Krishna: The Man and His Philosophy

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Osho's first "official" sannyasins, according to info supplied by Ma Dharm Jyoti, as posted on the website of Sw Satrakshita:
Front L to R: Ma Yoga Laxmi, Ma Dharm Jyoti, Ma Yoga Prem, two unknown kids, Ma Yoga Bhagwati, Ma Yoga Samadhi
Behind L to R: four unknown, Sw Anand Murti, Ma Krishan Karuna, Sw Chaitanya Bharti, Ma Anand Madhu, Sw Yoga Chinmaya, Sw Govind Siddharth


The Indian mystic Krishna lived many centuries ago, yet in him Osho sees a man far ahead of his time, whose time, even now, is still to come. Where most orthodox religions are anti life, Krishna's revolutionary insight is that a really religious life is one that is enjoyed and embraced fully. This series of discourses is devoted entirely to questions from seekers, and in his responses Osho gives glimpses of the vast joy to be found when life is embraced fully.

Hindi : Krishna: Meri Drishti Mein (कृष्ण : मेरी दृष्टि में)

Later published as part of Osho Books on CD-ROM.
"Discourses from Bombay, July 20, 1970 and Kullu-Manali, September 26 - October 5, 1970."
Manali talks are those given at a Meditation Camp to the first group Osho "officially" initiated into sannyas, see image at right.
Chapter 22 is unique in that it is not part of Krishna: Meri Drishti Mein (कृष्ण : मेरी दृष्टि में), but part of Krishna: Guru Bhi, Sakha Bhi (कृष्ण : गुरु भी, सखा भी).
The introduction to this chapter:
A SPECIAL DISCOURSE, SEPTEMBER 28, 1970, MANALI, INDIA
September 28, 1970 was a memorable day. At Manali in the Himalayas, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh initiated His first group of sannyasins. This event was followed by this special evening discourse, on the significance of Neo-Sannyas.
