As a young student, Swami Anand Arun used to have a recurring vision of a red roofed big house surrounded by a dense forest. It was a bird’s eye view of a red roof in circular shape attached with a rectangle. He couldn’t comprehend what it was or why he was having those strange visions. Some pointed out to him that it could be a vision from his previous life or some sign from his past. Swami Arun could never come to a definitive conclusion of what it was but the vision never stopped. After many years when Osho Tapoban came into existence, one day Swamijee went to a hill on the other side of the creek at Tapoban from where one could see the whole commune. Swamijee was blown away from what he saw and finally understood where those recurring visions came from. He saw the exact same roof in that particular shape. It was the meditation hall, Rajneesh Dhyan Mandir at Osho Tapoban.
Osho Tapoban is a collective dream of many evolved souls and enlightened masters, the seed of which was sown when Osho visited Nepal. He wanted a commune in the Himalayas and instructed Swamijee to build a commune and gave him specific details of how it should be. It took 4 years before this dream could finally take shape and in 1990 Osho Tapoban was established. The journey of manifesting this dream called Osho Tapoban has never ended since then.
