Mumbai, India -- Dear All, on 08 March, the UN International Women’s Day, let us celebrate all women who have intrigued me, enchanted me, inspired me, enthralled me, motivated me, charmed me, entranced me, captivated me, enamoured me and loved me, especially the woman who brought me into this world on this day!

Here’s Osho’s insight on women to add sparkle to this day!

Let’s raise a toast to all women and especially those who fascinate!

Celebrate International Women’s Day… What Osho says about women…

New Delhi, India --  "A Woman Is To Be Loved, Not Understood: Love, trust, beauty, sincerity, truthfulness, authenticity – these are all feminine qualities, and they are far greater than any qualities that man has.

"My emphasis is to give respect to women – and equality is not against men.

It is a world which belongs to you both and you both have to be together to make it as beautiful and as divine as possible.

"If all over the world the woman is allowed freedom to grow to her potential, there will be many, many women enlightened; many, many women mystics, poets, painters.

"And they will enhance not only the woman’s part of the world – because the world is one – they will enhance the whole world.

"They will give man also new dimensions because their ways of seeing things are different.

"Man looks at things in one way; the woman looks from a different perspective.

"Life will become richer.

"It is for the betterment of both man and woman that the woman should be given every freedom and equal opportunity for her individuality.

"Then there will be a sense of humor. And the woman can laugh more gracefully than man, she has every potential for it – but it is repressed, condemned, criticized.

"She has lived a life of such misery that you cannot hope that she will show some sense of humor.

"But the day is not far away…then the whole earth will be full of laughter. Instead of talks about war, instead of politicians giving speeches all around the world, instead of the sermons of stupid priests who know nothing, it will be far better that every man and every woman is able to see the hilarious side of life and to enjoy it."

-- Osho, The New Dawn, Talk #31


New Delhi, India --  I am in favor of women’s liberation because I know that unless women are liberated, men will never be liberated. Their liberation is together, because they are two sides of the same coin.

Naturally many more women have come, because for centuries they were denied, they were insulted, they were never accepted as equal to men.

Naturally, more and more women will be coming – and only those men will be here who are ready to accept women as their equal.

No male chauvinists can remain around me.

It is a family of equal people, with equal dignity.

"If women had been respected in the past, humanity would not have been in such a mess as it is today – because women are half of humanity.

"Half of humanity has remained undignified, uneducated, deprived of all freedom, all movement.

"We have hampered, handicapped ourselves.

"We have destroyed half of ourselves, and if we are in misery then who is to be blamed?

"I am all in favor of women’s liberation – but not the way the women’s liberation movement is going.

"It is taking a reactionary attitude, it is not a real revolution. It is trying to imitate man.

"And remember, imitation never makes you equal; imitation at the most will make you a carbon copy – but the original is original."
