DROP THE IDEA OF BECOMING SOMEONE, BECAUSE YOU ARE ALREADY A MASTERPIECE. YOU CANNOT BE IMPROVE. YOU HAVE ONLY COME TO IT, KNOW IT, TO REALIZE IT. OSHO
Osho was born in Kuchwada, Madya Prades, India on December 11, 1931. From his earliest childhood, he was a rebellious and independent spirit, insisting on experiencing the truth for himself rather than acquiring the knowledge and beliefs given by others. He attained enlightenment at the age of 21. Osho is also known as Acharya Rajneesh.During Osho’s visit in Nepal he directed Swami Anand Arun, an intimate disciple of Osho to build a commune. Swami Arun established Osho Tapoban . In sanskrit Taboban means place of Sadhana (meditation) established in the foothills of Nagarjuna forest, where Buddhist saint Nagarjuna had mediated and attained ultimate enlightenment. Tapoban is an international commune and forest retreat center where one can get inner peace and explore you in a meditative environment.
Osho Tapoban lies in the western side of Kathmandu. It is about twelve kilometers from Tribhuwan International Airport, about 10 kilometers from Kathmandu city center and six kilometers from Balaju NewBus Park. It is one of my best spiritual place. I have been visiting these places for the past years. To escape from hustle and bustle of Kathmandu Osho Tapoban is the best place to visit. This place has been breathing space for renowned celebrities also. I was so happy to see popular actress Manisha Koirala at Tapoban few years back. This proves everyone is looking for inner peace.
