    very spiritual place...

    by venteeocho Updated Feb 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Osho, or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, as he was known earlier in his life, teaches meditation not as a practice but as a way of life. He is a mystic who brings the timeless wisdom of the East to bear upon the urgent questions facing men and women today. He speaks of the search for harmony, wholeness and love that lies at the core of all religious and spiritual traditions, illuminating the essence of Christianity, Hassidism, Buddhism, Sufism, Tantra, Tao, Yoga, and Zen.

    His talks, spoken over 30 years, have been recorded on audio and video tapes and published in hundreds of books in every major language of the world. Osho’s vision is of a new man. After his enlightenment in 1953, the evolution of that new man became his whole work.

    Why not visit a beuty parlour and get your hair died with Indian 'Mehndi' if you happens to be a foreign tourist?Ofcourse ladies should not miss putting up Mehndi drawing on their hands and having colourfull bangles to Identify yourself with south asian touch.
    Just check up for 'Rangoli Art','Yoga',folk dances in various parts of India.

    The Osho Ashram,a spiritualistic centre which is world renowned.Tons of foreigners come especially to India to visit this place.A must see!Travellers can also join the program for 3days,5 days or more(do find out at the centre!)Apparel worn at the centre consists of flowing crimson/maroon robes and sandals or no shoes at all...a worthwhile experience.
    Lots of little stores selling Osho wares & silver jewellery,and a variety of restaurants serving all kinds of food,make this area an interesting place to visit.Visit the German Bakery at Koregaon Park!
