This is one of the powerful programs we offer only once a year depending upon the schedule availability of Swami Vedant. Swami Vedant, an earlier disciple of Osho, have been traveling and facilitating retreats for more than 30 years. It���s not uncommon to receive life transformation, long lasting impressions from such retreats. We don't have to travel to India or Himalayas to seek spiritual bliss and find true meaning of life, when the same phenomenon is available to us through such events.

We have received lot many words of praises from the people in New York and Atlanta who recently attended Swami Vedant's Osho Retreat.

Osho retreats are spontaneous series of events, meditation techniques, dance & celebration in high energy spiritual environment. Something cannot be explained in the words, but can only be experienced. You are new to meditation or experienced meditator, high energy space creates such a solid ground that experienced meditator can deepen their experience & people new to meditation will taste something their souls have missing for long time.

Don���t think twice, sign up & be ready to experience the ���unexperienced��� where personality dissolves, only the experience remains.

Here, Ma Prem Ganga from Atlanta share the beautiful expressions from her experience with Swami Vedant in Atlanta at Osho Meditation Retreat on Sep 31 -Oct 02

Read the newspapers and there is violence and chaos. Watch your favorite TV show and there is violence and chaos. You finally decide to escape and retreat into meditation and there is at least chaos in your mind. How can we find peace and tranquility and with an extra bonus of love? Osho, the Master of inner change provided the Atlanta community with Swami Vedant to facilitate our path to quietude through dancing, joking, meditation, food, and wisdom.


Osho tells us to ��have courage! When you jump into the Osho Mediation Camps all kinds of wonderful things will happen. In Atlanta we had our second camp of the year at Lake Acworth.�� The fall weather was conducive to sharing our Indian culinary delights outside near the beach and communing with nature. During one of the retreat sessions, ��Swami Vedant had us choose a tree to talk to. Maybe that sounds silly, but as I leaned over the tree and the branch supported my body, I became aware of how good it felt to have this external support. Of course I realized that the more I am able to go inwards and meditate the more I will not need an external support.


Ridding the chaos in our minds takes place through Osho���s incredible meditation techniques. Feel the need to scream at someone or something around you? Want to shake off all the stress? Our Master Osho has designed over 200 mediation techniques based on western psychology and eastern traditions to help us shake loose the ���garbage��� that surrounds us on a daily basis.�� Need to get rid of the tension in some additional way? How about some good jokes and high energy dancing? At the camp we danced until some of us fell down in a state of exhilarated exhaustion! Swami Vedant facilitated all of this using the teachings and energy of Osho.


Does the violence and chaos in the world and in your personal life burden you with continuing questions about���� the meaning of life and how to let things take their natural course? ��The Buddha says that when you become still, wonderful things will happen.�� Meditation is the path to becoming still. This is the happiness of the Buddha. We spent the time with Swami Vedant meditating using various techniques to quiet the mind.


After experiencing an Osho Retreat Week with Swami Vedant (who created a safe and caring environment for us), I can say that I experienced becoming still at times, effulgent at other times, and just down-right happy most of the time!��


Jai Osho,
Ganga

Zorba The Buddha Festival

A report from Osho Mediation Retreat at Chicago by Samir Khanal ��������

Description: http://oshoworld.com/NewsBoard/Img_A_three_days_meditation_and_celebration_at_Devalan_Lake/001.JPG

Zorba the buddha festival, as the name suggested was a meeting of Zorba the buddhas - Zorba "Celebration" and Buddha "Meditation". About 45 friends gathered for a three days meditation and celebration at Devalan Lake " House in the woods retreat" from 15 to 17 October 2010. The festival featured Swami Milarepa and his band (Ashik on violin, Chandira on Bass Guitar and Keyboards and Rishi on Drums) and Swami Satya Vedant.

We started from 10:30 am on Friday with Morning satsang meditation where live music took us into silence and meditative space. Five senses meditation followed In the afternoon and then the Kundalini Meditation. We watched Osho in the evening doing stop exercises and a beautiful Osho video discourse on Student-disciple-devotee which was much appreciated by everyone. The evening was concluded with Live White Robe brotherhood.

Description: Sw Vedant Milarepa ChicagoThe next two days had dynamic in the morning and the similar schedule followed, with a variety of Meditations like heart dance & Nataraj Meditation with live music and a sharing session where participants talked about their experiences and Swami Vedant answered queries. The last afternoon was very special with 4 friends being initiated into sannyas in a beautiful celebration.

The camp participants were a mix of first timers and regulars. This was my first exposure with Swami Satya Vedant, although I had participated in Swami Milarepa's Retreat at an earlier occassion. Both of these facilititaors beautifully complimented each other in Harmony. The Joys of Silence and Joys of Celebration were both deeply felt.

Description: Sw Vedant Milarepa ChicagoI thank myself for deciding to come. For people who did not know about Osho and Could not come, I have nothing to say, but people who knew these two fecilitators were coming and had thought to come, but could not come due to some reason, have missed it all.

I don't know if this combination could ever be possible again, but I wish it happens again.

Swami Murali and Osho chicago team did a great job is organizing everything, they deserve a lot of thanks and future help to organize more events again.

What an amazing weekend! So much love and so much sharing! I could only say "Thank you Osho, Thank you Bhagwan!"

Question ��� Beloved Master, What does Enlightenment feel Like?

��

Description: [Osho+small+size+photos+(176).jpg]

Osho

Prem Geetam, enlightenment is not a thought nor a feeling. In fact, enlightenment is not an experience at all. When all experiences have disappeared and the mirror of consciousness is left without any content, utterly empty; no object to see, to think about, to feel; when there is no content around you; the pure witness remains ��� that is the state of enlightenment.

��

It is difficult, almost impossible, to describe it. If you say it feels blissful, it gives a wrong meaning to it ��� because bliss is something contrary to misery and enlightenment is not contrary to anything. It is not even silence, because silence has meaning only when there is sound; without the contrast of sound there is no experience of silence. And there is no sound, there is no noise. It is not the experience of one, because what can ���one��� mean when only one is left? One can have meaning only in comparison with the other, with many. It is not light because it is not darkness. It is not sweet because it is not bitter.

��

No human word is adequate to express it, because all human words are rooted in duality��� and enlightenment is a transcendence; all duality left behind.

��

That���s why Buddha says it is SHUNYA. When he says it is shunya, void, emptiness, he does not mean that it is emptiness; he simply means it is empty of all content.

��

For example, a room can be called empty if all furniture has been removed, not a single thing is left inside ��� you will call the room empty. It is empty of all that it used to contain before, but it is also full ��� full of emptiness, full of roominess, full of itself. But nothing can be said about its fullness, its plenitude, because human language has no word for it. We have been trying for centuries to call it God, to call it nirvana, to call it moksha, but all words somehow fail.

��

It is difficult to translate something from prose to poetry, more difficult to translate from poetry to prose, because prose is on a lower level, poetry is on a higher level. It is difficult to translate from one language to another language, although all languages exist on the same plane. Why is it difficult to translate? ��� because there are subtle nuances to words. Those nuances are lost in translating, and those are the real things.

��

This is impossible: to translate something for which no word exists, to translate something that is transcendental into the languages which belong to the world of duality. It is like talking about light with a blind man; talking about beautiful music to one who cannot hear, who is deaf; talking to a person who is suffering from fever and whose taste is lost about ���sweet.��� The taste of sweetness is meaningless; he has lost all taste. But a little bit is possible because he used to taste before; he can remember.

��

But you cannot even remember when you used to taste God; you have completely forgotten the taste. Maybe in your mother���s womb there was some experience similar ��� maybe not exactly the same, but similar.

��

I cannot tell you what it feels like, but I can show you the way. I can push you into the abyss��� that is the only possibility. You can also taste it, and then you will become as dumb as I am, you will become as dumb as all the buddhas have been. Just try to see the point of translating.
