Osho Ashram is located at 17 Koregoan Park, a green and elite suburb of Pune . This place gained recognition, because of the presence of this ashram. It is now known as the Osho communal centre. Bhagwan Rajneesh is the founder of the ashram. Thousands of visitors are attracted to this ashram. The Ashram offers a variety of expensive courses on meditation.
It attracts a number of devotees each year even though Osho
expired in 1990. A teacher of Philosophy, he reached enlightenment at the
age of 21. Thereafter he travelled extensively giving talks and meeting
people. His unique system of dynamic meditation appealed to many since it
was in tune with modern life. In the early 70s, his ashram at Pune
attracted many visitors from the West.
He has written and spoken extensively on all aspects of spirituality and his books continue to be published to this day. "Do not be bothered too much about facts there are none, all are fictions, godliness has no history and godliness has no biography, godliness only 'is', there is no 'was' and there is no 'will be'. That's why in the East, we have never been bothered by history, we have not written history at all. Instead of history, we have written myths." Rajneesh's mantra was awareness and moment-to-moment realisation.
Facilities that are available in the Ashram are swimming, sauna, tennis, massages, beauty parlour, basketball courts and Bistros. Alongside the Ashram was at one time a dirty canal, it has now been converted into a rock garden known as Osho park. It is spread over 5 hectares.
