Osho World dedicated a week to the secular mystic poet Kabir from 1st to 7th June, 2004 at the galleria and paid homage to His devotion and wisdom through daily meditations and events.
Eminent Journalist and Foreign Policy expert, Dr. Ved Pratap Vedik, who is an avid Osho lover, inaugurated the weeklong event.
Osho is a contemporary mystic whose clarity, insight and humor have touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In many of His discourses He has spoken extensively on the works and life of Saint Kabir.
Though Kabir lived several centuries ago, Osho creates a bridge with him. Through his own innately musical expression he enhances Kabir's message, rendering it accessible and relevant for every contemporary seeker.
Osho says, "Kabir is a celebrant. He celebrates all-all colors of life, the whole rainbow of it. What he is going to say to you is not philosophy but pure poetry. It is not religion but a hand beckoning, a door half opened, a mirror wiped clean. It is a way back home, a way back to nature."
Kabir is life-affirmative. That too is an indication of a real man of understanding.
Osho explains, "Kabir's Words are unique. It is difficult to find a mystic like Kabir in the history of the whole world, because he is raw, uneducated; whatever he says, it has no way of coming from the scriptures. He is quite unacquainted with the scriptures, he has no treasure of great value in words. The words he uses are of the marketplace, of the day-to-day use. But in those words he has poured everything, which even for the seers of the Upanishads has been difficult to pour in all their purest of word forms"..
