Stories told by Osho have many spiritual messages and its characters or objects points to some most basic needs for spiritual enlightenment. The meaning i derive from this story and the basic needs towards these objects points as derived by me are here: This story is in agreement of principles of Chinese Mystic Lao Tzu that Tao includes both, the Yin and the Yang and still it is away from it enjoying by accepting both as important constituent of life. If a person has accepted only good qualities and habits then it is like a garden without Golden Leaves. It may looks good but unable to attain enlightenment or understand the truth or Tao or soul. In search of question “Who am I?” it is necessary to accept all your acts with gratitude because nothing is bad or sin, because it is the complimentary and balancing part of your personality to make you a whole. By hiding it or by not accepting it the equilibrium is lost that is needed to maintain in your search. That is why it is called as “The Golden Leaves”. It helps in opening up eternal treasure of in spiritual journey that brings eternal treasure of Ecstasy and bliss that can never be stolen from you without your consent. The more you share it, the more it increases…such is its nature. Actually once you achieve Tao or Soul or Saakshi bhaav, one immediately realises that neither the good acts belong to you, nor the bad, you are away from both. Hiding sin or bad means Ego is still governing you and unless and until ego/thought is completely dropped, mind cannot be brought to rest.
One may consider Golden Leaves as past failures, sin, mistakes etc etc. It is requested to share meaning that you derive from this story “Golden Leaves”.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.

Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.
Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
