You are invited to celebrate New Year Celebration with Osho White Robe Evening meeting
Doors open at 6:00 pm to be ready for 6:30 pm, (we change into white robes for this event*see below this message for more information*) which will be the beginning of the Evening meeting.
The evening meeting is the time when everyone comes together to dance and celebrate and then to sit silently. "That which cannot be said has to be experienced. This is a great experience of getting into the inner space. Something is experienced in this gathering which no one has been able to define. This is the highest peak of the whole day's working, meditating or doing groups in the Commune." Osho The meditation starts with 10 minutes of high energy celebration where everybody is invited to participate and dance with totality. It reaches its climax with three shouts "Osho, Osho, Osho". In this context "Osho" is used as a sound, which helps to raise the energy even higher. He says of the word Osho, "It is not my name, it is a healing sound derived from William James' 'oceanic.'" This is followed by ten minutes of sitting silently with closed eyes. The more totality is brought to the celebration, the deeper the silence will go. During this time music alternates with silence, which is ended by three loud drumbeats. The silent sitting then continues to the sound of an Osho Videotape
Osho has described his speaking as a meditation. Just listening, the mind stops and we come into a state of silence, where we can access our inner core of our being, restoring energies and bringing us to a blissful state of relaxed awareness.
"The people who are with me are not my followers, they are just my friends. And my whole teaching is that they should become more and more independent of any organized religion, of any gurudom, they should be more individual and they should think for themselves. I do not teach faith. On the contrary I teach the reasoning, skepticism, intelligence, because faith has been the failure of the whole humanity. The people who believe are going to become blind. Every belief makes you blind. So my whole effort is to destroy all your beliefs, to deprogram you, and to leave you alone to be yourself."
Osho, The Last Testament, Volume 5, Chapter 18
