19th of may 1980 I 'took sannyas' or I 'became a disciple of' Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh at the Chuang Tzu Auditorium of His ashram in Pune (Poona), India.
I was 'with' Him with danish sannyasins in Copenhagen, Denmark, for many years without taking sannyas (becoming a devoted disciple). My friends kept asking me: 'When do you go to Poona and take sannyas?'. I told them: 'When He comes!'. I had heard Him saying several times: "It is NOT the disciple who comes to the Master, but vice versa: The Master comes to the disciple, when the disciple is ready."
After my 'special experience' an early morning in Denmark on His 49th birthday 11. December 1980 I was no longer a disciple.
