“Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.”

Osho Leela Meditation Center
The Osho Leela Meditation Center offers daily meditations, group processes, personal growth workshops, dance and celebrations. We are located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado and easily accessible from Boulder, Denver, Longmont and the front range communities.
We are run by a group of volunteers who are committed to their own journeys home to themselves and are eternally grateful for Osho and his teachings. We offer daily meditations and special events designed by Osho to help us on our paths to more awareness.
“I want my people to know themselves, not to be according to someone else. And the way is in.”
Born in Kuchwada, Madhya Pradesh, India on December 11, 1931, Osho says of his parents, “I had chosen this couple for their love, their intimacy, their almost one-ness.” Growing in an atmosphere of tremendous love, freedom and respect, Osho was an intuitive and adventurous child with the knack of penetrating to the very heart of a situation. Exploring life fearlessly and intensely, he insisted on experiencing life for himself rather than acquiring beliefs or knowledge given by others. “My childhood was certainly golden – not a symbol, absolutely golden; not poetically but literally, factually… Those years were unforgettable.”
When he was seven years old, his maternal grandfather died with his head in Osho’s lap as they traveled in the back of a bullock cart on the long journey to reach the nearest doctor. This had a profound effect on his inner life, provoking in him a determination to discover that which is deathless. “I learned much in that moment of his silence…,” Osho said later. “I started on a new search, a new pilgrimage.” This, and other stories in Glimpses of a Golden Childhood, give rich insight into Osho’s early years, and the innocent spirit of the flame of rebellion and playfulness he brought to every endeavor in his life.
