Coming: A Biography of Oshos Secretary Ma Yog Laxmi
Posted by OWF    Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 02:17

'Only One Life' is the title of a biography of Osho's first secretary, Ma Yog Laxmi, written by Swami Rashid which is due to be published in a couple of months. This was announced at a special celebration on the birthday of Ma Laxmi on 12 February 2017 at Oshodham, New Delhi.

Laxmi had only one life; we have so many - our family, our career, our friends, and so on - but she had only one life, only for Osho.

Four Osho sannyasins shared their experiences with Ma Laxmi on this well-attended event.

Ma Dharam Jyoti:
I had a heart-to-heart relation with Ma Yog Laxmi. I first met Ma Laxmi in Bombay just after Osho moved to this city from Jabalpur and found her to be a small, spited young woman who lived life on her own terms. Happy-go-lucky, she was involved in social work. During her participation at Nargol meditation camp conducted by Osho, she had a very deep experience which transformed his life. Then she started to wear orange clothes and Osho appointed her as his secretary. She worked non-stop from 8 a. m. to midnight every day attending to all tasks. Always fresh, her face was never tired. All her decisions were taken on what Osho said to her. After she took sannyas, she became even more dedicated and devoted to Osho. Sitting in one pose for hours, she was totally with Osho. I met her before she left her body and found her happy, relaxed and she still had only one concern: How Osho's work can move forward. I am truly inspired by her.

Swami Satya Vedant:
Always happy, always smiling, always laughing, Ma Yog Laxmi was totally surrendered to her master, Osho. When questioned on any task she accomplished or any major problem she faced, she always responded by saying, 'It is his Leela (play), not Laxmi.' Her surrender to her master was a hundred per cent'. She always lived in the moment, managed to accomplish a vast amount of work in a five minutes tackling different issues from kitchen to meeting the Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Always relaxed, she was totally in the present moment. The word disciple is related to discipline in English but in Sanskrit the word means one who learns, lives and breathes the master. Laxmi lived Osho, breathed Osho and remained with Osho all her life, like a true disciple.

Swami Anand Kul Bhushan:
Who is Ma Laxmi? A small, frail, fragile, delicate young disciple…. No. she was not just a body. She was only bundle of energy, Osho's energy. Anyone interacting with her was interacting with Osho's energy. In her every breath, her every heartbeat, every task, Osho energy was flowing all the time. Laxmi operated in two dimensions: Love and logic; sannyas and sansar. Love, total and unconditional surrender for her master; logic for the world. When she spoke about her master it was surrender, thankfulness and unbounded love every second of her life. When she dealt with contractors, bank managers, politicians and everyone else, it was sheer logic. Both these dimensions flowed at the same time. When she moved to Pune in 1974 with Osho, the commune was not very developed. But her devotion and dedication was greatly responsible for its rapid blooming. A top Indian magazine named her as one of the four most powerful women in India at one time. Her response was, "It's all his Leela!"

Once she was standing alone at an airport when an Osho lover asked her," Ma, are you alone?" She turned to her side and said, "No, he is here with me."

Before coming to Delhi for her work, she would contact Swami Om Prakash Saraswati for assistance who, in turn, would depute Swami Atul Anand to be with her round the clock. So her of work, style and surrender permeated to both of them and thus lives till today.

Swami Atul Anand:
I first met Ma Laxmi in Bombay and last met her in Bombay. Whenever she came to Delhi, I was with her to work for her current mission. It is my great good fortune that I was blessed with her presence. In fact, this is the great fortune of my life. Of course, Osho is the biggest thing in my life but she was my gateway to Osho. She was always transparent and devoted to Osho.

The three stages of learning are: student, disciple and devotee. Very few people graduate to become devotees at the feet of their master. Only by becoming a devotee, they can be transformed as in the same of Laxmi. She was at her peak in Pune O

Ma Darshan
Posted by OWF    Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 01:20

Ma Darshan (Walia) took sannyas in the early seventies and was always part of the Pune commune; whenever we visited, she was there. She contributed generously, and several times, to the publication of Osho’s books.

In one of the Hindi discourses Osho says: “Darshan is Bhairavi.* Her love for me is eternal. She will never ever leave me. Whenever I would look back I will always find her standing behind me.” She was often invited to sit with Osho when he had his meals.

In recent years, due to ill health, she moved back to Mumbai to stay with her husband. She was 86 years old when she died.

Friends say about her:

“She was always fun to be with and often invited friends for lunch or dinner; she was of a very sharing nature.”

“She lived her life fully. A very nice person with a good understanding, loving, laughing, enjoying.”

* “‘Bhairava’ is a specific term, a tantra term for one who has gone beyond. That is why Shiva is known as Bhairava and Devi is known as Bhairavi — those who have gone beyond the dualities.”

Yoga Mukta (aka Greek Mukta, Catherine Mathilda Gregos) was born to a wealthy Greek oil shipping magnate. She married the grandson of the great statesman Elefthérios Venizélos, the maker of modern Greece. She had three daughters, Arietta, Seema and Neeta.

She met Osho in 1971 and remained close to him for many many years. She donated a massive fortune to the commune when Osho established himself in Pune in 1974. Everybody who was in Pune in those early years remember her sitting on the steps of Krishna House in the afternoons with a little note pad to take appointments for the darshans. She was then always sitting on Osho’s right informing him who was next, their names and why they came to see him.

In the commune her work was to take care of Lao Tzu garden around Osho’s house which she had to let go wild like a tropical jungle, according to his instructions. She was often seen at Lao Tzu gate during her breaks.

Mukta was part of the 21, the Inner Circle, for many years. After Osho had left his body she spent time in Pune but also loved travelling, in India and abroad. She then moved to Innsbruck, Austria to be with her lover and caretaker, Antaro. During those years sadly many friends had lost the possibility of having direct contact with her. She was diagnosed with dementia and spent a few years in a home. Mukta died just a few days after her 87th birthday.

मुद्रा दो कौड़ी क
Posted by admin    Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 06:05
सद्गुरु ओशो ने कई साल पहले एक प्रवचन में कहा था. (तुम जिसको पैसा समझते हो वह एक मान्यता है अगर किसी दिन सरकार बदल जाए और रातोरात यह एलान किया जाए कि फला फला नोट नहीं चलेगा तो तुम क्या करोगे ??

मान्यता को बदलने में देर कितनी लगती है??

चंद कागज के टुकड़ों पर किसी का चित्र और हस्ताक्षर करने से वह मुद्रा बन गई और व्यवहारिक काम में आने लगी...

अब मान्यता बदल गई तो वह मुद्रा दो कौड़ी की हो जाएगी ...
सारा खेल मान्यता का है....

थोड़ा मान्यता से ऊपर उठो उसे देखो जो है धन के पीछे इतना भी मत भागो कि वह भी ना देख पाऊं जो देखा जा सकता है....)

कई सालों पहले की गई यह बात आज भी सार्थक लगती है 500 - 1000 के नोट नहीं चलने की बात पर...

सच्ची बात है बुद्ध पुरुषों की बात सालों बाद समझ में आती है ....
