandu, upon being arrested because he sold Osho’s books. Excerpt from his new book, ‘In Wonder with Osho’.

Osho with guests

Anything related to Osho is always special, writes Ageh Bharti. However, today I would like to share a very special incidence that happened with Osho. It was narrated by Professor Arvind Kumar, the then Secretary to Osho, at Jabalpur.

Working full-on as a painter in the Lao Tzu construction crew in Pune 2 to complete the Samadhi, Surendra narrates the circumstances that made him decide to fly to England to be with his dying mother.

An excerpt from Arun’s upcoming book ‘In Wonder with Osho’. “My friend was surprised when I was allowed to sit next to the man, because he almost never allowed anybody to come close to him…”

In part 5 of 5 Surendra looks at the adults’ roles at Osho Ko Hsuan and the conflict if the school ought to remain an organisation under the name of Osho or, if adults didn’t want to meditate together, it should be merely called Ko Hsuan.
