am using all climates, I am bringing all the possibilities to you. It
has never happened
Buddha created only one climate, one energy-field, Buddha-field. Mevlana
Rumi created another, the Sufi-field. With Jalaludin only those gathered
natural Sufis, with Buddha only those who were natural Buddhists.
The word buddhafield is of tremendous importance. You have to understand
is what I am doing here
creating a buddhafield.
It is just to create a buddhafield
we are moving away from the world, far away, so that a totally different
can be made available to you.
buddhafield is an energy field in which a Buddha matures beings, a pure
land, an unworldly world, a paradise on earth, which offers ideal conditions
for rapid spiritual growth. A buddhafield is a matrix.
The word matrix comes from Latin; it means the womb. From that word
we get the words matter, mother, etcetera. The womb offers three things
to a newly forming life: a source of possibility, a source of energy
to explore that possibility, and a safe place within which that exploration
can take place.
That's why my effort is to create
a great Buddhafield, to release as much energy as is released in an
atomic explosion. And we have to spread
the color all over the world. This is the color of spring.
The enlightened person alone has an energy field of five miles; but
if he has a commune around him then there is at least a twenty-five-mile
radius ready to wake any sannyasin dying within it. Why it works there
is no way to say. It is just the same as other scientific laws, it is
also a scientific law.
A Buddha does not create, he triggers. Even to say he triggers is not
good; in his presence things happen, in his presence things are triggered,
processes start. Just his presence is a fire, a spark, and things start
moving and one thing leads to another, and a
great chain is created.
Be a lotus flower.
In the East the lotus flower symbolizes the essence of sannyas. The
lotus flower grows in the mud, dirty mud. It does not escape, it remains
there. It floats in the lake in water, but there is a beauty, a tremendous
phenomenon: it is in the water, but the water never touches it. It is
so velvety that in the morning if you go… and you will find dewdrops
gathered on the petals of the lotus, on the leaves of the lotus, and
they shine like pearls in the early morning sun. But they are not touching.
The lotus leaf or the lotus petal remains dry, it does not become wet.
The dewdrops rest there, but they remain separate.
That's the way of a true sannyasin: being
in the world but remaining untouched, unaffected by it.
