Osho's message:
My message to humanity is: Create a new man ― unsplit, integrated, whole. Buddha is not whole, neither is Zorba the Greek. Both are half and half. I love Zorba, I love Buddha. But when I look into the deepest core of Zorba something is missing: he has no soul. When I look into Buddha something again is missing: he has no body. A great meeting I teach: the meeting of Zorba and Buddha. I teach Zorba The Buddha ― a new synthesis. The meeting of the earth and the sky, the meeting of the visible and the invisible, the meeting of all the polarities ― of man and woman, of day and night, of summer and winter, of sex and samadhi. Only in that meeting will a new man arrive on the earth.
~ ~ OSHO
Something like this has happened and the winds are carrying away some seeds of revolution from me. I have no idea in what fields they will land and who will tend them. I only know that it is from seeds like these that I have attained the flowers of life, immortality, and the divine. And in whatever field they land, the very soil there will turn into the flowers of immortality.............

Khalil Gibran says: If this is my day of harvest, in what fields have I sowed the seed, and in what un-remembered seasons?
Whenever I have read this statement, it has always reminded me of myself. My whole life I have been sowing the seeds in fields all over the world…And in what un-remembered seasons?
I have not waited for the right season to sow the seeds because the next moment is not certain. I may be here, I may not be here. And if this moment you are available, it is better not to bother about the spring. Let the seed wait in you; whenever the spring comes, the seed will become a sprout.
life consists of now and here. So there is no space and time enough to struggle. There is only enough time to celebrate. You can stand by the side... you can remain just a spectator. My invitation is to become a participant.

A group for all Sannyasins in this world
We have to start a new human being. A totally new vision of life has to begin: the life of surrender, the life of let-go. Be in tune with nature; there is no need to fight. Be in tune with other people; there is no need to be ambitious. And be in absolute tune with yourself. Don't divide yourself, don't' become schizophrenic; remain one, integrated, individual. And that's what sannyas is all about: a different lifestyle the lifestyle of let-go.

"One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen. You cannot do it every morning for a few minutes or for half an hour and then forget all about it. It has to become like your heartbeat. You have to sit in it, you have to walk in it. Yes, you have even to sleep in it. " - Osho"
My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily, if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life. "
- Osho"
You say that in heaven there is eternal beauty. The eternal beauty is here and now, not in heaven. "

Shit is just a product of the mind, stop shitting"

Remember one thing: that each of my sannyasins carries something of me, each of my sannyasins becomes a part of me, spiritually, physically, in every possible way. My sannyasins are not believers, my sannyasins are in a love affair. It is a MAD phenomenon! So wherever my sannyasins meet, my presence will be felt. Wherever my sannyasins celebrate, my message is realized, because celebration is my message.
Rejoice! Sing! Dance!
Dance so totally that your egos melt and disappear.
Dance so totally that the dancer is no longer there, but only the dance remains. Then you will find me wherever you are.

One thing has to be remembered about meditation; it is a long journey and there is no shortcut. Anyone who says there is a shortcut is befooling you. It is a long journey because the change is very deep and is achieved after many lives - many lives of routine habits, thinking, desiring. And the mind structure; that you have to drop through meditation. In fact it is almost impossible - but it happens.
A man becoming a meditator is the greatest responsibility in the world. It is not easy. It cannot be instant. So from the beginning never start expecting too much and then you will never be frustrated. You will always be happy because things will grow very slowly.
Meditation is not a seasonal flower which within six weeks is there. It is a very very big tree. It needs time to spread its roots.

December 11, 1931 - January 19, 1990
My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Osho is a visionary enlightened mystic of the new age. He spoke on a vast range of subjects including the talks of many mystics of the past and revived their teachings that are transcribed and published in over 650 books and are translated in many languages. He shared the essence of different meditation techniques and paths leading to inner transformation and developed His unique dynamic meditation methods that help the modern man unburden his anxieties and stress through a deep cleansing process in order to achieve a relaxed state of meditation and ultimately - Enlightenment. His basic message is the synthesis of the material and spiritual worlds, the culmination into Zorba the Buddha, a life full of YES and Celebration! Following are some of the highlights in a chronological manner. "Rajneesh" Chandra Mohan Jain (Hindi: रजनीश चन्द्र मोहन जैन) (December 11, 1931 – January 19, 1990), also known as Acharya Rajneesh from the 1960s onwards, calling himself Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh during the 1970s and 1980s and taking the name Osho in 1989, was an Indian mystic and spiritual teacher.
A professor of philosophy, he travelled throughout India in the 1960s as a public speaker, raising controversy by speaking against socialism, Mahatma Gandhi and institutionalised religion. He advocated a more open attitude towards sexuality, a stance that earned him the sobriquet "sex guru" in the Indian and later the international press. In 1970, he settled for a while in Mumbai (Bombay). He began initiating disciples (known as neo-sannyasins) and took on the role of a spiritual teacher. In his discourses, he reinterpreted writings of religious traditions, mystics and philosophers from around the world. Moving to Pune (Poona) in 1974, he established an ashram that attracted increasing numbers of Westerners. The ashram offered therapies derived from the Human Potential Movement to its Western audience and made news in India and abroad, chiefly because of its permissive climate and Osho's provocative lectures. By the end of the 1970s, there were mounting tensions with the Indian government and the surrounding society.
In 1981, Osho relocated to the United States, and his followers established an intentional community, later known as Rajneeshpuram, in the state of Oregon. Within a year, the leadership of the commune became embroiled in a conflict with local residents, primarily over land use, which was marked by bitter hostility on both sides. In this period Osho attracted notoriety for his large collection of Rolls-Royce motorcars. The Oregon commune collapsed in 1985, when Osho revealed that the commune leadership had committed a number of serious crimes, including a bioterror attack on the citizens of The Dalles. Shortly after, Osho was arrested and charged with immigration violations. He was deported from the United States in accordance with a plea bargain.[1][2][3] Following an enforced world tour during which twenty-one countries denied him entry, Osho returned to Pune, where he died in 1990. His ashram is today known as the Osho International Meditation Resort.
Osho's syncretic teachings emphasise the importance of meditation, awareness, love, celebration, creativity and humour – qualities that in his view are suppressed by adherence to static belief systems, religious tradition and socialisation. His teachings have had a notable impact on Western New Age thought,[4][5] and their popularity has increased markedly since his death.[6][7]
What others have said about Osho:
"Osho is an enlightened master who is working with all possibilities to help humanity overcome a difficult phase in developing consciousness."
- The Dalai Lama
"These brilliant insights will benefit all those who yearn for experimental knowledge of the pure potentiality inherent in every human being."
- Dr. Deepak Chopra
"He is the greatest incarnation after Buddha in India - he is a living Buddha."
- Lama Karmapa; late head of the Kargyupta (or Red Hat) Sect of Tibetan Buddhism
"...he was the greatest spiritual teacher of the 20th century... He understood us better than we understand ourselves."
- Tom Robbins, author
"...that's why I like Osho: he understands that the {ancient} techniques developed in India are not enough for the modern Western man, and so he creates new techniques for the {modern} man..."
- Michael Ende, author of The Never-Ending Story
"Reading his books made me trust in humanity."
- Madonna
"His greatness was that he didn't give solutions, only tools for people to realize themselves."- Elle, Italy
Osho on Meditation:
"Remember one thing:
Meditation means awareness.
Whatsoever you do with awareness is meditation.
Action is not the question,but the quality that you bring to your action.
Walking can be a meditation if you walk alertly.
Sitting can be a meditation if you sit alertly.
Listening to the birds can be a meditation if youlisten with awareness.
Just listening to the inner noise of your mindcan be a meditation if youremain alert and watchful.The whole point is:
one should not move in sleep.
Then whatsoever you do is meditation."
"To be humble is to be on the first leg of the journey to purity. The humble has yet to be on the first leg of the journey to purity. The humble has yet to be pure. He is on the way to it. One cannot be pure without being humble, because there is no greater impurity than ego".
"We have to look at Krishna in two different ways, and then we can look at ourselves the same way. We exist at two levels - one at the level of waves and another at the level of the ocean. As waves we are individual human beings and as the ocean we are the supreme being".
"The power of our unconscious mind is enormous; what we cannot do in our conscious state we can do with the help of the unconscious mind more sensible than the conscious."
"Let someone dance and let him bring all his energy to it, and soon he will find there is some one inside him who is not dancing , who is utterly steady and still. That is his axle , his centre. That which is dancing is his cicumference, his body and he himself is the centre."
'PHILOSOPHY is a disease, and not an ordinary one either. It’s not a common cold. It is cancer- Cancer of the soul. Once a person is lost in the jungle of philosophy he becomes more and more entangled in words, concepts, abstractions and there is no end to it. One can go on and on for lives together.'
'TRUTH happens in a state of not knowing, truth happens in innocence. Truth happens where there are no clouds of thoughts moving in your consciousness, when sky is absolutely clear, when there is no abstraction, when you have no idea and God is or God is not. When you don't believe in no-God, when you are simply in a state of not knowing. You don't claim any knowledge, that non-claiming consciousness begins to open up. All knowledge burdens and closes you.'
'BUDDHA did not teach anything to believe in. He was not a teacher in that sense, because he did not teach. He was, on the contrary, an anti teacher, he took away all the teachings that people were carrying. Slowly, he helped his disciples to become nude, naked.'
'TRUTH is simple. Very simple-so simple that a child can understand it. In fact, so simple that only a child can understand it. Unless you become a child again you will not be able to understand it. It is an experience, not speculation.'
‘LOVE deeply, love without jealousy, love blissfully and help each other to be more meditative. Because what else can we do and what can we share? Man is born naked without anything. Love should be the beginning of sharing something. Your love becomes a spiritual phenomenon.’
‘WHEN you love a person all fear disappears. And when you are afraid all love disappears.’
‘WHEN you love, you have to become nobody. If you remain somebody, then love never happens. When you love a person - even for a single moment love happens and flows between two persons- There are two nothingness, not two persons. If you have ever had any experience of love, you can understand it.’
‘WHEN two lovers are making love, and if they are both no-selves, nothingness, then a spontaneous pleasurable sensation happens. Then their body energy, their whole being, loses all identity; they are no more themselves - they have fallen into abyss. But this can happen only for a moment: again they regain, again they start clinging. That’s why people become afraid in love.’‘ONE becomes scared of love, then people remain satisfied with bodily love and they believe this to be love in its entirity.'
‘WHEN you want to love God, you have to be without mask. You have to drop all deceptions. You have to be authentically whatsoever you are; to be choiceless, whatsoever you are. In that primal innocence, God descends.’ ‘GOD is just a name of the totality of existence.’
‘GOD chooses first, then you start feeling a hunger for him...
men can not choose God, it is God who chooses man.’
‘DEATH is a door to God. Those who knows how to die know how to enter into God. Clingers clinging to life never know what God is.’
‘WHENEVER you meditate and you come upon beautiful spaces, immediately pray to existence: ‘ Let my joy be showered over every being - conscious, unconscious. I don’t want any ppersonal claim over it.’
‘WHEN you pray purify your intelligence and it becomes your wisdom. Purify yourself completely and you become one with whole. And to be on with the whole is the ultimate benediction, the blissfulness, the experience for which thousands of people have been searching down the ages on wrong paths. This world has to be loved, this world has to be respected, this world has to be your temple, your mosque your church. This world has to be your gratefulness, your gratitude. Enlightenment is not something of another world. Enlightenment happens now and here.’
‘WHAT is a prayer? Prayer is sending blessing to all. Prayer is sending your compassion to all. Prayer is creating an antidote of negative thoughts - it is positively.’
'IN the days of Buddha, or in the days of Lao-Tzu, the world was very very peaceful, natural, it was a heaven. Why? The population was very very small, one thing. People were not thinkers too much, they were more and more prone to feeling rather than thinking. And people were praying. In the morning, they would do the first thing and that would be a prayer. In the night they would do the last thing---the prayer. And through out the whole day also, when ever they would find a moment, they would be praying inside.
IF you are born Mohammedan, you have to disappear as a born Mohammedan. If you are a born Hindu, you have to disappear as a born Hindu. You have to find your natural qualities- because only nature grows. Birth is accidental, birth determines nothing. It was coincidence that you were born in a home where people were Hindus - it is as much a coincidence as if they belonged to a particular political party. If your parents were Catholics you need not to be a catholic. You have to search for your own path; each one has to search for his own path.
FAITH is not belief, it is love. Faith is not belief it is not half, it is total. Faith is not belief because there is no doubt in it, so how can you believe?
FAITH is not rationalization at all: neither for nor against, neither this nor that. Faith is a trusting, a love.
HEART doesn’t know what doubt is, heart doesn’t know what BELIEVE is- heart simply knows trust. Heart is like a small child; the small child clings to the father’s hand, and wherever the father is going the child is going, neither trusting nor doubting. The child is undivided. Doubt is half, belief is half. A child is still total. Whole.?
RELIGION is just like an oasis; the desert is vast, and sometimes in tiny parts of the desert an oasis appears. And while it lasts, seek it, and while it is there, drink of it- and it is very very rare.1

Sannyasnews: Osho Copyright Paradoxes: Dhanyam comments

Osho Copyright Paradoxes: Dhanyam comments
Posted on January 25th, 2009 by sannyasnews
The Publication Paradoxes of Osho International Foundation
(This contribution to the current debate is from Swami Dhanyam. Dhanyam has sold Osho books for some 25 years, and also laudably supported the community sannyas magazine based in California, “Viha Connection”, through all that time. )
Many people feel that it is important for OIF (Osho International Foundation) to own Osho trademarks and copyrights to protect the purity of Osho’s words and works from any distortion, dilution, and/or editing. However, this is happening all the time, and the biggest offender, in my opinion, is OIF.
Who is able to challenge OIF on their editing, dilution, and distortion of Osho’s work?
For example, OIF has produced 25 Osho compilation books (most of them were published by St. Martin’s Press, NY). These compilation books contain Osho’s words in some form, but they are not pure Osho books.
I remember that in the 1980s (when Osho was still alive) the “Rebel Press”, (the official publisher of Osho’s work) produced many popular compilation Osho books. When I later tried to order these titles, I was informed that Osho did not want His books produced as compilation books, and Rebel Press (at that time) stopped producing any compilations.
But there is another side to this story. The Osho compilation books produced (in the years since Osho’s death) by St. Martin’s Press and a few other publishers have sold worldwide in the millions, have made lots of royalty money for OIF, and have also brought lots of people to Osho. Due to good advertising and promotion, the compilations are very popular and outsell all original Osho titles.
I have been selling Osho books for 23 years and know that new people especially like the compilation books. When I went to Brazil a few years ago and visited the Brasilia airport bookstore I found eight Osho compilation books (in Portuguese) prominently displayed in the window. When I (currently) visit the local Barnes & Noble or Borders bookstores ( here in California) I see 10 to 20 Osho compilation books for sale.
OIF has done a great job in making Osho books available worldwide, but they are not pure Osho books.
In the past few years I have noticed an interesting trend: Some of my buyers insist on buying “Rajneesh” books as they know that these are pure, unedited books.
Love to you all,

Not sure Dhanyam.The post Osho’s death compilation books may have sold very well, but the “many” people that they are supposed to have brought to Osho seems a more debatable point. Have not noticed great numbers arriving through them myself.The point of a Master is that he does not want to reach “everybody” he only wants to reach those who are already partly in tune with him, so the success or otherwise of the publications financially is neither here or there.It’s important the books and videos reach the right hands, and in the way the Master thought they would reaach the disciple best, which is in the unadorned non-compiled form, with each discourse being as Osho himself dictated and said as “Complete unto itself”.As you point out Osho did make a big point of this, and as I remember some “Rebel” publications were withdrawn in the late eighties because of his concerns.As you also point out it seems that the more discerning readers know how OIF have played around with the books, and ask for the original Rajneesh titles!Anyway whatever side of the coin one looks, I dont find any of the protaganists in this debate very “surrendered” to the Master’s will! Bet they would have been when he was alive!
shantam i singh // Jan 25, 2009 at 10:55 pm
It seems this guy or girl Heraclitus is adament to prove every single point wrong, which does not fit with the minority view of the ruling class called OFI. it is like there will always be people who will defend Mugabe in Zimbabve.This way or that, Osho´s books have become like 365 versions of Bible, yet His readers and listeners are intelligent enough to find their way towards truth.

You write something on a ballon you don’t like about OIF, then pop the balloon, and it all goes away. Give it a go. Here’s a pin, pop!

OSHO: Live You My Dream

Live You My Dream

12 Min. Video Clip www.azkia.de/1/OSHO/MYDREAM.html

18 de enero de 1990:
Osho permanece en su habitación durante la reunión vespertina, pero manda el mensaje de que su presencia sea sentida como si él estuviera allí.

19 de enero de 1990:
Osho deja su cuerpo a las cinco de la tarde, después de rechazar un tratamiento extraordinario sugerido por su médico con las palabras: «La existencia decide el momento», y pacíficamente cierra los ojos y se deja ir. Su médico lo anuncia a las 7 de la tarde, cuando la gente se ha reunido en la sala de meditación para la habitual reunión de la tarde. Después de un breve intervalo para dejar que los amigos informen a aquellos que pudieran no estar presentes pero que quisieran venir, el cuerpo de Osho es conducido hasta la sala para una celebración de diez minutos, y luego transportado en procesión hasta el crematorio cercano, junto al río, donde su celebración de despedida continúa durante toda la noche.
Dos días más tarde las cenizas de Osho son traídas hasta el Auditorio de Chuang Tzu —la habitación donde ha dado charlas y se ha reunido con sannyasins y buscadores durante tantos años—, que ha sido transformada en su nuevo «dormitorio». Las cenizas son colocadas, siguiendo las instrucciones de Osho, «debajo de la cama» —un bloque de mármol en el centro de uno de los extremos de la habitación que, efectivamente, había sido diseñada como plataforma de una cama—, y cubierto por una placa en la que se inscriben las palabras que él había dictado algunos meses antes:

ENTRE 1931 Y 1990

On Thursday, January 18,1990,

SANNYASWORLD: Trademark on the word"Osho"

Trademark on the word 'Osho' refused to Osho International Foundation.
Posted by: gorakh
About Osho
Osho International Foundation Zurich (the legal holder of trademarks and copyrights related to Osho) have lost the trademark of the word "Osho" as related to meditations and related usages. The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board found that "the term Osho is generic for the meditations devised by the mystic Osho and the meditation and religious movement arising therefrom. As a result defendant [OIF] cannot foreclose others from utilizing the term OSHO to describe their own goods and services based upon such meditations and movements."
The decision effects 13 different trademarks or usages of the word OSHO. It is the result of an opposition lodged by Osho Friends International against Osho International Foundation (OFI v OIF). OFI also accused OIF of committing fraud by registering the trademarks, but this was not upheld by the courts decision. The opposition case was started in November 2000 after OIF had filed for the trademark to Osho Active Meditations (they had previously filed for trademarks starting in April 1999). A full time line is available here. The full decision from the court is available from the USPTO.
"DECISION: plaintiff's petition to cancel is hereby granted on the ground of genericness as to Registration Nos. 1815840, 2180173 and 2174607. Plaintiff's petition to cancel is further granted on the ground of mere descriptiveness as to Registration No. 2322901. Accordingly, these registrations will be cancelled in due course. Plaintiff's oppositions to the registration of application Serial Nos. 75834601; 76159554; 76159553; 76060676; 75683097; 76210213; 76158894; 76158895; and 76158893 are sustained on the ground of mere descriptiveness."
Here are the trademarks effected:
OSHO ACTIVE MEDITATIONS in application serial No. 75834601.
OSHO ZEN TAROT, Application Serial No. 76159554
OSHO KUNDALINI MEDITATION, App Ser No 76060676OSHO App Ser No 75683097
OSHO TIMES App Ser No 76158893
OSHO REBALANCING App Ser No 2322901The case involved testimony from many sannyasins, in particular from Osho Deepta (Yogananda, Sangeet, Krishna Priya, Sudhasadan) in California, Osho Viha and OshoWorld.com.




Death Celebration at the Osho International Pune, India

Beloveds, There was a big win for religiousness over religion in the US today. Much Love, Sangeet

Beloveds, There was a big win for religiousness over religion in the US today. Obama is being sworn in and OSHO is free for all to use: it's a happy New Year indeed. The US trademark board released it's decision in the OSHO case today, after 10 years of litigation. The opinion was very strongly worded and unanimous. The board ruled that "OSHO" is used to refer to meditations and the movement that arose around the teachings of the person OSHO. It isn't a brand of products produced by OSHO International Foundation in Zurich. This means that "OSHO" must be available for all OSHO's people to use to describe what they're doing. OIF cannot keep others from using OSHO. Every trademark challenged by OSHO Friends was canceled or denied. This is the best possible decision we could have hoped for. It steps over all the arguments about who owned what trademarks and whether anyone licensed anyone else. In essence, this decision simply says that there is no trademark. Since the name "OSHO" means a certain approach to meditation and a whole movement, it can't be a trademark for anyone, ever. Many thanks to everyone who helped with this, who stood up and were counted. All the witnesses that OSHO Friends called were cited in the footnotes of the decision, but there were particular quotes from the testimony of Dhanyam (Rosansky), Krishna Priya (Hemenway), and Maniko (Dadigan). Telling the truth does have power! I'm attaching the decision. Please pass this great news on to anyone on your address list who might like to celebrate.
Much love, Sangeet


News Flash: “Osho” is free for all to use

Posted on January 14th, 2009 by sannyasnews
Osho Trademark Decision in

Sannyasnews learn that the US trademark decision came in today.(January 14th).
Readers will remember that Osho Foundation International (OFI) wanted to stop people using the word Osho, and for OFI to have sole rights over it as a trademark. The US Courts decision went against OIF on every trademark contested. Osho International Foundation has until April,09 to appeal, but this only applies in the US. So this is a big start on establishing that the word “Osho” is free for all to use, something which sannyasnews support.
The basis for the decision was that the word Osho is generic and descriptive of meditation techniques and a movement that arose around the teachings of the person Osho. “Osho” isn’t an indicator of the products of
only one company, OIF. The Court ruled that all people involved in Osho’s work have a need and a right to use His name, as He asked them to do.

You Belong to Eternity
You exist in time, but you belong to eternity. You are a penetration of eternity into the world of time. You are deathless, living in a body of death. Your consciousness knows no death, no birth. It is only your body that is born and dies. But you are not aware of your consciousness; you are not conscious of your consciousness.And that is the whole art of meditation: becoming conscious of consciousness itself.

This Very Moment
A rose flower contains all the rose flowers of the past. And if you can understand, let me say, it contains all the future flowers also. We are here. In this moment the whole existence converges. All the past and all the future converges in this moment. This moment is the bridge between the past and the future. In you, everything is meeting right now. If you can become aware, then you are the whole existence this very moment.

Escuela de Misterios por primera vez en Chile...

"Una Escuela de Misterios es un encuentro sistemático con lo milagroso. Participar de ella es la mayor aventura que existe.
La función de una Escuela de Misterios -y existen pocas- es mayor que la de una universidad. Algunas de sus funciones son hacerles conscientes de su conciencia. Estar consciente de su conciencia es meditación, y es el primer paso para ser, realmente humano. Otra función muy importante es ayudarlos, darles coraje a abrir todas sus heridas. Para esto una herramienta importante es la hipnosis, que siempre fue parte de las escuelas de misterios.
Zaratustra fue uno de los creadores de las escuelas de misterios. Muchas otras existieron en Egipto, India y Tíbet. Pitágoras fue iniciado en escuelas de Egipto e India. Jesús fue entrenado por los Esenios, una escuela de misterios muy secreta.
Todo lo bello y grandioso en la historia de la humanidad solo sucedió porque algunas personas reunieron sus energías para la exploración interna."
