"Meditation is not an effort against the mind. It is a way of understanding the mind.

Meditation is to help you get rid of all the hangover of the past, and all the projections and dreams of the future so that you can be herenow simply spontaneously."

Thank you, Swami Arun, for sharing your beautiful energy with us here in Texas. It truly is a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Pratima

-Pratima

This was the most wonderful weekend! Full of love, full of fun! I laughed so much my sides hurt! Each camp has its own flavor and offers me new insights! Thank you SO much ZORBA studio for making this possible! Imagine the chance to meditate in a buddhafield and with such a large group of fellow meditators & sannyasins! My heart is full and I am still humming inside!

-Prateeksha

I was confused about many things in life. This retreat gave me a chance to rediscover and heal my being. It felt like the beginning of liberation from suffering!

Sandip

-Sandeep

Feeling a really virulent flare up of especially dirty I-ness, the spirit in me sought total relief at the feet of Osho’s most beloved disciple, Swami Anand Arun.

Thank God for Swami Arun, a radiantly alive being who heals the room with his presence.  He is the most ardent Osho lover, and his passion never waivers for even a moment.  Swami Arun is so madly in love with Osho that everyone wants to jump in the water with him.  He speaks for hours with overflowing love and admiration for the Master.   Beloved Osho is very much present through him. 

Swami Arun opened the three-day event by saying that there are no maps for the spiritual life, and that we journey through uncharted territory under an infinite sky. Indeed we are blessed to know Osho, to be sannyasins, and to have the guidance of Swami Arun who always gently offers truth.  The group of 84 participants, with thirteen new sannyasins, was captivated by Arun’s joy in sharing ..Click here to read the full review..

A truly wonderful retreat! Swami G. Was a rare privilege and a joy to experience. That retreat was put together with such love and and your heart permeated every aspect of it! The sentiment was extended to everyone.

-Lawrence

Osho is Sinless Joy, Peace that passes all understanding, Energy that comes from Being.  Osho is found where two or more are gathered together. All is Bliss, Joy, Joy, Joy,In Love, with you,

-Joe

Thank you for organizing this camp. Everything was wonderful. You could not have selected a better place for this. The location (B&B) is so much conducive to to the meditation. The living quarters and food were homely too. I felt like in an extended family. You were all very patient and loving. Even though it is my first time attending such a camp, everyone in the camp made me feel at ease.

-Saila

My gratitude can't be expressed in words for organizing such a wonderful camp. Every minute of our stay was filled with love and laughter. It is my first time to see a group of people with so much compassion.

-Padma

Will be back next years..

ROLE OF A GURU

By Osho

osho

This world of MAYA is not a world of MAYA for you; it is very real, and the role of the guru is to show you that it is not real. It is real for you, so how can you think that it is unreal? You can think about unreality only if you have a glimpse of the real; only then can you compare. This world is not MAYA illusory, for you. You have heard, you have read that this world is MAYA, and you may have memorized it just like a parrot, so you also call this world illusory.

Everyday someone comes to me who calls this world illusory and then he says, "My mind is very much bothered. I am very tense, so tell me how to attain peace?" And this world is "illusory"! If this world is illusory, how can your mind be tense? If you have known that this world is illusory, the world will have disappeared, and with the world all its misery. But the mind still is. You don't "know" that this world is illusory.

In the morning when the sleep has disappeared, and with it the dream, are you worried about the dream? Are you worried that in the dream you felt ill or that you were even dead? While the dream was there, you were worried, you were ill, you were asking for a doctor, for some medicine. But in the morning, the moment you are not asleep and the dream has disappeared, you are not worried. Now you know it was a dream, and you are not ill.

If someone comes to me and says, "I know that it was a dream that I was ill, but now tell me something: where am I to get the medicine to get over that illness?" what will it show? It will show he is still asleep; it will show that he is still dreaming. The dream is still there.

In India, this parrot-like speech that "the whole world is illusory" has gone deep into the mind, but in the false center. It is not a growth. We have heard, the Upanishads, the Vedas and the RISHIS have been saying for centuries, that the world is illusory. They have propagated the idea so strongly that those who are asleep and dreaming, they think they are awake. The whole world is asleep, but their misery shows that the world is real, their anguish shows that the world is real.

The role of the guru is to give you a glimpse of the real -- not a teaching, but an awakening. The guru is not a teacher: the guru is an awakener. He has not to give you doctrines. If he gives you doctrines, he is a philosopher. If he talks about the world as illusory and argues and proves that the world is illusory, if he discusses, debates, if he intellectually gives you a doctrine, he is not a guru, he is not a master. He may be a teacher, a teacher of a particular doctrine, but he is not a master, not a guru.

A guru is not a giver of doctrines. He is a giver of methods -- of methods which can help you to come out of your sleep. That is why a guru is always a disturber of your dreams, and it is difficult to live with a guru. It is very easy to live with a teacher because he never disturbs you. Rather, he goes on increasing your accumulation of knowledge. He helps you to be more egoist; he makes you more knowledgeable. Your ego is more fulfilled. Now you know more, you can argue more. You can teach yourself, but a guru is always a disturber. He will disturb your dream and your sleep, and you may have been dreaming a very beautiful dream. You may have been on a trip, a beautiful trip. He will disturb it, and you will get angry.

A guru is always in danger from his disciples. Any moment they can kill him because he is going to disturb; that is what his work is. He cannot help you to be yourself as you are because you are false. He has to destroy your false identity. It is painful. That is why, unless there is a very deep love, the work is impossible. A very deep intimacy is needed; otherwise hate will be there. So a guru cannot allow you to be near him unless you have surrendered; otherwise you are going to be an enemy. Only with your total surrender can a guru work, because it is a spiritual surgery.

Of necessity, much suffering will be there for the disciple, and if he is not in deep intimacy with the guru it is impossible. He will not be ready to suffer so much. He has come in search of bliss and the guru gives him suffering. He has come to feel euphoria, and the guru creates a hell for him. In the beginning hell will be there because your image will be shattered, your expectations will be shattered. Whatsoever you have known, you will have to throw it. Whatsoever you are, he will undo it. Really, you are passing through a death.

In India, in the old days, we said, "ACHARYA MRITYUH." It means that the master, the guru, is a death. He is! And unless you trust him so totally, this surgical operation is impossible because in the beginning there will be suffering. Your anguish will come up; all your suppressed hells will be revealed. And only if you believe, if you have deep faith and trust in him, can you remain with him; otherwise you will escape, because this man is disturbing you completely.

So, remember, the guru's work is, his role is, to make you aware of your falsity, and because of your false center your world is false. The world is not really illusory, it is not MAYA. It is maya because your eyes are illusory. They are dream-filled. You project your dreams all around, and the reality is falsified. The same world will become real when your eyes are real. When the false center is broken and you are again rooted in your real center, in your being, this world will become the NIRVANA.
