कुछ लिखने को न कहें। जैसा यह बिन लिखा खाली कागज है, ऐसा ही मन चाहिए। इसलिए, रोज मन पर जम गई घूल झाड़ दें- प्रतिपल ही ऐसी सजगता रखें। प्रतिक्षण बीते-हुये के प्रति मर जायें। नित नया जीवन पाने का सूत्र यही है। और जो मन सदा नया, ताजा और शून्य है, वह सत्य को सहज ही पा लेता है, क्योंकि वही सत्य है।

रजनीश के प्रणाम


Don't ask me to write. The mind should be just like this unwritten empty paper. Therefore, every day keep on removing the dust gathered on the mind -- maintain this awareness each moment. Die to the past, each moment. This is the secret to have a new life always. And the mind which is always new, fresh and empty can achieve the truth easily; because that is the truth.
