The meditation camp at Mount Abu ended with the full moon night. In the afternoon, I talk to friends about going boating in the night. We come up with the idea to tell Osho about it. When we ask Him, He says, “We should reserve all the boats and after the night meditation everyone can go boating.”
People attending the meditation camp are just thrilled with the message about boating. All the boats are reserved and after the night meditation everyone rushes to the lake like little kids going for a picnic. When Osho arrives at the lake there are already about five hundred people waiting there in the garden. It looks very chaotic but surprisingly in a couple of minutes people fall in line on both sides making a path for Him. Osho never gives any discipline to His people but His mere presence creates the harmony. His people love and respect Him out of their understanding.
He walks towards
the lake with folded hands, namasteing everyone. A few friends join Him
in the same boat and the rest of us take other boats. It feels like a great
celebration on the lake. All the boats are filled with sannyasins dancing
and singing. I look at the full moon and imagine that moon god must be
desiring to come down and join in our celebration.
