Yes. It is indeed amazing. The older I get, the older I get. These first
appeared as “4(5) Principles of Indian  Spirituality”. Obviously moved over
to Bangladesh, which is not much of a jump. But the original Indian one was
prettier. I have attached it, but it may not get through. But you can
Google if you care. Fun.

Subject: [OSList] Ancient Indian principles vs. Open Space Technology


A few days ago, a friend from Bangladesh told me about the following ancient
Indian principles of spirituality.

I was struck by how similar these principles are to the principles of Open
Space Technology (in parentheses).

1. Every Person you encounter is the right one.  (Whoever comes is the right
2. Whatever has happened, is the only thing that could have happened.
(Whatever happens is the only thing that could have, be prepared to be
3. Each moment in which something begins is the right moment.  (Whenever it
starts is the right time.)
4. What is Over is Over.  (When it’s over, it’s over.)
5. Nothing is permanent.
