Dear Friends

AMAR is in Dallas for another week. He has accepted our request to offer two more rounds of this course before he goes back to India. Friends who took the course last week, can't praise enough for what they received.

Some comments from the friends who took the course from AMAR last week:

"Simple, yet profound. This course has dramatically changed my 
life forever. I am eating much healthier now. I feel good about 
myself, both physically and emotionally. My chronic joint pain 
has dissolved
Amar is truly an amazing teacher - a gift from 
God. I highly recommend this course to everyone. It has 
awakened my passion for life. Thank you so much for bringing 
this program to Dallas. - "Beth"

I have had feelings of deep gratitude towards 
the guru every single day, because after 
coming in contact with him, my energy 
levels have raised phenomenally already and 
I feel 10 years younger. I have not had infections 
in the last week. So far, I have lost about 2 pounds.
I am adhering to a healthy diet and am easily avoiding 
food items which harm one's system. Guru's divine 
energy has allowed me to sustain this pace. -"Laura Morton"

I am feeling very happy after taking 
Dr Amer Chandel's 5 days Course Satsang.....
Thank you soo much for providing such a 
great program for those who was in such a need...person like me.
After taking that program I am feeling very lucky ...
and feeling I am one of those who can live life HAPPILY ever after......
Someone has said "HEALTH IS WEALTH" Now I have 
understood the meaning of that. - "Sushmita Pokhrel"

Doing this course at the age of 65 
and after surviving a heart attack, 
I feel that now I have a whole new 
healthy life ahead of me that I missed 
in the past.
 Thanks for such a wonderful 
offering. -"Brahm"

Course will be held twice, one during the weekend followed by by one in the weekdays, so you have two chances to suit your schedule.

Further Description

Last year, Dr. Amar Chandel, an eloquent renowned writer & Naturopathy Yogi visited us from India to conduct the OLISTIC HEALING COURSE. More than 15 friends took the course. We all agree that our life has taken major shift toward better health & peacefulness. Many of us lost more than 20 pounds in body weight without staying hungry & much physical exercise. Weight loss is just not only the benefits we received from the course; it brought much peace, guidance & brightness to our life. We have much more energy than what we had before taking the course. The benefits are enormous, personal & differ from individual to individual.

Dr. Chandel says “Human body is capable of living 140 years, but starts decaying very soon between the ages of 30 to 50 & become aged or mortal at 70 just because we don’t apply simple secrets of Yogic health to our life.”

We all are witnesses here & strongly recommend this course to everyone who wants to live longer, healthy & peaceful. Dr. Chandel shares the simple secrets & uses special initiation technique to keep you motivated, charged towards maintaining your healthy life style. His techniques have cured thousands of people from several chronic diseases including Cancer.

I am glad to announce that he is coming back to Dallas in May to conduct the course from May 3rd to 7th. It’s a 5 days course around 2 hours in the evening & at the end of course of you will receive special yogic initiation which will help you in the meditation, deepen your relationship with the body & start a love affair with healthy living. This course is not ordinary weight loss course. For the one who want to explore further, it’s a mysterious entry to find ultimate peace & health in life.



            Emotional problems, diseases and pains have become a part of modern life. A majority of people suffer from headaches, migraine, sinus, blood pressure, neck pain, backache, diabetes, stress, jointache and what not, that too from a very young age. They spend a fortune on getting treatment, but the relief is only temporary. Medicines are not at fault. The real difficulty is that all these are lifestyle problems, which just cannot be eliminated till we change our day-to-day life. The course teaches you what the root causes of the ailments are and how to remove them. These are some of the things that the course helps students in achieving:

1.     Reducing their weight; 
2.    Controlling  diseases like sinus, backache, blood pressure, spondylitis, anaemia, skin problems, piles, diabetes and joint pain etc  
          3.     Freeing themselves from emotional difficulties like stress, lack of motivation, depression or aggression and 
          4. Improving their or their children’s memory and sharpening mental faculties


            The right approach is to take preventive steps so that one does not contract these diseases in the first place. But even those who have already got them can cure them at home without any medicines. 
            Nobody commits major mistakes willingly. It is just that everyone makes some tiny little errors due to ignorance repeatedly, which affect one badly in the long run. We normally wake up only when it is too late and even then do not or cannot pinpoint the root cause. These can be corrected only if we know where we are wrong and also if we become fully aware that the consequences of a seemingly small mistake can be so serious. That is the aim of the course: to enlighten the students about where they are going wrong unintentionally. 
            It makes one realise that one never falls ill, but invites illnesses, innocently. Ninety per cent of all diseases can be removed mainly by making lifestyle changes. Even other more serious ones respond much better to medicines and surgery if one leads a healthy life as taught during the course. 
            Obesity (excess weight) has become an epidemic. The course teaches students how to lose weight scientifically and effortlessly. By losing 2 kg every month, one can shed 24 kg (over 50 Lbs) in one year. (There are numerous students who have lost even 150 Lbs.) 
            Bad health does not affect one's body alone. It also changes one's nature and temperament as well. Some become aggressive. Others go into depression. All these problems can be removed if one follows the advice given during the course diligently and religiously. 
            Such miraculous cures take place through three techniques covered during the extensive training:

1.     Eating right without dieting. 
2.     Doing essential exercises in minimum time with minimum effort 
3.    Avoiding stress and attaining a sense of peace and calm through yoga, breathing techniques and pranayama.

            In short, the course makes the students look better, be younger and live longer, healthier and happier. These five days can transform one's life. Many in the past have commented that had they done the course earlier in life, they would have avoided trouble and pain worth millions. 
            Those who are sick and tired of everyday diseases and their mood swings have no better way to restore health, happiness and harmony. 
            All that is expected of a student is to learn the techniques thoroughly and practice them religiously. Wonderful results don't come by magic overnight. One has to spend at least six months in repairing the damage done over a lifetime. That is very small period for curing dreaded diseases without any medicine or hospitalisation. 
            Tips learnt during the course can save the students' lives as also those of their friends and family members. That is why some grateful students call it "Kaya Kalpa" (magical change in one's life). 
            But be warned. The techniques taught have to be followed strictly, without any "ifs" and "buts". If you do, a life hundred times better than what you are leading today awaits you.

            It may be added for the benefit of the spiritually minded persons that completing the internal cleansing through the Holistic Healing course qualifies one for initiation into the mystical world of meditation and self-discovery.

To maximize the benefits of the program, Dr Chandel has requested us to fill out the attached questionnaire to help him evaluate our personal situation. Although benefits of the program are very subtle, but weight management is most visible benefit of the program. Here Dr. Sandeep sent me before & after pictures of a couple who has benefited from the program. Dr. Chandel says "Before the course, Adarsh was 106 kg and his wife 81. Now two years later, he is 70 and she 61. If Adarsh and Ritika can do it. so can everybody else.”

What about yoga?

Yoga means union, the science of union. Meditation is the most supreme phenomenon as far as union with reality is concerned. Meditation is the god of yoga. But yoga has fallen into wrong hands, and not only recently — for centuries it has been in the wrong hands.

The original fault must be with the founder, Patanjali himself. Patanjali has divided yoga into eight parts. His division is clear-cut, very scientific, but he was not really aware of human stupidity. He started with the body ― and that's the right way to start. The first part of yoga must be physiological because man lives on the circumference, in the body, so the work has to start there, only then can it reach the mind. And when one has gone beyond the body and beyond the mind, then the third, meditation, happens.

So according to Patanjali the first part belongs to the body. But he was not clearly aware that millions of people would remain entangled with the first part. Hence yoga has become synonymous with yoga postures: people standing on their heads and doing all sorts of contortions. That has become synonymous with yoga.

It is not a true yoga, it is just the preface, the introductory part; and the person who thinks the introduction is the whole book is idiotic. But Patanjali did not warn people. If he had warned people it would have been better. People like Patanjali believe in others' intelligence ― which is not there! They trust. Their trust is immense, their trust is as immense as people's stupidity is! They respect people's intelligence. So he did not warn people, but the warning was absolutely necessary: "Don't get entangled in the physiological part."

A few people, only very few ― if a hundred people become interested in yoga then only one person will get out of the physiological entanglement. And that one person will become entangled in the psychological. If a hundred persons are entangled in the psychological then only one person gets out of it...and only when you get out of the mind does the real yoga begin. 

The physiological part of yoga will give you great physiological powers; it can make you live a really long, healthy life. But what are you going to do with a long life? If you are idiotic, instead of being idiotic for seventy years you will be idiotic for two hundred years. It is not going to help anybody; it will be a calamity. 

There was a man called Nadir Shah ― one of the most notorious, murderous men in the whole history of humanity. He invaded India at least one hundred and eight times. He killed more people in India than anybody else. And he had his own ways of torturing: he would put the whole town on fire and surround the town with his army so nobody could escape ― and he would enjoy it!

This man asked an astrologer, because he had heard of his fame, "What do you say? What is your advice? ― should a man live long, very long, or should one live only the average, seventy years?" 

The astrologer must have been a really wise man. He said, "It all depends. If a man like you lives long, it is bad, it is unfortunate. In the first place a man like you should not be born; and in the second place, if he is born, then he should die immediately. And in the third place, if he manages to live somehow, then the sooner he dies, the better!"

Nadir Shah was very angry. This was the first man who had not bothered about his murderous attitude, this was the first man who had said the truth as it was. Nadir Shah said "I will kill you!" The astrologer said "That doesn't matter – you can kill me, but I have to tell the truth. The truth is that if men like you do live, they should sleep twenty-four hours a day and drink as much as they can!" 

Nadir Shah was so shocked but the man was so truthful that even Nadir Shah had to leave him alone. Even he could not gather courage to kill such a man. He felt shaken and he remembered him again and again: "What a man! Almost a dragon! He made me tremble ― the way he looked at me and the way he said things. I had never expected anybody would have such courage." But he respected the astrologer. 

Yoga can make a person live long, but what will you do? That physiological part should not be paid so much attention. Yes, a little bit is good to keep physically fit, but just a little bit; otherwise it is a vast jungle. One can be lost in its subtleties, in its complexities. 

The second part is even vaster than the physiological. If you get into it you can have many psychic powers, you can read people's thoughts. But what is the point? Your own rubbish is so much, what is the point of reading somebody else's rubbish? He is tortured by his rubbish and you are reading his thoughts ― and you think you are doing something great!

The real thing is to get rid of thoughts, not to read them. One even has to get rid of one's own thoughts; what is the point of reading other people's thoughts? And what is there? You can stand by the side of the road and you can see a man is walking along and thinking of his dog ― so what?

If you listen to people's thoughts, what will you find? Somebody is thinking of his cow, somebody is thinking of his buffalo, somebody is thinking of his wife, somebody is thinking of somebody else's wife! And you are thinking what they are thinking! Maybe the other person is also a yogi and is reading somebody else's thoughts. Then things become very complicated! 

The physiological part is ordinary, the psychological part is ordinary. Both can give power, but power is not the goal of meditation. Power is politics, all kinds of power is politics. And power corrupts ― all kinds of power ― it corrupts unconditionally and absolutely. It always corrupts. 

Hence I say the only essential thing, the real core of all religion, of all yoga, of all methods of search, is meditation. One should put aside everything non-essential. You can use things as stepping stones, but not more than that ― just like jumping boards. You need not bother too much about them. Your whole concern should be one-pointed; you should move like an arrow towards meditation. Only then in this small life, with so little time, power and energy available and with so many problems surrounding you, can you hope that the arrow will reach the target.

The moment you know something of meditation ― not about it, but the very taste of it ― a great release comes. a great relief comes. Suddenly all tensions disappear: anxieties, anguishes, are found no more. Even if you want them just for a change, you cannot find them. I have tried and failed! Sometimes I try very hard to find some anxiety but I cannot, it simply does not work. I have tried all possible ways, from this side and that side, but I come to the same end: it does not work. 

Once you have tasted meditation it is impossible for you to be in any misery. Bliss becomes inevitable, a natural showering, and it goes on showering like flowers showering from the sky.

In February, bliss poured down, Osho consciousness absorbed into us. Who missed it, they missed to witness the density & intensity of another dimension of life, which is beautiful & joyful. Here we have another opportunity to go into the same realms and dance into high crescendos of energy, meditation, celebration and love. No language or words can describe the experience, but your own availability & presence can feel it.

We received several beautiful impressions from friends who joined last time. Here I mention a few:


The Very best Valentine.(By Sally Henderson, Ma Prem Geet). 
Read her heartfelt expression of the meditation camp.

"... Swami Anand Arun arrived at Zorba Studio as the most blessed Valentine ever.  He delivered an awe-inspiring 3-day meditation retreat with boundless joy for sharing the love and compassion of uniquely individual Spiritual Master Osho."


Prateeksha"Being in my 27th year with Osho, I am in deep gratitude for the experience of the purest medium for Osho that I have been blessed, through Swami Arun. Swami Antar Rakesh just go about Osho with complete dedication that results in an Osho center that is pure Osho and feels like Pune to me. Osho quit giving the energy Darshans in Pune before I was initiated and I experienced my first Osho energy Darshan Saturday night. I never felt Osho any stronger. Swami Arun comes to Zorba Studios in June and I only live an hour away!" - Ma Govind Prateeksha

“ It was all there; Love, Joy, Fun, Friends, Laughter and to top it off we got to play in the snow! ” - Douglas Grummons



Swami Arun is an early and beloved disciple of Osho. He has been conducting Osho Meditation Camps for 35 years. In 1990 he founded Osho Tapoban, a large flourishing Osho Commune in Nepal. For more info. visit

In 1986, Osho appointed Swami Arun Director of Meditation and Spiritual Growth of the Rajneesh Mystery School. Swami Arun now travels to America, Canada, Italy, Germany, France, Russia, Ukraine and India, leading meditation camps. In these meditation camps he has initiated more than 65,000 sannyasins from 30 different countries. Swami Arun travels the world, sharing the bliss of meditation and the blessings of Osho.

During the retreats, Swami Arun will teach several different Osho meditations: some are active, some passive & quiet. Each evening, there is dancing, celebration and sannyas initiation. You may attend the entire retreat or just part of it.

To experience a retreat with Swami Arun is a precious gift you give yourself. The deep values and benefits received will last all your life. Many people travel to Nepal and India for this kind of energy and transformation.

There will be an opportunity to take Sannyas for those who are interested.

We look forward to sharing this beautiful time together & invite you to come, join this caravan of meditation, love, laughter, and celebration!

Space is limited. When the retreat is full, names will be accepted for the waiting list.
