Having this feeling in their hearts Osho disciples around the world celebrated Osho's birthday on December 2005.
The Master's Birthday celebrations began at Osho World Galleria, New Delhi on 5th December at 6.00pm and the week was inaugurated with celebrative Sufi songs rendered by Rashmi Aggarwal.
"Nanak's path to supreme realization, to godliness is scattered with song and flowers," says Osho. "Whatever he has said was said in verse. His path was full of melody and soft, filled with the flavor of ambrosia. Nanak says there is music at His door. No, music is His door."
Osho, the enlightened mystic of modern times, speaks of being in the world and yet not of it, of knowing life as a leela, a cosmic play. During the eighties, the Osho Ashram Theatre Group staged plays of Shakespeare in several cities. Audience and critics both appreciated them.
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.
Eastern religions regard the “guru” or the “master” at par with God because he becomes the door to god-realisation. Mystics such as Kabir sing that he can even forsake God for Guru he showed the path to godliness. This is the ultimate relationship, an unparallel reltionship in human experience, between the master and disciple.
"Play of Clay", an exhibition of Studio pottery by Meena Vohra was launched at Osho World Galleria, Ansal Plaza the 8th of July. Renowned Odissi dancer Ranjana Gauhar and Ceramic artist P.R. Daroz launched the exhibition.
An oasis of calm in the chaos of the marketplace, the Zen-like aura of Osho World attracts first-timers and loyal followers alike. Even if you are untouched by Osho's philosophies, the mystical instrumental music playing in the background, books waiting for you to be discovered and numerous lifestyle items promise a relaxing and de-stressing sojourn at the outlet on the fourth floor of Forum.

Osho World dedicated a week to the mystic poet Kabir from June 20th at the galleria. During the inauguration renowned classical vocalist Meeta Pandit dedicated a melodious evening to the enlightened master as she rendered the verses of Kabir to a houseful gathering.

Acknowledged musicians of the day have been generous in showering praise for her music. She has emerged as a shining star in the world of classical music.

LEELA is a beautiful concept. It relaxes you tremendously, absolutely. If god is in LEELA, then don't be serious and don't keep long faces; there is no need. Become more playful. Life is a sport. Look at life with the eyes of play, non seriously.

Osho, the enlightened master of the modern times, gave many discourses on the oneness of the guru and the disciple.
