Hans Raj Hans, the renowned Panjabi singer of India with a repertoire from classical to light vocal, qawwali, ghazal to folk, pop or filmy music revealed that he keeps on getting energy and inspiration from Osho, the enlightened master.
Hans Raj Hans who has just been appointed Punjab’s first ‘Raj Gayak’ or State Musician released the November 2001 Nanak Issue of Osho World Magazine in Jallandhar. At this function, he said Osho is an energy phenomenon and although he did not have the good fortune of meeting Osho in person, he continually meets Osho in spirit and is blessed by Osho’s divine energy.
After hearing Osho for the first time, many new avenues of his life started unfolding for him; and many mysteries of life have gradually been revealed to him. Only after reading and listening to Osho did he come to realize the real meaning of Guru Nanak’s message; what Sant Kabir wanted to convey and to discover Lord Krishna in a new dimension, said Hans. He constantly listens to Osho’s discourses on tape – even on his world tours.
He was delighted to have the honour of releasing Osho World magazine in Hindi and he expressed it by presenting a Sufi composition on this occasion.
Gradually, Hans acquired distinction and depth, he is the true disciple of Ustad Puran Shah Koti, and possesses the quality of traditional Punjabi Sufiana music. Recently, he was paid a special tribute by the former U.S. President Bill Clinton for participating in his charity fund raising in New York for the victims of the Gujarat earthquake.
During his recent visit to New Delhi last month, Hans visited the Osho World Galleria in Ansal Plaza and expressed his joy at this venue for presenting the vision of Osho.
