We are delighted to welcome you to a 3-day residential meditation retreat with Swami Anand Arun. We have been inviting Swami Arun to conduct retreats in Florida every year since 2014, and every time he brings a fresh breeze of joy and bliss all the way from the Himalayas. Swamiji’s depth of understanding of Osho meditations and Osho’s message is truly remarkable, but it’s his presence and his touch that transformed many. He calls it a blessing from his master Osho, and it will be this blessing, this energy shower that we will merge with and meditate in.
Bodhisattva Swami Arun is the founder and coordinator of Osho Tapoban – an international Osho commune and a Himalayan forest retreat in Nepal. He divides his time between nepal and twenty other countries of Europe, North America, Russia and Asia, where he gives discourses and facilitates Osho meditation retreats regularly.
On March 29, 1969, when he was still a student of engineering, Swami Arun first met Osho. In the very first glimpse he realized his search for a master had come to an end. In 1974, he took initiation from Osho at Pune. After a few months of staying with his master, he was instructed to open an ashram in nepal and spread his vision. Today, he has initiated around a hundred thousand seekers from 90 different countries into Osho Neo-Sanyas. He actively mentors and guides six Osho communes and more than seventy-five meditation centers in Nepal, a commune in America and around a hundred and fifty Osho meditation centers in fifty different countries.
A meditation retreat with him is a wonderful growth opportunity for everyone interested in Osho meditations. He is the founder and coordinator of Osho Tapoban – an international Osho commune and a Himalayan forest retreat in Nepal.
