Today is the last day
in Pahalgaon. With Osho, sometime it feels the time has
stopped and at other times it feels it is running very fast. While I am busy packing, I hear the voice of this Muslim watchman, who is standing at the door. I ask him to come after an hour to help us carry our luggage to the car. As a token of his services, I give him twenty rupees, which he receives with thanks and leaves.
We are sitting on the
verandah with Osho, ready to leave. The watchman comes and
salutes Osho saying, "Aleikum Salaam". Osho smiles at him. He asks Osho
if he can come to Bombay to serve Him. I can
see tears in his eyes. He is deeply
touched by Osho's love. Osho blesses him by placing His hand on his
head, and asks me if I have given him some
money. I tell Osho about giving him
twenty rupees. Osho says, "Give him twenty more". Twenty rupees is quite
an amount in these days. People hardly give
five rupees as baksheesh to their servants.
Osho has the heart of an emperor who is always ready to share to
the maximum. I give the watchman twenty rupees
more. While receiving it he holds my
hand and starts crying. It touches me deeply and tears overflow from
my eyes also. Thank you beloved master, for
giving me this opportunity to open
my heart to a stranger.
