Sufi Dancing in Poona is the title of a typed document. These 13 pages with song texts were compiled by Ma Prem Aneeta, who was leading the Sufi dancing groups in Poona from December 1976 to 1981 which was held every day at 10 am in Buddhahall. She gave a copy to Para, who annotated the songs with chords. Para has kindly made the document available for the Osho Music Archive. She writes on March 25, 2013:

"I asked Aneeta for the music after Sufi Dance, sometime between 1977 and 1981. We made an appointment in the garden and she gave me a bundle of loose sheets, apparently copies. For some songs I asked her to sing the melody, so I could jot it down in letters, and later I added the melodies I knew myself."

There are in fact four parts:

  • Numbers 1 - 49 are the songs for Sufi dancing, with instructions for movements and dance.
  • Numbers 51 - 80 are designated as Songs With No Structured Dance, used in e.g. Music Group.
  • Followed by a list of Wazifas: names of Allah, used for 'walk concentrations'.
  • And lastly a document Purification of the elements / Ryazat (identification with breath), showing breathing techniques & Sufi chants.
