shorttitle ITHAT12
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Vivek
Osho, for days now I have been on fire inside. I feel the unknown in part of me, and I am afraid to jump. Everything is cuckoo, and it's beautiful and scary at the same time.
Push me, Osho, on fire.
Question 2 from Sw Ajit Saraswati
Osho, years ago you seduced us, the blind, into buying your miracle mirrors. We bought them, thinking they were cheap and good-looking. But soon they showed us our ugly faces and we were scared. But before we broke those mirrors, you encouraged us to go on looking, to go on watching, to go on witnessing, and in bargain, you extracted from us the price of our very life.
However, looking back, Osho, I find I have not paid a thing to you. It has all been a gracious gift from you -- for nothing. How shall I say thank you, Osho, for all this, and for persevering with us and making us stick on until we really saw our original faces in the miracle mirrors of meditation?
Still I cannot keep wondering, Osho, why and how so many keep on missing you. Are they scared of the super-salesman?
Osho, what are they waiting for? Whom are they waiting for, when this gift of gifts is incessantly showering all over?
Question 3 from Sahajo
Osho, what is nostalgia?
Question 4 from Dick
Osho, aren't you ever afraid that instead of the creation of a new kind of man, this is the creation of a new kind of sheep?
Question 5 from Nartan
Osho, what is your definition of a politician?
Question 6 from Ma Anand Donna
Osho, once you told a joke for Purna who was leaving. I am staying. Will you tell a joke for me too?
