Many of the Zen monks have mentioned that wait for the right time and the true nature, which is the nature of a Buddha will manifest itself. So, a seeker is confused. Should he continue with his practices? Osho has answered this question in one of his books on Zen. Osho tells us that right time has already come. It is true that Buddha and many more Zen masters have said that the right time will come. Osho says, in this statement, the tricky part is, they are not talking about future but present. So, the right time is coming every moment. Each moment, remember that this is the right time. If we keep on waiting for some right time in the future, we are unnecessarily delaying the manifestation.
Last word of Buddha was Sammasati- The right remembrance. This last word of Buddha is also in resonance with what Osho says. Buddha has also asked to always remember that we are a Buddha. This is quite in tune with commentary of Osho on Zen. Keep remembering- This is the right time. This is the right moment for you. Buddha nature can manifest at this moment.
Whenever I go through any commentary of Osho on Zen, I get some answer. It has never happened that I did not get an answer, this itself shows that every moment is the right moment.
