Your names don’t represent you

Hot Chillies

Osho speaks on the names he gives to his sannyasins.


A sannyasin came to me, a very good man, but he was feeling very, very happy because I had given him a beautiful name.

I give beautiful names to everybody.

He had made an ego trip out of it.

He said, “Osho, you are wonderful. You have given me such a beautiful name –
it exactly represents me.”

Your names don’t represent you.

These are my hopes, not realities.

These are my dreams, not realities.

Osho, Yoga: The Alpha and the Omega Vol. 9, Ch 5
