Orange-Connection 1981

Orange Connection
the large Sannyas Festival in November 1981 in ICC Berlin


Just in the middle of the time after Osho left his Ashram in Poona and before the new Ranch in Oregon was established, almost 3000 Sannyasin met from 23th to the 29th November 1981 in the International Congress Centre ICC in Berlin for a huge festival.

Almost everybody who had a name in the Sannyas movement at the time came here from all around the world to offer groups and workshops.

The meetings filmed during the entire festivals amount to many hours.

Some meetings are presented here.

Sufi-Dance with Aneetha and Anubhava

Annetha and Anubhava have introduced Sufi-Dance in Poona 1 and have produced during that a few of the best and most well know titles of Sannyas music.

Songs like "The time of the goose" or "Only you" are still known by almost every Sannyasin and are amongst the best Sannyas-hits ever.
