A spiritual retreat with a bistro, tennis courts and a swimming pool? Naturally!
The Osho vision of the whole man is of one who is at home in both the material and the spiritual worlds. The most revolutionary aspect of this proposal is "Zorba the Buddha."
"My whole effort is to bring Zorba and Buddha closer and closer – so close that both can exist in one human being without any contradiction, as complementaries, helping each other, not fighting with each other."
"My concept of the new man is that he will be Zorba the Greek and he will also be Gautama the Buddha: Zorba the Buddha. He will be sensuous and spiritual, physical, utterly physical, in the body, in the senses, enjoying the body and all that the body makes possible, and still a great consciousness, a great witnessing will be there."
"And remember, if I have to choose between the two, I will choose Zorba, not Buddha because the Zorba can always become the Buddha, but the Buddha becomes confined to his holiness. He cannot go to the disco and become the Zorba. And to me, freedom is the highest value; there is nothing greater, more precious, than freedom."
The New Basho, Club Meditation, in addition to the swimming pool, now offers a beautiful jacuzzi and gym, with large indoor saunas in the men and women’s changing areas. The new tennis courts and table tennis facilities are being completed now.
The charge is 200 INR a day, 70 INR per day for workers. A second visit on the same day is 50 INR.
And of course, there is always simply lying by the pool, watching the shadows play in the leaves of the trees above. In other words, how you use the space is up to you.
