Osho speaks about the meaning of Guru Purnima Day

And this Guru Purnima Day is the day of all the Buddhas,
all those who have become aware.

In their remembrance, become aware.
The grove is here in front of you.
You can see that luminous light. It is here!
You can hear that celestial sound; that music is happening.
And you can be soaked into my fragrance.

Osho empty chair with full moon

It depends on you – how much you are ready to take,
how much you are willing to take,
how much you are going to be with me, how deeply.
You can come here just to hear my words;
then you will miss the real message.

You can come here full of your nonsense,
your argumentativeness;
then you will not be able to hear what I am trying to convey.

You can come here as Mohammedans, Hindus, Jains,
and you will miss me – but only you will be responsible,
nobody else.

Try to understand your responsibility towards yourself.
Enough you have been stumbling in darkness!
When light becomes available, don’t miss the opportunity.
Take the jump….

Osho, Zen: The Path of Paradox, Vol 3, Ch 1
