Osho: Life History & Main Message Teachings [VIDEO]
Osho (11 December 1931 – 19 January 1990)
Original Name: Rajneesh Chandra Mohan Jain
Known as Acharya Rajneesh from the 1960s onwards, as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh during the 1970s and 1980s and as Osho from 1989.
A professor of philosophy, he travelled throughout India in the 1960s as a public speaker.
In 1970, Osho settled for a while in Bombay. He began initiating disciples (known as neo-sannyasins) and took on the role of a spiritual teacher.
Moving to Poona in 1974, he established an ashram that attracted increasing numbers of Westerners.
In 1981, Osho relocated to the United States and his followers established an intentional community, later known as Rajneeshpuram, in the state of Oregon.
The Oregon commune collapsed in 1985. Osho was arrested shortly afterwards and charged with immigration violations.
Twenty-one countries denied him entry, causing Osho to travel the world before returning to Poona, where he died in 1990.
His ashes were placed in his newly built bedroom in Lao Tzu House at the Poona ashram. The epitaph reads, “OSHO. Never Born, Never Died. Only Visited this Planet Earth between 11 Dec 1931 – 19 Jan 1990.”
His syncretic teachings emphasise the importance of meditation, awareness, love, celebration, courage, creativity and humour.
