  • "When you are not doing anything at all - bodily, mentally, on no level - when activity has ceased and you simply are, just being, that's what meditation is. You cannot do it, you cannot practice it: you have only to understand it." OSHO, "Meditation: The First and Last Freedom", paragraph  1, Witnessing the Spirit of Meditation. 

    This is an invitation to the seekers on the path to go into silence for two days with the help of Osho"s Active and passive  meditation techniques . Though this is an individual process yet it is always nourishing to have the support of the fellow travelers.

    You are invited to come and join this beautiful opportunity to explore the inner world.

    "Truth is not something that comes from outside, it arises out of the intensity of your silence. In fact the intensity of your silence, a great silence crystallized, is truth. Truth is not something other than silence. A small silence becomes the door to greater silences and finally the silence itself becomes so condensed that you find yourself. In that very finding you have found the truth. Then life is a sheer joy, a song, a dance, a celebration".

    Facilitator: Swami Amano's Inner Journey: 

    I started reading Osho in High School and visited Pune ashram many times to explore more. I participated in many of Osho's wonderful techniques, and I fell in love with Osho; I received Sannyas and Osho is my Master.  As my path continued, I could sense I was still missing. This longing which I felt, never let me rest. This inner quest inspired me to explore different meditation techniques and to visit many ashrams and meet various teachers. Although I enjoyed immensely, I sensed I was still missing something. This pushed me to go deeper and start sitting silently.

    After a while, and under the guidance of Swami Baba Purnananda Bharti, (himself a long-time and very devoted Osho sannyasin), I began to experience different dimensions of being which I had never heard or read about. Slowly, my silence deepened and my thirst became unbearable. Ultimately the moment arrived when the mystery of existence was revealed. Since then life is blissful, but so many friends are suffering and are longing to go deeper, so I would like to share something of what has come to my understanding about the mystery of the inner search with other spiritual seekers. The best way I sense to offer assistance at this time is through silent sitting and conversation.
