EXPERIENCES from the OSHO International Meditation Resort

, , 33 Comments


OSHO International Foundation presents Experiences from the Osho International Meditation Resort “It was the sheer beauty of the place that I first fell for. Meditation was in the very air.” — ‘High Life’, British Airways Inflight Magazine. The Osho International Meditation Resort is unique in the world — an environment created for individual experiment — And one thing that struck me more than anything else is the beauty of this place. That was the first thing — like all the greenery, the water around, people walking in this maroon robes. It was like a fantasy land. From the moment you walk into the welcome center, it’s like a state of art… design… shining marble floor and waterfalls… beautiful benches I walked through the gates and it was like an explosion. It was really amazing. I didn’t realize that in the few years before how much… slowly… but how much I had suppressed my joy and my expressiveness… and the moment that I walked in, it just went BOOM and it was incredible. At the heart of the meditation resort — the Osho Auditorium — used primarily for Osho Active Meditations — meditations designed for people living in today’s fast paced and stressful world — I used to be on tenderhooks all the time and you know very…there was a sense of incredible nervous energy all the time. But now, I mean after I did Kundalini for a couple of years, on and off, I felt, obviously a serenity, a calm within myself. People close to me also saw that — that it was really a long spell before they could see even regular emotions like anger or irritation. My thresholds kind of expanded. Dynamic meditation…. which I started probably five years ago now was truly a life-changing experience. I had no idea what to expect when I started. And I didn’t stop then for eight months… and… it happened so fast, I mean I just changed from this to this! It was like being turned upside down, and shaken around and then put back together again… and so much lighter, you know! Zorba the Buddha — both — the celebration of Zorba the Greek and the inner silence of Gautama the Buddha — Restaurants provide star quality — Western, Asian and Indian vegetarian food — Club meditations world class facilities — whether for play or for more focused body exercise and care — The Guesthouse provides participant accommodation — The Osho Multiversity is the largest self-discovery and transformation center in the world — and a bridge to meditation — an international staff is available to help design a unique program for each participant — I recently participated in a course called “Opening to Feeling Breath” and it was a very strong experience to live how breathing can help you connect with some things, with some energy contained inside of you — and when you connect with that energy and you allow it to express itself. And it’s a clean energy and so you can use it with, for any purpose being creative or being very active or just relaxing into yourself. So it was a very-very nice experience to be in this 3-day course and I definitely found something that I can use in my daily life. Well, a very strong one that comes into my mind right now is “Opening to Self-Love.” Because it was a very clear invitation in this particular group to look at the conditioning. And during this three days Multiversity course all that I went through in childhood and all I had absorbed; this conditioning became very very clear. So with this course it became very clear also what there is to watch. Work As Meditation — to support the experience of a creative and relaxed awareness on returning to the marketplace — I have really learned… I just realize sometimes — Wow! I am doing this just for the pleasure of it. I’m doing this because I really want to be here and it’s just for me, and to put then even more energy into the work because you want to create something beautiful. …and it’s not about getting something back, it’s just about me. The more I put in, the more I can flower from the experience. So, that’s been a really beautiful learning and something that I hope I can take in to a regular job in the West perhaps. I really hope that I can put this into practice in the outside world. An abundance of evening events for anyone’s expression and enjoyment — How do I enjoy the place — I, obviously, the meditations aside which of course are the main stay of the place but also the people. You get to exchange or you get to participate in an environment where people from all over the world are present — hundred nationalities or whatever — and obviously learn about cultures. Everybody is so loving because that’s what the place is about and there are no ulterior motives, everyone is trying to do whatever their conditioning is. In the resort there are many activities and also people from all over the world. Although there is culture clash, but somehow in this place it becomes unified of all people like a global link connecting all people together. If you want to be nice to yourself and give yourself a treat and give you an opportunity to experience yourself as your own being then coming here is the right choice because here everything is allowed. You are allowed to be yourself, you are allowed to not know who you are but go there and figure it out. And it is an opportunity to meet people, to try a lot of meditations techniques in the Auditorium. To try some of the Multiversity courses. To have a nice swim in the pool, a sauna if you like… Wonderful food in the Zorba the Buddha restaurant… and in the Meera. And so much more. If people are coming to a point where they feel like there must be more to life than this. There must be a different way to work, there must be a different way to live that’s more joyful. To do it in a different way and I think, more and more people in the West are now coming to that point of dissatisfaction with this routine. Then this is the best place on Earth to find out a different way to do that. To have the experience hands on, with support and then to be able to take that back. I think that is possible and I think it’s a golden opportunity for everybody. The Osho International Meditation Resort is situated in the pleasant residential area of Koregaon Park, Pune, India. A fifteen minute flight from Mumbai and two and a half hours by car.

    I have a question for the Oshoists.

    Once you've "participated in an environment where people from all of the world are present … connected with the energy contained inside of you … worked in meditation … and understood your childhood."

    When does the work for the harmonious development of mankind begin?

    Or are we still perpetually working on the self?

    Don't get angry Oshoists. Feel the "JOY".

    Namaste,

    I didn't know this place existed- it seems to be a new age place where people go to develop themselves to be great achievers in the world, this certainly is popular, a bigger and better "ME". In my path, it is about giving up the "Me" so Realization ( Total Liberation) is the result.

    Osho is available. The Resort is available. Anytime the mankind is free, can visit and develop itself through the catalysts.

    Or are we still perpetually working on the self?

    Precisely, perpetually working on the self is going to lead to the development. Each individual has to take his own responsibility. The Saviors are tired, now, it's time for us to act!

    … with all the "JOY"!

    This is actually . . . pretty good.

    It reveals exactly the kind of people . . . that are attracted to this place.

    Makes it easy, if you have any self-awareness, to judge if those are the kind of people you want to have anything to do with.

    Divine (meditative) energy is in the environment. One who has lost the connection with the 'whole' or the 'self' can get it back very easily here. cuz the trees and the earth is still afresh with the energy of the master 'OSHO' my Beloved!!

    I like Osho, but where is the individual experimentation is walking around in the same maroon robe (a uniform) as everyone else?

    These videos are good karma!

    I know OSHO says to be aware of fulfillment through video, but this should be an exception. Good videos should be an exception.

    Nice Meditation Hall but not at all close to being the largest. The largest Meditation Hall is the Sapha Dhammakaya Hall in Thailand. It covers 40 acres under one roof and can accommodate 300,000. Thier newly constructed Meditation Stadium is even larger. It covers an area of over one square kilometer and can accommodate over a million meditators which they have done many times. May we all create World Peace through Inner Peace. InnerPeaceUSA
