I received the following ancient Indian philosophy via Murari Saha, who is a friend. I was struck by how similar these ancient Indian principles of spirituality are to the principles of Open Space Technology.
|Ancient Indian principles
||Open Space Technology principles
|Every Person you encounter is the right one.||Whoever comes is the right people.|
|Whatever has happened, is the only thing that could [have] happened.||Whatever happens is the only thing that could have, be prepared to be surprised!|
|Each moment in which something begins is the right moment.||Whenever it starts is the right time.|
|What is Over is Over.||When it’s over, it’s over.|
|Nothing is permanent.||Wherever it is, is the right place.|
