Raisen: A large number of followers of Osho (Acharya Rajnish), spiritual guru, thronged at his birth place - Kuchwada in Raisen district, about 140-km from Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal - to celebrate his birth anniversary on December 11 as 'Anand Utsav'.
About 200 followers of Osho from Japan, China, US, Sri Lanka, Australia, Canada and other countries, in addition to
India, gathered in Raisen.
"The followers from India and abroad are participating in three day meditation camp. They remembered Osho,
celebrating his birthday by cheering, dancing, holding candles and paying floral tribute to their spiritual leader," said Swami Sahaj, who is camping here.
Another follower Swami Chaitanya Kirti said Osho has become more relevant in the present circumstances.
"Osho has given the message of love, peace and joy. In today's busy life, one needs to engage Osho's meditation
techniques," said Swami Chaitanya, who is convener of this camp. Osho was born here on December 11, 1931.
