Czech Republic, a volcation camp.
Czech republic was not on the list of the countries where the meditation camps were supposed to be conducted this year. However, while on his way to Norway, Swami Arun had to take a short volcano-vacation in the beautiful city of Prague due to the eruption in Iceland. Coincidentally, a few friend affiliated to Tapoban were already organizing a 21 days dynamic meditation program in Prague and invited Swamijee to speak on Osho and His Sannyas movement. On 16th April, all the twelve friends who attended the satsang program were inspired and decided to take sannyas. The volcation surprisingly turned out to be a meditation camp in disguise.
During 22-25 April, a meditation camp was organized in the serene environment of Meenwenven, Holland. With a beautiful gathering of 47 friends, the camp was focused on opening one self to the new dimension of love for the master. Everybody liked Swami Arun's simple and open way to take participants into meditation with gratitude for the Master. The camp's energy heightened with celebration when 9 friends were initiated into Osho's Neo-sannyas. On 20th April, afternoon gathering was also organized at Osho Aakash Meditation Centre at Soest where friends from Mevlana commune and Wajid center and other sannyasins gathered.
