Gangaben Patel

Gangaben Patel, was a freedom fighter and a social worker from Bombay (Mumbai). She, along with her entire family, was very badly shaken up at a tragic misfortune that occurred in 1944: Her eldest son drowned to death even as his mother witnessed the tragedy from the shore. After a few months, Mr. Chaganlal Yogi, a close disciple of Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, suggested that she should go to Sri Ramanasramam. When Gangaben saw Bhagavan for the first time, she was so impressed that she came back to take the whole family – her husband, daughter and the newly-widowed daughter-in-law – to Ramanasramam. Gangaben later translated books related Bhagavan’s life and teachings into Gujarati. Her daughter, Dhiruben, a popular Gujarati novelist, has also translated Bhagavan’s works into Gujarati.

Guru Dayal

Guru Dayal, an unassuming, simple village boy, was inspired deeply by Swami Sivananda’s narration of Yoga Vasishta in story form. Boundless compassion of Mahesh Yogi and Rajneeshji deepened his quest of the unknown.

In 1976, Guru Dayal’s series of articles on the scientific analysis of non-existence of man and universe were printed monthly in Divine Life Society’s journal.

Swami Chinmayananda, Raman Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj’s teachings fascinated him. On his journey, he connected with many spiritual masters such as Acharya Rajneesh, Swami Amar Jyoti, Swami Muktananda, Dadaji, Swami Dayanandji and various yogis, thinkers, seekers and many less known but divine luminaries living ‘ordinary’ lives, absorbing wisdom of Advaita, Vedanta, Tantra, Experiential Buddhism, New Thought Movement and also Bhakti.

Ramesh Balsekar’s very close association inspired him to write what he has understood. His first book was personally edited by Sri Sri Ramesh Balsekarji – Echoes from Eternity.

His books Essence of Yoga Vasishta: Secrets of Advaita Vedanta, Reality Behind Visible Cosmos and Is life Mere Dream or Reality? as well as various teachings of spiritual saints were rhymed in poetry and published as books in Hindi and English.

On the pleasant evening of 4th October 1969, a 27 year old photographer met Osho for the first time and silently handed him a note. It said... "Please look into my eyes and see if they can be set aflame... if they have the potential to see the light. If yes, then I have all the energy and courage to move on those paths which are unknown." On reading it, Osho looked at him, smiled, and said... "Ab aa gaye ho to wapis nahin laut paoge." (Now that you have come, there is no turning back) Since then, the young photographer never looked back. When Osho started initiating disciples into Neo-Sannyas in 1970, this photographer was fortunate to be amongst the first six disciples to be initiated into sannyas by Him. He was given the new name – Swami Chaitanya Bharti. Since then, Swami Chaitanya Bharti -- now lovingly addressed as Gurudev has conducted over a 100 meditation camps in India and abroad. Now in his sixties, Gurudev lives in Mysore and continues to conduct meditation camps with undiminished energy, enthusiasm and commitment. As he says... "This is my way of repaying the Master for all the blessings he has showered, all the wisdom he has shared, all the love he has poured on me... a debt which is basically impossible to repay." Gurudev is also the founder of Oorja Music, a spiritual music company dedicated to creating music based on Osho's vision of music, dance and meditation. He is the author of 3 books : "Osho aur Inner Circle" in Hindi ; "Out of His Ashes" in English... and just released Gurudev's third book titled…and nothing has ever happened
