Meditation doesn’t lead you to silence; meditation only creates the situation in which the silence happens. And this should be the criterion — that whenever silence happens laughter will come into your life. A vital celebration will happen all around. You will not become sad, you will not become depressed, and you will not escape from the world. You will be here in this world, but taking the whole thing as a game, enjoying the whole thing as a beautiful game, a big drama, no longer serious about it. Seriousness is a disease.

The qualities of a sannyasin
“I would like my sannyasins to live life in its totality, but with an absolute condition, categorical condition: and that condition is awareness, meditation. Go first deep into meditation, so you can cleanse your unconscious of all poisonous seeds, so there is nothing to be corrupted and there is nothing inside you which power can bring forth. And then do whatsoever you feel like doing.”Osho
And then we will conclude the evening with a Sannyas Celebration.
Sannyas means living life in a relaxed way, with no hurry, with no worry, as if nothing is serious, living life joyously, playfully, from moment to moment, not bothering about the past, not bothering about the future either, not bothering at all; whatsoever happens is good and whatsoever does not happen is also good. Taking things with such calmness and equanimity brings a restful spirit.
Slowly... Slowly the whole turmoil settles and suddenly there is bliss, out of nowhere it starts welling up. You become flooded with light, with life, with love. Those are the three dimensions of bliss. It makes you more Light-full, makes you more Life-full, makes you more Love-full. And when all these three L’s — these are the learned, one has arrived home.
Initiation into sannyas is a personal affair and the responsibility for fulfilling what is required as a sannyasin - in one word: meditation - lies with the individual. Sannyas is your decision, your inner move, it is not something given. In order to emphasize this and to express this understanding more deeply. The sannyas celebration is totally for the people who have decided to be sannyasins and "walk the path. Everyone else in the hall celebrates with them, around them.
What is a good sannyasin?
Osho : First, what is a sannyasin? Is one who has come to understand the futility of so-called worldly life. A sannyasin is one who has understood one thing – that
something needs to be done immediately about his own being. If he goes on drifting in the old way, he will lose the whole opportunity of this life.
A sannyasin is one who has become alert that up to now he has lived wrongly, has moved in wrong directions. has been too concerned with things and not concerned with himself, has been too concerned with worldly prestige and power and has not been concerned about who he is. A sannyasin is one who is turning towards himself. A sannyasin is a miracle – the energy is moving back towards oneself.
Ordinarily, the energy is moving away from you – towards things, targets, in the world. The energy is moving away from you, hence you feel empty. The energy goes away, never comes back; you go on throwing away energy. By and by you feel dissipated, frustrated. Nothing comes back. By and by you start to feel empty. The energy is just oozing out every day.
The greatest miracle in life is to understand this, and to turn the energy towards home. It is a turning-in. It is not that you leave the world. You live in the world – there is no need to leave anything, or go anywhere else. You live in the world, but in a totally different way. Now you live in the world but you remain centered in yourself; your energy goes on returning to yourself.
The new name that people take during the celebration can be chosen by them or for them. Symbolically having a new name is a way of breaking from the past and many people still choose to have a new name. There can be a great meaning in che new name that people take during the celebration can be chosen by them or for them. Symbolically having a new name is a way of breaking from the past and many people still choose to have a new name. There can be a great meaning in changing the name. It is symbolic.
"...The meaning of changing the name is that we break with the old identity. Now we go on a new journey with a new identity."Osho

Who is Osho?
Osho is a contemporary mystic from India who has been transformed, and impacted the life of millions of people through his unique meditation techniques as well as through his talks which have been transcribed and are already available as books, throughout the world in more than 50 languages. Osho is the most prolific author on this planet with over 650 books (64 million words) in print! He teaches creativity because that is the very essence of God. Osho left his body in 1990, yet the number of listeners, and Osho friend he has acquired has been growing exponentially. The reason is his wisdom takes you beyond time and causation, in the enlightened world that is beyond the mind.Just reading any of his books, you start to become a whole human being again because you're connecting to his consciousness which is at home, unified with Divine Source.The new man that Osho speaks about is one who is an authentic human being. Who is blend of a Zorba the Greek and Siddartha the Buddha. Someone who can let their hair down and dance in the moonlight while peacefully watching the swans sitting on the lake. After His enlightenment at the age of 21, Osho completed His academic studies and spent several years teaching philosophy at the University of Jabalpur. Meanwhile, He traveled throughout India giving talks, challenging orthodox religious leaders in public debate, questioning traditional beliefs, and meeting people from all walks of life. He read extensively, everything he could find to broaden his understanding of the belief systems and psychology of contemporary man. At one time, he had one of the largest private libraries in the world.
In the early 1970 the first westerners began to hear of Osho. By 1974, a commune had been established around Him in Poona, India, and the trickle of visitors from the West was soon to become a flood. In the course of His work Osho had spoken on virtually every aspect of development of human consciousness.
Osho developed 112 new forms of active meditation The best known is Dynamic Meditationwhich often starts with strenuous physical activity followed by silence and celebration. These were expected to lead the individual to overcome repression, lower their personal inhibitions, develop a "state of emptiness", and attain enlightenment. The person then would have "no past, no future, no attachment, no mind, no ego, no self." Anti-cult groups claimed that he urged his disciples to sever their connection to their families of origin. It is true that he felt that the institution of the family was out of date and that it should be replaced with alternative forms of community and ways of caring for children. However, he actually encouraged individual disciples to make peace with their families. Certainly a proposal to existence - that it is everyone's birthright to enjoy that same oceanic experience of true individuality. For that, Osho says, 'There is only one path, which goes inwards, where you will not find a single human being, where you will only find silence, peace.'
A conclusion? There are no full stops in the Osho vision, but a helping hand towards understanding ourselves: 'I would like to say to you: Science is the ultimate value. And there are only two kinds of sciences: one, objective science, that decides about the outside world; and two, subjective science.

" The mystic Osho is who is working with all possibilities to help humanity to overcome a difficult phase in developing consciousness".
His Holiness, The Dalai Lama
"When we wrote and prepared for shooting 'Vanilla Sky', I constantly checked in with Osho's insights. It is not so easy to present the unconscious mind with images and a story. Osho is the only one who can perfectly explain it all, the inner and the outer and that helped me and my team immensely".
Tom Cruise, Actor
"I've been charmed from reading his books".
Federico Fellini, Film Director
"Trough my friend Deepak Chopra I came across Osho's books which gave me an other deeper shift in my life. I regret I did not meet him in person, and I feel sorry the US Government missed such an opportunity back in 86".

"I was inspired by Osho's wisdom when I wrote the song 'How fragile we all are'; reading his books gave me hope for humanity. It is a must for everybody to have a look into his words ....."
