Interview by Sw Anand Veeresh & Ma Samadhi.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, I was sitting in Holland, and through everything that happened around you, I got really worried, so I just decided to come. I wanted to see you, I just wanted to see whether you are okay. I was so mad when I saw what happened to you, I got so angry.
I have a question -- I just made it up. What I see happening in Europe for the last months, is the attitude that religion is dead and leaders are "out." You have shown me the meaning of religion, and I consider myself a leader, so I decided to call myself a religious leader. Everybody freaked out, saying, "You are nuts -- that is not the thing to do today." I said, "That's why I'm doing it!"
Osho, what do you think?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, I don't want you to be worried about me. I haven't gone nuts organizing religions, don't be worried that I am doing that -- I am not that serious about it. I thought you would have a good laugh!
You think that I have gone nuts out there -- no, I was just trying to tell you, "Hey, Osho, I'm in your corner." I'm not telling people to join my team. No, don't worry about that.
No, I'm sitting here saying, "Oh, man! He thinks I've gone crazy!" No, no, no, no -- I was just adding a question. I thought she [indicating Samadhi] was going to do the interview, and I thought, "Here is a laugh for the end: 'Osho, I am a religious leader!'"
Question 3
Beloved Osho, I just thank you so much!
Question 4
Beloved Osho, I have been crying very much. I thought I was crying about you -- I think not. All the time I felt sad and so embarrassed for you, and I never want it to happen again!
I see a lot of people... I know that lots of people love you so much. They cannot take the stories of Sheela, the commune, but whenever they read your words or they read a book or they hear a thing, they feel you.
And I just wonder: How will it be possible for people still to have you available? There are no big centers anymore. How will it be possible?
Is there anything that can be done?
