"Our father is our Sangeet Guru, but Osho is our Jeevan Guru, the master of our life, who gave us a new vision of life that enriched our music. As musicians we learnt from him how to be ego-less. The more we became ego-less, the more our music attained depth and refinement", said the renowned vocalist Rajan Mishra, while inaugurating Guru Vandana Week at Osho World Galleria, Ansal Plaza, New Delhi on august 10, 2003. |
"Whenever I had any problem in my life, I would open any page in any of Osho books-and you will not believe this-I found solution there. It was simply amazing. We are grateful to have this opportunity to pay a tribute to Osho with flowers of our songs", he added.
Pt. Rajan Sajan Mishra launched a MP3 CD and the book of Osho's ten discourses on Mystic Dadu-Sabai Sayane Ekmat. On this auspicious occasion, the duo were presented with a beautiful painting of their own picture created by a renowned artist Ms Bindu Popli, who is also a disciple of Osho.
The Mishra brothers sang a few melodious songs in praise of the Guru and enthralled the meditative listeners assembled at the galleria. The song " Sadho Aisa Hi Guru Bhave" touched people's heart while the last song Kare Kajarare Badra.in raga Megh Malhaar made the listeners totally blissed out.
Swami Upanishad, a very prominent Asian Rockstar, known as Shoukichi Kina from Okinawa, Japan, also came during the Guru Vandana Week and visited the galleria and Oshodham. He was a special guest at the "Dialogue among Civilizations" seminar jointly organised by UNESCO and the Govt of India and inaugurated by Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee.
Guru Purnima is celebrated by disciples in reverence towards all the enlightened masters of the past and present. Osho says: "And this Guru Purnima Day is the day of all the Buddhas, all those who have become aware. In their remembrance, become aware. .When you die in your Master as a man, you become divine. .A Master is a death and a resurrection. This day of Guru Purnima is a day of death and resurrection. It is no ordinary day -- it is very symbolic. .This death into a Master is what makes a man a disciple. It is no ordinary relationship; it is the only extraordinary relationship in the world. All other relationships are ordinary. All other relationships are part of the world. Only this relationship is not part of the world -- it takes you beyond. It is a golden bridge from the visible to the invisible, from the material to the divine, from the known to the unknown, from death to deathlessness. When you are listening to me - These words are not mine, these are the words of all the Buddhas. These words have nothing to do with me. I am no more here. I am functioning only as a hollow bamboo. These words are of all the Buddhas -- past, present and future, too. Because the message is the same, it is always the same, it is an eternal message -- Sanatan Dharma. It is an eternal message."
