Oshodhara is a unique spiritual stream, that emerges from Osho and is taken forward by three of his enlightened disciples, now known as Sadguru Trivir. The trinity of Masters, comprising of Osho Siddhartha, Osho Shailendra and Osho Priya started this commune on 2 April 1998. Currently they have their headquarters at Murthal (Haryana - India) and centers spread all over the world.
"Core teaching of all sages, Upanishdic rishis, Lord Krishna, Mahavir, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, Guru Gorakhnath, Kabir, Nanak and Osho, is Omkar. Oshodhara has taken upon itself the responsibility to present this point in proper perspective."
From Lord Shiva, who appeared as the first master on the earth, to Osho, the greatest mystic of our times, many paths- Vedanta, Sankhya, Yoga, Tantra, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity, Sufism, Zen, Hasid, Tao, Baul, Sikhism, etc., have been discovered to reach the peak of human consciousness, but there has been hardly any effort to synthesize these paths scientifically in a sequential manner before Osho. Oshodhara, walking down the neo-path of Osho, pledges to take forward these scientific techniques and reach out masses.
Osho Says, "We need a new kind of human being who has both wings: the wings of knowledge, science, technology, and the wings of meditation, enlightenment, love, and freedom. When both wings are functioning in a deep synchronicity, in a deep togetherness, in accord and harmony, then only man is complete, total." Oshodhara is committed to create such a man.
