Buddha Purnima Celebration - Saturday ~ May 18, 2019 @ Osho Nirvana | Valley Center | California | United States

Join us for a full day of meditation and celebration on the occasion of Buddha Purnima.

Purnima means full moon in Sanskrit.  Osho always told us that it is easier to meditate and to be enlightened on a full moon.  Beloved Buddha was born on the full moon, was enlightened on the full moon, and died on the full moon.  This is a very auspicious sacred day. 

“I love the Gautam Buddha as I have loved nobody else. I have been speaking on him throughout my whole life. Even speaking on others I have been speaking on him. Take note of it, it is a confession. I cannot speak on Jesus without bringing Buddha in; I cannot speak on Mohammed without bringing Buddha in. Whether I mention him directly or not that’s another matter. It is really impossible for me to speak without bringing Buddha in. He is my very blood, my bones, my very marrow. He is my silence, also my song “- OSHO

Buddha Purnima is a festival that marks Gautama Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and death. It falls on the day of the full moon in May.

We will enjoy several Osho Meditations and a special Laughing Meditation with Ma Sarito Sun.  Sarito is the Laughologist for the Deepak Chopra Center.  She is a pioneer and trailblazer who brought the International Laughter Movement to San Diego in 2003.

Group meditations create a vibrant energy field.  When we come together to meditate and celebrate, there is higher energy created, we feel the presence, and we open to receive the amazing blessings and grace.

No prior meditation experience is needed.  We will introduce the meditations and you can enjoy the whole day at your own pace.   All that is needed is an open heart ready to explore, learn and relax into your own being.

Come to Osho Nirvana and give yourself a good time.
