Pictures say it all
Manisha Koirala and Rajesh Hamal released nine Osho books published by Osho Tapoban under “Osho Books below the Cost Price” project. Speaking during the program, Manisha Koirala quipped, “I’ve always been inspired by Osho’s vision.” Koirala, who recently attended Vipassana Course also expressed her desire to come to Tapoban for longer stay and practice Osho meditation.
Rajesh Hamal, revealing his rather “dormant” spiritual façade had an interesting interaction with Swami Anand Arun, Coordinator of Osho Tapoban, where he asked several spiritual questions about success, desire and expectations, among others. After releasing the books, Hamal, also showed his famous dance moves to an enthusiastic crowd of over three hundred.
“Recently, there’s a surge in demand for Osho book in Nepal,” said Swami Anand Arun justifying the project “Osho Books below the Cost Price.” “Since, young student composite the large fraction of Osho readership, we’ve decided to provide Osho books in hugely subsidized price. We will also have a Mobile Osho library, which we plan to take to all villages and rural areas, where people have comparatively lesser access to Osho literature.”
A package of these nine books will be available for just Rs. 210, which is four times less the market price. “Sambhog se Samadhi ki aur”, one among nine published book, which is selling for Rs. 300 in market will be available for just Rs. 60.
Bollywood superstar Vinod Khanna who became a disciple of Osho in 1975 visited Osho Tapoban in Kathmandu on 2nd May 2011. Known as Swami Vinod Bharati in the Osho community, Bharati said that his main purpose behind coming to Tapoban was to pay homage to his master’s Samadhi in Tapoban where the sacred remains of Osho are kept inside a marble shrine. Vinod Bharati is also an old friend of Swami Anand Arun.
A beautiful garden/park has been setup in Osho Ashram, Champa.
“Osho Divine Garden” was inaugurated by Sw Anand Arun on 21 Dec. This special occasion was attended by more than 1000 Osho lovers and sannyasins from India & Nepal. This garden has been valued by everybody as a place of attraction for all at large.
We thank Sw Gyan Ekant for creating such a beautiful space for meditation and celebration.
Sw Anand Arun shared his wisdom titled “how to live a blissful life”. The talk was followed by question answer session where Sw ji lovingly shared Osho’s vision. He said “blissful life is the beginning of spirituality”.
Next day sannyas initiation was celebrated where 5 friends took sannyas.
