Became a Sannyasi

Without darkness, light loses its significance. Comfort and luxury in life often resists you from moving towards a truthful psychology. Wisdom loses its importance in good times. All talk of paradise starts when something has been lost.

Psychologists say that the psychological foundation of a man is always rooted deep inside his childhood. My childhood days were full of innocence and playfulness. Being the smallest family member, I was an over-loved and over-cared child in my family. I've always loved to read and write something beautiful. My interests have been in all the creative things whether its music, writing, dancing, meditation or spirituality.

Times of confusion are the luckiest times when you really stop wandering and start searching for the right path. After graduating from the high school, my times of confusion allowed me to search for something worth doing. This was the time, I started reading a lot of philosophical articles on books, newspapers and the internet websites. I also started watching lots of movies on my DVD player. One more great hobby was listening to music. This hobby was great in the sense that I was able to listen to almost every Indian music song released between the years 1990 and 2008.

After getting bored from Indian music, I started listening to classical music on Internet radio stations. And, after reading so many philosophies, I started listening to Brahmakumaris on Sanskar TV Channel. Later on, I visited a Brahmakumaris center and completed a 1 Week Course on Spirituality. After completing this course, I started doing the Raja Yoga in Brahmakumaris Center. Women in the Brahmakumaris Center were blessed with purity and an entirely different kind of attitude. I've never seen those type of women in the society. They were some special people.

I remember my childhood days when Hanuman Chalisa was included in my daily evening routine. But, reading and listening to Brahmakumaris in my youth age was like a revolution. First time, I was consciously interested in digging the inner realities of this world.

I was not done yet. I wanted something more, something different to explore. It was some late evening time somewhere in October 2009 when my father was having a long general conversation with one of his friend who was an Osho Sannyasin. At that time, all I knew about Osho was that he was a religious guru. I thought I should try something to read from Osho. I asked my father's friend to lend me some Osho literature. He gave me an Osho Magazine titled "I Celebrate Myself." After reading that Magazine, I realised that I have been reading all types of nonsense throughout my life. Later on, I purchased some books by Osho titled "Bliss," "Krishna: The Man and His Philosophy," "I am The Gate" and "The Rebel."

I attended my first full day Meditation Camp on December 06, 2009. First time, I discovered myself. My experiences with meditation has been life changing. I call it life changing because my consciousness started rising to new heights. Innocence is purity but, it is a curse. Innocence in this disordered so called society is a curse because in the world of rascals, an innocent person can be nothing more than an Idiot.

I realized my innocence and the need for more and more consciousness. Luckily, I belong to a reputed doctor family and my moral values have always been on the top of my life character. But, it was time for me to understand life beyond morality and beyond philosophies.

I've been to many temples and I've bowed down to many Gods. But, when I bowed down to Osho, it was from my heart. I became a Sannyasi on October 02, 2011. My Sannyas name is Swami Dhyan Samarpan. That was just a beginning.
