Osho, the enlightened mystic of the modern times, brought out the essence of Krishna as the symbol of all that is life affirmative, beautiful and celebrating. Krishna stands for "Samyama", that middle state where there is neither renunciation nor indulgence.
Osho says, that although Krishna happened in the ancient past he belongs to the future, is really of the future. Man has yet to grow to that height where he can be a contemporary of Krishna's.
To celebrate this very spirit of "Samyama", Osho World Foundation observed "Krishna week" from 19th to 25th August 2005 at Osho World Galleria, Ansal Plaza, Khelgaon Marg, New Delhi.
Padma Vibhushan Sonal Mansingh, dedicated an evening of dance and celebration to the lord of love at Osho World Galleria on Wednesday, 24th August, 2005, at 6.00 p.m
Osho World celebrates the divine love through the colors blue and green - also the colors of the monsoon.
Krishna is painted as blue. One of his names, Shyam, simply means blue, the blue one. His representation as blue is a symbol that he is a love god, that he represents love and the depth of the inner soul.
Osho World dedicates the month of August to "Krishna", spreading the message of the Master, Osho - Become love, and let blue spread all over your being. Become blue. Let it become your life symbol too.
An enamelware collection of wall plates and oil-lamps, rejoices with the harmony of these colours. This collection is a culmination of creativity with artistic workmanship as enamelling is not just a skill but an art that involves great precision. Also on display is a range of candle holders and floating bowls using a unique technique of fusing colored paper onto simple glass forms- the collection is a play of vibrant hues. Stealing from the colors of the monsoon - the clouds and the foliage, this collection creates a mystical magic as they light with the faint glow of candles filtering through the colored walls of the glass pieces.
The colors of love - blue & green also find way into the extensive ceramic & candle range- offering a unique pleasure of enjoying these bright hues in the everyday existence.
"Krishna is the only person in the whole history of
human consciousness who is tremendously in love with life,
with the poetry of life, with the music of life, with the dance of life.
He is not at all life-negative, he is very affirmative.
And he accepts life as it is; he does not put god and the world as opposites."
