Osho (Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh) Short Biography

Born on 11 December 1931 in Kuchwada, Bhopal State, British India, Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh, more popularly known as Osho, was a spiritual leader, mystic, and the founder of the Rajneesh movement.

He earned his Bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1955 from D.N. Jain College and earned his Master’s from the University of Sagar in 1957. After some time Osho found work as a professor for the University of Jabalpur.

At the age of 21, Osho had a spiritual awakening which led him to view sex as a gateway to “superconsciousness.” In 1966, he resigned from his post as a professor and became a teacher of meditation and a guru.

In 1970, Osho initiated his 1st group of disciples or neo-sannyasins. Four years later Osho established an ashram at Pune where he spoke from 1974 – 1981 and taught those who attended dynamic meditation.

Osho moved to the United States in 1981 to establish Rajneeshpuram a city he had envisioned. The project was later abandoned, Osho was deported from America and returned to Pune.

Osho became known for his progressive approach towards sexuality in contrast to other Indian teachers at that time.

Even after his death Osho’s followers still spread his beliefs from the Osho Meditation Centers around the world.
