Osho Tapoban is an international commune and Forest retreat center. Osho Tapoban was established by dedicated team of Osho disciple led by Sw. Anand Arun
. Osho had a desire to live in the Himalayas during last days of His life. But due to certain unavoidable circumstances this could not happen.
During His visit to Nepal He had directed Swami Arun to build a commune which would be just outside the city and not too far away and not too close either, easily accessible to the seekers and could accommodate 100 people for camps and a hall that could accommodate 200+ people for meditation.
Swami Arun and friends were desperately searching for such a place in Kathmandu. They viewed many places outside valley, but were still unsatisfied. Then finally they came across the hills of Nagarjuna forest, where Buddhist saint Nagarjuna had meditated and attained ultimate enlightenment. This was the place where Osho Tapoban came to be in existence. With the undying efforts of Sw. Arun and Osho lovers in Nepal, Osho Tapoban laid its foundation and hence a commune flourished under the guidance of Osho.
Osho Tapoban is a trust, registered under the rules of the Government of Nepal on 1990. Since then Osho Tapoban has been developing day by day with its varieties of activities. Now Osho Tapoban has common rooms, dormitories, deluxe rooms that can easily accommodate 100 people for Meditation Camps, a beautiful Meditation Hall to accommodate 200 people for meditation and 500 for discourses.
We have our own Sujata kitchen which serves hygienic vegetarian food for the people staying and visiting Tapoban. A beautiful sculpture garden has also been set up. The grand place to be at Osho Tapoban is The OSHO SAMADHI, were the sacred remains of Oshos body have been kept. Besides the scenic beauty all the year round one can feel the energy and the vibe of Osho every where at Osho Tapoban.
Tapoban is being popular among Osho Lovers and the visitors from Nepal and other countries too. Osho Tapoban is the place to be, the place where one can get inner peace, explore yourself in a meditative environment and a place that will remain in your heart for ever and you wont afford to miss this place.
You are welcome to Osho Tapoban any time of year.
