Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Savita.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, since you have become available to us in this earthly, everyday way, I have been amazed at the amount of fear I feel with you so close. It makes me want to hide from you. I love you so much, and I don't understand this fear. Can you explain?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, why are so many of your sannyasins German?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, I heard that some of the people that were named on last year's enlightenment list, which you subsequently declared to be a joke, still believe themselves to be enlightened, and have received a certificate to prove it. They say that you said it was a joke only out of your compassion for us unenlightened souls, to spare us from greed and jealousy. Can you please comment?
Question 4
Beloved Osho, when you were testing your enlightenment by smoking, drinking alcohol, and having sex, did you try eating fish and meat? Does a vegetarian diet have a real value for our consciousness, or is it optional, like smoking?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, were you always self-sufficient even as a child? Did you never need cuddling or hugging? Was your body free of this desire?
Question 6
Beloved Osho, I remember that I did go for rebellious things, but when I was turned down or shut off or dismissed, it hurt so deeply that I gave up. Can you tell us the secret of how to be strong enough to cope with the consequences?
Question 7
Beloved Osho, you come every day, dance with us, steal our hearts, smile and disappear. Are you a gypsy or something?
