Making the vision of Osho available to the world

A seedling planted by Osho as a meditation centre over two decades ago has come to fruition as Osho World Foundation today.

In early 1978, Osho (then known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) gave his blessings to one of his committed disciples Swami Om Prakash Saraswati and sent him to start Rajyoga Rajneesh Meditation Centre in Delhi.

In a few months, Rajyoga Meditation Centre was inaugurated in New Delhi to start daily meditations, books, tape library, organized regular exhibitions and meditation camps in the capital and in North India.

When Osho left for the United States in 1981, Rajyoga published a newsletter, Rajneesh Buddhafield, to keep his disciples and lovers informed of the new developments in Rajneeshpuram. A couple of years later, Osho sent a message to Rajyoga to start a meditation campus near Delhi and efforts started in this direction.

The centre also started to publish books of Osho. A major publishing landmark for Rajyoga was the publication of Osho’s discourses on Nanak in Punjabi - Ek Omkar Satnam - in 1987. Since then, this bestseller has had over ten editions and Rajyoga has been instrumental in translating and publishing other books by Osho in Punjabi that have also proved to be popular.

To impart a new impetus and perspective for Osho’s vision in the new century and bring meditation to the marketplace as he said, Osho World Foundation was established in 1999. The Foundation presents Osho’s vision at three levels - for the market with information and lifestyle products, for the mind with a program of meditative events covering the fine arts and for the soul with meditation camps. Osho World galleria in New Delhi’s prestigious Ansal Plaza was opened on 1 April 2000 and a programme of cultural activities started with major functions every month making Osho’s presence felt in the capital and in India with news events.
