September 6th marks twenty years since the death of Papaji’s body. In this month’s issue of Oasis Magazine we celebrate the unfathomable, still here, vast presence that is Papaji, and turn our inquiry toward that which never dies. What is death? What is life? What is alive and unchanging before the form is born and after it is gone? The body will die sometime. That is a guarantee of birth. But the opportunity is to die before the body dies, and in that to recognize the eternal truth of who you are.


Oasis Magazine is dedicated to the expression and the exploration of what it is to live a “poetic life,” a life lived immediately and directly in which the adventure of living is not mediated by stories we tell ourselves, and the outpouring of love is natural. When we share our experience of this awakened life — in poetry, in art, in music, or in simply reporting on our lives — it transmits the possibility of that same grace opening within the heart of another.
