“This paper is not a mere newspaper; it is a messenger. So you have to keep alert that it beats with my heart, that it keeps in tune with me, that it does not lose contact with my vision. If you simply want it to be a newspaper, then my name should be removed from it. Then you can collect all kinds of stupid things that are happening around the world – murders, suicides, wars, and certainly you will be selling better…. Our concern is not sensational, but to spread the message. And anything that you can find in the world happening which supports the message, choose it, but the message remains your criterion…. Now, you have to use your ability of expression to make that vision available to as many people as possible. That will be your creativity.”

Osho, The Last Testament, Vol. 3, Chapter #24

Osho’s Shadow over Covid-19

Anyone familiar with Osho’s views on what is crippling the contemporary world of humans, and the beliefs they share, will see his early warnings everywhere in this coronavirus pandemic. As Osho explains: “All the scriptures of all the religions have given man a strange licentiousness over nature, over animals and birds.

A Way to End the Coronavirus Catastrophe

The Coronavirus Meditation

The reason we are even talking about this new virus, Covid-19, is because none of us wants to die. Or to put it more bluntly, we fear death. Any reminder of our inevitable mortality scares the crap out of us. With the fear comes a kind of blind insanity.

Don’t Just Sit There!

“Modern man is a very new phenomenon. No traditional method can be used exactly as it exists, because modern man never existed before. So in a way, all traditional methods have become irrelevant. Their spirit is not irrelevant, but their form has become irrelevant because this man is new.”1 Osho In the first part of...

Has Anyone Seen Osho?

Understanding the phenomenon called “Osho” has proved strangely elusive. Perhaps that is inevitable because at root Osho represents the greatest potential paradigm shift in the history of humanity. "Seeing" this is the first step.

Give Yourself the Best Present There Is

What is driving this insane obsession to keep moving round and round in circles, like a complete ring of ants on a plate, just following the ant in front till they drop? Unless we can understand what keeps us moving towards oblivion, we will never discover how to stop. It is pretty clear that our...

When the Shoe Fits, the Foot Is Forgotten

At the airport check-in counter, a VIP was yelling at the gate guard, ” How dare you to stop me? You don’t know who I am!” One hears this angry outburst often when someone feels insulted or neglected. Why this constant need to reaffirm yourself that you are somebody? People need continuous feedback from others...

Talking to the Sky

Talking to the sky looks like madness. We have seen mentally derailed people roaming around, talking to nobody,  and we feel sorry for them. But wait a minute.  If done consciously, this can be a wonderful remedy to regain your emotional balance and feel relaxed. For centuries Christian believers have been going to church and...

He dropped out in the last year. And once he lost his confidence it was very difficult for him to gear it up again. Parents and...

Going on a Real Holiday?

The itch to go on a holiday is quite a modern phenomenon. Particularly since so many of us became stressed workaholics. How can we make sure our holidays, including all the usual travel involved, are not also stressful! The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg (hālig “holy” + dæg “day”). The word...
