Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Hasya.
Question 1
Beloved master, it is a rumor in the air that you are being arrested today or tomorrow. What is your comment?
Question 2
Beloved master, is it just a coincidence that you started the neo-sannyas movement on September 26 and stopped it on the same day after fifteen years?
Question 3
Beloved master, please share with us your vision of the benefits of the arts for our process of growing towards ourselves, in therapy, meditation, worship.
Question 4
Beloved master, just the other day, Suman and I went off to Los Angeles via Portland to buy rainbow clothes. A funny thing happened. We thought we were incognito, wearing rainbow clothes and no mala. And somehow people in the shops and in the airport recognized us, commenting immediately: "Are you excited about the changes? Are you disillusioned? How is sunshine?" Each time we laughed and looked at each other in disbelief, because we had thought we were in disguise. Beloved master, would you care to say something about this?
Question 5
Beloved master, do you want to know the real story? Sheela left because she got raped. Vidya and Puja left because they didn't.
Question 6
Beloved master, what is the role of the commune as it is now, regarding therapy and meditation as offered in the university; and vice versa? And what is your vision of both their growth processes?
Question 7
Beloved master, I heard you say that the psychologist is slowly taking the role of the priest. Group leaders tend to become arrogant and often hallow themselves as authorities, well-disguised in humbleness. They thus give juice to their participants' dependency on authority, even though that is what they came to therapy to grow out of. Isn't this exploitation of trust even more dangerous than any other exploitation?
