||The mandaps which have covered the paths and kept them dry during the monsoon are all removed…and now the sky pours in and everything feels, literally, so light....
The whole atmosphere is cloudless, sunny and clear – with a crisp autumnal wisp in the air. Maybe time for a jacket in the evening?
The meditation resort bookshop, aesthetically designed in black and white, is the place to find beautifully designed Osho books, audio CDs, and video DVDs in Hindi and English and the monthly Osho Times in four languages. There is a computer station where you can download any of the thousands of Osho Talks from www.osho.com. And of course, there is all the music required for the Osho Active Meditations, plus the soothing healing music composed by Osho meditators. How can one man fill a complete bookstore? You wonder.
If the prices of these hard bound books seem to be unbelievably low, it is because, as Osho has requested, they are sold at cost price. And not only that, you can use the meditation resort shipping facility to have them sent to any corner of the world.
On the wall, hardly noticed, is the only public statement Osho makes about the meaning of the name, Osho. Yes, it comes from William James’ word “oceanic,” which describes the experience. “But what about the experiencer,” he continues, “For that we use the word ‘Osho.’”
So, with this “experiencer” emerging with every present moment, it is no wonder “Osho” runs as an undercurrent of vibrant silence in all the activities on campus. It permeates even the lush green exuberance created by the monsoon rains.
