There is a story about this song . . . In the 1982 Master's Day celebration at the Ranch, the Darshan on the final day was the grand culmination of five days. Energy was building as everyone waited for Osho to arrive at the Mandir. As he was driving up, this song began to play and the heavens opened up with sudden massive thunder, lightning and pouring rain. Dancers exploded, singers sang their hearts out and something happened to the crowd. It got "out of control," as they say, but those present were really present. They did not turn into a mob. But guards could not resist the flow of humanity that surged toward the stage as Osho entered. People near the front lifted those in front of them up to the stage and were lifted in turn by those behind them so that by the time Osho came in through the backstage entrance, there was a sizeable impromptu party waiting to greet him. Some of them got as close to him as they ever would in their lifetimes. And as the music subsided, those on the stage clambered off and found a place somehow on the floor.

This song went on possibly for much longer than planned, so two other songs on the programme were not preserved on the final tape of the Darshan, which had to fit into a 90-minute audiotape format. A link to that music can be found at the page with all the songs and words of this celebration.
