|Destination: Osho Commune-Pune Now Osho Meditation Resort
|Destination Type: Yoga & Spiritual Tourism
Situated about 120 kms south-east of Mumbai, India and set on a beautiful campus in the city of Pune, the Meditation Resort is one of the world's largest centers for personal growth and meditation.
The addition of a spa with a pool, Jacuzzi, gym, and tennis courts, and a vibrant nightlife, the Meditation Resort reflects the underlying spirit of Zorba the Buddha – a place for someone whose feet are firmly on the ground, like Zorba the Greek, and yet whose hands can touch the stars, like Gautam the Buddha. A place where the mind, body and soul can play harmoniously together.
If this is your first visit you probably would like to take a look around.
The daily meditation schedule comprises 12 active and passive meditations a day from 6am to 10.30pm and you can participate in a full OSHO Multiversity program of courses, individual sessions and morning classes.
If you would like to stay on campus, you can stay at the OSHO Guesthouse. Or, if you have more time available, you can check out the Living In Residential Program.
Once you arrive, the front desk will direct you to the Welcome Center just to the right of the main entrance. They will take care of your registration for participation in the Meditation Resort activities.

Shaniwar Wada ; Shaniwarwada is a historical fortification in the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India. Built in 1732, it was the seat of the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire until 1818, when the Peshwas lost control to the British East India Company after the Third Anglo-Maratha War. Following the rise of the Maratha Empire, the palace became the center of Indian politics in the 18th century. The fort itself was largely destroyed in 1828 by an unexplained fire, but the surviving structures are now maintained as a tourist site.
Aga Khan Palace : The Aga Khan Palace was built by Sultan Muhammed Shah Aga Khan III in Pune, India. The palace was an act of charity by the spiritual leader of the Nizari Ismaili Muslims, who wanted to help the poor in the neighbouring areas of Pune, who were drastically hit by famine. The Aga Khan Palace is a majestic building. The palace is closely linked to the Indian freedom movement as it served as a prison for Mahatma Gandhi, his wife Kasturba Gandhi, his secretary Mahadev Desai and Sarojini Naidu. It is also the place where Kasturba Gandhi and Mahadev Desai died. In 2003, Archaeological Survey of India declared the site as a monument of national importance
Sinhagad Fort : Sinhagad is a hill fortress located at around 35 km southwest of the city of Pune, India. Some of the information available at this fort suggests that the fort could have been built 2000 years ago. The caves and the carvings in the Kaundinyeshwar temple stand as proofs for the same. Previously known as Kondhana, the fort had been the site of many battles, most notably the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670. Perched on an isolated cliff of the Bhuleswar range in the Sahyadri Mountains, the fort is situated on a hill about 760 metres above ground and 1,312 metres above mean sea level.
Mulshi Dam : Mulshi is the name of a major dam on the Mula river in India. It is located in the Mulshi taluka administrative division of the Pune district of Maharashtra State. Water from the dam is used for irrigation as well as for producing electricity at the Bhira hydroelectric power plant, operated by Tata Power. The station operates six 25MW Pelton turbines established in 1927 and one 150MW Pumped Storage Unit. Water from this reservoir located in Krishna river basin is diverted to the Bhira power house for generating Hydro electricity. In 1920–21, during the construction of the dam and power station, Pandurang Mahadev Bapat led Mulshi Satyagrah, a movement to represent farmers whose land had been taken to build the project. He was dubbed Senapati in recognition of his leadership
Panshet Dame : Panshet Dam, also called Tanajisagar Dam, is a dam on the Ambi river about 50 km southwest of the city of Pune in western India. The dam was constructed in late 1950s for irrigation and, along with three other dams nearby, Varasgaon, Temghar and Khadakwasla, it supplies drinking water to Pune.
