OSHO WORLD MOMENTS
OSHO ENLIGHTENMENT DAY CELEBRATION & LAUNCH OF “THE POINT OF VANISHING”
Osho Enlightenment day was celebrated with meditations and music at Oshodham and Osho World galleria, New Delhi.
On March 15, singer Rashmi Agarwal dedicated an evening of devotional songs to the enlightened mystic to mark the inauguration of Osho Enlightenment week at the galleria.
A 5-day meditation-celebration camp from March 17 to 21, was conducted at Oshodham, facilitated by Swami Satya Vedant and Swami Ravindra Bharti.
On March 21, Swami Deva Rashid’s (Rashid Maxwell) book “The Point of Vanishing” was launched during the celebration at Oshodham. This book is an adventure story, spiritual but not religious. It tells of a journey to self-realisation; a journey that we all must make at some time in the cycle of our lives. Victor is escaping from a world of crumbling institutions, power and paranoia. He faces, one by one, the heartaches and the inner challenges we human beings are called upon to face. He tangles with a tantric lover, faces death in a meeting with his long dead parents and flounders in the mirages of mind. We travel with him through the sometimes tragic, sometimes comic landscapes of the modern world. In this expansive work the author interweaves related stories from his own inexplicable life.
This book was later launched in the marketplace at osho World galleria on March 22, with a special book reading session by the author and Film maker & Poetess Dr. Lavlin Thadani. Later the author singed copies for the book lovers present during the launch.

LAUGHTER UNLIMITED ON MULLA NASRUDDIN DAY CELEBRATION
April Fools Day was celebrated as Mulla Nasruddin Day, named after the laughing Sufi mystic popularized by Osho in his discourses, at the Osho World Galleria, on 1st April 2012. This day also marks the establishment of Osho World and this year its 12 anniversay was also celebrated with laughter.
Well-known humour poet Mahendra Ajnabi led a jam packed Osho World Galleria into a laughter safari for more than an hour. Everyone laughed at the humours and satire by the well-known poet who also launched the April issue of the Osho World News English magazine.
A favourite of Osho in his discourses, the Mulla Nasruddin jokes have a deep spiritual message.
"Born in Iran, Nasrudin is a Sufi mystic, a little crazy, but always tremendously wise. "To be Mulla Nasrudin means two things: Be foolish in your wisdom and be wise in your foolishness. It is a very great contradiction. Be wise in your foolishness and be foolish in your wisdom. You should be aware of the fact that Mulla Nasrudin is a Sufi device. It is to make you clear that life is wise in its foolishness. And when you try to be wise you become a fool. The greatest wise people are like fools. And the greatest foolish people are those who pretend that they are wise. If you have to choose, choose the fool and you will become wise. Don't choose to pretend wisdom, otherwise you will become a fool." - OSHO
