It is a new family growing on the earth

In a darshan, Osho reminds a sannyasin, who is leaving for Germany, to help sannyasins in Munich for they are part of a very special family.

It is a new family growing on the earth; it needs every kind of help possible. Devote your energies to it. It is one of the greatest creative possibilities that is opening. Contribute all that you can contribute to this.
Because right now you may not be aware but later on you will feel tremendously happy that you had also contributed towards something which is going to become so meaningful. It is very difficult to see the future. It is very easy to be wise when things have passed.

When I was a student, on one Buddha celebration day the vice-chancellor said I always think that if I had been in the days of Buddha, I would have sat at his feet... I would have walked in his shadow.

I had to stand up. I said, You are talking nonsense. I told him, I know perfectly well that you were there - he became very much afraid - and you never came to Buddha and you never sat at his feet. Buddha passed the places you were living in and you never followed him. Not only that - I know perfectly well that you were against him.

He started perspiring. He said, What are you saying ? How do you know?

I said, I know because I know you! It has nothing to do with Buddha. I have been watching you for six years: I have never seen you going to any temple, to any mosque. I have never seen you going to any saint, I have never seen you reading the Gita or the Dhammapada. It is very easy to be wise when things have passed.

I asked him, Have you been to J. Krishnamurti?

He said, No.

Have you been to Shri Ramana Maharshi?

He said, No.

Then I said, Take your words back, because Buddhas are still alive....

Something of great import is happening. Dont miss it! Participate in this growing movement. And you will feel happy later on that you contributed something to it, that your hands were there in it.
