New Delhi: A recent order from the Mumbai Charity Commissioner has shocked followers of Osho, or Bhagwan Rajneesh, the Indian guru with piercing eyes.

As per the order, a huge chunk of land in Osho’s sprawling abode, once called the IBM of peace and love in Pune’s upscale Koregaon neighbourhood, will be up for sale.

The Commissioner, according to reports reaching the Indian Capital, has granted permission to Osho International Foundation (OIF) to seek a fresh bid to sell parts of Osho’s ashram in Pune, called Osho International Meditation Resort.

The OIF is based in Zurich, Switzerland.

The land, now marked for sale, is quite close to the Osho’s Samadhi area. It has an Olympic size swimming pool and tennis court and is called Osho Basho.

This order has been issued while the hearing on the last bid process that was started in July 2020 by OIF is still in process at the same Charity Commissioner of Mumbai office.

The swimming pool and tennis court area was developed as per Osho’s instructions. His guidance was that for many, sports like swimming and racquet play can become doorways to meditation. His insistence was that modern man will require modern methods to bring him to meditation. Over the last decades, thousands have participated in meditation in this part of the Osho Ashram and there is a special energy field created here, noticeable even to the first-time visitor.

So, plots 15 and 16 are indivisible units of a living energy field that Osho created for humanity.
