Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Deva Kanchha
Osho, today when you talked about your father, for the first time it became very clear and close for me that everybody, I also, can become enlightened. Although you have said so many times that we are all buddhas in the center, I always felt it very very far away. Suddenly all your teaching from the last two and a half years became immediate, maybe because your father was kind of close for me. I saw him in his house eating a chapati, saw him taking his morning walk through the ashram -- and he became enlightened! Too much! I want to tell you that I had a great realization in lecture.
Question 2
Osho, what exactly do you mean by saying "be still and know" and also "seek the strength of no-desire"?
Question 3 from Sw ? Prashant
Osho, I always think of committing suicide, and wonder what you would say about my death?
Question 4 from Somendra
Osho, suddenly there you were yesterday just bending over your father, and I felt such love and joy and closeness seeing you in this natural situation that it is haunting me. It is as if a door opened and I saw something through it, something familiar and tremendous, and now it is gone. What was it?
Question 5 from Hilke Schmitz
Osho, this is not a question, rather a statement which should not offend you at all. Krishnamurti said lately in Saanen, Switzerland: A rose is not likely to bloom next to a guidepost.
I love roses, but also other flowers.
Question 6 from Sargam
Osho, why do I hate homosexuals?
Question 7 from Sw Prem Akal
Osho, each day you get more and more crazy. In the daytime when I think of you, I start laughing and think what a crazy, beautiful master I have. Osho, I just love you.
