Ma Neelam met Osho for the first time in 1969 during Osho’s visit to Ludhiana after which her inner journey and love affair with Osho and his work blossomed. In 1972, Osho himself initiated her in sannyas after which she regularly visited the Pune Ashram until 1981. When Osho left for USA, She also stayed four years from 1982 to 1985 in Rajneeshpuram, Oregon, USA in His commune.
She came with Osho back to India in Nov 1985 and was then appointed by Him as his personal secretary for India and when Osho came back to His commune in Pune, Ma Neelam continued to work as His secretary, taking care of His work in India. Osho appointed her as a member of Inner Circle and when He left his body in 1990, She continued staying in the commune in Pune until 1999, doing the work given to her by Osho.From 1996-1999, each year she went to eight different countries of Europe to lead meditation events until she left the commune in 1999. Since then she has been extensively touring across the length and breadth of India conducting meditation camps and lovingly sharing her insights gained from being with Osho.
As asked by Osho himself on many occasions,she has been intensely involved in creating an Oasis for fellow travellers in the Himalayas . Osho Nisarga, Dharamsala, is the result of that effort and the longing to create and share a space where seekers may go deeper within with commitment for self growth with a spirit of joy and celebration.
In an answer to a question from Ma Yoga Neelam in 1976, Osho said: "I have known her long enough, not only in this life but in other lives also. Her path is certain, that it is of love. Through love she is going to achieve. Through love she is going to be. Her direction is absolutely clear. Love is her meditation."
