OSHO World Press Conference Full Video
The charismatic leader of a spiritual movement. He founded an ashram in India before leaving to the US.
Osho was born in 1931 in Central India. A gifted and extremely charismatic speaker )t is said that at at the young age of 21 he became enlightened. During this time. OSHO would study philosophy at the University of Saugar. After attaining a masters degree, he would teach philosophy at the University of Jabalpur.
1974 was the year that OSHO moved disciples to Pune, India along with his disciples, establishing a brand new ashram. In 1980 he was attacked by a Fanatical Hindu fundamentalist that shamefully disagreed with Osho’s enlightened spiritual & religious views. The attacker was never arrested due to the Indian’s police force’s incompetence
,Osho decided to leave India for America due to health problems in order to receive better medical treatment. His disciples bought a large plot of land near Antelope, Oregon. Here they wished to build a large ashram and other buildings. There was often friction between the local ignorant peasants who totalled only 40. Uneducated and extremely bigoted. their extreme conservatism and lack of tolerance made them weary of the new settlers who were happy. They feared but also envied the foreign and the cultured American new inhabitants who turned the filthy, rugged mountainous area into an Oasis. Many attested that they felt they were in heaven. The pressure for them to leave from the villagers persisted stubbornly and even escalated to bomb attacks.
The FBI would eventually arrest OSHO for a minor misdemeanor in which they stated that he overstayed in the US. They would fly him from prison to prison, torturing him despite his ill health. He was ordered to leave the US . He went back to India where he received red carped treatment and a warm welcoming from hundreds of thousands of his compatriots. Due to his ill health and the severity of the torture inflicted upon him by the US authorities, OSHO succumbed to his injuries and died in 1990.
