Here a few reviews:

Thank you, Swami Arun, for sharing your beautiful energy with us here in Texas. It truly is a gift that lasts a lifetime.



This was the most wonderful weekend! Full of love, full of fun! I laughed so much my sides hurt! Each camp has its own flavor and offers me new insights! Thank you SO much ZORBA studio for making this possible! Imagine the chance to meditate in a buddhafield and with such a large group of fellow meditators & sannyasins! My heart is full and I am still humming inside!

Ma Dev Jagriti

My heart is humming in sweet, sweet bliss. Aaahhh This! ~ Ma Govind Prateeksha



I was confused about many things in life. This retreat gave me a chance to rediscover and heal my being. It felt like the beginning of liberation from suffering!



Feeling a really virulent flare up of especially dirty I-ness, the spirit in me sought total relief at the feet of Osho’s most beloved disciple, Swami Anand Arun.

Thank God for Swami Arun, a radiantly alive being who heals the room with his presence.  He is the most ardent Osho lover, and his passion never waivers for even a moment.  Swami Arun is so madly in love with Osho that everyone wants to jump in the water with him.  He speaks for hours with overflowing love and admiration for the Master.   Beloved Osho is very much present through him. 

Swami Arun opened the three-day event by saying that there are no maps for the spiritual life, and that we journey through uncharted territory under an infinite sky. Indeed we are blessed to know Osho, to be sannyasins, and to have the guidance of Swami Arun who always gently offers truth.  The group of 84 participants, with thirteen new sannyasins, was captivated by Arun’s joy in sharing ..Click here to read the full review..

-Prem Geet

A truly wonderful retreat! Swami G. Was a rare privilege and a joy to experience. That retreat was put together with such love and and your heart permeated every aspect of it! The sentiment was extended to everyone.


Osho is Sinless Joy, Peace that passes all understanding, Energy that comes from Being.  Osho is found where two or more are gathered together. All is Bliss, Joy, Joy, Joy,In Love, with you,


Thank you for organizing this camp. Everything was wonderful. You could not have selected a better place for this. The location (B&B) is so much conducive to to the meditation. The living quarters and food were homely too. I felt like in an extended family. You were all very patient and loving. Even though it is my first time attending such a camp, everyone in the camp made me feel at ease.


My gratitude can't be expressed in words for organizing such a wonderful camp. Every minute of our stay was filled with love and laughter. It is my first time to see a group of people with so much compassion.


Will be back next years..

Death of Osho's Father and his Mahaparanirvana

On 8th September 1979, Osho's father, Dadaji or Swami Devateerth Bharti, dies enlightened. At the death celebration in Buddha Hall, Osho places flowers on his father's body and touches his head. Osho creates an annual festival on 8th September, Mahaparanirvana Day, to celebrate all sannyasins, past and future, who have died and will die. (The book Be Still and Know describes this celebration, illustrated with colour photos.)-

You ask: Would you say something about your father's death yesterday?


Vivek, it was not a death at all. Or it was the total death. And both mean the same thing. I was hoping that he would die in this way. He died a death that everybody should be ambitious for: he died in samadhi, he died utterly detached from the body and the mind.


I went to see him only three times during this whole month he was in the hospital. Whenever I felt that he was just on the verge, I went to see him. The first two times I was a little afraid that if he died he would have to be born again; a little attachment to the body was there. His meditation was deepening every day, but a few chains with the body were still intact, were not broken.


Yesterday I went to see him: I was immensely happy that now he could die a right death. He was no more concerned with the body. Yesterday, early in the morning at three o'clock, he attained his first glimpse of the eternal—and immediately he became aware that now he was going to die. This was the first time he had called me to come; the other two times I had gone on my own. Yesterday he called me to come because he was certain that he was going to die. He wanted to say goodbye, and he said it beautifully—with no tears in the eyes, with no longing for life any more.


Hence, in a way it is not a death but a birth into eternity. He died in time and was born into eternity. Or it is a total death—total in the sense that now he will not be coming any more. And that is the ultimate achievement; there is nothing higher than it.


He left the world in utter silence, in joy, in peace. He left the world like a lotus flower—it was worth celebrating. And these are the occasions for you to learn how to live and how to die. Each death should be a celebration, but it can be a celebration only if it leads you to higher planes of existence.


He died enlightened. And that's how I would like each of my sannyasins to die. Life is ugly if you are unenlightened, and even death becomes beautiful if you are enlightened. Life is ugly if you are unenlightened because it is a misery, a hell. Death becomes a door to the divine if you are enlightened; it is no more a misery, it is no more a hell. In fact, on the contrary, it is getting out of all hell, out of all misery.


I am immensely glad that he died the way he died. Remember it: as meditation deepens, you become farther and farther away from your body-mind composite. And when meditation reaches its ultimate peak, you can see everything.


Yesterday morning he was absolutely aware of death, that it had come. And he called me. This was the first time he had called me, and the moment I saw him I saw that he was no more in the body. All the pains of the body had disappeared. That's why the doctors were puzzled: the body was functioning in an absolutely normal way. This was the last thing the doctors could have imagined, that he could die. He could have died any day before. He was in deep pain, there were many complexities in the body: his heart was not functioning well, his pulse was missing; there were blood clots in the brain, in the leg, in the hand.


Yesterday he was absolutely normal. They checked, and they said it was impossible; now there was no problem, np danger. But this is how it happens. The day of the danger, according to the physicians, didn't prove dangerous. The first twenty-four hours when he was admitted to the hospital one month before were the most dangerous; they were afraid that he would die. He didn't die. Then for the next twenty-four hours they were still hesitant to say whether he would be saved or not. A suggestion had even come from a surgeon to cut the leg off completely, because if blood clots started happening in other places it would be impossible to save him.


But I was against cutting off the leg, because one has to die one day—why distort the body and why create more pain? And just living in itself has no meaning, just lengthening the life has no meaning. I said no. They were surprised. And when he survived for almost four weeks they thought I was right, that there had been no need to cut off the leg; the leg was coming back, becoming alive again. He had started walking also, which Dr. Sardesai thought was a miracle. They had not hoped for that much, that he would be able to walk.

Yesterday he was perfectly normal, everything normal. And that gave me the indication that now death was possible. If meditation happens before death, everything becomes normal. One dies in perfect health, because one is not really dying but entering into a higher plane. The body becomes a stepping-stone.

He was meditating for years. He was a rare man—it is very rare to find a father like him. A father becoming a disciple of his own son: it is rare. Jesus' father did not dare to become a disciple, Buddha's father hesitated for years to become a disciple. But he was meditating for years. Three hours each day, in the morning from three to six, he was sitting in meditation. Yesterday also, in the hospital also, he continued.


Yesterday it happened. One never knows when it will happen. One has to go on digging…one day one comes across the source of water, the source of consciousness. Yesterday it happened; it happened in right time. If he had left his body just one day before he would have been back in the body again soon—a little clinging was there. But yesterday the slate was completely clean. He attained to no-mind, he died like a Buddha. What more can one have than Buddhahood?


My effort here is to help you all to live like Buddhas and die like Buddhas. The death of a Buddha is both! It is not a death, because life is eternal. Life does not begin with birth and does not end with death. Millions of times you have been born and died; they are all small episodes In the eternal pilgrimage. But because you are unconscious you cannot see that which is beyond birth and death.


As you become more conscious, you can see your original face. He saw his original face yesterday. He heard the one hand clapping, he heard the soundless sound. Hence it is not a death: it is attaining life eternal. On the other hand it can be called a total death—total death in the sense that he will not be coming any more.

Rejoice! bestil09


And my father, before he died, told me, "Please forgive all of us—we were trying to make you part of the society. If you had not resisted so strongly we would have succeeded. But you were so strong in your struggle that we failed. But now I can say with great joy that our failure was good. Our failure gave you your individuality."


He died as a sannyasin, enlightened. In the whole history, it has rarely happened that a father has become a disciple of his own son. And the moment he became a sannyasin he behaved like a sannyasin—not like a father.


You say: When you came to say farewell to Dadaji on the podium in Buddha Hall, suddenly the area where you and Dadaji's body were became like a film. You both seemed to be without substance. The other half of the podium where Mataji sat, and the rest of Buddha Hall where we were all sitting, seemed normal. Just the part where you were seemed different. What happened?


Death, if it happens with enlightenment, is a tremendous experience. On the one hand the man dies; on the other hand he achieves the totality of life.


When I touched my father's seventh chakra, just on the top of the head, those who were perceptive, silent, meditative, may have experienced something strange happening. According to the centuries-old science of inner reality, a man's life energy is released from the center, the chakra, at which he was living.

Most people die from the lowest chakra, the sex center. There are seven chakras in the body from where life can go out of the body. The last is on top of the head, and unless you are enlightened life cannot go out from that chakra.


When I touched my father's seventh chakra, it was still warm. Life had left it, but it was as if the physical part of the chakra was still throbbing with the tremendous happening.


It is a rare happening. And in that moment it may have appeared to many that the small section on the podium where I was with my father's body was in a different world. It was, in a sense, because it was on a different level. Just by his feet was my mother…and ten thousand sannyasins in Buddha Hall—that was the normal world.


But something abnormal had happened. The chakra was still warm, the body was as if it was still rejoicing in the phenomenon. If you had eyes to see, then this distinction was bound to be seen.


It is good that it came to your vision, the difference. It is a difference of levels. The lowest is where most people are living, and the effort here is, in this mystery school, to bring everybody to the highest. psycho19

Osho refers to when he was a child with long hair which his father cut short; Osho went to the barber and had his whole head shaved, which caused his father much embarassment, as people thought he had died.

And this time when my father actually died, a friend inquired of me, wrote a letter, "What are you going to do about it? Are you going to shave your head?"


I said, "I did it in advance, forty years ago! And one can do it only once. Moreover, this time my father has not died; in fact, he has been dead up to now. This time he has entered into eternal life; he has tasted for the first time what life is. I don't consider him as dead: he has never been more alive."  special06

My father is no more, but I remember him in such moments, when I suddenly see that I am behaving just like him. When I see his picture I know that when I too am seventy-five, God willing, then I will look just like him. And it is so good to feel that I will not betray him, that I will represent him even to my very last breath….


My body functions exactly like my father's even in its illnesses. I am proud of it. My father suffered from asthma, so when I suffer from asthma I know this body comes from my father, with all its faults, flaws and errors. He was a diabetic, so am I. He loved to talk, and I have done nothing else all my life than talk. In every way I have been his son.


He was a great father—not just because he was my father but because even though he was a father, he touched the feet of his son and became his disciple. That was his greatness. Books08


I was worried about my mother when my father died. I could not believe that she would be able to survive. They had loved each other so much, they had almost become one. She survived only because she also loves me.


I have been continuously worried about her. I wanted her to be near me just so that she can die in utter fulfillment. Now I know. I have seen her, I have seen into her, and I can say to you—and through you it will one day reach the world—she has become enlightened. I was her last attachment. Now there is nothing left for her to be attached to. She is an enlightened woman—uneducated, simple, not even knowing what enlightenment is. That's the beauty! One can be enlightened without knowing what enlightenment is, and vice versa: one can know everything about enlightenment and remain unenlightened.
