Arrived to Osho trailing her boyfriend, Padma’s life was disrupted by the Master’s fragrance. Osho told Padma that creativity would be her vehicle to self-realisation and encouraged her into a deep process of expression and artistic creation. In this episode, Padma talks about how the Osho Zen Tarot artwork is inspired by the Master’s presence and explains the artistic creative process like being an empty cup ready to receive.
