Osho and his unique thoughts


Osho is known around the world for his revolutionary thinking and thoughts. His thoughts have helped many people around the world in awaking their souls and becoming good human beings. In his life time, he presented his thoughts on many matters and issues; therefore, it is not possible for me to summarize all his thoughts here. However, we can discus few of them. First great thought of the Osho is about revolution and therefore, he wanted every human being to be a revolutionary. According to him only a revolutionary can create a world which is free of wrong practices. His thoughts always motivate people to break old barriers and live their lives in a revolutionary way. By revolution, he means the revolution of mind and soul together. According to him, we require a new revolution in this world for turning it in to a place which becomes a celebration for all and not a world which is full of grieves and unhappiness.

Second great thought of the Osho is about the way of meditation. As he himself being a great revolutionary, therefore he totally revolutionized the whole concept of the meditation. Many of mediation techniques stated by him are trademarks of the Osho and are highly effective and simultaneously simple as compared to other mediation techniques. According to Osho, we can perform mediation anytime and anywhere; and for this we do not require any special training. He was so great in doing so that he converted simple breathing in to a great meditation experience. People can easily find many of his meditation techniques by visiting osho.com. Many people around the world have got lot of help from Osho’s teachings of meditation because of their great effectiveness and simplicity.

In coming articles I will discuss more about the beloved Osho.

A Foggy Evening with a beautiful Woman

It is the story of last winter. Most of the north India comes under dense fog in this time of year. I was on travel that time because of touring job. I was in the city of Varanasi of India. It is a beautiful city at the bank of holy river Ganga. Fog was so dense that nothing was clearly visible after 10 meter distance. I took the hotel near Ganga River from where one can see the beautiful flow of Ganga. My hotel was half empty because of the off-season.

I was staying in the room number 306. For the whole day I worked in the city and came back to the hotel in evening. However that evening had something special stored for me. I decided to watch TV inside my room as nothing was visible outside because of fog. It was 5:30 PM; suddenly some body knocks at my room’s door. I thought it must be the waiter of hotel who must had come for enquiring about the night’s dinner.

As I opened my room’s door to my surprise, I saw a beautiful lady standing in front of me.She was a beautiful woman in her late twenties. She was dressed up like traditional Indian married woman. Before I could ask her some thing, she told me that she wants to talk to me. I asked her to come inside the room. She sat in front of me on the chair. She told me that she was from Calcutta and just come to visit this place.

Her words found me some suspicious, as in India it is not safe for woman to travel alone and it is not practiced also. There are lot of cases happened daily in India, where people are made fool by the unsocial elements.I decided to listen to her more. She was really a beautiful woman and her voice had some unknown attraction. She told me that she was in desperate need of some one because she can not do it alone.

I asked her to be more specific. She told that she was running from her home, as her parents wanted to marry her with some one else, whom she didn’t love. She loved a man from this place and he had told her to come to this. However she was waiting him from the morning still nobody has turned up.I told her what I could do for her. She told me that you looked to me a good person; therefore I require your help to go to his house.

I did not know way, I got convinced with her words and decided to go with her. Inside-inside I had started liking her. We come out of the hotel and started journey towards the place. Fog was very dense and early night was also making it difficult to see. However she was walking very fast. I was only trying to follow her. After the ten minutes of walk some body hold my hand from the behind. I looked back it was an old man.

He told me where you are going, are you mad. I told him why? He told me you are running towards the deepest and fast flowing part of Ganga. Anybody who drowns their never come back. I told him what about the woman. “Who were you talking about? There was no one except you”, he told. Suddenly a fear runs through my whole body. Now I am able to hear the flow of Ganga. I thanked the old man and came back to my hotel. From the reception I enquired about the woman staying in the hotel.

He told me that there was no woman staying in the hotel. I told him the whole story. Then he told me that two years back a woman had stayed in room no 306 and done suicide at that point because her lover doesn’t turned up. He told me last year also two more people died at the same location, which was also staying in 306. However he was happy that he had not listened any this kind of news this year. I thanked to the God and in the early morning I came back to my city.

An encounter with a beautiful Woman

Yesterday was a good day for me. As I seen the most beautiful women on earth. If anybody wants to know about how a beautiful women should be like then he should see her. She was wearing yellow sari with flowers printed on it. She was looking gorgeous. Anybody can fall in love with her in seconds. She was like a ready to marry woman, nobody would not think for seconds if he got chance to marry her.

Her hears were shoulder long. She had left her hears untied. Her hear were playing with her face, some times they come in front of her face and then she put then back with her hands.It looked like that a moon was coming out of black clouds. Her body color in very fair. Her hand and face is like a white ice, creating a sensation in mind to touch this ice. She walks like a sweet breeze. When she passes near me, I feel a strange feeling in my heart.

She as a whole was a great work of God. The person who will marry her will be very lucky one. I got the time to remain near her for whole day. Although there are lots of other people are also present. However my eyes were only searching for her glimpse. I want to see her and her more.I tried to see her many times. Soon she realized that I was trying to see her. Then after whenever I try to see her she was always seeing towards me.

In this the whole day passes and evening comes. I was standing on the side of my friends chair, she was seating in front of me. She was alone at that time. Now I can see her more clearly and she can also respond. Whenever I tried to see her, I recognize that she was already seeing. This is a good and strange situation for me. It looks like that she was interested in me.However I was always weak in this field. I have reached at this gesture at my times, but unfortunately not being able to cash this opportunity. Second I was their on official work.

Third the woman was so beautiful that I felt like small in front of her. Fourth the single day is very small times for me take any decision. Finally I decided to not to further involve in it and not see towards her. Soon she also realized this thing. Then comes the time of work off and she goes back to her home without seeing back towards me. At the end of day I lost again a beautiful woman. However still I am happy that I am fortunate enough to see a beautiful creature of God.

Love to all Arvind
