Non Profit motive
The objective of this fee is not for the purpose of revenue generation. Mainly to provide for the maintenance and salaries for the staff employed, we collect this fee. In addition, we have to take care of unexpected damages due to floods and miscellaneous expenses. Moreover, the amount we charge is a bare minimum taking into account the individual’s minimum expense for a day. Actually, those who are not able to afford this fee can stay free with food, based on the availability of rooms.

OCTOBER 13 to 15 OSHO CAMP
There were around 13 participants for this program. The camp concluded on Sunday at the Meditation Resort. We explored many meditations, silent sittings, swimming in the river and quietude. Summing up, in the future, we are looking forward to seeing more people in these gatherings where silence happens.
