Silence usually is understood to be something negative, something empty, an absence of sound, of noises. This misunderstanding is prevalent because few people have ever experienced silence. All that they have experienced in the name of silence is noiselessness. But silence is a totally different phenomenon. It is utterly positive. It is existential, it is not empty. It is overflowing with a music that you have never heard before, with a fragrance that is unfamiliar to you, with a light that can only be seen with your inner eyes. It is not something fictitious; it is a reality, and a reality which is already present in everyone-just we never look in. Your inner world has a taste of its own, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent, immensely silent, eternally silent.~ OSHO Having difficulty sitting in silence for meditation? Swami Purnananda Bharti will guide us and teach us the Art of Silent Sitting. This event is a result of his two previous visits to North America. Friends in USA and Canada were fortunate to be in his loving presence during his last two visits and requested us to organize longer silent retreat with him. We are grateful to be presented with this opportunity again to delve into ourselves in his presence. It is very hard to describe who Baba is; he is a lover and a devotee of Osho who has imbibed Osho's message and grace. Baba lives in India in an ashram on the banks of river Narmada, his lovers visit him to sit and meditate in his loving presence. This is a loving invitation to seekers in North America to use this opportunity to be in silent communion with Baba. This workshop involves Osho meditations, Silent sitting sessions and Q/A sessions. Due to overwhelming demand, space is limited for this event. Advance payment is required to confirm your spot. Please contact us for details. Single, double and triple occupancy rooms are available at this award winning retreat center where spiritual teachers like Eli, Gangaji, Swami Premodaya and others have held their retreats in the past. Our group will have exclusive use of the facility which can hold up to 125 participants.

Then you can be a witness, If you don’t accept yourself how you can be a witness , you will be always busy trying to change yourself , fighting with yourself. The DOER will be always more important than the WATCHER for you. So just accept yourself AS YOU ARE. Slowly slowly you will understand this mystery , and you will be able to accept everything as it is , the all Existence AS IT IS. Then you will live as a perfect witness. Just like an actor who is playing his character role in a movie. He is acting as his best , but he knows that he is not the movie happening around him , and he knows he is not the character role that he is playing. He is only the actor. And you are only the witness." BABA "The Spiritual Journey needs commitment and patience. Don’t be in a hurry for Enlightenment, or it will become an obstacle. There are people that are with me from twenty years, and still they have not solved all their problems. When they first arrived to me they were suffering in their minds, but they have a meditative space now, and mostly they are enjoying themselves. They earned it in all these years, meditation after meditation, with continuity and patience. And yes, few seekers have attained with me, and now they are free. But the majority of seekers need a longer journey. In life, everything valuable needs time to get, and Enlightenment is the most precious of all things, it is for eternity. It will grow like a flower inside you, in its own time, in its own season. It will depend on your thirst and surrender in meditation, and on your stage of purification of your unconscious mind. Leave it to Existence. But people who are sincerely meditating with me, are enjoying themselves more and more each year. It is a beautiful journey. Be patient and enjoy. “ BABA ( translated by Ma Prathna, excerpt from the Hindi video “ Baba in Ganga Dham 2010 “ ) Questions - If you have any additional questions then please reach out to any organizer via meetup message or send email to [masked] or call[masked]
