In the wake of the Netflix docuseries Wild Wild Country, Shantam Lani, Osho’s World Ambassador and former Rajneeshpuram resident speaks to Tracy Alexander on Israel’s ‘i 24NEWS’. Published on May 28, 2018.
Swaram’s interviews with: Osho’s world ambassador, Lani, musician Miten and Nirvano, the German translator of Osho’s books.
Punya recalls the events around one of the Master’s Day celebrations in Rajneeshpuram. Excerpted from her book, ‘On the Edge’.
In the last part of this interview, Lani talks about her life after Pune 2, and her mother Hanya’s death. “As his ambassador I never think, ‘Now I have to do…’ Osho had answered my question with, ‘You go where the energy is needed, you follow your energy.’ … This is the gift that he gave me; to encourage me to be myself even more. “
Lani speaks about her life after leaving Rajneeshpuram; her travels (Israel, Greece, India, Korea and Russia during Gorbachev’s time), to promote Osho’s books at fairs and to find suitable publishers and, of course, about how she ‘became’ Osho’s World Ambassador.
Lani talks to Punya about events during her young adulthood and seeing Osho for the first time. “The newsletter had an article about David working on the farm in Rajneeshpuram. I said to myself, ‘My brother is working on the farm? Getting his fingernails dirty? There must be something happening there.’”
