Should You Reveal Your Sadhana Practice
The question answered in the discourse was - Is it ok to reveal your Sadhana Practice if someone asks you about it? The scriptures are very clear about it, that one must never disclose their sadhana unless it is with their guru. The impact goes down significantly if you do this. The moment you share it with someone, they will ask you about your experience. Even that is ok, the trouble comes when you exaggerate those experiences, and you begin telling yourself a story that you start to believe. You will then begin to defend those experiences and that involves a lot of lies. When you lie on this path, that significantly weakens your consciousness as a Sadhak. Let your success speak for itself, let people feel your energy, and deduce if you are doing some sadhana. Once you complete a mahapuruscharan, then you are welcome to share what you experienced. The moment you expose your plan, you will have to defend is consciously and subconsciously. Other people's egos and energies come into play. Any sadhana or anything you wish to do has to be guarded. When something is in the making it is not the same as it is made. When you are still in the "making" you need to detach yourself from the ego, which will nudge and propel you to speak about your sadhana and experiences. At that time if someone asks you, just say I am just following instructions, or that I am in the path of mantra yoga or meditation. Listen to the full discourse to get deeper insights into the topic.

A life of no meaning is a life that’s gone out of control. Drifting is hardly a voyage. And that is why, in my humble opinion, every spiritual being at some point of time in his/her life steps back and questions the meaning of it all.

Episode 122 - Osho And Past Life Regression
Today our guest is Ma Devagarbha (Avalon Haykus). Devagarbha took sannyas in 1980 and holds a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Antioch University. Her background includes training in both traditional and alternative forms of counselling and hypnosis, including certification as a Rajneesh Counsellor in 1983. Devagarbha is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified Professional Hypnotherapy Trainer and has taught state and nationally approved professional certification trainings in hypnotherapy for over twenty-five years. Devagarbha discovered past life regression as part of her professional development. During her first experience, Devagarbha resolved a long-term phobia and decided to make this technique part of her professional toolkit to help others. Devagarbha is writing a book about past life regression using hypnosis. As part of the research, Devagarbha looked into what Osho said about past lives and reincarnation.
