Talk:Osho Timeline 1971
When speaking in the Shanmukhanand Hall in Bombay at a function organized under Dhyan-Mandir-Anudan-Yojana on the 18th of January 1971, Bhagwan talked about the many conflicts between the religions of the world. But he also pointed out, that there was no difference of opinion between them regarding meditation, and that the founders of religion had all experienced meditation and thus reached the ultimate state of blissfulness. He declared his wish to set up meditation centres in all the big cities and unfolded his vision on their capability with the help of science to meet human needs, and he continued:
- “These meditation centers will explore into all the aspects of life – what type of dress should a meditator wear, what should be the color of the walls and what atmosphere should be around? I want there should be clusters of bamboos, mango orchard, singing birds and artificial spring so that there should be peace like in a forest. There is a complete philosophy in my mind in this regard. If those, who approve of it, try and contribute, the work can be done. This can’t be done right now as every important work requires time to be done. If you sow a seed today, it will take time to sprout, develop into a tree and flower. If only one thing is there in the mind of a man that he has done something for the welfare of mankind, it is enough to give him delight and calmness.” (Bhed 2006, p. 331) (from the Osho Source Book)
I have mentioned this talk in the discussion page for Anant Ki Pukar as a possible candidate. Recently we got a not-quite-complete Dates & Places minidoc for Anant and it was not in there, but there are still three missing dates. (We can still hope :-))
The source Neeten is citing is likely TREMO, which is Gyan Bhed's translation of his own Hindi megaseries, so Osho's words will also have been translated by him, not necessarily with the greatest fluency in "Osho English", eg, "complete philosophy" may be better rendered as "complete vision", etc.
Meanwhile, what brought me here was to make a note about an edit i just did. I updated dates for Geeta Darshan Bhag 4 in Nov-Dec, to reflect a new, likely better understanding of GD's dates, more precise, etc, but still left a "?" with those dates. Is that the best way to leave a situation that is not 100% confident? Links point to GD's talk page for the full explanation. I think if there is reasonable doubt, that doubt merits a "?". -- doofus-9 18:31, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Conflict dates on Feb 4, 1971: book Geeta-Darshan Adhyaya 4 confirms all dates for Adhyaya 4. Ch.2 of the book The Inward Revolution gives date Feb 4 withour the time of day, but in Bombay; in that time Adhyaya 4 was given in Pune. CD-ROM agrees with TIR and adds "pm" to the data. Most likely either place of The Inward Revolution ~ 02 is wrong or its date.--DhyanAntar 04:25, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
