Don’t Be Afraid Of The Unknown

The Urgency

Now, Nivedano, give the beat…



Nivedano …


Be silent.
Close your eyes.
Feel your body to be frozen,
and just go in… deeper and deeper.
At the deepest is your immortal self.
Don’t be afraid of the unknown,
rush towards the center like an arrow.
Just don’t stop on the periphery,
because only at the center,
where nothing moves,
you are a buddha.
To make it more clear, Nivedano


let go, forget the body,
forget the mind,
just remember that you are
pure consciousness, just an awareness.
And without going a single step anywhere
you have arrived home.



Osho signature

Come back,
but come back as buddhas
and sit down for a few moments…
remembering, rejoicing, making a contact…
that in your every activity
this consciousness
will always be like an undercurrent.
Once this experience of buddhahood
becomes a solid experience,
it expresses in all your activities –
in your words, in your silences,
in your days, in your nights.
It becomes your constant companion.
Ultimately you deserve the final disappearance
and only the buddha remains.
A pure awareness
is the most beautiful lotus
that has ever blossomed.

Okay, Maneesha?
Yes, Beloved Master.

Can we celebrate the ten thousand buddhas?
Yes, Beloved Master.
