Sannyas on the Internet
This page only shows the largest Sannyas websites that act as entry points into the maze of Sannyas online. This is not a place for your personal self-promotional site, musings and meanderings. Those sites can be linked from your personal wiki pages. See here how you can arrange that.
Sites listed on this page can be of several types but all will have a central raison d'être of information about Osho and his people. All may have an angle, and all the angles can be celebrated as contributing to the diversity of Osho's sangha and legacy. Most of the big sites in the first group are collective enterprises, the few exceptions being important and unique contributions to the ocean of Osho/sannyas info.
Suggestions are welcome! Please list them on the discussion page.

Discussion & Sharing Groups
(Note that all these groups are on facebook. Once upon a time there were other providers, and others may again appear, but for now it's all facebook. Note also that we only list groups here. There are hundreds of pages dedicated to Osho or Sannyas on facebook, some of which have thousands of readers. Note that the number of group members are from a snapshot in time and thus not up to date.)
