Nivedano…

Nivedano…

(Drumbeat)

Be silent, close your eyes.
Feel your body to be frozen.
Gather all your life-energy like an arrow,
going deeper and deeper into your being,
to the very roots.
Here is the source not only of your life,
but of all life.
Here are the roots connecting you
with the universal source of life.
In this space, you are the original man.
In this space, you are the buddha.
This is your home.
You can go out, but never forget the home.
This is your nourishment, your consciousness,
your very life energy.
Keep it pure and flowing, and it will change
your character, your lifestyle, your actions.
It will bring grace and compassion and love,
just as flowers come to the rosebush.
Anything that comes out of this space is yours.
It will make you feel independent, individual, on your own.
There is no question of doubt or faith – you know it.

Nivedano…

Painting by Osho

Relax, just to make it clear that
the body is lying, the head is lying,
and you are simply watching.
Just be a watcher, a witness.
This is the greatest miracle in the world –
to be a witness…

You can remain a witness twenty-four hours,
doing all kinds of things.
You can also remain watchful, alert, aware.
The day you are for twenty-four hours aware,
without any effort, spontaneously, naturally,
you have come home.
You have become a buddha,
which was your destiny.
Right now you are only a seed, a bodhisattva.
When the seed becomes a flower,
the bodhisattva transforms itself into a buddha.
It is all your potentiality,
you don’t have to seek it anywhere else.
I call it the miracle
because we are searching everywhere
for just two or three gold coins,
and an eternal treasure is available to us… the whole gold mine!
Every one of you is a splendor, a majesty,
a magic, a miracle.
If you can just remember your buddhahood,
the journey is complete.

Nivedano…

(Drumbeat)

Come back, all the buddhas.
Slowly, silently, gracefully,
remembering the experience
and the space you have been in.
Sit down for a few moments,
just being a buddha,
a pure sky, a silent lake, an empty mirror.

Okay, Maneesha?
Yes, Beloved Master.

Can we celebrate the gathering of the buddhas?
Yes, Beloved Master!

Osho, Turning In, Ch 6
