OSHO BODHISATTVA MEDITATION GARDEN

A space for inner transformation, a gathering of friends.

Osho Bodhisattva Meditation Garden is a sacred space where seekers can stay in silence or practice in a group to learn how to transform their bio energy using many of the Osho meditation techniques. We invite all sincere seekers wishing to start an inner journey in the company of fellow meditators. Just like many individual trees planted together make a forest and fill the air with oxygen, many individual meditators coming together to grow on their spiritual path, meditating together in a group, change the whole energy of the city. This energy, in turn, enhances the spiritual growth of each individual.

In the East such a place of dense energy field is called a buddha-field. In a buddha-field meditation is not to be forced – it happens spontaneously. In a buddha-field silence is not an absence of outer noise; it is a dynamic inner dance.  Joy and celebration then come as a fragrance of the inner silence. Osho Bodhisattva Meditation Garden is an attempt to create such a buddha-field in the midst of a busy city.

Osho Bodhisattva Meditation Garden is not just a space for meditation but is also an organic, pesticide- and herbicide-free edible garden for conscious education of the public about edible landscaping with native and pollinator-friendly plants. We are 100% vegan and non-violent, and our garden is a certified Wildlife Habitat. 2 rescued bunnies help to naturally fertilize the Garden, rescued community cats protect it against ruthless pests.

We raise monarch & zebra longwing butterflies and support a multitude of other life forms. We promote the principles of biodynamics, permaculture and natural cycling of organic matter. We grow and share food with our fellow meditators and friends of the Garden, big and small. Non-human friends – birds, butterflies, bees, other pollinators, beneficial insects and mammals – all play their role and find food and shelter in Osho Bodhisattva Garden. We lead educational garden tour classes, please check the event page for details.

Osho Bodhisattva Garden belongs to Osho Bodhisattva Corporation , a  501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered in the state of Florida. We sell meditation items like meditation books, robes, posters, Buddha statues, etc. at cost price. All proceeds go towards maintaining the Meditation Garden and hosting future meditation events.

About

Who is a Bodhisattva?

Osho speaks: “Bodhisattva means a Buddha in essence, a Buddha in seed, a Buddha asleep, but with all the potential to be awake. In that sense everybody is a bodhisattva, but not everybody can be called a bodhisattva — only those who have started groping for the light, who have started longing for the dawn, in whose hearts the seed is no longer a seed but has become a sprout, has started growing.

You are bodhisattvas because of your longing to be conscious, to be alert, because of your quest for the truth. The truth is not far away, but there are very few fortunate ones in the world who long for it. It is not far away but it is arduous, it is hard to achieve. It is hard to achieve, not because of its nature, but because of our investment in lies.

We have invested for lives and lives in lies. Our investment is so much that the very idea of truth makes us frightened. We want to avoid it, we want to escape from the truth. Lies are beautiful escapes — convenient, comfortable dreams. But dreams are dreams. They can enchant you for the moment, they can enslave you for the moment, but only for the moment. And each dream is followed by tremendous frustration, and each desire is followed by deep failure.

But we go on rushing into new lies; if old lies are known, we immediately invent new lies. Remember that only lies can be invented; truth cannot be invented. Truth already is! Truth has to be discovered, not invented. Lies cannot be discovered, they have to be invented.

Mind feels very good with lies because the mind becomes the inventor, the doer. And as the mind becomes the doer, ego is created. With truth, you have nothing to do…and because you have nothing to do, mind ceases, and with the mind the ego disappears, evaporates. That’s the risk, the ultimate risk.

You have moved towards that risk. You have taken a few steps — staggering, stumbling, groping, haltingly, with many doubts, but still you have taken a few steps; hence I call you bodhisattvas”. Osho, the Dhammapada, Vol 1

Osho Bodhisattva Meditation Garden is open to seekers from all religions, all paths of yoga & meditation. It is a gathering of friends interested in meditation and inner peace. It’s a meditation garden dedicated to the practice of mindfulness using many of the Osho meditation techniques.
