Osho's Birth: Osho's physical birth took place on December 11, 1931 in Kuchwada, a small village in Central India.

"I was incarnated into this body on this day. This is the day I saw for the first time the green of the trees and the blue of the skies. This was the day I for the first time opened my eyes and saw God all around. Of course the word 'God' didn't exist at that moment, but what I saw was God."~Osho

Osho on Celebration:

"In this world of consciousness, nothing is as helpful as celebration. Celebration is like watering a plant. Worry is just the opposite of celebration; it is just like cutting the roots. Feel happy! Dance with your silence. This moment it is there –enough. Why ask for more? Tomorrow will take care of itself. This moment is too much; why not live it, celebrate it, share it, enjoy it? Let it become a song, a dance, a poetry; let it be creative. Let your silence be creative; do something with it.

"Millions of things are possible because nothing is more creative than silence. No need to become a very great painter, world famous, a Picasso. No need to become a Henry Moore; no need to become a great poet. Those ambitions of being great are of mind, not of the silence."
