New Delhi, May 3 (UNI) As a part of the celebrations to mark Buddha Jayanti, the Capital’s Osho World Foundation has initiated daily hours of Meditation, the first of which was set in motion by well known police offier Kiran Bedi here last evening.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Bedi who has initiated several meditation programmes for law enforcers and jail inmates alike said she was looking forward to the start of the Buddha week.
Setting her eyes on the prized collection of books on display at the Osho World Galleria, the fierce lady officer uttered in a lighter vein,”I wish I could steal them all.”
Later during the function, she was presented with some of the literature and audio cassettes on Osho.
Apart from the week-long meditation, discourses on the sayings of Lord Buddha have also been included in the programme. The designated hours for meditation have been scheduled from 1730 to 1900 hrs and will take place daily till May seven. UNI
