These two CDs, played on a mix of Western, Indian and African instruments, were inspired by these words by Osho:
"Tao means only the path, no goal. There is no goal, but only the path.
And unless you learn to enjoy the journey itself, you will become more and more serious.
If you want to remain in tune with life, then remain always a celebration."
They were recorded in Munich, Germany, soon after Osho left the body, and carry the flavor of the many musical events that Chinmaya and the other musicians involved had been part of around Osho in Pune.
