Introduction

“I want my sannyasins to inherit my freedom, my awareness, my consciousness. And each sannyasin has to be my successor, has to be me. There is no need for anybody to dominate. There is nobody for anybody to dictate to. They are on their own. If they want to be together they can be together. Out of their own freedom, it is their choice and their decision. If they want to move free they have all the rights to move free.” OSHO Introduction Soon after Osho left His body in 1990 there have been attempts have been made to monopolise the legacy of OSHO. The Master’s Enlightened Art, His unique signatures and even the Meditation Techniques were applied for Trade Marks in USA and other countries.

Osho flat in murky waters

Pune Mirror | Sep 3, 2014, 02.30 AM IST By: Kaumudi Gurjar Cash-strapped commune was planning to sell late sanyasin’s apartment in KP, meant to be used as a library as per his will. Osho may have thought of money as a distraction against happiness, but the message clearly hasn’t trickled down to the Osho International Foundation (OIF), whose bank accounts in Switzerland were frozen by a Swiss court in June for misappropriation of funds. An apartment owned by a late Osho sanyasin, meant to be used as a library as per his will, was instead in the process of being sold off and the proceeds handed over to OIF, when the property agreement landed in the hands of sanyasins associated with the Friends of Osho group. The deal received a major setback after one of the group, whose...
