Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, soon I will be spending a few days with my two teenage daughters. They want a full-time mother and are angry that I have chosen to be with you instead of them. I am torn, because although I have been told that my greatest gift to them is getting free, it is only an idea. On the other hand, my desire for approval for being a good mother is very strong and I feel guilty being with you while they continue to suffer alone.
Would you please talk about how to break free of society's conditioning about motherhood?

Question 2
Edited excerpt: 7min 00sec, question 2 **
Beloved Osho, I realized this morning when you were talking that I am a fighter, but I don't know anything except fighting, that unfortunately I am a proud fighter -- and even worse, that I love fighting. I love to stand in the face of the strongest storm and laugh. It is great joy. I don't like to lie in the sun and melt. And yet behind my mind, my heart longs to melt. It yearns, but it never seems to have even a fighting chance. How can I salvage my being?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, what do you feel the next phase of your work will be, once you have found a stable residence, and what do you see your sannyasins doing?
Question 4
Beloved Osho, you are giving your life to help people find inner freedom, and the whole world is trying to take away your freedom -- that is, freedom of speech, of movement, and so on. How is it possible that you do not give up? What is compassion? Does compassion possess you like love, or can you choose whether or not to be compassionate?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, to have such an incredible opportunity to ask you a question, and to be so fearful of doing so, shows me how little trust I have. Can I still be your sannyasin?
