An Ageless Campus


Fashion Show in Brunch at Osho International Meditation Resort, Pune




Tai Chi class in Buddha Grove OIMR

Visitors come here from all over the world and they observe that there is an agelessness in the people around the campus. This question is not new, it has always been there. When Osho was asked this question he replied: "The explanation is very simple. I have never felt my age. I still feel like a child. As I close my eyes I don't see any difference in my innocence, in my mischievousness. I am the only rascal saint in the whole world.
I sometimes wonder whether I am aging or not. When I look into the mirror, into my eyes, I see the same eyes I have always seen from my very childhood. I close my eyes, I look inside, and I am the same -- just ageless.
It is true, it is an ageless campus. Here the old are just as innocent as the children, or even more so -- because your inner being is ageless. Once you come in touch with it, it is timeless, it never grows old or young or anything. It is just the same from eternity to eternity. Once you start coming closer and closer to your eternity, a certain agelessness starts radiating from your eyes, from your faces.
And the person who observed this must have a very clear vision.
I can see it happening: you are becoming every day younger. Sometimes I wonder, if everybody becomes too young, it will be very difficult to explain to them the sutras! "

Fashion show photograph is pleasing.
Visiting your blog is visiting Resort -it is that near, just a click away - and visiting Resort is becoming ageless.
Caution! Back at home, beware of society's definition of age.
