An Enlightenment Day Celebration in Bhagwan’s silent presence held in Pune 1. The following are quotes on the occasion of the celebration – and a song.
rejoice! sing! dance!
and dance so totally that your egos
melt and disappear
dance so totally
that the dancer is no more there
but only the dance remains
then you will find me wherever you are
wherever my sannyasins celebrate
my message is realized
because celebration is my message
my sannyasins celebrate everything
celebration is the only thing
we can offer god
this i call prayer, this i call being religious
celebrating one’s being, it is a gift from god
just to be is more than you can ask for
just to be is the greatest miracle
we are made of the stuff called celebration
i say unto you rejoice
again and again!
oh what wondrous life!
i rejoice in the waves of your love
i rejoice in the stars above
i rejoice in the rolling thunder
of your song
we are on the threshold
of something new that is going to
happen to humanity
we have to fill the whole earth with buddhafields!
so wherever you go
wherever you are,
never forget for a moment
that you are not far away from me
