Growing up in a family of sannyasins, Paritosh’s whole life rotates around Osho. As a young man, Paritosh shared Osho’s books and meditations in India amidst much controversies and opposition. Later Paritosh moved to Atlanta and started a centre there. Today the centre is vibrant and offers festivals and daily Osho meditations online attended by hundreds of friends from all over the world. Paritosh also guides meditation events at his firm, sharing Osho’s essence in the corporate world.
Today our guest is Swami Dhyan Paritosh. Paritosh works as a Principal Engineer in a large US telecom company. Paritosh took Sannyas in 1982 when he was 10 years old and since then he has been sharing Osho’s vision. In 1998 Paritosh moved to Atlanta and since 2006 he and his beloved Anuradha run a wonderful and active Osho Meditation centre.
