About Osho:

“Never Born — Never Died — Only visited this planet Earth between December 11, 1931 and January 19, 1990.”

Osho (1931-1990) is a contemporary mystic whose life and teachings have influenced millions of people of all ages, and from all walks of life. He is also known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His unique "Active Meditations" are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is easier to experience the thought-free and relaxed state of meditation.

For his disciples, Osho is the Master of Masters, an Oceanic man. A man who humanized the divine.


About Sambodh Viram:

Viram grew up in a small village in Holland close to vast woods and a river. His amazing life journey took him all over the world. He was a swimming and athletic champion and played professional soccer. At age 27 he was accepted as a student at the Ballet Academy in Tilburg in The Netherlands. His age as well as his soccer physicality was very unusual as his fellow students were between 6 and 16 years old. At 29 he passed the audition at “The Royal Ballet Academy” in Antwerp, Belgium and two years later in 1990 he became a student of Lynn Simonson and was dancing in New York City.

For two years, Viram was a student of master Masahiro Oki (Japan) and learned shiatsu, acupuncture, Feng Shui and received specific teachings to lead workshop for women. In 1990, he became a Reiki Master under the guidance of Phyllis Furumoto. Viram was the first Reiki master who brought Reiki to Taiwan in 1994. In 1993, he went to visit the “Osho Commune International” in Pune, India. He planned for 4 weeks, took sannyas and stayed for 7 years. From 1998 till 2009 Viram traveled several times a year to upstate New York to learn from Kwan Saihung. A Daost master from Huashan, China. In 2015, Viram moved to Taipei. He lives on a mountain close to a river and a National Park. With a deep love for master Osho, Viram at age 62, has remained his childlike quality and lust for life.

What we offer in VC:

1. 【one-to-one Blindfolded Walking & Running Fitness Session】(in Stanley Park, Lost Lagoon)

80% of your energy is lost through eyes. You are moving into world through eyes. So, when you get tired, the first thing is the eyes. The blindfolded Walking & Running can allow you to save this 80% of energy for your inner world. It has a meditative dimension that supports you to: feel more easily, expand the sensitivity of your heart, and clarify your mind. The essence of Blindfolded Walking & Running is to draw your attention away from the outside world and let you stay in contact with your body. It can bring you into a state where there is no time, no you, no me, no man, no woman but only just pure "being".

2. 【Homeopathy Soul Transmission】

What is soul? Soul is something that you can not "do". You can not make more soul. Soul is related to the deep acceptance of who you are. Soul needs love.

"Love is our longing. Just as the body needs food, the soul needs love — it is nourishment, spiritual nourishment. Without the food, air and water, the body will deteriorate; without love the soul starts shrinking." — Osho

And love is about understanding, about feeling connected. Homeopathy Soul Transmission can bring you a deeper understanding of yourself on a conscious level by cleaning up the cloud of negative energy around you.

3. 【Osho Sannyas Initiation】

If you are ready to take sannyas, feel free to send message to any of our organizers. You will receive a sannyas certificate and a mala mailed from Taiwan.

"Initiation into sannyas means that you are breaking away from your past: whatsoever it was — communist, Catholic, Hindu, Mohammedan — you are breaking away from your past. You are closing your past completely and starting afresh. This is a resurrection — a death and a resurrection: the death of the past and the resurrection of something absolutely new, so absolutely new that it has nothing to do with the past; it is discontinuous with the past." — Osho 《Zen: Zest, Zip, Zap and Zing》

“A disciple is not made, one has to become one. When you love someone, do you first ask the person? Do you first take the permission of the person? Love just happens. Love neither obeys any order nor takes any permission, nor does it believe in any modes or methods......It (discipleship) is the highest, the deepest name of love. If you want to love me, how can I stop you? If you shed tears in love for me, how can I stop you? And if you dive into what I call meditation, how can I stop you? Whosoever wants to be a disciple, no one can stop him.” — Osho 《The Diamond Sword, Number 8》

The magic in sannyas is not about Osho, is about you. How to take sannyas into your life, is up to you.
