These daily fillers include mini program properties like - Instant Yoga (that carries simple yoga tips for daily use at office, while driving or at home. Customized tips are also available for different age groups-children, youth, middle and aged groups). There is a daily feed of humour with Osho Jokes and Osho statements in his inimitable style.

The channel has also short-listed some most popular mantras and inspirational songs. The mantras have been redone with more ambience, resonance and body in treatment of the songs that offers a fresh appeal to the established or stagnated audio perception.
