Let G be a connected semisimple Lie group with finite center and without compact factors, P a minimal parabolic subgroup of G, and Γ a lattice in G. We prove that every Γ-orbits in the Furstenberg boundary G/P is equidistributed for the averages over Riemannian balls. The proof is based on the proximality of the action of Γ on G/P.
