The Messiah, Vol 1

CHAPTER 1

A dawn unto his own day
8 January 1987 pm in Chuang Tzu Auditorium

BELOVED OSHO,
ALMUSTAFA, THE CHOSEN AND THE BELOVED, WHO WAS A DAWN UNTO HIS OWN DAY,
HAD WAITED TWELVE YEARS IN THE CITY OF ORPHALESE FOR HIS SHIP THAT WAS TO
RETURN AND BEAR HIM BACK TO THE ISLE OF HIS BIRTH.
AND IN THE TWELFTH YEAR, ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF IELOOL, THE MONTH OF REAPING,
HE CLIMBED THE HILL WITHOUT THE CITY WALLS AND LOOKED SEAWARD; AND HE
BEHELD HIS SHIP COMING WITH THE MIST.
THEN THE GATES OF HIS HEART WERE FLUNG OPEN, AND HIS JOY FLEW FAR OVER THE
SEA. AND HE CLOSED HIS EYES AND PRAYED IN THE SILENCES OF HIS SOUL.
BUT AS HE DESCENDED THE HILL, A SADNESS CAME UPON HIM AND HE THOUGHT IN HIS
HEART:
HOW SHALL I GO IN PEACE AND WITHOUT SORROW? NAY, NOT WITHOUT A WOUND IN THE
SPIRIT SHALL I LEAVE THIS CITY.
LONG WERE THE DAYS OF PAIN I HAVE SPENT WITHIN ITS WALLS, AND LONG WERE THE
NIGHTS OF ALONENESS; AND WHO CAN DEPART FROM HIS PAIN AND HIS ALONENESS
WITHOUT REGRET?
TOO MANY FRAGMENTS OF THE SPIRIT HAVE I SCATTERED IN THESE STREETS, AND TOO
MANY ARE THE CHILDREN OF MY LONGING THAT WALK NAKED AMONG THESE HILLS, AND
I CANNOT WITHDRAW FROM THEM WITHOUT A BURDEN AND AN ACHE.
IT IS NOT A GARMENT I CAST OFF THIS DAY, BUT A SKIN THAT I TEAR WITH MY OWN HANDS.
NOR IS IT A THOUGHT I LEAVE BEHIND ME, BUT A HEART MADE SWEET WITH HUNGER
AND WITH THIRST.

Kahlil Gibran... the very name brings so much ecstasy and joy that it is impossible to think of another
name comparable to him. Just hearing the name, bells start ringing in the heart which do not belong
to this world. Kahlil Gibran is pure music, a mystery such that only poetry can sometimes grasp it,
but only sometimes.

You have chosen a man who is the most beloved of this beautiful earth. Centuries have passed;
there have been great men but Kahlil Gibran is a category in himself. I cannot conceive that even in
the future, there is a possibility of another man of such deep insight into the human heart, into the
unknown that surrounds us.

He has done something impossible. He has been able to bring at least a few fragments of the
unknown into human language. He has raised human language and human consciousness as no
other man has ever done. Through Kahlil Gibran, it seems all the mystics, all the poets, all creative
souls have joined hands and poured themselves.

Although he has been immensely successful in reaching people, still he feels it is not the whole
truth, but just a glimpse. But to see the glimpse of truth is a beginning of a pilgrimage that leads you
to the ultimate, to the absolute, to the universal.
