Anadi had the privilege to grow up in the same place where Osho experimented with life, death and meditation. Being Osho’s childhood friends, Anadi’s parents told him all sorts of anecdotes about Osho’s incredible childhood. In his adult life, Anadi is committed to share and pass on these immensely valuable stories and experiences by organising tours and taking small groups of people retracing the most important places in Osho’s life. In this interview, Anadi shares with an open heart his love for Osho and his own understanding and life experience as a meditator and seeker of truth.
Swami Anand Anadi was born in Osho's hometown, in the same street, where he grew up within Osho's vibration. In 1981 at the age of 18, he was initiated into sannyas. Soon after Osho left the body Anadi started working in the Osho commune International. Since 1999 Anadi is travelling across the world to facilitate and share Osho Meditations. In India, he organizes the Osho Golden Childhood Tour - travelling to places where Osho has spent his early life till the age of 40. Anadi knows the area intimately and introduces fellow travellers to rare places and friends who were part of Osho's early journey.
