The first eleven years of my life were spent in Dehu Road, near Pune. I have seen several Osho Sannyasins as a child and we have crossed the Osho Ashram gates several times on dad’s scooter. Obviously something of Bhagwan’s energy rubbed off on me ….
The Beginning of the Beginning
Cut to 1990 and Mani gifted us Osho’s book “Beginning of the beginning”. The lifelong love affair with the Master began. We visited the Osho Ashram in Pune in 1997 for the first time. When we bought our own house, I put up the Master’s 6’X4′ poster right where you can see him in the living room. Anyone coming home, is blessed by the Master, whether they know him or not.
When I wanted to start a blog in 2012, I chose 90rollsroyces because our beloved Master owned 90 Rolls Royces. Swami Chaitanya Keerti told us that he actually owned 93, but what’s three Rolls Royces between a Master and his disciples. 😂
We took Sannyas in Dec 2018 – Sannyas Initiation – a letter of intent 🙂. Life kept moving along and we only knew that the Pune Ashram was being run by a different group of Sannyasins. Our friend Hema married Swami Prem Geet, and thats how we came to know of the imminent danger to Osho’s ashram and Samadhi. Do read more on Osho Friends Foundation website.
Osho Ashram and Osho Samadhi in danger
The current management of the Osho Ashram in Pune seems to be selling a portion of the ashram land which also has Osho’s Samadhi to a private party. Our Master’s legacy and his energy field could be lost to us forever!! Just thinking of that possibility is deeply upsetting.
Please do read and repost the following note to our Prime Minister. We seek his help to stop the sale of a portion of Osho’s ashram and Osho’s Samadhi.
Letter to PM Shri Narendra Modi
Respected Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modiji , Greetings Krishnan and I are Osho Sanyasis. We Osho disciples seek your immediate attention to save the great spiritual legacy of our Master, known as OSHO aka Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. The present trustees are alienating the Osho Samadhi, daily income of the trust and intellectual property rights of Osho worth millions of dollars are shifted to their personal accounts. Shree Rajneesh Ashram, also known as Osho Commune International Pune, has been built by thousands of disciples and friends of Osho over the period of 45 years. The Osho Commune International is governed by the said trusts. The said Neo Sannyas Foundation and Osho International Foundation have Osho’s Samadhi and Osho meditation space located in Koregaon Park, Pune 411 001. This is an international headquarter of Osho’s work which attracts large numbers of Osho disciples and friends from India and across the world. The Osho Ashram generates foreign exchange revenues by attracting also tourists from all over the world. The present trustees under the influence of a few foreigners are manipulating and alienating properties of the said trusts. Recently, the trustees have filed applications as stated above, seeking permission to dispose of the trust’s property worth 100 crores That is about 13,8 million US dollars. This is just a fraction of alienations taking place in the said trusts. We the lovers and disciples of Osho, humbly request you take an urgent note of this grave situation and do the needful as soon as possible to protect Osho’s Samadhi and his legacy situated in Pune. Sincerely yours Bindu and Krishnan
