Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Edited excerpt: 5min 25sec, a part of question 1 **
Beloved Osho, modern Christians are making desperate attempts to save their religion from its primitive, superstitious past -- and from the fundamentalists!
For example, a modernist in the church of England believes, it is said, in a God who works through evolutionary processes only, does not doubt the existence of Jesus Christ, but would not lose his faith if it were to be proved that Jesus never existed, and claims to believe in the supernatural, but not in the miraculous. His Jesus did not perform miracles and was not born of a virgin. The tomb was not empty. Ethics are more important to the modernist than doctrine.
Down the same path is traveling our old friend, the bishop of Durham, who got into trouble for his comments last year about the virgin birth and resurrection. He was recently quoted as saying, "Either God does not exist or else he must establish his own existence."
Is the resurrection of Christianity any more likely than that of a Jesus Christ himself?

Question 2
Edited excerpt: 4min 51sec, question 2 (question voiced over) **
Beloved Osho, this morning, as you spoke of the "questionless answer," I watched my questions dissolving into silence, which I shared for a moment with you. But one question survived, and that is: If we don't ask you questions, how are we going to play with you?

Question 3
Edited excerpt: 10min 38sec, question 3 (question voiced over) **
Beloved Osho, questions seem to be the offspring of the capacity to doubt; and doubt, the spark of an alive and active intelligence.
Without questions -- and thus, without doubt -- how can intelligence continue to flourish?
And yet within you is the ultimate in silence and the ultimate in intelligence.
