Meditation is an art of relaxed awareness. On the path of meditation, tremendous will power and effort is needed. It is a path of awareness to break the old habits and patterns. Meditation is a way to find out your original face, that which is under all the masks of personalities that you use in the market place, peeling off the layers one by one to rediscover your true nature and the divinity within you. It is an inward journey to dive deeper into dark spaces within and finding the inner luminosity.

"I do not belong to the category of the learned. My whole life has been based on a fundamental truth which can only be called unlearning. Whatever the society has forced me to learn, through the schools and the colleges and the universities, my work has been how to unlearn it; how to clean myself from all this junk, rubbish and all kinds of crap. I am not a learned man. Perhaps I might be the most unlearned man in the world. And I would hate to be respected by the present humanity - it does not have that intelligence, nor has it that heart, nor has it that being" - Osho

Meet The Instructors
Agyat’s life was transformed in 2013 when he discovered the teachings of Osho. After leading a busy chaotic life and a stressful career, Agyat moved into Osho’s commune in Pune where he practiced the daily art of meditation for two years and practiced meditation daily. His personal transformation during this time was so profound that he chose to dedicate his life to the teachings and practices of Osho, becoming a disciple and sharing the path with others. Agyat transitioned into the Himalayas to another Osho commune where he met some of the best Osho therapists.
