Nisargadatta Maharaj -
Hi! This is Maharaj. I am not home rightnow. But in reality, I have never left. I have been here before you called and will be here after you hang up.
Hello! This body-mind organism known as Ramesh is not available rightnow. Looks like that is your destiny. If it is Gods will, your call will be answered.
Hello! This is Gurdjieff............STOP!
My dear! I dont know who is calling. But if I were you, I would ask myself - Who am I? When you will find the answer, you wont need to call me again.
Sitting silently, doing nothing Phone rings, and answering machine starts by itself.
Gautam the Buddha
Life is suffering. To call someone is a suffering. When the person is not there, theres more suffering. You leave a msg., he doesnt reply answer your call so theres even more suffering. Remember! Life is suffering.
Kiranbhai (a disciple of Osho who generally says that there is no need to do anything. Enlightenment will happen by itself.)
Hello! This is Kiranbhai. I am not home righnow. But there is no need to call again, theres no need to leave a msg. and so theres no need to for me to call you back also. Infact, if you want to try, theres no need to pay your phone bill also. Thank you for calling!
Finally I dialed
but by mistake the line went to Lord Krishnas residence (the usual phenomenon in India). As we all know Krishnas famous quote was
Whatever happened, happened for good. Whatever is happening, is happening for good and whatever will happen will happen for good. What have you lost that you are cryig for? Whatever you have gained, you have gained here. Whatever you have lost, you have lost here. What belongs to you today, belonged to someone else yesterday and will belong to someone else tomorrow. CHANGE is the eternal rule of life. So dont focus on the result but do your karma.
Krishna- (his ans.machine detects wrong nos.automatically.)
My beloved! Although I am omnipresent, I am not available rightnow. And by the way, you have dialed a wrong number. But no problem. Whatever happened, happened for good. Whatever is happening, is happening for good and whatever will happen will happen for good. Why are you crying since you lost only one rupee. Whatever number you dialed, you dialed it right here. The number which is my today belonged to someone else yesterday and will be someone elses number tomorrow. CHANGE in the telephone numbers is the eternal rule of Indian telephone exchange. So dont worry about the result and just do your karma. Dial the right number.
Hello! This is Osho.....Never born, never died. Never picked up a phone. Only kept his answering machine ON. I leave you my dream.....and you leave your msg. after the beep. Yahoo!
