Members of the Inner Circle

A list of the original IC members

Taken from a supplement to the Osho Times International, dated February 1 1990

On April 6 1989, Osho gave instructions for the setting up of a committee to be called "The Inner Circle." The aim of the committee, he said, was to reach unanimous decisions about the continued functioning and expansion of the commune and his work. "I am tired," he said, "and I want to retire."
Over the next few months Osho kept close watch on the workings of the committee members. Eventually he finalised the committee at 21 members, whom he said had been chosen to represent the commune departments and his work. He stressed that the inner workings of the committee were to remain a secret. He also said that the committee is not to be involved in spiritual considerations, but should look to the mundane work, the practical problems of the commune: "The Inner Circle" is not a club to discuss philosophy. It is a pragmatic and practical way to decide things."
Osho said that when any member dies a new member is to be chosen unanimously by the remaining members.

The 21 members are:

  1. Jayesh (chairman)
  2. Amrito (vice-chairman)
  3. Anando (secretary and medium)
