Meditation is the New Necessity. Osho NewStream looks at billionaire philanthropy as applied to secular meditation programs. Society will radically improve when we find new ways to make meditation as available as alcohol, heroin and painkillers. The greatest legacy any philanthropist could leave behind is to support meditation as a mainstream social medicine and human service reaching millions. The social benefits of meditation are far-reaching.
An insider look at billionaire giving and why meditation delivers a high return on investment. Help make a Meditation Nation! "Billionaires Back Mainstream Meditation" is a commentary by Prem Geet on the extremely high social value of meditation. At the present rate of self-destruction, in 100 years our world will be unbearable. This is why major philanthropic giving is required to support Osho meditation programs and projects worldwide. Funders need to understand that meditation is a kind of infrastructure and the backbone of a healthy future.
Philanthropists will soon understand that meditation practice is a social service and contributes to the “deep well-being” of individuals, and by extension, their communities. This effect ripples out even further to impact the world family with love, awareness and peace.
This month Osho NewStream features commentary by Prem Geet, a professional writer and philanthropy expert who has helped numerous non-profits raise millions of dollars. Over the last 8 years, she has also written many online articles to promote the meditations and discourses of Enlightened Master Osho to a larger audience.
Prem Geet says, “The potential for funding for meditation as a human service is great. We need to connect the philanthropists to supporting these amazing activities that help our society.”

"Osho NewStream, News from the NooSphere," is a call-to-action news and commentary service dedicated to the Enlightened Master Osho. Specifically, we focus on news that requires participation, such as signing a worldwide petition to protect Osho’s legacy, or donating money to support the emerging Buddhafield in the USA and beyond.

We feel that applying time, money, and action is absolutely vital to the growth of Osho’s work in America and beyond.

Stay tuned for more about Osho people, places and projects in the Noosphere. This free e-news service is run by a staff of volunteers. In addition to Osho News, we also report on Babaji News, Buddha News, Jesus News, Amma News, Baba News, Shiva News, Krishna News, Vishnu News and other Enlightened Master news and causes. What is the NooSphere? The "noosphere" is like a psychic belt or spiritual envelope of consciousness around the Earth, a term coined by the French mystic and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. His noosphere insight is a holistic precursor to the Gaia concept and the Internet. Our collective actions and thoughts impact and interact with the noosphere which is like a huge filtering system or perceptual neural network of the Earth that communicates to all beings simultaneously. If we can brighten the noosphere with more evolutionary sparks of creativity and awareness, the natural evolution of the noosphere is the realization of the buddhasphere. Osho says, “...'Noosphere' means the world of subtle vibes, thoughts, feelings that surround you… the Master carries a noosphere around himself… I call it the Buddhafield.” Osho also says, “Mind doesn't exist as an entity -- that is the first thing. Only thoughts exist.”
