As told you before,
I get always such a strong confirmation of this infinite intelligent existence
if I have done something what has to be done.
And I had to write
life as a miracle , because there was
such a strong celebrating energy all around me! Writing this whole article was
such a rejoicing of Osho! After publishing I was VERY curious how
existence would react. And the reaction I got is the greatest gift I could get.
At the moment
when I started
publishing about Osho, there was a strong copyright (see the sad
story below), but I felt I had to do it. Immediately after my first publications
the message came that the copyright case has been lost in America, but there was
still a treat of appeal and problems for other countries. But now just after
publishing life as a miracle I got
this e-mail. (see below).
Yes, yes, yes life
is a miracle. I feel so immensely happy that all the Osho lovers can go
spreading Osho message to the world and I have so much of Osho to spread!! Isn't
wonderful how the law of
God Action works, it transcends everything else.
Osho asked me in the Sinai to
make his name, his photographs,
his words, his meditations as widely available as possible. And now this is
- - - - - - So
Rejoice friends - - - - - -
Here comes to
original e-mail and it gives also a good picture that there is always a battle
between the light and darkness (ignorance) on this planet of duality. But
from the beginning of time light always wins. After the big bang on 1.000.000
particles of anti-matter 1.000.001 particles of matter were formed. Therefore
this existence could come into creation. And we are here to celebrate this
miracle of life!
Letter from Neelam: Celebrate! Friends, Celebrate!

indeed a moment of rejoicing: Osho’s name and his
meditations are now free from the fetters of trademarks.
After a ten year long battle between OIF (Osho
International Foundation) Zurich led by Jayesh and OFI (
Osho Friends International) led by Swami Atul Anand,
Osho Friends International has won. Congratulations and
cheers to OFI for their unwavering devotion to
fulfilling Osho’s wish.
Osho devised many meditation
techniques in late sixties and early seventies. Never in his
lifetime did he express his wish to trademark the
meditations, as he always felt that the meditations are a
gift of the Awakened Ones and are meant to raise the
consciousness of humanity. He openly proclaimed this in one
of his discourses in Gautama the Buddha auditorium: “Things
can be copyrighted, thoughts cannot be copyrighted, and
certainly meditation cannot be copyrighted. They are not
things of the marketplace. Nobody can monopolize anything.
But perhaps the West cannot understand the difference
between an objective commodity and an inner experience”.
When asked how to protect the
purity of his meditations, he gave a very simple solution: “Make
my meditations as widely available as possible so that millions
of people come to know them directly. That’s the only positive
way; otherwise you will be wasting time and money in fighting
This was a very
clear guideline and this was his wish. But a few years later, as
time passed by, Jayesh did the opposite, going against the
guideline and wishes of the Master. With the help of Amrito and
Anando, he took a totally negative direction of dominating Osho
sannyasins and lovers, and whoever did not toe their line was
either ridiculed, harassed or banned from the commune. Talking
about toes—I remember in one of the meetings between Amrito and
Sw. Chaitanya Keerti, Amrito said: “Now we have got our
copyrights and trademarks registered. We have the power to step
on some people’s toes, and we intend to do that. “Feeling sad,
Keerti reminded him: “These toes are of Osho’s sannyasins and
lovers who are doing his work.”
And in their new
found power and arrogance they started harassing and
intimidating Osho sannyasins (who were involved with Osho’s work
for years) with legal threats. In India, they began this with
sending legal notice to Delhi-based Osho World Foundation
prohibiting them to use Osho’s name (
www.oshoworld.com) on the web. Moreover very
inhumanly they got thousands of copies of Osho’s books in France
shredded because the sannyasin publishers were unable to pay
royalties to OIF. Besides this, there are several examples where
devoted sannysin publishers and meditation center leaders were
served legal notices forcibly discouraging them from
contributing to Osho’s work and vision, thus creating anger and
resentment among them.
Thanks to USPTO (
United States Patents and Trademarks Office) which in a strongly
worded decision said: “Based upon the testimony and evidence
of record we find that primary significance of Osho is as a
religious or meditative movement and not as a source identifier
for goods or services....As a result defendant cannot foreclose
others from utilizing the
verdict came on 13th January 2009. But Jayesh and his
team did not accept it. He filed a notice of appeal in the
federal court on March 12, 2009 challenging the decision.
Apparently he realized later on that there was nothing more to
be said or added, and he had no hope of winning, he withdrew the
appeal and OFI agreed to it. In mid July the federal court
released the order dismissing the appeal. Now the trademarks of
Osho and his meditations in the US finally stand as cancelled.
The sannyasins and
lovers of Osho would find the decision as an end of a bitter
episode. I do wish to reinforce the fact that now Jayesh should
take constructive steps to get all the Osho trademarks cancelled
in other countries wherever he has applied. I am sure thousands
of Osho lovers would welcome this momentous decision and be
delighted to seeing Osho and his meditations now freely
available all over the world. It is equally important to
recognize that this would save enormous amount of energy, time
and money that he has been wasting all along. The same can be
used in doing such things as organizing more and more meditation
events around the world, publishing more books, specially the
unpublished ones which are not available in the market; making
Osho’s name, his photographs, his words, his meditations as
widely available as possible. That will be the positive way, the
Osho way, of protecting the purity of Osho and his vision.

amazing Master in existence since Buddha
such a strong wave of creativity going over this planet. Perhaps it
has something to do with the longest solar eclipse of this century
yesterday, which always has been a sign of great things to happen.
morning there were so many creative ideas wanted to be expressed.
Existence is enjoying so much this creative play at this moment and
it is also creative in the confirmation signs I got all the time.
And this one is another great example of it. After publishing this
article I looked at my statcounter and it found this search in Yahoo
with the question: (Who is) the most amazing Master in
existence since Buddha
means of the Osho essentials of this website Yahoo declared Osho
to be the One. And I hadn’t even written that. Isn’t amazing!
did the Yahoo meditation in Poona II, long before Yahoo existed,
must have foreseen this (smile!). So let us celebrate even more!
