Osho World celebrated Mahavir Jayanti at the galleria on 22nd April 2005 by dedicating melodious evening with renown Violin player Asghar Husain.
Osho’s love for Mahavir is conspicuous by the volume of discourses He has spoken on Mahavir. In His discourses, Osho says, Mahavir was a very unique and rare flowering, a rare fragrance.
“Mahavir spoke out of his inner silence. His words are the most wonderful ever spoken.”
Osho brings out the essence of Mahavir through a beautiful story, “wherever he moved, for miles around life would become more alive. And he was an inactive man. He would simply stand or sit under a tree, for hours, for days, but for miles life would start throbbing with a new rhythm. It is said that trees would bloom out of season; trees would start growing faster than ever; dead trees would start producing new fresh leaves.”
“Mahavir was such a pool of energy, such an overflowing of energy, such an overflowing of God, that wherever he was, life would move faster. A speed would happen to all the existence around him. He would not be doing anything but things would start happening.”
Osho World dedicates this day to Mahavir through meditation and celebration.
For Violinist Asghar Husein, music runs in his blood. At the tender age of ten, he started learning Violin. His father Ustad Anwar Husain was a famous table player of his time, thus, the rhythm comes to him naturally. Having equipped himself in the art of violin playing. Asghar took his initial training from Ustad Gauhar Ali Khan and afterwards he became the disciple of violin wizard Ustad Zahoor Ahmad Khan of Delhi Gharana to satisfy his quest to final new horizon & learn more and more. At present, he is learning under the able guidance of Ustad Iqbal Ahmad Khan, the famous vocalist & head (KHALIFA) of Delhi Gharana. Ustad Sahab’s teaching has given Asghar’s violin a new dimension that depicts fine blend of “Gayaki Ang” & “Tantrakari Ang”.
