Osho Dhyan Mandir
Just think, one rose flower creates a certain fragrance around it, but then five thousand rose bushes and thousands of rose flowers will create a tremendous fragrance, a field full of rose energy.
If you even pass through that field without doing anything, your clothes may catch the fragrance, your hair may catch the fragrance. When you have passed through the field, you will be surprised that you are full of rose fragrance, it is all around you.
Exactly the same is the situation of the flower of meditation. It is subtler, but more powerful. Five thousand people functioning meditatively create a certain energy field. I call it the buddhafield, the field of awakening.
From Bondage to Freedom
Osho Dhyan Mandir, Oshodham
About 30 miles south, on the outskirts of Delhi, Osho Dham is a pristine and peaceful space for the spiritually inclined.
Founded by Swami Om Prakash Saraswati with the Blessings of Osho, Osho Dham has been a Budhafield for thousands of seekers to explore their inner treasures in deep silence. The whispering bamboos, twittering birds and rippling water in the sprawling intensely green surrounds of the place, only add to the profound silence that is continually throbbing here. Switching from laughter to silence and silence to celebration comes easy here, with Osho’s blessings showering all around. The casuarina trees sing songs of celebration and the pines whisper tales of being witness to the journey of thousands of seekers, into depths of meditation.
Oshodham is open 365 days a year and Meditation techniques are practiced in individual and group formats, both in the open as well as indoor areas. Robust facilities allow for Meditation that stops-at-nothing, not hail nor the baking sun. Seekers from India and the world-over, converge here to participate in Meditation retreats and benefit from the pulsating energy-field that has built up with the continued practice of Meditation over the last 25 years. The deep silences ingrained in every inch of Osho Dham are a reminder of the Master’s promise to be present when music and meditation happens.
Meditation groups range from daily sessions, 1-day celebrations, 3-day camps and upto 3 weeks’ retreats. A variety of modern accommodation seamlessly blends in with nature and is cautiously priced to suit every pocket. Wholesome meals are prepared on-site using ingredients sourced locally as well as grown in-house, that thoughtfully cater to the requirements of meditators.
Welcome to the Budhafield of Osho.
“A commune is an immensely spiritual phenomenon.
You are with people and yet you are alone.
Nobody trespasses on your aloneness.
Everybody respects your aloneness. You are with many people, you are together, but nobody tries to impose any condition, any relationship, any bondage. Nobody takes from you any promise for tomorrow, because tomorrow you will be different, the other will be different. Who knows about tomorrow? When tomorrow comes we will see.
The commune has no tomorrow, it lives here and now.”
From Ignorance to Innocence, Chapter #22
I must be the first enlightened person who is using therapeutic groups as a help to meditation, for the simple reason that in the past man was so simple there was no need for him to pass through therapies first. He was healthy in a way, saner in a way, authentic, truer, sincere and honest.
Modern man is cunning, very cunning, and very repressed, so much so that he himself is not aware what he has repressed in his being. And modern man is very clever, he is not simple. He is so clever that he can go on deceiving even himself. By deceiving others continuously he has become skillful in deceiving. The skill has become so ingrained that now no conscious, deliberate effort is needed for him to be cunning. He can simply be cunning without any effort on his own.
This changed situation demands new methods, new approaches, new windows, so new that your mind is at a loss what to do. If your mind knows what to do, the device cannot be of any help. The mind, when it is unable to find a way out, is at a loss — that is the great, precious moment when something of the beyond can happen.
