From early age Osho confronts existence as a free spirit, eager to experience life in first person, impatient to rules and regulations imposed or acquired blindly. At the age of 21 years – March 21, 1953 – Osho enlighten. He commented on the event : “Now I’m not looking for anything else. The existence has opened all the doors… When a flower blooms, I bloom too. When the sun rises, I rise with him. My body is part of nature, my being is part of the whole”.
Osho completed his studies in philosophy at the University of Sagar, graduating with highest honors and winning the first prize in the national championship of rhetoric. After completing his studies, he proceed as a professor of philosophy at the University of Jabalpur. At the same time, he travelled through all India to give lectures, challenging the religious leaders of strict orthodoxy, questioning traditional beliefs and meeting people from all social castes. He began to gather around him people who were able to understand his message.
Towards the end of the ’60s, Osho began to develop his original techniques of Dynamic Meditation, as he believes that modern man is so burdened by outdated traditions and anxieties of contemporary life that he should go through a process of deep cleaning.
In his speeches to the true disciples and researchers from all over the world, Osho has virtually addressed every aspect of the development of human consciousness. He does not belong to any religion or tradition: ” I represent the beginning of a totally new religious consciousness,” he says, ” Please do not connect to the past, not even worth to remember it”.
The transcripts of these talks are now published in hundreds of books in dozens of languages. He also says: “My message is not a doctrine, not a philosophy. My message is a form of alchemy, a science of transformation, so that only those who are ready to die in their present condition and be reborn into a new dimension so that they cannot even imagine it right now… just these few brave people will be ready to listen.”
Osho left his body on January 19, 1990. Only a few weeks before, he was asked what would happen to his work when he was gone. “My trust in existence is absolute. If there is any truth in what I have been saying, it will live. Those who are interested in my work, will keep the flame alive.“
