Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
CD-ROM on this chapter: These discourses are based on the sutras of the Mandukya and Isa Upanishads.
Question 1 from Anand Niketana
Osho, working at Amitabh, your Amsterdam center, for the last few years, I have become aware that in our contacts with the media or government agencies we have been on the defensive and have been trying to be acceptable. Now the pressure is building up, specifically with the recent Dutch government inquiry into what they call 'sects'.
It is coming to a point where becoming still more defensive would be a denial of our innermost experience. It feels that the time has come to be less accommodating, less compromising and less defensive.
Could you give us your guidance, please?
Question 2 from Sw Anand David
Osho, I have just realized that some of my laughter at your jokes comes because of my old-fashioned Christian morality -- a 'saintly' man would never say 'fuck' or 'shit'. Well, so much for saints. I am loving this bursting laughter, so share another joke with me.
Question 3 from Iqbal Kureshi
Osho, what you say between the jokes is beautiful, religious and spiritual.
But the jokes destroy your image in the public eye.
After all, what is the purpose of all these jokes?
