BENEFITING: VIHA MEDITATION CENTER
For about 30 years now it has been our joy to produce the Viha Connection. The magazine has indeed provided wonderful connections: It has helped us make friends with many beautiful people all over the world, and it has connected sannyasins with each other. We have heard again and again how important this connection is especially for those living far from any other Osho lovers. The magazine has always been an expression of our love for Osho, and it has never made any profit. We have subsidized it for decades. However, lately our subscriptions have dropped to about half of what they used to be. This comes as no surprise; it is happening to all printed newspapers and magazines. But our financial loss is now more than $2,000 per issue, about $14,000 a year. We can no longer afford this. Some of you have made regular donations for many years, and we are grateful for your financial support, but it is simply not enough. We can only continue to publish the magazine if we receive substantial contributions, be it money or in the form of resalable Osho books. Since we informed our readers of this situation, a few friends have already pledged a total of over $3,000. We hope to raise a total of $15,000, which will keep us going for a year. We will keep publishing the magazine as long as our funds allow.
