Guru Purnima was celebrated in Oshodham on 7th July. It became a festive affair with about 300 Osho lovers joining in the celebrations. A meditation camp was organised from 3rd to 7th July and conducted by Swami Chaitanya Keerti. On this occasion 12 people were initiated into neo-sannyas. Guru Purnima is the celebration of a disciple’s gratitude and his explicit faith in his Guru. It is the occasion when a disciple pays his respects and expresses his reverence towards his Guru.
Osho says Guru Purnima Day is the day of all the Buddhas, all those who have become aware. In their remembrance, become aware. The grove is here in front of you. You can see that luminous light. It is here! You can hear that celestial sound; that music is happening. And you can be soaked into my fragrance. It depends on you -- how much you are ready to take, how much you are willing to take, how much you are going to be with me, how deeply.
The month of July began in Oshodham with ‘Osho Meditation Camp’ conducted by Swami Chaitanya Keerti from 03rd to 07th July followed by a two-day camp ‘Taste of Meditation’ conducted by Ma Dev Dakshina and Swami Anand Amit. ‘Osho Meditation Camp for Youth’ was organised from 10th to 12th of July.

“Life should be lived with as much wholeness as possible.
That's the only way to live, to love, and to have a good laugh in the end.
And don't be worried about what is right and what is wrong.”
