Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) Influences on Nithyananda = Osho 2.0

Nithyananda Copies the Osho Channel
Speaking of Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh), Paramahamsa Nithyananda, do you love Osho as an influence? Your answer might be something ambiguous now that we mentioned your order-to-made gift of ‘enlightenment’. But, we know the answer is unequivocally YES. Would you, Sri Nithyananda, consider Osho, along with L. Ron Hubbard of Scientology fame, to be a custodian of Vedic Culture? You, Sri Nithyananda, seem like you just lost something. Can I help you find it?

Sri Nithyananda, do you own any Osho books? Sri Nithyananda, once again, you seem very quiet. We know that around 70 percent of your personal library consists of Osho books. In fact, you had your indentured laborers drive to the Osho Book Distribution Center in Marin County, California just to pick up books that you had to get now. (Yes, a busy man like you, Sri Nithyananda, shouldn't have to wait for mail orders.) If the need should ever arise, we are able to reproduce some of those demanding emails like the one that requested to get 70 Osho books in Portuguese.

Just for fun, Sri Nithyananda, do you ever copy any of Osho's jokes? Sri Nithyananda, why do you look so serious? Why your jokes seem to be awfully similar to the same jokes Osho compiled in his book ‘Take It Really Seriously”. And, your lecturers. Many people commented that some of them were exact duplicates of Osho. In fact, your Shiva Sutras almost seemed like a verbatim of Oshos's Vignan Bhairava Tantra. Same with your Bhagavad Gita lectures; Osho never sounded so young, fresh, and sexy. I guess ‘enlightened’ minds think a like.

And what about your logo of the paramahamsa bird in front of a tilted circle? Do you, Sri Nithyananda, remember talking about this in your book Glimpses of My Master, Nithyananda, first 'first' (original) edition December 2005 on pages 171 through 179? You, Sri Nithynanda, say, "Yes". We are glad that we agree. Yes, Sri Nithyananda, your book says it very clearly:

"Nithyananda as he terms it 'downloaded the vision of a Swan' soon after 'enlightenment'. That Swam (sic) [you meant to write Swan] is now the emblem of the mission center Dhyanapeetam.... The emblem that one sees in the Dhyanapeetam website as well as on this book and other publications as the logo, is the Swan that Nithyananda envisioned." (p. 172)

Wow, that was fascinating. And, then you spend, Sri Nithyananda, the next six pages tell us all stories about how fish see this reflection of the swan and build ashrams, construct big, big temples, teach mediation (breathing techniques for sure), etc. all just to contain the reflection of the swan's image. Why this shadows the story to your legacy. I get it now.

Sri Nithyananda, that was a lot of trouble just to get a logo. If you just needed a logo, all you needed to do was look at the back of an old Osho newsletter (then Osho was known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh).

In fact, Osho had a logo just like yours. Except Osho's logo had a larger goose on it, or was that still a swan? Here it is; we knew you would find it inspiring:



Although both logos are interesting, personally, I kind of like the Osho logo better. It seems a little more original and fresh.

Nithyananda, did Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) must have made a big impression on you? You will say “No”. Wrong again. You forgot about your Osho statue, you know, the one you claimed to chisel as your first act of 'enlightenment', and other evidence. In 2004, one follower of yours from the first batch of ashramites in Bidadi confessed that you used to wear an Osho mala (rosary) complete with a picture of Osho on the pendant. Maybe it reminded you of that Rajneesh sannyasin from Osho's Ashram that you used to hang out with in the graveyard.

Sri Nithyananda, did you ever use any of Osho's meditation techniques? You will say 'no'. Wrong again. Sri Nithyananda, do you remember your first program you taught called Ananda Spurana Program (ASP) or later renamed to the Life Bliss Program? Of course you do. Not only did it have two meditations that were exactly the same meditations that Osho had in his courses, the music that accompanied them were also exactly the same. This was confirmed by two former cabinet members of Osho who used to help Osho get dressed before he went on stage who incidentally took your Life Bliss Program course in 2005. In this way, Osho's Dynamic Meditation became Nithyananda's Dukkhaharana. Likewise, Osho's Nadabrahma Meditation became Nithyananda's Maha Mantra Meditation. (Incidentally, the Rishis named the original humming meditation as Nada Pranyam over 10,000 years ago.) Well, what do you think the odds of such an original program from a Living Master like Sri Nithyananda having the same stuff that Osho had? Amazing. It was like Déjà Vue all over again. Yes, Sri Nithyananda, you later slightly modified your meditations and re-recorded the music. I’m sure no one will really notice the similarities now.

Mr. Nithyananda, didn’t you almost hire Osho spiritual advisor in 2007, so that you could create a university? But, then again, you were able to obtain the Hindu University of America in Florida, so then his services were not really needed. But, it is the thought that counts.

And, didn’t you Nithyanada keep a big giant oversized coffee book about the building of Rajneeshpuram (Osho’s ashram in Oregon, USA) you, know, the one where Osho’s followers created the first act of bio-terrorism in the USA in order to 'swing' an election, and oh, yes, a really big parking lot for all the Rolls Royce's Osho collected? You will say ‘No’, but all of the ashramites in L.A. will remember that book, especially Nithyananda Dheera who you assigned to build a huge ashram like Rajneeshpuram. In fact, you assigned several books as ‘required’ reading from Osho. These included books like ‘Diamond Days’, etc. What a coincidence, there seemed to be more books assigned as required reading of Osho than there were books that you ‘wrote’. But, then again, you never wrote and maybe never read your books, so we agree that the Osho books would have been a better choice.

And Nithyananda, were you inspired to dress up like Osho on many occasions when you were on stage? Your answer will be ‘No’. But, lucky for us, there are many videos with you wearing some colorful customs. The best ones looked like a cross between ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band’. Sri Nithyananda, you are definitely one cool dude. No wonder all the ladies like you.

  5. No one can see the ocean fully as an object. But if you happen to be with osho atleast once you would see the real existence of ocean through his penetrating body. He is the living miracle on earth planet. As we lost buddha from India, we miss bhagwan also in the same way. Meditate on his form, you will attain existential bliss and enlightenment. God bless you all.

  6. I feel pity on u.I think u felt jealous abt paramahamsa nityananda.u lv osho then love him understand his teachings and go deep into it. Dont be on the periphery.why dont u feel happy that somebody is taking osho s understandings and teaching the people.even osho loves it.why cant u accept it.becoz oshos emphasis on' acceptance'.if u lv osho why cant u accept.means u neither follow osho nor nityananda.u want argument u r intersted in comparison.i lv both i accept nd follow both of them.both are unique. Osho and paramahamsa nityananda both are masters of this age.feel grateful them.

  8. I saw first hand at the Ashram in Bidadi how they cut and paste Osho's material and then simply replace "osho" with "nithyananda". I have had many private discussions with Nithyananda at that time where he made fun of the westerner's treating him like a movie star. It is impossible to show follower's the facts as they simply aren't interested.
