A cool breeze of Osho Consciousness is being deeply felt in the vastness of Himalayas. In Himachal Pradesh, there’s a newly opened meditation center Osho Nisarga in Dharmshala, lovingly created by Osho’s well-known disciples Swami Anand Tathagat and Ma Yoga Neelam who has been Osho’s secretary for India. This center is the most exquisite and modern center. In Uttarakhand, there’s another center lovingly created by Swami Narendra Bodhisattva, who is Osho’s long time disciple, and Ma Amrit Mukti, who has traveled with Osho around the world and cooked food for the Master. This commune is Osho Om Bodhisattva in Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand. Both of these Himalayan states have other smaller centers dedicated to Osho.
Besides these centers, there are regular meditation camps in Manali and Rishikesh. Every year in September Swami Vairagya Amrit and sometimes other sannyasins conduct Osho meditation camps in Manali, organized by Tao Vision. Swami Anand Arun conducts meditation camps in Rishkesh regularly.
In April, 2007 Swami Chaitanya Keerti and his friends will conduct Osho Dhyan Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh.

“It is said of one of the greatest poets of
Rabindranath has written six thousand songs. The great English poet, Shelley, has written only two thousand. Rabindranath has written six thousand poems. And every poem is a marvel in itself, a beautiful diamond, unique.
The friend was right. He said, ‘You can die with deep contentment, fulfilled. You have sung so many songs. Not even a Kalidas, not even a Shelley, can compete with you.’ And when he was saying this, tears were flowing in Rabindranath’s eyes. He couldn't believe it. He said, ‘You and crying! Are you afraid of death? I could never believe that a man who has been singing his whole life that death is the great friend - afraid of death?’
Rabindranath said, ‘No, not afraid of death. Death is beautiful, as beautiful as life. I am weeping and crying because better and better songs were coming lately.’
‘Up to now I was just a child. Now a maturity was happening, and God was giving me more and more. The more I sang the more was flowing out of me. In fact, now the veena was ready and the time has come to leave. This is unjust. Now I was feeling ready to really sing!’” ~ OshoI am thankful and indebted to dear Dolly for, through her i found this quote. ~keyur
